The FIA World Rally Championship will continue to be on BT Sport until 2024.

Commercial rights holder WRC Promoter agreed a deal with the broadcaster that sees every stage from every round live, continuing the relationship between the pair that began in 2014.

The deal begins next season, at the same time as the competition launches a new era of hybrid vehicles. In addition to every stage, fans will be able to see expert analysis from rallies, key interviews with the top stars and behind-the-scenes features. 

The extended agreement also promises a pre-event magazine show, daily highlights capturing all the twists and turns on the leaderboard and a post-rally review programme. 

Philipp Maenner, media rights director at WRC Promoter, said: “British rally fans have celebrated some stellar moments over the years, cheering on as they watched TV coverage of Colin McRae and Richard Burns bringing WRC championship glory to their shores.

“Now a new generation of British drivers is focused on emulating those amazing achievements. I’m delighted that, as the WRC travels the globe to compete in picture-postcard locations and gruelling conditions, BT Sport will continue to screen the thrills and spills from every round.

“The introduction of sustainable hybrid technology next year for the WRC’s headline category marks one of the biggest milestones in the sport’s history and this extension means British fans will be right there from the beginning.”

Rachel Knight, sports rights director at BT Sport, added: “Today’s news not only extends our successful long-term relationship with WRC Promoter, it builds on our existing motorsports coverage of Moto GP, Extreme E and Moto E. BT Sport is passionate about sustainability and we aim to become one of the greenest broadcasters globally, so we welcome the chance to showcase WRC’s landmark hybrid evolution from 2022.”
