From July 22nd to 24th of 2021, it was planned to hold the tenth edition of the Eifel Rally Festival in the Volcanic Eifel around Daun. But the world's largest rolling rally museum will not open its doors again until 2022. "The Eifel Rallye Festival exists principally for its participants and the thousands of fans. Demonstration drives of historic rally cars, the enthusiastic fans out on the stages, autograph requests, petrol-head chatter, worldwide meeting of rally drivers all sharing the pleasure of reminiscing about the sport and its cars – this is what makes our Festival so very special," explains organisation manager Otmar Anschütz (Daun).

In another virtual Orga meeting it was agreed that the opening of the entry list will not start before April. "We all know about the circumstances and there it would be wrong to switch to 'normal mode' already now.

The date for the next ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival is set. After the cancellation of the 2020 edition due to CV-19, the celebration of its tenth anniversary will now take place from July 22nd to 24th in 2021. As in the previous nine years, around one hundred and sixty rally cars covering fifty years of rallying history will bring the fans to the event that celebrates this fascinating sport over the Festival weekend.

"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.

Due to the current situation regarding the Corona Pandemic, the opening of the webshop of the Eifel Rallye Festival is postponed. We ask for your understanding for this measure.
