We just love cars. We also love rallying cars. Fixing cars is also awesome. Did we mention that we love cars? The Shitbox Rally gives us a chance to combine our love of cars with fundraising for cancer research.
Our team is named after the greatest story ever told - the documentary of legendary NASCAR driver Cole Trickle. Our cars are painted in the same colour scheme as his cars because we think he is the greatest driver. Ever.
Cancer sux. It took the lives of Hugh Williamson's dad and Cliff Wheatley's mum. We're taking revenge on cancer by pumping more money into ways to prevent it, cure it and make the lives of sufferers better.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, 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."
Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.
Cancer Council is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. We conduct and fund research studies across all cancers and all stages of the cancer journey.
Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.
Over $13 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
