As a satellite event of "Hama-Fes Y163", a port opening memorial event
which conveys the history of the opening of Yokohama Port,
classic cars from the 1920s to 1973 gather on Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street
and this 500 km classic car rally over three days starts.
The rally goes around exotic towns in Yokohama: Kannai, Yamashitacho, Yokohama Chinatown,
Motomachi and Yamate, then heads to the town of flowers and dreams, Matsuzaki Town
by way of the Amagi-toge Pass running from north to south on the Izu Peninsula.
Passing through Nishiizu where there are many scenic spots such as Suruga Bay and Mt. Fuji,
after the long travel we unwind at Gora Onsen in Hakone where fresh green leaves sparkle in the sunlight.
The rally returns to Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street from Hakone through the Shonan area,
and we applaud cars, drivers and co-drivers for their good fight for three days.

About “Model Year Coefficient” and “Classified”
We are introducing "Model Year Coefficient" for overall results and "Classified" for each class results in Classic Japan Rally 2022 YOKOHAMA Y163. This is our new attempt.

■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

■Each Class Results : "Classified" applied
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.

《Results Calculation Method》
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.
