Help racing legend Tony Hatton and daughter Peta raise money to find a cure for cancer through Hatto's Shitbox Rally.

What is Hatto’s Shitbox Rally? It’s a fundraising drive. Cancer affects all of us in some way, directly or indirectly. We all need to contribute to finding a cure, particularly when kids are involved. Tony Hatton and daughter Peta Isaac are doing their bit in respect for legendary industry family, the Galvins, in support of their daughter Lucy Galvin. You can help, too…

With a huge career spanning three decades, very few racers in the history of Australian motorcycle racing have clipped as many apexes as Tony Hatton. His interest in bikes started as young as 12, when the Northern Beaches Sydney kid was already subscribing to Motorcycle News… and by 14 he was riding his pushbike up to Terrey’s Green in Terrey Hills to watch the motorcycle racing. The rest is history, as they say, and Hatto went on to have a huge career as a rider, tuner and mentor, winning all the big races that Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan and Kevin Magee would go on to win.

Now enjoying retirement but still riding on the roads for fun, Tony Hatton is working on a special race with his daughter Peta, and will be taking part in the Shitbox Rally Winter 2024. The dynamic duo will be driving their 10-owner 260,000km young 2004 Honda Accord ‘Goldie Horn’ in the 4500km trek from Bowral, NSW, to Melbourne then from 15 June head northwest through the outback to Alice Springs.

Peta’s mum, Tony’s legendary wife Hayley Hatton, has been working flat out with the team raising money and awareness and they have loads of fantastic stuff for sale, and let’s face it, you can just never have enough stuff! But what is also very cool is the huge raffle that will be taking place on the day. If you donate now, you go into the draw for Hatto’s Shitbox Raffle, or if you can, head to Bowral on 23 or 24 March, enjoy a barbecue and shopping, and on the Saturday buy a ticket for $5 while you are there watching the draw live!
