2019 Kidney Kar Rally

2019 Kidney Kar rally 


The route

Port Macquarie to Armidale via Capricorn Coast, 9 – 17 August 2019

New friends

This will be the 31st consecutive Kidney Kar Rally and is guaranteed to be one of the greatest holidays of your lifetime! We'll introduce you to many new friends who are all participating for not only a great time but to support a good cause.

Rally for a cause

By joining the 2019 Kidney Kar Rally you'll make a difference to children affected by kidney disease. Funds raised support Kidney Health Australia's Kidney Kids Camps, which allow children with kidney disease to enjoy fun filled days of camps and activities whilst still receiving the necessary life-saving medical care.

Who can enter?

Entrants come from across Australia and rally in all types of vehicles, not just rally class. Any registered road vehicle can take part. The rally caters to everyone, regardless of age or driving experience. 

Whilst there’s camaraderie between participants, the Rally is competitive and organised by individuals who have rallied competitively for most of their lives. It's not a race, but a test of skill, and is designed to allow the novice and the experienced to participate on a level playing field. 

If you’d like to join our next Rally or would like more information, phone Road Director, John Paine, on freecall 1300 300 544, or email kidneykarrally@kidney.org.au to receive an information pack.  To be best prepared for the adventure, we recommend you register before April. 


Kar definitions

Rally – These kars compete in the Rally section and follow the course that has been set by the organisers.

Kruise – These kars stay on the better roads (bitumen where possible) and meet up with everyone for meals and overnight stops. Kruise kars are not allowed to travel through the rally course at any time.

Back-up – These kars are optional and can be nominated by a rally entrant to travel as their support vehicle. Back-ups are allowed to travel through the rally course, but only at the back of the field.

Vehicle requirements

To make certain that your kar is ‘ready to rally’, read the updated Kidney Kar Rally Vehicle Requirements here.

All vehicles participating in the Rally must adhere to certain vehicle requirements, whether they be rally, cruise or back-up entrants. All other requirements and information will be in your Kidney Kar Rally Entry Pack, which you will receive on registration.
