Driver Bookings 2022

Added by kevin_mcqueen on Thursday 20th January
Hardie Race Promotions wishes to make all race teams aware that bookings should only be made through our website for the 2022 season.

This includes our practice sessions.

Where required, bookings may also be accepted through email, telephone or whatsapp to the HRP number. If booking via one of these methods, all information that is gathered through the website, will also be required before your booking is confirmed.

Both options to book are available within the Get In Touch menu at the top of this page.

In regards to Banger formula, it is required to complete payment [ORCi fee and event admission cost] at the time of booking in order to confirm your booking. This is due to the number of no shows from this formula in specific.

Track Hires 2022

Added by kevin_mcqueen on Tuesday 11th January
Hardie Race Promotions wishes to make all drivers and teams aware of the following change for the 2022 season.

Track Hires will be available Monday to Friday from 10-6pm (off track by 6pm). Weekend availability will be limited.

A £50 non refundable deposit will be required at the time of booking. Once your booking has been confirmed, it cannot be changed, unless by exception - ie, weather.

It remains a maximum of 4 cars per hire, at a rate of £75 per hour, subject to a minimum 2 hour hire. Any additional cars will be charged at a rate of £25 per car, per hour (minimum 2 hours).

Your booking slot is the time that you have access to the track from and until. You must be loaded up and off track by the end of your time slot. Any bookings running over their allocated time slot will be charged an additional 1 hours hire.

An electronic disclaimer will be passed to the person booking the hire, who will be responsible for ensuring all attendees complete the disclaimer.

Please note, private hire sessions are currently unavailable due to maintenance work on the track

Open practice sessions will be held on Sunday 6th, Saturday 12th and Saturday 19th February, prior to the first event of the season at a charge of £40 per driver.

Hogmanay Event

Added by Kevin on Wednesday 22nd December
Following on from the Scottish Government update yesterday, a change of process is required for the event on the 31st December.

We have considered postponing this event, however, due to uncertainty over where we can add it back in, and the number of visiting drivers with accommodation already booked, we have taken the decision to carry on with the event, with restricted numbers.

With limited numbers again only being permitted, we therefore have to restrict ticket sales, and as such, this event will now be advanced bookings only - however, if availability on the day, on the day sales will be permitted. We will advise on this on the day. Tickets can ONLY be bought through our website.

As a result of this, a flat rate will have to be charged for all attendees, this includes mechanics, concessions and those under 16.

Trackside parking tickets have been added to our website - if you have already booked and wish to add this, please do so through our advance tickets section.

For all others, including kids 12 and older, and concessions, you will be required to add the number of people to your basket - this will be listed as an ‘adult’, but will apply for all categories. Should you wish to add trackside parking, you will need to add this as well.

Drivers - we are going to ask you all to rebook through our website (get in touch > book in to race), however, in the additional information section, we need you to advise how many people will be in your team to pay at the drivers sign in office ( max 4 ).

Only those with driver/team wrist bands will be permitted access to the pit area.

We ask that those attending wear a face covering and maintain a 1m social distance from other groups.

We apologise for the inconvenience, however this is the simplest way to monitor our numbers in order for the event to go ahead.

2021 Summary

Added by Kevin on Wednesday 24th November
With the 2021 season pretty much complete, it\'s time to reflect on what has been quite some season.

Despite the pandemic putting our early season plans into chaos, 30+ race events, including 5 spectacular speed weekends, will have been recorded throughout the 2021 campaign at Lochgelly Raceway - A remarkable achievement by all accounts, and we would like to thank you all for supporting us - whether that be as a driver, part of a race team, a spectator, or one of our excellent race day officials.

Although the season kicked off with restrictions in place, with trackside parking being the only choice when we first returned to action, thankfully, restrictions eased and standing spectators were again permitted, moreso as the season went on.

Despite the difficulties and uncertainty, we were able to host the 2021 National Hot Rod European Championship weekend in late May. An event that we are proud to stage at Lochgelly Raceway, and one that always attracts most of the sport's top drivers. We are eternally grateful for the commitment of the drivers and teams for making the weekend happen - with several drivers seeing the European Championship meeting as their first meeting of the season!

It wasn't just the National Hot Rod weekend in late May that was held under restrictions - with our aim to try and get back to our pre-published fixture list as early as possible in order to avoid disrupting any plans for visitors, we again run under restrictions for our 2nd speed weekend of the season in June. The 2.0 Hot Rod British Championship and Stock Rods European Championship were the headline events, though the Rebels put on an excellent showing as well as they also contested for their own European Championship!

The Lochgelly Raceway 10 year anniversary weekend would go ahead a year later than planned in late July - and provided some of the best banger racing that the venue has witnessed through it\'s previous 11 years of existence. So much so, that there are plans afoot to run a similar event in 2022, although, with not quite as much formula in action!! The Ministox provided a feast of entertainment over the weekend, as did the Superstox class. Thankfully, the weather held out for us, and a split day of racing seen the most ever cars in attendances for 2 days of racing at the venue.

Into September, and the 1300 Stock Car World Championship would come to Lochgelly Raceway, as well as the Superstox British Championship and Legends European Championship. The 1300 Stock Cars provided some of the best racing we have ever witnessed - with some saying it is up there with some of the best World Finals they have seen - that is a credit to the drivers for turning up, and putting on a show! Nick Roots started off what would turn out to be a season of glory for him, as he took the British Championship.

The Micro Banger World Cup in October provided 2 days of thrills and spills. A better turn out of cars than, in all honesty, was expected given the rule changes at the start of the year, provided plenty of action for the buoyant crowd. The Junior Bangers and Junior Productions both put on their fair share of action as well, with a few talking points as a result!

A scintillating amount of drivers have taken to the track this year as well - some of the numbers are highlighted below
Superstox - 50+ drivers
1300 Stock Cars - 70+ drivers
Stock Rods - 45+ drivers
2.0 Hot Rods - 40+ drivers
Junior Productions - 30+ drivers
Ninja Karts - 40+ drivers
Ministox - 45+ drivers
CC Rods - 30+ drivers
ProStocks - 30+ drivers
Bangers - 160+ drivers
Plus National Hot Rods, Classic Hot Rods, Rebels and Legends!

That's around 600 drivers that have taken to the track throughout the season!

As well as the aforementioned speed weekends - there has been ample excellent meetings throughout the season - too many to mention!! We'd love to know what meeting stood out most for you, and what were your highlights from the 2021 campaign?!
On behalf of us all at Hardie Race Promotions, in association with Spedeworth Motorsports, we would like to thank you all for supporting us throughout and hope to see as many of you as possible on the 31st December for our Hogmanay special event.
Plans are well afoot for fixture planning for the 2022 campaign - where we hope to grow further on what we have done in 2021!

#thankyou #hrp #spedeworth
