Featured Car: E39 M5
The feature car this year is the BMW E39 M5 (2000-2003). There will be a special class for these M5s and they will have their own trophies for those entering the judged class. We hope you bring your M5 out, in whatever condition it is in. The more the merrier! Dozens of these fabulous cars are anticipated this year.

Cedar River Park, 1717 Maple Valley Highway and House Way, just east of I-405 in Renton.

Participants in both classes will receive Griot's Garage samples, commemorative 11X17 poster, refrigerator magnet and chance to win raffle prizes during the day.

Judged Class
We judge only on cleanliness and not originality. You must be a member of the BMW CCA, BMW ACA or Canadian BMW CCBC to participate in the judged classes.

Cars are judged in three major areas: Exterior, Interior (including trunk) and Engine Bay. The underside of the car is not judged. Each class is judged by a three-member team whose independent results are then totaled to determine a score. 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.

Best in Show is determined by taking the top BMW from each class, and lining them up for a final review by a 3-judge team. Previous scores are not considered as the judges choose the cleanest, most dazzling BMW on the lawn.
You can find the judging philosophy documents here

Display Class
The Display Class is a terrific way to take part in the event for those who don't wish to compete but want to come and show off their car. Just wash it, clean the wheels and you'll be good to go. You'll be parked with the judged cars in your class.

Judged Class $30 ($40 after 7/23)
Display Class - member $20 ($30 after 7/23)
Display Class - non-member $30 ($40 after 7/23)

Thanks to our sponsors!
Our event this year is once again being sponsored by a generous donation from BMW Seattle. Next time you are at the dealership, be sure and thank them. BMW Seattle is providing the beautiful glass trophies as well as raffle prizes.

Griots Garage will also be in attendance as the official Car Care Sponsor of our event. Griot's Garage will be providing free samples for our participants, raffle prizes and will have representatives on hand demonstrating how to use their products. Griot's Garage will present a special Preservation Award for the BMW that is best preserved without a restoration.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Renton Lions Club.

Food and Beverages available @ 10:30 am
BBQ2U is a local BBQ catering company and will be there to quench your thirst and fill up your tummies.
