Record-breaking TV deal for Monte

Rallye Monte Carlo, opening round of the 2010 IRC season, to feature extensive live coverage on Eurosport
Eurosport Events, the promoter of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, and the Automobile Club de Monaco have revealed the broadcast plan for the 2010 Rallye Monte-Carlo, which will be the most televised rally in the sport's history.

The ground-breaking coverage will bring live action throughout the event, totalling 14 hours of live coverage from the stages over all three days.

The unprecedented live action from the stages, including the epic Col du Turini stages run at night, will be using a mixture of aerial shots, on-board footage and land-based cameras, and will bring television viewers closer to the Monte Carlo Rally than they have ever been before. 

“This is a world premiere in rallying, a tremendous bonus for the millions of fans around the world,” managing director of Eurosport Events Geraldine Filiol said. “We are naturally proud to open the IRC season in 2010 again with the Monte Carlo Rally and I am sure that our ambitious plans are worthy of a mythical motorsport event like this.

“What viewers can look forward to is witnessing the story of the Monte Carlo Rally unfold live over the three days of the event. This pioneering development is set to bring the sport to new standards of TV coverage.”
