 CATEGORIES 

 Regularity or Competition 

 DESCRIPTION OF TIME CATEGORIES 

From the start to the rally target all participants ride the same route, on the connecting stages and on the special stages, race tracks or other timed routes. But there are 2 implementation tasks:

One category drives at a specified, constant speed on each of the trials (REGULARITY).

The other category drives as fast as possible (COMPETITION).

The timing on the entire route is measured by GPS transmitters in each vehicle.

 REGULARITY – AVERAGE SPEED 

A team can choose between 2 average speeds: a high and a low one. Each participating car registers for one of the two averages at the start of the rally. The team must drive at the selected average throughout the special stages and circuits during the rallye.

The low average is definitely not recommended for vehicles with weak engines. If the high average is chosen, some sections need to be driven quite quickly.

The 2 different average categories will be scored separately.

SPECIAL STAGES ON CLOSED ROADS (All asphalted):

The length of the special stages varies, between 6 and 12 km. At the beginning of each special stage, the two averages (high and low) are announced. The given average is “secretly” checked several times during the special stage up to the end.

RACETRACKS:

For each race track lap there is a minimum time for the high and low average. Each team drives 3 laps at their own pace, the 3rd lap will be the reference lap. The target is to reproduce the exact same time for the next 5 laps to the nearest tenth of a second.

CLOCKS AND DISTANCE MEASUREMENT:

Digital instruments are allowed for time and distance measurement. 

Competitors using mechanical stopwatches and mechanical tripmasters (or equivalent devices) will compete in the mechanical watch class, which will be scored separately. 

 COMPETITION - BEST TIME 

​​Preconditions for the competition category are a valid HTP passport (Historic Technical Passport) for the car, and for the driver and co-driver a historic racing licenses (License C/D Historic), fireproof racing suits and underwear as well as FIA-compliant helmets.

 

Appendix K of the international ​​Sport Laws contains the content of the rules to be respected.

4 classification will be scored:

Classification C/D  (-1946)

Classification E/F (-1966)

Classification G/I (-1981)

Classification index of performance (see below)

 

INDEX OF PERFORMANCE:

The classification according to the index of performance considers the age, cylinder capacity and performance of the respective cars. Taking these characteristics into account, each vehicle is linked to a specific coefficient. An old car with low performance will be linked to a lower coefficient than a more powerful younger model. The scored times during the rally are multiplied by this coefficient specific to each model. By this, a classification by index of performance is created, which will differ from the overall classification.

SPECIAL STAGES ON CLOSED ROADS (All asphalted):

The length of the special stages varies between 5 and 12 km. The fastest on the trial is the winner. The special stages cannot be practiced, as they are kept secret up to the rally start.

RACETRACKS:

After about 15 minutes of training and a break afterwards, 8 racing laps are performed (exceptions are possible). The starting grid is based on the provisional ranking of the rally. Standing start. The winner is, whoever crosses the finish line first after 8 laps.
