Eurosport has put together a 12-round European Rally Championship calendar for the first year of its decade-long deal to promote the series

Eurosport set to launch 12-event European Rally calendar

The calendar, which was revealed by Motorsport News earlier this week, has yet to be confirmed - although it is expected to be ratified by Eurosport ahead of the Sanremo Rally in Italy this week.

Next year's revamped ERC starts in the same place as this year, with Austria's Janner Rally running the opening round. For the first time, a Eurosport-backed series will run a full snow rally when the ERC heads for the Latvia's snow-sure stages on the Winter Rally.

The Circuit of Ireland is included in the ERC for the first time since 1983. The calendar includes such European classics as Ypres and Poland and former World Rally Championship favourite the Tour de Corse. The series closes with the Cyprus Rally.
