sra pro sprints, compact speedcars, vsc unlimited sedans plus supports


This Saturday night a great night of entertainment is sure to be had with the Sprintcars back in town along with an eager line-up of Sedan competitors across Production Sedans, Unlimited Sedans, Junior 1200cc Sedans and a small field of Compact Speedcars keen to impress.

Sprintcar action is by way of the Sprintcar Racing Association of Victoria and the C & H Trucking Pro Sprints series which this weekend includes nominations from Domain Ramsey, Jordan Rae, Paul Solomon, Daniel Storer from Portland, Matthew Symons, and Charles Hunter. Pro Sprint competition is becoming hugely popular with more competitors committing to the category weekly. Many of the competitors choosing to compete with Chevrolet LS engines.

Production Sedans have attracted the largest field they have had at Blue Ribbon Raceway for the summer with Jamie Pumpa, Ian Calderwood, Stuey Robinson and Dehne Sparrow amongst the visitors to do battle with Horsham’s own Dean Hughes, Shaun Queale, and Katelyn Eltze. Sparrow is in a new car and Jamie Pumpa is back in action and they could be at the front of the field head-to-head with Horsham’s contingent keen to take a home track victory.

Junior race driver talent will be on track in the form of the Junior 1200cc Sedan class. Horsham’s Rebecca Johnstone will compete on her home track against racers coming from as far as Wonthaggi and Wangaratta. Arthur Hutchinson is the number one driver of the class and he meads Braiden Webster, Bryce Leek, Chase Doherty and Riley Taylor in the line-up. Arthur Hutchinson is the top driver of the class, however others in the field are getting close to securing a victory, it could be this weekend.

Some local businesses have come together to sponsor the Junior 1200 Sedans in order to encourage the families from South Gippsland, South East Melbourne, Yarra Ranges, Eastern Suburbs and Bendigo, and Werribee to come into town.

Sprincar allstars return to blue ribbon raceway

The Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers 360 Sprintcars are set to return to Blue Ribbon Raceway for what will hopefully be their season opener after multiple rain outs have postponed their season. Everyones fingers are crossed that the wet weather holds off for Blue Ribbons opening night of their season.

The MJS Street Stock Series are set for round 2 of their series, after holding Round 1 in Whyalla a couple of weeks ago. With a nomination list of over 20 cars so far, this will be sure to put on a good show for the spectators, and some tough competition for the competitors.

Support classes include the Blue Ribbon V8 Trucks, Production sedans and VSC Unlimeted Sedans.

The members of the Blue Ribbon Raceway have had a difficult time in the off season, dealing with excessive amounts of water on the track, and wet conditions making it hard to do our usual off season maintenance. The Club looks foward to getting our season underway and fingers crossed the weather doesnt cancel another race meeting in Victoria for the rest of the season.

The club would like to thank the following sponsors for their support this season. Wimmera Bearings, Burson Auto Parts Horsham, Bigham Truck Repairs, Wilken Group, Carmans Towing and Windscreens, Wimmera Bakery Dimboola, Petrogas Horsham, Millers, Bondys Contractors, Horsham Injector Service, Ace Radio Network, Wimmera Mail Times, Johnsons Merchandise, Horsham Auto Wreckers, Westonvic Waste, Dooen Hotel, Mick Harrison Signs, Wimmera Security Service, Simpson Fire Motorsport Safety, Crop Opti

2022/2023 Season to start with a BANG!

Blue Ribbon Raceway is set for another action packed season, with the return of the All-Star Sprintcar series twice, the Eureka Garages Sprintcars and new this season the SRA Limited Sprintcars. Also for the first time this season Horsham Motorsports Club is hosting the first night of the Wingless Sprint Summer Slam, which is held every January over three consecutive days. The club will once again run the “Wingless Classic” in May. Once again the Formula 500s will contest one round of their Stampede Series in April, but also joining the Wingless Sprints in the Summer Slam, for their Dash for Cash. The Dash for Cash runs every night with the Summer Slam.

There are some rumours that we will see a few more of our own V8 Trucks hit the track season, with the possibility of 10 being registered this season, this will sure make for some good racing and set some new challenges for the usual drivers that contest at most of our meetings. The trucks are also having a run in Hamilton on Jan 14 and also making a long awaited return to Swan Hill on the March 25.

The Street Stocks return for MJS Street Stock series on Dec 3, and as always this should attract some quality drivers and some quality racing. The Limited Sportsman are a key supporting class of Blue Ribbon Raceway, and with the annual Kev Baker Challenge once again been run, is sure to attract a good number of cars as it has in previous years.

With multiple support classes having a run this year, supporting our feature Events, this will bring a good variety of racing, from the cars of yesty year in the vintage right through to Production Sedans, AMCAs, and the up and coming Juniors learning and improving their skills to hopefully keep our great sport alive for many years to come

(All support classes subject to change if situations arise that are out of Blue Ribbon Raceways control)
