GoGet has joined forces with two local Sydney businesses as they prepare for The Shitbox Rally, the largest private Cancer Council fundraiser in Australia.
The Internets is led by Matt Griffin and David McGowan, owners of two of Australia’s leading Communications and Innovation Consultancies based in Surry Hills. With the help from our technology and team, they will be building a completely ‘connected car’ – a first of its kind.
‘Mignon’ their 14 year old Holden Commodore which was purchased for less than $1000 as part of the rally mandatories, will be driven by the team from Darwin to Perth via the Kimberley while being monitored, controlled and interacted with via a website. The car will be ‘always on’ via 3G and Satellite connectivity, with the aim of raising funds during the race for Cancer Council through pledges.
