HRP November 4th - A Report
Added Monday 6th November 2017


A cold but dry November evening greeted drivers, teams and a large crowd of race fans as they gathered at HRP Lochgelly Raceway for the final meeting of the 2017 Scottish Stock Car Season. A fantastic five-formula line-up had gathered in the pits with Superstox, 1300 Stock Cars, Stock Rods, National Hot Rods and Back to Basics Bangers on the programme of events. Several issues still had to be settled and it was down to business at the earlier than usual start time of 5pm.

The first race of the night was for the 1300 Stock Cars and the focus of attention in the bumper brigade was the 2017 Track Championship with just one point separating Craig Haxton (Leven) and Andrew Mathieson (Lochgelly) as the green flag dropped on heat one. Jason Cutler left it late in 2017 but managed to make his first appearance of the season amongst a reasonable grid of cars. Eddie Corr had recently returned from a knee operation and looked like he hadn't lost any of his speed and underlined this as he took a fine win in heat one ahead of Dean McGill with Mathieson and Haxton third and fourth - meaning they were neck and neck going into heat two. Things did not go well for Haxton in heat two as he posted a non-finish but Eddie Corr would have been delighted to take his second win of the evening and securing a return to red grade for the next grading period - Mathieson posted a fifth-place finish which meant there would be just six points between him and Haxton going into the final race of the season - the Track Championship was going to the wire! As always, the 1300 Stock Cars delivered with plenty of bumper-work going on lower down the grid as Dean McGill had got a flyer from the front of the reds with the likes of Haxton, Andrew Mathieson, Euan Mathieson and Jock Whyte trading blows on every corner. McGill soon found himself in the lead; but all eyes were on the battle further back with Haxton and Andrew Mathieson in close proximity to one another and the pivotal moment came late in the race when Mathieson spun Haxton out which put paid to Haxton's fantastic challenge although he did recover to pick up 8th place, however, Mathieson claimed 6th spot and the 2017 Track Championship. The controversy did not stop there as McGill was docked two places for jumping the start which gave Paul Ford the feature final win ahead of Jock Whyte and McGill. Brilliant stuff from the 1300 Stock Cars!!!

The National Hot Rods were back in action after a long absence for the sixth round of their World Championship Qualifying Series (the halfway point) and the battle at the top between Ian Donaldson and Robert McDonald would continue throughout the evening. It was also fantastic to see 2016 World Champion Adam Maxwell making the trip from Northern Ireland, as he had done last year, to make an appearance at the final meeting of the year. Donaldson held the lead as the even started but McDonald took full advantage of a non-finish for Donaldson as he claimed the win in heat one ahead of Maxwell and Roy Anderson. The second heat saw Maxwell take the win ahead of Donaldson with McDonald in third place which meant McDonald led the series but only by a couple of points. Disaster struck for Donaldson in the early stages of the feature final as his car pulled up on the infield on the back straight at the same time as McDonald was taking over the lead of the race. As the laps wound down, Maxwell had reduced the gap between himself and McDonald; but he had to settle for second with Ian McGuigan in third. McDonald will take a reasonable lead into the second half of the series in 2018 sponsored by Dechmont Forklift Trucks.

The Stock Rods also had the destiny of their Track Championship on the line with brothers Jonathan and Chris Lattka vying with one another for the title after both have picked up other major titles this season. Two drivers also made their debuts in the form of Kevin Forrester and former-Superstox racer Stuart Bannatyne. Heat One saw a relatively routine win for a fast-moving Alan Cuthbert who claimed victory ahead of Andy Grant and Chris Lattka. Heat Two saw another yellow top winner as Pete Thomson took the win on an all-too-rare appearance for the experienced 184 driver who will hopefully be seen more regularly in 2018 with heat one winner Cuthbert second and Jonathan Lattka in third. These results meant that Best in Britain and Scottish Champion Jonathan Lattka entered the feature final with a slender two-point lead over National Points, European and British Champion Chris Lattka. Ross Finlay led the early stages of the race but was overhauled by a train of cars including Andy Grant, Gary Dean and Darren McAlpine. As soon as Grant was clear of the pack, he set about extending his lead and drove a great race to take the win ahead of Alan Cuthbert and Gary Dean while Jonathan Lattka's fifth spot and brother Chris' non-points finish secured the Track Championship. 2017 has been a great year for the Stock Rods with more expected in 2018.

The Superstox events began with a special lap of honour as 2017 World Champion Barry Stephen made his first appearance at his home track since claiming the gold roof and was accompanied on his lap by his daughter, the gold roof car plus the car he won the race in which was now to be taken over by its owner Chris Hay. HRP Lochgelly raceway was also delighted to welcome English visitor Richard Mead and Lee Davison from Northern Ireland. Stephen's homecoming was met with great applause from the fans and this clearly motivated the World Champion as he managed to take the win in heat one after a fantastic race which also saw National Points Champion David Frame (3rd) and former World Champion Stuart Gilchrist (2nd) feature prominently. Heat Two was a Gilchrist masterclass as he stormed to the win ahead of Frame and a resurgent Kenny McKenzie. The feature final delivered a brilliant race which was fitting for a formula that has been in top form throughout the season with the bumpers being used to full effect throughout the pack while Paul Dunn sped off into the lead pursued by Zak Gilmour and Steven Ballantine. Eventually, Dunn was overhauled by Gilmour and Ballantine but all eyes were on Gilchrist who, despite a first lap skirmish with Davison, had surged through the field to third and he was looking for more as the laps wound down. Gilchrist passed Ballantine and then Gilmour in relatively short order, but both these drivers deserve immense credit for their efforts and were rewarded with podium places with Gilmour in second and Ballantine third behind the victorious Gilchrist to bring the curtain down on a fantastic season of Superstox racing.

The final formula on show were the Back to Basics Bangers which featured an eclectic mix of cars including a Corsa van, Nissan Bluebird, Ford Puma and Nissan Sunny among the decent entry. The nudge and spin heats saw victories for Robert Davidson and Michelle Murdoch before William Ewart took the chequered flag in the final dash. The end of the dash heralded the start of the demolition derby which saw some big hits from the likes of James Dillon and Lee Kopacz - with Kopacz notably running with just three wheels by this time and it was a thrilling end to the 2017 season as Kopacz and Campbell ended the DD with a huge hit and an honourable draw!!!

A fantastic conclusion to a brilliant racing season at HRP Lochgelly Raceway with many already looking forward to 2018!!!




HRP October 27th - A Report
Added Monday 30th October 2017


With the clocks going back a day later, it certainly felt like winter was firmly on its way as drivers, teams and fans gathered at HRP Lochgelly Raceway this past Friday on a cold but dry evening for the penultimate stock car event of the 2017 season at Scotland's most-modern short oval.

There were four formulas on hand with some coveted titles on the line. The 2.0 Hot Rods were on track first for their final domestic meeting of a season that has seen all four major titles (World, European, British and National) won by HRP Lochgelly Raceway drivers plus a myriad of other championships. William Hardie and Gordon Alexander have won the majority of titles between them and deserve huge credit for the fantastic job they have done in raising the profile of Scotland in the 2.0 Hot Rods. These two would line up at the back of a fairly small field of cars but it was pleasing to see Gerry Hendry (Dunfermline) and Colin Seath (Kingseat) back on track. The first heat saw the formula's top two drivers make quick work of slicing their way through the field but neither Alexander or Hardie could stop a flying Kevin Stewart (Carnoustie) as he took full advantage of his yellow grade start to lead virtually the full length of the race with Hardie and Alexander having to settle for second and third respectively. The second heat saw Stewart make another good start, but fellow yellow-top Andrew Denholm had also made a good start and he was the one who would go on to take the win with Hardie again in second and Stewart taking a fine third ahead of Alexander. The feature final saw the flying duo of Stewart and Denholm make their getaway and they built up enough of a lead that the championship duo of Alexander and Hardie were unable to get on terms with them as Stewart took his second win of the night ahead of Denholm and Hardie to complete a memorable 2017 2.0 Hot Rod Season.

The CC Rods were back on track just six days after their last event but managed to muster up twenty cars for their final event of the season which was, as always, for the highly coveted Bill and Ciaran Hawkes Memorial Trophy. The meeting also saw a return to the tracks for former ProStocks multi-champion Jazz Moore (Halbeath) in the borrowed Bob Cairns machine. The first heat was punctuated by a big crash for Darren McDonald and Brandon Gourlay – with McDonald spun on the back straight, Gourlay had nowhere to go and hit the McDonald car with a huge amount of force. However, both drivers were ok and able to leave the track under their own power to watch the resumption of the race which eventually saw long-time leader Tony Wright overhauled by Scottish Champion Stewart Aitken for the win with Wright holding on for second ahead of National Points Champion ian Donaldson who successfully defended the silver roof in 2017. Wright made a similar leap to the front in heat two but this time it was Craig Watson who came through for the win with Graham Osborne (who had a huge crash last week) taking second and Wright holding on for third. The feature final was for the Bill and Ciaran Hawkes Memorial Trophy and, the friends and family of Bill and Ciaran on hand would have enjoyed another thrilling race, as lower graders Wright, Daniel McDonald and Pete Honeyman sped off into the distance while a battle royal took place behind them and the trio managed to hold on all the way to the chequered flag meaning Wright was the proud holder of the 2017 Bill and Ciaran Hawkes Memorial Trophy for 2017 with Daniel McDonald second and Pete Honeyman third to conclude a fantastic season for the low budget CC Rod class.

The 1300 Stock Cars were also on track for one of their most highly prized trophies as Bedfordshire's Adam O’Dell made the long trip north to defend the Mr. Gunn Trophy (Sponsored by Hair by Clare and The Taxi Centre plus friends and members of the Gunn family). O'Dell has concentrated on National Saloons this year but is no stranger to victory at HRP Lochgelly Raceway having won numerous events here in the past. Heat One came on track and it was also great to see David Anderson make his first appearance of 2017 in this race but his lead quickly evaporated as a flying Dean McGill made rapid progress through the field to take the win with O'Dell in a lowly eighth place. The eyes of many were on the track championship battle between Craig Haxton and Andrew Mathieson with Mathieson leading by just one point after heat one. The second heat saw the two protagonists use their bumpers to full effect to find themselves in first and second by the end of the race with Haxton taking the win to draw level on points with Mathieson going into the Mr. Gunn Trophy Final. The cars were lined up in graded order but with no gaps meaning that the first bend would be very interesting and, so it proved as the bumpers flew in as the drivers did their utmost to claim their piece of the enhanced prize fund! The battle between the drivers was brilliant with places being swapped at every turn as the likes of Haxton, Mathieson, O'Dell, Jock Whyte and Billy Wilson treated the fans to an epic race but, using all his experience, it was Adam O'Dell who was in the right place at the right time as he took the chequered flag to successfully defend the Mr. Gunn Trophy with track championship contenders Haxton and Mathieson second and third. This result means that Haxton and Mathieson go into the final event of the season on Saturday November 4th separated by just one point - it should be interesting!!!

The final formula on show were the Ministox who have been consistently outstanding throughout 2017 at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and a huge visiting entry of ten cars from south of the border added to the thrills and spills on track. The first spill came from the car of Ciaran Adams as he hit the kerb on turn one leaving a large pile of oil. After this was cleared, the youngsters treated fans to a thrilling race with plenty of bumper-work as the star drivers made their way through the field and it was one of the visiting stars who took the win as Warren Darby claimed victory ahead of Steven Burgoyne in his final Ministox meeting at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and Harley Soper. The second heat was another brilliant race and it was difficult to know where to look as things were happening all over the HRP tarmac!!! England's Harrison Bryant (also in his final meeting at HRP) took home a win in this one with Burgoyne again having to settle for second ahead of heat one winner Darby – fourth went to Charlie Folan for the second time in what was also his final event. The feature final was an incredible race with no quarter asked and none given by drivers throughout the grid as they produced a thrilling conclusion to the evening and their season. Blue graded Harley Soper managed to hold on at the front, despite pressure from several star drivers, to take England's third victory of the night ahead of Burgoyne and National Points Champion Sean Naismith to bring an end to a brilliant season of Ministox racing at HRP Lochgelly Raceway.

A fantastic meeting which certainly warmed the hearts of those who braved the cold to enjoy the event. HRP Lochgelly Raceway's next slice of stock car action comes your way this Saturday November 4th from 5pm and features Back to Basics Bangers, 1300 Stock Cars, Stock Rods, National Hot Rods and the Superstox (including the first sighting of 2017 World Champion Barry Stephen) while a fireworks display will also entertain those in attendance. The action gets underway at the earlier than usual time of 5pm on Saturday November 4th.

BE THERE!!!





HRP October 21st - A Report
Added Monday 23rd October 2017
Mother nature continued to smile on HRP Lochgelly Raceway this past Saturday as drivers, teams and fans gathered in large numbers for the final episode of HRP's Championship Fever featuring the Stock Rods Scottish Championship as the headlining racing event plus a Banger Ramp Rollover Contest as well as Ninja Karts, CC Rods, Junior Productions and the eagerly anticipated return of the Classic Hot Rods.

The first formula on track was the Junior Productions and it was great to see Cameron Willacy proudly displaying the St Andrews Cross on his roof as the inaugural Scottish Champion. Willacy started alongside Northern Irish visitor Matthew Nicholl who had made the trip across the Irish Sea while four other entrants made this the largest field of 2017 for the fledgling formula as Amber Tyrell, Kris Watson, Chelsey-Lee Kirton and Koddi Greenwood also took to the track. Kris Watson picked up the early lead in race one and held the lead until the closing stages when it looked like Nicholl or Willacy would take over but some determined driving from the youngster saw Watson cross the line first, but only just, to take an excellent win from Nicholl and Willacy. The second race saw Watson start at the back of the white grade so it was Koddi Greenwood who picked up the early lead; Watson soon made his way into second but Nicholl was on a mission as he scythed through the field to catch and pass the two leaders to take a fine victory. The third and final race saw Nicholl and Willacy make relatively short work of those in front of them and Nicholl went on to take his second win of the night to bring the curtain down on the inaugural season for the Junior Productions in Scotland with plenty of optimism around the formula for 2018 and beyond.

The Ninja Karts were also in action for the final time at HRP in 2017 with Charlie Hardie already confirmed as the 2017 National Points Champion after six race wins on the trot while his closest rival Robbie Armit enjoyed a holiday in Florida. The Ninjas kicked off, as always, with their whites and yellows race and it was English visitor Luke McMahon who took the win in his first race at HRP Lochgelly Raceway ahead of Kyle Johnstone and Toby Tyson. Heat One saw the blue and red graded drivers join the fray and it was the returning Armit who underlined his great pace and fantastic season with an excellent win with arch-rival Hardie finishing in second after they eventually overhauled Tyson for the lead. Heat Two was almost a carbon copy of heat one as Armit and Hardie made their way through the field in rapid fashion and found themselves in first and second once again by the chequered flag with Demi Ritchie coming home in third. Heat Three looked like it may well see Hardie take the win but a clash between Hardie and Armit put paid to both top drivers' challenges on the last corner as Demi Ritchie slid through to take an excellent win ahead of Josh Bruce and Bailey Millar. The accumulated points scores were then taken and put through a handicap system to determine the winners of the Jus Bounce trophies and it was Demi Ritchie who took the trophy ahead of Toby Tyson and Kyle Johnstone.

The CC Rods were a late addition to the programme but a good number of cars arrived to do battle and full credit must go to the drivers and teams for their efforts. The first race saw an unfortunate incident when Graham Osborne's car hit the safety barrier in a big way which also eliminated a few other cars in the process but all drivers were thankfully alright. Daniel McDonald had been flying in his Vauxhall Corsa and he made it difficult for those behind him to get on terms with his pace. As it was, only two drivers managed to overhaul McDonald by the end of the race in the form of National Points Champion Ian Donaldson and Scottish Champion Stewart Aitken who took first and second respectively while McDonald held on for an excellent third. Heat Two saw McDonald in the mix once again but it was Michael McNiven who managed to squeeze past the Dalkeith pilot to take the win ahead of McDonald and Jamie Bell claiming the other podium spots. The feature final saw the white graders to the fore once again and, while the higher graded drivers battled amongst themselves, Lee Scott, Tony Wright and McDonald took off into a healthy lead and the drivers remained in those positions at the drop of the chequered flag. The CC Rods round off their season in the Bill and Ciaran Hawkes Memorial Trophy this Friday at HRP Lochgelly Raceway.

The Classic Hot Rods made their final appearance at HRP Lochgelly raceway of 2017 and it was fantastic to see Northern Irish star Thomas Dilly and English Open Champion Gavin Taber joining the Scottish regulars in the pits. It is always great to see the Classic Hot Rods as they remind many fans of how racing used to be with some stunning cars on track including a Ford Anglia, MK1 Escort, MK2 Escorts and a Vauxhall Chevette – this past Saturday also saw the debut of 2.0 Hot Rod ace Jock Campbell in the formula. Heat One saw John McFarlane take an early lead in the Chevette but the field were chasing hard and Suffolk's Gavin Taber managed to claim the victory on his HRP debut ahead of Kenny Purdie and Jock Campbell. Heat Two saw Taber featuring prominently once again but he had no answer to the pace of the MK2 Escort of Brett Sneddon as the former Stock Rod Track Champion took an excellent win ahead of Taber and Thomas Dilly. The feature final saw heat winners Taber and Sneddon battling it out for the win with Kenny Purdie not too far behind but it was England's Gavin Taber who held on to take his second win of the night ahead of Sneddon and Purdie.

The highlight of the racing programme this past Saturday was the Stock Rods Scottish Championship with Chris Lattka defending the title he won in 2016 on the back of a vintage 2017 where he has claimed the National Points title plus the British and European Championships. However, he would have his work cut out as a strong field of 18 of the best Stock Rod racers in Scotland assembled in the pits for the grid draw. It was Gary Dean who drew pole position for heat one and he took full advantage as he took an excellent win ahead of defending champion Chris Lattka and Gary Nicholls. The second heat was lined up with drivers starting in reverse order from heat one and it was former Scottish Champion Jonathan Lattka who took the win ahead of brother Chris and National Champion Siobhan Martin. The two heats saw a Lattka lock-out of the front row with defending champion Chris on pole position and Jonathan on the outside while Siobhan Martin would start on the outside of row two with Darren McAlpine on her inside. Jonathan Lattka made a blistering start at the drop of the green flag as he managed to take the lead from the outside of the front row but the battle raged on as the Lattka brothers and Siobhan Martin battled it out over the lead with no quarter asked and none given but it was Jonathan Lattka who was at the front when it mattered as he took the 2017 Scottish Championship ahead of outgoing champion Chris Lattka while Connar Venters managed to claim a fantastic third spot after the unlucky Siobhan Martin was spun out late in the race.

The event was rounded off with a spectacular Banger Ramp Rollover event which saw eight intrepid test pilots take to the skies over the HRP Lochgelly Raceway ramp. All of the drivers put in spectacular efforts but it was Lee Ferns who thrilled the crowd with the best jump of the night; narrowly beating Jason McAlpine and Sean McConnachie who enjoyed twice the fun as he jumped the ramp not once but twice!!!

A fantastic event at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and it is a short turnaround this week as HRP Lochgelly Raceway hosts its penultimate event of the 2017 season this Friday night with the 1300 Stock Cars Mr Gunn Trophy headlining the event; the 1300s will be joined by a large entry of Ministox plus CC Rods racing and 2.0 Hot Rods – racing starts this Friday October 27th at 7pm.

HRP October Speed Weekend - A Report
Added Monday 16th October 2017


An un-seasonally pleasant weekend of weather greeted a huge number of drivers, teams and fans as they gathered in huge numbers for the final HRP Lochgelly Raceway Speed Weekend of 2017 with huge championship implications for the National Micro Bangers and ProStocks.

The National Micro Bangers had gathered in huge numbers once again for their World Cup which has been held at HRP Lochgelly Raceway for the past five seasons and featured drivers from all over the UK with notable interest from East Anglia as well as the North of England who featured a large contingent from the Gravediggers Banger Team and Northern Ireland. The first race was for non-qualifiers and featured around forty cars and set the tone for the rest of the evening with action from the drop of the green flag! England's Jason Smy came through the chaos to take the first win of the night. The next race for the Micro Bangers was the main event of the weekend, the World Cup, and the grid made for a spectacular sight with around SEVENTY cars on track in their now traditional three-wide starting grid. It didn't take long for the expected chaos to ensue as cars were sent in every direction as the green flag fell. It was difficult to know where to look most of the time with action all over the track but it was another Englishman Josh Vowden who came through the carnage and the chaos to be crowned 2017 National Micro Banger World Cup Champion with Northern Irish duo Leonard Dunn and 2017 Unlimited Banger World Champion Steven Bolton in third in a race that started with around seventy drivers and finished with only seven cars running!!! The first all-comers race featured another large entry of cars and the victory went to Lee Kingsnorth from England with fellow Englishman Daz Prestige claiming the win in the second all-comers race which was the final action of Saturday night.

Sunday produced a great day of action for the Micro Bangers too with their Open Scottish Championship first on the agenda which mustered a grid of over forty cars. Former Saloon European Champion Georgie Boult Jr took up the running after the expected early lap sorting out and looked odds-on to take a relatively easy win until Jack Ansell got involved from a lap down and this saw a chaotic finish to the race but Boult managed to get his nose ahead at the finish line to take the title ahead of Lee Kingsnorth and Scotsman Tam Melrose. The two all-comers races went the way of Kingsnorth and Kenny Stephenson before Michael Gill was the last car running in a spectacular Demolition Derby.

The ProStocks arrived in fantastic numbers for the weekend with a huge contingent from Northern Ireland seeing the entry comfortably into the mid-thirties for their biggest event of the year - the ProStocks World Cup. The Northern Irish have dominated the major championships for the formula in recent years but hopes were high for a home win as the first of two heats got underway to determine the grid for the main race. Stephen Boyd is no stranger to victory lane and the Northern Irishman came through to take victory in heat one ahead of Scotland's Paul Barron and Northern Ireland's Stephen Haugh. Heat Two was lined up with the cars in the reverse order from heat one but it was another victory for Northern Ireland as Alan Haugh took the win ahead of his compatriots Leonard Dunn (the defending World Cup Champion) and Karl Smyth but spare a thought for Scotland's Jason McAlpine who was leading the race by a mile when a throttle issue ended his challenge. There was a strong Northern Irish flavour to the front end of the grid and it soon became a battle of attrition with several cars falling by the wayside as the laps continued to dwindle with Del McLaughlin leading the way for much of the race with Alan Haugh a few car lengths behind. It Looked like a foregone conclusion as the McLaughlin took the last lap board with Haugh still seemingly too far behind to mount a challenge but Haugh gave it everything he had on the last corner and managed to make contact with McLaughlin's car. This sent both flying towards the safety fence and it looked like Dunn may well sneak through to retain his title but Haugh managed to get the power down and cross the line first ahead of McLaughlin and Dunn with less than a car length separating the top three in a blanket finish – top notch stuff!!!

Sunday's ProStocks action began with the coveted Christopher Burke Memorial Race which was also for the 2017 HRP Gold Cup and the Northern Irish continued their stranglehold as Dan Shannon managed to overhaul Karl Smyth in the closing stages for the win. The remaining heats of the weekend went the way of Stephen Boyd and Smyth to make six wins out of six races for the Northern Irish - true domination but some incredible action from the ProStocks.

The 1300 Stock Cars were also in attendance for two days of domestic action and it was great to see Lochgelly's Euan Mathieson showing off the silver roof as National Points Champion. Euan and brother Andrew certainly livened up the first heat with their antics and both cars required surgery after the race which was won by Craig Haxton. The second heat saw some more great action with the drivers getting stuck in but Sandy Allen held on to take the win ahead of Haxton and Scottish Champion Billy Wilson. The feature final was another entertaining race with Wilson coming through to take the win from the rear of the grid with Allen and Haxton claiming the two remaining podium spots.

Sunday's 1300 Stock Car action saw Euan Mathieson and Jock Whyte using each other's cars while it was also great to see Eddie Corr back on track after a lengthy absence due to a knee operation. Sandy Allen was enjoying a great weekend and picked up two heat wins to see him elevated to blue grade for the feature final which was won in fine style by Craig Haxton from Billy Wilson and Dean McGill.

The Ninja Karts were also on track this past Sunday at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and, after a whites and yellows win for the ever-improving Demi Ritchie, it was Charlie Hardie who confirmed himself as the 2017 national points Champion with a spectacular hat-trick of victories.

A fantastic weekend of action at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and CHAMPIONSHIP FEVER is set to continue this Saturday October 21st as the Stock Rods contest their Scottish Championship (currently held by Chris Lattka). Lattka will face some stiff competition if he plans to hold on to his title and it promises to be a great night of racing with the Classic Hot Rods, Junior Productions and Ninja Karts also in action PLUS the annual Banger Ramp Rollover event. The action gets underway at HRP Lochgelly Raceway this Saturday from 6pm.
