    Just watched the NW Stages highlights and I am quite impressed with the overall package. The presentation was pretty slick and modern looking, but it still had a quite familiar traditional feel. The comms with David Addison helped with that too.

    The rally conditions and issues didnt make it easy to cover but the action shown wasnt bad. Maybe the future events will be done better with more benign weather.

    The showing of cars & drivers from the difference Classes was a bit confusing for the non-rally fans. More stage end interviews wouldve been good too and showing each stage times.

    A good effort all in all.

    Thought the coverage was ok, but kept jumping from car to car too quickly and all in different classes rather than grouped together in there respective classes.
    Think the rally nuts will be easier to cover and longer shots of the cars.

    OK start but room for improvement.

    No, and I applaud his/ their honesty. The 'better than nothing' has been the usual comment for rally coverage from British rally fans for too long......

    I thought it was okay; but a little disjointed, and the camera positions could have been far better. I don't know how much communication there is between the event organisers, and TV crew regarding camera positions - but in most sports it's done to showcase the sport in its best light. In an ideal world, camera positions would be decided when the route is being planned........

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    I think my positivity possibly came from comparing it to the abysmal YT-only efforts in previous years. Plus as an Ingram fan he got a lot of coverage which I enjoyed.

    I dont know how the camera positions were chosen but the live streams were also pretty poor. Maybe the weather made a difference and they needed to get some shelter. I guess we'll see on the next shows.

    Absolutely pathetic coverage. Ridiculously bad quality, out of focus shots of car approaching stop line only for Matt to walk in front of the camera so cameraman had to walk around the car door. That would be terrible on live coverage, never mind the production studios they have. Interviewer must have forgotten to switch on the mic so couldn’t hear what was being said - that should be picked up straight away when it’s happening so they can redo it properly.

    With the budget they had, there is no excuse for not coping with stage cancellations or weather - it’s rallying!!

    They had a recce of the route beforehand and had a lot of help, there’s absolutely no excuse for it.

    And put it this way, for what they’re being paid for the year it would be a nicely sized pension pot for me.
    If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off!

    I’ve been watching it just now and I must say I think a lot of the criticisms seem a bit harsh. I thought it wasn’t too bad, but then maybe my expectations were lowered considerably reading these comments!

    I’ll concede cinematically I don’t know what I’m talking about at all but it didn’t seem too bad for the most part. There were some glaring exceptions though!

    The pre-amble was good; informative without being patronising. The mix of classes wasn’t confusing to me but kept me interested - I tended to skip forward through the lower classes until the main field appeared again on the old youtube footage. And as for the ‘fancam’ footage, ‘t’was ever thus; who else remembers Steve Rider’s commentary over the the fan submitted footage of Mark Lovell’s crash on the Twiglees stage of the ‘86 Scottish?

    Hollie McRae was surprisingly good as a service park reporter, I think I assumed there would be an overuse of sporting TV buzzwords and cliches, but there was none of that - I don’t think I even heard the word ‘iconic’ once. And service park interviews are to me what classic rally roundup shows are supposed to have, none of this ram a microphone in every driver’s face at he end of every single stage and force them to come up with something interesting and original each time…

    Better stage-side shots for the Severn Valley Rally will hopefully make this properly polished and miles better than it was last time the BRC was on TV - was it back in ‘18 on Channel 4 at 7:30am on a Saturday with some berk who didn’t have the first clue about rallying?

    No Sportity password as yet however the route will be on the Sporttraxx app when it goes live usually a few days before the event as they are doing the tracking.
