Now that Speed has gotten rid of their (admittedly poor) coverage of the WRC, how can rally fans in the US watch the WRC? I'm sure that there is a way to download European feeds through Bittorrent, but does anyone know where to find them? How are the rest of you going to get your WRC fix this year?

Re: How to watch WRC in US? (SamPBronkowitz)

I did a quick torrent search yesterday and came up with nothing. I'll be checking today too.
I just found out yesterday the SpeedTV didn't pick up WRC this year, and I think the freakin' blows. There's an online petition about their crappy programming: http://www.petitiononline.com/SpdTV/petition.html

I'm on my second year of WRC+, it's only talking and split times but in many ways it's better then TV because it's live and they talk to the drivers as they finish a stage. Then I'll buy the end of year dvd, next freakin year!

Re: How to watch WRC in US? (not_so_furious)

I did a quick search as well and no luck. Last years were apparently posted at http://www.tidbit.org but the site is down now. Anyone know where any torrent coverage is being posted?

Every rare moment WRC is on speed I'm glued to the set. Getting some extended coverage would be great 1 hour for a mutilstage 3 day rally just doesn't cut it

Speed Channel sucks for dropping WRC coverage. i like NASCAR too, but i don't need to see it 24/7.

i had the same trouble. you need another codec. follow the link the dude in thread sent me and it should help. i don't recall exactly which codec i needed, but now it works (i was getting audio only)
hope i don't need yet another for Catalunya (fingers crossed)...
