UPDATE: National Capital Rally on TV this weekend
- 27th March 2014, 11:10pm
A scheduling error last Sunday has meant that the spectacular action from the opening Round of the East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship, the National Capital Rally from Canberra, will be on Network Ten at 11am (EST, check local guides) this Sunday 30th March.
Subject to the NBL finals the ECB ARC looks to move from the regular time of midday to a prime viewing time of 2pm Sunday’s from next weekend. This will help to increase the coverage of the ECB ARC, its sponsors, teams and drivers.
This year’s television coverage again provides fans with two full hours of coverage for each of the six events, with the first hour airing this Sunday providing all the action from the ECB ARC Outright two-wheel drive ARMOR ALL Power Stage featuring special guest star Ari Vatanen in a Group B Audi Quattro.
Then the action switches to the intense battle for the Classic Rally Challenge, with Neal Bates’ Toyota Celica, Jeff David’s Porsche 911 and a host of rear-wheel drives fighting it out.
As well as the fire-breathing Mitsubishi’s and Subaru’s vying for the East Coast Bullbars 4WD National Rally Series, with 2013 combatants Mike Bailey and Richie Dalton fending off the challenges of the NSW and ACT contingent.
The second hour of coverage, airing on Network Ten the following week (Sunday 6th April – again please check your local guides) will provide start to finish coverage of the outright ECB ARC. Watch as reigning Champ Eli Evans fights for points with arch rivals Brendan Reeves, Scott Pedder and the new Citroen Australian team as well as new breed of drivers led by Waylon Sims and Steve Mackenzie.
Check local guides for coverage times, and catch re-runs of all the action on ONE HD and the Speed Channel on Foxtel.
