Before hitting the road

Truck registration will begin at 6am until 8.30am at the Ford administration car park on National Boulevard in Campbellfield where you will receive your number and show bag for the event.

Heavy vehicles are permitted to park in the left lane of National Boulevard and the service roads (do not block access) while light vehicles/rigids can use the Ford car park in a sensible manner. There is an entry and exit.

Organisers want to stress the importance of respecting the Ford car park, meaning take your rubbish with you!

Amore Coffee van and Meltdown Toasties will be parked nearby for some much needed brekky before the long haul.

Every driver MUST be gone by 9am at the latest.

While on the road

Seymour route has changed, DO NOT go past the weigh bridge.

Please use the over dimension route as the rail bridge is closed on the Seymour/Avenal rd. All drivers will receive a flyer at the start with instructions for this.

Don’t follow the bus, they will be going direct to Winton to set up for check in for late entries.

In Winton, if you do not have a number or your receipt (because you haven’t checked in yet) you can only park in the public parking.

Organisers stress that you will not get your truck in the Winton display if you have not entered. Benalla CFA will be checking registrations and are keeping a close eye on those who try to sneak in.

Chiltern also has a change of route as there is an off the grid show at the racecourse and Wenke rd is closed, again check your route change flyer in your entry goodies.

Arriving in Albury

When arriving at Albury Racecourse the bar will be open and dinner will be served at 6.30pm with a guest speaker and raffle.

Sunday morning breakfast will be from 7am and don’t forget daylight savings CHANGE YOUR CLOCK!

Presentations and a bit of a talk will be held around 9-9.30 and then the rest of the day is yours!
