The Queen’s Birthday weekend Speedway Carnival at Blue Ribbon Raceway began on Saturday afternoon, but not without earlier concern of drizzle for Horsham Motor Sports Club officials. Although the weather passed by midday the track surface was very greasy. The program featuring 82 races over the weekend was re-shuffled, 33 Wingless Sprint Cars were then the first to race in an attempt to dry out the track aided by their large race tyres.
