The footage is garbage compared to what itv had before with robbie head etc. No jwrc coverage apart from kris's contact with latvala. And a couple of seconds to mention the death of a competitor, is indeed a disgrace.

Totally agree.ITV had a brilliant package last year,dont know why they gave it up.
The commentator on the new programme hasnt a clue either,and it makes it worse when Peter Collins just repeats the same sceal as her for the RTE coverage!!!

Peter Collins just doesnt cut it as a commentator for motor sport,F1 or WRC. Sorry bud but please go back to the eircom league of Ireland

Looks like ITV have given up on the WRC, firstly by getting rid of their own presenters and commentating team and now relegating the program to the graveyard shift. Seems they spent all the budget poaching Steve Ryder for F1.

The actual footage and features aren't that bad, but would be better if they mentioned more of the UK and Irish drivers as well as the JWRC or PWRC runners. On Rally Argentina, Gareth McHale didn't even warrent a mention despite finishing 10th.

Maybe they should give the RPM team a go.
