Calling all daredevil drivers!
We have a couple of excellent opportunities for you to display your skill and bravery coming up at Aghadowey Oval. First up is next Saturday night, June 18th, when the Ramp Rollover is back! Last year's Aghadowey Ramp Rollover was a cracker, and we will be hoping for more of the same this year. The ramp has been modified to get the cars rolling much easier! Cars should be to Rookie Banger type spec, with a roll hoop to protect the driver, all glass etc removed and a full harness fitted. Contact us for more details if you fancy getting involved.

Then on Bank Holiday Wednesday July 13th, again at Aghadowey Oval, we have Big Van Banger racing. The rules will be kept simple for this one to get vans on track, and will again be built to'rookie-type' spec. All vans (approx Transit size and above) must be stripped out before racing, with a single roll bar/scaffold pole behind the drivers seat. A door plate must be fitted on the drivers door, and a full harness is required. This promises to be a spectacular afternoon's racing in front of what is always a big holiday crowd. Please contact us for further details and bookings.

DMC Race Promotions in association with Spedeworth Motorsports would like to congratulate our Stock Rod star Stevie McNiece on his superb Championship of the World victory at Tipperary on Saturday.

Driving his Vauxhall Corsa, Stevie netted a first and seventh in his heats to line up on pole position alongside fellow DMC driver Jonny Cardwell. McNiece made no mistake in the big race, leading from start to finish to take the biggest victory of his career to date and land the gold roof for the next twelve months. Defending champion Dean O'Dell from England came home in second ahead of local driver Alan McCormack. There were some great celebrations after the race, as one of the nicest men on the local racing scene enjoyed his deserved victory in the formula's biggest event.

The new World Champion will be back in action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday June 18th, when he is assured of a hero's welcome home from the local fans.

There was other Ulster success over the weekend too, with Jordan Rochford leading a DMC lock out of the top positions in the Lightning Rods Southern Irish Open, winning ahead of Richard Stewart, Gary Beggs and Winston Weir. In the 2.0 Hot Rods Southern Irish Open, local stalwart Tom Casey took the win with Antrim brothers Mervyn and Stephen Emerson second and third respectively.

Latest points charts have now been published for Ninja Karts, National Hot Rods, 2.0 Hot Rods, National Bangers & Lightning Rods.

The only regrading due this time is for the Ninja Karts, which sees Stewart Hanna head the ASC Cars NI Points Championship after his impressive start to the 2016 campaign. Callum Magill and Corey Stirling currently lie second and third respectively, and the new grades should certainly shuffle things up in the pack.

The Cirrus Plastics DMC Championship for National Hot Rods sees Jaimie McCurdy continue out front ahead of newly crowned NI Champion Adam Maxwell and Carl Sloan. That follows Sunday's final World Series round, but battle recommences in the DMC title race in August.

After Saturday's bruising battle in the National Bangers at Aghadowey Oval, Steven Reynolds has nipped ahead of his Dublin counterpart Stevo McGrath in the Fast Paintworx DMC Race Promotions Championship. Paul Gaffney is in third position in the standings.

The final World Championship Qualifying points for the 2.0 Hot Rods and Lightning Rods have also now been published. Wayne Woolsey and Jordan Rochford were the respective victors, with the top drivers in each chart heading off to their big race at Ipswich in July.

To view the latest points, click on 'Drivers' in the menu bar above, then 'Points & Grades' and then select the desired formula from the drop down menu. All drivers should note that their correct roof colour should be applied as laid down in their formula's Rules & Regulations. Checks will be carried out over the coming meetings and offenders may be forced to start from the rear of the field.

A baking hot afternoon at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday saw the drivers revel in the perfect conditions, producing some top class racing for the legions of fans in attendance. Ballycalre's Gary Wilson took the honours in the final round of the PC Paints & Components World Series NI for National Hot Rods, but it was Crumlin's Adam Maxwell who was crowned Northern Ireland Champion after a year long points battle that went right down t the final race of the series. Other final winners at the Bell Building sponsored meeting were Shane Murray (2.0 Hot Rods), Denver Grattan (Superstox), Stephen Boyd (ProStocks) & Adam Weir (Junior Productions).

The perfect weather saw a record equalling twenty National Hot Rods on duty for the final round of PC Paints & Components World Series NI. Novice Philip McCloy led them away in the opener, and he impressed as he held the lead most of the way. A small slip on the last lap however opened the door for Portadown's Andy Stewart to nip by for the win, with McCloy very unfortunate to finish in the wall on the back straight. Gary Wilson took the runner up slot ahead of Adam Maxwell and meeting sponsor Glenn Bell. Rab Forsythe was the early leader in the second heat, before the flying Wilson soared past to take up the running. Derek Martin, the pre meeting favourite to land the NI title, saw his hopes disappear in a cloud of smoke as he hit terminal mechanical problems which would sideline him for the rest of the day. Wilson powered home to victory, ahead of Bell, Jaimie McCurdy and Carl Sloan, the latter cementing his World Championship qualifying position after his rival for the final slot Adam Hylands hit trouble in the opener.
Wilson had claimed pole position for the final, and he made no mistake at the off to take up the running. Bell gave it his best shot on the outside but just couldn't hang on to the electric pace Wilson was setting. Gary made no mistake and led all the way to the chequered flag, with Maxwell grabbing second at the end ahead of Bell. That second spot was enough to hand the NI Championship title to Maxwell after long, gruelling season, and he celebrated in some style with doughnuts on the Pit Bend.

It was Round 2 of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series for the 2.0 Hot Rods, and Annaghmore's Joel Richardson took his new Spedeworth Fabrications car to its maiden victory in the opener ahead of Stuart Cochrane and Shane Murray. Cochrane had a scary moment in heat two, as his engine detonated in a huge fireball down the back straight. The marshals were quickly on the scene to deal with the situation, and at the restart Jack Boal led them all the way home to the flag for a welcome win. Richardson and Murray filled the places ahead of Wayne Woolsey.
Richardson led them away in the closed grid final, but quickly had Murray challenging on the outside line. Richardson took them both in much too deep into turn one, which allowed Stephen Emerson up the inside. Richardson tried to close the door and got spun aside, with Murray breaking clear into the lead. The former double World Champion then produced a stunning display to leave the rest trailing in his wake, racing home to the silverware and a new Hooiser tyre courtesy of the series sponsors. Adam Best and an impressive Ian Riordan chased him home at the flag.

A pleasing 16 car field of Superstox gridded for their opener, with Cyril Hawe the leader in the early exchanges. An excellent battle developed for the lead, and it was Chris McArdle who got the best of it to land a deserved victory over Conor Murphy and impressive novice Aaron McNeilly. Another rapid newcomer, Warren Martin, led the second heat for some time, before star man Lee Davison produced one of the hits of the season so far by removing Martin, McArdle and Ryan McClure in one fell swoop of the bumper to take up the running. Davison powered to an impressive win over Gary Chambers and Denver Grattan.
Debutant William Hodgen was the early leader of the feature race, before they were all brought short by a caution period when Jack Gilpin lost a wheel. After the restart the crowd were treated to a superb race, with a battle for the lead between Murphy and McArdle with star men Grattan, Chambers and Davison squabbling over the places. Grattan soon took command of the race however, powering through to take the win over Chambers and Jordan Robinson.

Entertainment and big fields were the name of the game for the ProStocks, who once again produced three superb races. Jay White was the early leader in heat one and the recent newcomer looked all set to grab his maiden win until he was dumped out of contention by Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Dan took the honours over Jordan McCann and the Wright brothers, Robbie and Davy. Heat two was all about Del McLaughlin, as he went ahead on the fifth lap and took the flag well clear of the opposition. Robbie Wright took second, with Stephen Boyd getting the better of Stephen McCready in a great battle for third and fourth.
White and Lee Both were the early leaders of the Bell Building sponsored final, before Ballymena's James Goldie took up the running out front. By now Boyd was through to second, and as McCready and then Robbie Wright found the wall on turn four, Stephen closed the gap to leader Goldie. In went the bumper, and Boyd was through for an astonishing third final victory in a row in one of the country's most competitive divisions. Shannon and Goldie filled the podium places.

The best field of Junior Productions seen in recent times included former Ninja Kart star Joel McPeake, as he made his debut in a very pretty Vauxhall Corsa. He led the opening exchanges of heat one before losing out to Ben Bruce. Adam Weir was the man to watch though, and he found a way through to the lead to take the win over Graham Meek and Bruce. A number of incidents reduced the field during het two, and as they entered the closing stages it was Bruce who led from Matthew Nicholl. Nicholl then produced a breathtaking drive right around the outside of the leader to take an absolutely fantastic win over Bruce and Shea Duff.
On his best run for some time, Bruce again led the final for much of the distance, fending off the advances of Weir and Adam McFall. McFall crashed out nearing the end, with Weir producing an outside line pass to take the win that many a senior racer would have proud of. He took the honours in magnificent style for his first ever final win, ahead of Drew McKeown and Davy Gurney.

On a fine summers evening at Aghadowey Oval, the drivers served up some great racing at a fantastic meeting on Saturday. The 2L National Bangers were the headline act, and they didn't disappoint with some heavy action throughout the evening. Marty McKiernan and Stevo McGrath lifted the Irish Open Championship and King of Aghadowey titles respectively, with Ivan Elliott also crowned King of Aghadowey in an absorbing 1300 Stock Cars final. Other feature race wins at the meeting, sponsored by Racemart and Ryan Wright Signs & Embroidery, were Sam Percy (Ninja Karts), Vince Litter (Lightning Rods) and David Kernohan (Reliant Robins).

An excellent entry of 2L National Bangers burst into battle for the 2016 Irish Open Championship, with the action coming thick and fast right from the off. Scottish visitor Frank Boardman got obliterated on the Pit Bend right at the off, taking all manner of hits before the red flags came out to rescue him. The big hits kept flying in, but Marty McKiernan held them all off to take a superb victory over Paul Stafford and Willie McFaul.
Quite a number miraculously were returned for the King of Aghadowey race after some sterling pit work, with Stevo McGrath setting the early pace. There was a red flag for a huge Brown Trout Bend rollover for another Scottish star, Chris Thomson, but that couldn't stop McGrath from powering home to the title win. Paul Compelli took second ahead of Steven Reynolds for a Dublin lock out of the trophies.
The Destruction Derby was another outstanding event, with Noel Anderson taking some big hits early on before only four were left running - McGrath, McKiernan, Reynolds and Rod Herron. Herron got eliminated by a huge hit, before it boiled down to Reynolds v McKiernan. A number of head ons saw both cars die at the same time, with the duo sharing the spoils. Scotland's Neil Naismith took the Best Presented Car award, Fionn Donnelly's machine was declared Best Wreck, with Jonathan Compelli awarded Best Entertainer at the end of a crunching, top class night from the National Bangers.

The 1300 Stock Cars were on top form, with Aaron Rainey swapping the lead of the opening heat with Peter Greer. Rainey led Peter Greer and Curtis Greer into the last lap, with Curtis coming in hard into the final bend. Rainey got dusted around the concrete, with Curtis speeding through to a superb win ahead of Peter Greer and Rainey. Anthony McIvor joined the fray for heat two, and as always he was quickly involved in all sorts of drama. Peter Greer was the man in this one though, charging ahead to take the flag from Rainey and McIvor.
Peter Greer and Rainey shared the front row for the King of Aghadowey Final, and right from the off all hell broke loose with the bumpers going in hard all around the raceway. McIvor rattled everything in his path in no uncertain terms, landing Curtis Greer in the wall and Irish Champion Ryan Stewart too. Stewart came back hard as the hard hitting action continued, with Paddy Dempsey being an unfortunate innocent bystander as he was collected and sent hurtling into the turn one wall. The caution came out whilst Paddy received some medical attention, but he was thankfully able to walk away from what was a very big accident indeed. Rainey led the restart, swapping the lead with Ivan Ellliott until Elliott was able to settle into the lead spot. The action wasn't over just yet, as McIvor came hurtling into the final bend, running round the wall in a shower of sparks! Elliott took a deserved win out front, but Peter Greer got turned aside within sight of the line, handing the runner up slot to Jon McQuillan ahead of Rainey in third at the end of yet another top class night from the 1300's.

It was the final World Championship qualifying round for the Lightning Rods, with Mark McCambridge making good use of his blue grading to take the win in the opener ahead of Jordan Rochford and Vince Litter. Ricky Shaw set the early pace in the second outing before mechanical troubles forced him out. That handed the lead to McCambridge once more, who took his second win of the night to earn an automatic promotion to the star grade for the final.
Mark Overend set the initial pace in the final from the novice grade, before Litter came storming past to the top spot. Vince had edged out quite a lead, but that was quickly eroded by a mid race caution period for debris on the raceway. With the star men now right in contention, Litter had to use all his experience at the resumption of hostilities, as Richard Stewart and Rochford heaped the pressure on. Stewart got right alongside but couldn't quite complete the move, with Rochford attempting the same pass on the wide outside nearing the end. Litter was equal to it all though, and took a fine defensive victory over Rochford and Gary Beggs, after Scott Cochrane had been demoted from second for contact.

Another fine turnout of young stars in the Ninja Karts saw a first for the formula when all three races were drawn to race in a clockwise direction. Bobby Henderson was the star of the opening heat, leading from flag to flag for a great win over Sam Percy and Corey Stirling, the latter fresh from his second place finish in last weekend's British Championship in England. Brandon Litter was the first to show in heat two, but he was powerless to stop the flying Percy as he powered past from the yellow grade to take the lead. Sam held on for a decisive victory, with runner up on the road Stewart Hanna docked two places for contact in the closing stages. That elevated Jack Morrow to second ahead of Stirling.
Curtis McConkey held the early lead in the final over Daniel Stewart, but Percy really had the bit between his teeth once again and surged ahead on lap three. Heavy backmarking traffic proved no problem to the Randalstown flyer, and he completed his double for the evening with his first ever feature race win, and in some style too. Hanna took a deserved runner up spot in this one, ahead of Stirling, Stewart and Callum Magill. Brandon Litter was the delighted winner of the TwoZeroSix Fitness Most Improved Driver Award.

David Kernohan chased down early leader Haley Bevan to take the opening Reliant Robins victory of the evening, with John Stewart and Ian Bolton the placemen ahead of the new Kyle Busch NASCAR lookalike #18 machine of Irish Champion JayJay McConaghie. Bevan made good her lead in the second heat, holding on out front until the very last lap when Stewart squeezed past on the outside to land the win over Bolton.
Bevan again led the final but at mid distance Kernohan powered past to the lead. Despite the best efforts of Bolton, who closed right up towards the end, Kernohan held on to take the win. Bolton and Stewart filled the places, whilst Bevan had a huge rollover on the final lap which left her dangling upside down on the Brown Trout end. Haley was rescued from her stricken machine, and quickly dusted herself down to take on her other role of trophy girl, presenting the delighted Kernohan with his silverware.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Ryan Wright Signs & Embroidery and Racemart
