Meeting Preview

Saturday 24th August
We’re back in action this Saturday night with the latest round of action from Lochgelly Raceway. The CC Rods take centre stage with there Scottish Championship being contested, as well as a contribution from Ringtone Racepainter for the final race of the evening for the formula. The 2.0 Hot Rods are with us and we welcome World Champion Dave Leech on the grid with us, the Ninja Karts, ProStocks and 1300 Stock Cars all also in action.

The CC Rods have been a consistently impressive formula over the last couple of years at Lochgelly Raceway, with strong fields of cars on a regular basis, and the formula developing a number of good drivers. Lee Wotherspoon and Ian Donaldson will start as pre race favourites having won the majority of finals between them in 2019, however, with the emergence of the likes of Shane Allen as a force to be reckoned with, it’ll be no plain sailing for the star graded drivers. Brandon Gourlay and Craig Watson have both shown inconsistent form throughout the season but both have the capability of snatching one of the podium places. Davie McFarlane is back out in action, the current points champion has missed the last couple of meetings but will be hoping his return will see him back on the pace. Reigning Scottish Champion Robert Cairns has recently returned to action and will be hoping to find the pace in his car again after a difficult first couple of meetings back on track. However, with the grid being formed from an ‘out of the hat’ draw, it could be anyones race depending on where they are gridded on track. There is sure to be excitement and talking points as the CC Rods go about taking there biggest title of the year.

The Ninja Karts are back with us for the 2nd meeting in succession, and have a couple of southern visitors to bolster the numbers. Hamish Plenderleith has been arguably one of the most consistent drivers of late, scoring consistently and establishing himself as one of the star graded drivers in the formula. Declan Dixon has seen a good upturn in fortunes of late and has amassed a good amount of points in the last month or so. Declan will be looking to take a few trophies away with him on Saturday night. Demi Ritchie has had her best season in the formula and has managed to maintain a red grade for the last few months, and will be hoping for another decent points haul this weekend as she looks to retain it for another month. Lewis and Aiden Duffy have both picked up the pace in 2019 and will be hoping for a rub of the green in events this weekend as they look to finish all of there races without damage. Bailey Millar competes for the final time at Lochgelly Raceway in a Ninja Kart. Bailey has had a season to remember and will progress from the formula as a multi champion. The Ninja Kart class always provides excellent racing, and with around 25 karts on track, it looks set to be another great evening of racing from the youngsters.

The ProStocks formula has been in a bit of a limbo status of late, with drivers not all fully in agreement with the recent rule change regarding the tyres. It is hoped that the numbers in the formula will begin to pick up again with drivers returning to the track. Dean McGill has been the key performer in the class over the last couple of months, however the likes of John Jackson, Dougie Kidd and Ian Christie are all capable of being a match for the McGill car. The bumpers are there to be used in the formula, and it very often is the case that we see a few hits being exchanged between a number of drivers.

The 1300 Stock Cars seen a few new drivers out last week, and it is hoped that they will be back out on track with us again this weekend. The formula is renowned for on track entertainment with big hits around the raceway. Craig Haxton is often in the thick of the action and will be looking to score well before he goes back off shore with work. Steven Gold has seen his car in good form lately and will be hoping to take a few more race wins this weekend.

Finally, the 2.0 Hot Rods are in back with us. Wayne Lee was due to be out with us last time out but technical problems curtailed his evening before the first race, whilst Scott Devine made his first outing of the season. Both drivers are expected to be with us this weekend, whilst Cameron Willacy is due to make is first outing in the formula since progressing from the Junior Production class at the end of last year. Kevin Stewart will be hoping for a better outing than he had last time out, whilst Jim Pitcaithly will be hoping to score another good haul of points from the back of the field. Gerry Hendry is expected to make his first outing at home in a number of months after suffering damage a few months ago. Multi champion Dave Leech will be with us as he shows off his Gold Roof that he won at Ipswich in July.

Pre meeting practice takes place 1530-1630, with the first race starting at 6pm. Ensure you join us for 5 fantastic formula on Saturday night.
