An entertaining afternoon of racing in cold but dry conditions brought in 2017 with a bang at Tullyroan Oval on New Years Day. There was impressive action across all five classes on show at the meeting sponsored by Cirrus Plastics of Portadown. Birches star Dave Haugh won the headlining Big Van Bangers Van-dalism event, with other feature race wins going to Aaron McNeilly (Superstox), Willie Stewart (1300 Stock Cars), Paul O'Connor (Rookie Bangers) and Dan Shannon (ProStocks).

The turnout was a little lower than in previous years, but as always the Big Van Bangers didn't fail to entertain! Amongst the Transits was Stevo McGrath's huge Mercedes Campervan, and he duly took on anyone or anything in his path. The opening race was for the Van-dalism title, and McGrath fought a race long battle with Davy Patton in which he almost destroyed his opponents short wheel base Transit. Usual Lightning Rod star Ally Neill set the early pace until he got involved in the drama, which allowed Irish Banger Champion Dave Haugh to go ahead and take the win, with McGrath classed as the only other finisher.
Broken suspension halted the McGrath Merc in the Allcomers, which went the way of Leonard Dunn after an entertaining scrap with Haugh. The last van moving Destruction Derby ended the day, and it was no surprise to see McGrath take victory in this one after smashing Dunn's Transit to pieces on the back straight. Patton took the award for Best Wreck, with McGrath unsurprisingly crowned Entertainer of the Day.

Scottish drivers Barry Stephen, Colin Frame and David Frame joined the local stars to produce three excellent Superstox encounters, the first of which fell to a flying Lee Davison over Aaron McNeilly and David Frame. Gary Grattan and Stephen exchanged some hostile hits which certainly kept the fans on the banks on their toes! Heat two saw Lanarkshire flyer David Frame power through for the victory, relegating McNeilly with just three to go to land the win, with Grattan in third.
McNeilly had been knocking on the door all afternoon with two runner up places in the heats, but he went one better to land the final victory after a very impressive drive indeed. The improving Cyril Hawe led the early laps before McNeilly powered through to the front. Despite Colin Frame's best efforts over the final laps it was to be McNeilly's day, with Scottish duo C Frame and Stephen chasing him home.

The 1300 Stock Cars entertained as the always do, with plenty of bumperwork and close finishes the order of the day. Calvin Blake went ahead just after half way in the opening heat, and held off a last lap assault from Irish Champion Ivan Elliott to take the win. Elliott's car died after the contact on the leader, opening the door for Willie Stewart and Michael Logan to fill out the top three. Jonny Patterson and the Logan held sway out front in the second heat before Willie Stewart sliced through to take the win over Jon McQuillan and Logan.
The final was also action packed, with Patterson the early leader before Blake moved ahead. Despite Calvin's best efforts Stewart was able to move ahead and complete his double for the afternoon. Elliott, Blake and Anthony McIvor filled out the places.

There was high drama in the ProStocks, as William McFaul crossed the line first in all three races but then failed the post final technical checks which led to him being excluded from all results for the afternoon. That handed the opening heat win to returning former European Champion Greg McMullan. Jonny Watson, on his first on track appearance for a number of years, inherited the heat two win in his borrowed car whilst Irish Champion Dan Shannon took home the all important final trophy. One had to feel for McMullan though, as he led the final until just three laps from the finish before being dumped into the wall by the later-to-be-excluded McFaul.

The Rookie Bangers will become a regular fixture at Tullyroan Oval in 2017, and three exciting encounters gave the fans a taster of what to expect. Action aplenty with spins and crashes commonplace was the order of the day, with Dickie King the winner in both heats ahead of Johnny Murray. The final was the best race of the day, with Paul O'Connor hitting the front when it mattered most to take the win over King and Conor Finnegan.

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.
