The 1981 VRC was dominated by Geoff Portman and Ross Runnalls who won five of the six rounds. Runnalls did not compete in the Begonia as he was the Director but Portman struck problems and did not score.
David “Dinta” Officer and Kate Hobson were clear winners in Grade 2 taking three wins in their Galant. Second were Alex and Jan Fitcher with one win and a second.
In the Clubman division there were six different winners across the six rounds. Consistency proved to be the winning formula for Graeme Wise and Mark Brooke, who ran out clear Clubman winners in the VRC with one win, two seconds, a third and a fourth.
