On this page we inform you about current historicdrive rallies. In addition we also provide information on other rallies in NRW and add information as far as it is available.
This classic car rally is organized once a year in cooperation with the Altstädter Köln 1922 e.V. and the Köln Narren-Zunft from 1880 e.V. (Cologne Fools Guild from 1880 e.V.). The summer trip is open for teams of all carnival societies and clubs.
In addition to the carnival commitment of the participants, the prerequisite for participation is an oldtimer or youngtimer that is 30 years or older. Over the past 14 years, the rally has become increasingly popular among carnivalists. In 2018, 150 teams from 23 carnival societies applied for 90 starting places. The one-day event leads the teams with their valuable vehicles on a distance of approx. 190 km from the heart of Cologne, the old town in the direction of the Ahr valley and ends in the afternoon again at the horse race-course in Cologne Wiedenpech. On the way several special tests demand spirit and skills of the participants.
