Waxstock SHOWDOWN 2013 - Entries are Now Open!
The Detailing World SHOWDOWN 2013 - Live Finals at Waxstock - The Golden Tickets ....

Great Prizes to be WON with First Prize being £500 in CASH and OVER £200 of other prizes and thats just First Prize! There is a runner up prize worth over £250.00 too!

This is a DETAILING competition - not the best mod, wheels or original chassis - it is a paint, chrome, metal, trim, engine bay and interior cleanliness.

The competition is open to anyone; pro, not-pro, all show and FTDs. (Anybody Can Enter Pro or Amateurs )

We are looking for 16 cars with 4 reserves for the DW SHOWDOWN competition to be held at WAXSTOCK 2013

I just want to Clarify a couple of points which came up from last years SHOWDOWN, some of you will know this from last year but bear with me :)

The judging will be done by a panel with a sophisticated ‘weighted’ points judging system to ensure that daily drivers compete fairly with garage queens. In short, what this means is that if your car is driven to the show you will have a points advantage over someone who has trailered the car there. Alternatively if your car is 2 years old with 130,000 miles on it you will get a points advantage over a 20 year old car with 20,000 miles on it.

We will have as last year 5 judges who will work their way round the top 16 vehicles and hand there score sheets in to me. Once this happens the scores on all sheets are added up and the top and bottom score for each vehicle are removed leaving 3 sheets. The scores on these sheets are added up and the average score is the final points for that vehicle. We do it this way so there can be no favoritism or indeed tactical voting to get someone a high or low score. I am sure you can see we are making this the SHOWDOWN for everyone!

To Enter your car - All you need to do is start a new thread in the "SHOWDOWN Section" with a maximum of 7 pictures of your vehicle, these can be before or during a detail or all finished. ( Please do not mention products used just the process, entries will be removed or censored if you do....)

We will close the entries approx. 6 weeks before the show.

20 cars will be picked and then polled for the top 16 with 4 cars as reserves - the top 16 cars will need to be able to go to Waxstock Finals to show off their car in all its glory and At Waxstock, the Top 16 will be gradually eliminated until a winner triumphs.

Lots of Fantastic prizes to be won from the sponsors on the day .......

1) The Car needs to be available for the weekend of Waxstock - This means overnight Saturday night. Please dont enter if your car will not be available for the show. Free Entrance tickets will be provided to you. We will also have cleaning facilities available on the Saturday to assist with preperation
2) Car should be 'prepared substantially by the entrant'
3) 7 pictures maximum please
4) Cars will be polled on DW and then the top 16 to be chosen on Facebook. (4 reserves)
5) Rules can be changes at our discretion

Good Luck and Lets see those cars!

I have posted the 3 cars that I think are the most interesting so I will wait and see if any are picked for the show.
Whether any get picked or not I will still be at the show as I thought last years show was brilliant and congratulate all involved with its organization.

Who votes on the cars?? In past experience we have found with polls like this car clubs stick together, many members = many votes...mmmm I am not in any car clubs so may not be worth even trying if it goes to a face book vote..

When you say votes on cars, are you talking about Voting the Top 16 into Waxstock ie. if there is 50 cars how does it get voted down to 16 cars or are you talking about when the 16 cars are actually at Waxstock and being voted on by 5 judges?

From the main thread it says it goes to a Facebook vote, cars are placed on Facebook page for people to vote on then reduced down at the show, is this correct..???
