THE National Points formula II champion, Gordon Moodie of Windygates, raced at the Skegness Raceway over the weekend and ended up with a very successful points haul.

On Saturday, Moodie won his heat and then the final, before bringing his car home in fifth place during the Grand National.

On Sunday, his winning ways continued and again he won his heat, as well as the meeting final.

In the Grand National, Moodie again was in good form, taking his car into the top 10, despite again having to start the race with a lap handicap.

There was no shortage of contact at the stock car meeting at the Cowdenbeath Racewall on Saturday night, with the saloon drivers especially in good form.

In the formula IIs, Craig Wallace won the white/yellow challenge race, while Marc Fortune debuted his new Elite chassis and must have been pleased with his initial outing.

Wallace then won the Grand National from Kirkaldy and Adcroft, with Dawson back in 10th place.

The saloon drivers showed almost from the word go that they were going to serve up some interesting races, with local Ross Watters of Leven in action.

The minis were in good form, with the Fife drivers being Dale Buchan, Euan Mathieson and Kieran Howie.

Their last race of the night ended with Millar going through to win from Rennie and McGowan with Buchan in seventh place.

There were a few of the banger drivers from south of the border.

Heat one saw Bob Moffat go through to win from Joe Morgan and Matty Threlkeld.

Heat two was won by Morgan from Andy Armstrong and Stevie Allan.

Threlkeld then won the final from Moffat and Alan Elwood, while after a few hefty wallops, Threlkeld won the Destruction Derby.

This Saturday, it’ll be the formula IIs and saloons on the starting grid, with the minis racing in the second round of their disco series. The prostox drivers are also back in action.

The meeting starts at Central Park at 6pm.
