We have consistently attempted to own the action and adventure domain and it is our attempt to be present in every genre synonymous with action. The World Rally Championship generates a frenzy and thrill amongst enthusiasts like no other, which is what AXN provides through all its programming pillars. Nothing pumps your adrenaline like 16 rounds of some nerve-wrecking motor sporting action over twisty tracks and the World Rally Championship promises to be just that.”
