Mission

World Rally Championship

HBS was appointed by the sportsman media group and Red Bull Media House to serve as TV production partner of the 2013 FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) World Rally Championship in December 2012. The company immediately created a dedicated team of logistical, technical and production experts to work full-time on the event for the duration of its ten-month season, under the leadership of HBS Producer and WRC veteran Nick Atkins.

The World Rally Championship is the top-ranked rally series organised by the FIA. Its 2013 season consists of 13 events of up to 25 special stages, driven across the globe on surfaces including gravel, tarmac, snow and ice.

HBS produced a daily 26-minute recap for each rally day, a 52-minute highlights package at the end of each rally and an additional 52-minute highlights show for the entire season.

HBS’ work on the 2013 WRC was carried out in close cooperation with its technical partner Filmworks. Please click here for more information on the FIA WRC.
