Saturday 18th May
Welcome back to Lochgelly Raceway for another night of entertaining stock car racing!

The 1300 Stock Cars are the formula on the incline at the moment with numbers seemingly increasing meeting on meeting, and this weekend looks no different with 20 cars currently booked into race, its set to be the highest turnout of the season to date for home based drivers. Andrew Mathieson returns to action after missing a number of meetings due to clashing schedules and will be looking to get his car on the pace ahead of the speed weekend in a couple of weeks time (8/9 June). Craig Haxton and Zak Gilmour have been in good form this season, both showing good speed and neither are afraid to use the bumper. Eddie Corr has suffered a dip in form of late, but will be hoping to get things dialled up again this weekend given that it is the last meeting at home before the European Championship. Rory Naismith made his debut last weekend and secured a meeting final win in the process – Certainly one to watch out for. Likewise his brother Sean who has been in good form this year, already up to a blue grade and able to hold his own. Danny Whyte is no stranger to action and is one of the drivers who loves to be involved in the action and will make a lunge for the lower places in the grid – certainly a good driver to watch!! Stewart Aitken and Patrick Calderwood have scored a good haul of points this year, with Stewart being in great form from blue grade but has suffered some reliability issues that has prevented him from being upgraded to red grade!

The CC Rods started off 2019 slowly car numbers wise, but have picked up over the last few meetings and with just under 20 cars booked into race this weekend, its another great turnout for the non-contact brigade. Lee Wotherspoon has been in good form so far, picking up a number of race wins. Lee will be hoping to continue that form this weekend, but like previous meetings, will have a fight on his hands. Ian Donaldson appears to be back to his best and looks to have his car going well again. Ian is no stranger to victory lane and knows his way around Lochgelly Raceway. Paul Muir is another driver who is always there or thereabouts, and will be looking to score a good haul of points this Saturday night. Brandon Gourlay had a nightmare start to the 2019 season but looks to have turned things around in the last couple of meetings, scoring good places and really good pace – A race win looks just around the corner for Brandon! Dale Burt and James McIntyre look set to join us for their first outings of the season.

The 2.0 Hot Rods are racing for the final time ahead of the ATP / JP Fabrications European Championship here at Lochgelly Raceway on the 8th and 9th of June. 15 cars are booked into race including visitor Martin Heath who is looking to find a decent setup of the car before the June Speedweekend. Jim Pitcaithly has been the driver to beat so far in 2019 at Lochgelly Raceway, however, Kevin Stewart and Gerry Hendry have always been around the top 3 places as well. Brian Wilson has found his feet like a duck to water in the formula since starting out in March. Brian has scooped a number of race wins this season already and won from the blue grade last time out, he’ll be hoping to continue that as he vies for a place in the European Championship. Gary Black and Ryan Adamson have both came on well this year and have secured a number of good results between them, with Ryan taking a heat win in a recent meeting. Chas Bain is no stranger to oval racing and has shown great speed from the back of the grid in his meetings so far this season – Once he gets to start from his graded position, he’ll be up there battling for race wins. The 2.0 Hot Rods have been arguably the best formula of the season to date with every meeting providing nail biting racing as the drivers race in large groups as the battle for positions.

Junior Production Stock Cars are in action as the youngsters take to the track again. Koddi Wright was in dominant form last time out, whilst Lennon Grant scored consistently well as he finds his feet in the new car that he is using for 2019. Jensen Bell will be looking to continue his good progress in the formula and will be hoping for an uneventful night after some technical issues last time out!! Jamie Stewart makes his first outing in the formula, and will likely me straight on the pace with his Ministox experience.

The Superstox are the final formula in action and its good to see numbers finally going in the right direction with the open wheel class as well. Stuart Gilchrist was in good form last time out and had some great battles as he raced his way through the pack. Dean Johnston has started the 2019 season in good form too, finding consistency in both wet and dry conditions. Kenny McKenzie has been at his best in the wet this season, but has also shown good speed in the dry conditions. Adam Low looks to have got his zetec powered car going as he likes his, already scooping a couple of race wins this season and a handful of top 3 finishes in the process. Adam is an unpredictable driver and loves a battle and is certainly no stranger to on track action! Bryan Forrest made the trip over the Irish Sea last weekend and came away with a 2nd place in the Tullyroan Cup. David Frame and Jack Turbitt look to join us on the grid this weekend for the first time this season.

There is no racing here at Lochgelly Raceway next weekend due to a major event with our neighbours at Driftland. We are back in action on Friday 31st May as with the Ministox, Superstox, Stock Rods and ProStocks all in action in the final domestic meeting ahead of our 2nd speed weekend of the season!!

Lochgelly 11th May 2019
7th of May 2019

The time is now, this week we see a SPECIAL EVENT take place at Lochgelly Raceway, the 2019 staging of the Keir Millar Memorial Finale, and what a night it looks set to be. This is a meeting that is so close to so many peoples hearts, none moreso than the family of Keir Millar who will be with us this weekend. To start the day off with smiles, laughter and memories that will be cherished forever, we have for the first time in Scotland the staging of a PUSH CAR RACE! Yes, a PUSH car race where the adults / older children get to push there smaller brothers, sisters, cousins, friends around the track in a 1 lap race around the quarter mile raceway. Due to the HUGE popularity of the event, we have had to split them into 2 races with almost 70 teams entering the event!! The grand parade for the push car race will take place between 1530 and 1555 with the first of the 2 shootout races taking place at 1600!! We are also pleased to announce a guest starter for these races is that of Sharon Fisher, Keirs mum, it is an honour for us to allow Sharon to take part in this event. Ensure you are here sharp to witness this fun filled event!!

Following on from that, the serious racing will commence at 1700 as the Ministox race for the final of the Keir Millar Memorial Event with the winner being presented with the prestigious trophy that they all want to win. We have over 30 cars booked in for the Ministox so its going to be a lively event as it is the title that every driver will want to win. Scott Allardyce, Jamie Stewart, Ciaran Adams, Taylor Borthwick and Aaron Richards will likely start off as pre race favourites given the form that they have all started 2019 in, however, given the event and high stake emotions, anything can happen. Robbie Armit and Rian Mitchell have both started 2019 off in fine form however both are now starting a bit further back the grades so it will be interested to see how the final grid shapes up. Northern based driver Ross Lawrence will be hoping for some good fortune having struggled in the early part of the season for consistency, but will be hoping it all comes good for him this weekend. Following on from the Keir Millar race we will have a couple of heats and a final for the Ministox to round up there night. The Keir Millar Memorial Race will act as the meeting final for the meeting, with a 2/3 format being run for the remaining 3 races.

Along side the Ministox, we have the Ninja Karts, a formula that seen Keir crowned the first ever Scottish World Champion in the formula before he moved onto Ministox. We have over 30 Ninja Karts booked in as well with a couple of visitors from England. Bailey Millar will be wanting to win a few races given the occasion in remembering his cousin Keir. Bailey has already won the National and European Championship this season in what is turning out to be an excellent year for the youngster. Rachel Kidd has been ever consistent in the Ninja Karts and is a now established front runner across the UK and Ireland. This was backed up by scoring 3 out of 3 podium finishes last Saturday night here at Lochgelly Raceway whilst also scoring a 3rd place in the European Championship on Sunday at Aldershot. Charlie Hardie will be back out on track and looking to get a few more wins under his belt as he nears retirement age for the formula. Jack Baird was the superstar of last week, scooping a hat trick of race wins on the night – he’ll be hoping for more of the same results this weekend in front of a good crowd. Kaitlyn Smart has been in good form of late as well and will be looking to get a win under her belt soon. A slightly different format will be run for the Ninja Karts this weekend with a 3/4 race format to be used which will mean that there won’t be a whites and yellows race on the night.

The Bangers were always one of Keir’s favourite formula and it’s therefore one of the formula that we always have on at this weekend in the shape of the National Micro Bangers. There are currently 33 bangers booked in and ready to cause havoc around the raceway. A large number of drivers are making the trip from England to be with us this weekend and will be hoping go home afterwards having had a great meeting and a good few crashes!

The 1300 Stock Cars are in action and the likes of Patrick Calderwood and Stewart Aitken will be looking to continue there good vein of form. Sean Naismith will be back out in action in his car and will be looking to build on his progress in the formula so far! Zak Gilmour and Corey Robertson were in action at Ipswich last weekend for the British Championship meeting and both expect to be with us this weekend as they look to put on a show. Regan Watson has been out a few times this year now and has got quicker with each passing meeting. As well as becoming quicker he has also acquired a liking to using the front bumper!!

The final formula in action are the Junior Bangers – Many thanks to those making the trip to join us in what is a rare meeting for the formula here at Lochgelly Raceway.

Ensure you join us on Saturday 11th May to mark the occasion – It looks set to be one of the best meetings of the season so far!!

Saturday 4th May Preview
3rd of May 2019

We’re back at Lochgelly Raceway for another night of entertainment at Scotlands Premier Raceway!

It’s another 5 formula line up and it’s looking like a decent meeting with enough cars in all formula to provide good racing, and what’s more, the weather forecast is looking like its going to be nice to us and have some dry racing!

The Stock Rods are in action before they have a few weeks off of racing domestically. Stuart Bannatyne and Gary Nicholls are set to return to racing after missing a few meetings for varying reasons. Christopher Leslie also makes a return after missing out last weekend due to gearbox issues with the car. Darren McAlpine will be back at red grade after his double heat win last weekend and will be hoping for the car to show the same sort of pace that it has shown from blue in the last month after a disappointing start to the season by his standards. Siobhan Martin has been in excellent form so far this season, with a number of final wins already under her belt, she’ll be looking to continue that form this weekend, however, her long term competitor, Chris Lattka will be looking to put an end to that run! This week’s meeting final tyre is sponsored by Alan Cuthbert.

The Superstox look set to have there best turnout of the season, with Chris Cuthbert and Mark Dews returning to action this weekend. Chris Miller had a disastrous meeting last week after seeing his engine let go in the opening race, but is expected to be back out in action this weekend. Bryan Forrest has shown good speed and consistency in both dry and wet conditions and has certainly got to grips with his car this year already. Dean Johnston has potentially been the driver of the season so far however, after starting the season as a blue grade driver has stepped up to the red grade and has certainly held his own, even managing a couple of wins in the process. Dean isn’t afraid to mix it up and knows how to use the bumper and dispose of the opposition at the earliest opportunity as to not be held up for too long! European Champion Stuart Gilchrist is as yet unsure if he’ll make the racing due to work, but is hoping to be in attendance after missing a few meetings this season already. Adam Low has managed to get his Zetec powered car going good and has picked up a few race wins in the process, and is another driver who isn’t afraid of an on track battle! Allan Gibson hopes to make his first outing of the season.

The Junior Productions have seen a good increase in car numbers this season with more expected to join in the coming months. Last week 3 newcomers made there debut, Jensen Bell, Amy Devine and Leona Anderson, with Jensen having the most success after picking up a couple of podium finishes. All three were at mid week practice and seem to be progressing well and will no doubt all be up there soon battling for podium finishes. Jack Beresford and Koddi Wright currenty lead the way in the points, but with the likes of Dylan Smart and Chloe Baird gaining confidence on a week by week basis, the challenges for the wins are going to become more difficult.

The 2.0 Hot Rods have made a good start to the season and have provided some of the best non contact racing you’ll see. Good fields of cars have been pretty consistent throughout the season already and this weekend certainly looks to continue the trend. Jim Pitcaithly, Brian Wilson, Gerry Hendry will lead the charge for victories, however Kevin Stewart, Billy Bonnar and Chas Bain will be looking to challenge them and put up a good fight. There is very little between a lot of the drivers this year and as previous meetings have proved, this provides for excellent racing – Certainly a formula worth watching. With the cut off for the upcoming European Championship being on the 18th May, there is only a couple of meetings left for drivers to score points to secure the place in the ATP / JP Fabrications European Championship which will see BTCC star Aiden Moffat compete as a guest entry.

The Ninja Karts are in action for the first of 2 meetings in succession, and have another strong field of karts. The youngsters have proven themselves to be a valuable asset to the race format over a number of years, but this year they seem to be excelling themselves. Just under 30 karts are expected to be in attendance with around 20 karts in each race, the racing always keeps you on the edge of your seat! The likes of Rachel Kidd, Charlie Hardie, Bailey Millar and Toby Tyson will be hoping for a clean meeting with them, plus a few others travelling south to participate in the Ninja Kart European Championship at Aldershot on the Sunday.

Ensure you join us for what looks to be a good meeting here at Lochgelly Raceway!

HRP Preview 27-4-19
26th of April 2019

We’re back for the latest round of action at Lochgelly Raceway, Scotlands Premier Raceway!!

The Superstox are in action with us this weekend. Bryan Forrest leads the track championship in 2019 so far, and will be hoping to extend that lead this weekend. Chris Miller is back in action after missing the last few meetings due to work and family commitments. Chris will be hoping to get back to what he knows best quickly. Lee Livingston debuted a new car for him at the last meeting and encountered some braking and handling issues that he will hope to have resolved. Derek Kilday has made good progress since returning to racing after a number of years on the other side of the fence, Derek will be hoping to continue that progress as he bids to seal his first top three finish in the formula. Kenny McKenzie, Mark Brady and Dean Johnston have all started the season in good form and haven’t been afraid to mix it up with the use of the front bumper, much the same will be expected from them this weekend as they look to keep there competitors on there toes. Mark Dews and Stuart Gilchrist are hoping to be with us this weekend pending work commitments.

The Junior Productions have began to show signs of encouragement after a slow start to the formula since it’s introduction. Leona Anderson is the latest new driver to join the ranks and should be out this week. Jack Beresford and Koddi Wright are likely to start as the two favourites for silverware this coming weekend, however you can’t rule anyone out as these kids make progress quickly!!

The ProStocks are in action for the second week in succession. Lee Kopacz won a couple of races last week and only missed out in the final after coming home in 2nd place behind David Linton. David Linton is another driver who has started the season off in good form, already sealing a number of wins in 2019. Further back the pack, Paul Barron has been the top scorer although he looks to have been having some fun on track last week as he was mixing things up with the other drivers, most notably with John Jackson in the meeting final last week; Paul was up into second place and looked set to chase down the leader but decided to have a crash and attempt a spin on John Jackson which cost him second place as a result. It’s not all about winning they say!!

The CC Rods have been picking up as the season has gone on, and this week looks no different with a good turnout of cars expected to be with us. Colin Thomson is set to debut his new car that looks really smart. He’ll be hoping it goes as good as it looks. Craig Watson failed to make it out for heat one last week, so will be hoping to get a little further this week. Lee Wotherspoon was in fine form last week taking a couple of race wins, which seen him elevated up the grades for this Saturday. Can Lee win from a little further back, or will the likes of Ian Hotchkies, Ian Donaldson and Paul Muir be able to chase him down? Find out on Saturday night!

The Stock Rods have been on there travels, with a number of drivers racing in Ireland and Hednesford over the recent Bank Holiday weekend. It is back to domestic action tonight though, and the non contact brigade will be looking to provide some excellent door to door racing. Chris Lattka and Siobhan Martin lead the points charts, but any number of drivers are capable of winning races. Stuart Bannatyne won a 2 races on his first outing of the season the last time he raced, can he carry on that form? Gary Dean hasn’t quite shown the speed he had at the end of last year; he will be looking to change his fortunes and be back up there challenging for race wins. Darren McAlpine starting from blue grade will be hoping to make the most of it, though the likes of Stewart Paterson and Andy Grant will have the same ideas!!

Ensure you join us on Saturday night for our final meeting of April at Lochgelly Raceway.

Lochgelly 12th April
10th of April 2019

Friday Night Racing Is BACK!

Our first Friday night meeting of 2019 is upon us and we welcome the Ministox, Superstox, Stock Rods and 2.0 Hot Rods at Lochgelly Raceway in what should be a great way to start of your weekend!

The Ministox have been in sensational form in the early part of the season with some excellent bumper to bumper action from the youngsters. There has been around 20 cars in attendance at each of our meetings in 2019 and this week looks no different with over 20 cars currently booked in to race on Friday night. Friday night will see Aaron Richards join us yet again as he looks to continue his good haul of points at Lochgelly Raceway this season. Ciaran Adams was in good form last time out and will be looking to continue that streak as he looks to get himself back up to red grade at the first time of asking after dropping to blue for April. Mitchell Gold started the season off on fire but struggled last time he was out here at Lochgelly Raceway; Mitchell has had some great battles with his on track competitors this season which is all part of the parcel in the Ministox class. Scott Allardyce has done a fair bit of travelling this year already and was at Skegness last weekend. Scott has started the season well and will be looking to turn his consistency into race victories, starting this weekend! Taylor Borthwick has been in excellent form and currently leads our track championship. Taylor isn’t scared to mix it up neither, and is certainly one to watch both this weekend and throughout the season. Jamie Stewart is another one that has shown good form this year and is currently leading the HRP National Points. Jamie Stewart and Mitchell Gold have had some excellent battles between them already here at Lochgelly and this coming Friday we expect to be much the same. Newcomers this year, Robbie Armit, Jake Wilson and Rian Mitchell have all made a mark in 2019 and have been recognised by most as showing a lot of potential – The Ministox class of 2019 certainly looks to be up there as one of the best already.

The 2.0 Hot Rods have started the season off excellently with a very evenly matched grid of cars which has given us some excellent racing this season – Jim Pitcaithly and Kevin Stewart stole the headlines last time out for a fantastic battle for the lead in the final, as well as providing some excellent entertainment during the heats. A good grid of cars always helps the cause and this season looks to be the best season that the formula has had since it was brought to Scotland a few years ago. Gary Black, Brian Wilson, Ryan Mackie, Trevor Calvin and Colin Wotherspoon all had some fascinating races and have proven difficult to be overtaken; watch out for some more 5/6 car battles developing this Friday night in the 2.0 Hot Rod class as drivers try different approaches and different styles to move up through the places. Englishman Dave Leech is a welcome visitor as he looks to get in some practice ahead of the June Speedweekend!

Siobhan Martin and Chris Lattka have both started the season well in the Stock Rods and will both be with us tonight as they battle there way from the back of the grid to score as many points as they possibly can in the race for the National Points. 2019 doesn’t look to be a 2 horse race however, as the likes of Jamie Bell and Gary Dean have both scored well in the early part of the season and look more than capable of keeping up a challenge. Stewart Paterson is back out tonight and will be hoping to claim his first win of the season after having one taken off of him last time the stock rods were out here at Lochgelly Raceway. Stuart Bannatyne rejoined the ranks recently and got his season off to a flier scoring a couple of race wins – He’ll be starting a bit further back this Friday night though after his upgrading, but will no doubt be in the mix for race wins again given the pace that he demonstrated previously!

The Superstox are the final formula in action. The Superstox class have started the season off fairly slowly in relation to car numbers, but have more than made up for that with on track action. Dean Johnston is finding good pace in his car of late and is certainly looking to be one of the top drivers in 2019. Dean has been progressing as a driver since he came into the formula and now looks capable of mixing it up with the likes of Bryan Forrest and Stuart Gilchrist, and isn’t shy to put his front bumper to good effect neither. Similarly, Mark Dews finally looks to have found the form that we all know he is capable of after scoring his first race win in the last outing for the Superstox – Mark will be hoping for some more silverware this weekend.

Ensure you join us on Friday night and start your weekend off with a bang!!!

All the action for just £10 per adult!



Keir Millar Memorial Meeting
20th of March 2019

Hardie Race Promotions are pleased to release the poster for this years Keir Millar Memorial meeting to be held on 11th May, with the permission of Keir’s family.

We’d love to see a great turnout across the formula that Keir was a part of, or loved most.

Bookings are now open for this special event. Please book via home Promotions where required or message the page.



Nifty Ninjas
20th of March 2019

We’re back for more action at Lochgelly Raceway and it is the youngsters that look to be stealing the headlines!

A huge number of Ninja Karts are due to be in action – 30 at the time of writing including English visitor Jake Ashby in the 507 kart. Charlie Hardie won 3 races last time out but will be hard pushed to do the same this time out with an increase in number of karts on track. Bailey Millar will be looking to push Charlie all the way as Bailey looks for his first win of the season after narrowly missing out in the opening meeting after a great battle with Hardie. Lewis Dickson will be looking to make the most of his white grade start and will be looking for a race win on the evening – Lewis was in good form last time out and was unlucky in a couple of the races. Keiron Hay won the Whites and Yellows race, and will be looking to score a few points in this meeting too. A number of karts in the lower grades have opted to do the three main heats rather than the whites and yellows races in order to push their confidence levels further. For the Ninja Karts, it is the final meeting of the month and will therefore see a regrading done after the meeting as the grids look set to be reshuffled come April!

The Ministox are in action for the 2nd successive week and for the 3rd time this season, English visitor Aaron Richards is due to be in attendance with us. All credit must go to Aaron and his team putting in the miles week after week, they are a credit to the sport with the effort and commitment shown. Aaron didn’t have the best of luck last week and will be hoping for a change in fortunes this week. Rian Mitchell debuted in the 172 car last week, taking over from brother Micheal who has now retired, although it is rumoured he may be out in a banger later this year. Robbie Armit has been making great progress in his Ministox and has scored a number of points from the back of the grid already. Mitchell Gold has made a flying start to the 2019 season which see’s him top the points standings; Mitch will be hoping to get a few more points under his belt before he moves up the grades at the beginning of April. Scott Allardyce has made a steady start to the season, and although hasn’t picked up any race wins as yet, has always shown great consistency to score a lot of points. There will be a whites and yellows race to start of the meeting which has been organised in co-ordination with the Ministox Disco team.

The Stock Rods are out in force this weekend with the best turnout of the season to date, with 17 cars booked in to race. Debuts are expected for Pete Honeyman and Craig Tosh, whilst Alan Cuthbert is hoping to be back on track after sitting out the last meeting. Chris Lattka, Ricky White and Siobhan Martin will lead the charge from the back of the grid in the heats to try and score well in order to get a good grid position for the meeting final. Jamie Bell had a meeting to remember last time and will be hoping for more of the same. With 17 cars on track, the on track spectacle is sure to be enthralling as the cars dual for position. Certainly a formula worth the watch! Stuart Bannatyne has put up a tyre for the final in the Stock Rods as a little extra sponsorship.

The CC Rods are back in action sponsored by Colin Wotherspoon Joinery. Darren MacDonald is back out this time from the yellow grade after picking up a couple of race wins last time, Darren will be looking for the same kind of results this weekend. Ian Donaldson was quick last time out and was unlucky not to pick up any race wins for his efforts, but with some of the quicker lower grade driver having won a few races already and now starting a bit further back, it will give the drivers coming from the back an opportunity to catch them, maybe. Brandon Gourlay will be hoping to finish each of the races tonight in order to give him a chance of scoring well.

The final formula in action are the 1300 Stock Cars, which has seen a few extra sponsors come on board for the meeting, including Team Whyte who are going to put up extra money for the meeting final, whilst Sutherland Home Improvements and REL have put up 4 tyres between them for the 1300s as well. Sean Naismith looks set to make his debut in the car that brother Rory was due to be out in, whilst Craig Connelly looks set to make his first outing of the season, with Bobby Gold hoping to have his car ready in time too.

Join us at Lochgelly Raceway for an action packed night full of entertainment, all for just £10!!

Don’t forget, under 12s go FREE, concessions are only £5 and we offer trackside parking for just £5 per vehicle too!

Please note, no public or race teams are permitted in the holding area in the pits. We also ask kindly that those with high vehicles and are using trackside parking, use the upper 2 levels.




Bangers Are Back In Action
14th of March 2019

The Bangers Are Back In Town
Saturday 16th March will see another great 5 formula line up, with the Ministox back in action after there great show at the season opener, whilst the Superstox and 2.0 Hot Rods return for there 2nd meetings of the season as well. The ProStocks make their season debut here at Lochgelly Raceway, and the 2l National Bangers compete for the first round in the 2019 HRP Series.

The Ministox see Aaron Richards join us from south of the border for the 2nd time this season already, Aaron took the first final of the season last time out and will be looking for a similar set of results this weekend. Rian Mitchell may make his debut in the formula, taking over the 172 from brother Michael if the car is ready in time. A host of former Ninja Kart drivers are expected to be on track, including Robbie Armit and Jake Wilson, with both trying to find there feet in the formula after stepping up. Northern based driver Ross Lawrence makes the trip south to join us again. Taylor Borthwick has made a good start to the season and will be looking to secure her first win at Lochgelly in 2019 this weekend after narrowly missing out last time out.

The National Bangers are here for the first round of the HRP Series, which will see the winner at the end of the series deemed the HRP National Points Champion, thus gaining a wildcard entry into the World Final. Bookings have been slow in forthcoming but with a couple of travelling drivers due with us, we aren’t far away from where we’d like to be in terms of rebuilding the banger scene. It is hoped that numbers will increase throughout the season and it gives us a platform to build bangers up to where they once were in Scotland. The drivers will as always, go out to entertain and put on a show for the crowd.
The ProStocks are with us for the first time this year and will see a few new names on track, with David Ross back in action and David Izzat out for his first meeting. Paul Barron leads the line up with Ian Christie and Steven Gold out on track looking to challenge Barron for the honours this year.
The Superstox will be hoping for a drier night so that they can really find there form and understand any adjustments needing made to there cars this season to maximise speed. Adam Low was quick from yellow grade in the wet and will no doubt be looking to show that sort of form in the dry conditions too. Mark Brady will be looking to kick start his season after a disappointing outing on the 2nd March. Bryan Forrest and Chris Miller will be hoping to show the speed to give them the opportunity to win some silverware this season.

The 2.0 Hot Rods are back with us for the 2nd week in succession; Kevin Stewart will be looking to continue where he left off with a final win last time out. Ryan Mackie will hope to have the issues sorted that prevented him from competing full distance in the final after securing two heat wins previously. Former stock rodders, Jim Pitcaithly, Trevor Calvin will be hoping to secure another good haul of points, whilst they may be joined by Brian Wilson on track. Gerry Hendry was arguably the top driver of the 2018 season, and will be looking to win some titles in 2019.

Join us at Lochgelly Raceway from 6pm.

It’s only £10 per adult, concessions and 12-15 year olds are £5, whilst under 12s GO FREE!!

You an also park trackside for an additional £5 per vehicle.

HRP 9th March Preview
7th of March 2019

The Ninjas Are Ready To Battle
This coming Saturday will see the Stock Rods return to action for the 2nd week in succession; The non contact brigade always provide nail biting action here at Lochgelly Raceway, with highly competitive drivers across the grid. Chrissy Dearn dominated proceedings from the white grade in the heats last week before he was stuck with some form of technical issues which prevented him from participating in the meeting final in which Siobhan Martin took advantage of to take the first final win of the season. This weekend will see a Chrissy start from yellow grade where he may be more challenged for race victories but will no doubt enjoy the challenge, he’ll be hoping to make it out for the final this week though! Chris Lattka will be back out and looking to score a few more points, his work will be cut out though as a very strong field lies in front of him. Darren McAlpine and Jamie Bell will be out looking to pick up some good positions. Pete Honeyman and Gary Nicholls look set to make there first outing of 2019 and will want to get things off to a great start – both drivers are more than capable of scoring a good haul of points.

The CC Rods which were many peoples pick of the formula in 2018, make their debut for the 2019 season. Led by the likes of Ian Donaldson, David McFarlane and Craig Watson, close racing is always on the agenda with the CC Rods. David McFarlane had a great fight to the end for the points championship in 2018, and will be looking to have the same sort of form into this season. Ian Donaldson had one of his quieter seasons last year, but was still there or thereabouts when it came to race results, he’ll be looking for a bit more consistency this season and will be looking to kick of with a strong set of results on Saturday night. Brandon Gourlay has another nice new paint scheme on his car for this season, another driver who has shown potential in the class in recent years. Can Brandon make 2019 his year, and start off with a flurry?? Find out on Saturday at Lochgelly Raceway.

The 1300 Stock Cars are in action for the first time this season. It is hoped that 2019 will see an improvement in numbers for the formula compared to what was 2018. Early indications are good that a decent amount of cars should be in attendance regularly throughout the season. British Champion Paul Ford is booked in to be racing this week as it National Points Champion Andrew Mathieson. A couple of newcomers to the formula this season should bolster the numbers, including Dean Abercrombie and Rory Naismith, both of whom are due out this weekend. Further new drivers include Sean Naismith and Craigy Millar who will both be out in the near future. Whether there is 8 or 28 cars on track, the 1300 Stock Car drivers here at Lochgelly Raceway, always aim to put on a show.

The 2.0 Hot Rods are with us for the first time in 2019; a good number of cars have booked in for the opening meeting including newcomers to the formula, Trevor Calvin, Marc Fortune and Ger Wilson, all of whom have years of racing experience behind them and are all more than capable of competing for championships as the year progresses. Returnee’s to the formula include Gary Black and Paul Carruthers who both participated in 2018, but will be hoping to participate in a few more meetings in 2019. Gerry Hendry will be looking to continue the form that he was in during 2018, a season that can be looked back upon as his best to date, Gerry will be looking to add some silverware to his haul in 2019 after coming close a couple of times last year. Billy Bonnar, the reigning Scottish Champion and Track Champion will be looking to kick off his season with a good haul of point as he looks to retain his titles he won in 2018. Kevin Stewart brought out a new car towards the tail end of the 2018 season and seemed to get it on the pace quickly, he’ll be looking to continue in good form tonight and throughout the season. Jim Pitcaithly joined the formula last year and quickly got up to speed before his season was hampered with some damage. Jim is back out for 2019 and the former ORCi Stock Rod champion will be hoping to be in the top points scoring positions through the season. John Campbell, another driver who has shown great speed in the past will be balancing his activities this year with competing with the Classic Hot Rod. Andrew Denholm, Ryan Adamson and Colin Wotherspoon will all be looking to start the 2019 campaign off in style – one thing for sure is the class certainly has a strong calibre of driver in its rank, and each of them are capable of winning some silverware.

Finally, the Ninja Karts are our fifth formula in action and over 20 karts are booked in for the opening event. With a number now having moved onto more senior formula, there place on the grid has been quickly re-occupied with a number of novices entering the formula. Bailey Millar and Charlie Hardie are the two most experienced drivers on the grid now, with both finishing up in the formula throughout 2019. Rachel Kidd and Demi Ritchie will be the two looking to challenge Bailey and Charlie, though, some of the newcomers to the formula may find there feet quickly and be looking to get up the grades quickly. The Ninja Karts here at HRP Lochgelly Raceway are full of talented drivers, with each of them showing great maturity and sportsmanship on track, it’s a pleasure to watch them fly around the oval with such great control.

Join us at Lochgelly Raceway from 6pm, Saturday 9th March!

HRP 2nd March
28th of February 2019

We're Back With A Bang!!!

The 2019 stock car season kicks off at Lochgelly Raceway this coming Saturday (2nd March 2019) at 6pm! What a start to the season we have in prospect with the National Big Van Bangers competing for the Shaun Walsh Memorial, Superstox, Stock Rods, Ministox and National Hot Rod World Qualifying Round all on the agenda. Hardie Race Promotions are delighted to announce that admission costs will again be frozen at just £10 for adults, £5 for concessions (and 12-15 year olds) with under 12’s going free at all domestic events throughout the 2019 season!! We offer trackside parking on a first come first served basis for just £5 per vehicle.

The Van Bangers are always a crowd favourite here at Lochgelly Raceway with mid to high teens expected in attendance, there will be no shortage of carnage and action around the raceway. Although crashing is the name of the game, the drivers will all want to win the main race due to its prestige nature, although some others may be more keen on scooping the entertainer award – a further incentive has been put up by Ayreshire Car Breaks and Hardie Race Promotions to further encourage entertainment, not that banger drivers need much encouragement! One such driver who always go out to entertain is Cowdenbeath based Lee Clarke.

The Superstox have looked good in pre-season practice, with a number of new cars expected to be in attendance, most notably that of former Scottish Champion Bryan Forrest in the 309 machine. A welcome return to action will see Lee Livingston back on track for the first time in around 2 years. Derek Kildare returns to the scene after last gracing the tracks near on 20 years ago! Chris Miller returns to action after a period on the sidelines last year, Chris will be hoping to find the form that he started 2018 before his car was badly damaged. Add in Stuart Gilchrist, Aaron Riddell, and the number of other challengers, and competition is certainly going to be fierce in the Superstox in 2019. Hardie Race Promotions host the Superstox Championship of the World later this year at Lochgelly Raceway.

Like the Superstox, the Stock Rod World Championship is set to be held at Lochgelly Raceway later this year as well. Leading the Scottish contingent will be superstars Chris Lattka and Siobhan Martin who have won everything there is to win between them in the Stock Rod class; They’ll both be looking to get the season off to a great start and find that optimum setup ahead of the main event later this year. However, it’s never easy to win a title or regular race final due to the level of competition within the formula. Gary Dean had a great 2018 season and will be looking to kick off 2019 in much the same manner. Darren McAlpine is always there or thereabouts as well when it comes to taking the chequered flag at the end of each race. You can never discount the lower graders at Lochgelly Raceway; Lower graded drivers accounted for a high percentage of race wins last season. Chrissy Dearn and Craig Tosh are 2 of the drivers set to join the ranks in the formula this year. The Stock Rods will have extra on offer this weekend with a tyre being put up for the final winner and a couple of other small prizes for 2nd and 3rd placed drivers, courtesy of Pie Performance and ASD Welding Services.

The youngers in the Ministox have seen a few of the more senior drivers move onto senior formula over the winter. Despite this, there are over 20 Ministox booked in at the time of writing!! The Ministox have been the formula to watch in Scotland for the last number of years due to the action and entertainment that they always provide. A great number of cars is always expected and when the Ministox are on, people very rarely leave disappointed. Last years novice driver Scott Allardyce will start the season a bit further down the field than he did this time last year, but with his experience now behind him, he’ll be looking to be right up there looking for race wins and titles in 2019. Ciaran Adams will be joined on track by his younger sister Mirran Adams, with a host of new youngsters joining the formula. Who'll be the one to beat in 2019?

The lightning quick National Hot Rods are the final formula in action at our opening meeting. 2018 was probably the best year of this decade for the formula in Scotland, and 2019 certainly seems to be starting off on the right foot, with a few new drivers entering the formula including former 2.0 Hot Rod World Champion Gordon Alexander. Local driver Billy Bonnar will again be competing in the class as he looks to secure his place on the World Final grid at Ipswich in July. The National Hot Rod European Championship is back at Lochgelly Raceway in 2019 with the drivers from around the UK, Ireland and Mainland Europe descending onto the venue on the 6th and 7th of April.

Join us at Lochgelly Raceway from 6pm, Saturday 2nd March for our 2019 season opener!

Future of Superstox
8th of October 2018

I have been looking at the Superstox for the last couple of years and feel that they are following the same pattern as the BriSCA F2s have done and it has not worked for the F2s and they were a lot bigger than what Superstox are. Therefore, I feel that rule changes have got to come in to start trying to even the cars up. I sit and watch the races and if the conditions and tracks are good the top drives can be in the lead within eleven laps. This is not good for spectators and is not good for lower grade drivers without big budgets.

The first change will be with brakes. You will be allowed a maximum of a 240mm size disc. There will be no machining or grinding of callipers or wheels. Reason, if one of these broke who would be responsible for it? The callipers must be symmetrical from side to side on the same axle and with the same size piston. Other than as stated here the callipers will stay the same as per section 14.1 of the 2018 Superstox Rules & Regulations. We are going to a single brake cylinder. This will work front and back brakes and you are only allowed one single reducer which will be in the line to the back brakes. Brake pads will remain free for next season and I have already had talks with Mintex who are quite willing to make the brake pads and police it for the 2020 season if I feel we need to go further with brakes.

Anti-roll bars from next season will be banned. No torsions arms or any connecting arms from one side to the other on the suspension. In-board suspension will be symmetrical from side to side and not adjustable rockers. The rocker itself will not be adjustable to alter the ratio.

Shock Absorbers from 2020 will be going onto controlled shock absorbers. More details will follow on this. Shock absorbers from 2019, you will not be allowed to change your shock absorbers one your car has been safety checked. Shock absorbers cannot be changed unless damaged. You must get a scrutineer to confirm this. This is to stop people from changing shocker absorbers from wet to dry now we have banned the anti-roll bar. If you are caught changing a shock absorber without permission this will be classed as cheating and therefore you will receive a ban.

If this does not work, then for 2020 I will look into link arm lengths and putting everyone onto the same back suspension.

I know this is going to upset some of the top drivers, but I am sorry I have done a lot of investigating in the last six months and spoken to a lot of drivers who have stopped racing and they feel that the sport in general is getting to complicated and too dear. Therefore, I am trying to keep it inline of not just money but being fun as well. Please do not go on social media and start criticizing because this is not good for our sport or the formula. This is not just things I have done on my own, I have spoken to a lot of different people and car builders as well and I have to do what I think is right for the formula to create closer and more exciting racing.
