Kingdom including Northern Ireland regardless of age or condition. $20.00 registration fee per car and you receive two (2) Saturday Adult admission passes to the games. They want the cars there at a minimum between 10:00 am – noon when the balloting takes place (they can extend it), but you’re free to park it and move along and enjoy the games.
Cars are staged at Main Entrance so there is a lot of foot traffic. Judging is strictly based on votes by interested visitors so staging and presentation are key (smooshing helps too) if you want a chance at a trophy!!. It’s always a great time!
