For the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival taking place next weekend, a total of 64 Group B and Group S cars will make their way to the beautiful Vulkaneifel region in the very west of Germany setting an all-time record. The number of cars coming to Daun from July 21-23 even tops the best WRC rounds of the mid-80s. In the heyday of Group B rallying, that record was set by the 1000 Lakes Rally of 1984 where 63 Group B cars entered.

The organisers of the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival have published the entry list of this year's event that will take place from July 21-23, 2016. The line-up of the three-day demonstration event is simply stunning and comprises participants from 17 countries, cars from 36 different manufacturers and more than 60 spectacular Group B and S cars. The field of 150 cars is once again headed by Walter Röhrl, double World Champion and patron of the event, with start number 1. Röhrl is followed by former World Champions Miki Biasion and Stig Blomqvist, European Champion Yves Loubet and the German Champions Harald Demuth and Matthias Kahle plus more than hundred gentlemen drivers who are keen on showing their cars to the audience.

Thirty years after they were banned from international rallying, the Group B cars will celebrate their greatest show ever at the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival (July 21-23, 2016). The MSC Daun, organisers of the three-day demonstration event, are proud to announce that they have, by now, confirmation that 65 Group B and Group S cars will attend the Festival. This will make it the biggest collection of top-class Group B cars ever in the history of the sport. The venue for this unique show is the beautiful Vulkaneifel region just south of the world-famous Nürburgring race track.

The Return of Group B is the theme for this year's Eifel Rallye Festival (July 21-23, 2016) and it will almost certainly be the biggest collection of Group B cars in one place since this category was banned from international rallying in 1986. "Already we have fifty-five Group B and Group S cars confirmed that will attend the Eifel Rallye Festival - and there are a few very exotic cars still in the pipeline.

This year, the roaring from the cars and crowds will be louder than ever at the Eifel Rallye Festival (July 21-23, 2016). The three-day event is celebrating the ever-popular Group B supercars thirty years after they were banned from international rallying. The organisers are working hard to reach their ambitious goal set for the sixth running of the event.
