I mean, really- they must have absolutely hours of footage from *each* team car on *each* stage- there's really no excuse for doubling up any of that shown...
When they are trying to put out a show on the same day as the event there is no way to review all that footage and edit in time for the show. It takes a long time to review the hours of tapes from each camera man, each in car, the interviews, the scenics, and the amatuer submissions, etc. Same day or even end of the rally coverage is not enough time to be thorough.
That is why there was mosty in car footage when they were doing the same day shows, because of the lack of time to review and the in car shots would reveal the interesting moments that the stage cameras might miss, so they would go through that footage first
That is why I have always said the best shows were from 2001 and earlier as they took about two weeks to produce the show which allowed them to make a really slick production
