An annual, one-day rally-event in the north of Germany, taking place almost exclusively on the property of the “Gut Rosenhof”, an estate owned by Mr. Kölle, one of the participants.

This Skoda was the only car in the field sold by the manufacturer as a rally car, opposed to all the others who were converted from normal roadcars.
