"For a long time we've been hoping to avoid this, but now it's necessary to cancel the 2020 Festival," explains organisation manager Otmar Anschütz from the organising club, the MSC Daun, in a statement made today. "The restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic make it impossible to hold the Festival at the end of July without danger to everyone involved. In addition, it is not foreseeable whether our international participants and guests would even be able to come to us at all.
From 23rd to 25th of July 2020, the Jubilee is due to take place in the volcanic Eifel region around Daun. The tenth edition of the Eifel Rally Festival, the world's largest rolling rally museum, is coming up. But it is not yet certain whether this year will see a live presentation of original rally history. At the moment, nobody can reliably estimate what restrictions the Corona pandemic may still require. "It is a difficult time. We want to celebrate the anniversary festival together with the participants and fans. But only if this major event can be held safely for everyone involved," explains Otmar Anschütz the event manager from the organizing MSC Daun. "We are continuing to work on the preparations but are keeping an eye on all the developments. We will make the final decision in mid-May.
the preparations for the Eifel Rallye Festival continue to run montanly in normal tracks and we hope that the current situation of the Corona pandemic will relax until the end of May. At the latest then we have to decide if our anniversary festival can take place this year. We are very confident and would be happy to see you all healthy again in Daun from 23-25.07.2020.
For ten years now, the Eifel Rallye Festival has been presenting the history of rallying - live, original and above all close up. The jubilee event that will run from July 23rd to the 25th 2020 in the Volcanic Eifel area around Daun promises to be an absolute cracker. Already before the opening of the entry list in March there are many requests to participate. "In order to allow a large variety of vehicles, we have to pay even closer attention this year to only allow a limited number of individual models.
