Shitbox Rally is a car race started five years ago in Australia that has since raised over 4.4 million Australian dollars for cancer research. This year, 75 teams took go to the starting line on February 12, in New Zealand for the first time. The video security product manufacturer Geutebruck takes part.
Geutebruck Pacific is sponsoring the “Super Nut Jobs” team, which has so far collected the most donations with $20,000 and is thus considered the clear favorite. Anthony Brooks, CEO of Geutebruck Pacific, says: “We wish our team of Craig and Gavin a successful race! The Shitbox Rally is quite simply a fun event. I love the idea that this extraordinary race raises money for cancer research.”
The rally concept: Each team (of two people) buys a vehicle, which must not be cost more than $1000 (AUD) – hence the name “Shitbox”. Before the race, the vehicles are auctioned between the teams: The team that has collected the most money leading up to the race wins the best vehicle. Hence the Geutebruck team, the “Super Nut Jobs” has the best of chances to win the race!
The Shitbox Rally lasts nine days, starting in Auckland. The route leads over the North Island of New Zealand: past beaches, volcanoes, mountain passes and rugged trails. After the rally the vehicles are sold, and these proceeds also go to cancer research. Geutebruck will provide updates on its team, the “Super Nut Jobs” on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/geutebrueckgmbh.
