Walter Röhrl to return to Northern Ireland for “Titanic Deja Vu Ulster”

Walter Röhrl, the German driver voted ‘Rally Driver of the Millennium’ and called ‘A Genius on Wheels’ by Niki Lauda, will return to the scene of his dominant win in the 1984 Ulster International Rally. The occasion is TITANIC DÉJÀ VU ULSTER, another of Déjà Vu Motorsport’s popular rally reunions, in aid of charity, which have already raised £70,000.00.

It’s thirty-four years since Walter and his co-driver Christian Geistdörfer blasted their Group B Audi Quattro S4 over the Antrim, Down and Fermanagh stages to obliterate the opposition. Those who witnessed their performance rate it as one of the greatest drives in Irish rallying history. Walter and Christian defeated Russell Brookes, Jimmy McRae and Bertie Fisher by over four minutes.
The Porsche contracted driver will return to Ulster to head a cavalcade of historic rally cars over famous Antrim stages such as Glen Dunn and Torr Head. He will be joined by many of his contemporaries and a host of other rally stars at a gala dinner in Titanic Belfast on Saturday, 1 st September.
“I’ll never forget co-driving Walter in my Historic Porsche 911 on the 1994 RAC Britannia Rally, so I’m delighted that he has accepted our invitation to headline our event”, said Dr. Beatty Crawford, joint organiser with Alan (Plum) Tyndall in Déjà Vu Motorsport.
