OMGHi2U Rally Monte Carlo has no actual Monte Carlos! (official thread, talk about it here)


With only 3 major drivers (Loeb, Solberg, Gronholm) and only 2 manufacturers (Subaru, Ford) and no TV coverage, it's gonna be a tough season for rally fans

But, I'm still gonna follow it!

GO PETTER!

I haven't been a rally fan very long(only for 3 years now). I am starting to lose interest in WRC already. Fewer top drivers and fewer manufacturers isn't going to keep my attention. I am just a casual fan, but they risk losing me if they don't fix this mess soon. I am going to follow the US rally series closely, I really like how its growing. WRC is falling fast.

Go Petter, but more competition is needed.

So it's confirmed that Speed is not covering WRC this season?
Do you know anything about Eurosport across sea's? I used to download the Eurosport coverage because I thought it was better than Speed.

There's word that European Coverage has been canned too.

I just checked Eurosport's website, and they have nothing listed for WRC

What a depressing season this is going to be.

I signed up for WRC+. May be the only way to get anything this year

Its only about $3.50 (1.99GBP) for the first month, but then its 40GBP (~$70) per year. Seems steep. I'll have to see how good the service is during this event.

Yeah, so anyway, let's talk about the actual rally

With the new rule barring active diffs, I think Loeb is gonna be slower. Maybe we'll have a real fight this time.

if you want to make fun of the TV show on OLN, that's a whole different story for a whole different thread!

I guess I'll watch the Monte on wrc.com too, time to upgrade to plus!
