FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Tour de Corse Historique ?
The Tour de Corse Historique is an automobile rally of old vehicles over 5 days with an average of 16 special stages and 350 km covered on closed roads for a total of 900 km.
The average participation is 200 crews divided into 3 categories : VHC / VHRS / Legend.
What is VHC ?
VHC stands for Historic Competition Vehicle (Véhicules Historiques de Compétition), in this category the competitors must achieve the best time possible in the special stages. The winner is the one who has taken the least time to complete all the stages.
What is VHRS ?
VHRS stands for Historic Sports Regularity Vehicle (Véhicules Historiques de Régularité Sportive). In this category the participants choose between 4 average speeds (high, intermediate, moderate and low) at the start of the rally and then must stay as close as possible to the values indicated in the road-book. Each difference is penalized with penalty points, the winner is therefore the one who has accumulated the least points.
What is the Legend category ?
The Legend category was created in 2019 to accommodate teams wishing to participate in a large rally without worrying about the time or the classification. Those registered in Legend therefore have access to special stages on closed roads exactly like the VHC and VHRS but are not timed or classified.
