The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) will be one of the main sponsors of the

the international motorsport calendar with an enviable track record, the FxPro
Cyprus Rally will see competitors tackling the island’s challenging special stages.
One of the rounds of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship, the event will also,
for the first time, bring the 12-round 2010 Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC)
calendar to a close.


The event, which will host leading names from the international rallying
community, is a favourite amongst motorsport fans. On the same weekend,
Cyprus will also host the inaugural Love Cyprus Golden Stage Rally on 7
November, an innovative new one-day rallying format to showcase the sport with
teams going head to head on a unique special stage for a minimum prize fund of
€150,000.00.

Attracted to the stunning Cyprus countryside, the major sports station Eurosport
have chosen the 2010 FxPro Cyprus Rally for live special stage broadcasts, with
four stages – and the Love Cyprus Golden Stage Rally - set to be transmitted live
to rally fans. Cyprus is, of course, a leading holiday destination and many sports
fans will use the rally as an opportunity to combine spectating at a world-calibre
sporting event with an unforgettable holiday in the sun. With the event based
around the popular coastal resort of Limassol, which boasts a wealth of cafes,
restaurants, beaches and more, there’s plenty for tourists to see and do.

Cyprus Tourism Organisation Chairman Alecos Orountiotis, commented: “Cyprus
has built an enviable reputation for hosting world-class sporting events and we
are especially proud to be hosting this exciting new event. Our island boasts
many strengths – including its outstanding climate, its beautiful scenery, and its
extensive range of facilities – and we are sure that the many fans of motorsport
who will watch this event will also become fans of our beautiful island.”
