It was a fiercely contested VRC in 1985 with six different event winners across the seven rounds. Admittedly two of those wins were from “part timers” Hugh Bell and Steve Ellis whose main focus was on the ARC. Another was from Geoff Portman and Peter “Twigger” Gale taking the Nissan Bluebird out for a run.
But in the end the championship was closely fought between Brian Smith and John Birrell in the Sigma and David Jones with Peter Curtain in the Commodore. While Jones took a victory in the Zodiac, Smith and Birrell took the championship by a mere 3 points despite having not scored a round win.
