The anniversary edition of the BCCM St. Moritz will begin on Thursday, July 5, with the registration of the vehicles in St. Moritz Bad and the evening welcome party with opening dinner in Zuoz. The latter is under the motto “The Swinging Sixties” and is moderated by Grisons comedian Claudio Zuccolini. The additional day on Friday gives the participants an “easy driving day”, focusing on enjoyable and stress-free driving. In addition to classifications at the Engadin Airport and at the parking areas of the Corvatsch mountain railways in Silvaplana-Surlej, this day is also dedicated to the “Horse Shoe Challenge”. Whoever can complete two runs within the same amount of time will win this hill climb on the closed track between Celerina and St. Moritz along the Olympia Bob Run wins.
“Bernina-Rallye” on Saturday
As in previous years, the traditional rally on Saturday will also be held on the anniversary event of the British Classic Car Meeting. In 2018, it will take you from St. Moritz via the challenging Bernina Pass into the Valtellina in Italy. Via the Mediterranean Tirano and Bormio, we return to the Engadine. In total, the participants will cover 200 kilometres. In addition to the regular category “Sports Classic” with time classification and ranking, participation in the rally in the “Mountain Classic” category is also possible without rally classification and ranking. This new category was introduced last year for those rally participants who prefer pure driving pleasure over competition.
Concours d’Elégance on Sunday
The real highlight, the Concours d’Elégance, which is extremely popular with the public, will be held in St. Moritz’s village centre on Sunday, July 8. All vehicles participating in the BCCM will be exhibited on Via Serlas from 10.30 am until approximately 2 pm. Each year, several thousand visitors do not want to miss this elegant beauty contest with award ceremony at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Food stands ensure the culinary well-being of the visitors, who can win attractive prizes in the public competition. Of course, the competition for the “best-dressed team” will take place in 2018 as well. Among all the BCCM participants, the team, which creates the most beautiful overall visual image with their vehicle will win.
