ALPS TOURIST TROPHY
Alps Tourist Trophy is a motorcycle tourist event with a ranking based on navigation skills and regularity. It is open to amateurs of at least 18 years old and with a valid driving licence for the motorcycle they are riding.
Each motorbike must be road legal in the Country where it is registered. All papers, plates and insurance must be valid in the countries crossed minimum 7 days after the end of the event.
All the motorbikes suitable for on and off road use with suitable tires are permitted.
Each pilot in order to take part in the Alps Tourist Trophy must know and accept the general and technical regulation which are very similar to the ones of the Gibraltar Race, with some simplifications, for example: there are not the same classes, but only two categories and the raid formula ; there is no time window to start each Selective Session, but only a time limit to reach the next bivouac: each pilot must calculate it from his starting time from the previous bivouac (waypoint “START BIV”). He will receive 1 penalty points every second of delay; the penalty is not applied if the delayed arrival occurs with the rescue vehicle as a result of mechanical failure or accident.

Each 2022 event allows participants to discover the most beautiful on and off road routes and the amazing tourist spots of Toscana / Liguria / Veneto / the Alps between Italy and France.
The general programs of each event may be modified before the start for reasons not depending on the Organization.
Pilots travel individually, but they are not alone. The position of each one is followed by the organization through a gps device and the skill of each is compared with that of the other participants, thanks to the recording of the route actually carried out processed through dedicated software.
The goal is to exactly follow the tracks of the transfers and to reach all the transit points (waypoints) set in the Selective Sessions. Pilots registered for RAID formula have the tracks for the full route, for this reason they will start after the pilots of the two categories.
Waypoints skipped and / or travel times not respected, any gap in plus or minus, will result in the application of penalty points (in the case of times, the ratio is one point per second).
Waypoints must be achieved according their order (they are numbered) to avoid penalty. They will be provided to participants every day, before the start of each stage, by uploading the file .GPX format on the GPS device of each pilot or by sending it by email.
A GPS navigator or a smartphone or tablet with appropriate apps and one chronometer are the only tools to be used during Alps Tourist Trophy.
Both the navigators or the apps used must be able to use the .GPX format file.
Each participant must be equipped with the USB connection cable of his device.
The organization will not be responsible if it is not possible to load or display correctly all the information contained in the .GPX file for each stage.
Who collects the fewest penalties points during the race days wins.
At the end of each event, a final ranking is drawn up for each category and the top 3 of each are awarded.
At the end of the last event of Alps Tourist Trophy 2022, two overall rankings (one for each category) are drawn up too: they are reserved for those pilots which participated into at least two of the 2022 events. Each position in the ranking corresponds to a score, according the table below. The best two scores each pilot achieved during any event of Alps Tourist Trophy 2022 will be added together thus creating these two overall rankings.
1st position = 25 pts. 2nd position = 20 pts. 3rd position = 16 pts.
4th position = 13 pts. 5th position = 11 pts. 6th position = 10 pts.
7th position = 9 pts. 8th position = 8 pts. 9th position = 7 pts.
10th position = 6 pts. 11th position = 5 pts. 12th position = 4 pts.
13th position = 3 pts. 14th position = 2 pts. 15th position = 1 pt.
All the other participants who complete the route receive a “gift that certifies participation”.
All routes, including off-road, are open to traffic and it is necessary to ride with caution and respecting the laws of the Road Code.
