Truckies to celebrate the life of Dane Ballinger

KLOS Custom Trucks have found a great way to honour truckie Dane Ballinger, who died in a horror crash on the Pacific Highway last week.

They will be launching decals and t-shirts at the Clarendon Klassic on September 21.

"100 percent of the proceeds of these are going to the family," Justin Klos wrote on Facebook last night.

"I'll keep you a little more posted when they're done. From the bottom of my heart I say thanks to everyone who has reached out."

Dane's family will have the decals on their trucks tomorrow, during his funeral service at 220 Bentick St, Bathurst at 10.30am for an 11am start.

The burial, to be held at the Bathurst Lawn Cemetery, will be followed by a celebration of Dane's life at Mount Panorama Pit Complex from 1pm.

A convoy will leave the service led by Dane's trucks, with everyone else to follow.

Led by a police escort to Mount Panorama, they will complete one lap around the circuit.
