Horsham Motor Sports Club brought their 2017/18 season to a close over the Queens Birthday long weekend with an old fashioned Sunday Butchers Picnic.

Without the use of any aerodynamics these cars can prove to be hard to handle and the racing is sure to be hard and fast on the wide open Blue Ribbon clay.
