Kidney Kar Rally – August 2019
Kidney Health Australia are running their annual Kidney Kar Rally where rally teams travel thousands of kilometres across the beautiful Australian countryside with one ambition – to change the lives of children and young people affected by kidney disease.
The rally is not a race but a test of skills. It is for those who want to have an adventure with mates who crave something different, something memorable, but most importantly, it’s for those who want to raise much needed money for kids who do it rough.
Following the traditions of the Australian reliability trials from the 1970s, the Kidney Kar Rally is the best way to enjoy time travelling with fellow rally car lovers through stunning Australian scenery.
When: Friday 09 Aug 2019 – Saturday 17 Aug 2019.
Where: Port Macquarie to Armidale via Capricorn Coast.
Price: From $275 per vehicle and $1,200 per person
The Vehicle and Participant entry fees paid on registration covers the cost of delivering the Kidney Kar Rally. That’s why we ask participants to fundraise as well, so the funds donated go towards Kidney Kids programs.
