Neil Maclennan completed a straight-forward lights-to-flag performance to win the opening race of the weekend at Knockhill, beating Scottish FF1600 points leader Jordan Gronkowski.
The Kevin Mills Racing driver got a clean getaway from pole position and was unchallenged throughout en route to a 7.647s win.
Gronkowski took maximum Scottish points with second on the road, after coming out on top in an epic race-long battle with Maclennan’s team-mate Michael Macpherson and the Ray of Neil Broome.
Broome got the better of Macpherson in the closing stages to claim third overall and second in Scottish.
At the start, Gronkowski got off the line well initially, but lost second place as Macpherson swept round the outside of Duffus to make it a KMR one-two.
Macpherson looked to have broken clear of an increasingly tight squabble for third between Grokowski and Broome, but the pair reeled in the Spectrum just after half-distance.
Gronkowski then sent his Van Diemen down the inside of Macpherson at the Hairpin to take second while Broome squeezed past for third under braking for Clark’s on the penultimate lap.
Behind Macpherson, Matt Chisholm brought his Van Diemen home a lonely fourth, beating Kenny Cowie’s Rotor Racing Mygale and the first of the GBR Rays of Logan Hannah.
Steve Barlow finished seventh after losing out to both Cowie and Hannah in an entertaining three-car battle for sixth, while series debutant Glenn Alcock finished a lap down on his first outing with Cloan Motorsport.
