The new Back to Basics Bangers were an instant hit at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, fielding a great grid of cars and serving up some excellent action for the big crowd. Limavady driver Josh Goligher went down in history as their first ever winner as he scooped the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, whilst Scotland’s Bailey Millar was the afternoon’s other big winner as he took the Ninja Karts Champion of Champions victory. Other winners in the Stirling Trophies sponsored meeting were Sean Mark (Superstox), Thomas McCrory (Lightning Rods) and Steven Haugh (ProStocks).

Cheap and cheerful racing with a huge fun factor is the name of the game in the Back to Basics Bangers, and a big grid arrived for their first meeting on the DMC Race Promotions circuits. There was a vast range of machinery on track, with usual ProStocks star Steven Haugh racing through the heat one chaos to take the win over Dave Haugh and Dan Shannon. Heat two saw Shannon out front until he got himself into all sorts of bother, opening the door for Josh McKinstry to grab the victory over Steven Haugh and Stefan McClelland.
The final was an exceptional encounter, with Limavady’s Josh Goligher setting his usual non contact skills to one side for the day as he stormed ahead. A stoppage for a fire on Tony Gillespie’s machine brought the field up short, but Goligher raced ahead on the restart and took the win in style over Shannon and Dave Haugh. An excellent Destruction Derby fell to Josh’s father John Goligher, whilst Rocky McKenna was voted Entertainer of the Day.

The first event of the day for the Ninja Karts was the Midway Autopoint Individual Achievement Award for those drivers who hadn’t tasted success in 2018. It fell the way of Rhea McConkey who led Matthew Weir home after a fine drive. The Hollytree Farm Champion of Champions was next up, and it saw Brandon Litter lead early on before defending champion Max Hobson squeezed past to take up the running. Scottish star Bailey Millar then swooped past to hit the front and he duly took the title over Hobson and Lacey Bevan.
The track was very slippery for the heat race, with Toby Tyson from Cumbria showing superb car control to take the win over Millar and Hobson in a race that saw loads of spinners and some fantastic opposite lock driving from the youngsters. The final saw a superb drive from Leyton Hughes, who at just six years old is one of the youngest drivers on the track. He drove a super race to lead right up until the final stages, when he was pipped by Millar who took his second win of the day. Hughes was a very impressive second ahead of Tyson and another English racer, Ellis Snow, who also impressed on his Ulster debut.

Welcome Scottish visitor Trevor Harris led the opening Superstox heat away, as star men Stephen Stewart and Lee Davison tangled which saw Stewart almost pitched into a roll. Sean Mark continued his recent good form by slicing through to the win over Conor Murphy and Aaron McNeilly. Kyle Beattie worked himself ahead in the second heat, but the former Irish Champion was moved aside by Mark who went on to record his second win of the afternoon.
Mark lost time during the final when he tangled with Murphy, but a caution period brought him back into contention. Stewart was out front, and just when it looked as though he had things sewn up he made a rare error into turn one which opened the door for Mark to race past and complete his hat-trick for the afternoon. Stewart and David Beattie completed the podium.

Barry Limer from England joined a very healthy field of Lightning Rods, with Portadown’s Vince Litter the star turn during the heats as he raced to two wins. In the first encounter he led home Thomas McCrory and Adam McCann, before European Champion Jordan Rochford and Ronan McNally chased Vince over the line in heat two.
Litter was upgraded on the grid for the final, leaving McCrory to quickly establish himself out front. The outside line was very treacherous which thwarted the attempts of the star men, but Rochford dragged himself right alongside the leader but he couldn’t quite get ahead. McCrory hung on for an excellent feature race win, his first in the Lightning Rods, with Rochford and Litter filling out the podium places after an excellent afternoon’s racing.

The ProStocks were light in numbers, but served up some watchable racing. European Champion Steven Haugh took the opening heat before David Browne claimed a very notable victory in heat two. Veteran racer Browne took the battle to Haugh again in the final, but despite swapping the lead back and forth it was star man Haugh who claimed his second win of the day.

Our next meeting at Tullyroan Oval is on Sunday 25th November (2pm) featuring our first ever Back to Basics Bangers meeting!

This really is what it says on the tin - Back To Basics - with cars running 'on the key', dashboards can be left in, no additional welding permitted and bonnets and boots etc can only be tied with seat belt to secure. For this event only under 1800c petrol cars and under 2000cc non-turbo diesel cars can be used. The Ford Focus and Mondeo or any Honda powered cars are not permitted.

This formula is designed as the fun Banger class ideal for those just starting out or those drivers who want to race with a limited budget. This could well be the meeting to get YOU off the terraces and onto the track!!

The format has really taken off on the Spedeworth raceways in England, and will hopefully inject some interest into the local Banger scene and bring some new blood on board. Interest in this meeting is already high - please see the full specs on the link below.

There will be prizes on offer for race wins and entertainers throughout the meeting! To book in, contact us with your name and race number on

There are also plans for another Back to Basics meeting at Aghadowey Oval on Boxing Day - watch this space!

Ballymena’s Adam McFall was the toast of Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening when he was crowned Junior Productions Irish Champion after a closely contested event. The other major event on the schedule was the Superstox King of Aghadowey, which fell the way of Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie. Other feature race winners at the LJN Designs sponsored meeting were Michael Woods (2.0 Hot Rods), Josh Goligher (Thunder Rods) and Joe Largey (ProStocks).

At the start of the biggest domestic event of the year for the Junior Productions, the Irish Championship, polesitter Sam McNeice moved ahead with Graham Meek challenging behind. Meek dived for a gap which disappeared, the resultant contact knocking the leader wide and right back out of contention. Meek went through to the front and pulled clear, with some huge battles raging behind involving Matthew Nicholl, Drew McKeown, Mark Crawford and Adam McFall. As Meek took the flag, McFall got the better of the rest of the places battle, and he duly inherited the championship win when Meek was docked by the Race Stewards for his earlier move on McNeice. Adam thus added the Irish Championship crown to the Irish Open title he secured back in August. Callum Magill took second in the final analysis after a great drive from down the grid, with Meek having to make do with third.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a very nasty incident between Nicholl and McKeown which saw Drew loaded up from the meeting was his indiscretion, as Aaron Ward fought a super rearguard action to hold off Magill and Adam Weir at the flag. The meeting final for The Young Trophy saw another excellent race which saw McFall take his second trophy of the night ahead of McNeice and Crawford.

World Champion Lee Davison took a great win in the opening Superstox heat over Kyle Beattie and Stephen Stewart, before Beattie went one better in heat two after some excellent action amongst the pack. Stewart and Davison filled the places in that one.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Beattie and Davison share the front row, with Davison losing ground at the start which allowed Beattie to pull clear. Davison found a way back through to second, but it wasn’t enough to get close enough to challenge Beattie for the win. Kyle raced home to a well deserved victory over Davison and Stewart.

Novice grader Michael Woods pulled clear in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, driving superbly to keep the rest at arm’s length all the way home to the flag and a morale boosting win. Conor Hughes and Allen Cherry took second and third respectively after finding a way past Thomas Morrison late on. Former Lightning Rods World Champion Scott Cochrane, on his debut meeting in the formula, earned himself an early disqualification in heat two for spinning Cherry, with the yellows coming out for Gary O’Neill stranded out by the wall. Up front Thomas Dilly relegated Woods with a superb switchback move to take a deserved victory, whilst Cherry produced a simply superb recovery drive to second after his spin, albeit with the help of the caution flag.
The final saw a huge battle amongst the pack for the places as a returning Davy Potter held off allcomers for some time, but that only allowed Woods to pull easily clear to take his second victory of the meeting. It was a superb night for the young driver in his first full season of racing, with Cochrane and Dilly filling out the podium places.

Former Irish Champion Del McLaughlin turned back the clock by taking the heat one victory in the Thunder Rods as he made a welcome return to the formula. James Goldie had been first over the line but he fell foul of the Stewards for contact earlier in the race. McLaughlin thus took the win over Brian Edgar and the demoted Goldie. Heat two was all about Josh McMullan, and he raced home in his unusual Peugeot ahead of Josh Goligher and Mark McLaughlin.
Goligher was the man to watch in the feature race final, quickly relieving newcomer Jameson Tweed of the lead and powering home to a fine victory. Chrissy Dempsey kept him honest all the way to the flag in second, with Jonny Teggart completing the podium finishers.

A low entry of ProStocks completed the programme, with David McKinnon setting the pace in the opener before European and Irish Champion Steven Haugh powered past to take the win. Heat two saw Haugh and McKinnon clash as Dylan Booth took the victory.
Joe Largey came from the star grade to lead the final, but as he went ahead Booth fired him into the McKinnon car which was already parked in the turn one wall. It was pure drama as Largey was able to extract himself from the melee to complete the distance and lift the trophy.
