A slight hiccup didn't deter a healthy crowd from flocking to Rainbow for the 2019 Desert Enduro race.
The main event was delayed a day after competitors arrived on Saturday to a waterlogged track.
"We couldn't thank the Rainbow community enough for opening up their doors after their hospitality after the cancellation due to the weather," Victorian Off Road Racing Australia president Tony Carabott said.
"Everyone was welcomed with open arms, and that was excellent."
Greg Gartner and Jamie Jennings claimed outright honours, finishing the five-lap event in just 3hrs 52min.
It is the second time the pair have made the podium at Rainbow after they won the inaugural race in 2017.
Dale Martin and Leigh Wells were first to cross the finish line, but ended second outright with a time of 4hr 02min after fuel breaks were taken into account.
Mark and Matthew Burrows finished third outright with a time of 4hr 09 min, which was enough to see Burrows crowned the Australian Off Road Champion.
Carabott said it was a fantastic event, with plenty of people supporting off-road racing in the town.
"Spectator hill was full, and we had a fair few come through the gate, which was good," Carabott said.
"The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport gave it all thumbs up. It ticked all the boxes, and they said it was one of the most successful events of the year."
