Saloon Stock Cars
European Championship sponsored by Gilmore Engineering
Raymond Gunn Tribute
The Saloon Stock Cars will compete for their European Championship at the Racewall for the first time since 2015. The event has not been a particularly happy hunting ground for the home drivers, with the last Scottish win 16 years ago with Kenny Purdie taking the red and yellow chequered roof. The last winner of the title at Cowdenbeath was Eddie Darby, who is no longer an active driver, while the defending champion Daniel Parker hasn't raced so far this season so is unlikely to be able to defend his title. 2017 winner Deane Mayes, who is the current holder of the silver roof, is also unlikely to race so it looks that there will be a new name on the roll of honour on Sunday afternoon.

The Scottish challenge is set to be extremely strong with the winners of the last two major championships in the Saloon Stock Cars both from Scotland - Scottish Champion 85 Kyle Irvine and UK Champion 618 Stuart Shevill Jnr. Irvine endured what was probably his most roughest meeting at the Racewall since the opening meeting of the season but fought back to points finishes each time while Shevill Jnr took two race wins. 661 Graeme Shevill debuted a new car last Saturday but looked close to the pace while there were good results from 38 Barry Glen who won the Final as well as 122 Zak Gilmour and 670 Ross Watters. 684 Ian McLaughlin had a meeting to forget but shouldn't be discounted from taking the title, while 73 James Letford, 229 Graeme Anderson and 600 Barry Russell will also be threats.

The visiting charge is likely to be led not just by 2021 championship winners 349 Michael Allard (British), 428 Lee Sampson (English) and 902 Bradley Compton-Sage (National). Allard has been known to finish in the runners-up spot in championships, not least a previous World Championship held at the Racewall, while Sampson was the winner of a spectacular Raymond Gunn Tribute race a few years ago. 2019's winner of the Gordon Barclay Memorial race 747 Matty Stirling is likely to be the best hope for Northern Ireland but the likes of 153 Ryan Wright  should not be discounted, both having come close to major honours in the past. 719 Dylan Booth and 941 Adam White are set to make their Racewall Saloon Stock Car debuts, both having raced Prostocks at the past - White won the British Championship for the formula here back in 2017.

The Saturday evening racing will feature a series of qualifying heats for the European Championship, with Sunday afternoon likely to feature a Last Chance event before the main event – the Raymond Gunn Tribute race will be one of the subsequent races after the European Championship in memory of a driver who is fondly missed around the raceways and is always a race to remember. The booking list can be found online here.

British Championship
Keir Millar Memorial
The Ministox will compete for their British Championship for the second time since its reintroduction. The race is yet to have a Scottish winner since it was reintroduced, and all previous winners have reached retirement age so there will definitely be a new name on the trophy this weekend.

Favourites for the race are likely to centre around 7 Charlie Hardie, 178 Scott Allardyce and 612 Jay Paterson. Hardie has been the driver to beat in Scotland all season, picking up race wins and podiums at more or less every meeting he contests. Allardyce picked up the Scottish Championship last weekend and will be sporting the St Andrew's Cross at the Racewall for the first time this weekend – can he add the Black and White checks to his roof by the end of the weekend? 612 Jay Paterson is set to wear the silver stripe for the first time in his career from next Monday and has spent this season making his way through from the back of the pack quietly, picking up points and podium finishes.

88 Kyle Rogerson, 142 Jake Wilson and 627 Andrew Scott are all in the midst of their best seasons to date and are all capable of taking the win here, as is the likes of Crimond silver roof 165 Jamie Dawson, 050 Ethan Jack Gemmell and 167 Sam Cavanagh. 628 Ross McLaughlin, 675 Charlie Faichney and 680 Bobby Brandon have all taken their first race wins this season and could be there to pick up the pieces in the main race should it go pear-shaped for the main protagonists.

Similar to the Saloon Stock Cars, the Ministox will partake in a series of qualifying heats on Saturday evening to determine the grid for Sunday's British Championship. The main event is likely to be the first of the meeting for the Ministox on Sunday afternoon with one of the subsequent races being the prestigious Keir Millar Memorial Trophy – a race that means a lot to the Ministox community and a race that is always very keenly contested.

BriSCA F2 Stock Cars (Saturday only)
Allan Cuthill Memorial Trophy
The BriSCA F2 Stock Cars will race on Saturday night for the Allan Cuthill Memorial Trophy for the first time. 3 Liam Rennie, who is the current track championship leader, will lead the entry. Rennie will be racing from the red grade as a result of his Final win at the Racewall last Saturday night. 236 Daniel Scrimgeour took his first race victory of the season in an enthralling second heat last Saturday evening and will be aiming to take his first Final victory this week while 621 Emma Mellis and 652 Stephen Forster will have their eyes set on a second podium position in succession in this week's Final. 16 Craig Wallace, 629 Euan Millar and 647 Chris Burgoyne will be amongst the drivers returning to the Racewall following a week's absence.

Stock Rods (Sunday only)
Turner Trophy
The Stock Rods will be in action on Sunday afternoon with their annual Turner Trophy up for grabs, won in 2019 by Leon Stewart. British Champion 272 John McAllister added the Gordon Ross Memorial Shield to his CV last Saturday evening with 216 Cameron Doak and 83 Michael Bethune completing the podium – will it be the same top three this week? Along with Bethune and Stewart, the only other previous winner of the trophy set to race is 29 David Philp Jnr who won the trophy some 20 years ago in 2001. 41 Stuart McKinnon and 197 James Gray will be among the drivers looking to change their fortunes in the 2021 season, while 240 David Dignan and 285 Peter Henderson will be hoping they don't have a repeat of the heavy damage they sustained last weekend. Other drivers to look out for include last week's second heat winner 26 Lee Burden, 351 Stuart Wedderburn and early-season pacesetters 491 Sandy Galbraith and 629 Taylor Borthwick.
