Show And Shine

Show and Shine at Go Japan!

Sponsored by Power Maxed car care products

Could your car be Best in Show?
There’s only one way to find out…

Welcome to the Go Japan! Show & Shine Competition.

Here at Go Japan! we do things differently to other shows – and our Show and Shine competition is no exception. We run a fairer and more transparent method of assessing and choosing the prize winners, with every car judged purely on what the members see with no favouritism, hidden agenda or bias towards a particular brand.

Entries close 18:00 Friday 17 September.

Open to cars from Japanese manufacturers only – the Show and Shine competition will take place in an exclusive location, seperate from the main car club displays. Times will be allocated for judging and the prize presentation cermony.

How the judging works…

On the day, a panel of judges made up of Power Maxed car care product representatives, event organisers, industry experts and owners, will assess each car entered into the competition by following a pre-determined judging criteria. Having done so, they will collectively decide on the winners in each category and the overall car of the show.

Adding to the mix will be ‘Punter’s Choice’. This is decided by the public posting photos of their favourite Show and Shine car on Instagram with the hashtag: #ShineGOJPN. The owner who’s car has the most photos posted wins!


  • Car of the Show
  • Best Custom
  • Best Tuned
  • Most Inspiring
  • Punters Choice

Trophies for first place in each category will be presented at the awards ceremony, together with prizes kindly provided by PowerMaxed, featuring a selection of their market-leading car care products.

Photos of the winners will be uploaded onto this website and our social media channels.

Entry into the competition is free and each entrant will be forwarded a car display pass in advance to enable access into the show and parking in the exclusive competition area. An entry ticket for all vehicle occupants (including the owner/driver) is still required and can be purchased via the ticketing link here.

Entering is easy, just click the green button, complete the form online, hit ‘submit’ and you’ll be logged-in for the competition. Then, about a week before the event, you’ll receive detailed instructions, a Show & Shine car pass and a timetable for the day.

We look forward to welcoming you to Go Japan! and wish you the best of luck in the competition.
