* Hy-Speed Team ended in minus points for being late (100 penalty points per minute). That's a pity as they were doing great. But being back in time is an important factor in this game.

Congrats to all participants!

Thank you for your enthousiastic participating. Hope to see you next year. Stay safe!

Special circumstances

We are living in special times... Friday 25 september we received the news that 3 areas in Austria were risk areas according to the Robert Koch Institut. That had big impact for the Austrian team: they weren't allowed to start in Germany. So we created the first Austrian 24h Hydrogren Rally: Team H2allo Swagelok Austria started in Bregenz - Austria (at the Bodensee with view on Konstanz (Germany). They finished at the Hofburg in Vienna. 

Via Teams they could participate in the briefing in Konstanz and the award ceremony at the Wagenhallen in Stuttgart.

The Rally

Briefly: teams can earn points for driven kilometers, refuelings, visited countries and completed tasks on specific locations (Classic Challenge). Further they can earn points for the best blog, best photo and best video (Creative Challenge).
