Racewall revs into action

The stock cars roar back to life at the Cowdenbeath Racewall today (Saturday) and it promises to be yet another spectacular season.

Since the end of last season the infield fence, gates and stub walls have been removed and replaced with marker tyres. The concrete wall has been over clad with posts and a metal fence. Unfortunately the resurfacing of the track has not come to fruition but could happen either during the summer break or at the end of the year.

The first major meeting of the season is the Banger World Cup in April whilst at the end of May over the weekend there is the British Championship for formula IIs and the saloon National Championship. The first Knockhill event will take place on Wednesday, April 25, and as usual there are World Championship rounds at Knockhill and the Racewall for formula IIs and hot rods.

There are a few new faces appearing this season in the formula whilst Tam Melrose and Ross Watters are both bringing out two litre saloons. As usual the meetings start at 6pm but on the afternoon of the opening meeting there is a practice session for formula II and saloon drivers.
