„A world championship round here in the Bavarian Forest and in the district of Freyung‐Grafenau also gives us the opportunity to show our region from its most beautiful side worldwide‟, Vaterl points out. This year, the Knaus Tabbert team can experience motorsport up close in the World Cup Fan Zone named after their company. 
ADAC Sport President Dr. Gerd Ennser thanks Knaus Tabbert AG for the cooperation. „Knaus Tabbert AG was one of the big helpers at the birth of the 3 STÄDTE RALLYE here in the border triangle. The fact, that this internationally successful showcase company is now joining us on the road to the world championship underlines, on the one hand our long‐standing partnership and on the other hand shows, that we have great support and backing for our project not only from politics, but also from business. The Knaus Tabbert special stage is one of the highlights of this WRC round through Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, both in terms of the landscape and the route.”
