A LITTLE bit of family pride is on the line for Gol Gol’s Hederics family at next month’s Sunraysia Safari Cross Country Rally.

Run utilising properties in the Wentworth, Pooncarie and Mildura regions, the safari is the largest cross-country rally in Australia with a competitive distance of about 15,000km in total over the five days.

For the first time, 10-time Australian Safari champion John Hederics will compete at the same event as two of his sons, 23-year-old Toby and 27-year-old Beau.

“It’ll be really cool, this will be the first event that all three of us will be in,” Toby said.
