The racing was electric both days this weekend but we had a few casualties and a few cars by the wayside.
Lochgelly started out with eight cars , one or two having mechanical issues across the night especially Dan Buckley who found good form and took a heat win before the gearbox failed.
Kenny Purdie won the other heat and put on a great display with 555 Taber in the final has they went side by side for most of the distance, Taber taking the victory.
Graeme Callendar unveiled his latest car an Mk2 Escort and the car looked on the right pace but he was one who suffered teething issues over the weekend; His ex ford 100e at the hands of Martin Balfour suffered rear end issues with the back axle.
A trip through the early hours brought four of the drivers back down to Hednesford; Buckley and team working on the car until gone 6 am fitting a new gearbox. Little did they know the hard work would amount to a bad day in the office at Hednesford? A pile up in heat one proved fatal for the mk2 with heavy frontal damages and an end to his racing for the weekend.
Newcomer Steve Hunt in the ex Darren Owen car had two top ten but failed to finish the final; whilst Darren Fewell who span out in heat one finished sixth in the final when the field of cars dropped one by one with a few piling in on turn four as Hollis lost the tail end in turn three.
Boyd snr was in fine form aboard Craig’s Austin A40 bagging heat one when Steward faced a Dq , then going onto take heat two and a fantastic race for victory in the final.
Aldershot is scheduled for the next outing…Fingers crossed!
