Spectator Voting – Victory for the Lancia Stratos

In the 1970s, the Lancia Stratos changed the face of rallying. It was the first purpose-built rally car ever built - and it is still successful. The fans of the Eifel Rallye Festival just voted it as the greatest car of the 2014 event. First place went to the 1974 Alitalia car of Fred Walter/Klaus Hucke (start number 61). Runner up was a vehicle that can hardly be more different than the Stratos. This was the Opel Commodore GS/E driven by Andreas Kramer/Thomas Kalbitzer (No. 23).

Safety first

For 2014, the organisers of the Eifel Rallye Festival are going striking into a new direction in terms of the safety of the cars and drivers. The scrutineering do not only check the safety equipment of the cars including roll cage, seat belts, seats and fire extinguishers but also the personal safety equipment of the crews.

"This comprises helmet, balaclava, overall, underwear as well as socks, shoes and gloves for the driver."
