Hi, i have been watching the 2012 season of US dragracing on espn and the footage is beyond spectacular.
i want to buy some (hopefully) bluray footage.
I have looked on youtube and there is nothing worth watching on there, and google brings up some sites but not specifically dragracing

Has any one got any good links for where i could get some 2011 footage?

I should buy a HD recorder or media center pc

You could probably get it illegally via torrents etc if your morals allow.

If it's coming from sky, it's pretty hard to record it (so that its not stuck in the MySky). If it's on Freeview, then that would be the easiest way of getting it.

Does amazon sell blurays with it?

I've had a quick dig around and found squat. Pretty long shot, but maybe try contacting ESPN via their website and asking?

it is pretty awesome footage Zippity, my favourite motorsport so why not eh??
Psycik, not sure if they even sell them so it is a long shot
It is on espn tonight at 7-9 if you want to see what i mean, when they show the slomo action of 8000hp trying to get off the line, and 2 drivers running 6.733 seconds each i was pretty amazed
Thanks Wratt, probably wont bother with them.

There are online US TV Internet websites like isky NZ, e.g. TV Online Net, (http://www.tvonlinelive.net/) where you maybe able to download. But might require installers.

TBH I'm surprised, there doesn't seem to be any. I had a look at the NHRA site.

I did find on a *ahem* other site, some 720p Drag racing, but funnily enough the only footage I could find was AHDRA (Australian).
