There were nineteen entries for this
race which was held on Port Phillip Island in March, 1931. The winning car, an Austin
Seven, had won the Brooklands 500-mile race five months earlier when handled by S.C.H.
Davis. The Australian course is 6 1/4 miles long, with four difficult corners, and this
year's event was won by Dickason in 3 hrs. 2 mins. 24 secs., carrying a handicap of thirty
minutes. The second place was taken by Junkers on a straight-8 Bugatti, and another
Bugatti came third with Drake-Richmond at the wheel. Only six cars finished the course.
