The Midnight Trial, organised by the Victorian Sporting Car Club, was held on the Night of July 8yth and 9th.
This was the second annual Midnight Trial, one of only a handful of night trials held in an era when most trials ran in daylight.
Directed by Doug Whiteford and Maurie Monk, the event attracted 51 entries of which only 21 finished. Winners were Cec Warren and Arthur Lidsey in an Austin A40 who lost no points.
The event was considered one of the toughest at the time with many crews succumbing to fords with deep water.
