    Silhouette / DTM Rally

    Just some video I ran across. Anyone know anything about this race? Nice to see a bunch of silhouette and DTM type vehicles on the road engaged in some sort of road rally.

     

     


    Re: Silhouette / DTM Rally

    Truly great, there is a huge variety of cars and classes competing in European hillclimb challenges. Love the sport as there are no mistakes allowed. Unfortunately resulting in a series of fatalities...

    Search on youtube, there are quite a few stunning videos available.


    Re: Silhouette / DTM Rally

    I'd like to know what kind of engine was in the E30 BMW @ 1:50. It sounded sinister.

    And what kind of car is shown in the screen freeze and directly after the BMW. The one with quad exhausts.

     I think that's a Renault R5 variant (Called "Le Car" here in the USA), but not sure.

    Re: Silhouette / DTM Rally

    Very interesting cars indeed:

    The M3 at 1:50 min seems to be a former DTM car with regular four cylinder engine. Those cars featured individual throttle bodies for each cylinder and are located in a common airbox, hence the sound.

    The Alfa 156 at around 2:50 min is a former DTM/ITC car with V6 engine driven by, if I remember correctly, an Italian participant.

    The following car is a PRC TR-V, built by Pedrazza racing cars in Austria, for the hillclimb championship with Georg Pacher. If the sources are correct, it uses a modified Hayabusa engine in the rear.

    Quite few of the cars used in Hillclimb have been severely modified or built from scratch as the demands of this championship are very different from regular rally or closed-circuit concepts. The runs are comparatively short each time, with circuits spread all over Germany, Austria, Northern Italy and Switzerland. Held in different classes, almost anything goes from former touring cars over monopostos to prototypes and specifically-built silhouette racers.
