There are high hopes that from June the stock car racing at the track will be back in full time action.

Recently the First Minister announced the way forward in Scotland with the “stay at home” edict being lifted on April 2 and later that month the travel restrictions will disappear.

Whilst small scale outdoor events can start as early as the May 17, there will be capacity restraints in place but these will be increased before early June.

Racing fans are now awaiting dates for when the stock car season can properly get underway where GMP Racing is looking forward to celebrating its 40th year.

The Micro F2s are booked to race at the Racewall on June 5, but there might be some closed door meetings prior to that.

There is the possibility of live streaming of the racing and that is being investigated at present.

Two dates to of note are the Formula II Nationals and World Qualifying round at Crimond on the June 26 before heading to the Racewall for a Scottish Sunday.
