The Angus racer led home fellow Scot Stuart Shevill Jnr, Carluke, whilst Fifer Ross Watters was eighth

There was the regular Angus representation at the Cowdenbeath Racewall in Fife over the weekend.

Lana Middler, Carnoustie, was racing her micro f2, picking up a tenth in heat one, an eighth in heat two and then another tenth in the final.

Westfield Motors from Carnoustie were the sponsors of the micro F2 races with Lana presenting the drivers with their trophies.

Elsewhere, there was drama in practice with Camey Dorrell blew an engine in practice but that was the only major catastrophe. Richard Carter was another casualty whilst Frankie Wainman Jnr bounced off the wall and had a busy spell in the pits. There were many minor changes as the drivers looked to get the best from their cars.

Scottish interest in the formula 1s centered around John Fortune and Chris Burgoyne who was in a Wainman hire car.

Whilst the formula 1 meeting was a World Championship qualifying round the final was also their Scottish Championship.

The formula I heats were won by white grader Dan Hughes from John Fortune whilst heat two went to Simon Traves and heat three to Charlie Sworder. The Scottish Championship was won by Traves who was well clear of Michael Scriven and Lee Fairhurst.

The stock c ar meeting at the Racewall is on Friday night and has the saloon drivers back in action.
