Angus drivers have been deep in their preparations for the new racing season.

It’s going to be a busy week for the stock car drivers at the Cowdenbeath Racewall who took part in a practice at the weekend and now only have a few days to either carry out adjustments or to get their cars ready for the season getting underway this Sunday, March 6.

Promoters GMP have carried out some work at the Fife stadium.

Most of that work has focused on the systems with plans to get the scoreboard working on going.

Amongst those at the practice session have been the Brechin duo of Barry Russell and Logan Bruce, along with Forfar’s Peter Low.

All three had good outings and will be looking forward to the season getting started at the weekend.

Martin Joy, from Monifieth, gave a debut the car he had recently purchased and was without the quickest during all his outings and will be keen to get his season underway.

Carnoustie’s Lana Middler had a good session with her micro F2, showing a good turn of speed and it won’t be long before she is picking up some good results.

The opening meeting of the season has been switched from the usual Saturday date to Sunday due to Cowdenbeath playing their local rivals Kelty Hearts.

Sunday’s format brings the formula II and saloon drivers to the track along with the ORCi stock rods and minis.

There will be quite a few new cars on show and a few new drivers to boot.

The ORCi stock rod world champion David Philp Jnr will be debuting his new car in what should be an exciting start to the season.

As usual the meeting will commence at 1pm.

Race fans have also been reminded that the Racewall is being shown on BBC TV Scotland on Thursday at 10.30pm.

The show mainly features the rivalry between world champion Chris Burgoyne and the British champion Gordon Moodie.

A track spokesman said: “It didn’t happen in the Champion of Champions race but it did in the meeting final – could have been scripted for a Hollowood blockbuster.”
