Renowned Belgian event the Ypres Rally will remain part of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge schedule for at least the next three years.
Ypres has been an IRC date since the series' inception, and is one of the championship's most historic events. It has now extended its deal with the IRC through 2013.
Rally manager Alain Penasse said: "Since 2006 we witnessed closely the growing success of the IRC series as our rally was part of the original pilot series. We have put in place a highly successful cooperation in the meantime.
"The last edition of the rally in June of this year achieved extensive TV coverage all over the world and we have noticed an extremely large amount of rally fans on our stages. We are convinced that we will bring another dimension in 2011."
Next year's Ypres Rally takes place on 23-25 June.
