This is terrible news. I'll have to do what I already do with the non BBC F1 races ... find a European satellite channel that shows it for free ... currently I watch German RTL which shows all the F1 races that I can't see on UK broadcast TV.

Short term they have scored a decent amount of money, I guess.  But how much long term damage will it do to the sport?  

If people do not have free access [apart from football] to a sport then the mass[relative] audience disappears and, in this case, motorcycling drops off peoples radar.  So what then happens to the sale of motorcycles in UK and all the merchandise?  If you don't see Pedrosa, Rossi and Crutchlow etc racing, why would you buy their merchandising and how do the other advertisers get their products in front of you?
