Well, well, well. WRC is on Speed. They show a one-hour highlight on Monday. Unfortunately, I missed it this morning and the next one isn't until May 28th...

I use the following link for racing listings, even though it's from the US much of it applies in Canada, to help you keep track of the races, etc.

What? Racing on Speed? Have they gone mad?

But seriously, i watched the Argentina Rally and the coverage was okay but could benefit from more emphasis on track action. I usually download torrents of the rallys and the 3X25 minutes format provides more time to develop a narrative. In the torrents, you have the results of every single stage and they show more of the non-leading drivers.

We're still far from the glory days of SpeedVision with their three days of coverage but it's a step in the right direction. At least we don't have to wait six months to watch the broadcast like they do with the BTCC and DTM.

So, after being on Speed for the latter part of 2012, it appears there is no WRC for North America?

http://www.wrc.com/fanzone/wrc-tv-guide/

The TVRacer link had a TBA January 20th for WRC, but now nothing...

Perhaps they will be delayed?

Anyone used this site for stuff we don't see here like WRC, Dakar? http://www.sntv.com/sntv-digital

I think it's only going to be shown on the Speed2 online service.

Went to the WRC.com website today and there's lots of video to stream there. Quality not HD, but not bad.

What's with the name Seb anyway? (Loeb, Ogier, Vettel)

Apparently it's now a pre-requisite for winning the championship

I continue to watch and enjoy the WRC via the WRC website. Usually an hour to 1.5 hours coverage for each event.

For anyone interested, here's a very good video of Seb Loeb doing Pikes Peak obliterating the record and all competition.

For 2014, the WRC website has not had the three "full coverage" highlights. Rather they have highlights of each day at only about 2-3 minutes each, or they have coverage of stages with about 1 minute per stage, so overall you can watch perhaps 15-20 minutes instead of what used to be closer to 75-80 minutes.

In addition they often have some good in-car highlights - say an entire stage from one of the drivers. Those are typically quite interesting and I often cannot believe how fast they can go...
