FIA - World Rally Championship Live Stream Online HD TV

FIA World Rally Championship Live Stream Online. 53 drivers from 20 different countries and at the wheel of cars built by eight Manufacturers took part in the series, resulting in an average participation of 4 cars per event and making the FIA WTCC the international championship with the largest and most varied grids.

After an exciting maiden season, the FIA World Touring Car Championship promoted by Eurosport faces its second year in 2006 with two main goals: consolidating its position alongside the only two other world car racing championships - Formula One and World Rally Championship - and keeps on growing in terms of participation, audiences, media coverage and popularity. The transition from European Championship to World Championship meant a big leap forward in all fields.A success upheld by the figures: attendance at the track increased by 5 per cent compared to the 2004 FIA ETCC, the number of TV viewers grew dramatically from 61 to 319 million, while 274 accredited media persons on the average attended the race meetings.Creating a successful game franchise based on the WTCC is another main goal for Eurosport to broaden the reach and target audience of the exciting championship.

2006 brings some interesting news that is widening the FIA WTCC’s horizons further. For now the focus is on the battle for the succession to the World Champion’s throne, occupied by Andy Priaulx who managed to grab the title on the final race of the season at Macau.In brief the FIA WTCC is becoming a real, global event, shaping up for the seasons to come that will see the championship expand into new markets and attract more car manufacturers. While a bunch of top-level privateers will fight for the euro 350,000 prize money at stake in the Independents’ Trophy.

The Championship expands to Brazil with the event in Curitiba, the involvement of Yokohama as tyre supplier has sparked a lot of interest from the Japanese industry, media and fans, more premier TV channels worldwide are airing the races live or recorded with the added value of the new HD technology. The Briton’s fellow BMW drivers and the six aces of the SEAT armada are the most accredited claimants, but the Alfa Romeo and Chevrolet men are serious dark horses.All the ingredients are there for another season made of twenty breathtaking races.
