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 last of the anniversary celebrations are to be at the club’s Presentation Dinner held at the Kalkee Football Function Room on August 13th.
Club members past and present, are invited to attend the evening beginning at 6:30pm and evening will feature the presentation of class winners and drivers champion.
Memorabilia will be on display and attendees are invited to bring along a memento.
A three course meal will be served and drinks will be available at bar prices.
Adults – $20, Students – $10, Kids under 12 – free, Family (2A&2C) — $50
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.
A big two-day race meeting of speedway is set for this weekend with the running of the Blue Ribbon Raceway Speedway Carnival. The annual two day race meeting will be held on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, with speedway drivers from across Victoria and South Australia racing on both days.
A huge field of 37 Wingless Sprints have nominated to race on the weekend, in what has become an annual feature race. The Horsham club now has two drivers in the popular class. Jeremy Beddison will be unveiling his newly built car for the first time this weekend. Steve Hately who now has a season of Wingless Sprint racing under his belt, looks forward to finally challenging the field on his home track.
