    That is seemingly the truth.
    So there's no point in complaining about it - when organisers. sponsors aren't bothered about live TV. You get the sport you deserve....

    Though I still think its the promoter who should provide the money for the TV, not the event organisers. Promoters do very little promoting....

    Gladly, in Açores there are spectators everywhere, in fact the whole Island stops to see the rally. Even so, Açores Rally organizers, alongside the national TV local center, broadcast live two stages on this year rally, plus the pre event street stage. None was showed on EuroSport channels. Probably the only cost for ES would be satellite time, a small fraction of the generous fee paid by Açores organizers; still ES chose to show snooker games or summer ski jumps…

    Azores needs more 300.000 euros for next year edition, organizers are saying.

    An event that generated a return of EUR 14 million in the past 3 years I do not understand how they have difficulty in getting further money to complete the budget.

    They’ll get it, don’t worry. Açores Rally has become one of the most charismatic ERC events and local authorities are fully committed to it. That’s why organizers managed to extend their contract with Eurosport till 2019. What really matters now is too have ES doing a proper job promoting ERC; otherwise people will probably start to question the huge public funding value.

    So, what exactly do Eurosport? Very little it seems. Very little promotion, even less in regards to Live TV; just collecting 'hosting fees'.

    Maybe because they realised that their investment was total loss and didn't fulfil their expectations?why on earth should they abandon a profitable product?
