Judging at car shows should aspire to be as fair as possible in avoiding biases as well as giving each car an appropriate level of attention and time to make a sound judgment. This standard provides an outline for judges to follow when judging.
Judging at car shows should aspire to be as fair as possible in avoiding biases as well as giving each car an appropriate level of attention and time to make a sound judgment. The preferred method of judging is an independent team of judges who survey all the cars. However, we recognize that this option may not be feasible for all shows. Therefore, we advise shows to follow the following rules for participant judging:
– club members cannot vote for another club member’s car
– similarly, local cars are not voted on by other local owners
– use random ballots: an owner never votes on his own class class and only votes on a random selection of the remaining classes
It is also important to keep the age of the cars in mind. Newer cars simply will have less “wear and tear”. In addition, we have compiled a list of specific areas to review when judging a car.
Areas of Interest
– engine bay and detailing
– body and paint
– seats, carpet, dash, glass
