The 2014 World Rally Championship (WRC) gets underway this week, with BT Sport showing live coverage from the first round in Monte Carlo.

Subscribers to the pay-TV service will be able to enjoy all the action from this year's WRC after BT Sport signed an exclusive broadcast deal.

Viewers will be able to see drivers compete against each other in a series of two, three and four-day events, taking in some of the toughest and most varied conditions in the world.

BT Sport's WRC coverage will run across its three UK channels - BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, and ESPN - with subscribers able to enjoy live racing, daily highlights and a preview and review show for each rally.

Racing is currently underway in Monte Carlo and continues until Saturday January 18th, with 2013 world champion Sébastien Ogier beginning his title defence in the Volkswagen Polo.

The WRC drivers will compete over 13 rounds across Europe, North and South America and Australia between now and mid-November, with Sweden coming up on the snow in early February.

From there, the action heads to Mexico in the first week of March, before returning to Europe for the Rally de Portugal in April.

Two British drivers are set to compete in this year's WRC, with Ford's Elfyn Evans joining Citroën's Kris Meeke in the 2014 line-up.
