Rally Ger­many set for move south east

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Rally Ger­many is set to move from its Trier base for the first time in its 14-year World Rally Cham­pi­onship his­tory later this year.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion of the event will be taken over by a dif­fer­ent re­gion of the ADAC, the gov­ern­ing body of mo­tor­sport in Ger­many. ADAC Saar­land not ADAC Mit­tel­rhein will run it from next sea­son, most likely mean­ing a shift to St Wen­del, Saar­land’s cap­i­tal which is south-east of Trier.

The ADAC has con­firmed the Saar­land move, with the re­gional back­ing con­firm­ing the event for four years.

“I am pleased we se­cured the event’s fu­ture un­til 2020,” said ADAC sport pres­i­dent Her­mann Tom­czyk. “Over the com­ing months, ADAC Saar­land will have the task of putting the fin­ish­ing touches to its sus­tain­able con­cept in­tended to main­tain the char­ac­ter­is­tics of Rally Deutsch­land.”

While the host town will move, the vine­yard and mil­i­tary roads, as well as the Saar­land coun­try lanes, will re­main un­changed.
