Can Hutchison Retain The Scottish Can Hutchison Retain The Scottish
The 2023 CC Rod Scottish Championship is up for grabs this Saturday at Lochgelly Raceway. Kevin Hutchison took the title in 2022 and will be doing his utmost to retain the title for another season. Kevin Hutchison has had a season that started off slowly, but has picked up as the season has progressed, and he will no doubt, be on form this weekend as he looks to defend his title. Ian Christie has been a front runner on a regular basis in the formula this season, as he eyes the points championship is as well. Not always the quickest driver on track, but certainly one of the most experienced, and his experience shows as he holds a solid line and when required to do so, isn’t scared to have a go around the outside. James Dickie has been one of the quickest drivers on track of late since making a return to action, and with luck on his side, he will be one to watch on Saturday. Brandon Gourlay is a previous winner of the event, and will be hoping to win the title once more following his return to the formula. Brandon is well experienced around the raceway, having raced here since his Junior Banger days a number of years ago!! Lee Scott is an established CC Rod pilot, and has been chapping at the door for silverware for a number of years – can he make 2023 his year?? The grid is littered with drivers capable of success, and the formula this year, has been mightily competitive, and predicting a winner is near on impossible – but one thing for sure is that the formula will provide a top class night of racing, with some excellent door to door battles!
The Superstox are racing for their John Gibson Memorial event this weekend, and the formula has provided some superb racing throughout the 2023 season. John Gibson was one of the guys around the pits that would help anyone, but was most notably remembered as one of the Gilchrist team members over the decades. Ciaran Adams superbly won the event in 2022, whilst Colin Frame won the inaugural staging of it in 2021. The likes of Kenny McKenzie, Jack Turbitt and Mark Brady will all fancy a shot at glory this weekend.

The National Hot Rods are back with us for there third qualifying round of the campaign, and its great to see a few more drivers booked in than we had in the last event. The formula is capable of providing some fantastic racing, with drivers showing each other respect on track, and giving each other room to race. Gordon Alexander and William Hardie have won the finals in the first 2 rounds of the campaign, and I’m sure the other drivers on track will be looking to take the glory on Saturday night. The Scottish campaign is littered with talent, with the Scottish drivers all scoring some great results at the big events around the country over the last few years. A highly competitive night of racing is guaranteed from the elite of non-contact oval racing – the national hot rods. We’d like to thank Sibbald Training for the sponsorship of the meeting final tyre this weekend.

The ORCi Ministox are back in action with us at Lochgelly, and the formula need no introduction. The youngsters put on an incredible showing of racing, wherever they race, and we expect another action packed night of racing this Saturday. Jake Wilson will be looking to show off his Irish Open Championship, which he won over at Nutts Corner last weekend. Charlie Hardie, Demi Ritchie and Kerr Paterson will be looking to make good progress from the rear of the grid as they all look to maximise their points haul. In Ministox, it is never simple though, with most drivers on track capable of success, it’ll be very difficult for those starting from the back to come away with many wins – the bumpers will need to be used in an efficient manner. David Philp, Rian Mitchell, Cole Ford, Dean Heeps et al, have all been in great form too, and will all be hoping to be the driver to cross the line in 1st!

The racing gets underway at 6pm this Saturday, with spectator gates opening at 3pm. Drivers sign in office will open at 2pm.
