Who was that twit doing the commentry on the RPM IRC programme? He was absolutely useless & didn't even attempt to pronounce the Irish names correctly.:mad: Even if he was reading from a script he could have done better than that! He called it the Donegal COI instead of the Donnelly COI & continually called Donagh Kelly Dohan. It sounded very amateur & as it hadn't been edited properly, not the normal rpm style.

It wasn't an RPM show. It was the eurosport coverage shown on UTV for those without Sky.

For me it wouldn't matter how bad the commentary was as the helicopter tracking shots were stunning and made up for any other faults in the show.

I agree, helicopter shots were great, I was analysing every shot trying to figure out if I knew the sections since the Friday stages are in my area hehe. But am I right in saying some years ago there was a ban imposed on rallies that you couldn't have choppers crossing the stage or a certain distance while the stage is running? If so how come the camera chopper got pretty close during the stage, or is/was that only applicable in the South ?

I think the ban was introduced after Kalle Grundels Circuit accident in the RS200, but don't know how or why it wasn't enforced

Just a reminder that RPM's coverage of the Circuit, concentrating on the Irish entries, kicks off tonight on UTV @ 11.05 pm, presented by Toni Kelly.
Tonight reports on Day 1, with next week's programme reporting on Day 2.

A cousin of my dads used to work for rte sport and he mentioned that a helicopter crash during the Nissan classic bike race back in the early 90s and that put paid to that, not sure if the two are linked at all though mind.
