ADAC 3 Städte Rallye gives place for the World Rally Championship

The FIA has today published the WRC calendar for 2023. Included for the first time is the Central European Rally, a WRC round in the heart of Europe.

The Central European Rally is scheduled for 26-29 October 2023 with a start in Prague, special stages in Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria and a finish in Passau. The event is organised by a European association of ADAC, Autoklub Česká and AMF. 

The ADAC 3 Cities Rally will therefore not take place in 2023 - we are making room for an international sporting event, which is intended to send a clear signal of cohesion between the nations. We are particularly pleased that Passau and the Bavarian Forest will be on the World Rally Championship calendar for the first time, alongside rally meccas such as Monte Carlo, Mexico or Finland. 

Further information can be found in the press release of the ADAC 
and in the coming weeks and months on the channels of the and ADAC Motorsport

Thriller of seconds in the rain at the 3 Städte Rallye

The most beautiful reports and publications of the 58th ADAC Knaus Tabbert 3 Städte Rallye

After 168.5 kilometres and 14 special stages in the Czech Republic, Austria and Lower Bavaria, a blink of an eye decided the title at the season finale of the German Rally Championship (DRM): Philip Geipel and co-driver Katrin Becker-Brugger crossed the finish ramp in Breitenberg (Passau district) 0.5 seconds ahead of the Bavarian duo Dominik Dinkel and Pirmin Winklhofer after a terrific chase. This meant second place in the 3-city ranking. And because defending champion Marijan Griebel with Tobias Braun only finished fifth, the new last-minute champions from ADAC Saxony were jubilant at the end with a one-point lead in the overall standings. Leading the way for the stage win at the 3 Städte Rallye was the Czech super talent Erik Cais (23), who is not rated in the DRM, who with his co-driver Igor Bacigál ended up 56.1 seconds ahead of Geipel/Becker-Brugger.

In total, this attracted over 148 journalists and photographers from all over Europe to Waldkirchen. In case anyone missed the unique spectacle or would like to reminisce: We have compiled a selection of the most beautiful reports and publications below:
