The second stock car meeting gets underway this Wednesday evening and hopefully it will be another exciting affair with the drivers relishing the wide open spaces. After the exertions of the drivers over the weekend we might get a chance to see the new British Champion Alan Kirkaldy (795) have his first outing with the black and white chequered roof.
Amongst the drivers booked in are Colin Gregg (305) and Mark Dews (178) from south of the border whilst Derek Ashcroft (670) should be back from his weekend break at the Grand Prix at Monaco! It would have been warmer at the Racewall! The National Points leader Gordon Moodie (7) will be hoping to chalk up a couple of wins having had to take a back seat to Chris Burgoyne (647) during the last and very wet Knockhill meeting. In form yellow grader Craig Wallace (163) will be hoping to get back to his winning ways whilst Robbie Dawson (854) will be keen to chalk up some good results.
The new National Champion Gordon Alexander (71) will be in action and hoping to get a win or two whilst the National Points champion Stuart Shevill Jnr (618) will be keen to get back to his winning ways after having had a disastrous weekend’s racing where he was plagued with all sorts of problems. Aaryn Triggs (620) picked up his first win on Sunday and will be trying hard to get his first Knockhill win under his bonnet.
The National hot rod drivers will be contesting another of their World Championship qualifying rounds where the top two Billy Bonnar (844) and Graeme Callender (871) have all but sealed their places for the World Final down at Ipswich. However there are another two places up for grabs and it could be quite a fight between Ronnie McKenzie (187), Ian Donaldson (700) and Wayne Lee (99) providing he has managed to get his car sorted.
Chris Lattka (658) dominated the stock rod racing last time out although brother Jonathan (647) will not be sitting back and letting him have an easy time. Siobhan Martin (25) struggled in the wet last time out but has since moved to superstar and she will be hoping for a good series of results. Look for track points champion Lindsay Wilson (846) being the driver to beat in the Lightning Rods but he will have to be at his best to keep the likes of John Sibbald (629) and David Glencross (81) at bay.
Action starts at 6pm with adult admission £10 with discounted tickets still available in advance.
