The European Broadcasting Union and its production house, EPC, will sort distribution of television coverage for Rally Mexico this weekend, the FIA has announced.

The FIA also added that discussions are taking place with the EBU for the other remaining ten events of the 2012 World Rally Championship.

The full statement read: “The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and its production house EPC for the distribution of the 2012 WRC Rally Guanajuato Mexico.

“Relying on a strong relationship with its members in rally's territories and on an efficient international distribution network, the EBU has been retained for the next round of the FIA World Rally Championship and further discussions are planned to ensure consistent distribution and production for the remainder of the 2012 season.

“In parallel, the FIA is currently assessing the numerous proposals received after the call for expression of interest it has launched to identify the best possible partner(s) to build a strong platform for the growth of the Championship from 2013 onwards.”

The FIA is hoping to appoint a new promoter for the WRC by the end of this month.
