Awards will consist of 1st, 2nd and 3rd in all classes. Plus, a participation award for the Featured Car, plus vendor/sponsor awards (Best Preserved, etc.). There will not be a People’s Choice award at this event.

Cars will be judged only on cleanliness and condition, not on originality. To participate in the judged classes you must be a member of the BMW CCA, BMW ACA or Canadian BMW CCBC.

Cars are judged in three major areas: exterior, interior (including trunk) and engine bay. The underside of the car is not considered. A three-member team whose independent results are then totaled to determine a score for each judged entry. This process is designed to be as fair and objective as possible. For class competition there are bonus points for mileage, which evens out the competition for high versus low mileage cars. Taking the top BMW from each class, and lining them up for a final review by a three-judge team determines the Best in Show Award. Previous scores are not considered as the judges choose the cleanest, most dazzling BMW on the lawn.

Featured Car

The Featured Car this year is the wonderful BMW i8. A local club member has agreed to bring his to the show, and put it on display, so that folks can see one up close if you haven’t already.


Our biggest event sponsor, BMW Seattle, is excited for the venue change and will be in attendance, as always, with some of the latest BMW models. We also met with Hagerty recently, who is on board for another year!

Tour After the Event

Again, you just spent countless hours preparing your car for judging After the event is over, why not embark on a Club Tour before heading home? Shortly after the awards ceremony, our Tour Director, Ed Walker, will lead interested Concours participants, as well as interested attendees who parked nearby, on a tour around Mercer Island. This allows us to actually enjoy our cars in their true “Ultimate Driving Machine” element.
