The asphalt showcase first ran in 1969 and attracted 100,000 spectators when it hosted the 2013 ERC season-opener. Based in Freistadt, 40 kilometres north of Linz in Upper Austria, the stages in the spectacular Mühlviertel region use fast, undulating country roads, with ice and snow increasing the challenge. As well as counting as the first event of the 12-round ERC schedule and the first opportunity for drivers to chase ERC Ice Master points, the rally opens the Austrian and Czech national championship seasons. Free Practice and a Qualifying Stage will help to determine the starting order among the priority drivers.
