Jarryd and Ryan are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in the Shitbox Rally 2019!! This spring, we will be driving our Shitbox (to be found and named) from Melbourne to Townsville, via Birdsville... Thats a car worth less than $1000 driving for 3500+ km's on a bunch of dirt roads and neither of us are mechanics!! :-S
The Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and has a target of raising $2,000,000+ on this rally. Jarryd and I are stoked to be a part of this and really want to do our best to raise as much money as possible for the Cancer Council!!
We will be donating both our time and our money to meet our goal of $5000 and would be hugely thankful to anyone who is in a position to be able to help us on our way by making a donation to this great cause!!
Our wheels of choice is the Hatchback of Notre Dame aka a 1992 Peugeot 205 Auto. Kitted out with a fresh Le Mons-style chequered flag paint job, Quasi clocks about 20sec 0-100km/h (down from 25sec...). Finally roadworthy and debatably running better than when we purchased him...
Wish us luck!!

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, this year for the 10th year anniversary rally, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour to raise money for cancer research.
The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.
Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.
