Modified cars will be taken in to consideration alongside their counterparts.

Visitors will be invited to vote for their favourite car over the duration of the show, and the two cars with the most visitor votes will be awarded first or second place on the final day. The winning car will be invited back to next year's event along with the possibility of displaying their pride and joy at Race Retro's sister events; Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery and The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery.
