Two Dutch drivers die in German rally support event

BERLIN (Reuters) - A Dutch driver and his co-driver died in a classic car event on Saturday organized on the fringes of the German rally near Trier in southwest Germany, police said.

German rally organizers said they had cancelled the last stage of the day.

"Two Dutch participants died in an accident on Saturday for yet unknown reasons at the historic demonstration race 'Classic'. Despite immediate rescue efforts the two men died on the spot," Trier police said in a statement.

Police said the accident took place at the Arena Panzerplatte, a former tank training facility that includes the notoriously tricky "Gina" jump, which catapults cars some 40 meters.

The accident happened after the World Rally Championship cars had passed, German rally organizers said after cancelling special stage 14.

"The organizers of ADAC Rallye Deutschland have cancelled stage 14, the repeat of Arena Panzerplatte, due to an incident in a demonstration event after the passage of the WRC competitors," organizers said in a statement.

"Panzerplatte was scheduled to be the final stage today and WRC competitors have been re-routed back to the service park in Trier."
