Wimmera Light Car Club members have been working “around the clock” to prepare its Horsham track for Sunday’s quarter-mile sprints.
Sprints start at 2pm and cars will race against the clock with the best time of two runs counting in trophy wins.
The annual event is expected to attract a big crowd.
Members decided this year to run two cars at once. The cars will line-up on the grid, and electronically operated devices will record their times.
Horsham’s Tom Edgar and Dad Landrigan will have their Elfins purring up front in another exciting tussle.
Modified cars like a Lynx Borgward, Robert Tucker’s MG TC, and a Prod Holden and 3.8 Litre Jaguar will thrill spectators.
Once again radio personalities, Don Kinsey (Melbourne) and Jim Lindsay (Horsham) will do battle. Kinsey will be out to avenge his defeat of last year. Lindsay will rely on his hot Cortina to take out the trophy.
The Wimmera Light Car Club was formed at a meeting in the Temperance Hall on Wednesday night.
The meeting was called following the great interest shown in the recent Wimmera Car Trial organised by Mr. Danny Landrigan and Mr. Lyle Lakin. About 50 people attended the lively meeting which was preceded by the presentation of trophy to the section winners in the trial.
