BriSCA F2 Stock Cars
A couple of late additions saw 13 BriSCA F2s take to the track for their third meeting of the year. 172 Trevor Harris was quickly overhauled by 391 Gregor Turner at the start of heat one and the pair were never to be caught by the chasing pack, with returning World Champion 647 Chris Burgoyne in third. Heat two was a similar story, although C. Burgoyne was able to catch and overtake Harris in the closing stages while Turner took his second win of the evening. Track conditions proved very difficult in the Final, and although 217 Craig Reid and 17 Paul Reid both had spells out front, C. Burgoyne had made it to the front just after half distance. The World Champion went on to record what was a relatively straightforward victory, with 3 Liam Rennie and 674 Steven Burgoyne completing the top three. Rennie, who had won a race at both previous meetings in 2021, went on to continue that run with victory in the Grand National, having chased down Harris who had led early on from the front. S. Burgoyne and 16 Craig Wallace completed ther top three, while C. Burgoyne managed to get up to seventh place from the lap handicap.
Saloon Stock Cars
There were 15 Saloon Stock Cars present for the second week running, including season debuts for 501 Ally Strachan and 607 Stevie Honeyman. 407 Declan Honeyman and 546 Charlie Folan jostled for the lead throughout heat one, with D. Honeyman eventually prevailing after spinning Folan around on the last bend. S. Honeyman and 5 Tam Rutherford Jnr completed the top three. D. Honeyman crossed the line first in heat two but was penalised for an alleged jump start by the Steward of the meeting, promoting S. Honeyman into first with 38 Barry Glen moving up to second. Folan and D. Honeyman were the early pacesetters in the Final with S. Honeyman joining them a few laps in to the race. Folan was spun out of the lead on the entry to the back straight by D. Honeyman and was thankfully avoided by the chasing pack – although they were delayed extending both Honeymans lead at the front. Stevie eventually got ahead of Declan towards the end of the race, while another frantic last bend saw 122 Zak Gilmour claim third.
ORCi Stock Rods
There was another good turn out of 21 ORCi Stock Rods, including the debut of 79 Sean Devine. 123 Craig Tosh caught and passed flying white grader 257 Paul Prentice in the closing stages to take heat one, with 172 Derek Conner third. Heat two saw a suspension at around half distance following a tangle between 83 Michael Bethune and 216 Cameron Doak. 17 Dylan Smart led the field away but was soon overhauled by Conner. Conner withstood pressure from World Champion 29 David Philp Jnr to take the win with 644 Martin Rankine third. Smart and Prentice were involved in a tangle at the start of the Final in an incident that also claimed 686 Euan Robertson. A complete re-run was called, and it was 100 Cameron McDonald who led the field away. There was another stoppage with only a couple more laps gone with Devine and 351 Stuart Wedderburn stranded across the back straight. McDonald led the restart but the chasing pack, led by Conner and Rankine, quickly made their way past. Philp Jnr joined the leading duo and was able to move past Conner with a couple of laps to go. Rankine fell down the order towards the closing stages leaving British Champion 272 John McAllister to take third.
A decent field of 12 2L Bangers made it on track for their first race, including a strong showing from Team Joker. 3 Ryan Martin took heat one, with 999 Dayle Linton and 258 Philip Blowers the placemen – in a race that saw 147 Alex Nelson wrecked after a heavy hit from 180 Sean McConnachie. 159 Callum Campbell survived an eleventh hour attack from Martin to win heat two, while 397 Darren Linton and Dayle Linton were second and third – Martin just failing to cross the line after clobbering a marker tyre on the run up to the flag. 269 Sean Bonnar won the Final ahead of 74 Jamie Sangster and Darren Linton, in a race that included another couple of heavy knocks for 215 Douglas Linton, courtesy of Campbell. Darren Linton outlasted team-mates Dayle Linton and
Bonnar to take the DD.
