1953 REDeX Trial

The 1953 REDeX Trial was organised by the Australian Sporting Car Club.

Start: Sydney Showgrounds, Sunday August 30th

Finish: Sydney Showgrounds, September 13th.

This was the first REDeX around Australia Trial, although there was a two day REDeX Trial in 1952. This edition was a half around Australia as it did not go to Western Australia.

This first round Australia trial attracted a big field of 186 cars of which 142 finished.

The winners were Ken Tubman and John Marshall in a Peugeot 203. Tubman went on to other successes, including winning the 1974 World Cup Rally with Jim Reddiex.
