Route

  • Three distinct types of stages – bumpy narrow Mosel vineyard roads, Baumholder military tracks with many different surfaces and smooth country tests in Saarland. 
  • Friday’s opening leg contains vineyard roads, but also heads further north than usual for a test close to Belgium. 
  • Saturday is dominated by the daunting Panzerplatte military tests while the final day is based entirely in the Mosel vineyards.

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.
