Saturday 2017

It turned out to be rather a wet stock car meeting at the Cowdenbeath Racewall on Saturday night but that didn’t detract too much from the on track action.

There was a minutes silence prior to the start of the meeting allowing the fans, drivers and officials to pay their respects to Sandy Strath who sadly passed away after becoming ill in the pits last week. Sandy, who was been a Scottish Banger Champion, and father of saloon driver James.

Ministox driver Michael Mitchell escaped unhurt after he rolled his car during the opening heat when he got tangled with other cars and resulted in Taylor Borthwick crashing into the Armco. In the formula IIs there was a six car pile up which blocked the track and suspended the race at the start to the second heat.

In the saloons Barry Glen was eased into the turnstile bend wall and managed to get two wheels off the ground as a result and managed to drive the car down the straight before coming to a sudden stop.

There was another good turn out of formula IIs which included newcomer Alex Gault making his debut whilst Willie Lindsay returned after a few seasons away. Chris Chance and John Broatch were back up from the north of England. Local drivers in action were

The first heat saw Craig Reid lead for sometime but lost out to Chris Burgoyne. However when Robbie Dawson was shunted into the wall the race was suspended. On the restart Burgoyne eased away before going on to win from Dennis Middler and John Hogg. In heat two there was a pile up on the back straight which put paid to quite a few cars. Gault led the field away and did so until almost half distance when he lost out to Dennis Middler who won by a considerable margin from Burgoyne and Paul Reid.

Gault led the cars away when the final started but when he was caught by Euan Millar the cars tangled and spun. This handed the lead to Hogg who eased away from the pack before going on to win from Middler and Stevie Forster.
Craig Wallace won the Grand National from Middler and Millar with Hogg finishing in fifth place.

The 2 litre National saloons welcomed back Paul Honeyman to their ranks whilst Derek Marshall made his debut. Local drivers The opening heat was a cracking race and after the stoppage to allow Glen out of his car Ian McLaughlin, Graeme Shevill and Ross Watters scrapped over the lead. The lead changed hands two or three times before McLaughlin won from Shevill and Watters. Heat two saw Marc Honeyman go through to win from Derek Duff and Greg Honeyman. There was some early action at the start to the final which delayed Kyle Irvine but on the back straight Shevill, waters and Derek Duff all ended up in a heap and out of the race. M. Honeyman went on to pick up his second win of the night and he led home McLaughlin and P. Honeyman.

The hot rods were contesting another of their World Championship qualifying heats, sponsored by Dechmont Forklift Trucks. Craig McLaren returned to the hot rod scene after being away for a spell whilst Robert McDonald was the visiting driver. Local drivers

McDonald won the opening heat from Graeme Callender and Ian Donaldson. McDonald again came out on top in heat two just pipping Callender on the last lap whilst Donaldson was again in third. During the final the cars bunched on the main straight with McDonald and Donaldson touching with the former spinning out the following lap. In the end Callender picked up his first win of the night leading home Donaldson and Steven Armit.
There was a good turn out of minis for the “Let the Sparks Fly” trophy including the track points champion Steven Burgoyne. Local drivers

After Mitchell had rolled his car Burgoyne just got the better of Sean Naismith on the run up to the finish line with Mitch Gold in third spot. Burgoyne had an easier run in heat two where he picked up his second win of the night when he led home Mitch Gold and Taylor Borthwick.
When the final started Lauren Ford was the initial leader but was soon caught by Danny Whyte and Mika Millar. However Burgoyne was on a charge and he worked his way through the field before going on to win from Whyte and Teri Linden.

There were 17 microf2s at the track including four newcomers and there was some close and fast racing.
Lewis Clark Burgoyne won the opening heat from Callan Walker and Lewis Walker. Heat two saw C. Walker win from Jamie Dawson and Joelan Maynard. Heat three ended with Dawson winning from Maynard and Clark Burgoyne.
