Sports execution

In classic regularity the time fixed respect crossing the different areas in which the entire route is divided is the determinant factor in the ranking.

The sectors are settled between two "Time Controls" (CO) which can be detected at the full minute or fraction of a minute, if the interval between the cars was established with a period of less than 60 ".

The CO transit time is detected when the copilot lean the schedule on the timekeeper table. The competitor will have a time frame of 59 "to perform the above operation.

For example, to pass at 10:00, the time within the competitor must lean the schedule (TDM) will be from 10:00:00" to 10:00:59" and to transit at 10:00: 30, the time within the competitor must lean the schedule (TDM) will be from 10:00:30" to 10:01:29".

In the case of transit in advance or delay on the theoretical time of CO the following penalties are assigned:

- 100 penalty for each minute or fraction of a minute in advance;

- 100 penalty for each minute of delay or fraction of a minute with a maximum of 300 penalty.

Within the CO delimited areas there may be precision time checks (PC) and average checks (PM).

Chronometrical precision trials (PC) are measured at centi second (1/100) and the time is detected when the front wheel of the car passes the pressure switch (or photocell in the case of rough terrain or winter races).

The average checks (PM) are manually detected to the tenth of a second (1/10).

PC measurements (pressure switch or photocells), properly marked by signs, may be single or multiple and will be positioned perpendicularly to the road.

In the case of single test the time of entry (opening) with pressure switch or photocell and the time of exit (close) will be detected, always with pressure switch or photocell. 

In multiple tests, also known as "chained", the exit transit time is worth simultaneously as the exit time of the test in progress and opening time for the next trial (opening and closing coincident).

In precision chronometrical trials (PC), 1 penalty for every centi second earlier or later than the required time is given. 300 penalties is the maximum penalty for each PC. For each stage, the worst PC made by each competitor will be removed in the final ranking.

The average checks (PM) consist of defined length tests with verified respect of the assigned average. Along the path of each test, whose start is given by the timekeeper to the stationary  vehicle, two or more secrets detections to the tenth of a second may be performed. For each grouping an average to follow will be assigned. This average varies at each average test (PM) as a function of the test conformation.

In the average checks (PM) 1 penalty for every tenth of a second is given, with truncation cents, that is no rounding of tenths early or late with respect to the ideal time of transit. 

300 penalties is the maximum penalty for each PM. For each stage, the worst PM made by each competitor will be removed in the final ranking.

Transit controls (CT) may be expected in certain localities; the competitor must simply stop and an assigned person will affix the transit stamp on the schedule. The exclusion of the race is provided with only one transit stamp missed. 

The "Road Book" is delivered for each team during the sports checks, which will be used to follow the race route through a conventional symbols and describes the different time controls (CO), chronometrical trials (PC), average checks (PM ) and the possible transit controls (CT).


It will be realised:

Prologue in Fiames, Thursday March 5 from 21:00 to 22:30 with 8 chained PC.

N. 50 precision chronometrical trials (PC) with photocell placed at 5 cm by the ground level;

N. 9 average checks (PM) with N. 27 secrets surveys.

For classifications, the cars will be grouped as follows:

1st Group: cars belonging to A,B,C,D classification period (until 1946)

2nd Group: cars belonging to E classification period (1947-1957)

3rd Group: cars belonging to E classification period (1958-1961)

4th Group: cars belonging to F classification period (1962-1965)

5th Group: cars belonging to G classification period (1966-1971)

6th Group: cars belonging to H classification period (1972-1976)

Admitted cars

Participation in the WinteRace 2015 is reserved for cars built within 31st December 1976

Only 80 selected vehicles will be admitted. In the case of a greater number of entries, the organising committee will make selection based on the following preference criteria:

  • year of car construction (the fist produced model);
  • model rarity;
  • particular aesthetic value or car technical interest.

Order and interval start

Race numbers are assigned in ascending order, according to the car classification period already mentioned, and in each Group according to the following criteria:

  • I) priority drivers crews (Top driver, A, B, C e D);
  • II) year of the car;
  • III) descending order of capacity.

The starting order of the 1st and the 2nd stage shall be completed in ascending order according to these principles.

In the starting orders compilation the Race Director, according to Stewards, will establish intervals between Groups, according to the stage structure. 1’ (one minute) will be the interval between cars within each Group.

Pre-race checks 

The scrutineering will take place on competitors request, at the time shown in the Supplementary Regulations, Thursday, March 5, 2015 from 10:00 to 17:00.

To facilitate the performance by reducing the waiting time for checking the documentation before the race, all competitors are asked to kindly send a copy of the following documents required, together with the registration:

1. Driver's license;

2. ACI member card;

3. Regularity or higher Licence;

4. Medical certificate;

5. Fiche of the car.


The following results will be drawn up:

• PC results

The rankings will be compiled at centi second, with 1 point penalty for each centi second early or late.

• PM results

The ranking will be compiled at tenth of a second, with truncation cents, that is no rounding of tenths, with the following criteria:

Ideal time      Detected time     Penalty points

10:17:22        10:17:22 0 1/10            0

10:17:22        10:17:22 3 1/10            3

10:17:22        10:17:22 5 1/10            5

10:17:22        10:17:22 6 1/10            6

10:17:22        10:17:22 9 1/10            9

10:17:22        10:17:23 0 1/10           10

10:17:22        10:17:23 5 1/10           15

10:17:22        10:17:23 6 1/10           16



For each stage and crew, the competitor's worst result (only one time) obtained in PC and PM will be canceled; possible penalties obtained during Time Controls are excluded from the gaps.


For all competitors, according to the vehicle used, the following improvement coefficients will be applied:

- competitors with vehicle of Group 1: 130%

- competitors with vehicle of Group 2: 120%

- competitors with vehicle of Group 3: 110%

- competitors with vehicle of Group 4: 105%

- competitors with vehicle of Group 5: 100%

- competitors with vehicle of Group 6: 100%


The provisional results published at the end of the first stage must be considered

final half hour after its exposure and in the elements that have been used for its compilation.


At the end of the race, adding all the penalties obtained in PC and PM, with possible penalties during CO as well as other penalties expressed in time, the following overall rankings will be established:

a) general;

b) grouping;

c) Racing stable;

d) special:

- for women's crew (both members);

- for foreign crews (both members).


The following prizes will be awarded:

- For the first 10 crews in the overall standings;

- For the first 3 crews in the group standings;

- For the first classified racing stable;

- The first female classified crew;

- For the first three classified foreign teams.

The crew obtaining the best result among average tests will receive by the BSI private bank in Luxembourg, a 100 grams gold bar of 3,500 euros value.

General classification, grouping and priority drivers prizes couldn't be accumulated: the winners, with the most classifications will only be assigned with the prize of the most important standings.
