    Does your kitchen move at 180 km/h in the mountains and forests?

    The technology is there, they just don't want to.
    On most stages in the WRC you can't even get on FB, i know on Röjden and Svullrya in some places you can barely send a text.
    Spain also had really bad connection. So how would you sort that out?

    I do think there's a reason they use 150.000€ kits in each car for camera's and satellite signal through the repeater plane and not a smartphone

    They could move every rally to denkimi's kitchen.

    I am sure what denkimi is suggesting is doable on a technical level, the question is if the promoter considers it worth doing.

    Of course you can set up an own 4G network to every rally site, or stream 5 different angles from denkimi's kitchen, even though if you want to do HD thousand euros may not be enough, but neither of them surely won't be worth doing.

    The tour de france cycles 200+ kilometres a day through forests, mountains, villages and sometimes atrocious weather. Yet they manage to bring each and every stage, start to finish, in the very best quality on your tv-screens. In fact you can turn on Eurosport and you'll see minor cycling races from every corner of the globe live. There is no excuse why the wrc cannot do that either.

    I mean that comment goes for pretty much the entirety of Wales, let alone the rally stage sections...

    Now you're just being ridiculous.

    How many bikes have cameras on them? How fast do the bikes travel? Do they travel on uneven terrain?

    I've watched a lot of cycling, and there are RF drop outs from the motorbike cameras all the time.

    And guess what, it's the same company that supplies a lot of the equipment and technology for the Tour de France and the WRC: AMP Visual TV.

    Are you suggesting they do a bad job in WRC because they want to, or perhaps one is just inherently more difficult than the other?

    If you think it's so easy, why doesn't ASO, the company that promotes the tour de France also do it for the Dakar?

    This is just from the top of my head, but I would guess Tour de France has a lot of more viewers and therefore a lot more budget for televising.

    That is one way but wouldn't work without many big transmitter towers i guess, they did it on a "minutt by minutt" broadcast in Norway this summer broadcasting all day for four 5 day trips from this backpack and guys on the mountains around with transmitters, dropped out a lot in the forests.
