Robertstown welcomed the 2017 Lew Job 2 Day Trial, on the weekend of 10th & 11th June. for it's major event for the region being Round 3 of the South Australian Reliability Trials Championship (SART).

The event's Main Control was located at the Robertstown Oval and over some 80Km of the track riders found varying conditions from dust to water and bog holes. There were some varied successes with the entries, and this event is often seen as the 'shake down' for the next event - Round 4 of SART, the Swann Insurance 24 Hour which is run in July at Eudunda.

The event could not have been the success without so many helpers, from land owners, the control keepers, Radio operators), Ambos, through to the local clubs catering for the visitors and riders.
