Important information COVID 19
Welcome to the 2021/22 racing season.
The VRC team looks forward to welcoming members to the upcoming 2021/22 racing season. The year ahead promises exceptional racing at Flemington, all-new exclusive member events, member offers and race day experiences both on-course in the world-class facilities at Flemington and off-course via our events, broadcast and digital channels.
Ongoing member connection, premium racing and entertainment is at the heart of our member offering and Club focus for the 2021/22 racing season.
We would also like to acknowledge all members for their continued loyalty and support. In 2020/21 we experienced a season like no other in our Club’s history and together we have maintained a strong and vibrant racing club – thank you.
Flemington, Australia’s premier racecourse
Flemington had the most races featured in the top 50 for internationally ranked races of any Australian racecourse in 2020. The upcoming 2021/22 racing season will see quality Flemington racing across 24 race days boosted by Industry increases in prizemoney, with a record 13 feature races worth $1,000,000 or more, and we will also see the return of the All-Star Mile in March, one of the highlights of Autumn racing.
2021 Melbourne Cup Carnival update
The VRC is looking forward to a very special and memorable Melbourne Cup Carnival after last year’s spectator-free event. Our plan is to host a COVIDSafe event crowd of at least 60,000 attendees per day, with VRC members to receive priority and exclusive access across the four days of the Carnival.
In the event that the VRC is unable to host a COVIDSafe 2021 Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington due to Victorian Government Health Directives, we will provide VRC members with a ‘make good’ for your membership that reflects the value of the missed Carnival race days.
Membership Renewals for the 2021/22 racing season are now open
This season we have extended the renewal due date to Wednesday 15 September 2021 in order to provide members more time to complete their renewal for the season ahead.
You will receive your membership renewal pack with all the details of your membership subscription in the mail in the coming days.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the VRC we look forward to sharing the season with you.
