Regulations

Registered vehicles

Authorized vehicles at the start must be either exclusive sports, rally or GT vehicles produced from 1989 until today. Limousines are not eligible. The selection committee reserves the right to refuse vehicles at the start.

The participants have to pay attention to the general condition of their car, especially tires, lights, battery and belt attachment (if required by law). Furthermore, the organization recommends carrying a fire extinguisher and a triangle warning kit on board.

Replacing a participant’s car without prior approval by the organization is not permitted.

The maximum allowable noise level while driving on the Nordschleife is 98 decibel (A).

Road test

The program includes two stages with a total rally stage of about 400 km. Participants must follow the route of the road book. Requirements for speed or average speed are NOT mentioned. Participants have to show their competition sheets at various checkpoints, whose location are kept secret. We would like to point out that the rally will take place on open public roads and that the participants are therefore required to strictly comply with German road traffic regulations. Safety information is included in the road book, which the participants will receive.

Time trial

Within the event a time trial is included. After a few laps the course director will show a green flag indicating the beginning of the connection stage and the time trial stage. The participants then complete at least 3 rounds for which their time is measured. The first round serves as a reference time. The next two will be timed. The lower the total deviation of lap times, the higher the score.

A helmet is required during the time trial. One or two people per car are allowed. The minimum age for the passenger is 16. Public access to the race track is not allowed.

Classification

The overall classification is drawn up by taking into account the penalties for missing checkpoints, and the connection stage to the time trial stage. For the classification the speed nor the average speed, nor the timing is critical.

As the rally is held as a social gathering, no complaints will be considered.

Rally Germania 2012 is an event that aims to bring owners of collector vehicles together without compromising the competitive aspect.

Towing Service

In case there is a damage to your car which cannot be resolved by mechanics onsite, we offer a towing service which is included in the entry fee. The service will transport the stranded vehicle to a safe place, which is determined by the owner (garage, car park, etc.) within a maximum radius of 100 km from the location the vehicle got stranded.

Participants have the opportunity to entrust their luggage to the organization transporting the luggage to the different stops and hotels.
