Classic Hot Rods Scottish Round 5-5

Classic Hot Rods Scottish Round 5
HRP Lochgelly Raceway 15th September

This weekend we see the Classics return to Lochgelly to contest round 5 of the Scottish series in which there is a healthy 10 cars booked for the evenings racing. Last time out at Cowdenbeath Racewall 26 John Campbell won the Joan Purdie Memorial Trophy and this weekend John is planning racing his 2Ltr Hot Rod as well as his Classic on the night, joining John we have 232 Brett Sneddon and 162 Keith Chesher who have been treating the Classic followers to some excellent racing between each other in their Mk2 Escorts. Heading down once again from the Scottish Highlands are 526 Matt MacPherson and 756 Marc Spence in which both drivers have shown that on there day are quite capable of pulling a win out of the bag. Back after a bad collision at Birmingham Wheels we have 12 Trevor Harris who somehow managed not only to rebuild his badly damaged Anglia but has also found the time to give his car a stunning makeover and since we are on the subject of damaged cars we once again welcome back 63 John Watkins who for the second time this season has had to rebuild his Mk1 Escort so hopefully John can stop at the chip shop in Halbeath after the meeting this weekend car fully intact. Another driver setting the heather on fire just now is 58 Alex Wilson with his Zetec powered Chevette having won heat 1 at Hednesford Hills last time out and Alex certainly knows his way round the tight Lochgelly track. Starting back in the fold this weekend is 84 John McFarlane having been happy with his new car at Hednesford Hillls after some teething issues and is hoping to be back in the mix Saturday night. Last but not least we have National Champion 17 Kenny Purdie hopefully not making his last appearance in Scotland in a Classic Hot Rod and if it is we wish Kenny all the best for the future and for helping put Scottish Classic Hot Rods firmly on the map. I would like to take the opportunity to wish all the drivers who are making the trip over to Tullyroan to support the Jim Purdie Memorial meeting …Good Luck Guys
