Show And Shine

Show and Shine at Go Japan!

Sponsored by SONAX 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 run a fair and transparent method of assessing and choosing the prize winners, with every car judged purely on what the judges see with no favouritism, hidden agenda or bias towards a particular brand.

PLEASE NOTE: Entries close at midnight on Wednesday 13th September.

Open to cars from Japanese manufacturers only – the Show and Shine competition will take place in a 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 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.

This year, to makle things fairer, we are doing something different in respect of the awards. Instead of the various types of cars, we are splitting the entries into a Concierge Class for cars that are regular Show & Shine winners and the Show Class for those that are new to the competition or closer to standard specification.


  • Car of the Show
  • Cocierge Class: 1st / 2nd /3rd
  • Show Class: 1st / 2nd /3rd

Trophies will be presented at the awards ceremony, together with prizes kindly provided by prestigious car care products manufacturer SONAX, featuring a selection of their market-leading car care products.

Photos of the winners will be uploaded on 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.

Entering is easy, just click the red ‘ENTER YOUR VEHICLE’ button, complete the online form , hit ‘submit’ and you’ll be registered 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.

Whilst you will be sent a vehicle pass, an entry ticket for all vehicle occupants (including the owner/driver) is required and can be purchased via the ‘GET TICKETS’ link in the header.

Due to the quality of entries we receive for our show and shine competitions, all entries are accepted. Therefore, you will NOT receive confirmation that your car has been accepted. If you register then you’re in!

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