Now in its second year, the official Eifel Rallye Festival app will be fully able to cope with the rush of spectators coming to Daun. While the design and the functionality have been improved radically, the features are identical as in 2013:

  • Current news during the event
  • Complete event time table
  • Description of all cars with the chance to vote for each of them



In its current issue, the German classic car magazine "Oldtimer Markt" offers a prize draw for co-drives during the Eifel Rallye Festival. Readers of the magazine have the choice between four different co-driver seats: During shakedown they can have a ride with the Flying Finn Harri Toivonen in his original MG Metro 6R4 from 1986, with multiple German Rally Champion Matthias Kahle in the ever-sideways Skoda 130 RS or in a car of their choice. Alternatively, you can also join Peter Steinfurth, the chief editor of the magazine, on one of the nicest weekends of his work life as he will be driving a BMW 2002ti himself and is looking for a co-driver for the whole event.



Das ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival (24. - 26. Juli 2014) lockt alle in die Vulkaneifel. Das größte rollende Museum historischer Rallye-Fahrzeuge entwickelt sich nicht nur zum exklusiven Zusammentreffen von nahezu allen Sportgeräten, die jemals Rallye-Pfade bezwangen, auch die damaligen Chauffeure finden immer mehr Gefallen daran, ein jährliches Treffen in Daun zu organisieren. Hubert Böffgen aus Gerolstein, der als Rallye-Leiter in der Eifel die sportlichen Festival-Fäden zieht, hat eine Erklärung für den großen Zuspruch: "Unser Orga-Mitglied Reinhard Klein hat sich in seinen langen Jahren in der Weltmeisterschaft ein riesiges Netzwerk zu  allen Teilnehmern geschaffen.

This spring, the Klein family from Cologne/Germany faced the usual “problem”. Once the entry list for the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival (July 24-26, 2014) had opened, entries kept coming in via all possible means including e-mail, fax and regular mail. Reinhard Klein, the head of the Slowly Sideways group, was busy with his inbox, commented: “We have received 200 entries but can only allow 150 cars, thus we had to sort the various entries. In order to achieve our goal and reach a maximum variety of cars, we have only accepted one identically-liveried example of a particular model but we have still reached 120 participants easily.”



Highlights 2014

  • The legendary Walter Röhrl as patron of the event

  • Participants from 12 countries worldwide

  • Vehicles from at least 30 manufacturers and 5 decades of rallying history

  • Open air cinema showing rally films from H. Deimel

  • Including all-gravel Bosch Super Stage

The idea – unique in Europe

  • Living rally history

  • A chance to see the cars that made the history of rallying: from the two-stroke Saab and Trabant up
    to the wild Group B supercars



Last year our Belgian friends came with no less than 3 Belga Ford Escorts to our Eifel Rallye Festival und they made a truly great show, especially our VIP guest driver Robert Droogmans. The Belga trio is also available as a model car set in scale 1:43 and with the original decals from the 2013 Eifel Rallye Festival. As you can see, the background picture shows the three cars during a photo shoot on the Daun airfield.



The entry list is officially open from today – Saturday, February 15th – and the organisers of the Eifel Rallye Festival are expecting to be overwhelmed by a flood of entries. They can accept 150 historic rally cars for their three-day demonstration event but the list is always over-subscribed and will fill up long before the event is held on the last weekend of July.

The message for owners of cars who want to participate in this year’s Eifel Rallye Festival is clear – get moving and get in the queue or you might just be unlucky !



The entry list to the Eifel Rallye Festival 2014 has been opened. The entry form and entry form to the service park are available in the download area. The registration to the service park is to be submitted with the entry form.



It has been announced that the date for the 2014 edition of the Eifel Rallye Festival will be July 24th/26th.
In 2013, more than 40,000 fans came from all parts of Europe to watch one hundred and fifty historic rally cars tackle two days of classic stages just south of the Nürburgring and at the same time celebrate the fortieth birthday of the World Rally Championship. The Eifel Rally Festival is not, however, a competition since the cars and crews drive the stages untimed merely to demonstrate the sights and sounds of rallying as it was in years past.



The following documents for the Eifel Rallye Festival 2014 are available now in the notice board: Regulations 2014, information for participants 2014



This DVD of the 2013 Eifel Rallye Festival comes back on the event with action videos, as well as presentations of famous cars, great onboard footages, and captivating interviews with the stars of rallying like Walter Röhrl, Stig Blomqvist and Björn Waldegård.



The special exhibition of Automotive Tradition, the “Bosch Fotogruppe” and the “Bosch Oldtimerschraubern” at the Bosch headquarters in Stuttgart is coming to an end and will soon move to Abstatt. The theme of the exhibition is the connection between emotions and Bosch recreational activities.



The organizers of the Eifel Rallye Festival are pleased to announce that the Eifel Rallye Festival in 2014 will be continued.
