Shit­box Rally Is open

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

Over­whelmed by its in­au­gu­ral suc­cess in New Zealand, James Free­man, founder of Box Ral­lies, has an­nounced that Shit­box Rally NZ is re­turn­ing in Fe­bru­ary 2017, with reg­is­tra­tions open for 100 teams to join the chal­lenge.

In cars worth less than $1,700 (all road­wor­thy, reg­is­tered and insured), Shit­box Rally NZ will take teams through some of the coun­try’s most pic­turesque and ar­du­ous roads, all to raise money for the Can­cer So­ci­ety of New Zealand.

Kick­ing off in the South Is­land, 200 par­tic­i­pants will bring a new thun­der­ous el­e­ment to the moun­tains as they drive through un­for­get­table lo­ca­tions in the land of the long white cloud, on a seven-day round trip from Christchurch. The rally will start on Fe­bru­ary 25 2017 and fin­ish on March 4.

Cars will be sourced by Man­heim with the Box Ral­lies team and auc­tioned off in a pri­vate event the day be­fore Shit­box Rally NZ be­gins, open­ing up reg­is­tra­tion for any­one from any­where to par­tic­i­pate.

The idea is sim­ple – just bid for one of the shit­boxes on of­fer on 24th Fe­bru­ary 2017 based on your fundraising amount, then take 24 hours to dec­o­rate your ride and drive away in your dream shit­box when the con­voy leaves.

“Many of us have been af­fected by can­cer in one way or an­other. Shit­box Rally is a unique way of bring­ing the com­mu­nity to­gether to com­bat the cause, raise aware­ness and sup­port the Can­cer So­ci­ety of NZ. Given the in­cred­i­ble up­take in our first Shit­box Rally NZ, it’s time to an­nounce the next chal­lenge, this time tak­ing to the South­ern Alps and val­leys of the South Is­land. The rally brings to­gether like-minded peo­ple that oth­er­wise may never meet, in ad­ven­ture all for a good cause,” says James Free­man. Teams must raise a min­i­mum of $4,500 to be in Shit­box Rally NZ.
