To enter:
(a) During the Registration Period listeners will be directed by on air cues to register on the website and nominate what item they are willing to swap for Top Gear tickets (“Entry”).

(b) At the commencement of the Contesting Day the Promoter will select two Entries at random to go head to head on air with what they will swap (“Contesting Segment”) and the listeners will vote which listener has the “top gear” to swap by texting the name of the item to 1 999 1051 (“Vote”). Opening and closing times of the receipt of votes will be at the discretion of the Promoter.

(c) After each Contesting Segment the listener who receives the most SMS votes will move to the next Contesting Segment and at the end of the Contesting Day the listener who is deemed to have the “top gear” in the final Contesting Segment will win a prize. The accuracy of the polling results received and published by the Promoter is final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.

(d) Each listener who submits a vote for the “top gear” via SMS on any Contesting Day will go into the draw to win the prize.

(e) The prize winner is required to bring their item they registered to swap in their Entry into the Triple M offices to hand to the Promoter. The Promoter will then take possession of the item and will not return it to the prize winner. Any prize winner who cannot produce the item they registered to swap in their Entry will forfeit the prize and will be disqualified.
