The dress code for ladies has been updated to reflect modern fashion and will apply to all MVRC race meetings. While we are happy to embrace change we are committed to keeping our Members’ Areas stylish and classy. This Members Dress Code guide should assist to clarify some of the common grey areas, however MVRC reserves the right to refuse entry to any person considered inappropriately attired.
