Speech impairment.

That Simon Crafar and the woman with teeth and hair who interviews the riders or pit lane comments. They both have speech impairments. Maybe this is the new inclusion ruling.
My partner who has military grade hearing can’t understand them.
Is it just the MotoGP UK network or do you also have to suffer?

I have a hard time with the commentators for the smaller classes. One is a giggler and the other is a mumbler. Nick Harris was extremely irritating but at least you could understand the incorrect information coming out of his mouth.

I understand them fine, strong English accent notwithstanding. Not sure what you mean by speech impediments. Can you post a clip as an example? And yes those of us enrolled with VideoPass get the Brits— as a Texan, I personally enjoy them!

I don't have a problem with the accents of the guys commentating the lower classes. I understand them fine. I haven't watched a moto2 or moto3 race this year but from the bits I've caught here and there, the commentating isn't very engaging.

I have to say, I liked Simon Crafar as a rider, his insights as a pit lane guy are quite reasonable, but I really can't stand his voice, much though I have tried to overcome this

I wondered if it was just me. Good commentary, but he does make me think of a nerdy fat kid trying to impress girls by spouting statistics and finer points of civics discourse. I'm always thinking, Get yerself a cup of coffee mate!
