    Subaru WRC on Discovery Channel?

    crash.net in the UK is reporting the following story:

    "Fans of the WRC will get a chance to go 'behind-the-scenes' later this month, when the Discovery Channel begins screening a documentary series focusing on 2006 and the trials and tribulations suffered by the Subaru World Rally team.

    "‘Engineering the World Rally' joins the Subaru WRT as they and their driver, Petter Solberg, fight for the championship. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access for an entire season, this six-part series provides a unique insight into the deeply secretive world of big budget motorsport, getting under the skin of the British-run Subaru World Rally Team and following their every move as they prepare the cars for each event, test and shakedown," read a statement from the producers.

    "What unfolds is a rollercoaster of action both behind-the-scenes and on the rally stage as they endure the worst year they've ever had. Driver issues, endless car trouble and pure bad luck sees them constantly fighting to keep pace with their rivals."
    I can't find anything about it on Discovery's (incredibly slow) website, so I don't know if there's a different schedule in Europe, but I'm keeping an eye on it...

    Im sure it will be available to download on the intraweb sometime soon but that sounds like a great show.

    Hopefully the nice guys who put the WRC on BitTorrent will do the same for this...

    I think you all are talking about the WRC documentary series. That wouldn't be the actual races themselves.

    Additionally, Racecentral.tv has said they plan to broadcast the WRC rally races in the USA, but I heard they only have a channel in Colorado. But that's just the word on the street.

    There are some clips of the Discovery Channel prog available here and here. What a nice job someone has: taking SWRT's new cars down to the MIRA test track for a blast to see if everything's working. Where do I sign up?

    I am starting to hate BitTorrent. It's always touted as being faster and more efficient than a straight download, but my experience is the exact opposite. You're entirely at the mercy of the seeds so, although I appreciate the link, there's nothing there right now...

    I used to get my WRC coverage on BitTorrent last year, until I discovered enormouslysideways and rally703. Now I can get them when they are posted, or later, and it takes a fraction of the time I used to wait for torrents to download.

    It was a pretty good first show. Kinda sucks we all now how the season goes but it was nice to see some of the inner workings of how they run the Subaru team.
