Top only will be a people’s choice award i.e., anyone at the event from spectators to other competitors can vote awards will be by the same class structure as Full. 3. Display class will be basically those who want to show their Porsche but not have it judged, however there will be a few trophies given out by the chairman for “interesting” cars. 4. There will be a display only (no judging) race car, “outlaw,” special interest section set aside, same pricing for entry. The intent at this event is to have fun, appreciate the Porsche marque and individual cars and although we are looking for harmony among the entrants we will have a protest committee which will consist of the Head Judge (Dave Melchar), the lead judge for the team of the protested Porsche and the concours Chair as a tie breaker (Steve Ross). We ask that cars arrive by 9am we hope to commence full concours judging by 11am (Trailers follow signs.) ( So those folks in that class please be on time) and hopefully give out trophies between 1-2pm. Preregistration is now open. The cost is $30 in advance and $40 the day of the event.
