What planet are they on? While it will surely be better than last year, it's another Ford v Citroen battle. Loeb v Hirvonen. With support from Sordo, Latvala and P. Solberg. Throw in Raikkonen and Block, and yes, there is some interest.I don't think they realise how far off the radar it has gone.
However, has anybody seen anything in the papers, radio, TV about this launch? Just having good coverage in Finland is not good enough - it's a World Championship!!
Until we have 4,5,6 Manufacturers with 3/4 cars and lots of Privateers, the media will not be interested. F1 = Motorsport as far as the media are concerned.

In the UK it is on DAVE and S4C not Motors tv if you took the time to read the report you would have seen that

Motors will probably show the normal once an event highlights package on a saturday or sunday night like before

Why they picked Dave is beyond me :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

It is a 3 year deal with motors if you click on the wrc in the banner at the top of the screen scroll down a bit you will see the article.

MPH, have to agree with Read It, it will be on Dave and S4C in the UK and here in Ireland, it is on Motors TV in France, and they may just through a bit on their English service. I presume mainstream Channel 4 in the rest of the UK will show something. If IRC can survive with it's mainstream coverage on Eurosport, why not WRC on another satalite channel. The fact it is on terestrial as well has to be a big help.
