You're invited to participate in TWO upcoming Concours events!  REGISTER NOW!

With the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Chesapeake Region Board has determined the normal Chesapeake Challenge activities cannot occur this year.  But the Concours Committee has developed two no-contact Concours events.  The objective is to have fun, with safety for all participants.  Members can enter their vehicles, see their vehicles, and those of others virtually, receive judging much like we've done in the past, and have the ability to earn nice awards and trophies!

This is for Two (2) separate Concours events - 1. Drive-up Judging and 2. a photo competition.  Enter both!



Entry Details:

  • Entry Fee: $5 
  • Payment is required for pre-registration. If you do not wish to pay online, please contact the event registrar to arrange alternate registration and payment (click the 'Send a message' Organizer link).
  • MSR Registration will be capped at 100 vehicles.  Walk-ups/Registration at the event is not possible. 

Schedule: Judging will begin at 9am and take approximately 10 minutes per vehicle, with 10 minutes between vehicles.  There will be separate lanes for Full and Street category judging

Class Categories:

"Full Concours" - Judging each vehicle's exterior, interior, and engine; but this year not the chassis and no engine judging for Boxsters and Caymans.

"Street" - Judging only the exterior and interior of the vehicle.

Judging Criteria: At Chesapeake Region Concours events, we judge cleanliness, preparation, and condition.  We will use the normal judging inspection and evaluation process, except no touching.  Interiors will be judged through the windows.  The vehicle occupants do not need to get out, open the door(s), or open the window(s). 

Judging Process:  

  • Judges and participants will wear masks, and gloves as necessary.  We will have hand sanitizer on-hand.
  • Participants will sign waivers as they enter the parking lot.
  • Participants drive their vehicles, at their specified time, to the queuing lane
  • The lead judge photographs each car
  • Judging will begin with five (5) minutes for positioning the car in the judging area, and introductions
  • Each car gets the normal five (5) minutes for judging
  • Judging team tabulates results and determines class winners

Preparation:  We will have a spread-out preparation and queuing area for arriving cars.  Participants should plan to arrive early to wipe-down their cars and be ready to queue for their vehicles for judging at their allotted time.  

Location:  Chesapeake Region Tech Co-Chair Jim Earlbeck's "Earlbeck Gases & Technologies" located at 8204 Pulaski Highway, Baltimore/Rosedale, MD 21237.  It's located with easy access to I-695 and I-95.
