The FIA World Rally Championship will return to Germany again in 2020. The world's top rallying elite will contest the ADAC Rallye Deutschland in the Saarland and surrounding area from 15th to 18th October next year. The German round of the WRC will take place now in the autumn for the first time ever, bringing it closer to the season finale. If experience is anything to go by, the 2020 ADAC Rallye Deutschland, the twelfth of a total of 14 world championship rounds, will mark the start of a very exciting sprint to the finish in the title fight for the WRC stars.
Hermann Tomczyk, ADAC Sports President: "We are delighted that a round of the World Rally Championship will take place in Germany again in 2020. Once again this August, more than 220,000 fans followed the rally, and it is terrific to know that the FIA recognises and values our fan-friendly concept and the dedicated work of our many volunteers. The addition of new venues to the WRC calendar has brought about this move to the autumn, which in sporting terms, will certainly make the ADAC Rallye Deutschland even more exciting. At any rate, the fans can once again look forward to seeing plenty of high-calibre rally action, very varied special stages and many other highlights in the 2020 ADAC Rallye Deutschland."
ADAC Rallye Deutschland has featured as a round of the FIA World Rally Championship since 2002. Year upon year, this big sporting event has attracted an enthusiastic audience from all over Europe due to its central location. In 2019, some 222,100 spectators enjoyed the spectacle of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland with top-class racing that remained exciting to the very end.
