Shitbox Rally 2014 kicked off with a beautiful sunrise over Kings Park in Perth over 250 of the least fit vehicles to embark on the 4,200km journey to Darwin. We had nearly 800km to cover today, and all of it on sealed roads, so should have been easy, right? Burned out clutches and weak bladders dogged progress. We covered the first 300km in four hours and then bedded down some faster times once the team synchronised toilet stops. The road has been good so far and the Corrolla is just eating up the miles.
