This was the third and last REDeX Round Australia Trial, which circumnavigated Australia in a clockwise direction.
The event was organised by the Australian Sporting Car Club with a committee comprising Dan MacFarlane, Gordon McColl, Norman Pleasence, B. Middleton and Des Pinn.
Close to 200 cars entered the event which penalised entrants for changing parts on their vehicles as well as for lateness at controls. Penalties were also incurred for damage evident at the finish. For example, eighth placed Bill Edmonds was penalised 250 points for radiator damage, without which they would have finished sixth, while the tenth placed Mercury of Francis McMahon was penalised 500 points for structural damage, without which they would have finished fourth.
Although Sydney based, the top two placings were Volkswagens from Victorian crews with Laurie Whitehead and Bob Foreman winners.
