  1. competition well worth entering for anybody he goes to British GP. With Kangaroo TV in hand you get more info about what is happening on the track than you can ever get at home from internet or TV – unless of course you follow the Live Blog :-)

    I wish the Kangaroo TV feed was online. The video would be impossible due to TV rights, but at least the data …

  2. Milos, I normally have live timing from going when the gp is on, it is alot more informative than the commentary

  3. Live timing is fine, but not as interactive as the Kangaroo TV …

  4. I used Kangaroo TV for race day in Oz this year. Great to have, and really lets you know what’s happening to drivers when they seem to go missing. The only danger is that you may find yourself watching the whole thing on Kangaroo! Don’t be THAT guy!

    The unit is easy to navigate through, but you probably won’t use all the features for long. Well worth giving it a go though, and the price is not bad. Sunday in Melbourne was AU$80 from 9am-6pm.

    Good job I wasn’t going to the race.

  9. I would love to win this competition i think the answer to win pole position was Lewis Hamilton last year in Silverstone 2007.
