Pakenham drivers should warm up their engines.
The internationally renowned wacky driving adventure Bust Rally is coming to Australia and organisers are inviting the area’s drivers to raise much-needed funds for charity.
The rally is not a race in the traditional sense, but will see participants partaking in crazy challenges and hijinks on a journey from Geelong to the Barossa valley.
The Barossa or Bust rally will see participants driving cars costing less than $1000 to amazing locations on some of the world’s best driving roads.
The journey will take three days with overnight stops in Warrnambool and Mildura and limited driving hours so drivers get the most out of their trip.
This is the inaugural Bust Rally in Australia, and the team behind the fun and wacky race is encouraging people from all over the state to get involved.
“Bust Rallies have united thousands of active, fun-seeking individuals, and with its challenges, silliness and unique team-focused ethos, camaraderie and thrills, we have no doubt that the Barossa of Bust will provide a memorable experience for drivers from Pakenham,” managing director of Bust Rallies Australia Stuart Chesneau said.
Participating teams are encouraged to fund-raise for a charity of their choice with the race scheduled for 12-14 October.
