All owners of classic cars that exceed 30 years or older can be a contestant of the Transasia Classic.
A team is made up of (at least) 2 people and a classic car. Both contestants need to have a valid driver’s license.
For determining the maximum number of teams we took inspiration from ‘I Ching’, ‘the book of changes’.
In the Yin Yang symbiology the main focal is based on 64 hexagrammes. Each hexagram consists of 6 lines. 6 broke lines (yin) and 6 continuous line (Yang). The 64 hexagrammes form every possible combination of cosmic archetypes; the patterns of the Tao.
Therefore each group must consist of 32 teams (ying/yang)
In total 2 groups of 32 teams can participate in the Transasia Classic.
Registration can be done from the first of January 2017 by filling in the registration form on our website and paying the entry fee of 500 euros per participant.
The first 64 team-entries will be placed on the definitive list.

The Transasia Classic can be divided in two parts. Part one is the Silk Road, part 2 is the Trans-Siberian Road.
It is possible only to take part on the Silk Road to Beijing and finish there. Your car will be shipped back from Beijing to Holland and you will fly to Amsterdam. The real challenge of course will be to drive your car back following the Trans-Siberian railroad.
Costs per contestant are based on 32 teams (2 drivers 1 car) and are depending on current price ratio.
