Coverage of the six-way fight for this year's Intercontinental Rally Challenge title will be shown live on Eurosport during next month's Cyprus Rally.
Viewers in 120 countries will be able to watch four live stages from the Limassol-based event as Jan Kopecky, Juho Hanninen, Thierry Neuville, Andreas Mikkelsen, Freddy Loix and Bryan Bouffier go head-to-head in a double points finale. The Cyprus Rally runs from November 3-5.
Eurosport will also be screening live coverage of the Golden Stage Rally on November 6, which pits the drivers against each other in a shot at a £130,000 prize fund.
"The television coverage of the Cyprus Rally, which includes several live broadcasts, will reflect and enhance what is set to be a thrilling conclusion to a dramatic fifth season of IRC action," said Eurosport Events' motorsport director Francois Ribeiro.
"With so many drivers in contention for the title, it's only right so many fans around the world will get the opportunity to see the battle unfold."
