Meet Rachel

Meet Rachel Gibbeson, our Motoring Events Manager for the East Coast. Rach looks after our esCarpadians from their initial enquiry until after the event takes place.

How long you have worked at Camp Quality and which events do you look after? 

I joined Camp Quality in 2019 and deliver the esCarpade and Funx4 events.

What is your favourite part of esCarpade?

esCarpade is one of the best weeks of the year! The fun, the people and the camaraderie on esCarpade is like no other. The event really changes your life.

What are you excited about for the 2024 event?

This year will be special as we have a lot of event participants in the regions we are starting in and ending in. It is always great to see the home towns of our beloved esCarpadians.

I also can't wait to have more new cars onboard! We are one big esCarpade family and we are always looking to have new members join. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about joining to give me a call so I can tell you why this event is one to add to your bucket list!

Meet Ben

How long have you worked with Camp Quality and which events are you involved in?

I’ve been involved with Camp Quality since 2004. Since then, I have mapped out 18 x esCarpades, 4 x wesCarpades and 4 x FUNx4 events, visited over 250 regional towns, driven around 215,000km with over 100,000km of that on dirt, crossed deserts, scrambled up Billy Goat Bluff and eaten close to 400 pub meals.

What's your favourite part of esCarpade?

I like watching the reaction on people’s faces when they hop out of the car either at lunch or the end of the day. Responses include: "That was amazing", "We are definitely getting air conditioning next year", "I’m going to throttle you!" and "Has anyone seen our exhaust?"

What are you excited about for the 2024 event?

2024 is going to be a year to remeember on esCarpade. The start in the capital, the drive through NSW into VIC, will be provide us with a little bit of everything. Farmland, some mountains and maybe even a bit of Mailee Scrub! Bring it on...

What is a fun fact about you?

Two fun facts: I have a blue English Staffie called Scout, and in high school I was in the school musical with Hugh Jackman.

Our Community

The very first esCarpade took place way back in 1992, had 25 cars, and raised $75,000.

Fast forward to today, and our esCarpadians have driven 85,000km, shared countless laughs, and raised over $23 million for Camp Quality and its work helping children whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
