ICARUS Sports expands its motorsports portfolio in new appointment as media partner for the 2019 Hellas Rally.
Marking round 2 of the Mediterranean Cup for SSV and the FIM European Championship, the 2019 Hellas Rally moves to a brand new location in central Greece, renowned for its natural beauty, packed with ravines, impressive waterfalls, dense forested areas, rapid river waters, stunning trails and barren mountains, for seven days of rallying from 19-26 May 2019.
ICARUS Sports has been appointed to deliver production and international distribution services, including daily highlights packages, news VNRs, social media content, as well as inclusion in our TV Sports Magazines Gearing Up and The Outdoor Sports Show.
“Hellas Rally 2019 is a very exciting project,” commented Ilias Grapas, ICARUS Sports Head of Motorsport. “ICARUS Sports moved into the world of motorsport in the past few years, and is rapidly becoming the go-to provider. We have always held a leading position in action sports broadcast and distribution, so it was natural to expand into the motorsports environment. We have a reputation of delivery, enabling our event partners to maximise their commercial assets, increase awareness and attract a new fanbase.”
Race categories include moto, quad and SSV categories, covering distances from 160 – 250km per day. Riders can choose to stick 100% to the authentic rally route, racing across remote mountains, forests, river crossings, beaches and valleys or opt to take detours to avoid the most challenging terrain. Navigation is by traditional maps, with GPS only used for tracking and logging competitors. Overnight, the competitors will share stories of their exploits, enjoy local hospitality and spend their nights under the stars in a bivouac camp.
