?Urgent Notice To all American Rally Fans and Competitors?

As the Rally season comes to a close, I believe a certain group of people need to be commended on a particularly good job. What we have seen with this season's coverage of both the WRC and SCCA Pro Rally has been absolutely superb. As many of us have been worried about the fact that Speed TV will be predominantly NASCAR in the near future, now is the time to tell them that you want more rallying. This morning, I spoke with the producer of WRC for Speed TV. I was informed that they may have to cut back on Rally coverage due to low ratings. With this, Speed TV suggested a 2 hour show to air 1 week after the event. Although, they also suggested moving the time slot forward to
8 pm so they can possibly gain more viewers.

With the recent visit of Nicky Grist to the WRC television coverage, the program has taken another leap forward with an exciting and new view to this sport. Perhaps next season (with your input to Speed TV) we can have Nicky Grist coverage all season and perhaps get to see him on screen here in the United States and maybe even at our own SCCA rallies. If people can take just a quick moment of time and email the producers of Speed TV and let them know that they?re doing a great job, and that you would like more Nicky Grist commentary, more WRC coverage, and more SCCA Pro Rally, we can continue to enjoy the sport we all enjoy so much.
Please send all your comments to the following address.
Email: [email protected]
This address is monitored daily by everyone from the top execs. at Speed TV to the program producers. Your comments really do matter!!

If we don?t show them feedback we will lose rallying on TV!

Guys and Gals pass this on and post it where ever you can.......You WON'T be stricken with bad luck or anything , but it is very important -Thanks Marty

Nicky's coverage is the best thing I have seen in a long time.
And not having seen any of this year's SCCA coverage until
recently I was very impressed. Save the map graphics it was
really quite good. (WildWest) I sent my email to Speed asap.

Hey Paul,
I sent my e-mail to Speed as well. Everybody send a comment to them and show your support for the sport and the coverage for both WRC and United States rallys. Also there should be a couple from the Canadian rally's as well. Come on show your support guys and gals!

Response from SpeedTV

I received this URL from Kristen Morris at SpeedTV in response to my letter:

http://insider.speedtv.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Forum&file=viewtopic&topic=2726&forum=14&0

For convenience, here's the important bit:

We have recieved your e-mails.....not sure who started the campaign but we have recieved them. To clarify a few things, first, we are not talking about reducing coverage of WRC. We were looking at scheduling the same amount of hours in a different way to attract new viewers.

Secondly, we understand that most of you like things the way they are.

Please do not feel you need to respond to this. Since I was the one who asked for input, I want to also be the one to thank you for giving it to us, (the input I mean), And we understand your perspective.

This e-mail is in response to all of the comments sent to "viewer mail" so you may not recieve an individual response as usual. Thanks again
