The Coleman Cup memorial race has been running since 1995 in honor of young racer Brendan Coleman, who had tragically passed away. The 2016 edition was held at the Melbourne Keilor Offroad RC Club, where over 80 entries raced for the prestigious trophies. The club worked hard to put on a good track; unfortunately, Mother Nature stepped in during the day, and her ever-increasing gale force winds forced the event to be cancelled on safety grounds after qualifying.
2wd Open saw Ray Munday took the win in front of Andrew Selvaggi second and Cameron Zammit third. 4wd Open saw a result identical to the Victorian Titles two weeks prior, with 15-year-old ‘Cam Zam’ in first place, Ray Munday in second, and 10-year-old Lachlan Munday in third. Cameron also took the Truck Open class. In the highly competitive 17.5T classes, 11-year-old Jordan Isergin continued his strong form with a first in 4WD 17.5T and second in 2WD 17.5T while Nathan Krohn took the 2WD 21.5T class. At the end of the day, the prestigious Coleman Cup trophy for sportsmanship was awarded to Peter Wooster from Wodonga, a fitting recognition for the work he has put into the sport over the years.
