[concours] Coupe and 2+2 Es boot?

I’ve entered my car in about 6 or 7 concours in Driven over the past 2 1/2
years and I’ve never had the back judged. The idea, accepted by judges is
that in a 2+2, the area behind the back seat is considered the boot
therefore not judged in Driven

Saturday in Franklin, I noticed the judges looking at the boot of a 2+2,
after asking the ower to open the rear. she was in Driven.

I had entered in Display so that I could spare more time enjoying rather
than detailing so I didn’t get a chance to argue this…

the rule states “During judging, the boot and bonnet shall remain closed and
will not be judged” which means to me that on a 2+2 the rear door should not
be opened.

just wondering in case I enter in driven again.

The boot on a 2+2 is the area where the spare tire is stored along with the
jack. This area is not judged in the Driven class however the interior of the
car is judged just as the interior of a FHC.

Does this mean that you could not show it with the boot open even if you wanted
to?

If the rear hatch is open, the exterior judge should ask the entrant to
close it. This is so that fit of the hatch can be judged.

I always judge the rear deck of an E-type in Driven if I’m judging
interiors. It is part of the passenger compartment, not the boot. I DO NOT
ask for the spare tire cover to be removed except if I’m judging
engine/boot in Champion Division.

Pascal: My understanding is that the boot on a 2+2 consists of the area
under the boot floor, i.e. the spare tire well.
