The 24th Annual Great Endeavour Rally is about to begin, and locals can be part of the action at the Brisbane Flag-Off this Friday (8 July).
More than 200 intrepid adventurers are drying duco, polishing chrome and revving engines on a wide assortment of rally cars for the big event.
Thirty will trek to Brisbane for Friday’s early morning Flag-Off, giving people the chance to inspect the rough and rugged rally cars, and meet the generous-hearted rally drivers and participants taking part to raise vital funds for Endeavour Foundation so the organisation can continue to provide vital services for people with a disability.
Minister for Disability Services, the Honourable Curtis Pitt MP and Endeavour Foundation clients will flag off the cars Friday morning.
Drivers will then make their way to Goondiwindi for the official start of the rally, traversing 3,500 kilometres en route to the Gold Coast, via the Golden West.
The adventurers will enjoy ten action-packed days on punishing off-road tracks through some of the most stunning and savage country outback Queensland has to offer; all while raising dust and dollars for people with a disability.
A community breakfast will start at 8am on Friday, and rally entrants will show-case infamous rally cars such as The Red Bull, The Flying Peanut, Jaffa, Vision Alert, Hammertime and first-time entrant Dyna Dog 2.
Long-time participant Norm Haupt in Car 17 Vision Alert is excited by the challenge of putting himself and his vehicle to the ultimate motoring test.
“The Great Endeavour is legendary as Australia’s toughest off-road rally event, and we have done a lot of work to get man and machine into shape for the ordeals ahead,” he said.
“Along the way, there’s a great deal of fun and camaraderie. At the end of the day, we are raising money for a very important charity.”
This year ten Endeavour Foundation clients will join the rally as participants of the Great Endeavour Cruise section. They will be accompanied by support workers and will experience first-hand the fun and camaraderie that is synonymous with the rally.
Funds raised help Endeavour Foundation support people with a disability in Queensland and New South Wales. The Big Brisbane Flag-Off and community breakfast is our opportunity to thank the community for supporting the Great Endeavour Rally and people with a disability.
