The 1975 VRC was won by David Bond and Ian Richards with three wins and two second places. The previous year’s champions, Garry Harrowfield and Geoff Boyd, placed second with two wins while David Hodge/Mick Brasier and Gil Davis/Peter Haas took a win apiece.
The 1975 VRC was significant for a number of “firsts”. Round 5 the Experts Trial in 1975 was the first to utilise the Puckapunyal Army Base for a fully route charted daylight division with timing to the tenth of a minute.
The next round, the North Eastern, saw George Fury and Monty Suffern debut the 710 Datsun, as a shakedown for the Southern Cross Rally. However, David Bond and Ian Richards won the North Eastern in their Lancer to secure the 1975 VRC Championship.
