How Live is "Live"?

I was watching the V8 Supercars this afternoon - it was shortly after 4.30pm, Ingall had just squeezed past Ambrose and the lap count was in the high 30s. Cut to an ad break, and on resumption of the telecast we're on lap 48 and Ingall has a five second lead. So much for the supposedly live telecast.
As usual the commentary was immensely entertaining. In one interview, driver Steven Ellery talked about being caught in a catch-21 situation. Later another driver was descrbed thus - "His main strength is that he is fast, and he is consistent." Right. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. Our main weapon is surprise, and fear...
What next - the Comfy Recaro?
