Reflecting on a great season in the formula II cars

The formula II season may be over in Scotland but there are still a few meetings to be run south of the border with the Gala Night in Skegness a particular highlight.

The Scottish formula II drivers have been to the fore again this season with Chris Burgoyne winning the World Championship at Skegness, Gordon Moodie the British Championship at Buxton whilst Steven Burgoyne won the Irish Open at Nutts Corner.

Mika Millar looks likely to be the novice of the year and, at this stage, is over 100 points clear of the second placed driver.

It’s certainly been a season to remember for those drivers competing in the formula II grade, with plenty of highlights to look back on.

There were two World Championship qualifying rounds in Scotland with Martin Ford winning at Crimond and the following afternoon at the Racewall Chris Burgoyne doing likewise.

The World Championship brought delight to the Scottish fans as Chris Burgoyne picked up his second win, 19 years after his first.

At the Racewall, Moodie won the Geo Mac 100 trophy and Dean McGill the white/yellow challenge final.

Peter Watt, from Kirriemuir, who had won his first race at Crimond and, after that, ran well until the white/yellow challenge series final where he was in a shunt and had to retire.

Towards the end of the season, Arbroath’s Brian Hogg Jnr returned to BriSCA racing and he showed up well in his outings.

The micro F2 drivers served up some really exciting racing and, bearing in mind that they are aged between seven and 11, speaks volumes for them.

The numbers were slightly down on last season due to age restrictions but there were a few new faces in action, including Scott Ramsay Jnr and Jeorgie Honeyman.

Ben McLellan managed to win a lot of races but the one who looks like he is going to be the one to catch is Cruz Strachan who was impressive over the last couple of meetings but he can expect a strong challenge from James Russell, Finlay Gemmell, Aiden Davidson and Taylor Rigby.

Lana Middler, from Carnoustie, Caitlin Mitchell and Jeorgie Honeyman have shown a lot of promise and should be looking for a win or two next year.
