Vic Country Series Round 1 – Portland

The opening round of the revamped 6-round Victorian Country Series was held at Portland on March 6 with 147 entries on the day.

The weather during Saturday’s practice left a lot to be desired with patchy, heavy showers between sunshine and a dry track. This made the huge undercover horse arena an ideal place to pit. Race day dawned overcast but dry and continued to improve throughout the day. Whilst the track was initially slow, as the higher performance classes started to lay down some rubber, the times improved across all classes to be close to normal race times.

All in all it was a great day with clean, close racing in all classes.
