If I was not constrained by average 12 minute parts I could cover the entire races with NO cuts, as I used to do when all I did was cover events for DVD. What Chris does (the "best karting race video coverage" I think he calls it) is nothing new. I was green screening drivers for grid positions and other graphics back in 2003, and a lot of what I did then would stand up today favourably against what he does now. What I didn't see was feature interviews, pre-race interviews, podium interviews, promotion of the sport, how to get involved etc., all of which should be included in the best kart race coverage, unless it is just that, race coverage and nothing else, which is what it seems to be.

Editing a race for YouTube or DVD is simple. Editing for TV is a different animal entirely.

There are only a few ways to cut a 15m plus a lap into a 12 min average part that features Ad break graphics (10s), feature or pre-race interview (90s to 3mins maybe), result (20s) Podium Interviews (1m) and outro (5s), so the race is around 7-8 mins maybe..... and I have done it every different way you can. The current method I actually like the best now so I am going to stick with that as it shows the action we have filmed (not that we film every overtake with a 3/4 manned camera crew, static cams and helicam crew). The Superprix had two/three races per part, not something I like to do, but that was the job, and only really possible as they were 10-12 lap races. If it was 15 mins and a lap I would not like to attempt two races into one part, as all you would see would be highlights and not much more.

For TV, the edit process is edit original footage and graphics in HD, then encode for SD, then ftp to the server which then goes through another (carbon coder) encoding process at the other end reducing the SD image quality even further to achieve the bandwidth restriction for broadcast.....

It will change to some degree when Motors TV has an HD channel.... which was supposed to be two years ago. It is currently not even in the planning due to the additional bandwidth costs for them to do it.
