On an action packed evening of racing at Tullyroan Oval, Larne’s William Donnell avoided the chaos around the track to take victory in a well subscribed Rookie Bangers final after a great drive. The other winners at the Bann Hire sponsored event were Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie in the Superstox, Portadown’s Mark Corry in the Lightning Rods and Ballybogey’s Norman Purdy in the Thunder Rods.

A full field of Rookie Bangers was always going to mean action galore, and they kicked off in style as Dylan Connolly went for a huge barrel roll down the home straight on the opening lap! Thankfully he emerged unscathed, and Paul O’Connor blasted ahead on the restart. Amidst the action Paul pulled well clear, only to be spun on the final lap by a backmarker! Such was his lead however, that he quickly corrected himself and still took the flag ahead of William Donnell and Matthew McKinstry. Heat two saw Conor Finegan out front, before his big rival in the local points championship chase, Josh Goligher, eased past to take victory.

The final saw an early stoppage for the second rollover of the night, as Peter McConnell found himself upended on the back straight. McKinstry powered ahead on the restart, before Deano McGrath took over out front. Deano lost out within sight of the flag though, handing the victory and the Bann Hire silverware to Donnell ahead of McKinstry and Ryan Nixon, after Goligher was demoted having jumped the restart. That handed the year long DMC Points championship to Finegan by the slenderest of margins.

Brian Lammey led a healthy field of Superstox away for their first heat, the local photographer holding sway out front until well past half distance. Ethan Dilly and Alan Haugh then had turns out front, but they had no answer to the pace of Steven Haugh who grabbed the win ahead of Lee Davison. Dilly and Alan Haugh again contested the lead in heat two, but this time British Champion Davison was in fine form, and his late charge from the superstar grade netted him the win over David Beattie and Alan Haugh.
The final doubled up as the opening round of the NIOval TV Series, and it turned out to be the race of the night! Alan Haugh and Dilly again contested the early lead, with young star Graham Meek making huge strides towards the front until he unfortunately found himself in the wall. By now the star names were knocking at the door having worked their way through, and into the final few laps it was a three way scrap between Sean Mark, Davison and Irish Champion Kyle Beattie for the honours. They traded hits with the bumpers in an enthralling final few laps, with Beattie ahead when it mattered to take a fantastic win over Davison and Mark.

It was slightly greasy for the opening Lightning Rods heat, with Ronan McNally holding off allcomers to take the win over Aaron Stewart and World Champ Nigel Jackson. Heat two saw an emphatic win for Ricky Shaw after a great drive indeed, with Mark McCambridge and Stewart this time the placemen.
Dylan McCann was the first to show in the final from the yellow grade, with Mark Corry having his best run of the night to go second and chase down the leader. Mark quickly arrived on the tail of the McCann, but he found Dylan a much tougher nut to crack than many would have thought. Quickly the pack had joined them in what was now a huge fight for the lead, until Corry found a gap down the inside of McCann on the back straight. That netted Mark the lead and ultimately the victory, over Martin O’Flaherty, Stewart, Jackson and Stuart Agnew.

The Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup completed the race bill, with Mark McLaughlin taking the opening heat victory over John Goligher, after first over the line Jason Darragh was docked two places for contact. The reversed line up for heat two again saw over twenty cars on track, and saw Norman Purdy quickly assume the top spot to claim the win over Ryan Nixon and Gavin Gamble.
The final saw Purdy on pole, and in just his second meeting back in the fold Norman burst clear to take a fine Challenge Cup win. McLaughlin was a gallant runner up, with Nixon getting the best of a big places battle to take third spot.

Dungannon’s Derek Martin produced a dominant display as he raced to a heat and final double in Round 5 of the Simpson Race Exhausts National Hot Rods World Series NI at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night.
On a crisp, dry evening of high speed racing, Randalstown teenager Sam McNeice claimed victory in the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, whilst the other winners at the AMK Fruit & Veg sponsored event were young Loanends star Jonathan Brown in the 1300 Stock Cars and local Tullyroan driver Allen Cherry in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

An impressive 18 car field came to grid for the opening National Hot Rod heat, including visiting Cork driver Jeff Riordan. Andrew Stewart set the opening pace in his pretty Ginetta, but lost out just after half distance as Ben McKee surged ahead to take the win in his Mercedes. Stewart and Davy McKay filled the top three ahead of Derek Martin in fourth. Sean Dynes and then McKay had turns out front in heat two, before a great drive from Martin brought him onto the tail of the leader with five laps to go. Derek quickly went to McKay’s outside, and a touch between the two into the Tullyroan Bend saw McKay spin out of contention. Martin raced home to take an impressive win over Shane Murray and Adam Hylands.
If Martin was impressive on his way to the heat two victory, he was nothing short of phenomenal in the final! As Dynes led the opening laps, Martin was already scything his way through from the star grade. He blasted ahead on lap ten, and proceeded to pull a huge advantage in a masterful performance. Derek was over half a lap to the good at the chequered flag as he landed another fine haul of points to increase his Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI lead. McKee, Gary Woolsey, Hylands, Murray and Glenn Bell completed the top places in the feature race.

A domestic record of seventeen cars contested the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, with the 10-16 year olds producing some fine racing all evening. Randalstown’s Sam McNeice raced through to take the opening heat win is style despite some pressure from runner up James Stewart and third placed man Jack Morrow. Heat two saw Portadown’s Alex Milligan provide a stern resistance to hang on out front for his first ever race win. Sam Percy piled the pressure on throughout the race, but Milligan kept his nerve to take the flag. Behind Percy, Chelsy Rainey impressed in third ahead of Morrow and McNeice.
McNeice and Morrow shared the front row for the Golden Helmet final, with Sam heading Jack from the first green flag. There was little to choose between them with Morrow just unable to get close enough to mount a serious challenge. There was a great places battle further down the field, before they were all brought up short by a late caution flag when Rainey lost a wheel. At the resumption McNeice surged home to the chequered flag to land the win and the superb Golden Helmet trophy, with Morrow, James Stewart, Callum Magill and Percy rounding out the top six.

The all action 1300 Stock Cars traded blows all evening as they contested the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Matthew Milliken made good his escape to win the opening heat ahead of Jonathan Brown and Jon McQuillan, before Matthew repeated the dose in heat two to take another fine victory, having staved off a last bend do or die attack from Brown.

Milliken got ahead early in the Challenge Cup final as the others all tripped over each other as the bumpers went flying in early on. Brown and McQuillan broke free from the pack and gave chase to the leader, with Brown punting Milliken wide with just a handful of laps to go to claim a great win. The sixteen year old really is making a name for himself in the senior ranks. Robbie Wright stole through late on to grab second ahead of McQuillan and Jonny Patterson.

Another fine field of 2.0 Hot Rods saw a formula debut for Jordan McCann amongst the twenty strong grid. Donegal based rally preparation expert Trevor McConnell led them away in the opening heat on only his second meeting on the ovals, and he held on superbly well until well past half distance. Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer stepped out of the pack to challenge McConnell, Curtis swooping right around the outside to take the win over Allen Cherry and Denver Grattan. McConnell once again led them away in heat two, and again he held sway until well after the half way mark. This time it was Banbridge driver Grattan who surged past to take the lead and the win over Cherry and Greer.

Cherry was the first to break clear of the pack and give chase to McConnell in the AMK sponsored final. Trevor proved a tougher nut to crack this time, but Cherry soon powered clear after a fine outside line pass. There was to be no stopping the local Tullyroan driver, with Allen taking the win just ahead of Greer, Jordan Rochford and Grattan.
