The Eifel Rallye Festival 2014 was staged 24-26 July in the Eifel Mountains of Western Germany. A strong field of more than 160 rally machines from more than 30 manufacturers represented five decades of rallying history. The 3-day rally was held over eight special stages in and around the town of Daun, turning the volcanic Eifel region into the center of historic rally racing.
The 2014 running of the Eifel Rallye Festival offered spectators the rare chance to see the cars that made the history of rallying: from the two-stroke Saab and Trabant up to the wild Group B supercars from Audi, Lancia and others. This year’s festival once again featured legendary rallying ace Walter Rohrl as patron of the event, in addition to honoring Bjorn Waldegard, winner of the inaugural World Rally Championship for drivers in 1979, and Stig Blomqvist, winner of the 1984 World Rally Championship for drivers.
Similar to 2012 and 2013, photographer Julien Mahiels also documented the Eifel Rallye Festival 2014, offering the following excellent picture gallery that shows the varied field of entrants tackling the volcanic Eifel region of Germany. We split up Julien’s 239 pictures into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite images, all displayed in the full-width view of Sports Car Digest, while the second gallery can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all the photographs.
