What Rules Should I Follow at a Car Show?

What Rules Should I Follow at a Car Show?

You've put a lot of work into your ride to make it look its best, so it's completely natural that you would want to show it off. One of the most fun ways for you to do this is to enter your vehicle into a car show. However, there is so much more to a car show than simply showing up. Regardless of whether you are a competitor or are merely a spectator, there are still certain rules of etiquette that you must abide by in order to be welcomed by the car show community. Here's everything you need to know about how to behave in this unique situation: 

As a Competitor 

If you are competing in the show, it is expected that you arrive earlier than everyone else; this will ensure that you get the best possible parking spot and don't disrupt the flow of traffic once the spectators start to arrive. Set your alarm early and get all of your polishing and waxing done in advance so that you are ready to go on the day of the show. Once you have been assigned your space, accept it and be happy with it. Unless you have shelled out big bucks for a premier space, don't waste the staff's time by complaining. It won't get you anywhere and will just upset everyone involved. 

Whether you have entered your car into the show or not, resist the urge to do a burnout when leaving the venue at the end of the day. As much as car enthusiasts love burnouts, there is a time and a place for them, and the parking lot is not it.

As a Spectator 

Throughout the day, pay attention to the directions of the event staff. They are there for a reason. If they are directing you to move out of the way or not to enter a particular area, it is most likely for your own safety. One of the biggest car show rules is to not touch the vehicles; the owners put a lot of time and effort into perfecting their car and wouldn't want anything to happen to it!

Etiquette Rules for Everyone 

Whether you have entered your car into the show or not, resist the urge to do a burnout when leaving the venue at the end of the day. As much as car enthusiasts love burnouts, there is a time and a place for them, and the parking lot is not it. You run the risk of damaging other vehicles or injuring a pedestrian, and neither of those is an outcome that you want. In the same vein, don't attempt to drag race on the streets in the vicinity of the show. Police will be on high alert, knowing that there is a car show in the area, so don't bring this type of negative attention to your fellow car enthusiasts.
