IRC regulars excited by Sardinia TV coverage

Live TV deal revealed for Rally Sardinia next month
Competitors from the Intercontinental Rally Challenge have revealed their delight at the news that Eurosport will show four stages of Rally d'Italia-Sardegna live.

Europe's largest television sports channel will screen live footage of the Monte Grighine stages on Saturday and the Coiluna tests on Sunday during the event next month.

"It's not only good news for the event but also for the IRC and everyone involved,” Paul Nagle, co-driver to defending champion Kris Meeke, said. “Eurosport's onboard camera footage is brilliant for the fans watching at home and gives them a real hands-on experience of what it's like to take part in an IRC rally."

In total, the live coverage is part of six hours of broadcasting dedicated to the Sardinian event.

"Monte Carlo was always going to be the first of several IRC rallies broadcast live this year. Now, we're delighted to confirm live production for the Rally d'Italia-Sardegna," said Géraldine Filiol, Eurosport Event's Managing Director. "With some spectacular countryside and challenging stages, plus the participation of all the top IRC drivers, this rally promises a breathtakingly close competition for spectators on site and for TV viewers at home.

“Rally fans will be able to enjoy the action directly as it happens thanks to a strong coverage, including live broadcasts on Eurosport and on Eurosport Asia-Pacific, complemented by coverage on eurosport.com websites."
