KALKEE’S Blue Ribbon Raceway season opener has been cancelled due to a lack of numbers.

The AMCA V8 series and Three Litre Sedan feature event was originally set for December 27.

Horsham Motor Sports Club Committee member and promotions officer Jamie Collins said there was not enough nominations for this year’s event.

“We didn’t want to put on a disappointing show with a lack of nominations”, he said.

“It normally is quite a popular event but with the good harvest season our volunteers and drivers, who are predominately farmers, are pretty tied up.  “We are disappointed but we will be looking forward to our next race.”

Collins said they would not be rescheduling as the timing was too tight and would instead look to preparations for its feature 360 sprint cars event on February 4 next year.
