It was a dominating performance by Geoff Portman and Ross Runnalls to win the inaugural Victorian Trials Championship with five wins from six events entered.
Bill Bennett and Stuart Lister also performed well with a win and three second places to place second in the championship.
Consistency and a strong second place in class in the final round saw Bill Johnston and Chris Maniatakis win the Grade 2 Award narrowly from Peter Hurrey and Keith Newby, who won the Clubman Award.
