Privat Show Car Event - With over 60 classes and 450 VWs and Audis, this year's show car event promises to be the greatest yet. Show car participants have spent months, even years, creating perfection. On the morning of the show, toothbrushes are used to remove dirt from nooks and crannies. Our car show judges will assess each participant's efforts and expect extreme cleanliness and execution. Show cars are assigned to one of four class levels. See Show Car Judging & Class Criteria page.

Helmets are required, but are available for rent at the track for $3 with a valid driver's license.

Riverside Audi Tire Burn-Out Event - We've seen you do burn-outs in the parking lots and draw quite a crowd. So take it to the next level by showing thousands of cheering people what you can do on the drag strip; and have a chance to win a trophy and a set of tires for your effort. The best, most smoky burn-out wins.

All vehicles that enter the autocross will be teched and classified on the morning of the show by the Autocross staff.

Show Car Judging & Class Criteria Stock almost no modifications Mod 1 some modifications Mod 2 more modifications Supermodified extremely modified To a large degree, determining whether a car is Supermodified is like judging a painting to determine if it's a major work of art. You look at it and you just know. There are two ways your car can be classified Supermodified; the first is you make the decision. This means you consider your car to be radically altered (ie, stretched, converted to four-wheel drive, gullwing doors, mid-engined, etc). Supermodified usually involves cutting and welding.

The second way to be classified Supermodified is to have a large amount of (and complex) modifications. This will be decided when reviewing the list of mods you've checked-off on the entry form.

Below is a guide for you to use in prepping your car for the show. Whether you are in a stock or modified class, these are the things the judges are looking for. Most importantly, be sure to clean every bit of the car and wax, polish, prepare, vacuum and so on, so it best represents you and your car. This list does not factor in all of the things the judges may consider, but it should guide you in your efforts.

Exterior Quality - 15 points. What is the quality of the bodywork and paint? If the bodywork has been altered, has it been done well? Is the finish just shiny or deep and lustrous? Is the paint smooth or orange-peeled? Any overspray, runs, ripples and so on? Dents? Chips? Are body-kit seams smooth and straight? All panels aligned? Any doors sagging? Bumpers on straight? Glass squeaky clean? All cars should have a perfect cleaning and waxing.

Interior Quality - 15 points. Is everything in good condition or truly excellent? Are the seats perfect and clean or ripped and dirty? Is the headliner intact and tight or drooping and baggy? Are the carpets clean and new-looking or dirty and worn? Have modifications, such as gauges or aftermarket seats, been hacked in, or are they professional looking? Are the sunvisors in good shape? Door panels? Every piece of the interior should be perfectly clean and prepared; there should be no dirt under the floor mats or junk under the seats. Look at the trunk or hatch. It should be prepared to the same perfect state as the interior.

Mechanical Quality - 15 points. Does everything look neat and well put together? Is the quality of the workmanship good or great? Are there special features that deserve points? Are the systems securely mounted? Do the systems work together harmoniously; i.e. do they appear to flow into one another or are they just shoved somewhere? Is the exhaust system solid or about to fall off? Are there any fluid leaks? Is the engine compartment also perfectly clean and detailed?

Suspension Quality - 15 points. Are the tires/wheels/shocks in good condition? Do they look perfect? What is the extent of modifications to the suspension, and are they well done? Front and rear stress bars? Camber plates? Special springs and shocks? Coilovers? Special bushings? Anti-roll (sway) bars? Are the brake calipers/rotors/drums in great shape? If there was a brake modification, was it well done? Are the wheels and tires appropriate to the suspension? Are the wheels coated in brake dust? Is the finish of the wheels perfect or are they scuffed? Do the tires shine or are they scuffed and dirty?

Suspension Quality - 15 points. Are the tires/wheels/shocks in good condition? Do they look perfect? What is the extent of modifications to the suspension, and are they well done? Front and rear stress bars? Camber plates? Special springs and shocks? Coilovers? Special bushings? Anti-roll (sway) bars? Are the brake calipers/rotors/drums in great shape? If there was a brake modification, was it well done? Are the wheels and tires appropriate to the suspension? Are the wheels coated in brake dust? Is the finish of the wheels perfect or are they scuffed? Do the tires shine or are they scuffed and dirty?

Overall Concept and Integration - 20 points. This is a subjective category that needs some thought. The idea here is the total quality of the car in all of the categories above and how well everything hangs together. A million-dollar paint job with a poor interior does not score high. Full engine work, but no suspension work should not score highly. What you are looking for is a car in the class that you want to bring to a show like this, which needs no apologies or excuses for anything - in which all of the modifications are correct and equally balanced.

Display - 5 points. You should provide a display documenting the car, showing special systems, recording the work in progress, dressing up the display area and so on. Displays can be entertaining, informative, or both. This is a good place to pick up what may be a crucial number of points. No display, no points.
