Tullyroan Oval's double British Championship Speedweekend saw some tremendous racing across two packed days of short oval action, with Portadown's Adam Hylands landing the prestigious National Hot Rods British Championship and Norfolk's Jason Cooper taking the Superstox British crown back across the Irish Sea. Amongst a whole host of other championship races, Portadown's Wayne Woolsey was victorious in the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Open Championship, England's Nick Roots won the Superstox Irish Open Championship and young Ballymena ace Aaron Ward was the inaugural winner of the Ninja Karts Keir Millar Memorial Trophy.

A cosmopolitan field from right across the British Isles contested the Dilly Roofing Supplies National Hot Rods British Championship, with two heats on Saturday evening determining the grid for Sunday's final. From pole position Broughshane's Jaimie McCurdy was never headed in the opening heat, initially leading English veteran Dick Hillard. Jaimie took the win ahead of a fast charging Derek Martin, with Shane Murray in third. Heat two was a drama filled race from start to finish, although former British Champion Glenn Bell could well feel otherwise as he led from start to finish. Adam Hylands and Gary Wilson filled out the top three in a race which saw defending champion Dave Casey disqualified for triggering a crash which eliminated three cars and another huge moment which left Murray and Ben McKee nursing badly damaged cars.
Derek Martin and Bell shared the front of the grid in the wet conditions on Sunday for the British Championship decider. Martin got it all wrong at the green and went for a 360 degree spin, allowing Hylands into the lead with Bell challenging hard on his outside. Bell hung on superbly for lap after lap, before a caution period allowed Hylands to cement his lead. Even another caution later in the race couldn't deny the Portadown man as he added the British title to his National Championship win last month. Bell and Derek Martin filled the podium, the latter after a superb recovery drive.
The British revenge race saw the grid from the British Championship reversed. England's European Champion Carl Waller-Barrett led for much of the distance before losing out to World Champion Adam Maxwell. Maxwell took the flag but was demoted after he was adjudged to have made contact with Waller-Barrett to take the lead. That handed the win to Ian McReynolds ahead of Waller-Barrett and Maxwell. The final race of the day was for the coveted Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy, which was led off with Clive Richardson's Leslie Dallas replica machine acting as pace car. With a dry line appearing on the Tullyroan track, Hylands made good his pole position to lead from start to finish in what was a hugely entertaining encounter. Unfortunately for Adam though a technical infringement saw him excluded from the result, handing the magnificent trophy to Derek Martin ahead of Keith Martin and Gary Wilson.

The opening Superstox event of the weekend was their Mk2 escort Shells & Spares British Championship final with the grid formed by public draw. Polesitter Neil Davison and England's Jake Sturt both had turns out front on the opening laps, before World Champion Jason Cooper from Norfolk powered ahead to take up the running. Fellow Englishman Brett Wesbroom came through to second, but just couldn't match Cooper's pace as he romped home to take the British title from a 27 car grid. Nick Roots with a superb drive from grid 21 came home third to make it an all English top three.
Saturday's support heat saw Scotland's Chris Cuthbert set the early pace, before Lee Davison powered past. He had no answer to Chris Roots though as the former National Champion took another race victory for the English visitors ahead of Cooper and Davison. The meeting final saw Davison make amends with a superb drive that netted him the victory over Cooper and Nick Roots.

Sunday's Superstox racing was for the Irish Open Championship, with the opening heat again seeing a great battle between Chris Roots and Davison. Roots took the win over Lee, with Cooper again excelling in third from the very back of the line up. Scotland's Chris Hay made a great start to the second heat, but lost out to Sturt who was soon swallowed up by the fast moving Cooper. Jason took the win over Chris Roots and Sturt.
The Irish Open final paired Chris Roots and Cooper on the front row courtesy of their heat scores, but Cooper lost out in the early exchanges which saw Scotland's Barry Stephen end up on his side at the pit gate. At the resumption Nick Roots hit the front, and despite the best efforts of Cooper to get back on terms the young English driver took a deserved title victory over Cooper and his father Chris Roots. The Superstox entertained impressively all weekend with some superb action.

The main event for the 2.0 Hot Rods was the Irish Open Championship staged on Saturday evening, and with visitors present from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland it led to some entertaining racing. Aughnacloy's Adam Best took victory in the opening heat ahead of Scotland's British Champion Kenny Purdie and local man Allen Cherry. Scotch Street's Wayne Woolsey was a clear winner of the reversed grid second qualifier, chased home by European Champion Stephen Emerson and another Scottish visitor, Gordon Alexander.
Technical problems saw Emerson a non-starter for the Irish Open final, with Woolsey cruising into a clear lead early on as Best and Cherry battled for second. Cherry crashed out heavily on turn two to bring out a caution, but with backmarkers between leader Woolsey and second placed Best it was Wayne who cruised home to the Irish Open title. Best and Mervyn Emerson completed the podium.

Sunday's racing was for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Fife's Billy Bonnar getting the better of Woolsey early on to go ahead. Bonnar looked all set to take the win, only to get all crossed up out of the final turn which allowed Woolsey to nick the victory on the line by the smallest of margins. Alexander upheld Scottish honour by taking the second heat ahead of Stephen Emerson and Purdie. The final saw a reduced grid as our Scottish visitors had to depart to catch the ferry home. Best and Woolsey set the early pace, only to tangle which put both out. Stephen Emerson duly accepted the lead and the victory, leading home his brother Mervyn and debutant Aaron Beattie.

The young starlets in the Ninja Karts were competing in the inaugural Keir Millar Memorial Trophy on Sunday, a superbly presented trophy designed and presented by Micky McFall and held in memory of the first ever Ninja Karts World Champion who tragically lost his life in an accident 18 months ago. The lower graders dominated the heats, with Curtis McConkey taking the opener ahead of Brandon Litter and Aaron Ward. McConkey and Litter also impressed in the second heat, again finishing first and second with Daniel Stewart and Lacy Bevan racing well in third and fourth.
McConkey and Litter set off from the front row in the Keir Millar Memorial final, but it was Ward who stormed ahead into the lead. The youngsters were circling at a breathtaking pace, and despite Stewart Hanna coming on strong in the latter stages Ward had all under control to take a magnificent win to take the fantastic trophy which he could barely lift! Hanna and Lily Gallagher completed the top three, with all the racers receiving a medal from the Millar and McFall families as a reward for their sterling efforts on track.

The Stocks Rods were in action on Saturday evening, with Jonny Gillespie leading until half way in the first heat before losing out to flying former 1300 Stock Car star Curtis Greer who took the win. Gillespie again set the pace in heat two, this time losing out to flying Dubliner Keith Butler. Butler took the chequers ahead of Gillespie and Rod Fleck. Having lost out in the heats, Gillespie was in no mood to do similar in the final, leading all the way from start to finish for a tidy victory. Fleck and Butler completed the top three, with Ed Davis netting fourth after a superb race long battle with Greer.

The Lightning Rods were also in action on Saturday night, with former World Champion Scott Cochrane putting a superb outside pass on Alastair Stewart and Mark Overend to take the win in the opening heat. Overend set the heat two pace early on before losing out to Stewart. He in turn had no answer to British Champion Jordan Rochford, as he took a great win over Stewart and Mark Corry. After two runner up slots in the heats, Stewart was the man on fire in the feature race. He powered past Overend on lap nine to take up the running and cruise home to a great win indeed. Mark McCambridge and Irish Champion Winston Weir inherited second and third after Richard Stewart was docked to fourth for contact late on in the race.

Completing the Sunday line up in the rain were the ProStocks, with novice Jay White impressing as he led the way in the opening heat until past mid distance. Adam White relegated him to race on to the win ahead of Stephen Boyd and Stephen McCready. James Goldie led the way in heat two, before losing out to former Stock Rods ace Raymond Harper who took the victory over Adam White and McCready. Heat winners Harper and Adam White contested the lead in the final, only to tangle and run wide which opened the door for European Champion McCready to slide past into a lead he wouldn't lose. Harper and Irish Open Champion Leonard Dunn took the other podium places.

A pulsating evening's racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night saw Waringstown's Ben McCully take the biggest prize on offer, the coveted William Cooke Memorial Cup for the Stock Rods. Crumlin's Shea Duff was the winner of the Junior Productions King of Aghadowey crown after an action packed series of races, whilst other winners at the S McAfee and Son sponsored meeting were Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Andrew McLean (Thunder Rods) and Steven Bolton (Reliant Robins).

European Champion Derek McMillan drew pole position for the opening Stock Rods heat, with British Champion Bobbie Johnston returning to the scene of his recent triumph and starting alongside. Derek set the pace with Bobbie right on his tail during what was a ding-dong battle. Derek put in a stout defence of his place to take the win in a very close encounter, with Johnston, Shane McMillan, Ben McCully and Marc Morrell all right there in a blanket finish. The reverse grid second heat saw McCully go ahead early on and take the win over the impressive Marc Morrell and Rod Fleck, with Johnston catching the eye on his run to fourth from the back.
McCully and Johnston qualified on the front row of the grid for the William Cooke Memorial Final, with Bobbie putting in a commendable effort on the outside for the opening laps before dropping back down the train. Derek McMillan came forward to challenge the leader, but he couldn't match McCully's pace as brake problems intervened. Ben was on top form, and duly pulled away to take the chequered flag and the trophy by a distance over Derek McMillan and Morrell. The magnificent William Cooke Memorial Cup was presented to a delighted McCully by Rallycross ace Don Shannon.

The Junior Productions stars were also using the reverse grid heat system as they contested the 2016 King of Aghadowey. Adam McFall failed to get away at the green flag at the first time of asking in heat one, causing all sorts of problems and forcing him out of the restart. Sam McNeice set the early pace but lost out to a flying Irish Champion Drew McKeown. As Drew pulled clear to the win, fellow star Shea Duff nipped past McNeice on the line to snatch second place. The second heat also took two attempts to get started, and with the rain making the going very slippery pole man Matthew Nicholl showed them all a clean pair of heels as he took a pleasing victory over McFall and Duff.
From pole position Duff set the pace in the final, with McFall, David Gurney and McKeown chasing hard. A fraught couple of laps put paid to the chances of a number in the chasing pack, bringing out the caution flags too. Duff led them away once again ahead of McFall and Graham Meek, but despite pressure from those behind Shea held on to take a deserved and popular victory. McFall was great value in the runner up slot, with Meek also doing well in third ahead of Gareth Halliday and Jack Hazlett. No doubt there will be a strict drivers briefing before the upcoming Irish Championship to try to stop the enthusiasm of the young stars from boiling over again.

A good field of Lightning Rods produced some excellent racing, with novice grader Mark Overend impressing to lead over half the duration of the opener. Fellow Portadown man Alastair Stewart stormed past to take the win, with Overend well pleased with second ahead of Ricky Shaw and British Champion Jordan Rochford. Overend again set the pace in heat two, before this time Shaw powered past to take a morale boosting win from Rochford and Cochrane.
Chris McGirr led the opening exchanges of the feature race final, before Ally Neill moved ahead challenged by Shaw and Stewart. Cochrane challenged Stewart only for Alistair to shut the door hard but too late, resulting in him taking a spin round the pit turn and triggering a huge crash that left World Champ Gary Beggs with a badly damaged car indeed. In the midst of it all Rochford, who had been on scintillating form all evening, hit the front to record another impressive victory over a hard trying Shaw and Cochrane.

Returnee Jerome Doherty led the Thunder Rods opener away before losing out to eventual winner Peter Henderson. Doherty held on for second with Andrew McLean in third. In heat two it was a flying Norman Purdy who edged past Doherty to the lead, only to lose out to Henderson as he took his second win of the night to earn a promotion to the blue grade for the final. Purdy, McLean and Samuel Montgomery filled the places.
The final was fraught early on, with Purdy nudging his way past Henderson and Chrissy Dempsey doing likewise early on. Both attracted black cross warnings from Race Control, and despite the duo pulling well clear by the chequered flag, both were duly docked two places each for the contact. That elevated McLean to a welcome victory over David Wilson in second.

Portadown's John Stewart took victory in the opening heat for the Reliant Robins over Haley Bevan and Ian Bolton, with John again in charge in the second heat too to rack up his double. Having hit problems in the opening heat, Steven Bolton dashed home for a replacement engine and duly had it fitted in time for the final. He made his efforts more than worthwhile by storming to a dream win ahead of his father Ian and Stewart.
