An excellent crowd basked in late summer sunshine at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, and they were treated to some blistering action on track too. The Micro Bangers stole the show with a huge entry in excess of 30 cars, with Scottish visitors The Mob taking the Micro Madness teams title with a convincing win. Edinburgh's Jim Dillon Jnr was the star of the day, the former Junior Bangers star landing a heat and final double on his first appearance in the senior class. In the other formulae on show there were victories for Portadown's Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, Dublin's Deano McGrath took the Rookie Bangers win and Scotch Street ace Wayne Woolsey the 2.0 Hot Rods silverware. Rounding out the programme were the Reliant Robins, with their Tullyroan Challenge Cup falling to Portadown's John Stewart.

With an excellent entry of 3-a-side Micro Banger teams on hand, the battle for the Micro Madness title was always going to be hard fought. The first heat started with a bang with a stoppage when Paul Compelli found himself upside down. As the hits went in all around the packed raceway they didn't get much further on the restart until Ryan McDonald found himself upended on the Tullyroan end. Jim Dillon Jnr had been ahead at the stoppage and left the others trailing in his wake to claim first blood for 'The Mob B' ahead of Stephen Clarke of 'Riding Solo' and another Scot in Graham Black. Brian Youngston set off into a clear lead in the second heat before he was removed from the lead by Dublin's Stevo McGrath. Local ace Willy Ogilby saw his opportunity to finish Youngston off but in the midst of it all Willy ended up on his side against the wall which brought about another stoppage. At the resumption Aaron Clarke from 'Riding Solo' took the win over English visitor Stuart Beevis who was racing for local outfit Team Buckle.
Dillon was again the man to watch in the final, surging into an early lead before Clarke got himself in all sorts of trouble on turn three and needed a stoppage to receive medical attention. Despite the best efforts of the others to stop him, including Adrian McKinstry from 'Team Autostore', Dillon took his second win of the day over Buckle drivers Steven Bolton and Jonny Murdock. The action in this one was second to none, with credit due to Frank Boardman who just wouldn't give up in a horrendously damaged machine.
With just the Destruction Derby to go, it was going to take a win from Bolton's 'Team Buckle B' to snatch the overall crown from 'The Mob B'. Bolton looked in fine fettle early on, but hit trouble and went out, handing the overall title to the Scottish visitors. 'Krash Krew' ace Darren Gaffney took the DD win, with the Entertainer of the Day award going to Englishman Beevis and Ogilby taking a deserved Best Wreck trophy.

There was a welcome first appearance of the season for European Champion Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods and he was very quickly back in the groove. The opening heat saw an absolutely outstanding race as Ricky Shaw gave it his all on the outside line in his attempts to wrestle the lead off Alastair Stewart. Shaw was narrowly ahead for three of the last four laps, but when it mattered Stewart just got the verdict on the line with Shaw a gallant runner up ahead of World Champion Gary Beggs. Heat two was another excellent event, as Jackson held off huge pressure from British Champion Jordan Rochford and Scott Cochrane to take the win.
Jackson and Rochford shared the front row of the grid for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Jackson immediately settling into the lead. Nigel controlled the pace, and the race, totally from flag to flag, holding off an onslaught from Rochford, Beggs and Shaw. Even a mid-race caution period couldn't halt him, and experienced campaigner Jackson looked as though he'd never been away as he took a fine victory. Beggs and Rochford filled out the top three places at the end of another excellent day for the Lightning Rods.

There were two World Championship places up for grabs in the Rookie Bangers, and as Leonard Dunn was spun out for the first of what seemed a hundred time during the day, Paul O'Connor charged through to take the win in the opening heat over fellow Dubliner Deano McGrath. McGrath turned the tables in the second outing with the win, before both faced the Wildcard draw to decide if the heat winners started at the front or the back of the grid for the final. Unfortunately both drew the rear, which allowed Stephen McLaughlin to charge into a clear lead. Just when it seemed that he might cause a major upset his engine blew in no uncertain terms, which opened the door for McGrath to take the win over O'Connor and Stephen Doyle.

The high speed aspect of the programme was the 2.0 Hot Rods, with Ryan McClure taking a very welcome win in the opening heat just ahead of Wayne Woolsey and Adam Best. McClure has looked in top form since acquiring the ex-Heatrick Saxo, and he set the pace in the second heat only to hit problems and retire. That allowed Best to take the win, again ahead of Woolsey with Allen Cherry in third.
McClure again set the pace in the feature race final, but he had no answer to the flying Woolsey who swept through to take the flag. Wayne then had to wait on a Steward's Enquiry after earlier contact on Cherry before being declared the winner. McClure and Cherry impressed in second and third.

Resident trophy girl Haley Bevan celebrated her maiden Reliant Robins win in their opening heat of the afternoon, driving the race of her life to hold off a fast closing John Stewart. It was just reward for Haley's dedication to the formula, and many were hoping she could repeat the feat in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final. Again she set the pace, but the extra distance allowed Stewart and Ian Bolton to edge past in the closing stages. John and Ian were never far apart, but it was Portadown's Stewart who took the victory over Bolton and Bevan.

The visitors were very much in charge during the main events at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, as the title races for both the Stock Rods and Ninja Karts went across the Irish Sea. English Champion Dean O'Dell from Bedfordshire took the honours in the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, whilst Riley Marsh from Kent won the Ninja Karts Irish Open Championship. In the others classes in action, Wayne Woolsey was victorious in the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Grand Prix, Jordan Rochford scored another win in the Lightning Rods and Matthew Nicholl took the flag in the Junior Productions.

The opening Stock Rods encounter in the PC Paints & Components Tullyroan Challenge Cup saw a huge battle between Marc Morrell and Curtis Greer, with Greer challenging hard on the wide outside line in only his first meeting in the class. Try as he might Greer couldn't find a way past a resolute Morrell, and it was Marc who held on for a fine win over Greer and Southampton based Jack Grandon. Derek Conner led fellow Scotsman Chris Lattka at the start of heat two, with Lattka challenging hard to get the lead. It turned into a mammoth battle at the front, which was settled by a superb outside run from England's Dean O'Dell to take an outstanding victory on what was now a very wet track. Bobbie Johnston, who was crowned British Champion at Aghadowey the previous night, took second ahead of Jonathan Lattka.
Aggregate points saw Johnston on pole position ahead of Morrell, and Marc found himself in the wall at the first attempt to get going. Johnston set the pace at the second time of asking, but had no answer to flying English Champion O'Dell as he put in another superb pass to take up the running. Greer and Andy Best both demoted Johnston before the flag, only for Greer to fall foul of the post race technical checks. Nothing could detract from O'Dell's great victory however, with Best and Johnston inheriting second and third respectively.

A large field of 6-11 year old Ninja Kart racers from all across the UK contested the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm Irish Open Championship. The racing was simply superb around the Tullyroan bowl, with Broughshane's Jay Clyde the early leader in the opening heat before losing out to England's Kasey Jones in the closing stages. Behind Jones, European and National Champion Declan Honeyman came through for second ahead of Stewart Hanna. There was a great battle between local lass Lily Gallagher and English duo Max Eaton and Riley Marsh in heat two, as they contested the lead places throughout. Eaton just held off World Champion Marsh at the line, with Gallagher next up.
Eaton and Marsh shared the front row for the Irish Open Championship, and together with Jones they would dominate the event from start to finish in the wet. Marsh had Jones right on his case but resisted every attempt to pass, until they touched and Marsh sensationally spun off. A stoppage soon after for a stranded kart on the home straight saw lady luck really shining on Marsh, as the restart order was taken from the last completed lap which put Riley back in front. He made no mistake over the final few laps, taking a superb win over Jones and Eaton for an English clean sweep of the major places.

The 2.0 Hot Rods saw a class debut for Chris Hamill plus a welcome visit from Tipperary racer Jason O'Brien. Allen Cherry set the pace early in heat one, whilst further back Wayne Woolsey was looking very sharp as he demoted Mervyn Emerson and usual National Hot Rod star Glenn Bell. Woolsey closed on leader Cherry but had to settle for second as Allen took a welcome win after suffering heavy damage at Aghadowey last week. There was no stopping Woolsey in the wet heat two, as he quickly raced clear of European Champion Stephen Emerson to take the win. Bell took second ahead of S Emerson.
Woolsey and Bell occupied the front row of the Irish Grand Prix final, but Cherry almost caught them both napping to slip up the inside as the green flag came out. Woolsey quickly fought back to retain his lead, and from then on was in total control of the outcome. Wayne took the honours with fellow Portadown man Bell in second, with Cherry a creditable third.

A fine entry of Lightning Rods put on some of their best racing in some time, with novice Adam McCann putting in very encouraging drive in the opening heat. He led for some way before losing out as British Champion Rochford swept by to take the victory over Ricky Shaw and Mark McCambridge. With the rain having arrived for heat two, the wet circuit saw Ricky Shaw set the pace before he was relegated by a hard charging World Champion Gary Beggs. Beggs took the spoils over Shaw and Ally Neill.
The final turned out to be a cracker, with Alastair Stewart the leader for much of the distance. He fended off an onslaught from Beggs, Beggs and Rochford then almost tangled, before Jordan found a great outside line run to take the victory in commanding fashion. Stewart, Beggs and Scott Cochrane filled the other premier places.

The first Junior Productions heat didn't get far before a huge crash which saw Irish Champion Drew McKeown collect the spinning Jack Hazlett. At the restart Josh Rodgers led them away, before Adam Weir and Davy Gurney raced past. They then tripped over each other, opening the door for Ballymena's Adam McFall to take the win over Shea Duff and Graham Meek. The damp heat two saw a convincing win for Sam McNeice over Matthew Nicholl and Gareth Halliday.
Rodgers and then Gurney were the leaders in the feature race final, with Halliday racing well indeed and for a time looking like a potential winner. Matthew Nicholl had other ideas though, storming past to take his latest final win. Halliday was docked from second for late contact, elevating Gurney back to the runner up position ahead of McNeice.
