We had a very good day, our first Waxstock as a exhibitor and won't be the last.

Having the additional hall space, the stage and more cars inside were all positive improvements. Hope next year retains the same hall size and format.

Next year - getting a hotel again, early drive up this morning and 200miles of driving in a day was not huge fun.

Have many pics of cars to post. I'll start getting them up tomorrow once I've edited them and uploaded to Flickr.

Thanks for organising another great show.
Cheers
Chris

Was surprised by the top 3 tbh, were some better cars among them imo and some pretty big mistakes on some of the top 3

Oh and who's was the Clio in top 16? Top job from the cheapest car in the room, a credit to the owner
We can't bring the results any closer than 3.30pm due to judging. The judging of 16 showdown cars with 5 judges and multi-page forms means we can only do justice to those cars by having many hours of judging and about an hour of calculating the results. 150 Arrive and Shine cars with 3 judges also means a lot of marks need adding up and this takes time. From close of judging, to marking, to stage... it is literally a race to get the results ready for 3.30pm.

Regarding Top 3 Showdown, we use five judges, all independent and very experienced/knowledgable. We have a very fair and sophisticated scoring system that takes into account age, mileage, daily driver etc and top and bottom marks from each judge are discounted to avoid bias. You are entirely entitled to disagree with the result; the judges are only human after all and judging is still based on opinion. However, we would ask all who question the judges' efforts to spend as long inspecting the vehicles as they do. And indeed, often the judges have access to more of the car than visitors do, so maybe they spotted something you missed and were impressed by it (or conversely spotted something with the other cars that marked them down). It isn't quick or easy being a Showdown judge...

Pro-valets (www.pro-valets.co.uk) have spare ones available for a nominal sum, if I remember correctly. PVD published and printed the show guide for Waxstock.
