What kind of car do I need for wesCarpade?
All entrant vehicles must be at least 20 years old and pass the scrutineering checklist. Vehicle registration must cover the period of wesCarpade. In addition to Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP), all wesCarpade vehicles must be covered by either Third Party Property Damage OR Comprehensive Vehicle Insurance.
For first year entrants, you do not need a themed car just a vehicle that passes the scrutineering checklist. We will provide you with stickers for your vehicle.
What does it cost?
There is a registration fee per person of $750 which must be paid prior to the start of wesCarpade. This will cover all meals on the event from breakfast on Day One right through to the final day of the event as well as two Camp Quality branded shirts and a cap. All fuel, accomodation and car maintenance is to be covered by the entrants.
Do I need to book my own accommodation?
All teams are responsible for arranging and paying for their own accommodation. Camp Quality will produce an accommodation guide. This provides you with some suggested options in each of the towns we pass through. Please remember accommodation can sometimes be a little hard to come by especially when visiting the more regional locations, so it's a good idea to plan and book as soon as possible. We do encourage you to buddy up and look at twin accommodation. We will let you know once this is available.
What about my luggage?
There is a luggage truck for storage. It can transport your excess baggage from one town to the next for the week. The luggage truck will be at breakfast each morning for you to drop off what you need and at check-in location each afternoon to pick up what you need.
What is the minimum to fundraise?
The minimum amount to raise is $5,000 per car entry and this must be raised prior to the start of the event. Any money received after this date will be added to your tally post event. All monies for each year must be receipted by 31st December or will be receipted to the following year's fundraising totals.
How do I fundraise?
The Camp Quality team is here to support you through all your fundraising efforts. We also have a heap of hints, tips and ideas within our fundraising tool kit.

Can we join forces with other cars to fundraise?

What happens if my car breaks down?
In the instance of a breakdown, we travel with a fleet of mechanical workshops (MW's) who will be there to assist you. It may be that your vehicle can't be fixed and in this case the MW will transport you to the nearest town. Any car maintenance issues will be at the expense of the owner.
How many co-drivers can i take?
There is a minimum of two people in the car (Driver and Co-Driver/Navigator) and a maximum of four people.
Are we covered under Camp Quality's public liability insurance?
No. You need your own Compulsory Third Party Insurance. As part of our Risk Assessment and Safety Requirements for wesCarpade in addition to Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP), all wesCarpade vehicles must be covered by either Third Property Damage OR Comprehensive Vehicle Insurance. The insurance policy must be valid for any vehicle to be able to participate in ANY Camp Quality organised events.
Are there events during wesCarpade?
As part of wesCarpade we visit schools along the way to showcase our Primary School Education Program that answers difficult questions kids have about cancer. There are also plenty of Fun Stops along the way which is time for you to get out of your vehicle and stretch your legs and maybe hit a golf ball, bob for apples or hit for six. Many of the towns we visit we are welcomed by a breakfast, lunch or dinner put on by the community, which is a great opportunity for everyone to see the cars and have fun with the community. On the last day, wesCarpade has a family fun day which is filled with fun, games and arrival of our wacky cars!
