Strong partners for the 2017 ADAC Rallye Deutschland

17.08.2017: - Greater support than ever for the German FIA WRC rally When the FIA World Rally Championship comes to the Saarland and its neighbouring

-  Greater support than ever for the German FIA WRC rally

When the FIA World Rally Championship comes to the Saarland and its neighbouring regions from 17 to 20 August 2017, the ADAC Rallye Deutschland will be the hub of the rally world. ADAC can rely on strong partners and sponsors to make this mega event, which is drawing participants and fans from all over the world to the lakeshores of Bostalsee, a success. In addition to several long-term associates, more committed partners than ever are supporting one of the largest sporting events.


Most of the 309 kilometres of combined Special Stage mileage at this year's ADAC Rallye Deutschland are located in the German federal state of Saarland. As the event's organiser, ADAC closely cooperates with the different municipal bodies, authorities and decision-makers as regards planning, approvals and implementation. In addition to planning the itinerary, the support in preparing the infrastructure of the new Service Park on the lakeshores of Bostalsee plays a key role.


The state capital of the Saarland is the new start location for the 2017 ADAC Rallye Deutschland. For the first time, the ceremonial start of the WRC rally will take place on Tbilisser Platz in front of the State Theatre.

Starting in the afternoon, fans can enjoy interviews and a large brand world where partners of ADAC Rallye Deutschland present themselves. The participants will then head straight for Wilhelm-Heinrich-Brücke to enter the first Special Stage - a spectacular city circuit.

St Wendel

This town of motor sport enthusiasts in the northern Saarland will be in the limelight especially on Saturday, 19 August: The regrouping after the morning stages, and tests on the Panzerplatte and the first runs through the Freisen and Römerstraße SS, will take place on St Wendel's castle square. During this intermission, there will be a great variety of support events, including interviews, live music and rally coverage on a giant video screen.


The car manufacturer will be present not only in the two runs of the ADAC Opel Rallye Cup at the German WRC rally, but will also set up their ADAC Opel Rallye Cup village at the Bostalsee Service Park. Moreover, they will also provide the Opel ADAM Cup as the zero car and for taxi rides.
