The Rallye Deutschland has been in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) calendar since 2002 and has quickly gained a reputation for being the most challenging asphalt event of the year. It features a number of treacherous stages, where risks are such that safety crews drive the stages ahead of drivers to provide up-to-date information on conditions.

Then there are the famous Baumholder stages with its huge kerb stones, known as hinkelsteins. A collision with one of these is likely to mean an early exit from the event. But perhaps the biggest challenge of all is the technical one. Such is the difference between stages, that getting a perfect setup for each stage is all but possible, and even making the right tyre choice is hard in unpredictable weather conditions. Which altogether makes the Rallye Deutschland one of the most testing and most compelling events of the season.
