The bonus money for 1959 was distributed immediately after the Kooyong event on January 1, so this was the final event of the Ampol 1959 series.
There was no Ampol tour for 1960, or bonus pool, as Ampol and Qantas withdrew their involvement with the Kramer group after Hoad announced his semi-retirement.
