Racing Resumes at Lochgelly Raceway
We are back to action at Lochgelly Raceway for the first time since mid March!

Whilst things will be slightly different to usual, we hope for an evening of good racing, from a good mix of formula. A change in government policy in regards to drive in events, enabled us to begin serious dialogue with the local council in gaining permission to re-start racing. That permission was granted on Wednesday 22nd July, and a late call was made to host a race meeting this coming Saturday.

A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes in a broad range of factors; seeking to find out if drivers were available to race, how many cars we can get into track side parking safely, understanding the restrictions put in place and the guidelines we must follow, and adding extra / new soap dispensers throughout the stadium in order to make the event as safe as possible, as well as having screening in place at the venue through our excellent medical team - Fife Medical Group. The most challenging part of what we had to overcome though, was a fair, but business practical pricing system, in order to ensure that the event could go ahead, without costing the business money, whilst balancing attendee costs. The stadium will be segregated, and those attending with race teams will be sectioned off to the A92 corner and stand in order to maintain social distancing. There will be no access to the pit area for spectators, with them requiring to stay in there vehicles apart from using facilities.

In order to work safely,
- All guests must use good hygiene measures; wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds, use the hand sanitising points throughout the venue.
- At the toilets, only one person should enter at a time, whilst any others should wait at a distance of 2m between each other
- Face coverings must be worn when exiting the car to visit any of the facilities
- Spectators should remain in there vehicles for the duration of the meeting apart from when visiting the facilities
- Race Teams, and Staff should wear face coverings throughout the evening
- 2m Social Distancing between seperate household groups (of more than 2 households) should be practiced by all throughout the evening
- The registration of the vehicle will be used to match against the information supplied to check payment. If you haven't yet uploaded your registration details, please do so in order to avoid being turned away!
- Drivers Scrutineering - Drivers should attend scrutineering with bonnets removed from the car, with the driver wearing a face covering. The driver should not exit the vehicle.

Despite the short notice to drivers, a good number of drivers have jumped into things and have spend hours in the garage since the announcement to get there cars race ready! We really appreciate the efforts!

The 1300 Stock Cars had an excellent start to the season back in March, and we hope that the formula will quickly get back to where it was back then as quickly as possible. Although a few drivers aren't available for a number of reasons, there is still a good turnout of cars. Sean Naismith will be looking to hit the ground running as he looks to secure the National Points Championship, whilst his brother Rory will be hoping to show the form that he is capable of, although, he does like to entertain as well! The Mathieson brothers are a welcome addition to the formula, and are returning with a new car at their disposal, which has been built throughout the lockdown period. They are both never shy with the bumper, and will be taking no prisoners come Saturday night!

The Stock Rods have been in good numbers through our practice sessions, and we anticipate low-mid teens in action for the resumption of the season. Siobhan Martin was declared the National Points Champion for 2019-20, and will again show off the silver roof for the coming campaign. With the points being reset, it's all to play for, and Chris Lattka, Gary Dean and Jim Pitcaithly will all be looking to score a good haul of points to get their campaigns off to the best possible start. Dean McGill and Darren McAlpine, likewise, are both more than capable of pulling off a win or two on any given evening.

The Ministox are normally always entertaining here at Lochgelly Raceway. It'll be interesting to see how the youngsters get on with a return to racing. Whilst a few of them have been at practice sessions, there are also a number of new drivers joining the grid. Rachel Kidd, Robbie Armit and Charlie Hardie are no longer the new kids on the block, with all three showing excellent pace and race craft in meetings previously. Mitchell Gold is nearing the upper age of his Ministox career, and has been one of the top performers consistently over the last couple of years. Scott Allardyce, Ryan Borthwick and Rian Mitchell will be looking to get in on the action as well!

The ProStocks looked to have a promising season on the horizon, with a good number of cars registered and in attendance in the opening weeks of the season. It will be interesting to see how the lockdown shapes the formula for the remainder of the 2020 season.

Trophy Presentations
There will be no trophy photo presentations this Saturday night, the drivers will be asked to remain in the cars, with helmets, gloves and race suits on, whilst the trophy is given to the drivers to complete the parade lap in their own cars.
