Get revving for 2019 Road Boss Rally

Cowra residents are invited on Monday, July 8, to meet a team from TV's Bondi Rescue and view the 70 character vehicles who are all taking part in the 2019 Road Boss Rally.

The iconic Aussie charity car rally will be flagged off from the Cowra Golf Club at 8am on Tuesday, July 9, but before that the rally cars and lifesavers Corey, Reidy and Whippet will gather next Monday at 4pm at St Raphael's Church carpark in Liverpool St for a public meet and greet.

From the Cowra starting line, the rally cars will head to Mt Hope for their first night.

Then it's off through remote NSW to White Cliffs, Packsaddle, Tibooburra, crossing the Queensland border for Noccundra, Thargomindah, Noorama, Nindigully, Kingaroy and the finish line at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast on July 18.

The 10-day 4,250km rally is a major fundraiser for GIVIT and last year it raised $250,000 for the national online charity.

Joining this year's rally will be the three members of the popular TV show who will swap the beach for bulldust.

An accompanying film production team will shoot a documentary of the Bondi crew's adventures during the rally.

Along the rally route, the Road Boss Rally and GIVIT will deliver requested and vital donations to drought-affected communities, while spreading a welcome financial boost to remote towns.

Dubbed "the Road Boss" for fearlessly taking participants where most rally organisers wouldn't dare go, founder and organiser Jamie Lawson said the rally would travel across some of the most challenging backroads across outback NSW and Queensland to the Sunshine Coast.

The 150 drivers and crew from across Australia are looking forward to some amazing adventures led by Mr Lawson whose family have been organised rallies for 30 years.

He and his father Allan have raised an estimated $20 million for charities in that time.

Mr Lawson said the Road Boss Rally would also live up to its mantra of "driving to make a difference" by helping communities along the way.

"It's not just the tens of thousands of dollars that the rally participants spend along the way in remote towns that are doing it tough but the fact we team with GIVIT to find out exactly what's needed in the communities we visit. Rally entrants and GIVIT will help these communities get what they need."

GIVIT's Founder and Director Juliette Wright said the RBR had raised a staggering $764,000 for GIVIT over the past three years.

"The Road Boss Rally allows GIVIT to do what we do best, helping some of Australia's most impoverished people,'' Mrs Wright said.

"This year, with the amazingly generous support of Jamie and the Road Boss Rally crew, GIVIT has been able to provide more than 222,000 vital items for Queensland residents recovering after devastating floods and support communities across NSW in the ongoing drought.''

Mr Lawson and his wife Michelle spend several months before every rally mapping out routes, gaining property owner approval and organising catering, often a vital fundraising avenue for local CWAs or P&C groups.
