It may be an ultra-wild piece of machinery, or specifically constructed for amateur or professional competition, however to be accepted into ProComp, your vehicle still needs to be finished to a high, overall standard – as does any vehicle in any Meguiar’s MotorEx category. The eligibility of any applicant for ProComp will be assessed on each vehicle’s own merits. There are two distinct classes in ProComp:

PRO-MODIFIED
Vehicles that are significantly modified, yet look like they could still be driven on the street. Registration is optional and is not compulsory, nor is it rewarded with points.

COMPETITION
This category caters for purpose-built, competition vehicles. They are likely to have a fully-fabricated chassis, extensive bar work, modified suspension systems, comprehensive engineering changes and a sparse, competition-style interior.

PRO MODIFIED/COMPETITION AWARDS
First Overall and Runner-Up Overall Pro Modified will be awarded a billet trophy
First Overall and Runner-Up Overall Competition will be awarded a billet trophy

PRO MODIFIED JUDGING CATEGORIES
• BODYWORK/PAINTWORK
• ENGINEERING/FABRICATION
• INTERIOR
• OVERALL QUALITY & DETAILING

COMPETITION JUDGING CATEGORIES
• BODYWORK/PAINTWORK
• ENGINEERING/FABRICATION
• INNOVATION
• OVERALL QUALITY & DETAILING

JUDGING GUIDELINES
Although Pro Modified and Competition are separate classes, both are judged via similar criteria. Level of engineering, use of custom-made components, degree-of-difficulty, innovation, quality of workmanship and attention to detail are the key elements in all judging categories.

JUDGING CRITERIA
BODYWORK/PAINTWORK: 
Bodywork incorporates (but is not limited to), all panels, panel gaps, body lines, body kits, windows, bumper bars, trim and moldings. While paintwork incorporates (but is not limited to) all exterior painted surfaces (including jambs), under bonnet and boot areas. Includes both standard and special effects paints along with murals and graphics.

ENGINEERING/FABRICATION: ProComp vehicles typically exhibit a significant level of re-engineering to maximise performance. This usually requires considerable fabrication to incorporate. Judges will be looking at the integration of these two facets. Judges will assess such areas as (but not limited to); chassis, engine, drivetrain, suspension, exhaust, braking, fuel system, safety, etc.

INTERIOR (Pro Modified): Incorporates, but not limited to, trim, seats, pedals, steering, coverings, dash, gauges, electronics and gadgetry. Fit and finish along with fabrication/molding will also be scored. Judges will reward functionality, along with the incorporation of innovative materials and finishes.

INNOVATION (Competition): Competitiveness and innovation go hand in hand. Vehicles that are well planned, skillfully executed and feature clever innovation for improved performance along with custom fitted appendages that assist maintenance will all be rewarded in this category.

OVERALL QUALITY & DETAILING: Judges will be looking for a high-level of fit, finish and detail in areas such as (but not limited to); exterior, interior, engine bay, driveline, suspension, chassis and boot.

ProComp Eligibility Criteria:
• Vehicles do not need to be registered.
• All classes are ‘open’ with no sub-classes, categories or groups (i.e. sedan, coupe, ute, V8, six-cylinder, etc).
• Must not have been previously entered in Meguiar’s Superstars – unless the organsier deems the vehicle has been sufficiently altered or modified.
• Vehicles must be deemed, by the organiser, to meet the spirit of the competition.
• Eligibility of any applicant for ProComp will be assessed via the information and images supplied with the completed application form.
• Vehicles may be sponsored.
• Organiser reserves the right to refuse entry without necessarily assigning a reason.
• Organiser has final say in determining any vehicle’s class or category.
