SPEED has announced a new, weekly TV show featuring AMA Pro racing beginning March 21 at 10:00 or 11:00 pm ET.
The show is primarily road racing. It will feature flag-to-flag coverage of AMA Pro Racing’s American Superbike and Daytona Sportbike, coverage of other road racing classes, and highlights of other AMA Pro disciplines.
Supercross announcer Ralph Sheheen will host the in-studio segments, Rolex sports car announcer Leigh Diffie will handle race coverage, and former Two Wheel Tuesday host Greg White will be responsible for pit coverage. The show will feature guest interviews, expert analysis, and industry news.
This looks like a really good show. It would be nice if they’d add some Moto-X coverage, but maybe we’ll get there. The on-air talent looks good with Diffey and White supporting Sheheen. I’m softening on Sheheen. If he’s willing to put the time and effort in to really push the sport I have to give the guy props. It’s been a long time — since Dave Despain hosted Motoworld back in the ’80s — since we had a full-on moto racing show. Wish I had a Tivo.
