Setanta Sports has confirmed that BT Sport has signed a deal to show exclusive live coverage of up to 26 stages of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), starting with the opening event of the 2014 season, the famous Rallye Monte Carlo, tomorrow (Wednesday, January 15). The WRC pits cars and drivers against each other in a series of two, three or four-day events through some of the toughest conditions in the world.
Road conditions vary from the snow and ice of Scandinavia to the stifling heat of Australia, over surfaces with packed ice, smooth asphalt and boulder-strewn rocky tracks. Coverage will include a preview and a review show for each rally plus daily highlights. Launched in its current format in 1973, drivers and manufacturers will battle it out for the 42nd annual championship in rallies across 13 countries and three continents.
Setanta Sports viewers can follow the fortunes of Irish co-driver Paul Nagle as he supports Kris Meeke.
