The Club

St. Moritz is more than a place; St. Moritz is a state of mind.

St. Moritz represents a unique blend of adventure, sophistication, and style. The St. Moritz Automobile Club – SMAC – reflects these qualities. While other car clubs are narrowly focused on a single marque, and membership requires only car ownership or even merely an interest in the brand, SMAC is broadly focused on the thrill and magic of automobiles, past and present. SMAC members, living throughout Switzerland and internationally, own, drive and often race a wide range of classics and high performance autos. Being a member of SMAC allows one to share this passion with a select group of fellow enthusiasts, in an ambiance that reflects their values and lifestyle.


Steering Committee

Kenneth Youngstein, President / Director of Communications

When I got my drivers license, my father gave me money to buy a sensible university student’s car. Instead, I bought a 1952 Bentley for less than the price of a Mini, at the time. Nearly 50 years later, my daily drive is a 1953 Bentley.

Michael Burch, Vice President / Director of Finance.

I recently have been asked why I prefer vintage cars and I have to admit, it is all about a man and his machine – without any electronic helpers

Urs Thomann, Director of Event Planning.

Once I asked a friend, which car brand he would guess that I drive. He said: Opel. He could not have offended me more. Fact is, it is an AMG Mercedes E63 T S, 585 hp, 0-100 3,7 sec.. Enough of a good answer ?

Peter Sundt, Director of Membership.

José M. Oliver, SMAC Founder and advisor.

I guess I was born with 100 octane in my veins, loving all cars with character and style. Beauty and speed are pure oxygen to me, and having good fun with friends is the icing on the cake.
