A lemon. A rust bucket. A pile of junk. And more than 150 other similarly rundown shitboxes will be hitting the road on May 19 from Brisbane to hopefully finish in Darwin on May 25 for the Shitbox Rally 2018, raising money for cancer research.

Representing the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston City for the 3800km trip is Team Funsize – electrician Josh Carlson, plumber Sam Tyson and their $250 Hyundai Excel.

When – not if – your shitbox breaks down, it’s up to your team and your buddy group of six other teams to rally together to fix it. If that’s an impossible feat, the volunteer support crews with qualified mechanics will help you attempt to get your car over the line. Cars that make it are auctioned off, with all the money going to the Cancer Council.

“The rally isn’t actually a race; rather, it’s a challenge to achieve the unthinkable,” said Sam.

“Sam does a lot of four-wheel driving and we both do a lot of trips into the bush to trail bike ride and four-wheel drive,” said Josh. “But I think it will be a bit different in a 2WD hatchback Hyundai.”

Since the first event in 2010, the Shitbox Rally has raised $11.9 million for cancer research. Sam and Josh would love to raise $10,000 to add to the 2018 tally. You can follow their progress on Instagram @team.funsize or donate or become a sponsor by visiting
