Walter Röhrl celebrates his birthday: memories of a living legend of motorsport
For most people, he is one of the best racing drivers in the world: Walter Röhrl, two-time World Rally Champion, four-time winner of the Rally Monte Carlo and member of the FIA Hall of Fame – a complete listing of all his honors and racing successes would go beyond the scope of this article. On March 7, 2022, Röhrl turned an incredible 75 years old. Time to shift down a gear, move to the right lane and look for a rest stop? Not at all.
Karsten Arndt and Röhrl’s longtime co-driver Christian Geistdörfer paint a multifaceted and exciting picture of the world-class driver.
Röhrl is still active as a brand ambassador for Porsche, takes part in rallies, and enjoys driving-even if it’s no longer about chasing the last tenth of a second. On the occasion of his anniversary, many companions, fellow racers, and competitors recall their time together in this book. Among others, Ari Vatanen, Hans-Joachim Stuck and of course his friend and congenial co-driver Christian Geistdörfer have their say. For fans of the sports legend, this limited special edition of the book has been hand-signed by Walter Röhrl!
