Sprintcar All Stars return
Blue Ribbon Speedway fans will be in for a great night of racing this weekend with the 100th series round of the 360 AllStars supported by Three Litre Sedans, Vintage Hotrods and Limited Sportsman.
After a short break in their calendar for the “Classic” where some of the All Stars either ran in the Classic or other series events the drivers will be keen for a run to celebrate the 100th round of this very popular series that never disappoints their fans with close racing and large fields everywhere they appear.
With different winners in the earlier rounds the field is wide open for another driver to put his name on the top of the table when the high powered winged monsters hit the wide open spaces of the Kalkee circuit. Previous events held at the Blue Ribbon track have seen close high speed competition on a track that will open up various racing lines from the pole line to the cushion for the bravest of the drivers. With their unique style of qualifying heats and pole shuffles the entertainment does not slow down all night.
Three Litre Sedans
Three litre sedan drivers from across the state will be sure to put on a great show in support of the All Stars with the local drivers, Steve Honeyman, Graham Gerlach and Ballarat’s Ross Burrows among others that always put on a great show. Ben and Lennie Naismith and the Vic 2 of Daniel Wilson from the GV club and the Ahearns from Hamilton will be sure to keep Swan Hills Mick Boyle on his toes. The three litre cars will always put on fast and close racing.
Vintage Hot Rods
Vintage Hot Rods owners will again be gathering their restored and treasured cars from the past for their own style of demonstration driving with a good field of cars lined up representing the years from the early days of speedway racing. These cars are restored former racers and replicas of former race cars featuring an early super modified, an early super rod, a couple of side valve Ford powered cars a slant six powered hot rod and even a V8 powered VW. As a demonstration class the cars are driven at their potential showing just what it was like in the earliest days of the sport.
Limited Sportsman will bring their best to continue their very busy season. With events as far away as Bairnsdale in eastern Victoria, the sportie drivers have had a hard go at it with a number suffering engine failures and hard wrecks. As usual the drivers will be hard at it in the week up to the meeting and will put on a great show for their fans.
Horsham Motorsports Club will be hosting The Down Under Modified Tractor Pull on Saturday Feb 9 at the Blue Ribbon Speedway in a first for the club. This is an event not to be missed. More details to follow.
