Horsham Motorsports Club will host the seventh round of a Sprintcars All Star Challenge at Horsham’s Blue Ribbon Speedway in Horsham on Saturday night.
With six completed rounds in the books, a winner has been Mother Nature in three of the rounds.
Teams are looking for the weather to again play its part and for the Kalkee facility to provide its traditionally fast track and allow for multiple groove racing.
With two top 10s 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 will not make it easy for him.
Only 100 points separate the top four drivers in the series and with all the teams hungry it will be a guaranteed barnburner 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 year’s 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 include Limited Sportsman competing for the 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.
Horsham’s 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 hot-rods that always put on a great show, demonstrating the cars and styles of racing from ‘back in the day’. Modified sedans, three-litre saloons, street stocks and ladies will also be running on the night.
Adult spectators will pay $25, pensioners $20, students aged 12 to 16 $15 and families of two adults and two students $160. Children under 12 attend free. Racing starts at 6.30pm and Horsham Motorsports Club welcomes fans of all abilities with completion of all-access facilities at the track.
