Sky Sports will show coverage of each event from the MSA British Rally Championship until 2012 thanks to a new deal agreed with Greenlight Television this week, it has been announced.

The agreement extends Sky's partnership with the BRC to nine-years and will see highlights screened at 7pm on the Monday after each rally. The coverage is presented by Mike Brewer and Robbie Head with commentary from Richard Nichols and Dave Moore.

In addition Rallyzone returns to screens too. The half hour magazine show is screened the Wednesday before each rally and as well as previews and features from the MSA series, it includes coverage of the Fiesta SportTrophy, Citro├źn Racing Trophy, the Swift Sport Cup and the BRC Challenge.

"The relationship with Sky Sports and Greenlight Television has been excellent for the last six years and it is testament to both their commitment and the quality of the British Rally Championship that we can look forward to another three years of fantastic coverage," said BRC championship manager, Mark Taylor.

"The British Rally Championship always provides plenty of excitement and drama for our motorsport viewers," added Sky Sports' Sue Ashworth.

"I'm very pleased that it will remain an important part of our schedules now for the next three years."
