USRC SIGNS TWO-YEAR AGREEMENT FOR WORLDWIDE
TELEVISION AND INTERNET PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION
Laughlin, Nevada -- The United States Rally Championship (USRC) and Replica Productions entered into a two-year agreement to develop a Broadcast License Agreement for worldwide television and Internet production and distribution of the events of the United States Rally Championship. The agreement covers the 2007 and 2008 USRC seasons.
Replica Productions, headquartered in New York City, has a long track record of bringing the sport of Rally to broadcast television. It produced the television broadcasts of the SCCA ProRally Championship during the period 1995 through 2004. The shows were produced for ESPN, SpeedVision and Speed Channel. Throughout the 2006 season of the United States Rally Championship, Replica Productions assisted in producing television shows from the 2006 USRC events. The shows will be broadcast on HDNet TV channel in high definition in the near future.
In a related development, USRC will engage Creative Edge Events of Ridgecrest, California, as a consultant and an advisor. Creative Edge Events produced the very successful one-hour television show from the 2006 Rally New York USA and from other events of the 2006 United States Rally Championship.
