Can't believe how much these guys are dominating the races. Looks like the Cup will be going back down under.

I think the greatest pity about the rounds of the qualifers has been the appalling lack of mainstream media coverage, at least that is the case here in Oz. There has been some coverage on cable, but that has been either during the middle of the day when everyone is at work, or late at night.

It has been good racing...and as always the Kiwis are top flight competitors who will never give in.

How long will it be before the chinese have an all chinese crew to dominate? I'll wager that it will not be too long.

No doubt! Here in California the news is either Paris Hilton going to jail, getting out of jail, going back to jail or a body count in Iraq. Then we have those wonderful reality shows on every channel

VS Versus cable channel 74 is covering the cup races and without DVR, I wouldn't see much even there.
