He wanted to be a good skier, but fortunately his path led him to rallying. It was a Fiat 850 Coupé, in which he started in his first rally in 1968 alongside with Herbert Maracek, who not only discovered Rohrls talent, but also was a close friend. It was the beginning of a stunning career full of ups and downs. His constant urge for perfectionism took the man from Regensburg from one victory to another. With cars from Ford, Opel, Lancia and Audi Rohrl could celebrate numerous successes together with his co-drivers Jochen Berger and Christian Geistdörfer. He is a four-time Rally Monte Carlo winner and was able to capture the world title in 1980 and 1982. He tamed the Audi S1, conquered Pikes Peak and has been triumphant on the circuit as well. Nobody else sacrificed himself as unconditionally to the fight for seconds and the quest for racing lines as he did. Even after he has retired from professional rallying, he remained loyal to his sport and still takes part in historical rally events.
This DVD presents the exceptional carreer of Walter Rohrl with historical recordings, interviews with his co-pilotes and fellow teammembers and reports about his participation in historical rally-meetings. Look forward to previously unpublished material and a personal insight in three decades of rallysport.
