TV production partner announced for WRC

HBS to produce WRC TV programmes in 2013
Host Broadcast Services has been appointed by the sportsman media group and Red Bull Media House, the new promoters of the World Rally Championship, to serve as their TV production partner for 2013, it has been confirmed.

Under the deal the Swiss-based company, which is fully owned by Infront Sports & Media, will produce both the daily news and a 26-minute highlight show of each rally, as well as a 52-minute show featuring all the highlights of the 2013 World Rally Championship season.

The company is to work in collaboration with its Finnish technical partner Filmworks, with HBS' veteran producer Nick Atkins leading a 'dedicated' team tasked with the production and delivery of coverage of the 13 rounds that make up the championship.

“The WRC provides authentic and competitive motorsports action featuring powerful cars and fantastic drivers in a unique environment,” HBS said in a statement on its official website.

“As such, it is a perfect sport for HBS' signature mix of technological innovation and high quality production — on-board cameras, aerial coverage and sophisticated microphones are already planned, with additional innovations in the pipeline.”

wrc is going to be on TV? Hmmmm, all we need now are some constructors like Ford, Peugeot, Mini/BMW, Mitsubishi, toyota or subaru as well as a few competitive top level drivers like maybe a Gronholm or Solberg and it would be nice to have a reigning world champion as well, certainly adding Loeb wouldnt do it any harm as it is we'll have some rallys to watch just no really top line drivers
