Breslau Rally: Rally will be more International - new full Cross-Country class.









As the Frenchman Thierry Sabine in 1978 created the legendary "Dakar Rally" in Africa nobody could have guessed that this would be the cornerstone of a whole new kind of motorsport. Not only off-road motor sport was acceptable, the term "long-distance / marathonrally" was created.

The rally became a myth, found dozens of imitators and created entirely new industries, accounting for millions of turnover today. But being in Africa the rally was also far away, dangerous, long and especially: Very expensive.

"There must be a better way" thought some off-road enthusiasts from Germany under the leadership of Klaus Leihener (deceased 2013) and Franz Aigner - and they launched in 1995 the "Munich-Breslau"; in the middle of Europe, starting in Germany with marathon routes in Poland. Instead of desert and solitude there was forest and nature. Instead of threatening deep sand there were treacherous water crossings and deep mud holes.

At that time they started with only 35 cars, 20 motorcycles and 5 trucks, the rules were simple; one needed, for example, no racing license, but only a driver's licence. The costs were low. Anyone who wanted to could participate with a simple vehicle instead of expensive motor sport cars.

From the outset team spirit, togetherness and simple "adventure" stood in the foreground - not marketing, sponsorship or high prize money. The winner received honor and glory, a T-shirt and a commemorative plate.

From "The Adventure Rally of some mad off-roaders" became the largest licence-free amateur rally. The number of participants partly approached the "Dakar Rally". The start cities changed, after Munich followed Berlin, Dresden and the Polish city of Wroclaw, known in Germany as "Breslau" and as the only constant also became the namesake of the rally.

At the beginning the participants were almost exclusively German, but with time the rally was becoming increasingly international. Teams from France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Bulgaria, etc made the "German Rally" an "International Rally". And finally, it were the participants from the host country Poland, which dominated the rally and in the car class they would establish an incredible winning streak.

The combination of "Trophy" and "Rally" was unique. The participants developed a completely new vehicle category: The "Breslau-Car". Vehicles that came with both winches and a snail's pace to tackle the difficult terrain - and also drove at high-speed on forest tracks, through sand and meadows.

Over the years the rally has become more professional, the budget increased - and the organisers increased the difficulty. But times and people change. Laws and regulations change. From a country in transition Poland has become a stable and modern EU partner. The rally also found itself in transition and had to find its new path.

The former founder of the Rally retired as organiser, a new organizer took over. The new way was unclear, there were ups and downs. Finally in 2013 the third organiser took over the rally, a regular participant of the Breslau, a Breslau winner and a successful businessman: Alexander Kovatchev - to start this year with a large and experienced team.

The "Breslau" - this year from 12-19th July - has changed and moved with the times. One of these changes is that in addition to the "Extreme" class a fully-fledged "Cross Country" class has been launched.

Those who want to fight through the mud and extremely rough terrain will still be able to drive the "classic" Breslau. If you prefer speed and navigation, this will also now be available. Thus, the Breslau Rally is open for quick "FIA type race cars" as they are known from the "Dakar Rally" - but still remains true to its principles: To experience in the heart of Europe for a small budget exciting motor sports. Furthermore, "among friends", and still in a family-like atmosphere.

The fees are still low: For a fully week the bikes and ATV (1 person) start at 1,000 Euros, Cars and SSV (2 persons) from 2,000 Euros and Trucks from 2,100 (2 persons) to 2,500 euros (3 persons).
