Judging Rules

We have an excellent team of judges with some coming up from Wellington especially for the event. They bring a huge amount of experience in their individual field and they are very excited.

Judging will only be carried out on motorcycles originally built 5 years or more prior to the date of the show and nominated in a category when entered by the owner. The age limit does not apply to Custom bikes or People’s Choice.

You will see below the points allocation for judging they have included awarding points for info boards. These don’t need to be complex but simply general info to help engage our visitors. We suggest a A3 or A4 with some history of the bike itself and any intersting details, mods etc. We recommend to put them in a frame, grab a cheap one from The Warehouse of Briscoes!
