* FxPro Cyprus Rally to get four hours of live coverage on Eurosport
* Two hours of live television for inaugural Golden Stage Rally

The 2010 Intercontinental Rally Challenge season is set for a thrilling climax in Cyprus from 4-6 November – and Eurosport will be there to show four hours of live television coverage from the demanding gravel event, regarded in international rallying as one of the toughest tests of both driver and machine.
The FxPro Cyprus Rally is set to be one of the highlights of this year’s IRC. Not only will it bring the curtain down on IRC season number four, it will also confirm the respective winners of the IRC Drivers‘ and Manufacturers‘ titles, plus the IRC 2WD Cup for pilots and car makes at a special IRC awards Ceremony in Limassol on Sunday evening 7 November.
In addition, Eurosport, Europe’s largest television sports channel, will 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 (7 November) and carries a massive prize fund of 150,000 Euros.
Lumiere TV (LTV), the Cypriot channel, will also propose extensive live broadcasts of both the FxPro Cyprus Rally and the Love Cyprus Golden Stage Rally.
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. The stage will be known as the Love Cyprus Golden Stage in deference to support from the country’s tourism authority.
"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 6 hours of live broadcasts on Eurosport’s platform" she concluded.
