The marking system is as follows: An example of a score:

A. The appearance and the technical adequacy of a motorcycle

  • The mark can be from 0 to 22 points.
  • The mark 0 points is given to an excellently restored and preserved original motorcycle.
22 points are given to a motorcycle that is in poor condition and renovated using non-original parts, but fulfils the conditions for taking part in the competition.

Explanation of the marking system:
  • A non-original carburettor – 3 points
  • MC version (Puch) – 15 points
  • Motorcycles with sidecars with a two-wheel drive – 10 points
A Technical Commission shall decide on the appearance and technical adequacy at a technical inspection.

The commission shall notify the competitor about their decision immediately after the inspection is finished. Their decision is final. The commission may decide that a vehicle does not meet the technical conditions, whereupon such vehicle is not allowed to start.
e.g., 10 points

B. Competitor’s year of birth

Competitors born in 1984 or later will be given 42 points; older competitors will be given the number of points calculated from their year of birth divided by two.    
e.g., 1950 – 50/2
= 25 points

C. Year of manufacture of the vehicle

The year of manufacture is divided by two.
e.g. 1952 – 52/2
= 26 points

D. Engine capacity

3% of the engine capacity.
e.g. 300*3%
= 9 points

E. Drive time

One second is one point.
e.g. 3 min 40 s
= 220 seconds
= 220 points

Total score

is the sum of all points. The competitor with fewest points is the winner. If there are several competitors with the same number of points, the older competitor is the winner. If the competitors are of equal age, the decision shall be made by lot.
