The Executive Board has allocated the 2001 World Driving Pairs Championship to Riesenbeck (GER), from 15 to 19 August.

Early November, St-Gallen (SUI) had announced their withdrawal from the organisation of the Championship, which was due to take place in June 2001.

Riesenbeck successfully organised the 1997 edition of the World Driving Pairs Championship.
