It will be a bit crowded in and around Daun when the participants and fans of the Eifel Rallye Festival gather in the Volcanic Eifel on the weekend from July 21/23, 2022. There will be one hundred and fifty-five historic rally cars and an additional twenty vehicles that comprise the stage-opening squad showing themselves to the fans on the demonstration stages and also on the rally mile in Daun. "Obviously, participants and fans are waiting for the Festival just as impatiently as we are", says organisation manager Otmar Anschütz. "Thanks to the huge rush for entries, we had to close the list early, while the pre-orders for tickets and programmes are already way above anything we've ever had before."



This is a unique opportunity: at the Eifel Rally Festival shakedown (Daun, Vulkaneifel), you can bid for a ride with Wolf-Dieter Ihle in the original winning car of the legendary Pikes Peak hill climb from 1983. Enjoy the ride in the quattro, one of the most legendary vehicles in rally history.



>At the Portuguese round of the World Rally Championship, there was a foretaste of what fans will be able to experience in full at the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival from July 21st to 23rd, 2022. The FIA celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its World Rally Championship with many celebrities and champions from the WRC’s history. In the middle of it all, there were selected historic vehicles from Slowly Sideways taken from those that will appear in the Eifel.



The entry list for this year's Eifel Rally Festival will be closed early on 15 May

The entry list for this year's Eifel Rally Festival will be closed early on 15 May.

Why?

Quite simple: The interest is so huge that there are already entries for all available places. And the waiting list is also quite large. Anyone who still enters now has no realistic chance of getting a place on the starting grid. Therefore, from our point of view, it is only fair to announce this in time and close the entry list.

A very special edition of the ADAC Eifel Rally Festival will take place on the weekend of July 21-23. The festivities for what is the delayed tenth anniversary of the largest rolling rally museum plus the fiftieth season of the World Rally Championship will attract a unique field of starters to Daun in the Volcanic Eifel. "Shortly after the opening of the entry list, the one hundred and fifty available starting places were booked and the waiting list also filled up," reports Reinhard Klein (Cologne). What excited the head of Slowly Sideways, the Europe-wide association of owners of historic rally cars, was "the incredible quality and diversity of the entries. This means that we can present all facets of the fifty-year history of the WRC at our Festival."



The medias accreditation of the Eifel rally Festival is opened. The accreditation is possible only via the online form. Deadline for accreditation is the 7.07.2022.



You can by the programmes and weekend-tickets of the Eifel Rallye Festival in our webshop. The official programme of the Eifel Rallye Festival contains detailed descriptions of the stages and designated spectator areas in German, English and French. Furthermore it includes a general map and complete start lists with pictures of all participating cars.



Only ten days after the entry list for the Festival opened, the organisers already had more than one hundred and thirty registrations. "Simply impressive, a fantastic response. After an involuntary break of two years, the participants are probably awaiting our Festival just as eagerly as we are," beams Reinhard Klein (Cologne) after the first interim result. When the earth shakes again around Daun in the Volcanic Eifel on the weekend of July 21st/23rd, 2022, a very special Festival edition will take place.

When the Volcanic Eifel once again echoes to the sound of classic rally cars on the weekend of July 21st/23rd, everything will revolve around the history of rallying as the tenth edition of the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival moves into action around Daun in the Vulkaneifel. The largest rolling rally museum will present the best of fifty years of the World Rally Championship.



All good things come in threes und now the anniversary will finally be celebrated! Following the two cancelations in 2020 and 2021 due to Corona, the celebration of the 10th anniversary will now take place from 21 to 23 July 2022. Like at the nine previous events, around 160 automobile witnesses from 50 years of rally history will let fans delve into this fascinating sport on the festival weekend. Participants and fans are already shuffling their feet, the city of Daun and the surrounding Vulkaneifel are looking forward to the 'class reunion of the international rally sport'!



The response was impressive: the appeal for donations by the organisers of the ADAC Eifel Rally Festival to help those affected by the flood disaster in the Eifel region raised 40,000 euros in no time. "Already on the day after the tsunami, we received enquiries from all over Europe, the States and even Australia, asking if everything was OK with us", organisation manager Otmar Anschütz (Daun) describes the sympathy of the motorsport enthusiasts.



We launched our appeal on Sunday evening, it was shared 80 times and we reached well over 20,000 people via social media.
