For the first time ever, the Eifel Rallye Festival DVD is available directly from international Amazon shops. The review on the 2014 edition can be purchased in France, Italy, Spain and the UK. Although the prices are slightly higher than in Germany (due to the postage to these countries), this is the cheapest way to get the DVD for all rally fans living in these four countries.
Last week, our partner RallyWebShop has received a nice delivery. The DVD reviewing the 2014 Eifel Rallye Festival is now available from our partner shop.
Description of the DVD:
Featuring almost one hundred different types of cars, the 2014 Eifel Rallye Festival set a new record in terms of variety. This exercise in time travel on four wheels began with the Volvo Amazon and Mini Cooper and ended with the first World Rally Cars from Ford, Subaru and Toyota. This DVD shows classic rally cars from five decades in action on the stages and, for the first time, also includes compelling aerial shots showing the atmosphere of the Vulkaneifel region during the Festival.
The Eifel Rallye Festival is one of the finalists of the “International Historic Motoring Awards” in the category “Motorsport Event of the Year”. The Festival was nominated for this prestigious award by the readers of the German edition of the magazine “Octane”. In the finals, it will compete against the greatest historic motor sports events from all over the world including the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, the Le Mans Classic and last year’s winner, Silverstone Classic. The winner will be announced during the awards gala in London on November 20.
I knew Björn from his first RAC Rally appearance in 1965 until his last appearance on a competitive event - the Safari Classic of 2013. I was reporting rallies during his early successes, particularly the Monte Carlo victories of 1969 and 1970. I never co-drove with him in the proper sense but I did sit beside him on half a dozen 'Slowly Sideways' events in Porsche 911s and Toyota Celica Turbos. A nicer man you could not have wished to meet for whom I think no one could possibly have a bad word. Technically competent concerning the car and a brilliant natural driver behind the wheel, he will be universally mourned.
