Over the last week or so there has been lots of news about North One Television loosing the TV rights for the WRC and Eurosport becoming the promotor etc. All very sad for the companies and individuals concerned etc, etc.

However has anyone got a clue as to when the WRC will be shown on UK TV and on which chanels. Before you all say Eurosport UK - i have looked and nothing showing for the next week (bear in mind Monte starts 17th Jan.

No info on www.WRC.com either (not suprising seeing as it is run by North One!)

Motors TV (on their web site) say they will be covering the event;

Wed. 18.01 22:35
WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MONTE-CARLO DAY 1

Thu. 19.01 1:15
WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MONTE-CARLO DAY 1

Thu. 19.01 9:00
WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MONTE-CARLO DAY 1

Thu. 19.01 13:10
WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MONTE-CARLO DAY 1

Thu. 19.01 15:45
WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MONTE-CARLO DAY 1

But they get their footage from ...... North One.

Anyone know any more??

Well, that bites. Not to mention it will probably add fuel to the fire about the WRC and IRC merging, since Eurosport already runs the IRC. What a very odd situation. I was just looking on the WRC website last week for the latest TV info, and it was still pointing at ESPN for UK coverage.

Quote this afternoon on the British Rally Forum -

Apparently Stage One Technology trucks have been turned around enroute to the Monte and the Eurosport deal is close to collapse.

The next post says -

planetemarcus BILLIOT Jérémie
#WRC FIA & Eurosport close to deal for 3 years include Rallye Monte-Carlo - Announcement for tomorrow bit.ly/zzWRtP @voiceofrally

Watch that space then


Cheers - Phil

The Rally Radio team are still posting on Facebook but its all been covered above so far.

Facebook Linky - I don't think you have to be registered to see this but surely everyone is on Facebook...

They are talking confidently about there being "radio" coverage so that's looking hopeful.

At this rate the coverage will all be via Youtube and all those fans uploading vids from their phones

Nothing on the Ralio+ website either - very sad. Though welsh language on S4C, all the driver interviews (except Gwyndaf!) were done in English.

OK - let's see what happens (fingers crossed).

In the meantime, let's get in the mood with Seb Ogier testing his Skoda;


Better footage here (but i can't embed the video)

And Ford

Are you a member of any of the specialist motorsports torrent websites ? Broadcasts tend to be available there not long after they have aired. Well, depending on the time of day that they air.

Type in 'Eurosport Player' into Google. For £4 a month, you get full access to all the Eurosport channels, streamed live online, including the HD channel.

Not only do you get the WRC, but the IRC, BSB, Le Mans, and the ILMC and the WTCC, as well as other racing series.

Crackin!

Oh My God, just had a Twilight Zone moment while watching these clips


Hit the play button and reached over to turn on the speakers so i could hear the engine noise,
So of it goes atmospheric shots of the Skoda over a good music track, when that ended I clicked the Ford one, Music ends and over the engine note I can hear a guy speaking about the Atlas mountains and how he'd been picked up over his pronunciation of some French words. As I listen, I'm thinking "I recognise those northern tones"

The clip runs, showing the car being chucked around in the French mountains with the guys still talking about random stuff, I figure its some arty way of producing the Vid.

Then when the pictures stopped the sound track carried on!! I'd not realised that the iPlayer was on when I switched on the speakers and the guy was still talking about the Atlas mountains as he as he had been when I rolled the video!!!!!


BTW It was Shaun Keavney BBC R6
