Honda Motorcycles Australia have donated a 2024 Honda CRF50 worth $2,598 to the Hatto’s Sh$tbox Rally, so by donating to legend Tony Hatton and his daughter Peta for their rally fundraiser, you could be the lucky winner! Honda will arrange for the winner to receive the bike from their local dealership!

The CRF50 features a low 58.4cm seat height, an adjustable throttle limiter, a sturdy steel frame, a durable low maintenance four-stroke air-cooled motor, kick start, a three speed gearbox with an automatic clutch, chain drive, 10in wheels with knobbies, 6 months warranty, drum brakes, 87mm of front wheel travel and 70mm or rear wheel travel, has a 2.6L fuel capacity and weights 50kg.

“Our fundraising is going really well so far”, said Peta and Tony. “We’ve absolutely smashed the minimum $5,000 entry requirement, and our goal is now to raise $55,000 (Hatto’s racing number was 55!). We’ve had private donors, corporate sponsors and raffle sponsors. We had a really amazing raffle with a prize pool worth over $10,500 and sold 3,500 tickets. We’ve had so much support from businesses, it’s really fantastic. 

“We held a huge garage sale in March, at Hayley and Tony’s property in Bowral. We had a sausage sizzle, lucky dips, the raffle draw, and lots of garage sale items to buy. We raised $5,500 in one weekend. Wayne Gardner donated a number of signed jackets and a helmet, which we auctioned off and raised approximately $2,000.

“And now we have an amazing prize to give away, Honda Australia have generously donated us a CRF50F mini bike, worth $2,598. Tickets are $20 each, and purchased by donating at our link. The winner will be drawn when Tony and Peta arrive in Alice Springs on Friday 21st June”.

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…
