Another long delayed trip report from me! For many years I'd talked about going to the Ring in November and watching the Rally Köln-Ahrweiler. My previous plans were scuppered by Covid, so 2022 was the year. The rally has been held since 1971, the traditional starting point for many years was the town of Mayschoß, which is about 20 miles north of Nürburg, hence the rally has always used some of the roads local to Nürburg, including sections of the Nordschleife, driven in the opposite direction! Following the terrible floods of 2021, which badly affected Mayschoß, the event had a new starting point and base at the Nürburgring pits. I flew into Düsseldorf with Paul, where we met up with Stefan, who had flown in from Stockholm, we hired a car and drove to the Ring. We arrived in town on Friday afternoon and headed up to the circuit to see the start of the rally, there was a stage held in the dark, right next to the new circuit. Enough text, lots of pics to follow! Saturday morning, we awoke to perfect weather A fantastic mix of rally cars for us to enjoy, the main event is open to both modern and classics, but there is also a classic 'demonstration' class as well. The Ring Mini (or at least, one of them) 4 wheel drive, Honda powered Stefan was happy to see this Saab 900 Turbo Interesting chase car was this Saab 9-7X, rarely seen in Europe, they were produced in Ohio, USA, built on the same platform as the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, from a time when GM owned Saab.
