The horrendous track conditions at a very wet Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night didn’t dampen the action on track, as the drivers put on some tremendous racing on a treacherous raceway. Nigel Jackson successfully defended his Lightning Rods Irish Championship title after a sterling drive, whilst fellow Portadown star Glenn Bell guided his National Hot Rod to a successful defence of his Ulster Championship crown. Dublin’s Gary Butler took victory in the Grand Final of the Stock Rods PC Paints & Components Challenge Series which had its fair share of talking points, whilst the other feature race wins during the Hankook Performance Tyres sponsored meeting fell to Denver Grattan in the 2.0 Hot Rods and fellow Banbridge driver Jonny Teggart in the Thunder Rods.

There was an explosive start to the Lightning Rods Irish Championship race, as polesitter Jordan Rochford ran wide into turn one on the sodden track taking fellow front row starter Nigel Jackson with him. That opened the door for Tim Hazlett to hit the front ahead of Mark Corry, with Jackson settling into third spot. Nigel quickly dealt with Corry, before running down leader Hazlett. Jackson always excels in the slippery conditions, and he swooped right past Hazlett to hit the front of the title race. A mid race caution when Aaron Stewart’s engine expired in a huge way didn’t stop Jackson’s run to the title win, Nigel taking the flag in style to record yet another Irish Championship triumph. Richard Stewart managed to get past Hazlett for second having started well down the grid, with Tim having to settle for a creditable third place.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw a fine win for Ally Neill, with Jackson returning to second from the back row of the grid ahead of Ricky Shaw.

Welcome Republic of Ireland visitors Dave Casey and Jeff Riordan bolstered the National Hot Rods grid for the Ulster Championship, with a unique Formula 1 style qualifying system in use. The slowest drivers on the lap timing clock were eliminated during Q1 and Q2, leaving the fastest trio of Glenn Bell, Shane Murray and Jaimie McCurdy to battle for pole position during Q3. McCurdy and Murray swapped times back and forth, but Bell was the master of the conditions to grab pole spot for the championship race in sublime fashion.
As Bell raced clear from the off in the Ulster Championship event, Murray settled into second ahead of Ben McKee as McCurdy hit trouble and retired. Casey’s pressure on McKee saw him grab third spot but up front Bell was home and dried to a successful defence of his title, with Murray and Casey filling out the podium.
The reversed grid Grand National saw Keith Martin fight off a spirited challenge from Bell to just hang on for the win, with Murray and Casey next home.

Another huge field of Stock Rods took to the circuit, the rude health of the formula underlined by a posse of twelve star graders lining up at the rear of the grid. Johnny McCloy set the pace early on in the opening heat, leading for much of the distance before Del McLaughlin slipped past with three to go to record the victory. Lee Wylie took second ahead of McCloy, with some huge battles amongst the main pack behind. McLaughlin repeated the dose in the second heat, this time leading from flag to flag for his second win of the evening. British Champion Shane McMillan drove a great race to take second ahead of fellow star grader Stephen McCready and McCloy.
McMillan and Stevie McNiece shared the front row for the Grand Final of the PC Paints & Components Challenge Series, with McMillan setting into the lead as McNiece got railroaded on the outside groove. Gary Butler continuously whittled down McMillan’s lead as the race progressed, arriving right with him as the five laps to go signal was shown. Butler tried his best to pull off the outside pass but Shane was equal to his every move and coolly thwarted each of his attempts. Onto the last lap and Butler switched back to go for a gap on the inside, with the duo sensationally tripping over each other as they headed onto the back straight. McMillan got turned aside and his hopes were unfortunately gone. Butler took the flag ahead of Marc Morrell and Derek McMillan, and he was allowed to keep the series victory after a very lengthy Stewards Enquiry into that explosive final lap.

Michael Woods set the early pace in the opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods, before Allen Cherry came charging past to take the win over Stephen Emerson and Adam Hylands. Denver Grattan demoted Woods early in heat two to go on to take his first ever 2.0 Hot Rods victory, with Emerson and Hylands once again in second and third.
Grattan again hit the front early on in the Hankook sponsored final, edging out a healthy lead. Emerson worked his way through to second, but as he began to close on the lead his engine expired in the biggest possible fashion which blanketed the circuit in smoke. Grattan emerged from the haze to take his second win of the day and elevate himself to the blue grade for the next meeting, with Thomas Dilly taking an impressive second and Cherry third.

The Thunder Rods completed the programme, with Jonny Teggart taking a clear win in the opening heat over Josh Goligher, as the star men failed to make an impact on the busy circuit. Goligher turned the tables in heat two to take the win over Teggart, with Steven Elder this time in third.
The final saw the two heat winners, Teggart and Goligher, have a monster scrap for the silverware once they found a way past early leader Elder. Josh and Jonny swapped places back and forth, before Teggart settled in out front. A momentary slip from him though allowed Goligher back alongside but Teggart powered back around the outside to take a superb victory over Goligher, with Jerome Doherty announcing his comeback to the formula with a creditable third.

Please see below a news item from Deane Wood regarding upcoming rule changes for Superstox:

I have been looking at the Superstox for the last couple of years and feel that they are following the same pattern as the BriSCA F2’s have done and it has not worked for the F2’s and they were a lot bigger than what Superstox are. Therefore, I feel that rule changes have got to come in to start trying to even the cars up. I sit and watch the races and if the conditions and tracks are good the top drives can be in the lead within eleven laps. This is not good for spectators and is not good for lower grade drivers without big budgets.

The first change will be with brakes. You will be allowed a maximum of a 240mm size disc. There will be no machining or grinding of callipers or wheels. Reason, if one of these broke who would be responsible for it? The callipers must be symmetrical from side to side on the same axle and with the same size piston. Other than as stated here the callipers will stay the same as per section 14.1 of the 2018 Superstox Rules & Regulations. We are going to a single brake cylinder. This will work front and back brakes and you are only allowed one single reducer which will be in the line to the back brakes. Brake pads will remain free for next season and I have already had talks with Mintex who are quite willing to make the brake pads and police it for the 2020 season if I feel we need to go further with brakes.

Anti-roll bars from next season will be banned. No torsions arms or any connecting arms from one side to the other on the suspension. In-board suspension will be symmetrical from side to side and not adjustable rockers. The rocker itself will not be adjustable to alter the ratio.

Shock Absorbers from 2020 will be going onto controlled shock absorbers. More details will follow on this. Shock absorbers from 2019, you will not be allowed to change your shock absorbers one your car has been safety checked. Shock absorbers cannot be changed unless damaged. You must get a scrutineer to confirm this. This is to stop people from changing shocker absorbers from wet to dry now we have banned the anti-roll bar. If you are caught changing a shock absorber without permission this will be classed as cheating and therefore you will receive a ban.

If this does not work, then for 2020 I will look into link arm lengths and putting everyone onto the same back suspension.

I know this is going to upset some of the top drivers, but I am sorry I have done a lot of investigating in the last six months and spoken to a lot of drivers who have stopped racing and they feel that the sport in general is getting too complicated and too dear. Therefore, I am trying to keep it inline of not just money but being fun as well. Please do not go on social media and start criticising because this is not good for our sport or the formula. This is not just things I have done on my own, I have spoken to a lot of different people and car builders as well and I have to do what I think is right for the formula to create closer and more exciting racing.

On Sunday November 25th DMC Race Promotions will stage our first ever Back to Basics Bangers meeting at Tullyroan Oval.

This really is what it says on the tin - Back To Basics - with cars running 'on the key', dashboards can be left in, no additional welding permitted and bonnets and boots etc can only be tied with seat belt to secure. For this event only under 1800c petrol cars and under 2000cc non-turbo diesel cars can be used. The Ford Focus and Mondeo or any Honda powered cars are not permitted.

This formula is designed as the entry level fun Banger class ideal for those just starting out or those drivers who want to race with a limited budget. This could well be the meeting to get you off the terraces and onto the track!!

The format has really taken off on the Spedeworth raceways in England, and will hopefully inject some interest into the local Banger scene and bring some new blood on board. Interest in this meeting is already high - please see the full specs on the link below.

Many thanks to our friends at Spedeworth Motorsports for allowing us to use their rules and format for this meeting.
