New in the regulations: class for historic rally cars

As a rally organizer, we always try to respond to the wishes of our participants and to take current developments in the scene into account.

On the one hand, we have to acknowledge that it is becoming increasingly difficult to prepare current vehicle models for events like ours. On the other hand, there are a number of off-road enthusiasts whose rally cars from past years are no longer competitive in the vehicle classes at current events. But exactly these vehicles are the cars that have made the myth of the “marathon rally” real for decades – the dream of adventure, of experiencing the limits of man and material up close.

Even if there will not (yet) be an “ElChott-Classic” in the future, we make it possible to take part in our events with these vehicles in a specially created class.

For this purpose, the class “CH – cars historical” was introduced in the regulations with immediate effect.

There are two basic requirements for registration in this class:

  • The production date of the vehicle must be before 01/01/1990.
  • The main components of the vehicle, such as the engine, turbocharger, transmission, axles and chassis (springs/dampers), including the permissible technical modifications, must have been available in identical construction before January 1st, 1990. In case of doubt, especially in the case of special conversions, the proof must be provided by the team.

At our events “Rallye ElChott” and “Rallye-Trail Germany”, the class CH will start together with all other 4×4 vehicles. On very long special stages or special stages that are particularly demanding due to the nature of the terrain different or shortened routes will be driven.

All details on technically permissible changes, safety regulations and mandatory and emergency equipment can be found in the regulations.

In addition to the described change in the regulations, we would like to point out that in addition to vehicles with conventional combustion engines, vehicles with alternative drives (hybrid / battery-electric / fuel cell) will also be expressly permitted in the vehicle classes CS, T2 and T1 from 2022, provided they meet all other requirements of the respective vehicle class.

Pre-tour for El Chott 2022 – time is running !

The pre-tour for the El Chott 2022 will take place from March 5th to 19th.

With 3 vehicles we drive all the planned daily stages. Our records will create the basis for all road books for the 2022 rally.

In addition to the actual special stages and the associated transfers, we are of course also recording all the transfer routes for the service teams.

As a special highlight for 2022, we have planned again a stage south of El Borma after 8 years. Keep your fingers crossed that we will get the permission for this special stage in the fascinating dune landscape in the extremely south of Tunisia.

If someone would like to accompany us on our pre-tour in the above-mentioned period, we can make this possible under the following conditions: You are fully vaccinated against covid-19 and you are ready to subordinate yourself in our “working everyday” in terms of route selection, daily travel times and places to stay.

In a difficult year …

… despite the pandemic, in addition to many business activities, we also held two successful motorsport events.

Thanks to good organization and compliance with all hygiene measures, there was no covid-19 infection among the 150 participants also at the 10-day El Chott rally in Tunisia.
For that we would like to especially thank all teams. Our business partners and sponsors we thank for the good cooperation and the many ORGA employees and of course all friends for their great commitment and support.

For 2022, we would like to see a little more normality again, so that we can organize our events without restrictions as possible.
