Broadcast would be great but we must take baby steps to prove that there is an audience for WRC in the US again. I'd love to get this on TV but right now nobody is willing to pay for it. Speed never really got an audience for it compared to their other programming.

Our goal is to build the core following for WRC here in the states in the same manner that we have built up the other automotive brands that we represent and prove to all the mucky mucks at the networks that Rally should be televised and that this audience is not to be ignored. Anyways, that's the sales pitch.

Right now our plans are to release the 2006 year in review DVD. For the 2007 season we will put 3 rallys on a disc since we're a little behind in the season. Plus this way you will get more bang for your buck with this format.

All of the footage that you will see is the actual broadcast WRC coverage that is aired in (almost) 200 countries around the world. We're not going to edit/overdub or dumb it down. I'll get you more details as they are available.

So what are we going to get exactly? How many hours per race of coverage, how many DVD's total, and how much $mula$ for all this? Enquiring minds want to know. If Speed had put the rally's on some other time besides midnight on a sunday, maybe more people would have watched. I find it hard to believe that they could not find a 2 hour block sometime during a weeknight, say between 7 and 11 to put on some coverage. Hell I was happy with an hour.

Yeah this is all pretty sweet stuff but id rather know dates of when the events are being held so i could maybe try and follow a couple races i think that would make it a much more intense experience for sure....

We're looking at the 1 hr broadcast program per rally; 3 rally per DVD; bonus footage TBD. From what I've seen the 1 hr. program is perfect; it's just the right length; not too long and will hold viewers attention the entire time.

MSRP is going to be $20. We're setting up a deal with TMT/Nasioc so you can buy directly from here to support the community.

BTW we may plan a trip out to the Japan and/or the Wales rally later this year. I'll keep everyone posted on this in case you want to come and hang out with us.

This is great. there is alot of open space to race and challenge. If forced into a place that cannot gather a crowd, video ought to make up for it.

Like i said; baby steps. There's about a bunch of countries waiting in the wings to host WRC. If we can't even prove that there's a market for this via the DVD then there's no way that they will ever come here.

The one hour broadcast isn't perfect (depending on how YOU define what "perfect" means). It cuts out a LOT of detail, especially the pre-rally broadcast which reveals specials on new cars, behind the scenes of the rally world, in-depth interviews with drivers, etc. Definitely, the better broadcasts are the four part ones, per rally. That way you get a wrap up of the last rally, news, interviews, and then complete per-day coverage of each rally.

Now I don't think I'd pay $20 per rally, even if it was a 4 parter. But I'd pay $20 for two 4 part rally programs. That would be 8 broadcasts for $20, rather than your planned 3 broadcasts for $20 with maybe a bonus.

So your current model is $20 per three rallies. You could be making $20 per two rallies. Right there, you are guaranteed more income, you are offering a better and more complete package to your consumers, and you will generate more revenue for your distribution of the same number of rallies.

Also, if you are offering Rallying to the US for the first time, don't you want to reveal as much as you can? The FujiFast videos and other stuff I've seen at Best Buy pretty much sucks in terms of content. I'd hate to see the Rally footage treated with the same kind of "quick buck" attitude.

Jonnyfilmboy,

thanks for the input. we're going to invite some of the moderators to a screening once we put together a rough cut and we'll tweak the content according. In the end, viewers' input will dictate what the format will be on the DVDs.

I just don't know if the market will support so many dvds per season. This is why Best Motoring has cut down the number of releases for the US.

In regards to getting a WRC event here in the US, there's a group here in the US that's been trying to bring an event stateside for years but the shear magnitude and scope of the process is unimaginable.

We've had discussions in brief about this and there is interest but I think it is still a few years away from even being considered possible. We just got to show that there is a demand for the content here in the US before anything else. The DVD is just the first step in this process.
