    Thanks Kev. Believe it or not this series of races ..80 years and 201 editions is the longest running race on grass tracks in Australia. I was hoping that it would be Australasi ( hence Southern Hemisphere) , but Peter Craig in NZ assures me that tracks like Methven and Winton have always raced on grass, and a look on www.classicfamilies.net confirms that.

    It's wordy, but we've all got plenty of time for a read !
