Event FAQs

Due to changing Covid-19 and Lock down restrictions we are currently working to confirm the date for 2021’s event.

Registrations prices for trucks or bikes in 2021 will be released closer to the event date. Our launch date will be in October 2021 and once the event status is confirmed registrations will be opened

LEAD TRUCK AUCTION

If you are interested in participating in the auction, the rules are as follows:

To be a part of the auction and in ‘The Lead Truck Pack’ a minimum bid of $1,000 is required. Each bid is paid by the company or person, even if outbid by another person or company. This will get you ONE truck in the pack.

If you’d like more than one truck in the lead pack, then you need to bid $1,000 per truck up to FIVE trucks.

Anything over five trucks (or a $5,000 bid) is considered a company and you can enter as many trucks (within reason) from the ONE COMPANY as you like.

Your vehicles will be placed in order down the line based on the amount on money you have bid / donated to the i98fm Illawarra Convoy.

PLEASE NOTE: If you plan on bidding in the auction, you MUST still register your truck / trucks with convoy by filling out an application form and paying the $30 registration fee.

LEAD BIKE AUCTION

To be a part of the auction and in ‘The Lead Bike Pack’ a minimum bid of $1,000 is required. Each bid is paid by the company or person, even if outbid by another person or company. Bidding starts at $1,000 and the person or company with highest bid, will have the opportunity to have 20 bikes ride at the front of the Convoy in a lead pack that will be separated by Police from the rest of the bikes participating in the event.
