2021 Harrow Vinduro Rescheduled
20 July 2021

Due to the extension of the latest Victorian lockdown, VERi has been left with no choice but to reschedule the 2021 Harrow Vinduro to the weekend of 18-19 September 2021.

The event will continue with the same format as previously announced, with an enduro loop at Possum Park (Chetwynd) on Saturday, and an exciting ride around familiar Harrow farmland on Sunday.

All bookings, included meals, will be carried over to the new dates.

The rescheduled Harrow Vinduro replaces the Ross Creek Vinduro. We will now look at running an event at Ross Creek in 2022, so stay tuned.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and if the new dates are unsuitable and you've already paid your entry fee get in touch via email and we'll arrange a refund - treas@verivinduro.com.au

Thank you

The VERi Committee

2 x 4 for Daniel Sanders in two months

11 July 2021

Congratulations to Daniel Sanders who has picked up two fourth place final positions at international rallies in the last two months! Sanders placed 4th at the Rally Kazakhstan in June, and a couple of weeks later picked up another fourth place in the Silk Way Rally!

The Aussie from Three Bridges in Victoria rode a KTM to an impressive 4th position at his Dakar Rally debut in January 2021.

The switch to GasGas is obviously working for him, as these latest results show.

We can't wait to see him in Saudi Arabia for the 2022 edition of the Dakar Rally.

Important announcement regarding Unregistered Vehicle Permits

28 May 2021

Due to increasing administrative complexity, VERi will no longer be organising VicRoads Unregistered Vehicle Permits (UVPs) to entrants at our events where registered motorbikes are a required. This includes the annual Harrow Vinduro.

Also, we will no longer accept UVPs purchased online from the VicRoads website.

This means that to be eligible your bike will need to have
  • full road registration,
  • recreational registration (Vic), or
  • be on the Club Permit Scheme (Vic).
If you are attending a VERi event from interstate you will need to check with relevant road/traffic authorities that your bike's registration is valid in Victoria.

VERi events on private property where motorbike registration is not required are not affected by this change.


Won Wron Vinduro entries now open
27 May 2021

The 2021 Won Wron Vinduro will will be held on Sunday 27 June. The event will start and finish at the Won Wron Recreation Reserve. (This is a different location to previous VERi events in this area).

The venue is located on Hyland Way, Won Wron, Victoria. This is 13 km from Yarram, and 51 km from Traralgon.

Once riders leave the parc ferme, they will travel south into the renowned Stradbroke area - the home of many multi-day enduros, including the 1998 International Six Day Enduro (ISDE).

Many of the tracks we'll be using have been included in these past events. There'll be a wide variety of varying terrain, set to challenge all levels of rider and machine.

The loop will be 60 km, with an optional extra leg of 20 km.

Camping will be available on both Saturday and Sunday night, at a cost of $10 per person, per night. Fires are permitted, but must be contained in a fire drum, and not on bare ground. You'll need to bring your own drum and firewood.

Hot shower and toilet facilities are available on site.

A coffee van with food will be available on Saturday. There'll be a bacon and egg breakfast and barbecue lunch available on Sunday.

Online entry is now available.

Important A3VE announcement

10 May 2021

At the riders briefing on Day Three of the A3VE it was announced that the VERi committee is having a rest from running the A3VE in 2022.

The club is very proud of what we have achieved, and we hope to see this event become a regular feature on the vintage off-road calendar.

We are putting out a call to any clubs who are interested in running this unique event. In particular clubs from interstate, as it would be great to see the A3VE become a truly national event.

Expressions of interest can be emailed to verivinduro@gmail.com

Day three done! Congratulations to everyone who took part in the second A3VE
10 May 2021

The weather was perfect, the trails were sublime, the racing was close... In fact the 2021 edition of the A3VE was damn perfect!

Thanks to all the committee members, locals, volunteers, officials, time-keepers, scorers, sweep riders, recovery drivers, medical staff and everyone else who made this incredible event happen. And of course thanks to the riders who came from far and wide to take part and really make this event special. We're sure they've all had an experience they won't forget.

The final results are now available. Here's a summary of the winners:

Day Two of A3VE done
8 May 2021

Brilliant riding conditions have kept this competition firing. There has been plenty of trail adventures to inspire bench racing tales for years to come. The attrition rate has been high in the V1 class, with a lone Yamaha rider just needing to finish to clinch first place, Our lone VW competitor is in good spirits, and just has to make it to the end to claim a well-earned victory.

Updated results for riders and teams are now available. The start times for Day Three are up now too.

Good luck to all riders taking on Day Three!

We hope that all riders have enjoyed the first day of the A3VE. We are already hearing some great stories of adventure, failure and success from those taking part.

Updated results for riders and teams are now available. The start times for Day Two are as well.

We look forward to kicking off the second leg of this great event on Saturday!

The COVID plan for the upcoming A3VE has been posted under the A3VE section of this website.

We ask that all attendees comply with instructions and requests from officials while at the event. This includes entering your details via QR code every day that you attend.


A3VE entry list updated
30 April 2021

The latest entry list is now available. Please note that we will be starting riders as per class as shown in this list. However, the final order may yet change before the event.

Also, there are still some riders who need to confirm their bike details before the event. Please inform the Club Secretary ASAP - Peter Drakeford | Ph: 0422 299 003 | e: verivinduro@gmail.com


No camping in the A3VE trailer/vehicle parking paddock

29 April 2021

It is important that all A3VE attendees are aware that there is no camping allowed in the small paddock adjacent to the Blackwood oval service area. This includes sleeping in vans, utes, etc.


A3VE Announcement: Teams / Riding together / Age of bike
23 April 2021

VERi is NOT taking team nominations prior to the event. All State, Vase and Club Teams are to be submitted in writing to the scorers on sign-in.

Also, we are no accepting requests from competition entrants to ride with mates. It's tricky enough organising the classes and order as it is! Starting order is by class, and will be in random order as per 1970s enduros. Rally riders however can request to ride on same minute.

Entrants who have not listed the year of their bike will be given the youngest year in that class. Note that age of bike has an impact on handicap assessments.


A3VE rear chain guide requirement explained

21 April 2021

For those riding in the A3VE here's some visual clarification of the requirement that the rear lower chain guide must run onto the rear sprocket. Basically, the guide must stop anything getting between the rear sprocket and the chain.

The white plastic guide in the first picture would be fine.

The metal guide (with finger poised) in the second image is not acceptable, and would need to be modified or extended to close the gap. (Yes, we know there's no chain in the photo...)

Hope this helps!





A3VE competition riders - please check your entry details!
19 April 2021

The early bird entry fee for competitors is no longer available, and the standard $350 fee applies.

The wording on Ridernet home page can be misread as the fee now being $300 + $350, but this is not the case.



A note about enviromats and fire extinguishers at the 2021 A3VE

8 April 2020

The A3VE Supplementary Regulations state the following:

27. FIRE EXTINGUISHERS AND ENVIROMATS

All riders must have a minimum 2kg, dry powder A:B (E) class, working fire extinguisher in their pit area. Absorbent but fuel proof Enviromats must be used for refueling. 2020 MA MoMS state size must be at least wheelbase long and bars wide, 5mm absorbent material able to take 1 litre and have a waterproof sole.

Neither of these items are "optional".

Event officials will be checking that competitors are complying with this requirement throughout the event.

The pit area is on a local sporting oval, and we want to avoid any damage from spilt fuel and fluids.

Please note that the mats that were available from VERi at the 2019 A3VE are NOT compliant for this event.
