CRAZY colours, outrageous cars and bubbly personalities are the perfect ingredients to make up the Cystic Fibrosis Great Escape.

Celebrating its 10th year on the road, the annual car rally will see about 50 vehicles stop in Emerald at 4.30pm tomorrow.

Participants of the challenge take old, bold and weird cars for the rally and it's all in the name of raising much needed funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.

To get behind the cause, get down to the Maraboon Tavern from 4pm to watch the first cars roll in. The rally will leave the Tavern from about 7.30am on Friday.
