VRWC Results: Winter Seasons 1991 -1998

VRWC Logo



The VRWC Winter Season occurs between April and September and covers the Australian winter. Conditions are generally superb for road walking with mild winter temperatures, fast courses and lots of competition for all age groups.

From 1962, VRWC had its own clubrooms on the city side of Albert Park lake and large fields contested the regular winter weekend walks. When the Kennett Govt was elected in Victoria in 1993, this changed due to the subsequent awarding of the Formula 1 Grand Prix to Melbourne. With the first race scheduling in 1996, some serious Albert Park redevelopment kicked off and, alas, our clubrooms were demolished in early 1995. During the next twelve months, various options for accommodation and race circuits were offered but all were found wanting. After discussions with the MPBC Executive, our first race meeting was held at this venue on 21st January 1996. Following the success of that day, formal agreements were drawn up with MPBC and, in March 1996, the former caretaker's residence, now renamed Robinson Hall, became the new headquarters of the V.R.W.C.  The turmoil of the previous few years and the lack of a viable home course had wreaked havoc with the club and racing numbers were now small. A period of rebuilding was now needed and it was not until some years later that the club regained critical mass. This can be seen in the numbers racing from 1995 onwards.
