Waxstock wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our show sponsors. An indoor show of this size costs a considerable amount of time, money and effort to put on. Our sponsors help keep entry prices low and the car parking free, as well as ensuring that features are well run and that prizes are plentiful and generous.
This year, our main sponsors are:
From the kitchen stove to influential car care manufacturer in just a few years, the 'refreshed' Dodo Juice is now a classic and respected detailing brand, well over 14 years old. Famous for hand made, high quality specialist detailing products, Dodo Juice went on to create Waxstock with Detailing World to ensure that the industry had its own event in the face of hundreds of non-specialist classic and general motor shows. One of the few companies to make its own products to its own recipes, Dodo Juice prides itself on an impartial and informal approach, supplying everything from the most natural waxes to high tech nano-ceramic sealants. There are no black and white answers to detailing questions, but thanks to Dodo Juice there is always a brightly coloured one... and it's probably whispered into your ear by a small blue mascot called Mr Skittles the Third.
Clean and Shiny was one of the earliest specialist online car care retailers, growing alongside a fledgling Detailing World about a decade ago. Some of the earliest detailing meets were held at the old C&S headquarters, but due to other projects, there was a hiatus in trading for a number of years until 2015 when Clean and Shiny was resurrected by the founding director. Reborn, reinvigorated and now firmly re-established, Clean and Shiny is one of the UK's foremost car care retailers, stocking a wide range of quality produce and equipment. Visit its Hampshire base and you are likely to be met by John Hole, one of the Detailing World 'founding fathers' or one of his helpful team members - maybe take a trip up on an open day (usually the first Saturday of the month... check their Facebook page for details).

The Ultimate Finish need no introduction to the hundreds of thousands of detailing and car care customers they have served since they began trading over 20 years ago. With a class leading webshop (at www.theultimatefinish.co.uk), massive choice of brands and state of the art dispatch operation allowing for next day delivery with a late cut-off, their reputation is likely to be assured for the next twenty - and beyond. What better brand to take on the sponsorship of the UK's 'ultimate' show and shine? At Waxstock we judge the car with the ultimate finish on the day, with 5 judges and a unique bias-free judging system that eliminates unduly high or low marks and that gives daily drivers as high a chance of success as garage queens.
