Hundreds of cars rally together for good cause

BEHIND the wheel of his 1980 XD Ford Falcon ute The St George Dragon, Sno Harm admits he's still a young hoon at heart.

"There's obviously still a bit of hoon in me left from my younger days," he told The Balonne Beacon.

"This is my 21st charity car rally... I warn everyone who comes on the rallies with me that they have to be prepared for dust and getting dusty."

The 69-year-old cotton farmer is one of 200 drivers and riders across 70 cars who are hitting the backroads in the name of charity.

On day eight of the 10-day, 4250km Road Boss Rally, Mr Harm and his fellow riders stopped in St George, enjoying lunch put on by the P&C parents as they continue their ride for charity.

A major fundraiser for GIVIT, the rally last year raised $250,000.

En route from Cowra to the Sunshine Coast, the entrants were on their way to Nindigully, before heading northeast to Kingaroy and the final destination of Caloundra, where they are due to arrive tomorrow.

Coming along for the ride this year were three members of Bondi Rescue aboard their ute The Bondi Beast.

A GIVIT media spokesman said the Road Boss was not your ordinary rally.

"It's dubbed the 'Road Boss' for fearlessly taking participants where most rally organisers wouldn't dare go."
