Speedway Delay

Horsham Motor Sports Club has reprogrammed a speedway meeting for next Sunday after rain forced officials to abandon a meeting planned for Saturday night.

Spokeswoman Di Bell said heavy rain late last week had turned the Kalkee Blue Ribbon Speedway car-park into a quagmire.

“The actual track was fine but we couldn’t have got any cars from the road to the track”, Mrs Bell said.

“We tried to let people know the Saturday night speedway meeting was cancelled by putting notices on the radio and at the Horsham Motor Show.”

Mrs Bell  said next Sunday’s meeting, which would start at noon, would include features and events which had been planned for Saturday night.
