New online service offers fans improved WRC experience
Fans can access world rallying’s new WRC+ digital service via both website and app from this week’s ADAC Rallye Deutschland (21 - 24 August).
The internet-based service was successfully launched by WRC Promoter last month to give FIA World Rally Championship fans the opportunity to decide when, where and how they want to access the drama from motorsport’s toughest competition for production-based cars.
It was initially available from www.wrcplus.com, but from the ninth round of the 13-event championship in Germany, it can also be accessed from the popular WRC app. It is available from the iTunes store (iOS) and from the Google Play Store (Android).
“We’ve had an extremely positive feedback to WRC+ following our launch at Neste Oil Rally Finland last month,” said WRC Promoter managing director Oliver Ciesla.
“It was always our intention to make WRC+ available through the official WRC app as well as the website, and I’m delighted we can now do so earlier than expected at ADAC Rallye Deutschland.
“It’s another positive step forward in using the latest technology to give our fans the freedom to follow this exciting sport by the means they choose,” added Ciesla.
WRC+ contains four fan options – live maps, onboard action, full highlights and live stages. It is available across computer, smart phone or tablet, meaning fans can stay in touch with the latest news as it happens from wherever they are.
Subscribers can access WRC+ for just 4.99 Euros per month, and each subscription offers two simultaneous log-ins, meaning fans can follow the action via two different devices at the same time.
Due to legal requirements WRC+ is currently not available in the UK, France, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
