2 years the e55 rallye takes
place, this "race where speed is of no importance" happens on parts of
the european road 55 from Berlin via Dresden, Tabor, Schwertberg to Vienna,
or the other way round.
Teamcamps are situated in Berlin, Tabor and Vienna. Berlin and Vienna are start respectively goal and also headquarters of the ralley juries. 2 coaching teams accompany the participating teams. The last starting teams are equipped with GPS senders in order to track the streetrallye on the e55 website. One team encodes live real audio/video streams of the ralley via internet. Those fragments are meant for the internetralleynauts and their "netrace". The product of the internetralley 1999 will be a streetmap of art and cultural connectivity, which can still be used after the contest as well.
slogan of the e55_99 ralley is "wer die wahl hat, hat die qual" or
for the rallynauts: exchange of souvenirs, cake transports from
The e55 ralley wants to remind of the fact that we live in one europe on one earth and that boarders are actually nothing else than virtually kept up "division-walls" generating the notions 'foreigner' and 'citizen', which we consider unappropriate to the means of mobility of our century.
