We’re back!!!

The S2000 has its engine back and we are back in the 4-wheel-drive game! Last weekend Saarland-Pfalz Rallye around St. Wendel took place. As Saarland-born for me this is certainly one of each season’s highlights, but the course of the season so far dampened our anticipation – too much shit happened this year and especially

Finish! …with obstacles

FInally, after quite a while we saw the finish line! Though having to deal with a bunch of incidents even at Rallye Erzgebirge we were able to park our car at parc fermé in the end. Friday went quite optimal for us. Despite a non-perfect start we managed to stay the night in P10 overall

Retirements don’t stop…

Although we put a lot of effort into, this season won’t really kick off properly… Yesterday, for Thomas and me Rallye Lavanttal ended with a loud bang (once again to early. After two retirements in Kempenich (front differential) and at Rebenland (alternator) we have to close the chapter Lavanttal Rallye once again without making it

Frustration at DRC prelude

Rallye Kempenich this weekend was planned as first rollout after the big winter revision at the Skoda and meanwhile the last test before the kickoff of Mitropa Rally Cup at Rebenland Rallye in Austria. The one and only positive aspect of this plan, but enough of the good news for the weekend. From the first

Three starts – four victories

Last weekend I started together with Christopher Gerhard on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X at Welfen-Winter-Rallye in the  Motorsportarena Oschersleben.

Season kickoff!

the first kilometers of the year are done and dusted and the season finally starts. Last week, I was granted the opportunity to do about 110 kilometers of testing in the Ford Fiesta Rally2 in the very North of Lapland on ice and snow together with Fabio Schwarz, son of the ultimate German winner of

Welcome 2022!

And there it is the fabulous 2022, in which so many put hope for massive improvements. In this sense I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! One thing upfront: I as well have similar hopes myself, but how the year will evolve is rather in my own hands than in the general

Second overall – for the fifth time…

Rallye Hessisches Bergland last weekend took Thomas and me as close to the overall victory as never before. On the one hand it is really satisfying to see, where our current speed brought us after this season, on the other hand it is simply frustrating that the first overall victory in the S2000 didn’t work

Bad News – Good News!

A phone call this morning with bad news: Due to a sudden illness, Marvin has to cancel Sachsen Rallye which was planned for the upcoming weekend. As what we do is not undangerous, safety is absolutely the first priority. For rallying you need both, physical and mental health, so there is only one right decision

Pushing the Limit at the German Border

The second weekend in October took the German rally scene – so also me meanwile for the fifth time – to the proximity of the Austrian border in Freyung. For Thomas and me, 3 Städte Rallye formed the end of our engagement in the German Rally Championship this year as Thomas will not participate in the
