3-location concept for 3-Städte-Rally

2019 Freyung, 2020 Passau, 2021 Straubing

Subject to change without notice. Date 19.03.2019

The new concept of the ADAC Südbayern is providing for three locations in Eastern Bavaria for the 3-Städte-Rally, which change annually. "With this we want to offer the drivers and fans more variety - and on the other hand to minimize the burden for the communities and residents", Fritz Schadeck explains the decision of the board. "It makes a difference whether we ask for support every three years or whether we are on our doorstep every twelve months. Thus, the 56th ADAC 3-Städte-Rally on 18/19 October 2019 will be the first time the tents set up in the district of Freyung-Grafenau. The rally promises spectacular new tracks and a lot of variety for drivers, co-drivers and fans. A spectator circuit is also planned, the service park and the rally centre will be in the district town of Freyung. Under the direction of District Administrator Sebastian Gruber, the plans were presented to the affected communities and towns. "We see the 3-cities rally as an exciting opportunity to present our region as part of the season finale of the German championship," emphasises Gruber. This event, with over 400 overnight stays over several days by teams and officials as well as thousands of day guests, is also an interesting economic factor. For 2020, the ADAC Südbayern is again planning the Rottaler Bäderdreick around Bad Griesbach in the district of Passau. And in 2021 it will be back in Straubing.

The sporty part of the classic, lovingly called by his fans 3-Städte leads over twelve special stages (SS) with a total length of 150 kilometres. The start will be on Friday from 14:45 hrs on the service area in Freyung.

After the overnight break the Saturday stage starts at 9:00 hrs. The spectator points at the special stages are agreed with the authorities and neighbours.

From 15:30 hrs the first teams will cross the finish ramp in Freyung. The finish ramp is located directly on the town square.

The award ceremony of the ADAC 3-Staedte Rally will then take place at 20:00 hrs. This is immediately followed by the annual award ceremony of the German Rally Championship, the ADAC Rally Masters and the ADAC OPEL Rally Cups.

Thursday, October 17, 2019

More Information on ADAC Motorsport / Deutsche Rallyemeisterschaft

Is this rally authorised?


The ADAC 3-St-Staedte-Rally is a automobile rally, which is held in the form of a competition on best time on closed off tracks. The road closures and the implementation of the event are approved by the responsible Landsratamt in accordance with §29 StVO and after consultation with the so-called participants. In addition, the event must be approved by the German Motorsport Association (Deutscher Motorsportbund) and the prescribed safety measures must be implemented by tested track safety managers and rally leaders. On public and unblocked routes the rally participants must behave fully and completely in accordance with the road traffic regulations.

The event is insured with the Jühe Racing Policy / Allianz to cover liability against third parties (e.g. residents and property owners on the closed routes). Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions: Christian Götzenberger - Phone 089 5195 116 or E-Mail

Is there information for residents?


All residents will be informed by the organiser, the ADAC Südbayern. These include in particular road closures and their closure periods, special regulations for the entry and exit of properties, warning notices on danger points and much more.

Für Fragen stehen wir natürlich gerne zur Verfügung: Christian Götzenberger - Telefon 089 5195 116 oder E-Mail

Do the participants know the special stages?


The regulations of the German Rally Championship stipulate that participants are not allowed to visit the evaluation tests (tracks closed during the rally) in the run-up to the event. This serves the protection of residents and also the equality of competition for teams travelling far away. Only shortly before the rally (on Thursday, 17 October and Friday, 18 October) will the teams be allowed to run the later stages twice according to the instructions of the rally management. Here the StVO applies and it is to be taken special consideration of the residents.

Where can I get a rally magazine before the rally?


Since the evaluation tests will not be published in the run-up to the event, we can only start selling the programmes on Thursday evening in the ADAC Rallye Centre.
The rally magazine costs 4 Euro and supports the organizer - Thank you!

Hint: Here on this website the spectator points are already published a few weeks before the rally.

Can anyone take part in the 3-Staedte-Rally?


Who wants to participate in the 3-St-Staedte-Rally must have in principle an international license, which is issued by the German Motorsport Federation (DMSB) or the highest motorsport authorities abroad only after appropriate qualification.
Further information is also available at DMSB.

How much does it cost to enter the special stages/spectator points?


Admission to the special stages costs 10 Euro per day, 15 Euro for both rally days.

Unfortunately, the costs for such a big event with all the increasing requirements of the licensing authorities regarding security concept, parking spaces, toilets, waste disposal, insurance, etc. cannot be covered by entry fees of the teams or sponsorship income.
The entrance fees are kept as low as possible and should make the popular rally sport possible in Eastern Bavaria.

Thanks in advance for your support

Many thanks to...

...all helping people, cooperation partners, sponsors, residents, municipalities, authorities, visitors and all, who make possible the big season final at the ADAC 3-Staedte-Rally with their enthusiasm or tolerance for rallying!
