Cowdenbeath preview by Mc Fastlane

Cowdenbeath Racewall Saturday 28th July Scottish Series Round Three Preview
‘The Racewall Rumble’
Now that the dust has settled from the Spedeweekend at Ipswich we now turn our attention to the domestic scene where firstly we have to congratulate 17 Kenny Purdie on becoming the New National Champion 2018 who straight away dedicated his win to his late father Jim Purdie who sadly passed away last year and had been the driving force behind Kennys success over the years and of course we can’t forget 2nd place driver 871 Graeme Callander who showed what could be achieved with a Zetec engine under the bonnet taking his immaculate Mk2 escort so close but rumour has it Graeme will be Pinto powered this weekend with his stunning Mk1 escort. Both drivers will be returning from holiday and ready to take there place on the grid this weekend.
Joining Kenny and Graeme on track are our two local drivers 162 Keith Chesher in his Pinto powered Mk2 escort who enjoyed two wins and a second last time out and will be looking for more of the same and 84 John McFarlane who will be making his first appearance of the season with his new pinto powered Mk2 escort. Joining us from the Highlands we have the ever improving Marc Spence in the 756 Talbot Sunbeam along with 523 Matt MacPherson with his lovely Zetec powered Mk2 escort. Next we have 58 Alex Wilson although having a disappointing Spedeweekend still showed the potential of the now Zetec powered Chevette certainly one to watch this weekend. Moving on to the ever impressive 232 Brett Sneddon who took a win and two seconds last time out and is always in the mix come the chequered flag in his pinto powered Mk2 escort. Well where do I start with our next driver 12 Trevor Harris ‘Some Say’ he is just using this Saturday at the Racewall as a pit stop having travelled more than the allocated 500 miles for a Scotsman taking in Arlington and Aghadowey ( NI ) only to head off again to Yarmouth Stadium for Sunday nights Classic Hot Rod meeting, Trevor in fact won his first ever race in a Classic Hot Rod at Aghadowey so well done that man. That concludes the Scottish entry leaving only one remaining entrant for the evenings racing at the Racewall and that’s 116 Adrian Taber from Norfolk who has enjoyed a good run of form in the ex Sam Mitchell Pinto powered Mk2 escort even though Adrian could appear with his Zetec powered Anglia we will just need to wait and see whatever Adrian decides to use he knows he always gets a warm reception and is pretty much becoming a regular on the Scottish scene.
Good luck to everyone this weekend and have fun lads
