“The Televisual Revolution”

    Interesting point of view Anthony. I heard about Redbull Tv from Andreas Mikkelsen’s tweet and it has me excited. I felt like WRC+ was good but not good enough, fortunately my subscription expires in March so I’ll have ample time to decide on whether to renew it or not.
    Speaking of yearbooks, I am jealous! They were too expensive when I was younger and now they can’t be found. Do they still make them???

      Hi Alvin,

      My wife found a used copy of the 2001 yearbook on Ebay for pretty cheap and gave it to me for Christmas last year. Actually, the cost of shipping it from the UK was more than the book! So, you can find them used if you look around…

        Thanks for the pointer @disqus_wXlbK3f6mv:disqus! I’ll be sure to hunt them down now that there is hope! :)

    Let’s be honest – its all pretty pathetic really. 15 Years of empty promises, etc and in that time the sport has slowly been sliding into relative obscurity.
    The promise of better TV, media coverage was the whole point of changing ‘old school’ WRC into the modern generic 9-5 WRC era. But it never materialised.

    And this RedBull announcement – is about 3-4 years too late; this is what should have happened when they got the rights. The RedBullTV platform was already there – why didn’t they use it from the beginning?
    Excuse my cynicism – but just maybe they’ve realised that selling rights to PayTV isn’t really working out for them – and putting the WRC on their own platform may get more viewers, benefitting the sport in the long term.
