The VRC was keenly contested with seven different crews scoring wins across the seven events! Despite this, consistency proved the winning formula for Warwick Smith and Paul Paterson, who scored an outright win, an equal first and three second places to convincingly win the championship.
The Grade 2 award was also closely fought with four different winners across the first six rounds and four crews tied for the win on the final round. The award went to Ian and Noel Richards in a Datsun 1600, closely followed by Jim Uttleymoore/Tony Bond and Mick Ellis/Jim Maude, tied for second place.
