Coverage of WRC

Does Speed Channel do any coverage of WRC anymore?
I used to watch a fair amount of it years ago. Now outside of motorcycle racing ( which I like) it mostly seems to be NASCAR.

Speed has never covered wrc directly, just replayed the official broadcasts. Recently, they have been showing the 1hr full rally wrap up at 2ish in the morning the sunday after a rally. I've been recording them via DVR.

Speed, or Velocity? Last season Velocity had the recap shows on about 2-3 weeks after the actual event, but I haven't seen anything this year.

Crap. Don't get speed for some stupid reason. At least I can still find content online. And, at least FOX still shows some F1 races!
