Every other year, in between the FEI World Pair Driving Championships, the Donau Alp Cup is organised for singles and pairs. The next edition will be held during the international driving event in Szilvásvárad, Hungary, in September 2018.

Teams from Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Switzerland are eligible for the Team Competition. Competitors from all competing nations are eligible for the individual classification.

Each Team consists of minimum two and maximum three competitors from one Nation, this can be a mix of single and pair drivers. Each Nation can only be represented with one Team.

The Team with the least penalty points over the three phases of the competition will be the winner of the Donau Alp Cup. In addition, there is a special prize for the winner of the presentation competition. The presentation is obligatory for the team members.
