1982 VRC Round 4 – CCRMIT Rich River Rally

Simon Brown directed his second Rich River Rally in the Murray River forests around Echuca.

It was a commanding performance by Geoff Portman, navigated by Derek Rawson, who was almost six minutes clear of the previous year’s winner, Hugh Bell. Chris Brown and Noel Richards were a further two minutes back in third, but maintained their lead in this year’s VRC.
