Nice gesture by Ricky Dunbar to organise a sash for the inaugural Pitreavie Gift.



The Directors of the Pitreavie Gift are delighted to announce that the winner of the inaugural Pitreavie Gift will receive a Victor's sash in the tradition of the Australian Gift meetings upon which this meeting is modelled.

The winner of the 1963 New Year Sprint, R F (Ricky) Dunbar, originally from Edinburgh but now a resident of Victoria and still a regular competitor (and winner himself!) in events held in his "new" found home state contacted the Gift immediately he heard about the new venture, offering to promote and support it in any way he could. He made contact by email and telephone asking if he could be permitted to provide the Victor's sash. This was an offer which the Gift was delighted to accept.

Rick won the New Year Sprint from a mark of just 4.5 yards at Newtongrange before setting sail for Australia where he has performed a pivotal role in foot racing under the VAL code. His son, Cam, is also following in his father's footsteps on to the track, with regular wins in Victorian sprints and both his wife, Sue, and daughter, Nila, are officials on the VAL circuit.

The Gift sends its heartfelt thanks to Ricky for his good wishes for the 2012 race and for the "gift" of the Victor's sash.
