4. PARTICIPANTS

Cars of all British makes up to the year 1980 are eligible to enter the British Classic Car Meeting St. Moritz. Newer vehicles with special features that enrich the field of BCCM participants are admitted to the «Youngtimer Class» by invitation. Changes of vehicle must be reported by June 7, 2019 and approved by the OC. The OC reserves the right to exclude from the rankings any unreported change of vehicle.

 

5. RALLY CLASSIFICATION

Rally classification takes account of the rating coefficient. Penalty points are multiplied by the coefficient 1.x where x = year of vehicle. For example: if a car dated 1937 has collected 1000 penalty points on the way, they are multiplied by 1.37 and counted as 1370 penalty points. 1000 penalty points for a 1960 car would be multiplied by 1.60 to become 1600 points.

In addition to the regular category «Sports Classic» with cars running against the clock and ranking, it is now possible to participate in the rally in the new category «Mountain Classic» without rally-score and without ranking - rally start and finish has to be crossed within a certain time frame. All vehicles in the category "Mountain Classic" are invited to participating in the Concours d'Elegance (with ranking).
