For more information about each of these rallies, just click on the event name and you will be directed to the rally’s website. Each of the websites for each of these rallies is in a little different states with respect to being up-to-date, but as the time for the rally draws near, then the information on the website will be brought up-to-date.
Unfortunately, once again, the outlook is not good in the USA for rally fans to watch the WRC events on television. It is surprising that as popular as rallying is at the WRC level, combined with the challenges of watching a rally in person that television coverage is not available. At least during this past year I have been able to watch (on a several week delay basis) many of the European Rally Championship events on the Velocity network. Hopefully the European Rally Championship events will continue to be shown on Velocity in 2014.
