I use to download the WRC rallies from www.enormouslysideways.net but I kid you not, I think the dude killed himself. He hasn't posted since March of '07, the rallies stopped coming, and he posted something about attempting suicide and trying to get back on his feet. Anywho, do any of you guys know a website that I can get my fix? Thank god I at least have F1 but I need my WRC fix too.


UPDATE: I FOUND A LINK TO WATCH THE RALLIES!!!!!!

Rally-Live never aired the television footage and actually is no longer covering WRC:

ISC and North One move the goalposts for the WRC...
23/01/08 21:36

The newly-associated ISC and North One corporations have decided against renewing our agreements regarding the coverage of the 2008 World Rally Championship on Rally-Live.com.

Over the years we have worked hard to offer our passionate fans a complete WRC-dedicated website. The agreements entered into and the rights we had purchased allowed us to provide a large variety of information as events occurred, including live results, audio interviews, videos, high-definition images and many news articles.

Only two days from the start of a new season, we have learned that Rally-Live.com will no longer have the necessary means nor the right conditions in which to report on the WRC rounds, at least not at the same level of quality as has been the case over the last several years.

Therefore, since the commercial rights holders governing the World Rally Championship – North One Television and International Sportsworld Communicators – no longer offer us the necessary means to work in optimal conditions at this time, you will understand that it is difficult to carry on with a long-term view and continued coverage of WRC news.

We are sincerely sorry and disappointed for the 2,486,896 single readers who have visited our site in 2007 (source Google Analytics) which represent almost 10,000,000 visits over the year, without forgetting our partners and sponsors who have trusted us with our WRC reports for many seasons.

We wish to reassure you that we will now be reporting on other series currently in full development.

The responsibility of this decision does not rest upon us and we understand that you may also be disappointed. If such is the case, do not hesitate in letting your opinion be known by contacting the deciding entities, International Sportsworld Communicators and North One Television



Not that I condone this in any way but there seems to be no legitimate way of getting videos so....
Try www.rallytorrents.com

I have another source, and put it on DVD, but not allowed to share :( . Maybe we should start WRC night or something and/or a discussion thread

I would love to do a WRC night. It really sucks Speed stopped airing the WRC. Some of the best racing and race car drivers in the world are in the WRC. I will try to find the links I used to get my fix and post them. If nobody is going to air it here in the US I don't feel bad at all taking the content. I think I'm going to buy last season on DVD. I also think I'll start a WRC thread so we can discuss like you mentioned. Then you can post more of your awesome pics. :clap:

I have no clue, but who is the actress in your avatar?
:D I was wondering when someone would ask that. Her name is Laraine Day. I never knew of her until watching the SAG awards and during the Memoriam they showed her. I yelled to my wife, "Oh my god, who was that, rewind it!!!". Thank God for Tivo. The clip was from the movie Tycoon with "The Duke" John Wayne and she looked beautiful. Very stunning. I have not been able to get her out of my mind. My wife is getting pissed at me but I keep telling her she's dead and she has nothing to worry about. I was born in the wrong era. I purchased the movie Tycoon and it was soooooo worth it. Laraine Day looks amazing in that movie. Again, too bad she's dead. Below is the Memoriam, she comes on right after Robert Goulet. I've been buying old movie stills of her on ebay and putting them in my office. I think she could and should have been a big star but the studio had her under contract and held her down to B+ movie star status as she put it. I think she is hotter than most of the old Hollywood actresses.
