Luke, I might be well out of the line, but I used to be involved with Truck shows (lorries - pardon my english :roll: ) and the most popular tropheys we had were for human perfomance like Mr Wet Belly (Miss wet tshirt parody), fastest wheel exchange, tyre (or beer barrel) rolling... These had to be organised and timed but were greatly enjoyed espetially by the better halfs :mrgreen: and kids. You should see the support and applause truckers get for these... :wink: Also they gave an opportunity to get to know each other better and see the funny side of selfs. :lol: We also had competitons in frankfurter eating and beer drinking, but I assume that will be there in un-organised form anyway, right? :lol:

ok thinned it down now to 35 trophys :lol:

All the show and shine vans (free to enter ALL Transits are welcome) will be entered for 2 catagorys the 1st will be the MK of the van - and there will be 3 trophys for each

MK1 - 1st 2nd 3rd
MK2 - 1st 2nd 3rd
MK3 - 1st 2nd 3rd
MK4/5 - 1st 2nd 3rd
MK6 - 1st 2nd 3rd
MK7 - 1st 2nd 3rd


then the owner will get a choice of which other catagory to enter into, there will be 3 trophys for each catagory and the cataorys will be :arrow:

Working Transit - 1st 2nd 3rd
Standard Transit - 1st 2nd 3rd
Modified Transit - 1st 2nd 3rd
Transit Camper - 1st 2nd 3rd
ICE install - 1st 2nd 3rd


you'll only be allowed to enter your van as 1 of the second lot of catagorys, as this makes it fairer ie 1 van wont end up with 7 trophys. So if you have a MK3 modified, working Transit, it will be entered in the MK3 catagory but you will have to choose to either enter it as a modified or a working transit :D

there will also be a trophy for the sound off winner if Gurj can get enough ICE'd vans there!

then there will be the ultimate coverted Best of show trophy which every van will be up for but only one trophy 8)

...................now please no comments moaning you would pick different catagorys, i've tried to get a good balance, i know some will be contested more than others but untill we have run the show for a year we dont know what balance we'll get :)
there is plenty of scope to increase the catagorys in years to come eg. 4x4 countys, sportvans, pickups, tourneo's ect ect but as this is the 1st year we'll have to suck it and see :D
