Shitbox Rally returning
Overwhelmed by its inaugural success in New Zealand, James Freeman, founder of Box Rallies, has announced that the Shitbox Rally New Zealand will return in February 2017. The event sees cars worth less than $1700 take teams through some of the country’s most picturesque and arduous roads, all to raise money for the Cancer Society 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 on a seven-day round trip from Christchurch.
Cars will be sourced from Manheim Auctions by the Box Rallies team and auctioned off in a private event the day before the Shitbox Rally begins, opening up registration to anyone from anywhere to participate.
With no need to source your own car, teams can focus on their fundraising and readying themselves for the adventure ahead. Teams must raise a minimum of $4500 to take part in the rally.
Registrations are now open, so if you’re brave enough, register at shitboxrally.co.nz.
