IT was a night of action at the Cowdenbeath Racewall on a dry Saturday, with the prostox Scottish Championship the main race of the night, and it produced a few incidents.

James Moore had just forced his way into the lead, only to be sent crashing out of the race and into the pit bend wall.

Jason McDonald blew his engine in the formula II white/yellow challenge race but Alan Edmiston had a good night’s racing, winning a heat and then the BriSCA shootout final Scottish leg. In doing so, he elevated himself to a blue grader.

The saloon final had a hectic finish, with Stevie Honeyman being sent crashing heavily into the pit bend wall as Stuart Shevill Jnr moved through to win.

Among those in action was local driver Gordon Moodie of Windygates.

The white/yellow formula II challenge heat saw Reid go through to win from Edmiston, Stephen Forster and Dick.

The opening heat went the way of Robbie Dawson and he went through to win from Chris Burgoyne and Edmiston with Reid in eighth and Dick in 10th place. Edmiston then went on to win heat two, leading home Burgoyne and Moodie with Reid again in eighth place.

Daniel Scrimgeour led the cars away when the final started but, on lap four, Edmiston took over at the front and stayed there right to the end, although he was being reeled in by Burgoyne and Moodie with Reid in seventh place.

Dawson then won the Grand National from Dennis Middler and Garry Sime, with Edmiston in sixth place.

There was a good turnout of saloon drivers for the meeting and there was plenty of contact throughout, with the local drivers being Ross Watters and Alex Cunningham from Leven.

Stevie Honeyman won the opening heat, leading home Stuart Shevill Jnr and Barry Russell, with Irvine in fifth and Watters sixth.

Russell then came out on top in heat two and he crossed the finish line just clear of Honeyman and Shevill Jnr, with Watters in eighth.

The final was led by Chris Carey but he was to lose out to Ian McLaughlin.

Honeyman and Shevill Jnr made their way through the field and caught McLaughlin.

However, the Honeyman car bounced high as it made contact with the wall, allowing Shevill Jnr through to win.
