The Rally Germany is to return part of the calendar of the World Rally Championship (WRC) in 2022. That is the declared aim of the organizing ADAC. When planning the future of the German WRC race, however, the association has to look for a new sporting organizer.

It remains to be seen whether the Rally Germany will run in the south-west in the future
The ADAC explained this when asked by ‘Motorsport-Total.com’ and thus confirmed a report by the ‘Saarländischer Rundfunk’.
“We are currently working on concepts for the future of the event and will examine in the coming months whether and in what form the Rallye Deutschland could be held as a World Cup run in 2022 and beyond,” says an ADAC spokesman.
The retirement of the ADAC Saarland as a sporting organizer does not have to mean that the Rally Germany will no longer take place in the familiar region in southwest Germany. Up to and including 2016, the ADAC Mittelrhein was the sporting organizer of the event, which was then based in Trier.

Even then, in addition to the classic special stages in the vineyards of the Moselle and on the “Panzerplatte” at the Baumholder military training area, the route of the German World Cup was also part of the route on Saarland roads.
This year, for the first time since 2009, the Rally Germany is not part of the World Rally Championship as part of the calendar rotation initiated by the FIA. In 2020 it was canceled due to the restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
