Rallye Deutschland revamped

New look for Rallye Deutschland as practically all stages are modified for 2012

Rallye Deutschland will mark the tenth anniversary of its first WRC event with 'numerous innovations' for the 2012 edition, it has been confirmed.

The changes will see all the special stages, bar the Circus Maximus Power Stage, modified and there will also be two completely new tests. In total there will be 15 stages this year, with the final day spiced up with two runs through a long 31 kilometre test, with no service in between, before the short event ending super special in Trier.

The shakedown also shifts to a new site, while the Arena Panzerplatte special stage has been re-designed to include new sections where spectators can watch the cars for longer than ever before.

“Numerous new and attractive spectator areas have been created along the revamped special stages,” organisers added. “The new itinerary also affords even more parking facilities and even shorter walks from parking to the spectator areas.

“The new spectator areas and stage passages allow viewers even more time to watch the rally cars.”

“I am so glad for all our rally fans that we were able to find solutions to make the ADAC Rallye Deutschland ever more exciting and better,” added ADAC Rallye Deutschland Clerk of the Course Armin Kohl. “Based on our proven itinerary and organisation concept we laid excellent groundwork to offer the fans, drivers and officials the sort of great event they have come to appreciate in the years before.”

Rallye Deutschland, the ninth round in the 2012 FIA World Rally Championships, will run from August 23-26, with Sebastien Loeb keen to return to the top step of the podium, after a puncture ended his run of eight straight wins last year allowing arch rival and then Citroen team-mate, Sebastien Ogier through to take 'gold' in the DS3 WRC.

Im sure this will get a few disagree clicks but I dont think Loeb will win it this year either, I have a feeling that the new and seemingly complete Jari Matti will be hungry to take his first WRC Asphalt Victory there With any luck I think he will slowly manage to eek out a few seconds here and there and maybe win by perhaps 8 or 10 seconds in the end. This would be very exciting for the sport, I also think Petter will go very well there and will probably get on the Podium
