The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 8th Annual Spring Car Show on Saturday, April 9th. This year we WILL have a rain date of Sunday, April 10th. Please follow us on twitter for updates if the forecast looks questionable.

What you need to know:

Location:
W-Lot Commuter Parking Lot on the Storrs Campus
Directly off Storrs Rd (rt. 195)
Storrs CT, 06269
(see map below)

Hours:
Gates open @ 9:00 am (Please try not to come earlier because the lot will not be ready)
Registration closes @ 12:00 pm
Gates close when the parking lot capacity has been reached (~600 cars)
Loudest Car Competition around 12:30 pm (or earlier if the lot fills)
Trophies by 2:00-3:00 pm

Price:
Free to spectators
$10 dollars to show

Parking:
There will be no pre-registration. If your group would like to park together; arrive early and drive in together as a group. The first map attached below lists parking lots in the area and their locations so you can meet as a group before arriving at the show to drive in together.

Important: This year spectator parking will be across Rt. 195 along the side of Horse Barn Hill Road. If you do not plan to register your car, please park in the spectator area. As always, parking is limited at UConn, but we will try our best to accommodate all spectators. Police Officers and club members will be there to direct you.

Competitions/Events:
Loudest Car- A spectator judged competition. No Pre-reg necessary. NO DIESELS OR 2-STEP, sorry guys.

Bragging Rights
For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest there's something for everyone, including Classics, Domestics, Imports, Euros and even Supercars. All makes, models and price ranges of vehicles are welcome.

Trophies:
Classes are listed below. There will be a 1st place and runner up for each category.

1980 and Newer

Import FWD
Import RWD

Note: Best Club Participation Club Award goes to the club with the most participating members. Best Club Award will be awarded to the club that UC3 deems to have the highest quality entrants in respect to the quality of the cars and the attitude of its members. The Type R award goes to the most ridiculously modded car. Bring your cardboard body kits!

We Need Your Input
Have any ideas for our show? Anything from previous shows you would like included or excluded? Any questions, concerns or comments for us? Please let us know! We have a forum setup on our website where you can discuss anything show related WITHOUT having to register. Just follow the link here and enter the password which is UC3 (all caps). The only way to make our show better is from the input we get and we'll do our best to incorporate as many ideas as possible.

Other Mentionables:
- The parking lot has a maximum capacity of around 600 cars. Once the parking lot is full, THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED. No ifs, ands, or buts. Plan accordingly and it should not be a problem.
- Arrive with the people you want to park with. There will not be any room to leave empty parking spaces open. (see pics below for parking lots outside of the show that you can meet prior to arrival)
- Judging will be done by the attendees and will begin at exactly Noon. Those who arrive past Noon will not be allowed to register for judging.
- We will have porta-potties within the show as well as food and background music.

Sponsors/Vendors
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, please contact the club for further details by email at [email protected]
Space is limited but arrangements can be made.

Note:
Participate at your own risk
Please forward any further questions or comments also to [email protected]

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
-UC3

Bump. 2 Weeks.

Just to clarify from what I mentioned in the other thread:

IT WILL STILL BE LOCATED AT UCONN.
THERE WILL BE NO LOUD EXHAUST COMPETITION.
BE AWARE THAT THE LOCAL POLICE DEPT. WILL BE TICKETING NON-STREET LEGAL CARS. THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BE ONLY IF YOU DESERVE IT... AKA BURNOUTS, REVING YOUR ENGINE, BEING A PURE RICER.


I wouldn't worry to much about the cops. Just be aware that they will be stricter this year than previous years. I doubt us miatas have too much to worry about.

Any word on whether or not the UConn women's volleyball team will be making an appearance?

Thanks for putting on the show- couldn't have asked for better weather. One thing I would suggest for next year, since there was such a large turnout, is getting a bit more "selective" of who you let "show" their car. There were quite a cars that should have been not been on display. Not trying to sound like a dick here, and I know this would invole a pre-registration and a whole lot more work you all probobly don't want/feel like doing, but just thought I'd share my opinion.

I couldn't believe how many cops I saw in and around Uconn though.
