The 2021 Roger Albert Clark Rally (25-29 November) will have extensive media coverage, with considerable emphasis placed on live broadcasts to capture the action, drama and unique atmosphere of this epic rally.

For anyone following the rally, whether it is from the forests and service areas or from the armchair at home, as it covers England, Scotland and Wales there are lots of ways to keep up with the rally over five days of flat-out competition.

As in 2019, Matt Cotton will be reporting live via the event’s Facebook page from a range of locations, including stage starts, stage finishes, controls and service areas. In addition to Matt’s live reporting, the Facebook page will be updated throughout the event with news, stories, images and anything else that is relevant. The live feed will be at: http://www.facebook.com/RogerAlbertClark/<http://www.facebook.com/RogerAlbertClark/>

In addition, there will be a live studio-style TV review programme at the end of each day, the ‘R.A.C. Rally Report’, taking in action footage from that day’s stages filmed and edited by the team at Special Stage. It is expected that the Facebook broadcast will start at around 8pm each evening.

Rally manager Colin Heppenstall said: “The live Facebook coverage takes the event across the world and allows everyone to keep up to date. We want to take that to an even wider audience this time around. The level of interest in the build up to the rally has been unprecedented.”

In 2019 the live coverage over the five days spanned 23 broadcast sessions and a total of 14 hours 38 minutes. The largest number of views was of the Sunday morning transmission which had a reach of 41,460 and 25,000 views during the 72-minute transmission. Meanwhile, the Facebook live TV programme reached 100,370 people and was viewed by 52,200 people.

During the week of the 2019 event, the rally’s Facebook page had 442,800 engagements with 75,300 page views. The page now has more than 19,250 followers.

The comprehensive event results system run by Tynemouth Computers is one of the best rally results systems in Europe and will carry as near-live information as is possible considering the terrain covered by the rally. The results system will show the current leader board, times for a stage or stages, reasons for retirement and much more: https://tynecomp.co.uk/AboutLiveResults.html
