Cancer is a b*tch .... we've all felt its impact and had it take away a loved family member or friend too early in life. We've joined this rally because we have been impacted and wanted to help support critical research that one day, hopefully not too long from now, will find a way to eradicate its scourge.
Yes we're doing it again !!! Sunday Drivers are back for their 4th rally and the trusty Peugeot 505 GTI its 5th - clearly we are suckers for punishment
After the cancellation of the 2020 and the then rescheduled 2021 events due to pandemic mayhem, the third time's a charm and we're ready to take part in Shitbox Rally 2021 Spring which oddly will see us travel in March 2022 from Hay NW to Adelaide and not the original Mackay to Darwin route.
This event we have Darwin local Ray Pratt stepping into the Sunday Drivers team as our rookie. If you didn't already know Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year.
All funds raised go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, on a 7 day drive across Australia 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 $26 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:
