WRC Returns to HD Theater--Longer, Faster...

Well we won't have to wait until the end of the year this time to see the current season of WRC action in HD. HD Theater has announced that the '10 WRC will begin appearing on American TVs beginning on 2/25, only a week and 1/2 after the actual event (a vast improvement over the 6 month+ wait in '09).

Not only that but coverage has been expanded as well. In '09 we got one hour to cover the entire event. In '10 the coverage has grown to a 1/2 hour preview, a 1/2 hour for Day 1, a 1/2 hour for Day 2 and a 1/2 hour for Day 3 and if you miss all that then they offer a 1 Hour recap of the entire event (at least for Rally Sweden) and this expanded coverage repeats again a few weeks later for Rally Mexico sans the 1 hour full recap.

Remaining schedule for '10 has yet to be released but you can see the current schedule here: HD Theater WRC Schedule

Now if we could only get someone to start covering the IRC events as well...
