I found the other thread, thanks. I don't see how anyone can say that FS1 is in any way a substitute for the Speed Channel. 5 overweight guys giggling and laughing about sophomoric pranks during the good old days of "camp" (I assume they are not talking about summer camp in the catskills), is not in any way a replacement for a motor oriented channel. I guess that when they lost Formula 1 they saw the handwriting on the wall.
So, I had my choice of an interminable conversation between guys who I would not ordinarily stop to pass the time of day, or a futbol match between Fenerbahce SK and Arsenal FC which I was assured was being played in "excellent tempo", but in which I had not the slightest interest. And I watch soccer whenever I have an interest in either team.
Oh well. Must not be that many gear heads left.
