Brechin's Barry Russell wins Irish Masters Championship

Kirriemuir’s Peter Watt continued his good form in the formula IIs where he picked up an eighth place in the opening heat and then followed that with another eighth place in heat two.

The final was a close and fast race and whilst Watt dropped places early on, he fought back and eventually brought his car home in ninth place.

In the minis the heat winners were Robbie Armit, Charlie Hardie and Jake Wilson whilst Hardie won the final albeit being spun across the finish line from Scott Allardyce and Madison Gilmour.

The racing reverts to the usual Saturday night and features the BriSCA formula IIs, saloons, ORCi ministox and the micro F2s with the usual 6.00pm start.

Further news on the Banger World Cup is that Shane Davies has booked in to race with the numbers now in the high sixties.

Barry Russell from Brechin was racing his saloon over at Nutts Corner in Northern Ireland over the weekend and proved that he was one of the drivers they had to beat.

Both championship races were hard fought with plenty of action throughout the races.

Whilst he led the Irish Open on Saturday evening, he was eventually moved over and had to settle for the runners up spot.

It was a different story on Sunday when he went through to win the Irish Masters Championship.
