Rallye Deutschland

The run of gravel events comes to an end with the tricky tarmac stages of Rallye Deutschland. A home event for our Alzenau-based team, the rally was also the scene of our first ever WRC victory back in 2014. First held in 1982 as part of the European Championship, Germany became part of the WRC in 2002. It is often viewed as the most demanding of the tarmac events, as a result of its different surface characteristics.

Rally Germany is almost like three different tarmac rallies rolled into one! The opening stages take place on tight, twisty vineyard roads in the Mosel region. Crews move onto the military roads of Baumholder, with multiple tarmac types and treacherous Hinkelstein rocks lining the route, before covering country roads on the final day.

    We took Rally Germany by surprise in 2014, taking a 1-2 in our debut season. We’ve since added many WRC victories and podiums but Germany holds a special memory.

    Rally Germany is always popular for our colleagues, who get to see their work in action. The Alzenau factory is just 2.5 hours on the motorway from the service park.
