The reasons for Rally Germany's WRC round being cancelled this week have been made clear by the event organisers.
"In the past few weeks we have worked well and constructively with the Saarland Ministry of the Interior, the local authorities and the Bundeswehr in Baumholder," ADAC Motorsport Director Thomas Voss said.
"Unfortunately, the official requirements do not allow the rally to take place. Even according to the requirements of Rhineland-Palatinate, a maximum of 350 people are permitted on the military training area under certain conditions.
"With this number of people, including participants, a World Championship round cannot be carried out.
"In addition, the area in Baumholder has a circumference of around 80km. As an organizer, you cannot ensure that the site is secured in such a way that people cannot gain unauthorized access and thus violate official requirements."
Fans who had already purchased tickets for the rally will be refunded.
