About "Model Year Coefficient" and "Classified"
In Classic Japan Rally 2022 MOJI, the "Model Year Coefficient" is applied to the overall results.
The results for each class are ranked based on "Classified".

■Overall Results : "Model Year Coefficient" applied
Your score is calculated by multiplying the points given to time difference of competition sections of time trial competitions (PC) conducted in the classic car rally and the model year coefficient of your vehicle.

《Model Year Coefficient》
Vehicles with the model year of 1945 or earlier … 1.25
Vehicles with the model year of 1946 to 1957 … 1.15
Vehicles with the model year of 1958 or later … 1.0

■Results for Each Class : "Classified" conducted
We split participants into different classes depending on their ability based on their results of specified competition sections (Classified designated sections) of time trial competitions (PC) conducted in the classic car rally.
Participating vehicles are divided into four classes, and the results of four days are announced for each class (the Model Year Coefficient not applied).
Dividing class enables participants to know their current skill level, so no matter which level they are at, they can enjoy competitions more toward a higher rank in the class.

《How to Divide Class》
Class is divided into three levels depending on the average difference calculated by subtracting the top three worst time sections of each vehicle from valid competition sections.

Class A … Drivers with an average time difference of Classified valid competitions of 0.00 seconds or more and no more than 0.07 seconds.
Drivers who have finished in the top five overall in the past Classic Japan Rally tournaments.
Class A … Drivers with an average time difference of Classified valid competitions of 0.00 seconds or more and no more than 0.07 seconds, and Drivers who have finished in the top five overall in the past Classic Japan Rally tournaments. Class B … Drivers with an average time difference of Classified designated sections of 0.08 seconds or more and no more than 0.15 seconds.
Class C … Drivers with an average time difference of Classified designated sections of 0.16 seconds or more and no more than 0.30 seconds.
Out of Class … Drivers with an average time difference of Classified designated sections of 0.31 seconds or more.
