An eventful night at Lochgelly Raceway as all five formula put on a show worth talking about!! Though, with a number of drivers falling foul to dockings throughout the night, the results as they crossed the line weren’t always as they seemed!
The ProStocks kicked off the evening with the first race of the night with just under 20 cars taking to the track. Kev Bell continued his fine form as he stormed off out in front as he took his second win of the season, finishing ahead of Graeme Fleming and Mark Boyle – who have both started the season showing some great pace. Heat 2 of the night seen reigning National Points Champion Tam Melrose take an excellent win with multiple cars challenging in the closing stages of the race. Kev Bell, John Mason, Paul Winfield and Tam himself exchanged positions over the last few laps, with it being Bell who again crossed the line first, but was ultimately docked for being a little too eager off his marks on one of the race restarts! The ProStock final was again another entertaining race with a yellow flag stoppage midway through the race with a couple of cars stranded on the raceway. From the restart, Brandon Morton challenged the David Russell car in front a little too early, with both cars hitting the wall on the exit of turn 4 before veering across the track. Behind them, Graeme Fleming was another driver who was a little sharp off his mark, overtaking the Mark Boyle car before the green flag which would result in him being demoted from his ultimate finishing position at the end of the race!! Unfortunately for Fleming, this would see his race win removed from him, with Darren Rae inheriting the victory, with Jason McAlpine in the runner up spot!

The Junior Productions, have been the talk of the winter with a number of new drivers coming into the formula, and with most, this now being their second outing of the season as they continue to develop their racecraft and confidence. With the youngsters, the racing can always be a little unpredictable with errors being made, and Saturday night certainly was that. Heat 1 of the night for the ‘non-contact’ class seen a number of race stoppages with a number of cars spinning out of contention – Chloe Baird, who was making her first outing of the season in a tidy new car spun around on turn 3, before Cole Ford was also sent into the Baird car just as the yellow flags came out. Lewis Dickson, who was having his best meeting in the formula to date, led for a good number of laps before being overcome by the closing pack, which seen him finish in 4th place, though a docking for going a little too soon, seen him docked to 6th. Declan Dixon, another newcomer to the class this year looked to have found some excellent pace which seen him challenge for the podium places throughout the night, and would have left with a few more points had it not been for some bad luck and being caught up in some incidents. Chelsey Rainey took the opening race win as she continued her fine form at Lochgelly Raceway, with Jase Wall inheriting second and Leona Anderson third place following the docking of Declan Dixon for some contact. Heat 2 of the night was another lively encounter with a number of drivers again falling foul to the race steward for jump starts or contact! Koddi Wright took the victory in the second heat of the night, which only seen one yellow flag stoppage, with Rainey crossing the line in second, before being demoted to fourth having been judged to have pushed her way past the 73 car. This promoted Leona Anderson up into second, with Walle in third. The meeting final was again, another excellent race with a last lap coming together between Koddi Wright and Chelsey Rainey as they both fought for the second place behind runaway leader Jensen Bell! As it would transpire though, both cars got caught up, which opened the door for the pack to come through with Jensen Bell taking his second final victory of the season, finishing ahead of Jase Wall and Leona Anderson.

The Superstox, a little down on numbers from the first outing of the season, seen another decent evening of racing – with the star and superstar graded drivers having to work hard to earn their points on the night. Steven Ballentine will be cursing his luck – despite coming away with another heat win in the opening race of the night. Northern Irish based driver Steven Haugh looked to be a good contender from blue grade throughout the evening – and his hat-trick of runner up places show just how consistent he was on the night, although, was perhaps a tad fortunate to take the place in the final. Coming back to Ballentine, having took the first win of the night, seen an issue with his car in heat 2 which forced him to drop back the order whilst running at the front of the pack, before the final – a race that he seemed to have comfortably in the bag – was snatched from his grasp on the very last corner. A fast chasing Bryan Forrest tried his utmost to take the win from Ballentine, and went in with a last corner challenge – making contact with the rear bumper of the Ballentine car, though it wasn’t enough as Ballentine, or so he thought, carried on around the corner with Forrest running wide towards the barrier. As Ballentine exited turn 4 though for the final time, a group of back markers tangled, which seen Adam Low spinning in front of Ballentine and blocking his way through – this enabled Forrest to dart up the inside and claim an incredible victory, with Haugh also following him through, with Ballentine recovering to finish in third position.

The CC Rods – making their first outing of the season – seen a strong number of cars on track, with some excellent livery on some of the cars! Newcomer Brandon Cuming looked to hit the ground running, as he showed some excellent pace from the white grade, though couldn’t stay with they Raymond Brown car as Raymond stormed to victory, inheriting the win from Lee Wotherspoon who was removed from the result for an alleged spin to the wall on Kenny Pitcaithly! Brown just managed to hold onto the win as he came under intense pressure from Kyle Hutchison in the closing stages as he negotiated a group of back markers! Heat 2 of the night, and it was newcomer Brandon Cuming that took the win, with Pitcaithly given 2nd and Brown 3rd. The meeting final seen Raymond Brown start on pole position, a race that would see a number of cars come together on the opening lap resulting in a complete restart! Early casualties from the opening start included Kenny Pitcaithly, Steven Duffy and Emma Kirk. As the race finally got underway, it was Scottish Champion Brandon Gourlay who looked to have found the pace as he quickly found himself out in front and racing away from the following group of cars. There would be no catching Brandon as he took an excellent race win, finishing ahead of Ryan Cameron and Raymond Brown.

The 2.0 Hot Rods were the fifth and final formula to get onto track on Saturday night, and again, the non-contact class provided some excellent racing, with a number of talking points throughout the evening, with a number of drivers falling foul of racing infringements in each of the races. Cameron Willacy continued his excellent start to the season as he took yet another race win, with Greg Honeyman also continuing his great run of form as he took 2nd place in the opening race behind Willacy, with Motorsport Transmissions proprietor Wayne Lee taking a third position in what is his best result of the season to date. Heat 2 of the night seen Greg Honeyman take another race win, with the battle behind him being intense. Hardie, coming through from the red grade charged relentlessly and was soon challenging for 2nd place with Wayne Lee. Hardie made his move late and got his nose up the inside of the Lee car, with Lee turning across to take the corner which seen both cars come together with Lee spinning around. This enabled Honeyman to stretch his lead at the front of the pack with little to no chance of him being caught despite Hardie’s best efforts. Willacy brought his car home in third place as he again took away another excellent haul of points on the night. The meeting final seen Hardie make the best of the starts as he punished Honeyman for leaving a gap on the inside of turn 1. As the pack of cars exited turn 2, it was almost 3 abreast with cars bumper to bumper – Honeyman was stuck on the outside, Secker middle, and Campbell inside. Honeyman and Secker tangled somewhat, with Honeyman then going hard into turn 3 into the back of the Secker car pushing Secker out wide before Secker came back over with Honeyman spinning Secker on the exit of turn 4!! The spinning Secker car rolled across track, being narrowly avoided by most, though the unfortunate Wayne Lee seen his car collected by the back end of the 529 car!
