    It is possible because passion overcomes morons who rely on technology and clichés like whoever makes those stupid WRC official videos. Its possible because hard-core fans know what winds them up and so that's what they film: the CARS being driven hard...While TV people think we want to see how cool THEY are..so they have to play with the camera and special effects and randomly and constantly go to super-super-slow motion inexplicably, or speed up the action "to make it more exciting" and in general show what great artistes with the camera they are..

    This! And how is it maximum to do 3 live stages?? 2017 almost - i just don't get it. We don't need helis and 20+ cameras on stage. I believe even a couple of cameras streaming live on half of the stages would be doable.

    There's a massive difference what people expect from the official broadcast and some fans streaming from their phones/tablets.

    And WRC broadcasts aren't even close to 20+ cameras, unless you count all the onboard cameras.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    I think people just don't care about the sources.

    Personally I am fine with betting and energy drink companies, no problem.

    Energy drinks as sponsors seems to be a good idea, but... wasn't it tried already?

    WRC having an older fanbase? I'm not so sure... For example in Catalunya I've see plenty of young people along the stages. It probably depends from country to country, but on most places I've been there are spectators from all ages.

    They have taken over from the alcohol companies and pretend to be promoting a healthy lifestyle when
    their products are just full of sugar calories and no goodness. And then they market this to younger people when there is a already a big problem with obesity.

    Rallying makes these companies look 'cool" when they are really harming health almost like the old vices did.

    If you're that fussed about energy drinks I'm not sure how you can justify manufacturer support of motorsport, when so many people are killed in car accidents...
