Ursula Kleinmanns, Reinhard Klein et Otmar Anschütz ont rendu visite aujourd'hui à la famille Visser. La joie était grande - des deux côtés. Les organisateurs de l'Eifel Rallye Festival ont été particulièrement satisfaits des progrès considérables réalisés par le couple sur la voie de la guérison. Mais aussi les plans pour la visite du festival anniversaire en juillet 2020 ont été abordés. "Nous les avons invités et serions très heureux si la visite pouvait être réalisée!



The date for the tenth anniversary edition of the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival is set. From July 23rd to the 25th next year, the tenth edition will take place in the Vulkaneifel centred, as usual, around the starting and finishing point of Daun. As in the previous nine years, around one hundred and sixty rally cars covering fifty years of rally history will bring the fans to the tracks of this fascinating sport over the Festival weekend.



Le shakedown du Festival des Rallyes de l'Eifel de cette année était terminé avant même qu'il n'ait vraiment commencé. Il y a eu quelques blessés dans un accident, les plus graves étant Titia et Mets Visser des Pays-Bas. Beaucoup de participants, d'assistants, de fonctionnaires et de fans se sont interrogés à plusieurs reprises sur leur état de santé. Avec l'accord des deux conjoints, nous faisons le point aujourd'hui :



Bram Lambrechts, Herk-deStad, Belgien, Gilian van Harmelen, Almere, Niederlande, Andreas Dietrich, Langöns, Deutschland, Nina Müller, Düsseldorf, Christoph Schneider, Hamburg, Deutschland - these are the five photographers that have impressed our chief juror Reinhard Klein most with their particularly spectacular, atmospheric, artistic or simply inventive pictures and are thus the winners of this year's photo competition. They have 'beaten' 82 photographers from 10 different countries who have send in a total of more than 400 images.

In the volcanic Eifel around Daun, the earth will tremble and the air will burn. But the reason is not the extinct volcanoes that gave this landscape its name. At the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival (July 18th/20th 2019) one hundred and seventy cars from the history of rallying will set the region vibrating. At the largest rolling rally museum, often referred to as the "The Elephant Parade of Historic Rally Sports", there is a comprehensive collection of original and faithful rally cars from the history of this wonderful sport.<br><br>The reputation of the Eifel Rallye Festival now extends far beyond Europe, and the origin of the cars, drivers and fans at the event this year is testimony to the 2019 motto of "Rally Around the World".



Fabian Gaukler's winning photo from 2018 has everything that makes a great rally photo: Action, atmosphere and fans are composed into a work of art. When the infamous Eifel weather hit the stages on Saturday, these fans simply converted an Opel-branded rain poncho into a two-man tent. With this photo Andreas Dietrich won the special spice “most inventive image”. Federico Acosta captured the night action at the start of the proWIN Hilgerath stage in a very special way - with a pan shot and an exposure time of four seconds.

 



A look at the entry list for the ADAC Eifel Rallye Festival (July 18th/20th, 2019) also reveals a gradual change in the character of the vehicles taking part. In recent years, Group B cars have not featured much in live demonstrations. Their value is constantly increasing and the supply of spare parts for them is becoming more and more difficult. Therefore, the owners often park these cars and hold them as an investment and at least some of them can be seen in museums. For Festival fans, there is a big exception here in the Eifel since no fewer than thirty-three vehicles from the Group B era are registered.
