Although the Mallee Classic wasn't the first One Loft Race in Australia, in fact there has been other races conducted for some ten years. The Interesting Fact is that since the conception of the Mallee Classic it has become the yardstick for which other races are now measured. Some races have since folded, or have started to use ideas developed by The Mallee Classic Event. The Mallee Classic has set new standards in One Loft Racing in Australia and has been innovative in enhancing this type of racing. It has aimed to promote pigeon racing in Australia, give everybody value for money and the chance to compete against the Best of the Best in Australia on equal terms!
