FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP

ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND 2018

ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND 2018

Info

Event History

  • First held in 1982, the rally was part of the European Championship.
  • It relocated to Trier in 2000 and joined WRC in 2002.
  • Citroën won every Rallye Deutschland since it entered WRC until 2014. Sébastien Loeb took nine victories, with one each for Sébastien Ogier and Dani Sordo until Hyundai’s Thierry Neuville topped the podium in 2014.

Challenge

  • Viewed as the most difficult of the end-of-season asphalt encounters.
  • Working efficiently with safety note crews, who drive the stages ahead of competitors, to have up-to-date information about road surface and weather.
  • Unpredictable weather in the hills makes tyre choice tricky.
  • Avoiding huge car-breaking kerb stones, known as hinkelsteins, in Baumholder.
  • Baumholder is slippery in the dry and treacherous in the wet.

Car Setup

  • Asphalt suspension – low settings which provide stability and improved balance.
  • Different road characteristics in the same group of stages mean set-up is often a compromise.
  • Hard compound rubber available for dry conditions, with soft option for wet or cold weather.
