THIS EVENT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME AND WE’VE JUST CELEBRATED IT’S 51ST CONSECUTIVE YEAR.
The Blossom event has continued to be well supported over the years. Competitors enjoy coming to the Hawke’s Bay in the spring (hence the name Blossom) to a fun meeting that has always provided a great weekends racing and good ‘bang for your bucks’ racing with realistic entry fees and good prizes and trophies.
The inaugural event was a road race around the streets of Hastings in the late 1960’s and over the decades it has been run in many different formats. One was a sprint meeting on the Saturday at the Roys Hill track and then a road race on the Sunday just down the road at the Thunder Park drag strip which has now been turned into a vineyard.
