The leaves are dropping off the trees, and guys in orange jackets are gathering around random road junctions in the Eifel. It can mean only one thing…
… the Rally Köln Ahrweiler is about to begin!You’ll find a full schedule and spectator information sheet online here (in German).

The Nordschleife stage begins near Adenau, and looks like this:
Expect more photos and videos over the next couple of days. It’s a really great event, and a lot of people I know come to the Eifel *just* for this Rally.
(though, truth be told, the weather is warming up and I think we might get some tourist laps of the Nordschleife on Sunday too!)
