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.
