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.
The top drivers and their teams are professionals who are incredibly skilled and the cars are put to the extreme test. This extreme form of racing is what makes Rally Racing the world's premiere and most exciting motor sport, and one that is quickly growing in North America. If you haven’t seen it before, you will be hooked after the first episode.
