Vehicle Age Categories
Rally the Globe promotes a wide range of events, some of which are targeted at different ages of vehicle. Across all these events we apply a single, consistent set of Age Category definitions. These Age Categories will form the basis of any class competition. Different Age Categories may on occasion have different routes and time schedules if necessary.
Cars will be categorised by the date when their individual technical specification was first built. This approach means that all cars of the same specification will run in the same Age Category irrespective of the date of build or registration of the individual car.
A – Pre-war
A1 – Pioneer – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1918
A2 – Vintage – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1930
A3 – Post Vintage – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1945
B – Classic
B1 – Early Classic – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1960
B2 – Classic – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1967
B3 – Late Classic – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1976
C – Youngtimer – cars of a specification built up to 31/12/1985
X – Special – a car found at scrutineering to be ineligible in any other Age Category due to non-period modifications of a later specification date than allowed for the event.
