    Uconn 8th Annual Car Show Saturday April 10th (CT)

    The UConn Car Club would like to invite you to be a part of our 8th Annual Spring Car Show on Saturday, April 9th. This year we WILL have a rain date of Sunday, April 10th. Please follow us on twitter for updates if the forecast looks questionable.

    What you need to know:

    W-Lot Commuter Parking Lot on the Storrs Campus
    Directly off Storrs Rd (rt. 195)
    Storrs CT, 06269
    (see map below)

    Gates open @ 9:00 am (Please try not to come earlier because the lot will not be ready)
    Registration closes @ 12:00 pm
    Gates close when the parking lot capacity has been reached (~600 cars)
    Loudest Car Competition around 12:30 pm (or earlier if the lot fills)
    Trophies by 2:00-3:00 pm

    Free to spectators
    $10 dollars to show

    There will be no pre-registration. If your group would like to park together; arrive early and drive in together as a group. The first map attached below lists parking lots in the area and their locations so you can meet as a group before arriving at the show to drive in together.

    Important: This year spectator parking will be across Rt. 195 along the side of Horse Barn Hill Road. If you do not plan to register your car, please park in the spectator area. As always, parking is limited at UConn, but we will try our best to accommodate all spectators. Police Officers and club members will be there to direct you.

    Loudest Car- A spectator judged competition. No Pre-reg necessary. NO DIESELS OR 2-STEP, sorry guys.

    Bragging Rights
    For those who have yet to see one of our shows, we tend to amass some of the greatest diversity of cars in one place. Anyone who has been to a previous show can attest there's something for everyone, including Classics, Domestics, Imports, Euros and even Supercars. All makes, models and price ranges of vehicles are welcome.

    Classes are listed below. There will be a 1st place and runner up for each category.

    Import FWD
    Import RWD
    Import AWD

    Note: Best Club Participation Club Award goes to the club with the most participating members. Best Club Award will be awarded to the club that UC3 deems to have the highest quality entrants in respect to the quality of the cars and the attitude of its members. The Type R award goes to the most ridiculously modded car. Bring your cardboard body kits!

    We Need Your Input

    Other Mentionables:
    - The parking lot has a maximum capacity of around 600 cars. Once the parking lot is full, THE GATES WILL BE CLOSED. No ifs, ands, or buts. Plan accordingly and it should not be a problem.

    - Judging will be done by the attendees and will begin at exactly Noon. Those who arrive past Noon will not be allowed to register for judging.
    - We will have porta-potties within the show as well as food and background music.

    - There will NOT be a loud exhaust competetion
    - Cars must be street legal to be driven to the show, cars that aren't street legal must be trailered to the show or they will be ticketed by the Police.
