Imola, April 6, 2018 – Youthstream, the MXGP World Championship promotional and marketing company, has announced an important agreement with RAI, by virtue of which the National Broadcasting Company will broadcast race 2 at 5pm live on Rai Sport starting from the next round at Arco di Trento, which is being held this coming weekend.
The MXGP World Championship, which until last year was prerecorded then broadcast on Thursdays, marks a significant change in television coverage by opening itself up to less diehard fans. The achievements of Tony Cairoli and Kiara Fontanesi are undoubtedly noteworthy, however the presence in the calendar of a prestigious event such as that of Imola is considered by insiders the highlight of the season.
Uberto Selvatico Estense (President of Formula Imola): “An excellent result, which gives a deserved visibility to a spectacular and exciting sport. The work of Tony Cairoli and Kiara Fontanesi have surely helped pushed this decision; on our part we will see even more value added through excellence such as this at the Autodromo, which solidifies itself as an ideal stage for major international events. And it will surely be an important showcase for the city of Imola and its surrounding territory.”
