I see a lot of talk on other forums that WRC wont be on eurosport this year and that the itv coverage will be in the middle of the night like Channel 4 done it.
What a load of balls if this is true no wonder all the teams are pulling out of the wrc, it looks like its goin to die on its feet.

Tis backwards they are going with it. Remember back in 1999 they showed final stages in Corsica, and Finland live on eurosport, and awarded points for the top 3 on the stage. 7 years on and I dont think we have seen a live stage since and the coverage is getting worse all round.
Richards would want to pull the finger out. Did anyone see his interview in Motoring News last week. He basically said that just having one car on the screen against the clock wasnt good enough and they would have to try some other angle with it to make it more appealing..... Thats why its called RALLYING not RACING for goodness sake. The sport will be ruined

ITV coverage is on UTV at 4.25pm on Sunday afternoon but it's the actual Eurosport style coverage i.e. Issy Clarke and Paul King presenting it so we should have more action and less analysis! :laugh:

Deal has now been done and the WRC will be on Eurosport! Only for one year though which is giving weight to the rumour that Eurosport will back the "rival" S2000 based championship...

Hello, all. I live in Memphis, TN. USA. Recently I just found out that Speed channel will not be airing WRC anymore. Damn ******** over here love Nascar more than porno. I'm not sure what the hell I'm gonna do without coverage.

I have a quesiton regarding video of WRC coverage.
Is anyone around here capturing any of the coverage into a digital format for transfer over the internet? At this point I'd almost pay for someone to do this for me. I've got a thousand people about to freak out if we can't watch this years season. Just trying to ask around for available coverage of each upcoming rally. I appreciate it!

Supersoul, there are rumours that OLN network will piuck up WRC coverage. It showed the Paris-Dakar this year after Speed rejected it too. Those who foresaw catastrophic programming for Speed when it was taken over by FOX are being proven correct.

What's been on Speed TV all weekend? Why a car auction and extremely tiresome coverage of Nascar testing. That's right - testing.

Come on OLN, do us all a favour....
