The overall philosophy of Touring Class Judging is that the “best” vehicle is the most original and correct vehicle in the best condition. All vehicles meeting the entry criteria will be judged, but any modifications will result in a less than perfect score.
Those owners interested in entering their vehicle into Touring Class judging or who want to get their car closer to original can utilize these standards to achieve those goals. The standards cover subjects including entry criteria, scoring system, and detailed breakdowns of the six judged areas.
