Andrzej Witkowski, the President of the Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Federation, has welcomed the news that Eurosport will broadcast live four stages of the country’s FIA European Rally Championship round.

Eurosport Events confirmed the exciting plans yesterday and President Witkowski said it was a significant milestone for LOTOS 70th Rally Poland, which forms round nine of the 2013 FIA ERC season.

“For the first time in the history of rallying in Poland, as many as four special stages will be broadcast live,” said President Witkowski. “It is symbolic it will happen during the jubilee of LOTOS 70th Rally Poland underlying the importance of this great sporting event. We are very pleased that Eurosport Events, the promoter of the FIA European Rally Championship, has chosen our event as the round, which deserves to be broadcast live around the world. We are confident that TV viewers will not complain about the lack of sport excitement on spectacular gravel stages and the unique Masurian landscape will complement the coverage.”

LOTOS 70th Rally Poland takes place from 13-15 September. Formula One race winner and national hero Robert Kubica (pictured) will be on of the star attractions and a favourite for victory.
