Rallye Deutschland

The first official rallying event to take place on German soil was the ‘Olympic Rally’ of 1972, which saw a course devised to connect all of the host venues being used for the Munich Games. However, it would be a further ten years until the official Rallye Deutschland was established. Previously hosted in a variety of locations around the country, including Frankfurt, Mainz and Trier, the 2017 edition of the rally will be based in the Saarland. Formerly an event in both the German Rally Championship and European Rally Championship, it only became a part of the FIA WRC calendar in 2002.

  • Rallye Deutschland has often been described as multiple rallies in one with many different types of tarmac being used for stages in recent seasons.
  • Shakedown will provide a useful opportunity for crews to get acquainted with the challenging tarmac. Just ask Thierry and Nicolas, who damaged their car in 2014 shakedown before going onto the spectacularly win the rally!
  • The weather can sometimes play a key role in Germany so close co-operation with support crews will be beneficial to plan each stage, especially more unfamiliar tests.
