Aghadowey driver Aaron Stewart took the biggest win of his career last Saturday night at Foxhall Stadium in Ipswich when he was crowned 2017 Lightning Rods Champion of the World!

With a large, high quality field on hand, qualifying was always going to be crucial and Aaron opened up with a 14th place from the rear of the grid, before winning the reverse grid second heat. That landed him on the coveted pole position for the Championship of the World Final, and he made no mistake early on as he carved out a comfortable lead. Nearing the end however a crash amongst the backmarking runners caused Aaron to lose time, with Ben Murray from England closing onto his tail. Aaron still had matters under control until Murray illegally barged his way past to take the flag. The Stewards intervened, handing Murray a two place demotion and rightfully handing Aaron the World Championship crown.

There was more success for the DMC drivers at Ipswich, this time in the Ninja Karts as Portadown's Daniel Stewart took victory in the Stars of the Future race on what is the biggest stage of them all! Daniel made a steady start and then swooped past into a lead he held all the way home to the flag for a deserved win indeed.
There was another Ulster victory when John Christie went around the outside to win the National Hot Rods Nick Thomas Memorial Trophy, whilst Adam Hylands was victorious in both the Wildcard Final and The Betfred Trophy. Other notable results were Adam Best's runner up slot in the 2.0 Hot Rods National Championship and Bobbie Johnston's third place finish in the Stock Rods European.

DMC Race Promotions would like to congratulate all our winners, and all the other drivers who represented the promotion so well at the Spedeweekend.

Coleraine driver Adam White took the biggest win of his career to date on Saturday night at Cowdenbeath, when he was crowned 2017 ProStocks British Champion.

A nine strong Ulster army made the trip across the Irish Sea, and they dominated the meeting from start to finish. White came home for victory in heat one ahead of Stephen Boyd and Del McLaughlin, before Greg McMullan headed home White and Boyd in the second heat.

A frantic final saw defending champion Steven Haugh go out early on, as his chances of a hat-trick of British titles disappeared. Boyd and Irish Champion Dan Shannon were casualties too, but White kept his head to race home to the British Championship crown in superb style, ahead of Karl Smyth and McMullan for an all-DMC Race Promotions top three.

Many congratulations to Adam from everyone at DMC Race Promotions, and to Karl and Greg as well, on their great results.

An entertaining evening of stock car racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday saw three new Kings of Aghadowey crowned after fifteen hard fought races. Donemana's Leonard Dunn took victory in the Micro National Bangers, Banbridge ace Denver Grattan was victorious in the Superstox and Nutts Corner's Adrian McKinstry took an excellent 1300 Stock Car crown. In the Junior Productions Portadown's Drew McKeown landed yet another title with victory in The Young Trophy, whilst Ballycastle's Andrew McLean was the winner in the Thunder Rods.

The Nissan Micra was the main weapon of choice on the grid for the Micro Bangers King of Aghadowey. The action came thick and fast right from the off, with stoppages when Craig Nichol and then William Bingham got themselves into trouble after some monster hits. There was also a rollover for David Wilson, whilst Leonard Dunn managed to relieve Steven Bolton of the lead to take the King of Aghadowey victory. Behind Bolton, Stevo McGrath took third ahead of Willy Ogilby, the latter of whom had spent most of the race destroying anything in his path.
The Allcomers race started in even more spectacular fashion, with a tremendous double rollover for both Deano McGrath and Ogilby on the home straight. Once again there was a great fight for the lead between Dunn and Bolton, as the reds came out again when newcomer Leslie Millar got obliterated by Stevo McGrath by the pit gate. Up front Dunn held on for his second win of the day over Bolton and S. McGrath. A fantastic DD saw yet another rollover, this time for Bolton which ruled him out of contention. It boiled down to a three way fight between S. McGrath, Dunn and Matthew McKinstry. Dunn and McGrath had a cracking head on, before McKinstry piled in to finish McGrath off. But it killed Matthew's car too, and Dunn drove away to take his third win of the day to complete a clean sweep. S McGrath's consolation was the Best Wreck Trophy, whilst Ogilby quite rightly earned the Entertainer of the Day Award.

The Superstox saw a welcome return to action for Gary Grattan, and it was his brother Denver who took the opening heat win. Lee Johnston saw his big early lead wiped out by a yellow caution period for Aaron McNeilly in the wall. A the restart there was plenty of bumperwork between the Grattan brothers, Lee Davison and Conor Murphy, with Denver Grattan breaking clear to challenge Johnston. Denver went in with a timely last bend hit to take the win in some style, breaking the lap record as he went. Johnston made amends in heat two, taking the win ahead of Adam Lockhart and impressive recent newcomer James Logan.
Johnston had pole position for the King of Aghadowey final, and they lined up with the track still damp after a brief shower. 'Jonto' through it all away though by spinning off at the green flag, with Denver Grattan going ahead from Gary Chambers, Gary Grattan and Davison. Try as he may Chambers just couldn't quite get close enough to launch an attack for the lead, but he did keep Denver honest all the way home as the Irish Champion added yet another title to his collection. Chambers was a gallant runner up with Stephen Stewart inheriting third after Davison and Gary Grattan collided towards the end.

There was controversy in the opening heat for the rough and tumble 1300 Stock Cars, when on the road winner Aaron Rainey was docked two places for jumping the start. Michael Logan had deposed Jonny Patterson to go second, but Patterson came back hard on the last bend to nudge past and take a very pleasing win after Rainey's penalty kicked in. Jack Kearney and Patterson battled out front early in heat two, before Calvin Blake powered past to take a deserved victory ahead of Thomas McCrory and Rainey.
Rainey had annexed pole spot for the King of Aghadowey final, but many were caught on the wrong set-up as the rain started just as they came to grid. The opening lap was dramatic to say the least, with the bumpers exchanged in no uncertain terms. Adrian McKinstry tangled with Rainey and found himself headlong into the wall on the home straight as Michael Logan led ahead of McCrory. McCrory challenged and hit the front, but all the time McKinstry was putting in a stunning recovery drive through the field. He landed on the leaders bumper on the final lap, and duly went ahead to take an outstanding, if somewhat unlikely at one stage, victory. McCrory and Logan filled out the podium.

Up for grabs for the Junior Productions was The Young Trophy, kindly presented each year by the Young and Hosie families. A great battle between the star graders was a feature of the opening heat, but Gareth Halliday was oblivious to that as he powered away to a great win over Adam Weir and Adam McFall. Matthew Nicholl led most of the way in heat two until a badly judged move by Halliday ruined both their chances late on and gifted the win to Weir.
Weir led the final away, but lost out to Halliday who quickly went ahead. Gareth soon had his mirrors full of Drew McKeown though, and he found a way past to take up the running with Graham Meek in tow. Despite some gallant efforts by Meek on the outside line, McKeown had all under control and took the superb Young Trophy over Meek and Nicholl. Halliday and Callum Magill were proud recipients of the grade awards for top white and yellow grade finishers.

The Thunder Rods rounded out the programme, with Davy Wilson the man to beat during the heats. He stormed past leader Chrissy Dempsey on the last lap to take the opener, before scything past Andrew McLean to make it a double with the heat two win as well. That elevated him to the star grade for the final, which saw Dempsey the early leader before McLean went ahead. Wilson was on a charge once again though, but despite making it through to second, the victory and the win went to McLean who had driven a very solid race out front. Wilson was a gallant runner up but just couldn't close the gap to the winner, with Jason Darragh in third.
