Meeting Preview

Saturday 23rd March
We’re back for more action at Lochgelly Raceway and it is the youngsters that look to be stealing the headlines!

A huge number of Ninja Karts are due to be in action – 30 at the time of writing including English visitor Jake Ashby in the 507 kart. Charlie Hardie won 3 races last time out but will be hard pushed to do the same this time out with an increase in number of karts on track. Bailey Millar will be looking to push Charlie all the way as Bailey looks for his first win of the season after narrowly missing out in the opening meeting after a great battle with Hardie. Lewis Dickson will be looking to make the most of his white grade start and will be looking for a race win on the evening – Lewis was in good form last time out and was unlucky in a couple of the races. Keiron Hay won the Whites and Yellows race, and will be looking to score a few points in this meeting too. A number of karts in the lower grades have opted to do the three main heats rather than the whites and yellows races in order to push their confidence levels further. For the Ninja Karts, it is the final meeting of the month and will therefore see a regrading done after the meeting as the grids look set to be reshuffled come April!

The Ministox are in action for the 2nd successive week and for the 3rd time this season, English visitor Aaron Richards is due to be in attendance with us. All credit must go to Aaron and his team putting in the miles week after week, they are a credit to the sport with the effort and commitment shown. Aaron didn’t have the best of luck last week and will be hoping for a change in fortunes this week. Rian Mitchell debuted in the 172 car last week, taking over from brother Micheal who has now retired, although it is rumoured he may be out in a banger later this year. Robbie Armit has been making great progress in his Ministox and has scored a number of points from the back of the grid already. Mitchell Gold has made a flying start to the 2019 season which see’s him top the points standings; Mitch will be hoping to get a few more points under his belt before he moves up the grades at the beginning of April. Scott Allardyce has made a steady start to the season, and although hasn’t picked up any race wins as yet, has always shown great consistency to score a lot of points. There will be a whites and yellows race to start of the meeting which has been organised in co-ordination with the Ministox Disco team.

The Stock Rods are out in force this weekend with the best turnout of the season to date, with 17 cars booked in to race. Debuts are expected for Pete Honeyman and Craig Tosh, whilst Alan Cuthbert is hoping to be back on track after sitting out the last meeting. Chris Lattka, Ricky White and Siobhan Martin will lead the charge from the back of the grid in the heats to try and score well in order to get a good grid position for the meeting final. Jamie Bell had a meeting to remember last time and will be hoping for more of the same. With 17 cars on track, the on track spectacle is sure to be enthralling as the cars dual for position. Certainly a formula worth the watch! Stuart Bannatyne has put up a tyre for the final in the Stock Rods as a little extra sponsorship.

The CC Rods are back in action sponsored by Colin Wotherspoon Joinery. Darren MacDonald is back out this time from the yellow grade after picking up a couple of race wins last time, Darren will be looking for the same kind of results this weekend. Ian Donaldson was quick last time out and was unlucky not to pick up any race wins for his efforts, but with some of the quicker lower grade driver having won a few races already and now starting a bit further back, it will give the drivers coming from the back an opportunity to catch them, maybe. Brandon Gourlay will be hoping to finish each of the races tonight in order to give him a chance of scoring well.

The final formula in action are the 1300 Stock Cars, which has seen a few extra sponsors come on board for the meeting, including Team Whyte who are going to put up extra money for the meeting final, whilst Sutherland Home Improvements and REL have put up 4 tyres between them for the 1300s as well. Sean Naismith looks set to make his debut in the car that brother Rory was due to be out in, whilst Craig Connelly looks set to make his first outing of the season, with Bobby Gold hoping to have his car ready in time too.
