Hardie Race Promotions Press Release
Hardie Race Promotions wish to give advance notice of a number of fixture changes that we are required to make to our published fixture list.
Saturday 26th June. This event has been changed to Friday 25th June, however, Micro Bangers and the Caravans have been removed from this fixture and have been rescheduled for later in the season - read below.
Saturday 6th November - This event was originally scheduled to be the Michelle Freck Memorial event, however, due to a clashing with the 1300 Stock Car European Championship at Ipswich, this has been pushed back to Saturday 13th November. This event will also see the Micro Bangers become a team event, and the Caravan Carnage race added onto this meeting.
Saturday 13th November - This event was originally scheduled to be the Van Bangers Scottish Championship and Firework Finale. This event has been brought forward to Saturday 6th November with the original formula in place.

Note From Hoosier
We intend to attend the European Championship at Lochgelly, but as we no longer have the lorry we will only be able to bring a limited number of pre-ordered tyres for collection.
We will only have a transit van, and will not have fitting equipment on board, but understand that there may be a fitting service available from an independent garage on site, for a nominal charge.
We would ask drivers to pre-order tyres as soon as possible to enable us to plan ahead. Priority for orders will be given to National Hot Rods racing at the event, before other formulas. We will do our best to accommodate as many drivers as possible, but with the space we have available, quantities may be limited.
We anticipate arriving at the track on Friday morning, and will leave at the end of racing on Saturday. If you have tyres ordered, please ensure they are collected by then.
We want to thank you all for working with us during these unprecedented times as things slowly return to normal, and look forward to seeing you all around the raceways.
Andy & Looby
