There are very good channels in youtube. try Rallymedia for the european rallys. They have even better images than the official feed :deal

Then Fernischumi also does videos (with music though...) of every round.

Official WRC channel, Jmlatvalafan

and amjayes, anttikalhola or mastercsizi for classic videos.

In Spain we do not have WRC in TV either, appart from short 5-10 minute clips every now and then in the news.

wrk2surf 01-16-2012 02:50 PM

velocity channel (formerly HD theater) has been showing WRC for two years!

Iron Horse 01-16-2012 04:33 PM

Jmlatvalafan should be showing up. I told him to start a WRC thread. :deal

Glad you started this one.

I went to their sucky web site and it shows nothing about WRC :huh

wow.. missed some driver team changes... VIA WRC

Seven world champions, six winners of world championship rallies, a double European title-holder and the inaugural FIA WRC Academy Cup champion are among those set to tackle the motorsport showpiece from 17-22 January.
Sebastien Loeb, world rally champion for the past eight seasons, heads the entry in his Citroen Total World Rally Team DS3 WRC. Joining him in the French squad is new team-mate Mikko Hirvonen, who switched from Ford during the close-season. Highly rated Belgian Thierry Neuville will compete in a privateer DS3.
Finn Jari-Matti Latvala heads Fordís challenge in a Fiesta RS WRC alongside Petter Solberg, who returns to the Blue Oval for the first time since 2000. A further six Fiesta RS WRCs will also be in action on the asphalt event with former Monte Carlo winner Francois Delecour the pick of the bunch in his private entry.
Spaniard Dani Sordo continues to front MINIís WRC bid although regular team-mate Kris Meekeís seat has been taken by emerging French star Pierre Campana. British talent Meeke remains part of MINIís world championship effort but his programme for 2012 has yet to be finalised.
Portugalís Armindo Araujo and Brazilian Paulo Nobre will pilot a brace of privateer MINIs, meaning there will be a total of 16 World Rally Cars in action.
As well as counting as round one of the 2012 WRC, Rallye Monte-Carlo is also the first round of this seasonís Super 2000 World Rally Championship. Inaugural WRC Academy champion Craig Breen will be among the frontrunners in his Fiesta, while double Junior world champion PG Andersson and twice European champion Giandomenico Basso form Protonís factory line-up.
Pole Michal Kosciuszko and Italian Lorenzo Bertelli are among those in contention for Production Car World Rally Championship honours.
Other notable runners include seven-time WRC event winner Sebastien Ogier in a Volkswagen Motorsport-run Skoda Fabia, former Junior championship ace Kevin Abbring and last yearís Rallye Monte-Carlo winner Bryan Bouffier

In the latter half of 2011, the Velocity coverage trailed by two weeks. Not quite the same day coverage we had a few years back via Speed(vision) but the Velocity coverage is pretty good if you can stand the delay. All in all the current coverage is about 5 hours per event which is more than Speed used to do, just a shame it's delayed. Nothing listed yet for 2012, but their guide doesn't quite reach out to two weeks beyond the Monte yet so we'll see.

And where is Nassar in the lineup? He's also with Citroen I thought.

This just seems wrong to me. :lol3

I've been rooting for Hirvonen the last few years in hopes of him dethroning Loeb. But now with the same car/team?... :dunno

Hello F5ers. :freaky

As mentioned, Eurosport will start their coverage tomorrow night 23:00 CET. I think they are just doing the Monte Carlo and not the whole season. A year or two ago they attempted live coverage of (IRC) Monte Carlo rally. They learned that time rally isn't very televisable. You need great commentators to make those repetitive images interesting.
Their may be some streams here. Check tomorrow.

Torrent with a few shakedown videos showed up an hour ago on RU (RacingForMe).


I can't wait for it to begin.
Too bad that cocky French lad doesn't have a competitive ride this year but there are plenty of mix-ups to keep the fun going.

wrk2surf 01-17-2012 02:09 PM

me too..love the underdog... sad that Petter has went back to factory a little too..

Naseeeer only ran a few last year and im sure he wont be on loebs team..

He has clearly chosen to be the "watercarrier". Loeb will always be the nr.1 driver in CitroŽn.
