IT WAS a dismal night at the Cowdenbeath Racewall on Saturday night but despite the conditions the drivers were in good form during the last meeting of the season.

However David Fyffe was in a hefty shunt in the prostox and required assistance out of his car.

In the minis Lisa Freebairn spun and was collected by the oncoming pack and she too needed assistance out of her car.

Paul Reid continued his good form in the formula IIs winning both heats as well as the final but it was Gary Begg who won the lightning rod ORCi championship as well as the Cock of the North trophy. Lindsay Wilson ended a long career when he hung up his helmet after bringing his car home in third place in the ORCi championship.

There was a good turn out of lightning rods for their ORCi championship with local driver in action being Frankie Cunningham (Galashiels).

In heat one Cunnigham brought his car home in fourth place and then seventh in heat two.

Gary Beggs was the start from pole with Gary Nicholls alongside with Cunningham on the inside of row two. Beggs went straight into the lead when the race started and soon had Cunningham challenging and at the close the Borderer finished a couple of car lengths adrift when the chequer fell.

The ministox drivers were as usual in good form with the local driver being Craig Murray (Moffat).

Murray picked up a fourth place in heat one and then in heat two. In a fast final Murray ended up in third spot.

Well that is the season over but there will be a holiday meeting on January 5 when van bangers, minis and prostox will be in action with the usual 1.00pm start.
