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.

“I’ve been involved with hotrod speedway since grassroots level. Back then they’d whack a few bars around you, a lap-belt and send you out on the track. Things have changed a lot since then”, said Mark.
