The route shows few variations from 2007. It is again based around the service park in Trier, although the second day includes two remote service areas at Birkenfeld. While the stage locations are broadly the same, several tests are used in the opposite direction to last year. After Thursday's ceremonial start at Trier's historic Porta Nigra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Friday's action is based in the Mosel. Saturday is split between tests in Saarland and Baumholder before the final day returns to the vineyards. The rally ends with a spectacular super special stage around Porta Nigra with several cars on course at the same time. Drivers tackle 19 stages covering 352,89km in a route of 1174.91km. <pre> RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND ROUND 10 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 14 - 17 August 2008
