Horsham Motor Sports Club has been celebrating 20 years of racing at Blue Ribbon Raceway this racing season. Back in 1996, a dream that had inspired the club since the early seventies to have its own track, was finally achieved after many years of work.
Since then many improvement have been made and the complex now has some of the best facilities in Victoria.
The 2015 / 2016 speedway season came to a conclusion at Blue Ribbon Raceway during the long weekend. 120 drivers came to race in the two day race meeting, which featured ten different classes of race cars.
Dimboola driver Dean Baker was ready to race his for the first time in 25 years on Saturday at the Blue Ribbon Raceway. Baker had worked tirelessly to restore the same car that achieved a Victorian title in 1988 for Saturday’s race.
Unfortunately, Baker was unable to finish the race in the restored beauty, his clutch blowing out in his second race.
