This weekend coming

AUGUST 18th CLASSIC HOT RODS ROUND 4 JOAN PURDIE MEMORIAL
COWDENBEATH RACEWALL 17:45
Next up in Scotland we have a very healthy 11 Classic Hot Rods competing for the first ever Joan Purdie Memorial Trophy this Saturday night at the Racewall. The last outing at the Racewall seen some very exciting racing and this weekend is shaping up for a repeat with the added spice of two visiting English drivers or known up at the Racewall as the two Local Norfolk drivers the MacTabers being of course 555 Gavin with his Anglia who unfortunately missed the last meeting due to wedding rehearsals and 116 Adrian who last outing managed a very respectable 3rd in a very wet Final in his Escort. Also hoping to make it back from his holidays in time is double heat winner from the last meeting 58 Alec Wilson with his Zetec powered Chevette and on the subject of holidays our next driver is hoping to get an earlier flight home from the sun to be with us and that is 871 Graeme Callander who will be hopefully racing his Mk1 Escort. Also hopefully continuing their battle with each other we will have 232 Brett Sneddon and 162 Keith Chesher who simply entertained the Racewall crowd last outing with there close clean lap after lap racing with Keith coming out on top on the night so I sure Brett will be out to prove a point this weekend. Again hoping to kick on from his excellent 2nd place in that very wet Final last time out we have 523 Matt MacPherson in his Zetec powered Mk2 escort who just keeps improving . Joining us this weekend we have 26 John Campbell in his Mk2 escort, John being a very experienced driver who has been racing 2 Ltr Hot Rods for the last few seasons and showed last time out he is certainly one to watch. Out again for his second appearance of the season is 84 John McFarlane with his Mk2 escort who is hoping this meeting to find second gear and keep up with the pack. Next we have the long awaited return of 63 John Watkins who has had to rebuild his Mk1 escort after an incident at Lochgelly in April with Scotland’s equivalent to Lightning McQueen but I’m sure John will just be happy to be back out to enjoy himself and on the subject of Lightning McQueen we have the National Champion himself 17 Kenny Purdie who won the Final last outing at Cowdenbeath bringing the ‘Spanker’ home in style. We thank Kenny for sponsoring this meeting and see it as an honour to be competing for the Joan Purdie Memorial Trophy so good luck guys and enjoy your nights racing at the Racewall
