I'm trying to get into AMA races, but I can't understand half of what's coming out of the announcers mouth!  Sadly, I have a better understanding of the Queens English during MotoGP when Gavin Emmett and Nick Harris commentate!

I'm trying to get into AMA races, but I can't understand half of what's coming out of the announcers mouth!  Sadly, I have a better understanding of the Queens English during MotoGP when Gavin Emmett and Nick Harris commentate! 

One big problem with the AMA coverage is that the producer (whoever) doesn't filter out enough background engine noise so you have to screen out the din to hear the commentary. The announcers also tend to get much more technical about what they are talking about than the FIM or MotoGP guys. So if you aren't familiar with the rules, the mechanical side of things or all the different names of the riders, their support teams and the history then you can lose a bit. It's taken me over 3 years of watching to really start getting into AMA but the quality of racing is sure worth it.  Their English, even with the southern accents, is just fine. I ain't got no problm t'all 'standin them.   Grin

All that said it was very gratifying see DiSalvo do so well on the Triumph 675 and big kudos to Danny Eslick on the EBR 1198 not to mention Fillmore on the KTM!! Shake up those Suzukis and Yamahas!   Dolph

I do love the videography, which is much better than WSBK and have no problem with the technical details.  You're right, the audio quality is very poor...which doesn't help the very thick & deep country accents!

Definitely!! Perhaps the best race of the WSBK race season so far. 4 guys fightin' it out for 1st place.  I don't know why I even bother with MotoGP anymore.  Roll Eyes

Watched Race 2 tonight. Holy Crap!!  5 guys fighting for 1st! Can't believe the ending. I had to save the race in order to watch the replay as no replay from Speed. How can they not show the ending in slo-mo at least several times? ?  Someone got robbed!!

Seriously, they could totally dump MotoGP and we wouldn't miss a thing.  Roll Eyes

They would have shown it a dozen times if it would have been NASCRAP...

Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.
