MotoGP may have been the main motor sport event during the last weekend of September, but the coverage on BBC Two failed to make BARB‘s Top 30, official viewing figures show (or in MotoGP’s case, don’t). The race programme, from Aragón, averaged less than 1.09 million viewers on BBC Two.
Also failing to make the charts was coverage of the British Touring Car Championship, which averaged less than 218,000 viewers. The Goodwood Revival 2013 fared better on Thursday evening, also on ITV4, with 254,000 viewers or 283,000 viewers if you wish to include the +1 equivalent. Staying with the classic theme, and two archive programmes made BBC Four’s top ten. Grand Prix: The Killer Years averaged 535,000 viewers, whilst a repeat of Hunt vs Lauda: F1’s Greatest Racing Rivals averaged 409,000 viewers.
Over on Sky Sports F1, The F1 Show averaged 37,000 viewers or 74,000 viewers across three airings. Pretty disappointing, as it was one of their better efforts this year with Nigel Roebuck in the studio. For anyone wondering where the Korean Grand Prix ratings report is, as of writing no ratings have been reported. I am hopeful, that Broadcast’s top 100 in their magazine this week will include the relevant ratings, so hopefully a report is coming later in the week.
