Ri­dler Award Rule Changes

Street Rodder - - Street Corner -

De­troit Au­torama or­ga­niz­ers have pub­lished a clar­i­fi­ca­tion on rules re­gard­ing the qual­i­fi­ca­tion pol­icy for the Don Ri­dler Me­mo­rial Award. One of the most sig­nif­i­cant rules re­quires that the De­troit Au­torama be the first pub­lic ap­pear­ance of each con­tend­ing ve­hi­cle. So­cial me­dia has in­creased the pos­si­bil­ity of the re­lease of pho­tos of par­tially fin­ished or fully fin­ished ve­hi­cles, which po­ten­tially dis­qual­i­fies the en­try.

A new amend­ment to the rules states: “No pho­tos or com­ments of the con­tend­ing ve­hi­cle are to be posted on Face­book, Twit­ter, In­sta­gram, LinkedIn, MyS­pace, or any other so­cial me­dia web­site or In­ter­net com­ment board or blog or sent via text mes­sage or email. Friends, fam­ily, and other third par­ties with ac­cess to the ve­hi­cle must be ad­vised of the above state­ment and the Ri­dler Award qual­i­fi­ca­tions. Pho­tos, artist ren­der­ings, or videos show­ing the ve­hi­cle in a com­pleted state or in fin­ish color are not al­lowed, and will re­sult in dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.”
