Real Superheroes use their cars of good: Camp Quality esCarpade 2017

Camp Quality esCarpade is Australia’s happiest and wackiest motoring adventure! The week-long journey is held to raise money to support Aussie kids impacted by cancer.

Camp Quality esCarpade is a seven-day automotive fundraising event, now in its 26th year. Each year around 75 participant vehicles and 15 Official (support) vehicles help raise $1.4 million for Camp Quality.

The course changes every year and in 2017 will start in Port Macquarie on Sunday 22 October and travel through Walcha, Armidale, Glen Innes, Grafton, Alstonville, Tweed Heads, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Gympie, Kingaroy and Crows Nest before finishing in Toowoomba on Saturday 28 October.

esCarpade is an “Outback Motoring Adventure’” and is NOT a rally / speed event. At no stage are roads closed or participants required to drive at speed. Support vehicle roles include 1 x Ambulance, 3 x first aid, 4 x mobile workshop, fun stop, logistics, check in / check out & puppeteers etc.
