From 09th to 18th June, Rüsselsheim, the home of Opel, was the venue of the 57th ‘Hessentag’.  The 10-day event attracted a total of 1.4 million visitors that could view – inter alia – the Opel plant in Rüsselsheim. One of the other Hessentag highlights was the motor-racing involvement of Opel: Opel Motorsport.   

At the Opel Motorsport area, the visitors were informed on the current motor-racing vehicles of the brand. Exposed were racing cars such as the Opel Astra TCR, the Opel ADAM rally-cup vehicle and the Opel ADAM R2 competing in the European Rally Championship. Furthermore, the countless visitors were offered the opportunity to complete a lap on a handling circuit with an Opel Corsa OPC.

Opel Motorsport stands for dynamics, competitive spirit and emotions around the brand with the thunderbolt – and has been doing so since 1899! Currently, Opel also successfully is competing in European motor sport and relies on the RAVENOL high-performance lubricants while doing so. For the second consecutive time, Opel works drivers secured the Rally Junior European Championship with the currently most successful rally car in its class – the Opel ADAM R2.
