Walter Röhrl is the only German rally World Champion and has been a symbol for rally sport for decades, even after the end of his professional career. The “Genius on Wheels” (Niki Lauda) drove his way to the World Champion title in 1980 and 1982, and won the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally four times in different models as well as a total of 14 World Championship races. Awarded the most diverse range of prizes ever in motor sports, Walter Röhrl is a member of the Hall of Fame of German Sport. Today, he works as a representative and test driver for Porsche.
STUDIO IGNATOV visited the 73-year-old at his home and accompanied the rally legend one day long to get a glimpse of his private car and trophy collections for a portrait spread, which we present you here exclusively on GoSee. Another fun fact: The legendary ‘Memoirs’ or autobiography of the former World Champion from 2002 has just been reissued in an extended and revised edition for € 59.90 and is now available via the rally shop.
