For Team Ihle Motorsport, it's off to Spain next week. From October 20 to 23, 2022, the Rally RACC Catalunya will take place on the beautiful Costa Daurada.

The Rally Spain was first held in 1957 and has been part of the WRC calendar since 1991. Many connoisseurs know that a special feature of the rally was its mixed surface. Until 2021, drivers had to drive the first day on gravel - the second and third days on asphalt. This year, the participants will drive exclusively on solid ground. The fast and smooth asphalt in the mountains of the Costa Daurada allows the drivers to set fast times, but it also requires excellent driving skills, especially in the corners.

Ihle Motorsport will be driving the VW Golf 16V Kleint.
You can follow the rally live on or on RedBull TV.

A rally of nostalgia

A rally without timekeeping and scoring? That may sound strange at first, but that is precisely one of the many special features of the Alsace Rally Festival. At this rally, the focus is not on the competition, but on the legendary cars and their stories. These are originals, replicas and other vehicles that have written national and international rally history.
Except for small details and components concerning the safety of the drivers, modifications to the vehicles are not allowed.
Spectators can marvel at the cars on various demo tracks from 25 to 27 August 2022. There will also be an autograph session.
Team Ihle Motorsport will travel to the event with an Audi 200 and a VW Golf Bimotor.
