Default Rally racing on TV?

I've been very interested in reading about rallying lately. Lots of pictures and videos. I even watched the rally across newfoundland on OnDemand and thought it was SWEET. But I can never find rally on TV. I've tried several websites none of which seem to help. I have the speed channel but all I ever see are really dumb shows and rarely racing. Should I resort to just watching it on the computer?

Speed took it out of their lineup. And probably added MORE nascar in its place

Theres some channel that plays the rally america stuff, im not sure what it is, but if you live in the US you need to Download rally TV programs. Torrents are the best way.

I know a guy with a girlfriend from Poland and the last meet I saw him at he had video she brought back of WRC coverage. It was 2 hours per day.

i.e. 3 day rally = 6 hours of tv coverage

Try this website.
http://enormouslysideways.net

It's just an overall wrap up but there is some great footage. You need DVIX codec to watch it.

Thats what I thought, but I wasn't sure if them changing their name to Versus effected their coverage I hope not.

They get a half hour per day, not 6 hours.

There will not be any more coverage of the Rally America 2006 season on television, beyond what has been shown for X Games and the pre-X Games show on ESPN.

I expect that the 2007 Rally America season and X Games will be covered on ESPN, ESPN2, or the Ocho.

I think it would be kinda neat if they offered them on iTunes, I usually end up getting other TV shows there anyway, so why not some racing too?

There was an article in a recent Autoweek that said WRC is likely to be back on TV in USA next year. Nothing finalized but read as if it wouldn't be Speed. Can't imagine Autoweek would publish that if it wasn't more than chatter.

Life would be happy if that were too materialize. Now we can only hope NASCAR doesn't whip up another mundane roundy-round event like the 'NASCAR SUV Challenge' and snatch the WRC time slot on speed....

As long as NASCAR remains a majority owner of Speed, there's little danger of ever seeing WRC on that channel. Them roundy-round boys don't cotton to competition what makes em look bad......especially none o them frikken Frenchies and Euro foo-foo stuff.
