The 2023 season seen an excellent conclusion on Saturday at Lochgelly Raceway, with it being our annual charity event, alongside some fantastic racing.
The charity event seen a number of ‘novelty races’, including a ladies race for 1300 Stock Cars, a mechanics race for 1300 Stock Cars, and an adults race for ORCi Ministox. Alongside these charity races, we also had a number of drivers give up their time to participate in 2 seater experiences throughout the night. A grand sum of over £5,000 was raised, to be split between the three nominated charities – Andys Man Club, Strathcarron Hospice and Glasgow Childrens Charity Hospital. Well done to everyone that took part – and thank you for your support of these great charities.
The 1300 Stock Cars raced for their Michelle Freck Memorial event, with almost 30 cars taking part. A closed grid start for the race seen the bumpers fly in no sooner than the green flag had been dropped, and the first couple of laps of the race were absolute mayhem, with cars everywhere! As the race settled down, Cardenden’s Danny Whyte found himself leading the way, with Rosyth’s Brant West chasing him down in 2nd place. Beyond that, there was some fantastic driver, with Craig Haxton making great progress from the back of the field at an early caution, the Lochgelly driver bringing his car into the top 5. Brant West soon moved ahead of Whyte and into the lead of the race, and opening up a gap that Whyte would be unable to close once more. West capped off an excellent season with the victory in the Michelle Freck Memorial race, with Whyte finishing 2nd and Steven Gold in 3rd place. European Champion Darren Terry Brand was the first of the visiting drivers across the line, finishing in 5th place, just behind Craig Haxton. The prior two heats seen Jamie Stewart take victory in the opening race, before Danny Whyte took a win in heat 2. An end of season Dash for Cash took place, with Danny Whyte once more taking victory just ahead of Gary Nicholls.
The Ninja Karts were in fantastic numbers, as over 40 drivers descended upon Lochgelly Raceway to participate in the Scottish Masters event. The heats would be split, with the final set to be split as well, however, a number of drop outs during the meeting meant that the final was able to be run all in. Louie Hendry took a fantastic victory in heat 1, whilst Rayah Burns claimed victory in heat 2, and the only English winner of the night, Charlie Weston took victory in heat 3. The Scottish Masters race seen 36 karts take to the track, and a mid race stoppage seen the pack bunch up, with Charlie Weston at the front of the pack. Louie Hendry continued his excellent form, as he soon found himself challenging the former British Champion, before moving into the lead of the race to take the win in the inaugural Scottish Masters event. Charlie Weston finished just behind Louie in 2nd place, with Rory Wilson coming through to take 3rd place, just ahead of the outgoing National Points Champion, Stuart Shevill. Many thanks to each and every Ninja Kart team that made the visit to us at the weekend on what was a very cold night!
The ORCi Ministox raced for the HRP Ministox Disco trophy, with 2 qualifying heats taking place, to determine the grid for the meeting final. Dougie Kidd, returning to action for the first time since a big shunt at the British Championship event in October, was in excellent form, as he took race wins in both of the heats, putting him on pole position for the meeting final. Charlie Hardie started alongside the 45 car in the main race, and Hardie got the better of the starts, moving into the lead of the race and never looked back thereafter. Behind him though, there was plenty of chopping and changing of positions as the drivers battled it out for the final time in the 2023 season. Jake Wilson battled through for 2nd place, with North of Scotland based Ethan Gemmell coming through for third in what was an excellent night for the youngster.
The Micro Bangers were the final formula in action, and served up some hard hitting racing throughout the night, with a few interesting moments! Barry Jarman looked to liven things up early on, and set about after another driver, though, didn’t make any contact except with the wall! Sean McConnachie has been in great form at Lochgelly of late, and once more took another couple of victories, including the meeting final. Martin Loggie took a race win in heat 2, before Jamie Sangster took the win in the DD – and scored enough points to claim a seeded entry into the 2024 Micro Banger World Cup as a result!
That’s all from us for the 2023 season, but we’ll be back in late February for the start of 2024!!

The penultimate event of the season has now been and gone, and it was a lively event, with great racing in front of a large crowd.
Many were along to witness the Van Banger Scottish Championship event, with 11 vans participating and putting on a show throughout the night. Vans in all shapes and sizes wowed the crowd, with Paul Barron reigning successful in the Scottish Championship race – getting away well and keeping out of trouble for the duration. With the big race done for, the first heat of the night seen the drivers set about hitting as much as they can with only 4 vans completing race distance. Chris Watson only picked up his van on the Saturday morning – complete with Tax and an MOT, and took it all the way in the DD to pick up a win, shared with Darren Linton with both vans giving up after a head on between the pair!
The Junior Productions completed their season, with just under 20 cars participating. The youngsters have had an excellent season, and it all came down to the final event to determine the points winner! Dale Sutherland found himself back down to white grade, albeit, this wouldn’t last long as he went on to win both heats which found himself promoted back up to yellow! Kaitlyn Smart had her best meeting of the season, and she’ll be looking to take that confidence into 2024, as she took away a couple of 2nd place finishes for her efforts. Liam Loggie was another driver that was in good form, showing great pace throughout the evening, and was unfortunate not to take away a couple of wins for his efforts. The youngsters drove excellently throughout the night, with very little incidents, and a great showing to end the season. There would be no stopping Aiden McKinnon though, as he claimed a 1st, 2nd and 3rd on the night, that would see him move to the top of the points charts, on the final meeting of the season to become the 2023 points champion for the Junior Production class.
The Superstox started their evening off with a dash for cash, with the leader of each lap getting a prize, as well as the overall race winner. Dean Johnston set about things quickly, and within a few laps, he found himself at the front and never looked back, despite the best efforts of Ciaran Adams in the closing stages chasing him down. Johnston would go on to take race wins in the further two heats, before retiring in the final following car issues. Ciaran Adams took full advantage to claim the race win in the meeting final, to round off an excellent season for the 128 driver. Paul Mackie hasn’t had much in the way of luck throughout the year, but he took away a third place finish in the meeting final, in a race where the lower graded drivers held there own for much of the way, with Dom Currie and Connor Mason both scoring good results as well.
The National Hot Rods completed their 2023 year, with wet night of racing – Alan Kirkaldy taking victory in both heats, before Gordon Alexander took the win in the meeting final.
We are back this Saturday, with pre-meeting charity experiences getting underway from 2pm, with the main event starting at 4pm.

It was a damp night at Lochgelly on Friday, but the rain stayed off for the majority of the night. This gave the race teams a track that was greasy, but also allowed for some great racing from each of the three formula.
Over 20 1300 Stock Cars took to the track, with a number of Northern Irish based drivers joining us. Matthew Millikan faired best of the visiting drivers, as he took away a 5th place finish in the meeting final for his efforts. Jamie Stewart made his first appearance in quite some time, and was on form on the night – racing to an unstoppable hat-trick of race wins, securing the Mr Gunn shield in the process. Behind Jamie though, there were plenty of battles, with each race seeing some great bumper work and race craft throughout. Fraser Clark continued his good form, as he took away 2 more runner up spots in the heats, with Brant West also scoring well on the night. It was good to see a number of drivers make their first appearances in the formula, with Brett Dawson being one such driver. Although he struggled throughout the night, he did manage to survive a few big pushes and did well to avoid a stationary car with one of them! We would like to thank the Mr Gunn family for their support of the event, and helping to ensure that it was once more, a memorable event for drivers and spectators alike. There is one more meeting for the 1300 Stock Cars are Lochgelly, taking place on the 11th November, as the formula race for their Michelle Freck Memorial.
The ORCi Ministox have had a great season once more, and again, put on another fantastic showing. We welcomed south coast driver Lewis Middleton once more, and he managed to take away a well deserved third place finish in the opening heat – but that’s about as good as it got for him, with a 9th in the 2nd heat, and a DNF in the meeting final following a coming together with Shaun Boyle. Shaun Boyle himself, had his best meeting of the season, and one that was possibly unexpected following a bruising weekend a couple of weeks ago at the British Championship. Boyle raced to a race win in both of his heats, before a DNF ruled him out in the meeting final. Charlie Hardie showed off the British Championship roof for the first time following his success 2 weeks ago, and the car suited the black and white checker. Caitlin Mitchell raced for the first time at Lochgelly, and what a debut it was for the youngster in difficult conditions. Leading the way for spells during the meeting, Caitlin capped off her performance with a superb 3rd place finish in the meeting final, helping her achieve driver of the meeting in the process. Kevin Graham and Nicole Allardyce both had great meetings as well, with the pair racing well and taking away some well deserved points for their efforts. A roll-over for ORCi Champion, Kerr Paterson on the last lap of the final seen the race halted as a result with the leaders having completed race distance. Dean Heeps made the most of his blue grade start, as he claimed victory in the meeting final, following steady improvements throughout the event. Thanks to WMH Developments for the tyre sponorship for the meeting final.
The CC Rods completed their season, and there was plenty to race for with the points championship still to be decided. Scottish Champion, Alec Cunningham was the quickest car on track throughout the night – but was maybe a little too quick as he found himself penalized on several occasions having run into the back of a number of cars. Cunningham certainly found the ideal setup for the conditions thought, and will no doubt be making a note of them for use at future events!! Brandon Gourlay was another driver showing excellent pace, taking a heat and final double for his efforts. Brandon has shown great pace since returning to the formula, and would no doubt have been up their battling for the points had he had a full season in the class. Kevin Hutchison and Gregor Whyte both scored well on the night, with Whyte making solid progress in the formula throughout the season, which has seen him move up into 2nd place in the points championship – finishing narrowly behind Ian Christie who has secured the CC Rod points championship for 2023. We would like to thank Specialist Roofing for their sponsorship of the meeting final.
We are back in action this Saturday at Lochgelly Raceway, with a 5pm start time. The event will feature the Van Banger Scottish Championship, Superstox, Junior Productions and National Hot Rods WQR 6.

In the midst of some dire weather around the country, Saturday turned out to be unexpectedly dry and sunny for the majority of the day – but a cold track, with damp patches made driving conditions challenging for each of the formula in attendance on the night.
The Ninja Karts raced in their annual Autism Awareness event, with donation points on site, with just under £400 raised to be donated to charity. The racing started with a whites and yellows event for the youngsters in the Ninja Karts, with Bobby Whyte storming to an excellent victory. Alfie MacLeod has improved hugely throughout the season, and is now beginning to find himself racing for point scoring positions, and in the whites and yellows race, a delighted young Alfie MacLeod took 2nd place, finishing just ahead of Mathew McIntyre, with the top three all hi-fiving each other after the race! Heat 1 of the night went the way of Louie Hendry, with 2023 novices Rory Wilson and Christopher Lattka finishing in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Heat 2 would see the starting positions reversed for the start, and this time it would be Rory Wilson that came through to take victory, finishing ahead of Abigail Chalmers and Katie Lee Smart. The points from the 2 heats would see the drivers lined up in graded order, with the top point scorers at the front of each grade. From the outset, Abigail Chalmers broke clear of the blue grades and opened up a gap to those behind as she moved towards the front of the pack, and soon into the lead of the race, having closed down and overcame Louie Hendry. Rory Wilson found himself in a race, with Katie Lee Smart in close contention too. Neither though, would be able to find a way past Hendry for 2nd place, with Wilson taking 3rd ahead of Smart.
The Stock Rods seen a decent turn out of cars, with Rory Naismith and Teri Linden both making their season debuts – on the final meeting of the season, as the numbers begin to swell in the class, with excitement building for the 2024 campaign already. In the last few months, there has been just under 10 new drivers enter the formula, which has added a lot of excellent competition on track. Teri Linden was in great form as she took a win in both heats, with Robbie Armit and Lee McGill finishing 2nd and 3rd in both heats. The meeting final was an excellent race, as Robbie Armit took the lead early on and held off the pack behind until the final lap of the race. Siobhan Martin would be making a move around the outside of Armit, with Armit giving her room to race – this bunched up the drivers behind with James Robertson, Gary Dean and Teri Linden all there looking to pick up the pieces. Going into turn 1 for the final time, Armit went in a little deep, which opened up the door for Gary Dean to take full advantage, and Dean wasn’t for backing out of it with the door being left open – just. Dean put his car in the gap and moved into the lead of the race, though Armit would find himself on the outside and drop down the order on the final lap. Siobhan Martin slotted in behind Dean for 2nd, and James Robertson into 3rd, with Armit finishing in 5th despite leading for the whole race other than the final lap.
The Superstox seen an extra date added for them, with 14 cars able to make the event having had an excellent season so far. Dean Johnston was in form as he swept to a hat-trick of race victories on the night. Mark Brady would be grateful to come away without any damage, given he has had a lot of bad luck throughout the year, and rounded off the evening with a well earned 2nd place in the meeting final, finishing ahead of Kenny McKenzie and Ciaran Adams. Natalie Mason made an outing in the Connor Mason car, with Connor on the sidelines.
The National Hot Rods seen a couple of late cancellations, but did also see Alan Kirkaldy make his debut in the formula – and a winning debut it was, with the 795 pilot taking victory in the opening race – by the narrowest of margins to Gordon Alexander. Alexander would go on to take victories in the remaining races though, taking a heat and final double for his efforts. Ian Donaldson and Marc Spence both were in attendance, and the pair had some good close racing throughout the night.
The 2.0 Hot Rods welcomed Chevy Mills north of the border, with the Englishman enjoying his visit, taking away a race win and a couple of runner up spots. Kieth Brown took victory in a heat, as well as the meeting final as he wrapped up the track points championship in the process.
We are back in action this Friday, 7pm.

Wow, what a weekend of racing at Lochgelly Raceway, where almost 30 action packed races took place across the weekend.
The Scrap A Car Scotland National Micro Banger World Cup was the headline attraction, and with around 60 bangers in attendance over the two days, there was plenty of crashes, big hits and a number of rollovers! A last chance race started the race off, with what was originally scheduled to be 8 drivers, increasing to 10 joining in on the back of the World Cup race itself. Will Walmsley Jnr took the win in the last chance race in a race that seen only 12 finishers from over 30 cars. A pre-meeting grid draw would determine the grid for the World Cup race itself. A parade lap preceded the event, and with 40 cars taking to the track, the race itself was action packed! The first few laps seen a large number of cars fall crash out of contention and out of the race – The number of cars on track quickly depleted as a result, and Lee Clarke found himself leading the way in his rare Mitsuka Viewt. Clarke led the way until the closing stages, where both Sean McConnachie and Keiran Tweed overcame him. Tweed, starting from around 30th on the grid, was closing in on McConnachie in the closing laps, but didn’t quite make up enough ground to try a last bender on the 180 car of McConnachie. Scotland’s Sean McConnachie came away as the race winner, followed home by Tweed and Clarke respectively. Last chance race winner Walmsley brought his car home in an excellent 5th position. Two further allcomers races followed, with plenty of action in both – in Allcomers 1, a big impact for Craig Watson would see the race halted til the driver was seen to, with David Gurney also taking a heavy impact. In allcomers 2 Luke Tongue set about a number of drivers, with William Stawiarski taking a big impact late in the race, resulting in a race stoppage. Fraser Combe would take the win in all comers 1, with McConnachie taking victory in all comers 2. The Sunday afternoon seen the Scottish Championship contested, with an Incarace draw determining the starting positions. Around 30 cars survived for the Sunday afternoon, with the teams working overtime to try and keep the cars on track. Jack Speirs would take the victory in the Scottish race, with some big hits, and a number of head-ons late in the race. Chris Speirs would take the win in the first of two all comers races, before Glen Woodward would take victory in the second, with only 2 cars completing the distance in the end!! Woodward would take the victory in the end of weekend DD as well, sending him away with a few trophies for his efforts. Luke Tongue would be awarded the weekend entertainer award, whilst Phillip Farrell would be awarded best presented after his car was picked by a couple of fans as one that stood out with some fine air-brushing on the car.
The APEX Garden Rooms Ministox British Championship also headlined the event with 36 Ministox participating over the weekend. The Saturday would see each driver contest in 2 out of 3 heats, which would be used to form the grid for the main race on the Sunday afternoon. Rian Mitchell took the win in the opening heat, with Cody Bradford and Ethan Gemmell taking wins in the remaining heats. All three heats were action packed, with a couple of stoppages along the way. The Sunday seen the grid formed for the main race, with Cody Bradford on pole position alongside Jake Wilson. HRP Points champion, Charlie Hardie started the race as last car. As the green flags dropped, there was chaos on the opening lap, with a thumbs down resulting in a complete restart much to Rian Mitchells disappointment as he found himself in the lead on the opening corner. With less than a lap completed however, there was no order to line the cars up, and a full restart was necessary. A number of yellow flags followed as the race wore on – Bradford led the way with Rian Mitchell and Jake Wilson nearby. Bradford lost the lead to Mitchell briefly, with Jake Wilson also in contention, the front three were seperated by less than a car lenghth. Bradford soon retook the lead, with Mitchell getting caught on the outside for a period, before getting back in and into the fight. Rhys Kelly was never far away neither, with the north of Scotland based driver lurking just behind the front three for large parts of the race. Bradford controlled a number of restarts excellently, despite a train of cars on his back bumper on each occasion. With each caution, the pack closed up giving the lead cars it all to do again, whilst keeping those further back in contention. Meanwhile, Hardie was making up ground with every restart, and coming through the pack quickly with a lot of determination to succeed, and was soon in amongst the top three. With the lap boards set to come out, 7 Charlie Hardie moved into the lead of the race, overcoming the Bradford car. Wilson dropped back the order late in the race, whilst up front, Bradford stuck with Hardie, but wasn’t quite close enough to make an attempt to re-take the lead, with Hardie coming from last car on the grid, to take a remarkable victory. Bradford finished 2nd, with Middleton 3rd and Mitchell 4th. The Fife Championship took place with a reverse grid, with Hardie taking victory ahead of Mitchell and Rhys Kelly – Kelly himself had an excellent weekend of racing. ORCi Champion, Kerr Paterson would take victory in the final race of the weekend for the Ministox.
The Junior Productions seen over 30 cars compete over the weekend, with the Scottish Championship raced for on the Saturday night, and Fife Championship on the Sunday. Each Championship grid would be determined by the heat results – William Plenderleith, Abe Adams and Andrew Russell winning the heats for the Scottish Championship, but it would be Callum Doak that came out on top in the main race, with Russell and Weir completing the top 3. The Sunday would see Doak and Liam Loggie take victories in the heats, with Doak once more winning the big race. Weir and Plenderleith completed the top three in the Fife Championship.
The 1300 Stock Cars were action packed throughout the weekend with around 30 cars racing for their Lochgelly Masters, with the Masters being the final race on the Sunday afternoon, each race counted towards the make up of the grid. Dean Sievwright took the opening race win, but thereafter, it was largely the Fraser Clark show, as he took a heat and final double on the Saturday night, with a further heat and final double on the Sunday, retaining the Masters in the process. Bobby Gold took victory in the first heat on the Sunday afternoon.
