In a world of fake news I'd be taking those figures with a pinch of salt ( viewership not the budgies with bulges figures..) same with F1 and anything pay-to-view, my back of doonbeg trump napkin calculations say it's glossed it up by about 5000% to tell the sponsors what they want to hear, sick people, sick people.

There are lies, damned lies and statistics. How often have we heard that quotation and, while nodding in approval, how many of us know from whom it came? The answer, actually, is none of us because while it has been attributed to the American author and philosopher Mark Twain and to the great British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli, there are half a dozen others of that century (the 1800s) who can lay claim to it.

If you are of a cynical disposition you may wonder if some of those race meeting attendance figures dished out to a somewhat gullible media are for real. They are. However, attendance is everyone who came through the gate, paying or not. That includes aforesaid media, discerning harley rider with tassels and tatts making mutual hitherto suggestive eyebrow movements while looking for friendship and maybe more, van owners, circuit officials, litter pickers, all the teams, et al. Paid attendance is a whole different game. Attendance is for sponsors, paid attendance is for the VAT man, and never the twain.

The same cannot be said for TV audience figures. But as they are rarely made available to the public it can come as something of a surprise when revealed. And they illustrate the dilemma faced by promoters when deciding whether to award television rights to a terrestrial broadcaster, the BBC or ITV, or a satellite/ cable company like Sky or BT.

The former will give you millions and millions of eyeballs, the latter millions and millions of pounds. For many sports the latter has been irresistible which means that the traditional broadcasters are largely out of the game.

The UK has a population of 66 million, of which 2 Million are subscribers to BT sport and 12 Million to Sky TV.

The following are figures for British audiences of MotoGP, WorldSBK and British Superbikes for the final events of their seasons (plus an F1 race for measure). They are obtained via set-top boxes installed in thousands of households by the Broadcasters Audience Research Board, a body whose job it is to provide audience numbers as accurately as you can get for the television companies :

MotoGP (BT) Valencia Nov 12, final round: 187,000
WorldSBK (Eurosport) Qatar Nov 5, final round: 33,000
BSB (Eurosport) Brands Hatch Oct 22, final round: 129,000
F1 (Sky) Mexico, Oct 29, third last round: 797,000

Lies, damned lies or statistics? BT's share price is the lowest its been for four years. That is why it is highly unlikely BT will be covering MotoGP in 2019 and Discovery Eurosport will.
