A very healthy Boxing Day crowd at Aghadowey Oval enjoyed some terrific racing and a memorable Caravan Destruction Derby. Portadown's John Stewart took the honours in the Reliant Robins Irish Championship, with other feature race wins at the Autoworx of Ballymoney sponsored meeting falling to Ben McCully (Stock Rods), Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Gareth Robinson (Thunder Rods) and Daniel Stewart (Ninja Karts). Former National Bangers star Brian Johnston took victory in the entertaining Caravan Derby.

The Reliant Robins Irish Championship started in dramatic fashion when Haley Bevan went for a big roll before they had even reached the green flag! Haley is made of stern stuff and duly took her place for the full restart. From pole position John Stewart stamped his authority on the event, charging clear and on to his second Irish title. Ian Bolton and Steven Bolton filled the podium after an entertaining event. Later in the day Ian Bolton took the honours in the Irish Revenge race ahead of Stewart, as Steven Bolton attempted all he could to demolish his car, losing the roof and then finishing off with a rollover.

A very healthy field of sixteen Stock Rods arrived to do battle, with Jonny Gillespie setting the pace for much of the distance in heat one. Veteran Ballymena star Victor McAfee was looking in fine fettle though, and he slipped past nearing the end to take a well deserved victory over European Champion Derek McMillan and Ben McCully. Another Ballymena driver, Chris Gordon, was the star of heat two as the former World Champion relegated early leader Ryan Murphy to take the win over McCully and Curtis Greer.
The final proved to be the race of the day, with Murphy setting the early pace before McCully and Gordon charged past. McMillan and McAfee were soon closing in too, and with just one lap to go Gordon hit the wide outside to try and wrestle the lead from McCully. Down the back straight for the final time he was right alongside he leader, and only just lost out on the line by a mere 0.06 seconds! McCully therefore took a very deserved victory after a fine drive, with Gordon and McMillan filling the top three.

As always the Lightning Rods produced three keenly contested events, with Scott Cochrane getting the nod in the opening heat after Jordan Rochford had led most of the distance. After Chris McGirr had topped the early exchanges of heat two, it was Ricky Shaw who moved ahead and took the win to continue his decent recent run of form. Aaron Stewart and Rochford filled the top three.
Martin O'Donovan and then Ally Neill headed the leaderboard in the final, with Rochford quickly on to their tails. Jordan went ahead, only for Neill to audaciously nip back past him again! Rochford soon put things right and pulled clear, only for a late caution when O'Donovan spun off. There were some doubts about Rochford continuing with a suspected oil leak, but the track staff gave him the go ahead and he powered home to the victory, the first for a Zetec powered Lightning Rod in Ulster. Neil and Stewart chased Jordan over the line.

The Thunder Rods were on fine form as usual, with newcomer Gareth Robinson taking the opening heat win in convincing style ahead of Dylan Booth and Noel Watt. Novice Watt inherited the victory in the second heat when on the road winner Booth was docked for contact. Roger Glass took second when third man over the line Lee McCloy also fell foul of the stewards.
Watt led the opening laps of the final before Robinson showed his class to move through to the front. He never put a foot wrong the whole way home to take a very tidy victory indeed, with Booth and McCloy next across the line.

The young starlets in the Ninja Karts were joined by Scotland's Scott Allardyce for the afternoon, with Bobby Henderson the star of the opening heat to take a great win from the blue grade ahead of Irish Champion Stewart Hanna and Daniel Stewart who had led for much of the distance. Heat two was all about Stewart, with Daniel racing past early leader Lacey Bevan to take a great win over Jay Clyde and Aaron Ward.
The final was a superb race, with Stewart aiming for his second win of the day and racing into an early lead. Clyde, Henderson and Allardyce closed right in nearing the end, but Daniel was equal to anything they could throw at him and he stayed ahead to take the chequered flag in some style. Clyde took second in his last ever race in the formula as he hits the upper age limit, with Henderson and Allardyce next up.

Nine cars and caravans took to the circuit for the annual Boxing Day Caravan Destruction Derby, and they well and truly entertained the big crowd as they destroyed each other all around the circuit. At one stage we unbelievably even had a car inside a caravan! Through the chaos came Brian Johnston to win the trophy as last car running.
