It was a hotly contested year with different winners in most of the rounds. Reigning champions Roberts and Haas won the first round, the Derrick in an X2 Holden, Reg Lunn and Geoff Thomas won the Classic, also in a Holden X2, then Ron Phillips and Jim McAuliffe won the Akademos in a similar car. Brian Amey and Tony Wunderlich found success in their Peugeot on the North Eastern Trial while the Vaughan brothers, Ian and Roger, won their first state championship event on the final round, the Cooper Memorial.
Reg Lunn secured the driver’s title with a third place in the second last round, the North Eastern, but his regular navigator, Mike Osborne, had been unavailable for several events. So the navigator’s title was undecided until the final round, where the Vaughan brothers’ win gave Roger Vaughan the title.
