VW Fact #917: VW's Australian popularity was built on its outstanding successes in the Round Australia Reliability trials of the day. Volkswagens won the 1955 Redex Trial, the 1956 Mobilgas Trial, the 1957 Ampol and 1957 Mobilgas Trials and the 1958 Mobilgas Trial against much larger and more powerful cars. VW's often filled the minor placings as well. In the 1957 Mobilgas Trial, Volkswagen finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th. VW's dominance was the reason these trials were discontinued.
