Rallying call for Eifel event



Organisers of the second Eifel Rallye Festival are aiming for the world’s biggest gathering of ex-works machinery, including Group B cars, for the event in Germany’s Eifel Mountains on July 26-28.

The 2012 event will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first East African Safari Rally. In addition to asphalt special stages around the host town of Daun, a new gravel stage is planned and owners of ex-Safari cars, along with period drivers, are invited.

Event founder Reinhard Klein said: “The new gravel stage will be a real highlight as well as the perfect setting for all the ex-Safari cars.”
