Saloon Stock Cars
The season concludes in style at the Racewall with the all action Saloon Stock Cars competing for UK SuperBowl XXVII on the Saturday evening and the 20th running of the Gordon Barclay Memorial on the Sunday afternoon. Saturdays racing has extra significance as the SuperBowl is a World Ranking event which means positions and points scored will influence who makes it onto the 2016 World Final grid at Skegness next September. The defending Champion is 618 Stuart Shevill Jnr though whether he makes it onto track will depend both on the fitness (and willingness) of both driver and machine after his massive impact against the wall back at the Scottish Championship meeting. Brother Graeme Shevill will be out to uphold the family honour however and he has proven to be no slouch since his return to racing a couple of weeks back. Apart from Stuart and the suspended 219 Luke Grief, there are no other current Scottish drivers who are holders of a World Ranking title so tonight may be the chance for the likes of 670 Ross Watters, 85 Kyle Irvine or 507 Paul Honeyman to take their first major title. There are plenty of other home drivers in with a shout should the race and bumper work go their way. 684 Ian McLaughlin shows plenty of aggression behind the wheel though this sometimes means he is involved in the action when it all kicks off, whilst 715 Kyle Hegg proved he could time the hits to perfection in the White and Yellows Series Final last weekend though he was in the wars during the remainder of the meeting. With graded starts in the qualifying heats it would not take much for one of the lower graders such as 70 Scott Mitchell, 50 Keith Mitchell or 229 Graeme Anderson to make a break for it at the start. Add in the likes of 620 Aaryn Triggs, 45 Eck Cunningham, 107 Marc Honeyman and vetran 777 Alan Ainslie and their will be plenty of competition to keep the title on home soil.
The visiting entry will be strong as ever and will be led by 6 Simon Welton who will make his first Racewall appearance with the Gold Roof since claiming his World Final title at Mildenhall back in August. 349 Michael Allard and 641 Willie Skoyles Jnr will be hoping to claim their first major title. And both have good form round the big Cowdenbeath oval. The same goes for 158 Shane Davies, the former Banger driver knowing how to both use the front bumper to go effect and to win races. Two of the strongest English hopes will be 730 Deane Mayes and 698 Danny Colliver. Both have been at the Racewall several times before this season, indeed Colliver is a regular and tops the Track Championship going into the final weekend of the season. There are a host of young drivers from strong racing pedigrees on the tracks down south and the likes of 220 Casey Englestone, 306 Daniel Parker and 389 Ryan Santry could all be in the mix come chequered flag time. There is no discounting the Northern Irisih entry either though it has been some time since they last threatened a major title win at the Racewall however 711 Anthony and 811 Keiran McIvor are both quick and could cause an upset.
After the fireworks have gone off (on and off the track) the warriiors will resume battle on Sunday with a few old scores to settle no doubt as they gather for the Gordon Barclay Memorial, a race presented each year in memory of one of the all time greats in Stock Car racing who tragically lost his life with friend Neil McAndrew on their way home from the Skegness Speedweekend back in 1995. The race tends to bring out the best in the Saloon Stock Car drivers who whilst having necer raced with Gordon know exactly what he gave to the Stock Car world and how he loved the battles with the Auld Enemy on the track and a few drinks with them off the track – just as it should be. The weekend will be rounded out by a big money Dash for Cash finale.
Our thanks to Gilmore Engineering for their generous sponsorship of the weekends racing.
BriSCA F2 (Saturday only)
The F2 Stock Cars round out an excellent season for the open wheeled formula that has cemented their position as THE top open wheeled Stock Car formula in the country. The evenings racing will commence with the Champion of Champions trophy open to any driver who has won a race here at the Racewall this season (see list here). The trophy is defended by 7 Gordon Moodie who will race for the last time in front of his home fans (for the time being) as the National Points Champion, a title he has held since 2010. The Chase for the Silver roof has been a major feature of the end of season meetings here at the Racewall as 100 George Macmillan Jnr and 647 Chris Burgoyne have battled it out. George is planning on racing at Kings Lynn this evening but Chris is likely to be on hand and will hope to further cut into George’s lead with just a few weeks left of the season. The meeting Final will be for the annual James Cochrane Memorial Trophy and our thanks once again to the family and friends of James for presenting the trophy. The event is sure to be hotly contested with the likes of 3 Liam Rennie, 480 Garry Sime, 854 Robbie Dawson and 16 Craig Wallace all capable of winning. The lower graders will fancy a last chance of glory with 192 Brian Hogg, 726 Colin Thomson, 321 Holly Glenn, 391 Gregor Turner and 17 Paul Reid all having won races this season. 909 Willie Murray and 47 Sean McFerran will add to the visiting interest as they head across the Irish Sea to race with us whilst 199 Jak Marshall will be on track having journeyed from Skegness. The F2s do still have one more meeting of 2015 here at the Racewall as they make a long awaited return to the Festive fixture on the 27th December. Our thanks to T & B Motors for their Sponsorship of the Champion of Champions event.
Ministox (Saturday only)
The youngsters aged 10-16 have their final outing of the main season (again they are back with us on the 27th December) with 629 Euan Millar looking to round out the season in style having sealed the Track Championship last weekend. There is plenty still to race for however as the meeting features the Disco Series Finale, a Dash for the Tyre event and the Scrutineers Trophy. 674 Steven Burgoyne and 628 Taylor Borthwick were Millars nearest pursuers last weekend though there were some good battles between 600 Bryan Lindsay, 623 Terri Linden and 602 Jamie Connacher also.
The Micro F2s have their biggest weekend of racing so far as the drivers aged 7-11 contest their Scottish Cup sponsored by Mcrh Printing and Embroidery and Hillend Motors. The meeting has attracted a large number of bookings from South of the Border and Northern Ireland which may see car numbers above the 20 mark when combined with the ever growing band of home drivers. Amongst the visiting drivers are 293 Elexie Bartram and 538 Kady Mills who have raced here on the a few previous occasions and have gone well. There will be a strong entry from Northern Ireland with entries from 212 Tyler Mcclurkin, 909 Joshua Murray and 909 Rhianna Murray (Sunday), whilst 92 Olliver McFerran and 928 Cathal McFerran will also be taking turns out over the weekend whilst 932 Ava Mcreight and 924 JackMorrow will also be on track to join the local stars of 641 Hannah Borthwick, 165 Jamie Dawson, 69 Jimmy Cartmell, 17 Rebecca Reid, 647 Lewis Clark-Burgoyne, and 5 Leon Muir. Ryder Irvine will also be out in one of the hire cars.
1300 Stock Cars (Sunday Only)
The 1300 Stock Cars return for their final outing of 2015 and whilst car numbers havnt reached the numbers expected though there remains good interest for 2016, the racing has been watchable with some good battles between the drivers. 73 Aaron Hastie was on good form last time out fending off 467 Pete Honeyman whilst 76 Graham Swan and 211 Grant McGowan has some enjoyable battles for the minor placings. Expect 68 Brian Allan to be on the base once again whilst 246 Lee Wilson will be looking to end the year on a high note and hopefully not literally!
Stock Rods (Sunday Only)
The ORCi Stock Rods have had a fine season with some very competitive racing and with further new registrations for 2016 the future looks very bright indeed. 83 Michael Bethune has been the man to beat of late although 240 David Dignan also claimed a welcome win for the lower grader last time out. 91 Jim Pitcaithly will be looking to end the year on a high as will 323 Trevor Calvin who will be hoping to put his engine troubles to rest. 24 James Matson and 197 James Gray are as competitive as ever and 41 Stuart MacKinnon and 612 Leon Stewart have veen exceptionally quick at times throughout the season. A welcome visit from 315 Trevor Ashworth from Ringwood raceway is planned and he has been very quick on his previous visits and will hope to make the long journey North worth his while.
Prostocks (Sunday only)
The limited budget Prostocks will be on track on Sunday for their Track Championship decider. 55 Tam Melrose is in pole position however 43 Ally McDonald could still overcome the deficit depending on results. 760 John Mason has had one of his best seasons for a while whilst 146 Ricky White and 73 James Letford have both been consistent when they have raced. 145 Dougie Kidd will be looking to avoid other peoples accidents to make it to the finish line whilst it is hoped the rare Sunday afternoon fixture will tempt a few other drivers to venture to the Racewall for the final time this season.
