Brothers Ben and Michael Kavich aren’t two of Australia’s most famous racers, but their presence will be noticed this weekend at the Bathurst 6 Hour, as their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X will be decked out in pink and white to support breast cancer research.
Not content with just a show of support, the brothers are also raising money b offering sponsors a place on the car for their name, or the name of a loved one, to be displayed.
“It can be hard to know what to say to someone experiencing breast cancer so this is a way to show your loved one you’re thinking of them” Michael says.

“Despite wonderful advancements in medicine, too many people still die from breast cancer or endure painful treatments and we want to do our part to change this”, Ben adds.
“It’s trials research that leads to more lives saved.”
The Kavich brothers will also be joined by World Time Attack champion Garth Walden for the weekend, with Walden to take to the wheel for some of the six hours.
“With the strength of Garth Walden Racing’s car preparation along with solid driving and pit strategy, we hope to achieve a podium finish this year” Michael says.
Tax-deductible donations to the team, and therefore to Breast Cancer Trials, can be made at the website.
Chief Operating Officer for Breast Cancer Trials Julie Callaghan says the effort the team has gone to in support of the helping save lives.
“We’re truly grateful for the support of all those involved in Race for a Cure and we know it means so much to those who will benefit from the research this initiative is helping to make possible.”
