The route shows few variations from 2008, although organisers have taken advantage of new regulations to increase the competitive distance to 407.31km. most of the roads have been used in previous years although there is one new stage in Saarland during the second leg. The rally is again based around the service park in Trier, although the second day includes two remote service areas at Birkenfeld. After Thursday evening's start ceremony 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 northern Saarland and Baumholder before the final day returns to the vineyards. The rally ends with a spectacular super special stage around Porta Nigra. Drivers tackle 19 stages in a route of 1194.63km. <pre> RALLY DEUTSCHLAND ROUND 9 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 19 - 22 August 2010
