A) Individual distance classification
All participants who reach the finish line within the fixed time limit will take part in the individual distance rating according to the following: 1km = 1 point, according to the shortest route from starting place (headquarter club) or permanent residence (individual participants) to the finish line. The basis for the classification is the European map on www.maps.google.com. If the starting point is not listed therein, the closest location must be entered as an assumed starting point by the participant. If there are more than three identical rankings with the same starting location (starting card) among the winners, the lot decides.
Additional points for individual distance classification:
» driver and co-driver with a passenger car 5 points each
» accompanying people in the passenger car 2 points each

» accompanying people with a motorbike 3 points each
» participating bus driver 5 points
» accompanying people in the bus 1 points each
» uniform or club coat or motorbike dress on motorbikes 5 points each addition
Each transgression committed by a participant and determined by the local police is reported to the organizer. For every transgression and vehicle 20% of the achieved total number of points will be deducted (individual and team classification). All violations are reported to the IPMC for further action. This classification is mandatory for all participants.
B) Team distance classification
The total number of participants actually arrived at the finish line and their points are the basis for this classification. All starting cards have to be handed in one by one and personally. Any points gained in the individual classification are taken over to the team classification. Each club or organization can call a maximum of two teams. In this case one of the teams is classified in the category “cars / buses” and the other one in the category “motorbikes”. The entry fee has to be paid by each team separately.
