Show and Shine


Show and Shine @ Tunerfest

Here at Tunerfest we like to think we know a bit about performance, tuning and modification and what it takes to prepare a car to exacting standards, not just mechanically, but aesthetically too!

As you have probably worked out, we do things differently at Tunerfest – and our Show and Shine competition is no exception. We run a fairer and more transparent method of assessing and choosing the prize winners, with no bias towards a particular car care brand. So in a bold and revolutionary move, our Show and Shine competition is judged by a nominated and neutral car club attending the event. Consequently, every car is judged purely on what the members see with no favoritism or hidden agenda.

So, how does the judging work?

Prior to the event we invite attending car clubs to apply to be this year’s hosting judges. They will be nominated ahead of the event and be given clear instructions as to how to go about their duties with a fair and professional approach.

On the day, representatives from the nominated car clubs will judge the cars entered into the Show and Shine competition according to the criteria set-out on the judging sheets and decide on the winners of each category.

Adding to the mix will be the ‘Punter’s Choice’, which is decided by the highest number of votes received from the public.

The competition will take place in the same, single location as previous events. There will be a timetable detailing the schedule for judging and the prize presentations…
