AARC/AART SEASON FINAL 2021 at HERBST-RALLYE DOBERSBERG:

The Herbst-Rally on October 23 did not only host the final round of the Austrian Rallye Challenge but was the perfect stage for the participants of the ALPE ADRIA RALLY CUP (AARC) and the ALPE ADRIA RALLY TROPHY (AART).

The overall victory went to Gerald Rigler and Jürgen Heigl who were dominant at this wonderful rally with their Ford Fiesta WRC, thereby taking the second place in the AART flying the Austrian flag.

Let’s do things in order first...

ALPE ADRIA RALLY TROPHY (AART – 4WD):

The trophy for all-wheel drive cars (AART) was won by the Italian team Alessandro Prosdocimo/Marsha Zanet in their Skoda Fabia R5. The popular Italian duo already took the first win in the AART at Rally Piancavallo. With the second place at Rally Carnia and the third position at Dobersberg they took the “GOLDEN JOCHEN” to ITALY.

Second place overall in the AART 2021 went to the local heroes at Herbst Rallye. “Schraubi” Gerald Rigler and Jürgen Heigl did receive the “SILVER JOCHEN” albeit scoring no points at Rally Piancavallo. Gerald Rigler took an overall podium in AART for the third time.

The „BRONZE JOCHEN“went to Markus and Sabine Steinbock on Hyundai i20 R5.

They were very happy about their performance at Dobersberg and took a podium position in AART for the second time.

AART – OVERALL CLASSIFICATION:
1st Place: Alessandro Prosdocimo/Marsha Zanet Skoda Fabia R5 104
2nd Place: Gerald Rigler/Jürgen Heigl Ford Fiesta R5 50
3rd Place: Markus Steinbock/Sabine Steinbock Hyundai i20 R5 43

ALPE ADRIA RALLY CUP (AARC – 2WD):

For the first time in the 12 year-history of AARC a team with a Historic car won the overall championship. The father-son duo Lukas and Helmut Schindelegger with their Ford Escort RS2000 showed enormous continuity and good speed all season long which was awarded with the „Alpe Adria Rally Cup Master“ title and the “GOLDEN JOCHEN” as well.

Second place was conquered by a Historic car too. Rally-Grandpa Kurt Jabornig, co-driven by Christine Scheiber, took the Peugeot 205 rally to the finish with some minor damage and did receive the “SILVER JOCHEN” for second place in the AARC 2021 at Dobersberg.

Third place overall went to Klaus Demuth and Johann Drapela with Renault Clio Ragnotti after a difficult season with only two starts and a retirement at Rally Piancavallo.
