BMW IBSF Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Championships 2017 to take place in Königssee
Critical factors that were taken into considerations were:
• Minimal financial impact on teams regarding travel and organization
• Keep the dates and timing of the original schedule
• Experience on the operational and logistic level to host a 2-week event at such a short notice
• Availability of the track during the 2-week time period
The IBSF was very impressed by the solidarity and commitment shown immediately by the IBSF Race Organizers to support this effort in any possible way and would like to express its gratitude for it.
Most of the teams will be racing in Europe on the BMW IBSF World Cup Series just prior to participating in the BMW IBSF World Championships. Therefore, a European track was prioritized.
For those reasons, the IBSF selected Konigsee, Germany.
BMW IBSF Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Championships 2017
Konigssee, Germany (13 – 26 February 2017).
The IBSF Rules wave the required International Training Period (ITP) if the Race Organizer hosted a World Cup competition on the same track in the preceding season. As this is the case for Konigssee, no ITP is required.
