Eifel Rallye Festival nominated for “Motorsport Event of the Year” award
For the second year running, the Eifel Rallye Festival is one of the finalists of the "International Historic Motoring Awards". As in the previous year, the Festival is the only rally event nominated in the category "Motorsport Event of the Year". In the finals, it will compete against the greatest historic motor sports events from all over the world including the "Classic 24 Daytona" in the US, the "Phillip Island Classic Festival of Motorsport" in Australia, the "Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort" and the "Silverstone Classic". The winner will be announced during the awards gala in London on November 19.
The "International Historic Motoring Awards" were founded in 2011 and now consists of twelve different categories. The "Motorsport Event of the Year" category is for historic motorsport events anywhere in the world, from race meetings to trials and non-timed road or off-road rallies. The judges will be looking for a memorable event, not just a spectacular individual race within a meeting or stage within a rally. The jury is made up of panel of well-known experts including former race drivers Derek Bell and Jochen Mass.
