This weekend (Sunday 24th April), we kickstart our 2022 season for the Super Lap Scotland, Mod Sports and Legends racers. This half day format (starting at 12:30pm) will be jam-packed with action from the three-competing series.
The day’s action will commence with a number of practice/familiarisation sessions for all competitors before we head into the competitive action on track with qualifying and the finals/races.
A slightly reduced SLS field will get underway for the opening round with several of the big hitters in each class unable to attend this event. However, that bodes well for the remaining competitors to steal a march on their rivals in terms of championship points.
Former King of the Hill winner, Paul Rankin will lead the assault in the Pro class behind the wheel of his Westfield Kit Car. Nev Wood, who secured his maiden Pro category win last year will be looking to challenge behind the wheel of his powerful Ariel Atom.
Craig Nicol returns for 2022 looking to secure another Class A title win. He’ll be hoping to see off fellow Class A driver Andy Clotworthy in his Subaru Impreza this weekend. Both Michael Osborne Junior and Senior will again battle it out on track for the honours in Class C. The duo fought tooth-and-nail last year with Junior eventually pipping Dad to the 2021 title. It will be interesting to see if Senior can go one better in 2022.
Class E – one of the most popular classes and as cut-throat as it gets in Super Lap Scotland, returns in 2022 with a gaggle of drivers looking to make their mark. Defending class and King of the Hill Champion Martin Brown misses out for round one and that should give those entered this weekend an opportunity to hit the ground running and stamp their own mark on Class E this weekend.
In Class F, we’ll see a four-way battle this weekend between Tom Lockhart, Andrew Fahey, Simon McWilliam and David Capstick; these drivers will be close on the times so it will be interesting to see who pulls together the perfect lap come Sunday evening.
SLS finals action from 2021
