Event Report – Cohuna (40th Anniversary of Pylon Racing).

I was great to be back racing at Cohuna once again after a break of a year to celebrate 40 year of this great club hosting pylon racing in Victoria. The VMPRA has always regarded the Cohuna Club as the home of pylon racing.

We had a good turn-out of competitors including the interstate guys from South Australia & New South Wales and we were blessed with terrific weather. Lots of club members, locals, photographers and even a local councilor visited to watch proceedings.

The Cohuna club was so supportive of this event that we had enough helpers to run a 10 lap course rather that the usual 10.5 laps. There were some very fast times and even an Australian record for F400 was broken by Shaun Jacobsen with a 61.60 sec.
