Drivers and machines at the limit

   

When the ADAC Rallye Deutschland was first included on the schedule of the FIA WRC in 2002, the declared objective of the planners was to create a special task for the world rally elite: they were looking for a challenge worthy of the best of the best and a uniquely spectacular feature in the rally to draw maximum spectator numbers.



They found this and more on the Baumholder military range, which had become the highlight of the Hunsrück rally over the years. The stages and tests on the Panzerplatte on the 12,000 hectare tank range were to become an identifying element of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland. The fans love it for its unique arena atmosphere, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else.



The teams are in awe of it for the extreme challenges it poses on both the drivers and their machines. More often than not, the winner of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland is determined here. A number of factors have contributed to the cult status of the "Platte".


       
      
EQUIPMENT AT THE LIMIT        
 
   
How the works teams prepare for the ADAC Rallye Deutschland

   

Star WRC drivers such as Sébastien Ogier or Thierry Neuville are running an intensive testing programme in preparation for the challenges the asphalt roads of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland pose. In addition, the major works teams such as Hyundai Motor Sport or the M-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAM implement numerous technical adaptations to their rally cars.



Read here what matters for the engineers and why they will be mounting the largest brakes of the whole WRC season for the ADAC Rallye Deutschland, and how important "gravel crews" are.

       
      
ULTIMATE TRIVIA
       
 
The tightest win        


Last year, Sébastien Ogier had to fight hard until the very end for his third win at the ADAC Rallye Deutschland. After over 306 rally kilometres, the champion from France was only 20.3 seconds ahead of Dani Sordo who in turn crossed the Finish line only 0.1 seconds ahead of Thierry Neuville.



But this was not the tightest win in the history of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland as a WRC event. In 2003, after 388km of tests and stages, winner Sébastien Loeb was only 3.6 seconds ahead of runner-up Marcus Grönholm and 19.7 seconds ahead of third-placed Richard Burns.




 Loeb can also boast the most relaxed win: in 2012, for the last of his nine wins in Germany, the Frenchman was 2:00.1 minutes ahead of runner-up Jari-Matti Latvala when he crossed the Finish line.


       
      
ST WENDEL IS WORTH THE TRIP        
 

   
In St Wendel they are crazy about rallies. The district seat in the northern Saarland is close to the new Bostalsee Service Park. But this is not the only reason why St. Wendel is a real insider's tip for any visitor to the Rally Germany region. Hikers and cyclists appreciate the award-winning network of hiking and biking trails spreading through the variegated countryside.



The trails are a good way to explore the history of St Wendelin of Trier. The picturesque old town of St Wendel also has much to offer to the connoisseur. There are themed fairs and tasteful events as well as culinary variety in a setting exuding summertime flair.



So much hospitality explains why the ADAC Rallye Deutschland is not the only sports event appreciating the location. Other major sports events include the ADAC Supermoto, the Mountain Bike World Cup and the Duathlon World Championship.
