Rallyesprint Rosenhof 2018
Once a year the tiny town of Grube in the north of Germany hosts an amateur Rally event, the so-called Rallyesprint Rosenhof.
The name comes from the “Gut Rosenhof”, an Estate on which most of the rally takes place and which is also home to the Paddock.
The rally, which lasts for one day and is a mix of tarmac and gravel, features various different cars, all of which are driven by private individuals.
No team has the manufacturer’s support behind it.
Attending the event for the second time I set up on the estate, in order to get more than a brief glimpse at the car’s speeding by.
The following is a selection of photos from the event, I’ll put a link to a CarThrottle-post with all photos at the bottom.
My first location was at the end of the estate’s main driveway, a long cobblestone road that has been around for hundreds of years, which the cars were speeding down before having to take a sharp 90° left turn onto concrete.
Due to weeks without rain a lot of dust had settled on the cobblestones, meaning each passing car was followed by a huge cloud of dust being sent towards the spectators (and my camera).
Eventually an BMW E36 3-series misjudged its speed and hit the huge tree-trunks that served as the barrier towards the spectators, moving them about a meter towards the crowd and leading to the area being cleared of any spectators fearing another impact.
Not quite liking where I had been moved to I went halfway across the estate, to get some pictures of the cars making their way along a bit of gravel.
