All rally coverage in the U.S. is bought from independant production companies--Speedvision rarely sends their own cameras.
I thought the coverage was different, but not necessarily worse than the ProRally coverage. It seemed to have a more documentary feel--like the Dakar coverage, compared to the more sensational style of the SCCA events. I really liked the feeling of and endurance race the pacing conveyed. People need to understand that just finishing an event like that is an achievement. Often I get the feeling from the SCCA coverage that the whole rally is about an hour long.
They really did their research and found GREAT camera locations. The voiceovers were a bit weak, though.
