The British Classic Car Meeting St. Moritz will hold its 19th Edition on the weekend from 13th – 15th July. Once again the field is at full capacity with approximately 200 British Classic Cars. And once again the organizers have planned an attractive rally:
The “Albula-Rally”, on Saturday 14th July, 2012, leads from St. Moritz over the Fluela Pass to Davos, through Bergun, and then over the Albula Pass back to St. Moritz in the Upper Engadin. As in previous years the competitors will start the 220km rally in two groups, each heading in the opposite direction. The start will commence from 8.00am in St. Moritz Dorf in front of the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. The first finishers are expected back in St. Moritz at about 3.30pm, with the Finish this year in the pedestrian zone.
On Sunday, the program includes the public’s favorite, the Concours d’ Elégance on Via Serlas in the centre of St. Moritz Dorf. A jury will select the best prepared/preserved vehicles, which will be on display from 10.30am until 1.30pm.
This fully booked event, with around 200 vehicles, again promises an outstanding field of participants. Particularly notable in recent years is the remarkable number of 1955 Austin-Healey vehicles of the “Sebring” model 100S. There will also be a very rare Healey Westland at the start. There were only 70 vehicles of this model built during its production period from 1946-1950. And only a handful still exist in driveable condition. During its production, the Westland was the fastest production sports car being built.
Also worth mentioning is the participation of a very rare Bentley Carlton. The vehicle to be seen in St. Moritz was constructed in 1938, and in recent years has won a number of coveted awards, including 1st prize at the famous Concours in Pebble Beach in California in 2006.
