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
I don't think I explained myself very well; I don't mind some in-car footage, I quite enjoy it actually.
But if they show 60 seconds of Markko, say, running SS 5, near Split time B during coverage, later in the same show DON'T
show Markko running SS 5, near Split time B AGAIN
- show Petter on that SS!!
Show Gilles on that SS!
Hell, even Freddy- but don't show the same damned footage they already showed!!!
