Road Racing News Podcast Series 2 - Episode 4 - Same Thrills, Different Perspectives

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

What's changed, what's got better, more complicated, more expensive over the past ten years in pure road racing.

We cover how different the sport is compared to in the early 2010's, TV coverage, instant access, etc.

All the latest news is covered including the recent Greymouth Street Races, Thundersport GB action at Cadwell Park and next month's Motorcycle Live Online.

Road Racing News merch is given another plug! Plus there's another intriguing bamboozoler quiz question.

Everyone, welcome back to the otherresting US podcast. Madame Stevie, allies of other resting us, that curdy, okay, and, as always, BEEN TRYING TO BABA DAM Steve Row. Hello everybody. Right, well, for this week's podcast. Willfore wetalk our perissons changed over the past ten years, the aspects we feel whichyou have changed greatly, the aspects which haven't changed as much, and sowe got that particular with the really the commercial aspects. Yeah, it's totallyit's totally change at the end the last ten years. It was already changingbefore then. So where you add the just with loads of little sponsors andthings, which is still get a lot of the Irish gens, which isfantastic because it just shows the you know, the backings there. But for thebig events now you use it's really really commercial and executive. You know, if you'll pay the money you get you get to see everything and bein the right places and stuff, which is fantastic if you've got the money. But if you just saw rdinary, let's see, you would road racingfan and he turning up, it's he's getting a bit segregated now a fletsnoticed that cable park when it was the base b what you moved? Ican't member help up the moved all the teams down to the staff in hislab and there he don't get to see the other adders and it's segregated andthat's happening all over the place. That's my opinion, but I've Seen Davisout of it when everybody was all together easy. But that's progress and thingsevolved. The one thing that hasn't changed, or as well as road racing goes, pure road racing is the fantastic entertainment the scene. The rads thatare taking pair racing on the roads put on a fantastic show for the fans, and that's that hasn't changed at all. That still as good as it everwas in those regarding the commercial,...

...that's real TV coverages. It happensfor the sports of the North Wall and actually twice its solvers kept cable TVin it. Really, and because everybody's got one of these blooming phones thatdoes everything but whistle and and it's all. It's so, it's so. It'sso immediate into it, but slow it's like you'll know yourself doings reporting. It's just out there instantly. If you are on the instantly, youknow, I mean till the somebody wins a race, no matter where itis, it's out there in millie seconds into it. So that's changed.That's that's this Progressin't it? That's to so it is. The thing thathas changed, massively, though, is the the the end stream put on. The organ has has and the councils and the landowners, as wegards,they gislation and insurance, because the local authorities have to be heavily involved withit, NHS, the police, the fire brigade, and people tend toforget all that whole has to be in place before these lass especially now it'slooking you think, actually all yes, but there's a lot more, theheck of a lot more to any and it's proved the point with their scarborough. You know, there was no going back a bit, I suppose,but that that had to change and and from one thing and another it didn'tchange. But it has now, but as it has restrictions and everything.So you know, the a CEO, they have to a bad bad whatthe government states and legislation and it's old. It's just a different involvement of ofcourse, of their road racing also the other thing you say, whatwe tend to forget as well, is that the bikes are getting a lotmore powerful and a lot more fast there and the human brain can only textso much when you know as reaction times. Don't get me wrong, the ridsof risk. I don't know how to do it. I still don'tknow do it, but things change in...

...the get some that has to change, you know, they have to reduce power output and see, see oncertain say it's because that's just how it is. For maybe one of themain aspects to James has been in a supposed in particular in the look atthe TAT paracle. I remember in two thousand and thirteen it was it waseasy to could pop up to the easily to the you know, he stillcan't really to the factory under all they or you know, teams things likethat. Once you get close, if you could easily interview let's say,the leave races and big nowadays, I'd say. So you can still goaround the teams, around the paddles, but it's it's a lot hard enoughfrom my opinion as a journalist. Might be different for other yeah, yeah, but my opinions, like an how to speak to Pacific ground as.Let's yeah, that's well. Oh, yes, definitely take to bog thesame whatever in facial means. Couldn't. If your bills, I feel thesame. Yeah, all right, if you wanted the one of the toptop ones. Yeah, if you know, you just go in and do it, you know, to every late. But were glads everybody else. It'sso restricted in it, and I mean up that was a gaspect ofit's at part of changed in from two thousand and seventeen, where what usedto be pad of are with packs now in was put by. Yeah,well, that was all to deal with their fire regulation. Yeah, soso I did get. Oh Yeah, there's supposed to be so many metersapart. Well, but it change thee the field that. Oh Yeah,yeah, definitely, definitely. But but the put the the proof is inthe pudding when they're t t not last year, the year before there wasa great fire. Yes, so you know, the proof was in thepulling. There was that. That was there. Don't be yeah, butif they're have all been really close together in the middle of the lie.Yeah, and that got on fire,...

God knows what could have happened.So that's why they're separate now. Yeah, from where where the where the bikesarend the you know, the the big wagons and all the bikes andstuff. So I don't get that. So we're saying is and but itcan still walk around the majority of so, yeah, but the don't Pratt aboutthey always have to move everything about every year and change stop all thetime. I don't know how that all that. If you have noticed thisfor a lot of funds, when you see walking around, is the samethings that seeing the patter. It's all closed up to the funds will seethe walk come. Honestly, the bikes that are magicis working on it alldid. Yeah, I get that, but but it was a bit likeit's enclosing from yeah, I think it's the TT whyte the same as allthe motorcycle risking events, the marketing events as well at this yeah, youknow, because a lot of the rats are sponsored bag manufacturers, you know, people who do all sorts of kit and stuff like that. That soit's it's a big marking place in it. And also our experiences in the pressoffice the first time when it was in two thousand and thirteen and reallydid the that's a press office is road race wise haven't really changed too much. I'll do deal field things, though. Well, look, well, no, but but you is the years and years ago addictive, just tobe lots and lots of hospitality. Yesterday mentioned that there was, I thinkthere's a film on your show called risk of the power bikes. And thenI think it's Dave Croxford and Ye, Pete Williams. Yeah, and JohnPlay along and one of the Jad's Hum topos in that I think, likeJohn Brown are. John Brownie was motorcycle racing magazine, shamless, think itwas. It neared this. Yeah, but mega journalists. And he showsyou back under way. The journals would really a class, massive classes ofChampagne. And then there's buffing, you...

...know. Yeah, obviously now daysthat's a lot different. Now, if you always, if you look inyou quick enough, you can get it free its try frank not amaze.Some monks from free to will be looking to a few. Some use othermaybe get a bag of Christs. Actually. Yeah, yeah, happy days.And are also we got to Ben up and safety as of things andfor a lastly, Oh yeah, yeah, the days a straw bills on theside of the roll that rectors all. I have used to think that whenhe was Tomashas I think, bloody, I want it in one of these. But but the sat the out and ill this rector cell and it'smassively expensive. But boys where everything. It's where every penny. Yeah,I think the spent of hundred grandm on their rectoricellar and scarborough. Yeah,yeah, it's a lot better. Also, got to mention marshaling's got better.You're Maslin definitely improved. It's more there's more training and their cult communications, BA bet. Mean when you look at the radio systems that they've gotnow in place, you know it's like medium taking now it is so clearand everything and old linked up is really good. Yeah, wells. Wegot to mention traveling, as I think's was one of the aspects which hasn'treally change, because it's the savers same as ever. Just put the onlydid done. The only differences it costume are and there's more and more traffic. That's but there's there's one thing that hasn't changed and it's the pure,pure wrist on the roads, still as exciting as it's ever ever been.So in a tech me out after all them guys will really yeah, seems, and sponsors will put them on the track. The past decade has beenmore positives and negatives for the spot. Obviously it's something big. I couldhave better. I think most people will...

...complain and have never been to aroad race and then everybody's inside to the point of view, but usually yourfaan that the most people will complain about. We have never buving been so toerase me. So they don't know what they're on about. I wantedthe news.
