Walter Röhrl, 68, D – Fiat 131 & Porsche 911

Walter Röhrl is an integral part of the Eifel Rallye Festival just as his favourite rally, the Monte Carlo, is an integral part of the WRC. In Daun, the two-times World Champion – in 1980 for Fiat and in 1982 for Opel – traditionally drives various rally cars from his career. This year, Röhrl will show his driving skills in a Porsche 911 and in a Fiat 131 Abarth – the car with which he won his first WRC title.

Scheich Abdullah Al Thani (56, QAT) – Citroën SM Proto

A royal visitor: At the Eifel Rallye Festival, Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani - the former Prime Minister of Qatar - will pursue his passion and take part in the event driving a Citroën SM Proto. With this very rare and special rally car, the Member of the Royal Family of Qatar has already tackled the Rallye du Maroc Historique. Abdullah Al Thani is the very first Arab to take part in the Festival.

Guy Colsoul (68, B) – Opel Manta 400

Guy Colsoul and an Opel – this was a highly successful combination in Belgian rallying from 1975 to 1987. It was in this era that Colsoul won the Belgian Rally Championship twice – in 1979 driving a Kadett GT/E and in 1981 at the wheel of an Ascona 400. Internationally, Colsoul came to fame through his great successes on the Rally Dakar. His best result was fourth overall in 1984 driving an Opel Manta.

Once you have caught the rally bug in your youth and progressed from collecting small trophies, to class wins and finally to overall wins, it is extremely likely that this bug will stay with you for life. However, once you have stopped doing that and settled into your normal occupation, you can see things a bit more clearly and realize that chasing cups and class positions is not the ultimate thing in your life.

Festival Parade - New in 2015

They might be too valuable or too fragile to do the whole rally with more than 100 kms of stages, but they can certainly tackle a single stage. The organisers of the Eifel Rally Festival have introduced a new idea in the hope of attracting some exceptional rally cars to their event and to show them in motion.
