1952 Shepparton Day Trial

We think this was probably a closed event. Organised by the Shepparton Car Club, it was described as an “English type” trial. It was conducted on June 22nd.

 There were only seven starters, and six became lost on the first section! Winner was Rex Roberts, navigated by Miss N. Carroll in a Ford V8.
