Sprintcars to light up Blue Ribbon
Horsham Motorsports Club will be hosting the 7th round of the Mainline Dynolog Dynomometers 360 Sprintcars All Star Challenge this Saturday night at Blue Ribbon Speedway in Horsham.

With six completed rounds in the books the winner has been mother nature in three of the rounds and the teams are looking for the weather to play its part and provide the usual fast track at the Kalkee facility and allowing for clean multiple groove racing.

With two top tens and a win in Wangaratta the S33 of Mark Caruso is holding the hot hand and will be hard to beat but the hard charging pair of Paul and Christopher Solomon won’t make it easy for him. Only one hundred points separates the top four drivers in the series and with all the teams hungry it will be a guaranteed barn burner of a night of high speed action.

The 360 All Stars Challenge is one of the busiest and most hotly contested of all the touring series in speedway and this years driver line up is no exception. Drivers and teams involved in the series represent most of the states and territories of Australia and visiting drivers from the United States who would love to take home the series title from the locals.

Featured support events for the night will see the Limited Sportsman competing for the very important Les McMaster Memorial. This annual event is one of the most fiercely competitive events for the “sportie” drivers and is sure to pit the likes of Jock Baker, Mark McDonald and Jenny Godfrey in heated battle to take home this coveted memorial trophy.

Horshams own V8 trucks will be competing for the annual Robin Thomas V8 truck memorial that pits the drivers of these large trucks in serious battle in the memory of club stalwart Robin Thomas.

Returning for a second time this season will be the vintage heavy hotrods that always put on a great show demonstrating the cars and styles of racing from ‘back in the day’, modified sedans, 3 litre saloons, street stocks and ladies will also be running on the night.

Admission; Adult $25, Pensioner $20, Student $15 (12 to 16 years) Family $60 2 adults and 2 students, Kids under 12 free. Racing starts at 6:30 pm and Horsham Motorsports Club would like to welcome fans of all abilities with the completion of all access facilities at the track.
