The asphalt showcase first ran in 1969 and attracts huge numbers of spectators thanks in part to its running over the Austrian Bank Holiday weekend, which has resulted in the unique Sunday to Tuesday schedule for 2015. Based in Freistadt, 40 kilometres north of Linz in Upper Austria, the stages in the spectacular Mühlviertel region use fast, undulating country roads, with ice and snow increasing the challenge. The last two editions of the Jännerrallye have been decided by final-stage showdowns with ex-Formula One racer Robert Kubica famously coming out on top in 2014 for his first major international rally win.
