An entertaining night of racing on Saturday night at Lochgelly Raceway seen the National Micro Bangers look to take the plaudits with plenty of action throughout the night, with big hits, spins, follow-ins and all round great action.

The evening started off with a moment of reflection following the sudden loss of Northern Irish youngster Jack Morrow who passed away on Saturday morning much to the shock of the stock car community.

The Ninja Karts were the first race of the night as the whites and yellows took to the track for some valuable track experience. Blair Innes has become a bit of a pro when it comes to the Whites and Yellows race, having picked a few race wins in this race during his Ninja Kart career – Mathew McIntyre led the way early on in what is his final Ninja Kart appearance, before he got into a good race with Innes, with Innes battling over several laps to make a move on the 529 kart of McIntyre. Innes would be able to move through into the lead though. A race caution following a coming together between a few karts, with Riley Stagg spinning around and being collected by the oncoming Christopher Lattka and Ryan Love, with Lattka finding himself squeezed against the armco and up onto 2 wheels. Following on from the caution, Innes got away well and took the win ahead of Jamie Balfour, who crossed the line just ahead of McIntyre with Alfie MacLeod next across the line. It was good to see Jayden McKie and Alix Martin both make their race debuts, whilst Ryan Love looked to have found some confidence on track too. Heat 1 would see all karts take to the track, with the blues and reds joining the whites and yellows that had already been out. Jayden Jeffrey took a well deserved race win following a run of quite bad luck. Jeffrey didn’t get it easy though, with Rory Wilson putting him under sustained pressure for 5 or 6 laps, as the karts raced side by side and in and out of back markers. The lead 2 though displayed some brilliant driving, with it looking like Wilson had the edge at one stage, but Jeffrey managed to hang on and move back ahead of Wilson on the closing lap, with Wilson having to settle for 2nd place. Further back the field, there were some brilliant racing going on, with Jamie Balfour finishing in 3rd place. Heat 2 of the evening seen another superb race from the youngsters, interrupted by one yellow flag though. A few karts found themselves spun on the exit of turn 2, with most able to get away quickly – however, the Alfie McLeod kart had cut out and he was unable to rejoin and was stranded across the track as the yellow flags were called. As the race got underway, the star graded drivers made inroads and soon found themselves battling for the lead places. Rory Wilson had moved ahead of the pack, and found himself opening up a gap to the chasing pack behind as he went on to claim the victory. Behind him though, Henry Hunn and Tommy Melrose both had an excellent race with little between the two throughout, with Melrose closing the gap in the latter laps as Hunn got caught in some traffic. Hunn held on for 2nd place though, finishing only 2 tenths of a second ahead of Melrose. As the karts came out on track for the meeting final, a brief shower came down dampening the track and resulting in some greasy conditions. Early on, a number of karts found themselves spinning around and quickly recovering without any stoppages required. Rayah Burns, Louie Hendry and Jayden Jeffrey were just a few of the drivers to fall foul to the conditions, but all three put in some fantastic drives as they took away some good points – Jeffrey found himself spinning twice during the race, one after a coming together with Melrose resulting in a quick 360 and not losing much time, and once more, a little later as he lost it himself, dropping him back a couple of places, though did still manage a great fifth position finish. Up front, Rory Wilson drove impeccably as he took his second win of the evening, as he closes the gap at the top of the National Points Charts to within striking distance. English based drivers Henry Hunn and Harley Flegg took 2nd and 3rd positions, with Melrose being penalized for his contact on Jeffrey dropping him down to fourth place upon review.

The CC Rods were with us for the 2nd week in succession, with a few drivers unable to attend, it was an opportunity for a few others to step up and look to come away with some hard earned points. Heat 1 seen newcomer, Baillie Glencross make the best possible start to the night as she stormed away at the start and went on to take a commanding race victory, with Gorman and Christie finishing in 2nd and 3rd unable to put any pressure on the Glencross car. Heat 2, it didn’t quite go the same way though, as Baillie found herself colliding with the 369 car of Graham Pow who had previously just had a coming together with John Gorman. A caution was called for with Glencross and Pow stricken on track. Brian Allen continued to show the good pace he had last week, as he took victory in heat 2 ahead of Kevin Hutchison and Craig Mason. The meeting final seen a few cars missing following the damage in heat 2. This gave John Gorman the perfect opportunity to race away early on, and go on to take victory, as Brian Allen, Ian Christie and Craig Mason battled behind.

The Stock Rod formula has provided some fantastic racing here at Lochgelly Raceway over the last year or so, with very little between much of the drivers allowing for some excellent competitive racing. Saturday night was no different with 3 different race winners once more. Raymond Brown has found form once more after a challenging few meetings where he has struggled, and he’ll be delighted to have came away with a victory in the opening heat on Saturday night. Raymond followed this up with a 6th place finish in heat 2, and a retirement in the meeting final. Teri Linden started off her career in the stock rods excellent late in 2023, but a run of bad luck seen her form dip away, however, Teri was back to her best on Saturday night and was arguably one of the drivers of the meeting, coming away with 2 second place finishes in the heats, and a 5th place finish in the meeting final. Fraser Anderson looks to have got to grips with the stock rod formula after a mixed season so far. Anderson took away a P3 in the opening heat, where he followed this up in heat 2 with a victory. It was a hard fought victory though, as he had a train of cars in close contention not far behind him, led by Teri Linden. The heats were dominated by the lower graded drivers, with only Kyle Hutchison being able to break into the top 5 from the blue or red graded drivers. The final was a different affair though, as National Points Champion Siobhan Martin put in a sterling drive to claim the victory, despite finishing outside the top 10 in each of the two heats. This haul of points, with Gary Dean missing, moves her 50 points clear, and now in an uncatchable position as she once more is set to be the HRP National Points Champion. David Crichton and John Lee Green, both had excellent race meetings throughout the night, with Cricthon looking back to his best and in the form that seen him be a mainstay within the blue and red grades for the best part of the last 5 seasons, with the last 12 months perhaps being the most challenging of his stock rod career to date. 2nd place in the meeting final was a well deserved result for Crichton for his perseverance to get the car back on form. Kyle Hutchison completed the top 3, with John Lee Green finishing in fourth place just behind.

The National Micro Bangers raced for the first time in 2024 here at Lochgelly Raceway, with it being round 1 of the Micro Banger World Cup Qualifying Series, where drivers look to stake a claim for a place on the Fife Medical Group World Cup come October. A decent entry of cars took to the track and set about putting in an entertaining performance from the outset. Heat 1 seen a few drivers get stuck in, with Keiran Tweed putting in a big hit mid-way through the race, ending his evening in the process however with some terminal damage to his car. Jamie Sangster was in the mood too, as he set about spinning multiple cars out as he made his way through the grid. Joss Proctor also put in a few hits throughout the race, whilst taking a few along the way. Tam Melrose raced his way to the front as he took the win ahead of Jamie Sangster and James Slater. Heat 2 was another lively affair from the Micro Bangers, with numerous drivers all getting stuck in, and putting in some epic hits, follow ins and entertaining racing. Sangster once more was moving his way through the pack, getting stuck in, before he found himself stuck onto another car and unable to move free, before being picked up himself in the process. Dylan Skyes, Grant Barker, Chris Watson and Joss Proctor all got stuck in, with only a handful of cars completing race distance. Melrose once more took the win, with 2023 World Cup Winner, Sean McConnachie finishing 2nd and Grant Barker in 3rd. The meeting final once more seen some more big hits go in. Lee Clarke and Grant Barker getting stuck in, whilst McConnachie was in the middle of the action too. Proctor, Barker and a few others put in numerous hits throughout the race, with Joss and Jake Proctor, Dylan Skyes and Chris Watson all actively participating in the DD with some big hits, head on attempts and killing each others cars. Fraser Combe joined in later, whilst Dale McCardle plodded round in his first banger event as well. The Micro Bangers are back with us at Lochgelly Raceway on the 29th June, in round 2 of their series, in an event which will also see a DD Champion crowned – with an additional wildcard spot available in the World Cup for the overall winner.

This weekend is a 2 day special event at Lochgelly, with 2 British Championship’s being raced for, in addition to a few Scottish Open Championship events. The A1 Containers R Us Superstox British Championship takes place on the Saturday night, whilst the 2.0 Hot Rods British Championship takes place on the Sunday afternoon.
