2019 Shitbox Rally Sponsorship

  • Post published:May 22, 2019


We wish to congratulate Banlaw team member Mark Fretwell and co-driver Adam Jelenic on their successful completion of the 2019 Shitbox Rally!

Mark and Adam’s fundraising efforts have contributed towards the $2,536,685 this event raised for cancer research. Adam’s son Aidan was diagnosed with Leukemia early in life, and this motivated the two friends to make tangible contributions towards cancer prevention and cure.

Over 10 days the pair drove from Perth in Western Australia, to Sydney in New South Wales via Uluru. 5,150km on some of the country’s toughest desert roads. They dealt with alternator failure, fuel problems, and even drove 100km on dirt tracks AFTER the rear suspension had been destroyed! These gents made it home shaken but not stirred, and despite the challenges always drove into camp under their own power.

Banlaw was delighted to support the cause.
