Meeting Date: Saturday 7th October

Double Header Scottish Championship Double Header Scottish Championship Double Header Scottish Championship
There are two exciting Scottish Championships to look forward to this Saturday night at Lochgelly Raceway in a Scottish Championship Double Header event. Both the Superstox and Stock Rods will be battling it out for the opportunity to wear the Saltire for the next 12 months. The National Hot Rods, Classic Hot Rods and ProStocks all also feature.

The Stock Rods have had a good season here at Lochgelly Raceway, with numbers increasing throughout the season, with the switch to Hoosier’s seemingly attracting a few more cars on track in the process too. There will be a number of drivers that have to start the qualifying heats from the rear of the grid though, having not competed in enough meetings to be eligible in the grid draw. James Robertson looked quick last time out and will be hoping to make further improvements to his setup as he bids to win the Scottish Championship. Siobhan Martin will be looking to retain the title for another season – the National Points Champion struggled somewhat on the first outing on the tyre, but will no doubt have learned a lot from that experience, and we can expect the 25 car to be back on the pace and challenging for race wins this weekend. Gary Dean has been a consistent front runner over the last few years, having won the Scottish Championship in 2021, Dean will be looking to claim the title once more. David Crichton hasn’t had his best season so far, but, he will be hoping for a strong performance – and given that he performed well on the Hoosier at the last outing on the 16th September, he will be hoping that will be a sign of progress and he’ll be hoping to be in contention come Saturday night. Kyle Hutchison will be hoping for a better evening this weekend than last time though, where he struggled to find any sort of setup for the car and ultimately retired from the meeting as a result. There has been a number of drivers that have recently came into the formula that have shown good pace, but will find the going tough from the rear of the grid in the qualifying heats. Koddi Wright won 2 of the 3 races last time out in his first outing in the Stock Rod formula, whilst Dean McGill took the other. Sean Naismith likewise took away some good results for his first appearance. With around 20 cars expected to be in attendance, it promises to be an entertaining evening of racing from the Stock Rod formula.

The Superstox have had one of their best season’s for quite some time here in Scotland, with regular numbers of between 15 and 20 cars on track. This has provided lots of great exciting racing, with super battles for race wins, and the star graded drivers having to work extremely hard to get through the traffic to fight it out for podium results. Kenny McKenzie has been in good form of late, taking away a lot of good results, and he himself, will be fancying his chances for success should he get a favourable draw for the Scottish Championship race. Jack Turbitt has found himself at the top end of the track championship throughout the season, and has taken away a lot of fantastic race results throughout. Turbitt will be hoping to take the race to whoever starts in front of him in the Scottish Championship and will no doubt put the front bumper to good use as and when required. Ciaran Adams has proven to be competitive this season – holding his own, and challenging for race wins on a regular basis. Spud isn’t shy of a big hit neither, and if he is there or thereabouts in the closing stages, you can expect him to have an all or nothing style lunge! Dean Johnston is the reigning Scottish Champion, and will start the race as the favourite given his success this season so far. The European Champion will be hoping to continue his successful season as he looks to build on his list of accomplishments. Mirran Adams is set to be the sole female racer on the grid, and she’ll be excited to participate in her first Scottish Championship. Mirran has came on leaps and bounds throughout the year, and is now regularly battling for points scoring finishes. The formula has seen a large amount of race winners this season, and predicting the 2023 Scottish Championship result is near on impossible – a lot will come down to the random grid draw beforehand!

The National Hot Rods compete in their latest round of the Scottish World Qualifying Series. Last time out, we had some excellent racing from a grid size that was much improved against the previous appearances for the formula. The Nationals provided some great racing as a result, with Doug McLean, Gordon Alexander, Ross McWilliam and William Hardie all having some fantastic races. Ian Donaldson grew into the meeting, and was also right on the pace come the meeting final. Darren Scott, Alex Wilson and Marc Spence all showed great pace too, and all are capable of claiming victories. With talk of a few more drivers joining the formula in the coming months, the formula is looking up, and it’s great to see the formula provide close competitive racing.

The ProStocks are with us for the final time this season – Lewis Gilchrist will be starting from the blue grade this week, having won all three races last time out that seen him promoted up the grades. Gilchrist though, looked to be in a class of his own, and even if you started him from the very back, it looked like he would come through and challenge for the race wins too, such was his dominance last weekend. Dougie Kidd, Lee Kopacz and Richard Cairns all had some great battles last weekend. Gavin Ritchie will be hoping to score in all three races as he looks to claim the points championship for the 2023 season. The ProStocks will once more see around 20 cars take to the track and will no doubt, provide more great racing as a result.

The Classic Hot Rods are with us for the final time this season. The formula is always a joy to watch on the ovals such as the unique style of the cars. A throwback to the years gone by, but with a lot of innovation within the chassis’ and engines. A non-contact formula that provides some great overtaking, with drivers giving it full commitment into each and every corner.

The racing gets undeway at 5.30pm with spectator gates opening at 3.00pm. The drivers sign in office will open at 2pm.
