A record crowd flocked to watch Super Sedan Southern National series action at Horsham’s Blue Ribbon Raceway at the weekend. Horsham Motor Sports Club officials said 1600 people saw reigning Victorian champion Peter Logue race to victory.

Eighteen drivers from across Victoria competed in the Horsham leg of the eight-meeting southern national series in chilly conditions. Horsham drivers Ray Buckley and Nev Eltze were among the 14 finalists who were no match for Logue, who broke his own lap record during the 30-lap final.
