AT Cowdenbeath Racewall on Saturday night there was plenty of action in the saloons, formula IIs and ministox.

In the formula IIs, the Fife drivers were Gregor Turner (Dunfermline), Paul Reid (Cowdenbeath), Kieran Howie (Dunfermline) and Gordon Moodie (Windygates).

Reid won the white/yellow challenge heat after Robert Henderson spun while leading.

In heat one, Moodie came through the field to lead home Jason McDonald and Chris Burgoyne. In heat two Moodie again was ahead of Burgoyne and McDonald when the flag fell.

In the final, Moodie got ahead on lap 12 and coasted through to win from Burgoyne and McDonald, with Reid seventh.

In the Grand National, McDonald did will to fend off the closing Burgoyne for the win, with Robbie Dawson in third.

The saloon drivers were in good form, with Luke Grief appearing, while the Kingdom drivers were Kyle Hegg (Leslie), Kyle Irvine (Glenrothes) and Ross Watters (Leven).

Heat one ended with David Hughes leading the race from start to finish and winning from Watters and Robin Copland.

In heat two, Hegg rolled his car (pictured above) and Gordon Alexander won from Stuart Shevill Jnr and Hughes.

In the final, Hughes hung on to pick up his second victory of the night, leading home Alexander and Honeyman.

The last race was the Dash for the Tyres, with Hughes going through to win.

The ministox drivers contested another of their Disco trophy rounds with Chris Briggs (Rosyth) the only Fifer.

Rory Naismith won heat one as he led home Briggs and Camie McGowan. Louise Honeyman then won heat two, leading home C. McGowan and Naismith, with Briggs eighth.

C. McGowan then won heat three, ahead of Dean Johnston and Colin Thomson, with Briggs seventh.

The last race ended with L. Honeyman picking up her second win of the evening, finishing ahead of Arran McGowan and C. McGowan, with Briggs in eighth place.

This week, the formula IIs are back racing along with the saloons and Prostox in a change to the fixture list, with the CHAS charity night being delayed for a week. As usual, it’s a 6pm start.
