Two days of rally fun.
On the most beautiful tours through Eastern Switzerland.

After the Bernese Oberland and French-speaking Switzerland, the third BELMOT RAID SUISSE this year runs through eastern Switzerland.

You experience a rally in late spring, drive on roads that often look (almost) the same as they did when your classic car was a new car, and discover areas and places that you may not even know yet or that you haven't seen for a long time visited more.

The roadbook guides you precisely and reliably

MOTORWORLD in Kemptthal

by the Zurich Oberland, in the

Säntis area and the two of them

Appenzell after

St. Gallenwhere you stay overnight.

Then the journey goes again through landscapes like from a picture book, reaching the

Lake Constance and from there it goes back to the

MOTORWORLD Kemptthal.

THE BELMOT SWISS TROPHY for Young RAIDERS
up to the age of 30

“The flame must be passed on – not the ashes.”

The BELMOT RAID SUISSE supports young drivers and co-drivers like no other rally. At a time when electromobility is increasingly replacing classic automobiles with combustion engines, it is important that young people are exposed to culture – and fun! – be introduced to driving historic automobiles.

The young drivers form their own group, which drives the RAID as a unit. A RAID within a RAID, so to speak. The BELMOT SWISS TROPHY includes its own ranking. For 1st to 3rd place, for the youngest participant and for the best placed ladies team.

The young drivers receive the famous RAID rally badge with the rays motif at the start. This makes the group recognizable as such.

At the same time, the Young RAIDERS act as a closed group and stay in the B+B Hotel
St. Gallen
and eat in our own restaurant.

Special participant price, everything included, for 2 people: CHF 1,100.-

Please attach a copy of an official ID (passport, ID or driver's license) to the registration form; admission is not possible without this copy.

Extract from the regulations

Conditions of admission
Cars of all categories and displacement classes up to and including the year 2004 are permitted. The vehicles must meet the requirements of the road traffic regulations. The RAID organization reserves the right to refuse vehicles.

Scoring mode
Categories: A separate classification is created for the Veterans, Classic and Youngtimer categories (1st – 3rd prize per category).

Overall ranking:
For the categories Veterans, Classic and Youngtimers together (1st – 3rd prize). The vehicle with the fewest penalty points in all categories receives the trophy for overall victory. However, the overall winner cannot also win the category in which he took part in the rally.

Registration for vehicles born before 2004
According to the advertisement, only vehicles born up to and including 2004 are permitted to take part in the BELMOT RAID SUISSE. Younger vehicles can take part in the RAID with special approval. However, for reasons of equal opportunities with older vehicles, these are subject to a one-off handicap of 30 penalty points or are driven out of competition.

Type of competition
On routes based on a map or road book, participants have free travel within the legal regulations and are bound to certain average speeds (not exceeding 50 km/h). Secret controls on the route, time controls, various regularity tests, hose and navigation tests. Drivers must strictly adhere to the rules of the Swiss road traffic law.

Insurance

The owners of the participating vehicles must be insured for claims against third parties in accordance with the applicable regulations. In any case, insurance is entirely and exclusively the responsibility of the participants.

Disclaimer

The organizer expressly rejects any liability towards vehicles, participants, their accompanying persons and owners of the vehicles. The vehicle drivers and/or owners are liable to third parties. This exclusion of liability also applies to officials and helpers. Drivers are liable for violating legal traffic regulations. By signing the registration, the participant declares that he accepts these conditions unconditionally and that he expressly waives any legal action against the organizers or the RAID organization in any way and for whatever reasons. The organizer can punish negligence, non-compliance with the regulations, unsportsmanlike behavior or violation of the law with exclusion. The place of jurisdiction is 4144 Arlesheim (Switzerland).

Program changes

The organizer expressly reserves the right to make any changes to the program or individual parts of the event or, if necessary, to adapt the services. This decision cannot be appealed. The event takes place in all weather conditions.

Timekeeping

The sporty and competitive character of the BELMOT RAID SUISSE is characterized by numerous uniformity and navigation tests. The person with the fewest penalty points wins the BELMOT RAID SUISSE.

Handicap regulation
When measuring time, there is a handicap regulation that takes the age of your vehicle into account. A multiplier ensures that the ranking can be created based on coefficients.
The vintage is automatically taken into account when calculating the penalty points for specials and hose tests. Since speedometer accuracy generally decreases with increasing age, the year of a car also affects the number of penalty points: the older the vehicle, the lower the multiplication factor.
Example:
Born in 1938 Penalty points from specials and hose tests are multiplied by 1.38.
Vintage 1979 Penalty points from specials and hose tests are multiplied by 1.79.

Regulations
After registration and payment, the participant will receive the basic regulations for the event.
The detailed regulations will be sent to the participant electronically around a month before the rally.
At the start of the rally, the latest regulations will be given to participants in printed form.

We expressly reserve the right to make changes to the program.

This is what winners look like

Claudio and Lorenz Weibel won the overall ranking of the BELMOT RAID SUISSE 2023. This after they had already won the overall ranking last year. In the middle: René Grossenbacher, BELMOT representatives.
