The stock car drivers were in good form at the closed door stock car meeting at the Cowdenbeath Racewall on a pleasant but chilly Saturday afternoon.

There was a big shunt on the second heat of the ministox after a car spun right in front of the pack resulting in cars going in every direction and leaving the Scott Allardyce, Scott Smith and Koddi Wright left against the pit gate.

There was a twist at the end to their final when Hannah Borthwick crossed the line to win her first race.

There were seventeen minis at the start to the meeting but only nine finished the allcomers race.

Graeme Dignan (Methil) had a good afternoons racing in his prostock basic car where he started off with a runners up spot in the opening heat crossing the line just ahead of his son Jordan.

However at the start to heat two J Dignan was clipped as he tried to overtake another car and spun out.

That didn’t deter his father who made a good restart after a race suspension before going through to win.

The ministox drivers were in great form but the local drivers didn’t enjoy the breaks need to grab a win.

Scott Allardyce (Anstruther) was the runner up in the opening heat but was involved in the big shunt in heat two whilst Rian Mitchell (Lochgelly) was third in heat one, fourth in heat two, runner up in the final and then fourth in the Allcomers.

There is another closed door session next week which will bring the saloons back out along with the ORCi stock rods whilst the prostock drivers will be making their only appearance of the season.
