SERBIAN TROPHY is an offroad competition involving vehicles divided into TROPHY and ADVENTURE classes. It rides on the inaccessible terrain of Kopaonik Mountain and its surroundings. The competition involves driving on the radar, one or more skill exams, as well as speed exams. The Tourist class drives in a caravan and tracks the events in the competition classes.

Before the start of the competition, each crew will receive a radar book with detailed driving directions. Radar contains a number of stages or special exams. At the end of each stage or SS, there is a judge who seals or signs the vehicle’s passage through that stage.
Each unfinished stamp carries 5,000 penalty points.
The radar ride officially ends at 7 pm, which includes the departure of the judges from the checkpoint and the return of all vehicles to the place where they are provided with accommodation.

The skills exam is marked with signal strips and gates (sectors).
For each SS participants will receive an additional explanation attached to the road-book. Teams that have completed the course and have passed all the special exams will enter the placement pool. In the event that the teams have not mastered the overall course, a team with fewer penalty points is better placed. Also, If more teams master the entire course, a team with fewer penalty points will be better placed.

Timekeeping can be done on individual marked stages or on Total Time.
Total Time represents the total time spent on the route from Start to Destination.
One penalty point is one second on the SS. At Total Time, the time is rounded off to 1 minute.
SSs can be multiplied by a predetermined weight coefficient.

the rope on the tree -1,000
