A potential new date for the second edition of CER

The organizers of Central European Rally announced that they will request a new date for their event of 2024 due to organizing reasons.

More specifically, the second edition of Central European Rally is set to be held on October 17-20, two weeks earlier than its original date. In addition to that, the location of the service park will be new as it will move from the Messepark Kohlbruck in Passau to Rottaler Bäderdreieck. The rally of Central Europe is the only WRC event which is hosted by three different countries (Austria, Germany and Czech Republic). The ceremonial start will be held in Prague and there will a superspecial stage on Thursday there. The real action will begin in Czech Republic on Friday while the crews will compete in the Lower Bavarian districts of Freyung-Grafenau and Passau in the Upper Austrian regions of Mühlviertel and Innviertel on the final two days of the event. 

"For organizational reasons, the CER will not be held on the originally scheduled All Saints’ Day weekend", the statement of the organizers said. 

"Since the Dreiländerhalle in Passau, which was used as the service park last year, was already booked up for other events for the new dates, the CER organisational team had to look for an alternative location that had areas that were large enough. 

"They found what they were looking for in Bad Griesbach – the service park will set up camp on the site of one of the biggest Bavarian fairs in the Karpfham district, where the ADAC 3-Städte-Rallye was based up until 2017 as part of the German Rally Championship".
