A new bus for Daun – supported by the Eifel Rallye Festival
Since yesterday, a new bus is running over the streets of Daun and the Vulkaneifel region. Gerd Becker, Chairman of the local "Bürger für Bürger" organisation, picked up a new Peugeot Boxer at the local Peugeot dealer which will in the future serve all those people from Daun and the surrounding area which are not able to use public transport when they have to visit a doctor or the authorities. This new service is also possible thanks to an eBay auction initiated by the Eifel Rallye Festival. Before the event, a co-drive with two-time World Rally Champion Walter Röhrl in an Audi Sport Quattro was sold on eBay for 4.565,11 Euros. The car owner, Wolf-Dieter Ihle, even doubled the amount afterwards to a total of 9,130.22 Euros. A cheque over this sum was given to the "Bürger für Bürger" organisation during the shakedown of this year's Eifel Rallye Festival.
And there is even more to come: Yesterday, a second charity project of the Eifel Rallye Festival started. From now until August 7th, a "Group B Memorial Plaque" is auctioned on eBay. The proceeds achieved during the auction will also be given to "Bürger für Bürger".
