Winner of the photographic competition 2014



Rallyewelt trauert um Björn Waldegard

Seit Freitag, den 29. August, ist die Rallyewelt um einen seiner ganz Großen ärmer geworden. Björn Waldegard verstarb viel zu früh an seinem Krebsleiden. Er wollte noch zum diesjährigen Eifel Rallye Festival kommen, rief aber eine Woche vorher an und entschuldigte sich.
