RIP SpeedTV and SpeedTV.com!

 

SpeedTV and SpeedTV.com have died and been replaced by Fox Sports1. I wanted to have a full eulogy written but sadly I didn’t get it finished in time, I want to do it justice. Whatever problems SpeedTV had, and it had many, are irrelevant today. The American Motorsports Community lost a major partner today. We were better off WITH Speed than we will be without it. RIP SpeedTV. RIP SpeedTV.com. You will be missed.

  1. I watched speed channel every day so what is a gear head going to do; outside of racing the fox 1 channel sucks!!! What the hell are us GEARHEADS and HOTROD guys suppose to watch now? This Fox sports B.S. is total Bunk! The loss of Speed channel is very disappointing, and for that, a loss of A LOT of viewers!YOU TOOK AWAY THE ONLY GEARHEAD CHANNEL AND TURNED IT INTO A GENERIC PIECE OF CRAP FULL OF THE SAME THING ON EVERY OTHER GENERIC SPORTS CHANNEL!!

    • I liked some of those shows. But I can’t say I loved the reality tv ones much. As for gearhead shows there’s always Top Gear (UK) which is good. I find Fast and Loud/Count Custom’s alright too.

    • Also, look around at some of the PBS stuff (online is a good way to go) they do have a few car related shows, or shows that feature great automobile museums and events.
