IRC: Cyprus finale to get four hours of live coverage

OFFICIAL: FxPro Cyprus Rally to get four hours of live coverage on Eurosport. Plus there will be two hours of live television for the inaugural Golden Stage Rally.
Eurosport has confirmed that it will show four hours of live television coverage from the FxPro Cyprus Rally, the final round in the 2010 Intercontinental Rally Challenge, which runs from November 4-6.

In addition, Eurosport will also transmit two hours of live coverage from the Love Cyprus Golden Stage Rally, a new stand alone event which takes place over a single stage, albeit run twice, the following day on November 7 and carries a massive prize fund of 150,000 Euros.

The Love Cyprus Golden Stage Rally has been 'designed to showcase rallying in a new and exciting way by making it accessible, understandable and attractive to a wider audience'. The compact, 'fan and television-friendly format' covers a single 25-kilometre mixed-surface stage run twice. It will be known as the Love Cyprus Golden Stage in deference to support from the country's tourism authority. Entries for both events are still available.

"Cyprus is going to be a very special weekend of rallying as the island will host the deciding round of this season's 12-event IRC series, but also the inaugural high drama Golden Stage Rally, which aims to attract a new legion of fans to the sport through its compact, all-action format," said Geraldine Filiol, managing director of Eurosport Events.

"With spectacular countryside and breathtaking views, the demanding nature of the Cyprus stages will increase the task facing the crews as they battle for glory, making it ideal for live television.

"We are delighted to announce that rally fans will be able to enjoy this exciting and innovative rallying double-header directly as it happens thanks to a strong television coverage, including [in total] six hours of live broadcasts on Eurosport's platform."
