Sprintcar All Stars return
Blue Ribbon Speedway fans are in for a great night of racing this weekend with the 100th series round of the 360 All Stars supported by three litre sedans, vintage hotrods and limited sportsman.
After a short break in their calendar for the ‘Classic’, drivers will be keen for a run to celebrate the 100th round of this popular series that never disappoints their fans with close racing and large fields everywhere they appear.
With different winners in earlier rounds, the field is wide open for another driver to put their name on the top of the table when the high-powered winged monsters hit the wide open spaces of the Kalkee circuit.
Previous events at the Blue Ribbon track have seen close, high-speed competition on a track that will open up various racing lines from the pole line to the cushion for the bravest of the drivers.
With their unique style of qualifying heats and pole shuffles, the entertainment does not slow down all night.
Three litre sedans
Three-litre sedan drivers from across the state are sure to put on a great show in support of the All Stars, with Wimmera drivers Steve Honeyman, Graham Gerlach and Ballarat’s Ross Burrows among competitors who always put on a great show.
Ben and Lennie Naismith, the Vic 2 of Daniel Wilson from GV club and the Ahearns from Hamilton are sure to keep Swan Hill’s Mick Boyle on his toes.
The three-litre cars always showcase fast and close racing.
Vintage hot rods
Vintage hot-rod owners will again bring their restored and treasured cars from the past for their own style of demonstration driving.
There is a good field of cars lined up, representing early days of speedway racing.
These cars are restored former racers and replicas of former race cars.
An early super-modified, an early super-rod, a couple of side-valve Ford-powered cars, a slant six powered hot rod, even a V8 powered VW, will take on the track.
As a demonstration class, the cars are driven at their potential, showing just what it was like in the earliest days of the sport.
Limited sportsman will bring their best to continue their busy season.
With events as far away as Bairnsdale in eastern Victoria, the sportie drivers have had a hard go at it with many suffering engine hard wrecks.
As usual the drivers will be hard at it in the week up to the meeting and will put on a great show for their fans. failures and
Horsham Motorsports Club will host The Down Under Modified Tractor Pull on Saturday, February 9, at the Blue Ribbon Speedway in a first for the club. This is an event not to be missed.
