The rain didnât dampen the efforts of the drivers last Saturday night at Lochgelly Raceway despite thunderstorms throughout the evening on an evening that had a lot at stake, including the deciding battle in the race for the Superstox National Points.
Jock Campbell (26) was participating in both the 2.0 Hot Rods and Classic Hot Rods which seen him quickly jump in and out of different cars between races. Despite the challenges of participating in both formula, Jock not only managed to compete in all 6 races throughout the night, but also managed to win a remarkable 5 out of 6, only missing out on one after an early spin set him back.
The Junior Productions seen Kyle Rogerson (88) make his debut in the formula in what must have been some of the worst conditions possible to make a first outing. However, the previous experience in the Micro F2s and regular practice throughout the 2019 season paid dividends as he raced to an opening race heat win.
The Classic Hot Rods are always aesthetically pleasing to watch with the retro style cars powered by modern engines. Martin Balfour (2) made his first appearance in a Classic Hot Rod, borrowing the car owned by Trevor Harris who is having a spell on the sidelines with a wrist injury. John Campbell (26) was the star of the show in the Classic Hot Rods, romping to a superb hat trick of race wins on the night and showing his dominance in the wet weather conditions.
The 2.0 Bangers were in action for the final round in the HRP series in a fight for a place in the Unlimited Banger World Final at Ipswich later in the year. As the event kicked off, it was northern driver Philip Blowers (258) that led the the points chart, with Sean McConnachie (180) and Neil Naismith (880) his closest challengers. As the green flag dropped for the first time on the night, it was clear to see that Blowers would not have an easy night of it, as a number of the âMobâ banger team set out to put an early end to his evening with Brian Youngson (226) despatching of the Blowers car hard into the wall in the opening laps, causing quite some damage. Blowers was able to rejoin however, but was then quickly caught by the oncoming Neil Naismith, who again, latched onto Blowers and took him into the wall, with Ryan Martin (3) then coming in on the Blowers car as well which seen an end to the opening race for the 258 pilot. Youngson took the race win ahead of Lee Kopacz (133) and Sean McConnachie. After the opening round of heats, it was McConnachie who had moved to the top of the points chart with Blowers dropping to 2nd and Naismith 3rd. Heat 2 seen Blowers miss out due to damage, and McConnachie fail to get off the start line as his car gave up on him. This gave Naismith the opportunity close in on the top two in the chart. David Linton (297) won the 2nd heat of the night, Kopacz 2nd and Youngson 3rd, with Naismith finishing in 4th position. The final race of the evening seen Naismith start as the leader by a few points, and with Blowers making it out on track for the final, everyone was eager to see what would happen. However, in a badly damaged car, Blowers struggled to get away and was collected by Lee Kopacz on the opening lap, which seen both cars stuck together and unable to break free, handing the points series and the place in the world final to Neil Naismith. Brian Youngson won the final race, with Linton 2nd and Ryan Martin 3rd. The Demolition derby seen Ryan Martin reign success after a couple of head on attempts with David Linton.
The 2.0 Hot Rods kicked off there 2019-20 National Points campaign at home on day that seen a couple of new drivers take to the track. Wayne Lee (99) brought his car out for the first time in practice, although ran into troubles and didnât make the eveningâs racing as a result. Scott Devine (169) returned to action for the first time in 2019. Trevor Calvin (323) started the campaign off in the best possible manner â taking his first race win in the formula.
The Superstox were in action for the final time ahead of their World Championship here at Lochgelly Raceway on the 31st August and there was still lots to play for in relation to the quest for silver in the National Points Championship. As the meeting kicked off, Bryan Forrest (309) was a few points ahead of Stuart Gilchrist (177) with both drivers looking to win the silver. It was Forrest who drew first blood though as he extended his lead at the top in the opening heat, taking victory with Gilchrist only managing a 3rd, just behind Allan Gibson (196). With the advantage extended, Gilchrist went for a hit in the opening laps of the 2nd heat to get ahead of Forrest and open up a gap to the 309 car. With Forrest chasing and looking to get as much points as possible, a mistake was made on turn 1, with Forrest spinning out, dropping him back down the order. A recovery drive seen Forrest finish in 5th place behind Gilchrist, Jack Turbitt (217), Dean Johnston (446) and Steven Ballantine (15). With Gilchrist taking victory, the gap was back down to just 4 points as the drivers started the meeting final. Gilchrist and Forrest were watching each other as the green flag came out, with neither really committing to taking the front foot. It was Forrest though, that took the lead, with Gilchrist dropping in behind. As the cars entered turn 1 and turn 3, over a space of a lap or 2, Gilchrist had stuck the Forrest car a few times. Forrest hung on, and ultimately made contact with a couple of cars in front of him which seen them spin around and Forrest go around the outside, with Gilchrist following suit. Forrest had opened up a small gap to Gilchrist though now and looked to be on his way to victory. However as he battled for the race lead, a tangle involving Forrest, Gibson and Ballantine seen Forrest spinning on the home straight, with Gilchrist narrowly avoiding it. Gilchrist got to the lead with Kenny McKenzie (453) following just behind for the majority of the race. Forrest was down in 5th and the points battle looked all but over, however, Forrest managed to get up into the podium places with a few laps to go which as things stood, would have seen the points championship tied! However, with 2 laps to go, Kenny McKenzie managed to overtake the Stuart Gilchrist car to take victory in the meeting final, with Gilchrist finishing 2nd and Forrest 3rd. The result meant that Bryan Forrest won the National Points championship by only 2 points after a year of racing!
This Friday night (16th), we are back in action with a fantastic four formula line up featuring the Ninja Karts, Ministox, 1300 Stock Cars and Stock Rods! Join us then for a 7pm start!
