Satuday night at Lochgelly Raceway will see another frantic affair of racing, with a large force of non-contact racing on offer.

The National Hot Rods by everyone’s admission, have struggled in Scotland over the last few years, however, there are signs of a resurgence, and with ten cars having booked to race for the first time at a domestic event for several years – the racing should be more entertaining to watch. Steven Armit will debut his brand new Fiesta National Hot Rod – as he displayed at the HRP show a few weeks back. Doug McLean has been having an issue with a misfire, and may not make the event, but is hopeful of having it rectified before Saturday, as he also looks to make his debut in the class in the ex Ian McGuigan car. Darren Scott and Ross Alexander are a further 2 that will be making their debut in the formula. Ross McWilliam has been the star performer in Scotland in recent times, and was recently awarded the most improved driver award by the NHRPA. James Mooney, Roy Anderson and Marc Spence are all set to be with us as the Nationals start the 2022 campaign in the best possible manner.

The Stock Rods will welcome a few new drivers into the class, Allan Hamilton, Alex McDonald, Paul Hughes and Jamie Doyle – all joining the HRP ranks in 2022. With a few drivers still not having their cars ready for action, and a good turn out of cars expected on Saturday night still, the formula certainly looks to be on an upward spiral. Siobhan Martin will likely lead the charge in 2022, as she has been a dominant figure here at HRP Lochgelly Raceway for several years now, however, Gary Dean and Darren McAlpine have proven to be a force to be reckoned with, in particular over the last 24 months with both drivers upping their game. Chris Lattka looks set to complete one final season in the formula, although isn’t booked in for this weekend (at time of writing). Northern Irish driver, Niall McFerran, now living in Scotland, is expected to be a regular at HRP in 2022, and will be on track this Saturday night. Brett and Harvey Sneddon didn’t miss too many meetings in 2021, and we expect both drivers to be in attendance on Saturday, although, haven’t yet booked in to race. A few drivers have converted to 16v over the winter months, and haven’t yet been able to source all the parts required to go racing, and as a result, will likely miss out this weekend. Nevertheless, we can expect some close non-contact racing from the Stock Rods as they never fail to entertain at Lochgelly Raceway.

The 2.0 Hot Rods make their season debut, and as has become a regular over the last few years, we will see some visiting drivers join us. Conor Hughes and Drew McKeown will be over from Northern Ireland, whilst Dave Leech and World Champion James Morris will be with us from England. World Champion, Morris, is in fact set to become a regular feature at HRP Lochgelly Raceway, with the driver showing his intention to licence with us for the 2022 campaign. Cameron Willacy and Jason Secker had some epic battles last year, with lots of door to door racing – and we can expect that to continue into 2022 as the 2.0 Hot Rods look set to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the evening! Keith Brown has purchased his own car over the winter, and will make his debut in it this weekend, whilst Ian Donaldson and William Hardie look set to return to the grid!

The Superstox start the season off this weekend, as Dean Johnston looks to close the gap to Bryan Forrest in the quest to claim silver this season. A host of new drivers are expected to make their debut in the class soon, though it is only Ryan Cameron and Patrick Calderwood that look to have their car’s ready for the season opener, with several others expected to be out in the coming meetings. A number of rebuilds and part availability has hindered a few drivers in their quest to make it out, though we are sure the drivers on track, will certainly do their utmost to put on a show! Mark Brady showed off a stunning new car at the HRP show as well, and had a blast in practice with it, and it certainly looks like it’ll be quick out of the box. Mark will be hoping to have a successful season in the formula, having spent the best part of a year building up the new car. Adam Low, is never scared to put the bumper in, and will make things as difficult as possible for those around him to progress – as he looks to claim a win or two as well!

The UKMC Ninja Karts, have yet again taken things to a new level in terms of bookings for a season opener! Just under 30 karts are booked to race at the time of writing, with the possibility of a few more still to book! We welcome Jayden-Lee Jeffrey, Blair Innes, and Nate Wotherspoon into the formula, who all look set to make their racing debut’s on Saturday night. A string of visitors including World Champion Layton Hughes are set to join us on track – other notably visitors include William Hunn, Arthur Ware, Murray Hall, Joby Hall, and Coelan Fegan. Jack Connor finished the 2021 season in exceptional form, and may well be the one to beat in 2022- Jack will be looking to take away a strong points haul this weekend. Kenzie Bell, Dougie Kidd and Stuart Shevill will be looking to challenge for victories as well – all four drivers will find the going tough in such a competitive, and at the same time, mixed field of karts!

Driver gates open 1pm, Driver sign in 1.30pm, and Spectator Gates 3.30pm.
