How the WRC captures its stunning visuals

Whether it’s the mountains of Monte Carlo, the snow of Sweden or the Kenya Savannah, the World Rally Championship is able to beam some of motorsport’s most spectacular footage to television screens while operating in the harshest of environments. Motorsport.com went behind the scenes to unearth the secrets that make this logistical challenge possible

The World Rally Championship has become synonymous with creating stunning images as the world’s best rally drivers tackle the toughest roads in extreme yet picturesque environments. And ardent WRC fans now have more access than ever before thanks to the 2018 introduction of the WRC All Live pay television service, which broadcasts live footage from every stage of a WRC event to ensure that nothing is missed.

To achieve this requires overcoming a sizeable logistical headache. Unlike circuit racing, where broadcast crews set up their cameras, outside broadcast trucks and editing suites around a permanent venue, a rally is constantly on the move. To add to the challenge, the stages are often hosted in the most extreme of climates and terrain.
