This Is What It’s Like To Sit Shotgun With Rallying Royalty In A Big Benz



Walter Röhrl drifting a Fiat 131 and various Porsches in huge mud-and-waterlogged power slides; Stig Blomqvist in a Ford RS500; Timo Salonen in a Alitalia Abarth; Sandro Munari signing autographs next to his Stratos; Ford Group B designer John Wheeler in his Evolution RS200; plus 145 other classic rally cars ranging from a Trabant to Pikes Peak Audis and pretty much everything in between… It’s not a wet dream for a fan of yesteryear’s rallying championships, but the Eifel Rallye Festival in rural western Germany, one of my favorite events of the season. Though the next edition is a ways away from now, it never hurts to reflect on the moments from the past that make us look forward to the next round.
