The Ypres Rally will also get good coverage on Belgian TV!

Eurosport is really pushing the envelope to get the Belgian leg of the IRC on TV. They will broadcast 4 stages live on Eurosport and will broadcast images from the service-park and interviews during the week after the rally. It is an effort without precedent from Eurosport. The Belgian broadcasters have turned their attention to the Belgium Ypres Rally 09 too however. RTBF, RTL, Sporza, LifeTV and some of the local broadcasters such as WTV and TV Limburg will relay images from the Westhoek back to your lounge.

RTBF will actually broadcast the 4 live stages on Friday and Saturday via their internet site (www.rtbf.be/sport ). The live stage on Friday (stage 6) will also be broadcasted on La Deux, be it with a slight delay. On Sunday, La Deux will spend 26 minutes on the rally at 19h45 in a special programme about the Belgium Ypres Rally!

Also Sporza will pay due attention to the race, as they do for all the rallies of the Belgian Championship. There will be a report on the Belgium Ypres Rally on Sunday afternoon (timing still to be confirmed). Furthermore Een will also cover the Belgium Ypres Rally in their Friday News of 13h, 19h and 23h, and on Saturday News of 13h, 19h and 23h, and finally on Sunday News at 13h.

RTL will dedicate its motorsports programme Moteurs entirely to the Belgium Ypres Rally and Peter Baert will comment on the race on Pitstop on LifeTV. He will also report on the Belgian Championship and the Belgium Ypres Historic Rally. The local broadcasters finally will pay more attention to the local drivers.

So those who will not have the chance to come to Ypres should have plenty of opportunities to follow the events on TV.
