    I read there might be something in the works along these lines but I've been waiting to hear the result. There's not much to it, looks like a deal to show highlights/summaries post-rally. Better than nothing...depending on the commentary.

    SPEED Signs Deal With 2012 World Rally Championship Series (auto-racing.speedtv.com)

    It was on Velocity brighthouse 1235 before

    I used to watch the WRC on Velocity channel but they don't show it at all anymore. I guess they need the time to show the Barrett Jackson car auctions over and over a gain at least a million times.

    They had great WRC coverage but now it is all gone.

    The hour recap on speed will be better then nothing.

    :crazy:

    Thanks for the heads up Steve

    I recorded it and just watched it. I'm sure happy that Speed picked it up and I'm sure grateful to you for letting us all know about it being shown on Speed Channel.

    Thanks,:beer:donut1::Thumbsup:

    Mecum auto auctions

    They all look the freakin same Barrett Jackson or Mecum auto auctions. Both channels keep showing the same auction shows over and over. Velocity repeats all of their shows a lot anyway. It is good they do that so you don't miss a wheeler dealer or chasing class Etc. They still are the best for unique car shows. What i'm saying is: Velocity always had great coverage of all of the WRC series but now they have no coverage at all.

    I'm happy that Speed is going to at least recap the series.

    I still thank Steve for the heads up.

    The Speed coverage wasn't bad. It was a pretty good summary with some very good clips from the action. I'd definitely give it a better-than-nothing thumbs up. :Thumbsup: If nothing else, it's at least coverage in the U.S. on a more accessible channel. Here's hoping they decide it's worth continuing.
