Latest News
The ORCi held a further video conference on Friday 22nd May to update the current situation and review government advice with regards our own sport.

We have been in communication with Government departments and individual EHO/HSE authorities around the UK on best practice to enable some venues to re open. The government’s latest advice for an easing of restrictions came into effect on Wednesday 13th May however offered little clarity and some ambiguity with regards our own sport so such guidance has been sought.

Subject to a further government announcement on the 1st June 2020, providing that there is no adverse advice, ORCi promoters individually will release provisional venues and dates for practice type sessions effective 2nd June 2020 onwards. The decision to operate practice / private hire sessions will be an individual decision based upon viability and/or any local enforcement advice, together with further considerations to include the availability of event officials, the effect on the government’s scheme for furloughed employees, and the overriding concern of ensuring a safe environment.

The ORCi is working with HSE consultants to produce robust Covid 19 Risk Assessments which will require strict adherence from participants staff and limited attendees and conditions to comply with government guidelines to keep all safe and best practice.

These will be published in advance via orci.co.uk before a limited resumption of activities.

At this juncture, the ORCi cannot offer any further guidance as to when race events may resume with or without restrictions, however, there may be further clarification after the next Government announcement on 1st June which will be reviewed at a further scheduled meeting later that week.

Scotland, currently cannot yet advise a date for any resumption as the devolved government is operating slightly different 'lockdown' and easing of restrictions and further advice on that will be provided as and when further information is made available by the Scottish government. The contents of this statement remain provisional and subject to what the government releases on 1st June. Should guidance change on 1st June, ORCi will release a further statement following that.

Stay Alert and Keep Safe,

Steve Rees
Chairman
For / and on behalf ORCi

Please see below an updated statement from the ORCi regarding the current Coronavirus situation.

Added: 08/05/20

Due to the coronavirus situation, all racing at DMC Race Promotions has been suspended until further notice.

Please Stay Safe

The UK Government has issued further guidance to event organisers with a recommendation that people should not attend pubs, theatres and large gatherings and to protect the NHS, frontline services are unable to support such events due to the resources required by the emergency services.

Scotland earlier advised that all gatherings attended by 500 people or more should not take place effective from 16th March.

Having reviewed this information the ORCi have heeded the request from the Government for businesses to act responsibly, and, as such have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend future race meetings at ORCI venues until such time as guidance from the Government changes.

Whilst we recognise the news will be disappointing for race fans and drivers alike, our highest priority must be to ensure the safety of all who attend our events, and protect the resilience of the UK’s public services – especially the emergency services and the NHS – as strongly advised to by the Government. To ignore this advice would be deeply irresponsible given the current circumstances.

Whilst ORCi venues employ their own paramedic, first aid and safety steward team, including private ambulances, we all know that motorsport can be dangerous, and incidents can and do happen which require the attendance of the emergency services. It is impossible for any ORCi venue to legislate against the need to call on the assistance of the emergency services for either an on-track/in stadia incident, and as such we are unable to guarantee that we could proceed without making any call on the services which this government guidance seeks to protect.

As the ORCi we will of course continue to keep our race fans, race teams and individual promotions will keep team members informed of when we plan on resuming the fixture calendar for 2020 and will do this as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to continue to follow the advice of the relevant authorities to ensure the well-being of themselves, their family’s and local communities, whilst sending a strong message of support to the health professionals and members of our emergency services and other key workers who are working so hard for our benefit during this period.

The season opening meeting at Tullyroan Oval saw an excellent turnout of competitors, with meeting sponsor Thomas Dilly of Portadown-based DRS Steelbuildings taking a polished heat and final double in the National Hot Rods division. Ballymena’s Jonny McMillan came out on top of a well subscribed 2.0 Hot Rods field with a clear final victory, whilst the other feature race winners were Tam Agnew (Lightning Rods), Paddy Murphy (Superstox) and Sam McNeice (Junior Productions).

The seventh round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods got off to the worst possible start, with a big crash for the new car of John Christie during the warm up laps for heat one. That ruled him out for the evening unfortunately, with Thomas Dilly taking victory after a scrap with Simon Kennedy. Kennedy looked all set to grab the heat two honours until he clipped a spinning Jaimie McCurdy, putting him out on the spot. Gary Woolsey picked up the pieces to grab the win over Glenn Bell and Dilly.
By final time we had one dry line available, which made overtaking nigh on impossible. Dilly led them off but soon had Woolsey, Shane Murray, Bell and the rest queued up behind. The pressure on Thomas was immense, but he held his nerve to take the victory over Woolsey and Murray.

A very healthy field of 2.0 Hot Rods took to the track, with Ryan McClure and Ryan McCrory battling hard at the front of the field. McClure took the flag but was then excluded from the remainder of the meeting following a tyre logging error. That handed the win to McCrory over Denver Grattan and Stephen Emerson, with Irish Champion Adam Best then coming through to win an untidy second heat over Michael Woods.
Colin McFarland led the initial laps of the final, but Jonny McMillan soon powered past in his Tigra to take a huge lead. A loose wheel on the raceway brought the caution flags out with just one lap remaining, but Jonny rode out the one lap shootout to grab the silverware ahead of McCrory and Emerson.

Stuart Agnew made his debut in the Lightning Rods and very quickly settled into the groove, reeling off two heat wins in some style. In heat one he held off World Champion Nigel Jackson before coming home clear of Aaron Brunton in heat two. An upgrade for Stuart before the final was always going to make things much more difficult, but his brother Tam stepped forward to land the silverware and complete a family clean sweep for the night. James McKinney made Tam work hard for his win, coming home a close second ahead of Richard Stewart.

Ed Davis kicked off his Superstox season in style with victory in the opening heat, just about holding on despite Irish Champion Kyle Beattie’s last corner lunge with the bumper. Heat two saw a clear win for Steven Haugh from the front of the grid with Beattie once again in second. Haugh again impressed in the final, pulling clear only to be left heartbroken when he picked up a puncture with less than two laps remaining. Paddy Murphy sensationally took over to snatch a last gasp victory over Beattie and Davis.

An encouraging field of young Junior Production drivers took to the track, with Abbie McKinstry driving superbly to land an excellent win in the opening heat ahead of Alex Milligan. Matthew Weir impressed in heat two, leading for much of the distance before losing out to a great outside run from Sam Percy. Callum Magill took a deserved second at the line.
Weir again had a great run in the final, but he lost the lead just past the halfway mark as Sam McNeice stormed through to take the feature race win over Percy and Magill.
