News of Ten’s welcome return to coverage of the WRC and CAMS Australian Rally Championship was announced on the network’s RPM motorsport show by host Matt White.
“Rally is coming back to Ten. The WRC, full highlights of that, and the Australian Rally Championship, we’ll be covering as well,” White said.
“Rally Australia will be live on Ten later in November and we’ll also be covering the Finke Desert Race. RPM will be there every step of the way.”
The next round of the WRC is this weekend’s Xion Rally Argentina. An announcement is expected shortly on the date and time of the first one-hour Network Ten highlights program.
Rally Australia will host its 27th WRC event in November. After an exciting start to the season featuring three different winners from four events, event organisers are predicting round 14 will be another exciting showdown on the Coffs Coast, where last year Sébastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville and Ott Tänak fought each other for the drivers’ title literally down to the final stage.
November’s Coffs Coast coverage also will include the final of the CAMS Australian Rally Championship. Ten also will cover round 3 of the ARC, Subaru Rally Tasmania, which will be staged on 21-23 June.
Kennards Hire Rally Australia is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW.
