BriSCA F2 Stock Cars
The F2 ranks were bolstered by the season debuts of British Champion 7 Gordon Moodie and 144 Lewis Willacy, while 402 Mika Millar was back on track after a few weeks absence. It looked for most of heat one as if 172 Trevor Harris would take victory but he lost out on the last bend to 391 Gregor Turner, while Moodie crossed the line in third. Harris led the majority of heat two as well but Moodie just got the better of the white grader in the closing stages, while it was 629 Euan Millar who was third on this occasion. The Final was stopped after a couple of corners after a tangle between M.Millar, Willacy and 652 Stephen Forster on the pit bend blocked most of the track – they were joined by Harris who was unable to get his car stopped in time. Moodie made the most of the depleted field to take a relatively straightforward victory, chased home by E. Millar and 3 Liam Rennie. There was a third last bend change in the Grand National, as 621 Emma Mellis was moved over by E. Millar who snuck through to victory, Mellis able to recover for second ahead of Rennie.
Saloon Stock Cars
The best field of the season of Saloon Stock Cars was shortened early on when 85 Kyle Irvine blew his engine before the green flag dropped on heat one. 546 Charlie Folan overhauled 407 Declan Honeyman in the closing stages, but Honeyman was just close enough to make contact on the last bend and just about made it to the line in first, with Folan recovering for second and 5 Tam Rutherford Jnr in third. An explosive start to heat two saw an early yellow flag when 400 Ross Forrest's wheel guard came loose and landed on the home straight. There was an equally lively restart which included Folan running Rutherford Jnr heavily round the turnstile bend. 684 Ian McLaughlin got the better of 607 Stevie Honeyman on a slippy track to win with 600 Barry Russell. Rutherford Jnr got his revenge in the Final and alongwith Russell gave Folan an uncomfortable ride around the pit bend before he came to a stop on the home straight, causing a yellow flag. D. Honeyman led the restart and led all the way until the last bend where he was pushed into the wall by Russell before spinning. Russell took the win, with S. Honeyman second and Rutherford Jnr third.
The Prostock Basics entry included a first Seat Ibiza to race in the formula, in the hands of 6 Kailum Greig, who was racing for the first time this year. 348 Liam Boyle briefly led heat one before 764 Dave Rennie took it up. The leading duo were never to be caught, and were chased home by 21 Taylor Osborne, with the star graders spending most of the race battling among themselves. There was an early stoppage at the start of heat two, when 822 Aimee Winfield spun into a marker tyre, with many of the drivers behind spinning to avoid her. Boyle led the restart away but it wasn't long before 64 Callum Rennie got into the lead, having been aided by the early yellow flag. C. Rennie went on to win ahead of Boyle and D. Rennie. The latter was an early spinner in the Final while Boyle built a gap in front. C. Rennie had reeled in the white top with the lap boards out and took the lead with three laps remaining. Boyle held off a late challenge from Points Champion 999 Nicole Russell for second.
A decent entry of 14 Prostocks included 17 Cameron Archibald and 640 Jordan Dignan as graduates from the Prostock Basics. 122 John Jackson tangled with Archibald at the start to the opening heat and proceeded to roll spectacularly down the back straight and onto the pit bend, bringing out the yellow flags. British Champion 638 Darren Rae capitalised on the stoppage and was into the lead shortly after the restart. He went on to win ahead of 304 Robert Conway and 170 Ian Christie. Archibald found himself stranded across the track at the start of heat two and the race was suspended. A messy restart saw another few cars eliminated, including 127 Mark Boyle, with just five cars able to take part in the second restart. Rae recorded another victory, while 231 Grant Barker held off Dignan for second place. The Final was suspended when Dignan took a heavy trip to the wall after a tangle with Christie. On the restart Rae completed his hat-trick, with Barker and Christie completing the top three.
