    Thought to let you all know, that this was the first Away WRC event produced in Finland... there were no local NEP trucks or studios. It was all broadcast live from Mexico to Finland to the world and seems to have been a success.

    Just that they cut the picture while the most interesting stuff happened (Lappi). And missed some other important driver mistakes or "happenings".

    The director can't predict the future. They can show a number of cars but can only guess who will crash out. Lappi's situation was shown as a replay.

    They cut away from Lappi to show the following two cars just cruising the stage.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Sometimes they cut just before an interesting passage from incar, only showing 5 secs of car revving on the startline.

    I really don't get why they have to show every car taking off from the start line. It's only interesting if the car has an issue - even then, just show a replay if something noteworthy happens.

    Same with in-car shots of the driver / crew's faces. That isn't where the action is, it's just one person turning a steering wheel, and another reading a book. Again - show a replay if something actually interesting or amusing happens, no problem. But live? When has anything worth looking at happened on the face cam?

    I agree with you. But I also try to understand why they do this stuff.

    Start line shots are only shown on TV stages. They are likely for sponsors, so the decals an be seen clearly on a stopped car. It also creates a "story" for a person who doesn't watch rallying so much, showing the order in which things happen ie. a car starts, drives on stage, another car starts, first car finishes etc.

    Face cam is just a gimmick to me. It's a nice touch if used sparsely, but it's not informative at all. But maybe it makes the footage less monotonous.

    I think when the director cuts to another camera, it doesn't happen instantly so we sometimes see something interesting happening but can't cancel the cutting anymore.

    Cuts happen instantly. You push a button and done.
