For motor sportsmen and friends from all over Europe, Dresden was the capital for off-road sports this summer. For the 3rd time, the Rallye Breslau started on the „Augustusbrücke" in Dresden to its 15th tour. It is the biggest off-road and 4-wheels motorsports event for professionals and amateurs in Europe, and people talk about it as the "ultimate big adventure".

Highlight on the fairground was the prologue race with banked corners, waterholes and mogul pistes on 4 kilometres- twice as long as last year. The „adventure rallye" 2009 extended over seven days and 1600 kilometres of evaluation to its destination near Breslau. The FORTIS Off-Road Racing Team in the Land Rover Defender was able to be in the head group during most of the time of the race, but unfortunately, was eliminated because of problems with the cooling and the fuel system, and ended up on 73rd place.
