Originally a first-year 1500cc Beetle, he has bored the engine out to 1600cc, and he rallies it in the Historic Rallye Cup in Germany. His overall results have been:

2003: 3rd Overall

2004: 5th Overall

2005: 3rd Overall

2006: 13th Overall

2010: 3rd Overall

Rolf had an "interesting" time over the weekend of 4th/5th March 2006:

SS1: Crashed into the chicane because right wheels hit snow while braking

SS3: Span twice on damned ice

SS4: Touched hard on a snow-wall, which was rather hard

SS6: (in darkness, snowing again) gave the Mitusbishis and BMWs in front and behind me about 20 seconds..... conditions were good for air-coolers......

But now I have a lot of work to get "Karlchen" ready till 1st April (2nd run).

Cross your fingers please........
