Jax Tyres & Auto’s Gosford franchisee Peter Bonvino is revving up to enter this spring’s Shitbox Rally to help the Cancer Council achieve its $2m fundraising target.

Bonvino and his co-driver, brother-in-law and paramedic Nathan Metcalfe, will attempt to complete the daunting 2,500km journey from Port Douglas to Adelaide. The journey will take them across some of Australia’s most unforgiving roads and through towns including Einasleigh, Winton, Windorah, Birdsville, Marree, and Rawnsley Park.

Jax head office is backing the pair, branding themselves Sons of AnaCamry, with a $2,500 donation.

All donations to the of $100 or more, will allow the donor to have the name of a loved-one lost to cancer inscribed on the car.

Bonvino said “I lost my mother-in-law, Erin’s mum, to cancer back when our two little girls were one and two years old. Nathan just recently lost his close friend, Michael, who he’d known since the age of 10.

“As well as helping to prevent future deaths, we want to honour the memory of people who’ve sadly already lost their lives to cancer, and we would consider it a huge privilege to carry the names of lost loved-ones with us as we fly the flag for Gosford.”
