On Sunday November 25th DMC Race Promotions will stage our first ever Back to Basics Bangers meeting at Tullyroan Oval.

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 entry level 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.

Many thanks to our friends at Spedeworth Motorsports for allowing us to use their rules and format for this meeting.

The first of the annual end of season Irish Championships took place at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer and Coleraine’s Lacey Bevan both earning Irish title victories in the Stock Rods and Ninja Karts respectively. Portadown’s European Champion Jordan Rochford was victorious in the Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey, with the same title falling to Ballymena’s James Goldie in the Thunder Rods. British Champion Dan Shannon raced to a heat and final double in the ProStocks, at the meeting which was kindly sponsored by Ross Hyndman Motors of Londonderry.

Curtis Greer and Stevie McNiece lined up on the front row of the Stock Rods Irish Championship race courtesy of points scored during the season, but they didn’t get far at the first time of asking as the red flags came out for a nasty turn four crash. Samuel Montgomery found the wall on the exit of the turn, coming back across the pack and causing big damage for Philip Wilson amongst others. At the restart Greer assumed control out front, with McNiece trying doggedly to hang on around the outside. Jonny Cardwell and Shane McMillan moved to second and third, with Greer edging clear out front. British Champion McMillan found a way past Cardwell at two thirds distance after a minor slip from Jonny, but despite Shane closing on the leader over the final laps Greer had driven the perfect race to add the Irish title to the National and Scottish Open wins he scooped earlier in the season. McMillan was excellent value in second ahead of Cardwell and Marc Morrell.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a commanding win for Stephen McCready, who powered home ahead of Derek McMillan and Chris Hamill. McCready is sure to be a major player in the formula in 2019, having just joined the ever increasing pack on the DMC Race Promotions raceways.

Max Hobson and Lacey Bevan lined up on the front row for the Ninja Karts Irish Championship decider, with Hobson quickly edging ahead of Lauren Berry. Berry spun and lost ground, elevating Bevan back to second before a caution was called when Ryan Berry spun to a halt on the Brown Trout Bend. During the caution Hobson sensationally retired when his chain came adrift, leaving Bevan to lead them away at the restart. Lacey pulled clear out front as the greens came out, with Lexi Crooks and Rhea McConkey giving chase. Bevan completed the final laps to be crowned Irish Champion, her first major title victory in the formula, with Crooks taking an excellent runner up spot in her first season of racing in the formula. Lauren Berry completed the podium finishers after a spectacular recovery from her early spin, completing an all girls top three for perhaps the first time in UK oval racing. All the young stars received trophies for competing in the event from NI Points Championship sponsors ASC Cars, with grade awards also going to Rhea McConkey, Lauren Berry and Matthew Weir.
Hobson bounced back from his Irish Championship disappointment to take the win in the Irish Revenge race, leading home Brandon Litter and Lauren Berry.

Mark McCambridge held off a spirited challenge from European Champion Jordan Rochford to take the win in the opening Lightning Rods heat, the Glenavy man making his Sierra as wide as he possibly could to thwart Jordan’s attempts to pass. Heat two saw a flag to flag win for World Champion Gordy McKee from pole position, with Tim Hazlett impressing on his way to second with Rochford returning to third to claim pole position for the final.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Rochford immediately hit the front, but a brief shower of rain added to the ingredients in this one. Jordan struggled to make his expected break up front on the slippery track, with Hazlett tracking his every move for a time. McKee found a way past Hazlett just past half distance, but Rochford by now was home and dry to a very polished victory indeed. McKee and Hazlett completed the podium finishers.

An excellent field of Thunder arrived to contest their King of Aghadowey title, with the first reverse grid heat falling to David Wilson who held off Andrew McLean and third placed Jonny Teggart. Heat two saw James Goldie on great form as he breezed home to the win ahead of Lee McCloy and newcomer Glen White. There was a huge battle in the main pack in this one which kept the fans more than entertained.
Aggregate points saw Goldie and McLean share the front row for the final, with Goldie quickly settling into the lead. McCloy was right on his case and he slotted into second, and as the race progressed he began to put the pressure on the leader. Goldie was equal to it all though, and he came home to lift the King of Aghadowey crown with McCloy a gallant runner up ahead of Wilson in third.

The ProStocks completed the programme, with Dylan Booth leading heat one before he dropped out with problems. That handed the lead to William McFaul but he was reeled in and nudged wide on the last bend by British Champion Dan Shannon who took a superb last gasp victory. Booth again led the second heat before he was moved aside by McFaul who took the win over Shannon.
Booth again led the way for much of the final, until McFaul bumped him wide to take up the running. Booth came back and tried to spin McFaul out, the duo embarking on an exciting duel for the rest of the race. Booth went in hard into the final bend to dislodge McFaul from the lead, and sensationally succeeded in taking both wide and opening the door for Shannon to steal through for the win! Booth and McFaul were next home after a truly epic race.

In our latest points update there are latest standings for Lightning Rods & National Hot Rods.

In the Lightning Rods, Jordan Rochford has stretched ahead of Nigel Jackson in the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship as we head towards the end of the season, whilst Jordan also leads the 2019 World Championship qualifying points ahead of Adam McCann and Jackson.

After last weekend's British Championship meeting for the National Hot Rods, Adam Hylands sits aloft the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions points championship but has now unfortunately withdrawn fgrom the formula for the time being. That should open the door for Glenn Bell, Gary Woolsey and Shane Murray to fight for the title with two meetings remaining.

To view the latest points, click on 'Drivers' in the menu bar above, then 'Points & Grades' and then select the desired formula from the drop down menu. All drivers should note that, where applicable, their correct grading colour should be applied as laid down in their formula's Rules & Regulations.

The race meeting scheduled for Aghadowey Oval on Saturday October 6th has been postponed, and will now take place on Saturday November 3rd, The start time and formulas racing at the fixture will remain the same for the rescheduled date. This decision has been taken due to the number of drivers and fans wishing to attend the international meeting at Tipperary Raceway on that weekend.
Racing of course still goes ahead this Saturday, September 29th, at Aghadowey Oval.

In another fixture change, the Thunder Rods will replace the Classic Hot Rods at the meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday October 13th. We feel that the Classic Hot Rods entry may not be what we would hope as it will come just six days after the Irish Grand Prix, the second 2 day meeting for the formula in Ireland within three weeks.

DMC Race Promotions would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes.

Portadown driver Lee Davison was on top of the world at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, when he was roared home by the huge crowd to win the prestigious Superstox Championship of the World! After a tense championship race in front of a packed house, Lee held on to land one of oval racing’s oldest titles ahead of English duo Dan Roots and Mark Smith. The other major title of the weekend was contested on Sunday afternoon, when Portadown’s Adam Hylands took a sensational last gasp victory in the National Hot Rods British Championship. Adam nipped past long time leader Shane Bland on the final lap to take the win in an epic finish. Six formulas entertained across the Speedweekend, which was kindly sponsored by Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares, DRS Steelbuildings and Hoosier Racing Tyres. There was also a celebration of 50 years since the opening race meeting at Shamrock Park, with a great display of memorabilia and demonstrations by cars and drivers of the past.

The atmosphere within the Tullyroan bowl was at fever pitch as thirty three Superstox set off on the rolling laps ahead of the Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares World Final, a race with a pedigree dating right back to 1961. From pole position Lee Davison led them away, chased hard by Norfolk’s British Champion Jason Cooper. Cooper slipped ahead as the race twice went under caution, before he was unceremoniously dumped out of contention by a backmarking Jordan Aylward.
Davison surged back ahead, and was willed home by the huge local crowd who were sensing a home win! Lee completed the final laps to take the chequered flag and the World Championship title in some style, becoming Ulster’s first World winner in the formula since Ian McKnight way back in 1992. Lee celebrated with some fantastic pirouettes in front of a packed Annaghmore Bend, before being greeted by his friends and family amidst some highly emotional scenes. English duo Dan Roots and Mark Smith completed the podium, with Martyn Coles and Nick Roots next up.
Another home win came in the Allcomers heat as Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie drove a superb race to take the win over Martyn Coles, before the 50th Anniversary Final went to Coles after he nudged past Beattie late on.
Sunday’s Superstox action was for the Irish Open Championship, which saw Nick Roots take a lively opening heat before Davison continued his great weekend with victory in heat two. A fantastic opening few laps to the Irish Open final saw Davison ahead of Scotland’s David Frame, before Frame lost out and ended up against the wall. He rejoined and baulked the leader, allowing Cooper to spin Davison out of the premier position. Multi champion Cooper reeled off the laps to add another title to his collection, with Davison recovering for second ahead of Scottish based European Champion Stuart Gilchrist.

The DRS Steelbuildings National Hot Rods British Championship saw an opening heat win for Adam Hylands over Jaimie McCurdy, before European Champion Shane Bland from the Midlands powered home to take the second heat over Glenn Bell in a race blighted by a huge crash for Derek Martin. World and National Champion Billy Wood from Hampshire raced home to the third heat win over local ace Gary Woolsey, the latter having pulled off a great outside line pass on Mark Heatrick.
Hylands and Bland shared the front row for Sunday’s British Final, which was stopped early on for a huge back straight crash which saw a number of cars airborne and badly damaged. At the restart the track was slippery initially after a brief shower, which allowed Bland to get the drive on the outside line ahead of Hylands. Adam tracked Shane’s every move, before Bland pulled clear mid race when Glenn Bell and John Christie latched onto the back of Hylands for second. Hylands broke free again nearing the end, heaping pressure onto Bland as the laps dwindled down. As they took the last lap board Bland dramatically got wrong footed by a backmarker, leaving a gap which Hylands was into in a flash. Shane tried hard to close the door but Hylands was through to the British Championship win, with defending champion Christie and Bell completing the podium.
The 50th Anniversary Race saw a fine win for England’s Chris Crane, before the coveted Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy fell the way of Hylands as he signed off from his National Hot Rod career in fine style. Christie and Bland completed the podium in the event which also doubled as Round 3 of the Cele Services Four Nations Cup, and which saw veteran Norman Woolsey join the back of the grid as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations.

A great influx of visitors swelled the Classic Hot Rods ranks, with the opening heat of the Irish Open Championship on Saturday night seeing a fine win for England’s Gavin Taber ahead of Anthony Morgan and Gary Goodswen. Heat two saw local Annaghmore ace Clive Richardson take the win over Scotland’s Kenny Purdie, which then paired Taber and Richardson on the front row for the Irish Open Final.
At the green flag the front row duo sensationally tangled, taking both out of contention and allowing Goodswen through to the lead. As the laps counted down, Purdie arrived to fight for the lead, succeeding in pulling off an absolutely superb outside pass on Goodswen to land the title in empathic fashion. England’s Goodswen held on for second ahead of Scotland’s Jock Campbell, the latter having just held off a spirited Keith Chesher.
Sunday saw the Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy up for grabs, held in memory of Kenny Purdie’s father who tragically passed away at the corresponding meeting a year ago. Richardson took the opening heat win, passing Sussex driver Hughie Weaver on his way to the win. Heat two was on a wet track with most drivers struggling for grip on slick tyres. Ryan Polley had no such problems, taking a clear win over Gavin Taber and his father Adrian Taber.
From pole position Richardson rocketed away out front in the Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy, but all eyes were on a great battle for second between Gavin Taber, Craig Boyd and Purdie. Purdie was giving it his all to get a trophy in his father’s memorial race, and he produced an epic drive around the outside to not only pip Boyd but Taber too! Richardson meanwhile was well down the road and took a clear and decisive win.

Adam Hylands was doubling up between the National and 2.0 Hot Rods, and he took the win in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Masters heat with a clear win over Mark Madill and a returning Joel Richardson. Heat two saw Gary Wilson dominate in the wet conditions, finishing well clear of a battle for second between Hylands, Richardson and Adam Heatrick.
Hylands got the early break in the Masters final to lead Wilson in greasy conditions. Wilson found a way past Hylands to the lead, but attracted attention from Race Control for the manoeuvre. Hylands fought back past Richardson to challenge Wilson again, getting right alongside before slipping wide and glancing the wall. Wilson took the flag but was docked two places for contact on Hylands earlier in the race, which elevated Richardson to the title win. Hylands took second ahead of a demoted Wilson.

A huge field of Stock Rods on Saturday night, including visitors from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland, necessitated three heats to qualify for the 50th Anniversary Trophy. Heat one fell to Stephen McCready who held off Marc Morrell, before heat two saw an overdue victory for Johny Gillespie who has had some rotten luck of late. The third heat had more close and competitive action and went the way of Micky McFall who just held off Victor McAfee at the flag.
The 50th Anniversary Trophy race saw pole man McCready lose out early on to Greer, who surged ahead with the McMillan brothers, Derek and Shane, chasing hard behind. Derek moved aside to give Shane a go at catching the leader, and that he did as the laps counted down. Shane hauled himself alongside Greer but Curtis had all under control to take the win over Shane McMillan, his brother Derek and McFall.

Completing the Sunday afternoon action were the Lightning Rods, with former World Champion Aaron Stewart and James McKinney sharing the heat wins. The final saw McKinney lead again, only to lose out to a fast charging Adam McCann. McCann was driving a fantastic race, and he took his first ever final win ahead of a closing Jordan Rochford and Nigel Jackson.
