2021 Crappy Car Class2020-07-31T17:11:13+02:00


Have you always wondered what it would feel like following your wanderlust while contributing to a great cause?

The 2020 Edition Put Foot Rally

Introducing a Brand New Put Foot Vehicle Class



Imagine driving a Crappy Car* over 8000km / 5000 miles across 6 Southern African countries in just 18 days with your friends, all while experiencing the magic of the 2020 Put Foot Rally…

*A Crappy Car is an old-school, well-used car with a ton of character. In South Africa, we call these often-classic cars “Golden Skadonks”:

“In South African English, the word “skadonk” is colloquially used to describe an old car that is usable, but nearing the end of its lifespan. It is onomatopoeic with the sound that such a car would make as it goes over a bump, skah-donhk!”

Discover the once-in-a-lifetime journey, traverse untouched Africa and carve your own incredible adventure!

The best Africa has to offer! The best vibe, the best people, the best party, the best travel adventure in the Southern Hemisphere at the very least and by far the best adventure experience of my life… round 2: begin…

Best road trip ever. Amazing countries, scenery and vibe. You don’t need a big car or lots of gear or a big budget. I miss it every day…

Tarryn, 2017 and 2018 Put Foot Veteran

Did the rally this year with a few good friends, and what an epic trip it was. From the adventures, scenery, drives to the wildest parties… and meeting the greatest people. This is a must do for anyone that has ever thought about Africa. I would do it all over again and again and again.

We Need Your Help For A Good Cause…

Everyday in Southern Africa, thousands of school children walk to and from school without any foot protection. You might take the pair of shoes on your feet for granted, yet many African children have never had the fortune of owning a single pair of shoes, often walking 10’s of kilometres a day over harsh terrain totally barefoot.

The Put Foot Foundation exists to solve this problem.

Our goal is simple; give African school kids their first pair of shoes, and we plan to do that with your help, and in return you’ll experience the adventure of a lifetime…

So you’re interested in participating? Great!
Here’s who we’re looking for…

  1. You’re an avid traveler who embodies a true (and we really mean true) spirit of adventure.

  3. After the Put Foot Rally, you’re prepared to donate the car to Put Foot Foundation, who will then turn it into $ for school hundreds of pairs of school shoes!
