Ipswich Spedeweekend 2016 will go down as one of the most successful ever for DMC Race Promotions after some outstanding achievements by our drivers at the biggest oval weekend of the year at Foxhall Stadium.

Crumlin's Adam Maxwell was the biggest winner, landing the flagship National Hot Rods Championship of the World title. After taking pole position with a stunning lap during Saturday qualifying, Adam led the 35 car field away with Derek Martin alongside. Adam quickly settled into the lead, but was never out of Shane Murphy's reach as he was forced to soak up immense pressure. Murphy then crashed out as the duo clashed whilst amongst backmarking traffic. That opened the way for Maxwell to cruise to a universally popular win leading to some jubilant scenes after the flag following a faultless weekend from Adam. Republic of Ireland driver David Casey finished second with England Carl Waller-Barrett in third.

There was another World Championship victory in the Lightning Rods, this time for Ballycarry's Gary Beggs. Two fiercely competitive qualifying heats saw Beggs sitting nicely on row two for the World Final, with regular DMC visitor Ben Furness setting the pace. Aghadowey's Richard Stewart was looking in fine fettle and showing great speed, and when Furness lost out in traffic Stewart powered ahead in a DMC one-two. Beggs closed right up over the closing laps, and when the unfortunate Stewart cruelly clashed with a tail-ender nearing the finish, Gary grasped his opportunity with both hands to steal through and land the gold after the most sensational of races. Gary even broke into a chorus of the 'Ulster Boys Making All The Noise' in his post race interview, which went down a storm with the travelling fans!

The dust had barely settled on Beggs' Lightning Rod victory when Derek McMillan lined up on pole position for the Stock Rods European Championship after two excellent runs during Saturday's qualifying heats. He led the big field away, and held on from flag to flag despite some late pressure from Scottish star Siobhan Martin. Yet another controlled and mature drive from the young Kells ace netted him the red and yellow chequers of European Champion to add to the National Championship title he already holds.

Annaghmore's Clive Richardson started the ball rolling on Saturday with our first big win, racing off the front row to land the Classic Hot Rods National Championship in some style. He qualified his Leslie Dallas replica Mk2 Escort on the front row alongside Dave Owen and quickly established a lead he wouldn't lose all the way to the flag.

There were other notable drives over the weekend too, with a fantastic 2.0 Hot Rods World final seeing Joel Richardson, Wayne Woolsey and Shane Murray all battling for the premier places throughout. Ultimately it was England's Dan smith who took a popular win, with Richardson in second ahead of Scotland's Gordon Alexander and Woolsey, who was docked having crossed the line in second. In the Ninja Karts Stewart Hanna had two great races finishing second and fourth, with Callum Magill also carding a fourth place finish. Curtis Greer impressed in the 1300 Stock Cars whilst Lee Davison also ran well in the Superstox.

There was another notable result over the weekend too, with Ballymoney's Ian Bolton carding a creditable fourth place in the Reliant Robins World Final at Mildenhall.

Everyone at DMC Race Promotions would like to congratulate all our drivers who made the trip and flew the DMC Race Promotions flag in such style.

A fine mid-summers evening saw plenty of top quality racing on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday. Antrim's Stephen McCready left the circuit as winner of the ProStocks Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with the night's other big event, the National Bangers King of Krash, falling to Dublin's Stevo McGrath. Other feature race winners at the Vault Bistro of Tandragee-sponsored meeting were Aaron Rainey (1300 Stock Cars), David Wilson (Thunder Rods) and Stewart Hanna (Ninja Karts).

A public draw determined the grid for the opening heat of the ProStocks, which was reversed for heat two with the highest aggregate scorer netting pole position for the final. Evan Monaghan led away the opening heat before being demoted by Robbie Wright, but it was Irish Champion Dan Shannon who burst ahead on half distance to take it up. A caution period after big damage for Del McLaughlin on the home straight closed the grid up, but Shannon was quickly back up to pace and took a clear win over Stephen McCready and Robbie Wright. Heat two saw McLaughlin hell bent on revenge on Jordan McCann after his heat one troubles, and he managed to damage both cars heavily once again, bringing out the caution flags to rescue them from the Annaghmore Bend. McCready led this one from flag to flag, with Shannon a good second ahead of William McFaul in third.
With identical heat results McCready and Shannon tossed a coin for pole position in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Stephen getting the nod and edging ahead early on. Shannon dropped to third initially, but once he had dealt with McFaul he began to reel in the leader. McCready had all in hand though, and kept Shannon easily at bay all the way home to the chequered flag and the silverware. Shannon and Stephen Boyd completed the top three, the latter after bumpering his way past McFaul late on.

A depleted field of 2L National Bangers still put on a thrilling show, with Steven Reynolds setting the early pace in the King of Krash title race over fellow Dubliner Stevo McGrath. McGrath was tracking the leaders every move but couldn't get quite close enough to land a telling blow. That was until they encountered a backmarking posse in the back straight, with Reynolds getting wrong footed in the melee and allowing McGrath to steal through. Stevo held on to take the win over Reynolds and local driver Jonny Murdock.
The Allcomers saw some more great action, with Rod Herron seeming to be on the receiving end of a lot of abuse from his fellow drivers. Reynolds took the win over Paul Compelli, with third man Murdock being fired into the wall after the chequered flag by McGrath. An excellent if lengthy DD saw it boil down to a fight between Reynolds and welcome Scottish visitor Frank Boardman. Both were in excellent form and taking all manner of hits, but it was Reynolds who outlasted the tartan visitor to take the win. Paul Gaffney won the Entertainer of the Day award, with Best Wreck falling to Herron.

Teenager Jack Kearney led the exciting 1300 Stock Cars away in their opening heat, holding on out front until lap seven when Aaron Rainey went ahead from the blue grade. Rainey had Peter Greer filling his mirrors though, and on the final bend Greer went in with the bumper in a classic stock car manoeuvre to nab the win by a hairs breadth. Kearney and Rainey both had turns out front in the second race of the evening, but this time it was Anthony McIvor who steered himself by to land the win ahead of Rainey and Greer.
Kearney had a very handsome lead early in the final, but Rainey was able to run him down and slip head. Peter Greer and his namesake Curtis chased hard after moving through to second and third, but the laps ran out for them, leaving Rainey to take a well deserved victory. Curtis Greer went for the kill on the final bend, spinning Peter out and only succeeding in allowing Kearney back past to a hard earned second. Curtis Greer took third ahead of Peter G, the latter coming back across the track at the chequers as he recovered from his spin, collecting the rest of the field as he did so.

Another excellent entry of young Ninja Kart racers produced three superb races, with Josh Henderson setting the early pace in the opener before losing out to a fast moving Sam Percy. As Percy took the win, Lily Gallagher and Corey Stirling filled out the top three spots. Brandon Litter had one of his best races to date in the second heat, holding on out front until a stoppage when Lacey Bevan spun. Litter held on at the restart, but had no answer when Gallagher superbly feinted outside and then dived under the leader to take a fantastic victory over Jack Morrow and Percy.
Litter again led the early exchanges of the final before a stoppage for the stranded Jay Clyde. After the restart Morrow soon zipped ahead, but as he went wide around a backmarker Stewart Hanna found a gap down the inside to take it up. Hanna raced home to the win in fine style, with Morrow and Gallagher filling the podium. The 0-60 Personal Fitness sponsored Most Improved Driver award went to Curtis McConkey.

A rare Tullyroan Oval outing for the Thunder Rods saw three closely fought contests, with Ryan Campbell showing the others a clean pair of heels to in their opener ahead of a fast charging Jonny Gillespie and David Wilson. Campbell repeated the dose to take another win in the second heat, with Wilson netting second after a sublime outside line charge past Norman Purdy in the closing stages.
With Campbell automatically promoted to the blue grade for the final it was certain to shuffle things up, with Josh Goligher the early leader. Gillespie caught him as the lap boards approached, and then tried to bundle his way past on the inside. Wilson seized his opportunity with a great outside line move to pass them both and race home to the Vault Bistro sponsored trophy. Gillespie crossed the line second but was docked two places for contact on Goligher, handing second to Sam Montgomery ahead of Campbell in third.

DMC Race Promotions in association with Spedeworth Motorsports would like to congratulate Shane Murray on a fantastic victory in the National Hot Rods Thunder 500 at Ipswich last weekend.

Shane performed well during the heats, carding a win and a seventh, to qualify on the outside of the second row for the final. Having been edged to the wall at the start and dropping back down the order, Shane produced a superb comeback to get himself right back into contention. A sublime outside line pass on leader Billy Wood helped on his way to his first ever international victory in the Nationals class.

Shane's attentions now switch to the 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship, again at Ipswich, at the start of July, before he focuses once again on the National Hot Rod for the remainder of the season.
