I wish there were more sponsorships and events to support our talented Indians.

Wishing all the best to Naren. Hoping for a better performance now that he has got the car!

Naren will be driving in the 6 WRC events, in the P-WRC category. The new Subaru looks amazing but it is having reliability issues and we can only hope that Naren does well to bring the car home in competitive position. Acropolis is a very tricky rally and can force a driver into a mistake if he is not 110 % concentrated. Wishing Naren all the very best.

Tanveer, You are confusing me.
Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson drive for Subaru WRC team.

Naren is driving in PWRC! i.e. Production World Rally Championship

They don't show it live but on the monday after the rally is over, they show 1.5 hrs of telecast on star sports after 1030 pm. They generally cover WRC and in the middle they show a little about PWRC and others.

PWRC is broadcasted as "PWRC" on start sports.
One can catch it on weekends.Broadcast timings are random.
