Nothing’s set in stone yet but Rally Germany is looking for a new home in 2022.
What this all means is that the venue for next year’s Rally Germany is up in the air, and the people who organize WRC just picked up another rally series—World RX—that already races at the Green Hell. Put this together with a statement cited by Bridge To Gantry from the organization that says “the focus of the German World Championship is to shift in the direction of the Nürburgring in the future,” and you start to see the bigger picture here.
It’s unclear which track layout the WRC would use seeing as the Nurburgring has several. Most race fans are familiar with the Nordschleife, though World RX currently competes ’round the Müllenbachschleife. It features a mix of asphalt and dirt, though WRC is usually interested in the latter. Germany’s Rally Magazinsays a test at the Nordschleife is possible, so there’s at least hope.
So, assuming this vaccination business all goes off without a hitch, we can probably look forward to some high-strung rally cars blazing around the Green Hell, possibly as soon as 2022. Hopefully, it all adds up. You already know The Drive will be there if it happens.
