show & shine sunday

Registration now open

The Show & Shine is the crown jewel of the whole weekend. Last year we had a record number of entrants and this year it'll be bigger again. We'll be offering the victors of the show & shine categories some fantastic prizes including cash prizes for the best in show for Air-cooled and Water-cooled. 

Daily Driver Competition: In addition to the normal show & shine, there will be a daily driver competition on Saturday. Please see below for more information.

Entry to the Show & Shine is by pre-book only. Unlike previous years we will not be accepting new entries on the day. Registration opens soon - watch this space.


21 classes + 3 Special awards
In addition to the standard show and shine, there will be a handful of independent judges, stealthily checking out all the show & shine entrants to award what they think is the best in show aircooled and watercooled, as well as the special 'Spirit of Dubbin' award, in memory of the legend that is Clive Allen, from the Old Dub Shop. By entering the show & shine you will automatically be in with a chance of winning one of these special awards.

To enter the show & shine please follow the button below and complete the form, once filled out we will look over your application and get back to as soon as we can with the payment details to complete your booking. We have limited space in the show & shine, with 10 entries per category. The more popular categories fill up fast. Entries will NOT be done on a first come, first serve basis, we will scrutinise all applications, so please be thorough with your responses to the questions asked and make sure you send in some photos. 

Thank you for your application and good luck.


JUDGING - will be administered by our team of independent Volkswagen enthusiasts.

ENTRY FEE - £5 per vehicle. Proceeds are donated to our local featured charity (TBC).
* please note that the show & shine entry fee does not include your admission to the show.

We want to find out as much as possible about your vehicle before you even get to the show. So when booking in you'll be asked a few questions about your vehicle. We will print these off and display them in the window of your vehicle for the show to give the judges and spectators a little background info on your car.

ENTRY TIMES - The gates open for entry between 8am and 9.30am on Sunday morning.
Please remember that this is our busiest time for traffic, so come early and be patient.

Cars must be in place before this time. The gates for the show and shine opens at 8am. No entry into the arena after 9.30am.

RESULTS - will be announced about 3pm on Sunday. There are trophies for the winner of each category and all entrants will receive a Show & Shine souvenir.

Daily Driver Competition: Saturday 16th June.

Ideal for those that want to show off their pride and joy but can only visit the show on the Saturday. This is not a show & shine, it's an informal display for people that drive their VDubs daily, with a couple of trophies going out to our favourite rides. 

There's no need to pre-book, you just rock up on the day on Saturday and head for the car park. We'll be collecting money for our chosen charity, so a donation to enter would be much appreciated.

The display area will be opposite the cars for sale section, facing on to the show arena.
