Colin McRae Rally and DiRT Wiki

A location within DiRT Rally, with stages over two routes near the town of Baumholder, Germany.

Both routes make use of the military training grounds, and include many of the infamous Hinkelsteins - stones originally intended to ensure tanks stay on the roads serve a very similar purpose for rally cars.




Direction Long Sprint 1 Sprint 2
Forwards Oberstein Waldaufstieg Kreuzungsring
Reverse Frauenberg Waldabstieg Kreuzungsring Reverse

Winds up a steep, switchback road out of the forest, into the open military training grounds. Right at the mid-point, has a pair of hay-bale chicanes, then ending with long, fast straights around the conspicuous hot-air balloon, and the famous "Gina" jump.


Direction Long Sprint 1 Sprint 2
Forwards Hammerstein Verbundsring Flugzeugring
Reverse Ruschberg Verbundsring Reverse Flugzeugring Reverse

Starts with repeated tight corners joined by short straights, reaching a long, crowd lined section at the mid-point. Straights become longer, then a series of very tight corners in quick succession around the fighter plane giving the second half of the stage its name. Then even longer straights joining sharp corners towards the end of the stage.

Oberstein uses a part in the middle of Panzerplatte Long (SS13+16 in 2015). Hammerstein uses roads in the area around the end of that stage.
