CONCOURS RULES & CLASSES

2017 Rules and Classes

The NNJR Concours schedule for 2015 has something for both Novice and Veteran members, with each group competing separately for championship points. A Novice is a member who has not participated in a judged NNJR Concours event in the last twelve months and has not won a trophy in a previous NNJR Concours event. Participants will earn points toward a championship trophy to be awarded in each category at the end of the season.  Points will be awarded for both participating and working competitive events and workshop attendance. Participation means entering a Porsche in Full, Race Car or Wash and Shine categories.  Points will be awarded to each participant at each Concours event per the point schedule listed below (participants can only earn points at the highest level for which they are eligible at any event). Competitive events will include PCA Regional, Zone, and Parade Concours. The definition of car classes will be at the discretion of the Concours Co-Chairmen

Types of Concour Events

Full class requires much preparation as the judges will be doing a detailed inspection of the exterior, interior, storage and at some events the engine compartment. They will be looking at cleanliness, quality of preparation, lack of damage, and presentation. A team of 3 or 4 judges will first do a one minute walk around and then a three or four minute inspection. Undercarriages are not inspected at NNJR events. Winners in the full classes are based on the highest score, i.e., the least point deductions .In NNJR competitions high score is 225 points, no engine and 300 point with engine. Entrants will be notified ahead of time what areas will be judged for each event. The car with the least point deductions and thus highest score will be the winner. View full classes here (doc 5). View actual score sheets and criteria here (docs 8A to 8F)

Wash and Shine class is a popular vote with entrants and spectators given ballots to vote for the car or cars that appeal to them the most. At some events you will receive a ballot for each class and at others the cars are all grouped into one class. Preparation for this class only requires a wash and a light interior cleaning. The car in the class or group receiving the most votes is the winner.

French class is for race cars and cars of other marques at NNJR multi marque events. In this class the judges strictly do a visual inspection. No touching is allowed. The main criteria for the class is the “WOW” factor. In other words the car in the class that the judges are most excited about. View classes here (doc 5).
