The track was dry and as a result produced some exciting racing.

Paul Reid was posted missing from the formula II ranks but back racing were Emma Mellis and Craig Reid.

In the formula IIs the local driver was Peter Watt, Kirriemuir, and he had a good night’s racing, although a spin in the first heat saw him drop down the order.

Although he quickly recovered, he had to settle for ninth place. In heat two and the final Watt brought his car home in ninth place but in the Grand National he ended up in eighth place.

Barry Russell, from Brechin, was involved in some pretty hectic action with all three races being decided with a last bend challenge.

Russell was the benefactor during the opening heat and picked up a couple of late places to be the first home. In heat two Russell ended up in second place but then had to settle for third place during the final.

In the p rostock basics Keilan Ogilvie, Brechin, Jamie Reid, Brechin, and Martin Joy, Monifieth, were competing .

Reid won the opening heat with Ogilvie in seventh and Joy picking up a ninth place.

Reid was in a shunt in heat two and had to retire with Ogilvie fifth with Joy not finishing in the top ten.

The final was a cracking race with Cammy Deans going through to win with Ogilvie in fifth but Joy wasn’t classified.

The m icro F2 drivers were in good form with all the wins going to driver from the north of Scotland. Lana Middler, Carnoustie, was on the grid and she had a good meeting bringing his car home in tenth place in the opening heat and then ninth in heat two.

Unfortunately, her car suffered damage at the end of heat two and she didn’t start the final.

This Saturday the f ormula IIs and saloons again take top billing and they are joined on the grid by the ORCi stock rods and the two litre bangers. T he racing starts at 6.00pm. Check the website for further information and discount bookings.
