You’re doing what?!
Shitbox Rally was originally founded in Australia and in 2016 we ran the rally for the first time internationally, with New Zealand as our chosen location.
New Zealand is not as vast as Australia
so it does not take as long to get off the beaten track, but the roads,
locations, mountain passes and terrain are completely unique and will be
highly challenging for both teams and their Shitbox.
Shitbox is not a race, it is 100% a challenge to test cars worth no more than NZ$1,700 over vast distances and variable terrain over a full week all in the name of charity.
This rally is for those that want to have an adventure, that crave something different, something memorable, but most importantly, it’s for those who want to raise much needed money for charity.
Many of us have been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether it be parents, family, close friends, people we know or ourselves that have battled or are battling cancer, this all too common and the horrid disease has touched us all. We not only want to raise awareness and money for our chosen charity, but we want to be able to offer support and a friendly ear to those that have suffered or are suffering.
This event is a fundraiser for, and officially endorsed by the Cancer Council (Australia) and Cancer Society (NZ).
