THERE was plenty of action at Cowdenbeath Racewall on Saturday night, with ministox driver Liam Rennie riding the top bend wall as he tried to get ahead of another car. His car ended up perched on the wall and Arran McGowan’s car.

In the hot rods Wayne Lee had to take avoiding action when Allan Ross spun and ended up wrecking the front of his car against the pit gate.

Derek Nimmo suffered a lot of damage to his lightning rod when he clashed with the wall and Alex Imrie’s car whilst in the formula IIs an oil spillage played havoc resulting in half a dozen cars crashing out.

There were 18 formula II cars with Carlos Perez and Mike Booth the visitors although the latter tangled with Paul Reid during the early stages of heat one resulting in both retiring from the meeting with Raymond Dick (Glenrothes) the local driver. Dick ran well in his heats but wasn’t placed and whilst he led the final for a considerable time ended up spinning out of second spot. During the Grand National he again led for most of the race but was finally caught and passed and in the end had to settle for second place.

The hot rods were contesting another of their World Championship qualifying rounds with the local driver being Ronnie McKenzie (Glenrothes). Although Ian Donaldson won all the races McKenzie picked up a sixth then a fourth in his heats and during the final brought his car home in sixth.
