THE stock car meeting at the Cowdenbeath Racewall, on Saturday night, had a spectacular ending when the Formula II cars of Charlie Faichney and John Hogg seemed to lock side bumpers during the Grand National.

As a result, the Faichney car rode the main straight wall with the front wheels above the top of the wall and then crashed heavily into the pit gate, writes our Racewall reporter, Jim Turner.

Whilst the car somehow ended up on all four wheels it could have so easily rolled. A spectacular end to an already exciting meeting.

It was a good night to be a Burgoyne, with Lewis winning the first three Formula II races, and Chris the Grand National. Another driver to dominate was Corey Mathers who won all of the Micro F2 races.

The fans certainly enjoyed an action packed meeting in what started out as a sunny evening, but clouded over towards the end.

The new European Formula II Champion, Chris Burgoyne, was in action with his roof sporting the red and yellow chequers. Making his debut was Duncan Welsh, who raced Saloons a few years ago.

After his Victory lap by Burgoyne, with his European trophy, the grid formed with Charlie Faichney leading the field away. By the end of the lap Paul Reid was ahead and stayed there until just after the half distance, when Lewis Burgoyne took over. In the end it was Burgoyne 1-2-3, with Lewis leading home Chris then Steven.

Faichney was again the early leader when heat two started, but when under pressure from Reid, he drifted wide and in a flash L. Burgoyne dived through into the lead.

On the last lap Borthwick was sent into a spin as Bryson went through for his first Racewall, win from K. Gilmour and Shevill Jnr whilst Devine and Z. Gilmour were last lap spinners.

The final was led off by Borthwick, from Russell and Bryson, but soon Hughes had moved into second. Behind, Shevill Jnr was making up ground, and was soon into the top ten. Gary Paterson closed the gap and a couple of laps later took the lead, but ominously had Shevill Jnr filling his mirrors. and a lap later the lead changed hands with McLaughlin taking advantage as Paterson was off line.

John Paton led the field away but on the opening lap James Paton clipped the wall with the car shedding a wheel suspending the race. The field lined up behind John Paton but he quickly lost out to Lauren Ford, although she had Kai Chisholm in close order and they stayed in that order until the end of the race. Gail and John Paton had a spot of synchronised spinning but Gail restarted. In the end Ford led Chisholm home with Joanne Hilditch third.

John Paton was the initial heat two leader but a couple of laps in lost out to Chisholm who slowly extended his lead. Liam Boyle and Colin Ogilvie were involved in a race long dice which got a bit frantic at one time resulting in Boyle spinning. Chisholm went on to win by a clear margin from Boyle and Ford.

Ford led the cars away when final started and drove away from the field. There was a cracking dice behind, with Chisholm, Boyle and Hilditch squabbling over second. Boyle moved to the outside line and it was only on the last lap that he moved ahead.

Ford was first home but penalised two places for starting in the wrong place leaving Boyle the winner from Chisholm and Ford.

Whilst Iona Sibbald led the cars away when heat one started, next time around Jaxson Watters was ahead. He led for a few laps but could do nothing to stop a speedy Corey Mathers, who went through to win. Oakley Grief was the runner up with John Forster in third.
