HRP Banger Ramp Preview
27th of April 2018

As per hardieracepromotions.co.uk website -

The first of HRP's two Banger Ramp Rollover events takes place this Saturday night at HRP Lochgelly Raceway and is sure to provide the usual thrills (and most definitely spills) as HRP bring out their big ramp for our brave test pilots!

As well as the Ramp Rollover, there will be a full programme of racing action featuring five great formulas as HRP Lochgelly Raceway returns to domestic action after the incredible Dechmont Forklift Trucks National Hot Rod European Championship Weekend!!!

The 1300 Stock Cars kick off their 2018 Bill Auld Fabrications Trophy Series with the first round this Saturday at HRP Lochgelly Raceway with enhanced prize money on offer in a season that sees unprecedented sponsorship in the formula. Andrew Mathieson scored a hat-trick of wins last time out and the local man will most likely be a prime target for the likes of Craig Haxton and Billy Wilson as they look to get their necks in front in the early stages of the series.

HRP also welcome the Stock Rods back to racing action with the top Scottish drivers in the formula back on track. Despite the presence of the established big names, it was Jordan Wright who took a heat and final winning double last time out. Wright will start from further back as he has been promoted to blue grade but should cope more than adequately from there as the likes of Scottish Champion Jonathan Lattka, National Champion Siobhan Martin and European and British Champion Chris Lattka give chase.

The 2.0 Hot Rods will be back on track after what feels like an eternity and we will once again be able to enjoy the battle of the stars with our Grand Slam Championship drivers racing from the back of the grid in the form of World, Scottish and Points Champion Gordon Alexander and European, British and National Champion William Hardie. Despite their glowing CVs, neither of the champions could hold a candle to Dunfermline's Gerry hendry who took all three race wins last time out - he will have his work cut out to repeat that feat this weekend from red grade!!!

Scotland's best performing formula of the last few years are back at a track that shows them at their best as the Ministox return to HRP Lochgelly Raceway!!! Scott Allardyce was the hat-trick hero last time out and will be enjoying his last weekend from the front of the grid this weekend before the big move to red grade. The likes of Sean Naismith, Michael Mitchell and Danny Whyte will be glad to see the 178 driver starting a bit further back as he has scooped a huge number of wins so far in 2018!!!

The Rookie Bangers round off the five-formula spectacular at HRP Lochgelly raceway this Saturday April 28th and will bring their own brand of metal-munching mayhem to the track ahead of the Ramp Rollover event which will conclude the night's entertainment.

Five great formulas.

Preview - HRP April Speedweekend
18th of April 2018

The first HRP Speed Weekend of the year is here and what a cracker we have in store!!! Two days of racing with an international-class field at Scotland-s premier short oval motorsports venue with the destiny of numerous championships to be decided - it truly doesn’t get any bigger or better than this!!!

HRP Lochgelly Raceway (KY5 9HG) is the venue for this mammoth weekend of racing action and is one of the best appointed race tracks in the UK. With two covered grandstands, Trackside Parking for over 100 vehicles, an indoor café plus a large bar which also houses our Saturday night disco; HRP is the place to be this weekend!!!

The Dechmont Forklift Trucks National Hot Rod European Championship takes pride of place as the headlining act once again on the weekend of April 21st and 22nd and the big question is can defending champion Car Waller-Barrett make it three in a row. If the 162 driver manages to take his third European title in succession, he will become the first driver to do so since the event moved to HRP Lochgelly Raceway.

Waller-Barrett won't have it all his own way as an incredible line-up of elite drivers are set to descend on HRP Lochgelly Raceway to challenge for the red and yellow chequered roof.

Current World Champion and former HRP European Champion Chris Haird will lead that challenge and he will be joined by a star-studded field featuring the likes of Jason Kew, Billy Wood, Kym Weaver and Shane Bland from England.

The entry from across the Irish Sea looks as strong as ever with former multi champions Glenn Bell and Adam Hylands making the trip plus the likes of Shane Murray, Derek Martin and Jaimie McCurdy while Brendan O'Connell and Les Compelli will be representing Tipperary Raceway and the Republic of Ireland.

The Scottish entry also looks good and is headed by Robert McDonald with the likes of Billy Bonnar, Gordon Ogilvie, Steven Armit, Roy Anderson and Ian McGuigan amongst others. We are also delighted to welcome Winnie Holtmanns and his team from Germany once again – always great to see our friends from the continent!!!

The Ninja Karts are also on championship duty with Saturday April 21st seeing the LJN DeSIGNS British Championship being held at HRP Lochgelly Raceway for the first time.

HRP's own Robbie Armit will be defending the title he won at Aldershot Raceway last season and will face tough competition from all corners of the UK!!! Northern Ireland will be represented by Max Hobson and Brandon Litter while Callum Gould, Toby Partridge and Kasey Jones are expected to be among the English contenders.

Arguably, Armit's greatest challenge will come from his fellows Scots with World Cup Champion Charlie Hardie looking to reclaim the title he won in 2016 while Bailey Millar, Josh Bruce and Toby Tyson will all be looking for their first major title. The action seen in the Ninja Karts often causes those watching to forget just how young these drivers are with some as young as 6 years old on the grid. Join us to see the future of short oval motorsport!!!

Over the course of the next week or so, I aim to get this years information built back up, and the main pages within the site operational again.
