I think WRC television coverage is quite up in the air for everybody, at this point, given the FIA's insistence on the new 'Milles Pistes' style of recce, rather than the recce format that has been used for the last number of seasons. It either means rallies have to start incredibly early in the day, or run well past the schedules dictated by the tv production people.

This new system is going to mean LONG days for everybody, problems getting spectators in place, etc. Maybe it will save money, but it sure won't help safety (especially if they ditch the gravel cars). But I digress to another thread, which is best served in a different forum.

I found a couple referances to the Rally-Xtra for the Monte, but no 2hr block like this year.

Keep your fingers crossed....I only spend the 10 bucks more a month to get speed for WRC, they better not stop coverage, since the other 99.95% of the programming is NA$$CAR

What about SCCA rally coverage for 2004?

Hey, I love WRC just as much as anybody, but I am more interested to know about the SCCA series TV status... It's awfully quiet out there in big announcement land.

Anybody see the Japanese touring cars last night? Very cool, even showed Eric Comas screwing up (did I hear a chuckle Julian?)... but what I really want to know is, a) who paid Speed to air that show? and b) how much did it cost? I admit I didn't pay alot of attention to the advertising, but I can promise you that Mazda and Nissan and Toyota and Ferrari weren't putting up any money for the broadcast...

Which begs the question:

Why do *we* have to pay so much?

Don't you watch any classic films???
Wasn't it Garth and ???? who on their knees bowed repeatedly in traditional suplication and said in unison:
"We're not worthy!, We're not worthy! We're not worthy!"



Jeeeeze, you kids need some cultcha.
