The Djerriwarrah Rally, organised by the Melton Motor Sports Club, was held on November 2.
1985 VTC Round 6 – MMSC Melton Toyota Djerriwarrah Rally
The Djerriwarrah, directed by Noel Cutler, ran in its traditional Wombat Forest area. It saw the return of Geoff Portman to the VRC in his Nissan Bluebird, with Peter Gale (Twigger) calling the corners. In one of the few successes in the Bluebird, Portman was victorious by less than a minute from Brian Smith and John Birrell. Their second place lifted them into the championship lead by a single point ahead of Jones and Curtain who failed to finish.
