Route

  • 2013 rally started outside Cologne Cathedral before journeying south to its traditional Trier base in south-west Germany.
  • Three distinct types of stages – bumpy narrow Mosel vineyard roads, Baumholder military tracks with many different surfaces and smooth country tests in Saarland. 
  • 2014 route details to be confirmed. 

Challenge

  • Viewed as the most difficult of the end-of-season asphalt encounters.
  • Working efficiently with safety note crews, who drive the stages ahead of competitors, to have up-to-date information about road surface and weather. 
  • Unpredictable weather in the mountains makes tyre choice tricky.
  • Avoiding huge car-breaking kerb stones, known as hinkelsteins, in Baumholder.
  • Baumholder is slippery in the dry and treacherous in the wet.

Car spec

  • Asphalt suspension – low settings which provide stability and improved balance.
  • Different road characteristics in the same group of stages mean set-up is often a compromise.
  • Hard compound rubber available for dry conditions, with soft option for wet or cold weather.
