Rally fans will get to see new 2014 WRX STI Rally car on NBC
Subaru fans who can’t attend the Rally America events will get to see the new 2014 WRX STI Rally car this year on NBC. If you are a Rally Racing fan this is good news from NBC Sports. They have inked an agreement to bring all eight 2014 Rally America National Championship events to NBC this year. Unfortunately they won’t be aired live, but each event will be produced into an hour-long show featuring the best of the event coverage, along with personal stories of national and regional competitors as they battle to overcome obstacles in their race to the podium. NBC says it will be “rally racing action as you've never seen it before.”
For those who aren’t familiar with Rally racing, it features modified production cars racing against the clock on closed-off sections of real roads that are usually unpaved, tree-lined, and unforgiving. These rally events last several days and cover hundreds of miles through rain, snow, and they even race at night.
