Record turn out in Germany, says organisers.

The Rallye Deutschland attracted record crowds last weekend, according to the organisers.

Post-event it was reported that almost 270,000 people flocked to the rally around Trier from Thursday to Sunday, up 60,000 on the number that came to watch the event in 2007.

"We have been congratulated by everyone for a perfect event with a unique atmosphere and the highly impressive record crowd," said Hermann Tomczyk, ADAC's sport president.

"The effort of the many volunteers is also impressive. They have made a decisive contribution to make this ADAC Rallye Deutschland a success, even the weather has played along in a perfect way."

Despite the turn-out though, there won't be a Rallye Deutschland next season in thr WRC, as, like the Monte, the round is a victim of the new controversial rotation system, which means events will now take place once every two calendar years.

Rallye Deutschland is due to be included in the WRC next in 2010, with a provisional date pencilled in for August 22.

This was the seventh time Germany had hosted a round of the WRC, after joining the fold in 2002.
