– New for 2017: daily highlights and live coverage on Red Bull TVred-bull-tv-pre-monte17a

The build-up and fever pitch expectation is almost over as the Rallye Monte Carlo action commences this evening (Thursday) heralding the start of one of the most keenly-anticipated FIA World Rally Championships in memory.

Dynamic new-look World Rally Cars will echo through the mountains of the French Alps as four of the world’s biggest automotive manufacturers begin the fight for supremacy in motorsport’s toughest championship for production-based cars.

Bringing fans even closer to the action, for the first time Red Bull TV will be broadcasting special daily highlights programmes as well as live WRC coverage on Saturday afternoon. Mike Chen will be hosting the free-to-air coverage and is joined in the commentary team by former F1 and sportscar star Mark Webber for the Monte Carlo curtain-raiser.

The first dedicated WRC programme on Red Bull TV is at 9pm* on Friday 20 January with further daily highlights broadcast at 9pm* on both Saturday and Sunday evenings. Saturday’s live coverage starts at 10.50am*. All shows will remain available to watch on-demand on Red Bull TV once the rally has finished. Red Bull TV is available to watch entirely free of charge online at and via mobile, laptop or smart television, or on the dedicated Red Bull TV app, available both for iPhone and Android.

Footage from yesterday’s Shakedown can be downloaded here: and can be shared via all media outlets.
