Our earliest records of a Two Day Trial were the 1960 edition.
As the name suggests, the event was often a fairly long affair spread over two days. In the early days it was run by the VW Car Club and by the mid 1960s jointly by the VW Car Club and the Victorian Amateur Drivers Club (VADC) which subsequently took over the event, probably from 1967.
The Two Day Trial often attracted good sponsorship and for several of the early years was the “Shell Two Day Trial”. It was a round of the inaugural Victorian Trails Championship in 1961 and was a VTC or VRC round for most years up to and including 1973, which was the last edition run.
The VADC calendared the Two Day Trial in both 1974 and 1975 with the goal of running a long non-championship open event, but sadly, it did not attract sufficient interest and both events were cancelled due to lack of entries.
