Over the years, there have been countless tracks hosting Stock Car meetings in Britain with the first ‘organised’ event taking place at New Cross in 1954. From here, the sport was officially born.

Cowdenbeath opened its doors to stock car racing in August 1965. Scotland was a hive of racing activity, with tracks springing up across the country in Coatbridge, carntyne, Stepps, Motherwell and Edinburgh.

The 1960s, 70s and early 80s were packed full of racing gold, with crowds flocking to Cowdenbeath to see each exciting meet week after week. Unfortunately, by 1986 the buzz started to fade and Cowdenbeath was forced to close its doors at the end of the season.

Gordon McDougall Promotions (GMP) stepped in to resurrect the glory of Racewall in 1989 .  Having lost the Newtongrange Star football ground in 1986 when the football club sold the ground they turned their attention to Cowdenbeath.

The then defunct Cowdenbeath was reopened and ‘’infamous’ Racewall came into being. GMP again branched out, taking on Formula 2  stock car meetings at Warton, Barrow and Crimond until it gained admission to BriSCA in 1993 and at Knockhill Racing Circuit just north of Dunfermline.

Racewall is still going strong after over 40 years and is still one of the most exciting oval circuits in the UK. The famous ‘Racewall Roar’ is truly a sound to behold.

In 2024 it will stage both the Saloon Stock Car and ORCi Stock Rod World Championship Finals along with the BBA Unlimited Banger World Cup plus a host of other championship events.
