||There are two separate award programs

This amounts to twenty one awards, so make sure you fill in those ballot slips for your favorite Merkurs. There are no better judges than fellow Merkur owners. Only an owner knows how hard it is to keep all those little plastic clips etc. and maintain the cladding, seats and wheels in showroom stock condition.
The MCA awards are handled in a different manner than the Carlisle awards and are focused as much on the people as the cars. Last year the MCA had award classes such as the Merkur Innovation Awards, the Merkur Preservation Awards, Best XR in Show, Best Scorpio in Show, Merkur Outstanding Engineering Award, Most enjoyed Merkur Award, Freundschaft entlang der strabe (aka Friends Along the Road) and more! New award classes may be added by the judging team as the occasion arises.
Please remember, you need not to have a trailer queen restored Merkur to join in the fun! Bring any Merkur in any condition and have fun.
If you wish to help in the judging process, please let us know.
These awards will be judged by a panel of volunteer judges according to strict guidelines. The judging will take place on Saturday between 11 and 3pm, and the awards presented at the reception at the hotel on Saturday evening.
