St Moritz: 17th British Classic Car Meeting
Every July, some 150 British classics make their way to St Moritz for a low-pressure regularity run and concours d’elegance. While the cars are British, the drivers are a multinational mix but there’s a heavy predominance of Swiss participants – since the Meeting is an official event of a number of Swiss classic car clubs; namely, those in support of Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Austin-Healey. But there is still a sprinkling of Brits.
This year’s one-day regularity rally starts on Saturday 10 July and heads from St Moritz out into neighbouring Italy and then back to the Engadin – a friendly, rather than highly competitive, run. On Sunday, it’s the turn of the concours, and a chance to enjoy the beauty of the automobiles in the glorious surroundings of St Moritz, 1800 metres above sea-level on the sunny side of the Swiss Alps.
Our esteemed Editor took part last year and had a marvellous time. Despite the fact that he didn’t manage to win anything. See www.classicdriver.com/uk/magazine/3300.asp?id=14257.
