1965 Experts Trial

The Experts Trial, organised by the Light Car Club of Australia, was held on July 3.

VTC Round 3 – 1965 LCCA Experts Trial

From the comments in August Unicar, this was a typical Experts – Forty sections, plus twenty checkpoints, muddy roads, and excuses for roads, and the need for high pressure, precise navigation.
Directed by Bruce Ford, it was Geoff Thomas, navigating for Reg Lunn, who came out on top. Twelve of the 31 starters did not finish, mostly out of late time.

Results and entry list

Provisional results placed Roberts and Haas 8th but they appear to have been promoted to fifth, perhaps as a result of a protest.
