Hot Rod Scottish Up For Grabs Hot Rod Scottish Up For Grabs
Keith Brown will be aiming to defend his Scottish Championship this weekend as the 2.0 Hot Rods battle it out for the honour of wearing the saltire for the next 12 months. Brown has been an excellent Scottish Champion, regardless of the outcome, showing the roof off not only in Scotland, but in Northern Ireland, England and the Netherlands. The 2.0 Hot Rod formula are renowned for providing close, fast and extremely competitive racing, with no driver looking to leave the door open to be challenged, overtaking requires a lot of skill, with an element of risk involved in each manoeuvre as well. Mark Dews has been incredibly quick throughout the season, and will be hoping for some good fortune this Saturday as he aims win the Scottish Championship. One of the cleanest drivers on the track, he may have to get his elbows out to give himself the best opportunity of success. Frankie Cunningham returned to racing earlier this season, and has taken a number of race wins in the process. He’ll be looking to keep his nose clean as he looks to give himself a chance of glory. Alike Frankie, Kerr Paterson returned to racing after a few years away. Kerr has won numerous titles in the past, and will be hoping that things come good for him this weekend as he bids to add the Scottish Championship to his list of achievements.

Ethan Doull often raises his game at the big events, and has shown he has the pace to compete with any other driver on his day – Ethan has an edge of aggression that will no doubt come in handy at times, but it may also see him penalized if things go wrong! An exciting driver to watch, and certainly one that has many great years ahead of him in Hot Rod racing! Cameron Willacy has progressed through our Junior Production ranks, and has been a front runner in the 2.0 Hot Rods for a few years now. Another clean driver, and one that gives it his all, he will be hoping it all falls into place this weekend, as he bids to become the 2.0 Hot Rod Scottish Champion!

Allan Gibson made the switch from Superstox a couple of season ago, and has took a bit of time adjusting to the 2.0 Hot Rod, but has on occasions, shown great pace that will be a match for any driver out there. Allan has struggled for consistency though, and that is one thing that will be frustrating him knowing he has the pace and machinery to compete. A bit of a dark horse, but if things fall into place for him, he will take some beating! Gerry Hendry has been one of the quickest drivers in the formula over the last couple of seasons. Work and other commitments has meant he hasn’t been able to race as much as he would like to have done, which has meant him fluctuating between the blue and red grade on a regular basis. However, the Scottish Open winner will be looking to have his car hitting the sweet spot this Saturday, as he would love nothing more than to the Scottish Championship!

Ryan Dunbar, Colin Wotherspoon, Chris Leslie and Shuggy Brown are all expected to take to the track, with each of the four drivers showing great improvements with each passing event.

The ProStocks are with us once more, and they are out in force, with around 20 cars expected to be in attendance – a fantastic number for a formula that looked to be struggling a couple of seasons ago. The ProStocks often provide great exciting racing with a mixed range of abilities on track, and a number of drivers proving to be a handful to overcome. Hollie Ritchie will make her first appearance in the ProStock at Lochgelly, having recently retired from the Junior Production formula. Gavin Ritchie has been in great form as well, as he looks set to battle it out for the points championship this season. Callum McIvor has came on as a driver in the formula, and has looked to be a front running driver on a regular basis – a few mechanical gremlins has halted his progress though, which he\\\'ll be hoping to have overcame this weekend. Lewis Gilchrist is only in his first season in the formula, but has been a front running driver for the majority of that time, and will no doubt be extremely difficult to catch from the white grade this weekend.

The Service Central Ninja Karts are with us once more, as the enter the final few meetings of the season here at Lochgelly Raceway. Shevill Jnr cannot be caught in the points championship, and looks set to end his Ninja Kart career as the National Points Champion once more. Behind Shevill in the charts though, things are a lot closer together – Tommy Melrose, William Hunn, Katie Lee Smart and Henry Hunn are all closely matched, with very little between them on a regular basis on track. Abigail Chalmers has found great form of late, and is making a late charge up the points, as is Jayden Lee Jeffrey! Points have been harder to come by though, with the improvement of many drivers starting ahead of them on track – Sophia Allan, Blair Innes, Rayah Burns, Rory Wilson and Christopher Lattka have all shown they have the pace, and confidence to come away with podium results, with each of them showing a large improvement throughout the season. Louie Hendry is another driver that regularly comes away with top 5 finishes, though often flies under the radar, with consistent race finishes. Layton Cairns has the pace to compete at the front, but hasn’t had much in the way of good fortune this year, with numerous DNFs. Jayden Roff has missed a number of meetings this year, but when he has been in attendance, he has found himself battling for regular top 5 finishes. Jamie Balfour, Alfie MacLeod and Mathew McIntyre have both found confidence throughout the year, with each of the drivers picking up some good places, with ever improving lap times. Balfour in particular, has looked quick and capable of taking away race wins, but has lacked the bit of luck that will see him take victory.

The Stock Rods are the final formula in attendance this weekend, and it will be an interesting meeting, with the formula having made the switch to the Hoosier tyre. It is the first time the Scottish drivers will have raced with it, and it could open up the grid to some very unpredictable results as the drivers find a setup that works for them. There are a few drivers that are making a first appearance of the season this weekend. Sean Naismith is set to join us, with John Bremner making a return to Stock Rods, whilst Junior Production Scottish Champion, Koddi Wright becomes the latest graduate of Junior Productions to enter the formula. Craig Harrison is another driver that returns to action having sat out a large part of the season. If the lower grade drivers can get the cars dialled in, they may be difficult to overcome!

The main event gets underway at 6pm, with the Ninja Kart whites and yellows race taking place at 5.45pm. Spectator gates will open at 3pm. The driver sign in office will open at 2pm.
