Sprintcars and grass roots sedan racing this Saturday at Blue Ribbon Raceway

This Saturday night a great night of entertainment is sure to be had with the Sprintcars back in town along with an eager line-up of Sedan competitors across Production Sedans, Unlimited Sedans, Junior 1200cc Sedans and a small field of Compact Speedcars keen to impress.

Sprintcar action is by way of the Sprintcar Racing Association of Victoria and the C & H Trucking Pro Sprints series which this weekend includes nominations from Domain Ramsey, Jordan Rae, Paul Solomon, Daniel Storer from Portland, Matthew Symons, and Charles Hunter. Pro Sprint competition is becoming hugely popular with more competitors committing to the category weekly. Many of the competitors choosing to compete with Chevrolet LS engines.

Production Sedans have attracted the largest field they have had at Blue Ribbon Raceway for the summer with Jamie Pumpa, Ian Calderwood, Stuey Robinson and Dehne Sparrow amongst the visitors to do battle with Horsham’s own Dean Hughes, Shaun Queale, and Katelyn Eltze. Sparrow is in a new car and Jamie Pumpa is back in action and they could be at the front of the field head-to-head with Horsham’s contingent keen to take a home track victory.

Junior race driver talent will be on track in the form of the Junior 1200cc Sedan class. Horsham’s Rebecca Johnstone will compete on her home track against racers coming from as far as Wonthaggi and Wangaratta. Arthur Hutchinson is the number one driver of the class and he meads Braiden Webster, Bryce Leek, Chase Doherty and Riley Taylor in the line-up. Arthur Hutchinson is the top driver of the class, however others in the field are getting close to securing a victory, it could be this weekend.

Some local businesses have come together to sponsor the Junior 1200 Sedans in order to encourage the families from South Gippsland, South East Melbourne, Yarra Ranges, Eastern Suburbs and Bendigo, and Werribee to come into town.
