This will be a relaxed judging as the addition of awards is meant to enhance the experience for the participants not add drama.  We'll be posting more about the judging as we get closer to the event so stay tuned!


Some Hints from the Judges:

  1. If you have not added any pictures of your car to the site, please load some and give us some time to look at the bio of the car you are showing (by adding this in your profile)
  2. Be sure and take a look a the pictures and the photo albums here on the Cortile website and leave a comment with the "Year, Make, and Model" if your car is pictured in the photo. We'll then go back and name the photo's with that info (e.g. John Smith's 1901 Bernardi) so the judges can reference your macchina in a search of the site.
  3. Add a "Face" picture to your profile so they recognize you when they meet you.  (Using your complete name in the profile is also helpful :-)

We would all like to thank Mid-Atlantic Sports Cars for adding this opportunity to the Italian Cortile!
