eBay Motors 2009 Motors Master Contest - Web Exclusive

Nation’s automotive buffs encouraged to flaunt their favorite Motors Master projects and win a trip to Las Vegas

Sep 2, 2009

SAN JOSE, Calif., August 5, 2009 – eBay Motors, the No.1 online automotive marketplace worldwide, today announced the 2009 Motors Master Contest, designed to find America’s top vehicle enthusiast in four distinct categories. Winners earn the title of “Motors Master” in their category, receive a trip to Las Vegas to attend the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show and receive an eBay Motors shopping spree.

Entrants will record a short video about their favorite car, truck or motorcycle project and explain why they would make the best do-it-yourself project expert for their category, and upload it to the Motors Master Web site at http://www.motorsmaster.ebaymotors.com. Expert judges and the public will vote for the top entrants in the following categories:

• Muscle cars
• Tuners
• Off-road vehicles
• Motorcycles

eBay Motors will bring the top winner from each of the four categories to the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from November 4-7, where their winning project vehicle may be displayed for over 100,000 attendees to view at the largest automotive specialty performance products trade event in the world. Each winner also will receive a $2,500 eBay Motors shopping spree to buy parts and accessories for future projects at www.ebaymotors.com, where a part or accessory sells every second.

The top projects will be selected based on the entrants’ videos and their written descriptions of how they used eBay Motors to fuel their projects and why they should be chosen a 2009 Motors Master. The initial round of votes to determine the finalists in each category will be cast by members of the public who visit the site to rate the videos and view the entrants’ descriptions (based on a scale of one to five stars) along with a panel of expert judges. Expert judges from the automotive industry will review the Finalists’ submissions and determine the Grand Prize winner for each category. The celebrity judging panel experts will consist of:

• Famous Rhodes, director of eBay Motors
• Peter MacGillivray, vice president, events and communications, SEMA
• John Neff, editor-in-chief of Autoblog
• Paul Crowe, editor-in-chief of thekneeslider.com
• Rob Einaudi, editor-in-chief of CarDomain

Additionally, eBay users visiting the Motors Master site who rate videos can also enter to win a $1,000 eBay Gift Certificate. Visitors can enter once a day during the six-week contest period.

Entries must be submitted by August 31, and voting will continue through September 14, 2009. Ten finalists will be selected for each category. The celebrity judging panel will choose one grand prize winner from each category and announce the results in early October.

“We encourage anyone who loves wheels, engines, spoilers, instrument panels or any other vehicle add-on to send us a video and tell us why they should be a 2009 Motors Master,” said Famous Rhodes, director of parts and accessories for eBay Motors. “eBay Motors offers the widest selection of parts and accessories anywhere, and we are excited to see the passion from our community come to life through this contest.”

The eBay Motors Enthusiast Contest is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, District of Columbia, and Canada, unless otherwise prohibited, and entrants must be at least 18 years old. Official rules can be found at http://ebay.promotionexpert.com/motorsmaster/rules.html.
