From the Geneva Motor Show to the rallye track: the new “Car of the Year” is taking part in the international Rallye Monte Carlo for vehicles with alternative propulsion systems for the first time. Three teams from Belgium, France, Switzerland, Slovenia and Germany are competing in the “énergies nouvelles” category from March 22-25.
The goal is to cover a predetermined distance at a speed that remains as consistent as possible and with minimal fuel consumption.
The German team has no less than the four-time Monte winner Christian Geistdörfer on board to reach this goal. He knows the rallye world inside out. After all, he won the world championships in 1982 in an Opel Ascona 400 sitting next to the “living legend” Walter Röhrl. Axel Kahl will report live from the cockpit during the competition. The established blogger will keep us posted with updates. And the fan community can stay up to speed on Facebook and Twitter.
