Audi Tradition will take part in this year's Eiffel Rally Festival (19-21 July) in Down, Germany, with legendary rally cars. From Ingolstadt they will win two winning cars: the Audi Sport quattro S1"Pikes Peak", which in 1987 Walter Rörl won the famous mountain in Colorado and the Audi Sport quattro, ruled in 1985 by Michel Muton, one of the fastest women of all times. At the traditional festival, about 40,000 people are expected.
The Frenchman attacked Peaks Peak for the first time in 1984 - but only then won in the Rally category. In 1985 Muton grabbed the big win with the 5-cylinder 400 hp car. For 11: 25.39 min the lady improves the then record on the rising track of more than 4000 m with 13 sec. An even bigger impression among the fans of the motorcycle left Walter Röhrl in 1987. In the last show of the Audi Sport quattro S1, the German ace managed to record 10: 47.85 minutes - becoming the first pilot under 11 minutes. This is a milestone both in the history of Roroll and Audi. During the"Eiffel Rally Festival"behind the wheel of the"runner"will stand the 2-time rally champion of Germany Harald Demout.
The Eiffel Rally Festival has for a number of years become one of the most important historical events in the world. The motto of this year's event is Pikes Peak. The 4,301-meter-high Mountain of Colorado, in 1916, hosts the planet's most famous mountain. That's why the cars that were able to record a victory there have a special status. At Down will start 170 cars, 50 of which - completely original.
