Pit Stop is a health awareness-raising program designed to target rural men by using a mechanical theme to market and conduct health screen tests in a non-medical environment.

GP Connections, Toowoomba ran a Pit Stop program at FarmFest near Toowoomba, Queensland during 1st to 3rd June, 2010. FarmFest is a three-day agricultural field day known to attract a large number of rural men. GP Connections wished to target rural men so purchased a site at FarmFest.

The University of Queensland and the University of Southern Queensland were commissioned to conduct an independent evaluation of the FarmFest, Toowoomba 2010 Pit Stop.

In order to ascertain the effectiveness of FarmFest 2010 Pit Stop, the following evaluation questions were examined:

1. Do men use the Pit Stop program?
2. Does Pit Stop provide a comfortable environment for a health check?
3. Does it increase men's knowledge about their health?
4. Does it assist men to change their health behaviour?
