Latest News
Donegal based driver Terence McConalogue pulled off a faultless hat-trick when the National Hot Rods contested Round 2 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. On a night of high speed action under the floodlights Portadown’s Nigel Jackson won the A Percy Auto Body Repairs Challenge Series for Lightning Rods, whilst the other winners at the LMC Trade Sales of Dungannon sponsored meeting were Aughnacloy ace Kyle Beattie (Superstox), Meath driver Peter McConnell (Rookie Bangers) and Glenavy’s Dan Shannon (ProStocks).

Round 2 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI saw recent newcomer Terence McConalogue take his rightful place at the front of the grid for the first time. He quickly settled down to a great pace which the other more experienced men just couldn’t match. Terence took the first heat easily from Podge McQuaid and Andrew Stewart, before leading home former World Champion Adam Maxwell and Jaimie McCurdy in heat two.
If anyone thought the extra distance in the final might allow the star men to get on terms they were to be mistaken. Terence quickly got the head down and reeled off the laps well clear of the ensuing pack. Podge McQuaid held on for second despite the close attentions of Jaimie McCurdy nearing the end , with Keith Martin and Shane Murray next home.

For the Lightning Rods it was the Grand Final night of their A Percy Auto Body Repairs Challenge Series, with Adam McCann relieving Ronan McNally of the lead in the opening heat to take a fine win over James McKinney, who fought a rearguard battle against Richard Stewart over the closing laps. There was a huge battle in the pack in heat two, which saw McCann again take the win to earn himself a rise in gradings for the next meeting.

On aggregate series points Nigel Jackson earned pole position for the Grand Final of the A Percy Auto Body Repairs Challenge Series, and he quickly assumed the lead ahead of Tim Hazlett. Tim pressurised Jackson all the way but couldn’t unseat the leader, Nigel coming home to take the series win over Hazlett, with Martin O’Donovan grabbing third after Mark Corry and Ricky Shaw tripped over each other within sight of the flag. The top three all received race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

An excellent entry of 19 Superstox contested the second round of the NIOvalTV Series, with an action packed opener falling to yellow grader Paddy Murphy who just held off Lee Davison and Jordan Robinson. Heat two was another thriller too with yet more caution periods for stranded cars. Kyle Beattie worked his way past to the front in this one, taking the flag ahead of Davison and Sean Mark.
Darren Bevan led the opening exchanges of the final, before Keith McAreavey showed a turn of pace to power ahead. He quickly had Beattie and Davison in his mirrors as the laps dwindled down, with Kyle moving ahead to complete his double ahead of Davison, McAreavey and Robinson.

A pleasing entry of Rookie Bangers thrilled the fans all evening with their entertaining racing. Josh Goligher led the opener ahead of Peter McConnell, with McConnell actually spinning Josh across the line as he attempted to snatch the win, but Josh just held on. Philip Farrell was the one to watch in heat two as he avoided the carnage to take the flag over McConnell and Goligher.
There was a huge hit early on for David Gurney in the final which brought about a stoppage. After two runner up slots in the heats, McConnell put things right by taking victory in the feature race ahead of Farrell and Paul O’Connor, the latter inheriting third after Christy Bradley unfortunately failed the post race technical checks.

The ProStocks completed the meeting, with the heats falling to Sam Stewart and Dan Shannon, before British Champion Shannon doubled up with victory in the feature race ahead of Stewart and David Browne.

Team Sour were the toast of Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, as the Dublin based outfit were crowned winners of the Kings of Krash Unlimited National Bangers team event after a tremendous scrap. They came home just four points ahead of rivals Bad Company at the end of a great night of Banger racing action. The other feature event was The Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods which fell to Portadown’s Stuart Cochrane, whilst Kilrea’s Joshua McMullan was the winner of the annual challenge between the Thunder Rods and Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods. Birches star Steven Haugh took a hat-trick to claim the Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series for ProStocks, whilst there was also a hat-trick in the Ninja Karts for Portadown’s Max Hobson at the meeting sponsored by Cherry Pipes and Ray McGrath Transport..

An excellent field of Unlimited National Bangers came to trade blows in the Kings of Krash team event, with lone ranger Steven Bolton taking first blood for himself with the heat one win racing as Team TBG. Anthony McIvor took a huge hit into turn one courtesy of Stevo McGrath as there was action all around early on. McGrath came home in second for Team Sour ahead of Bad Company’s Leonard Dunn. Heat two saw yet more heavy action on turn three with Jonathan Compelli, Kieran McIvor and Jonny Murdock amongst those involved. Dunn came through for the win this time ahead of McGrath and another Team Sour racer, Adam Maxwell.

The double points final was always going to play a huge part in the overall standings, and despite the best efforts of the chasing Dunn, it was McGrath who raced home to the win to secure the overall title for Team Sour. With the overall points decided before the Destruction Derby, it turned into an excellent free for all with Paul Compelli going for a rollover on the back straight just as his brother Jonathan took a huge home straight hit from Davey O’Connor. The reds came out to rescue Paul who was thankfully unscathed, and at the restart a huge wrecking train kicked off on the home straight involving some huge hits from Stephen Boyd, Rocky McKenna, William Bingham, Darren Gaffney and Noel Anderson. Dunn avoided the carnage to take the victory, whilst Gaffney was awarded Entertainer of the Day and Jonathan Compelli took home the Best Wreck Award. Overall Team Sour A were victorious ahead of Bad Company A and Bad Company B.

The Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy, in memory of the popular former racer, was the main event for the 2.0 Hot Rods, with Gary Wilson grabbing the opening heat win over Allen Cherry with a rapid looking Stuart Cochrane in third. Heat two saw returnee Mark Madill race to a clear win in his Tigra, ahead of a battle for second which fell the way of Adam Best over Cochrane.

From pole position Cochrane was always going to be a huge favourite for the final, and he duly eased clear to take a tremendous victory. A huge battle developed for second between Wilson, Best and Cherry, and it was Best who finally secured the runner up position over Wilson and Cherry.

The local Thunder Rods were joined by a trio of stars from Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods for the annual challenge, with Coleraine’s Ryan Campbell taking victory in the opener over Davy Gurney and David Wilson, the latter having spent a number of laps alongside the leader. Joshua McMullan took a clear win in heat two, which was brought under caution after a huge back straight crash which eliminated a number of cars. Jason Darragh was runner up over Campbell and John Goligher.
Campbell was on pole for the challenge final, and he quickly was under pressure from James Goldie. McMullan made a bold move to hit the outside line, and he was able to superbly drag himself right around Campbell and into the lead. Goldie quickly followed suit but by now McMullan was home and dry and took the victory in some style over Goldie, Campbell and Andrew McLean.

The ProStocks were right down in numbers for the Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series, with Steven Haugh grabbing a hat-trick of victories to claim the silverware and two race tyres from the series sponsors. Dan Shannon tried his best to get on terms with second in heat one, only to then be spun off by Haugh in the opening lap of the second race! Largey took second in that one, before Shannon again tried a late lunge on the last lap of the final, but Haugh was in control all evening and he duly completed his hat-trick over Shannon and Largey.

As always the young aces in the Ninja Karts produced some tremendous action, with Max Hobson taking the opener after passing Lauren Berry late on. Lauren was unfortunately docked two places for jumping the restart during the race, which elevated Andrew Hawe to second ahead of Rhea McConkey. Heat two saw a tangle amongst a number of karts on turn two, which closed the field up under caution. Hobson got the jump on the restart to take the win over Hawe and Odhran Monaghan.
Ben Hawe was the first to show in the final, whilst Hobson was again on a mission and the young Portadown lad swooped past to complete his faultless hat-trick for the evening. Ben Hawe impressed in second ahead of Monaghan and Andrew Hawe.
