Cowdenbeath Racewall: Local drivers to compete at ORCI World Championships
One of the highlights of the 40th GMP season will be the running of the ORCI Stock Rod World Championship which is scheduled to be run over September 11/12.
Over that weekend the drivers will also race for their Open Scottish Championship so it is going to be a spectacular and exciting weekend of non contact racing.
Whilst the fixture list has been announced it can only be provisional until the First Minister decrees when and how many spectators will be allowed into the Stadium.
Meetings south of the Border have been cancelled due to spectators not be allowed admittance. With the Racewall being a stadium, the early meetings may have to be run behind closed doors although there is a chance of streaming those meetings.
According to the fixture list the first weekend meeting takes place on June 12/13 when the first of the two Scottish Championship weekends takes place when the Prostock Basic and Stoxkart drivers are in action.
Both will be racing in qualifying heats on the Saturday night with the Championships being held on Sunday afternoon.
The Prostock Basic formula was introduced to attract newcomers into stock car racing and at present are attracting quite a few new and talented drivers into the scene.
After the holiday break there is another two-day meeting at the Racewall on the July 31 and August 1.
The Saloon drivers race for their European Championship whilst the Ministox drivers fight it out for their British Championship.
Amongst the Ministox drivers will be Lewis Clark Burgoyne (Falkirk) and he will be amongst the pre race favourites after his last years display.
Charlie Faichney (Polmont) will be another that should qualify for the Championship race as will newcomer Charlie Burgoyne (Falkirk) who will be starting his Ministox career.
The ORCi Stock Rod World is held on September 11 with the Jane Burt Memorial trophy the highlight of the Sunday.
Amongst those in action could be James and Lauren Gray (Boness), Euan Robertson (Falkirk) and Mark Blackie (Tallboy), James Gray will be one of the favourites to win but he will have to be at his best to do so.
