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.

After a fantastic evening of international short oval racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday, Glenarm's Bobbie Johnston celebrated his first ever major title when he won the 2016 Stock Rods British Championship from a star studded field. The Ninja Karts National Championship was also up for grabs, and the young stars shone superbly during three excellent races. Declan Honeyman led home an all Scottish top three in the National title race.
In the support classes, Shane Murray was victorious in the latest Hankook Performance Tyres National Hot Rods World Series NI round, whilst Aaron Rainey (1300 Stock Cars) and Dan Shannon (ProStocks) both took excellent last gasp feature race wins.

Most of the finest exponents of UK Stock Rod racing gathered at Aghadowey for the PC Paints & Components British Championship, and it was no surprise when Ballymena veteran Victor McAfee quickly established a clear lead in the opening qualifier from pole position. Reigning European Champion Derek McMillan kept McAfee in sight, but just couldn't get close enough to mount a challenge for the win. As Best in Britain holder McAfee took the win, McMillan and Scotland's John McAllister filled out the top places. Heat Two saw Waringstown driver Ben McCully quickly pull clear and establish an early lead that he would never lose, racing home well clear of second man Bobbie Johnston with Chris Lattka from Scotland in third.
Consistency during the heats had given Lattka pole ahead of Irish Champion Jonny Cardwell, with McCully and McAfee sharing row two and McMillan and Johnston row three. The atmosphere in the stadium was electric as they set off on their rolling laps, and it led to some dramatic opening exchanges. Lattka, McCully and Cardwell all led in the first third of the race, but with many penalties being dished out it looked like the title was going to be settled in Race Control. More warnings were dished out as Cardwell lost out, and he then overstepped the mark by ruining Lattka's race too. In the midst of it all McCully had gone out too with a sick engine, leaving Johnston holding the baby over McMillan. Derek tried desperately over the final laps but Johnston had all under control as he swept home in style to land his first big win and be crowned 2016 British Champion. McMillan and Bedfordshire's Dean O'Dell completed the podium.

The Ninja Karts contested their first major championship event in Northern Ireland, the 2016 LJN Motorsport National Championship. The young 6-11 year olds excelled all day, producing some outstanding action on a packed raceway. England's Kasey Jones was the lad to watch in the opening heat, leading all the way to the chequered flag ahead of impressive local Jay Clyde and European Champion Declan Honeyman from Scotland. A last bend melee unfortunately accounted for British Champion Charlie Hardie who had been very well placed indeed. The reversed grid heat two saw Crumlin's Corey Stirling and World Champion Riley Marsh from England battling at the front early on. Local form man Stewart Hanna joined the party along with Scottish ace Robbie Armit, leading to a real ding dong battle for the final laps. Hanna found a way past Stirling on the last lap, but unfortunately for Stewart the red flags came out early when Scottish visitor Bailey Millar ended up in the wall. That meant the result was taken from the end of the penultimate lap, with Stirling getting the win over Hanna, Armit and Marsh.
Hanna and Clyde led the grid for the National Championship final, ahead of Armit and Honeyman. There followed an absolutely thrilling event that the spectators just couldn't take their eyes off. Clyde led Hanna in a local one-two until half distance when he ran out of luck and went out. The stoppage closed the field right up, with Hanna leading before he too spun on the entrance to the home straight, bringing about another stoppage. You could have cut the atmosphere in the stadium with a knife as Honeyman led them away once again, but Declan had all under control and led the others home to add the National Championship to his European title and in some style too. Hardie was a gallant second after an outstanding drive from well down the grid, with Armit completing a Scottish top three ahead of Marsh and Stirling, Corey being the first local home in fifth.

Round two of the Hankook Performance Tyres National Hot Rods World Series NI saw class debuts from Jonny McMillan and David Kernohan amongst a 19 car field. Philip McCloy led the early exchanges of the opener, before Ian McReynolds surged past and clear. Shane Murray and John Christie both looked good from the blue grade, but whilst it looked all over bar the shouting with McReynolds clear, disaster struck within sight of the flag and he was out. Attention now switched to Adam Heatrick, and he held on for a win despite late pressure from Murray and Carl Sloan. With the order within grades swapped for heat two, McCloy again led them away, before losing out to Heatrick. Murray was right on Adam's case again, and this time was able to launch a successful attack on the wide outside line to take the lead and the win. Heatrick and John Christie in his Fiesta rounded out the top three.
Heatrick had pole position for the final with Murray alongside, and for the opening lap or more they circulated as such with Murray clinging to the wide line. He then produced a superb switch back to the inside to outfox Heatrick and take up the running, but this time Derek Martin was in hot pursuit. He was easily the fastest car on track, and soon closed down the gap to launch a bid for the lead. Despite Derek's gallant attempts on the outside, Murray had it all covered off and came home to take a hard earned win over Martin and Sloan.

There were three competitive outings from the ProStocks during the evening, with Garvagh's William McFaul landing the spoils in heat one over Stephen Boyd and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. European Champion Stephen McCready ran down early leader Lee Booth to take heat two, with Boyd again the runner up.
Del McLaughlin was the pacesetter in the final, but soon had his mirrors filled by McCready. Stephen hit the front with just five to go, but he in turn had Shannon bearing down on him. Dan stalked his prey until the last bend, landing a telling blow in text book style to move McCready wide and steal through for the win. McCready had to be content with second ahead of McLaughlin in third.

Novice grader William Donnell impressed out front in the opener heat for the blood and thunder 1300 Stock Cars, leading much of the way until Ballyclare's Michael Logan bundled his way past. Donnell came back at him, but Logan surged back through to take the victory over Ivan Elliott and Jon McQuillan. Logan and Donnell again battled in heat two, before Aaron Rainey powered through to win ahead of a close scrap between McQuillan and Nicky Lowry.
The final was all action to say the least, as an early caution period for debris saw all hell break loose on the restart with Donnell and Kieran McIvor two of a whole bunch who were dumped in the wall. Rainey took up the running before McQuillan bundled his way past, but Aaron came right back on the last bend to steal through for a fantastic victory. McQuillan and Lowry completed the podium.
