Latest News
A huge weekend of oval racing was enjoyed by drivers and fans alike over two days of competition at both DMC Race Promotions circuits. The action commenced at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday before continuing at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday. The big winner of the weekend was Ballinderry ace Jonny Cardwell, who scooped the Stock Rods British Championship title whilst England’s Jack Witts won both the Irish Championship and Irish Masters in the visiting National Ministox formula. The latest round of the National Hot Rods World Series NI saw Portadown’s Adam Hylands come out victorious at Tullyroan on Sunday.

A huge field of Stock Rods assembled for the 2021 British Championship, with three qualifying heats shared between defending champion Derek McMillan, Jonny Cardwell and Adam McFall. Siobhan Martin from Scotland qualified on pole and led the final early on, before Cardwell found a gap on the inside that edged Siobhan wide and ultimately out of the race. A number of caution periods couldn’t dislodge Cardwell from the top spot, and he raced home to the chequered flag, and his first major title victory, ahead of McMillan. Stevie McNiece claimed third spot after a raft of penalties were handed out amongst the pack for contact.

Sunday saw the Irish Open Championship up for grabs for the formula, with McMillan and young Randalstown star Sam McNeice claiming the heats wins. McMillan then powered away from the front of the grid in the final, taking victory over impressive sixteen-year-old McNeice with Scottish lady racer Martin in third.
National Ministox

Playing a great supporting role was the first Ulster visit of the National Ministox. The formula, more regularly seen on the English circuits, put on a great show in their awesome little ironed-up Mini’s, with the Irish Championship up for grabs at Aghadowey on Saturday. Jaden Key and Joelan Maynard (twice) shared the three heats, before the drivers lined up under the floodlights for the inaugural LJN Designs sponsored Irish decider. Sam Critchley set the early pace ahead of Cody Hanson, before a caution period brought the star graders into contention. Multi-champion Jack Witts quickly hit the front on the restart, fending off Kasey Jones to land the title, with Lewis Smith taking third.
Sunday saw even more exciting racing on the Tullyroan circuit, with some fantastic action as Cody Hanson, Maynard and Critchley shared the heat wins. Local racer Abbie McKinstry joined the ranks for the weekend and she led early on in the final before being ousted by Critchley. Witts and Leah Sealy were heading the rush for the front from the superstar grade, and Jack duly hit the top spot to take his second title win of the weekend over Sealy and Evan Bullock. The National Ministox really proved a hit with the local fans and everyone will look forward to a return visit in 2022.

The Junior Productions were racing for the Irish Open Championship, with Ballymena ace Aaron Ward taking the opening heat win ahead of Scotland’s Koddi Wright. Jack Morrow made short work of the second heat to take the honours over Sam Percy and Callum Magill. With similar results in the heats, Morrow won the toss with Ward for pole position in the Irish open final, Jack then racing clear to take the title in style. Percy finished second on the road but was docked two places for contact, handing the runner up slot to Wright with Ward taking third.

On Sunday Ward took victory in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup after a penalty was handed down to on the road winner Morrow. That elevated Ward, who had earlier shared the heat wins with Andrew Woods, to the top step of the podium, with Chelsy Rainey taking second ahead of the demoted Morrow.

On the sun drenched Tullyroan bowl on Sunday the National Hot Rods produced some great racing, with Adam Hylands powering past Nigel McCauley to take the opening heat win. There was a great finish to heat two, with a popular win going the way of Andrew Stewart just ahead of Hylands and McCauley. Hylands then stamped his authority all the final of Round 2 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, taking a decisive win over Shane Murray, John Christie and Glenn Bell.

Support action at Aghadowey on Saturday saw NI Points Champion Drew McKeown from Portadown take the honours in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Series in a superb wet weather drive, after Broughshane’s Davy Kernohan has scored a brace of heat wins. In the Lightning Rods there was also a double heat winner in Ballymena’s Daniel Rodgers, before Portadown’s Ronan McNally came through to take the feature race honours.

Sunday at Tullyoan also saw the Rookie Bangers in action, with Garvagh’s William McFaul grabbing a heat and final double amongst a big field of cars. The other heat fell to Josh Goligher amidst the carnage, with McFaul then getting the better of long time leader Matthew Milliken in the final.

Galgorm based European Champion Shane Murray got his National Hot Rods 2021/22 World Series challenge off to the best possible start when he took victory in a tremendous opening round at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night. On a night of great race action, Antrim’s Stephen Emerson was crowned King of Aghadowey in the 2.0 Hot Rods after another superb race, whilst young Kilmore driver Ryan Berry landed the Golden Helmet in the Ninja Karts. Loughgall’s Jamie McCann was a heat and final double winner in the Superstox, with Coleriane’s Mark McLaughlin taking a similar brace of wins in the Thunder Rods.

A pleasing eighteen car grid lined up for the opening round of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods, with Gilford’s Nigel McCauley taking the first heat win in style ahead of John Christie’s Lotus and Podge McQuaid. Evergreen veteran racer Keith Martin took a popular win in heat two, again ahead of the impressive Christie with Davy McKay this time in third.
In the final McCauley led from the off, but by one third distance Christie had moved to second and quickly launched an assault for the lead. Lap after lap the duo raced side by side, with the rapid trio of Glenn Bell, Derek Martin and Shane Murray closing all the time. Christie almost made the move stick, but then McCauley ran them both deep into the Brown Trout Bend and in a flash the chasers were through. Recently crowned National Champion Martin took up the running and took the chequered flag, but after a lengthy Stewards Enquiry he was demoted two places in the final analysis for contact during the race. That elevated Murray to the win, ahead of Bell in second after a truly scintillating race.

The randomly drawn grid for the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw star man Jordan Rochford on pole position, and he quickly turned that into a win over Gary Butler and Scott Cochrane. Davy Potter led the opening laps of the reversed grid heat two before British Champion Conor Hughes overhauled him on the wide outside line. As Hughes took a great win, Stephen Emerson and Adam Best came through for second and third respectively.
Rochford had qualified on pole spot, and he quickly edged clear out front in the King of Aghadowey final. Emerson moved through to second, and sensed his chance might still come as Rochford got embroiled in heavy back marking traffic. As he came to put a lap on Trevor McConnell, the most minimal of hesitation gave Emerson his chance, and he nipped under Rochford and then outside the backmarker in a fantastic move. Stephen took a tremendous win which at a time looked so unlikely, with Rochford and Best filling the podium slots.

Welcome Scottish visitor Hamish Plenderleith joined the young Ninja Kart aces for their Golden Helmet award, with Ryan Berry coming on strong late on with a fine outside blast to win the opening heat over Andrew Hawe and Ryan Abernethy. Hawe then went one better in heat two, taking victory over Berry and Leyton Hughes.
The final saw Berry lead initially before being passed by Plenderleith who took up the running. As Hamish looked all set for the win, Hughes challenged late on only for the two to clash and go out on the very last bend. Amidst the chaos of that crash, Riley Dawson-Stirling crossed the line first, but he then failed the post race technical checks which handed the win and the trophy to a delighted Berry, ahead of Hawe and Noah Teggart.

Teenager Ryan Dilly took a fine win in the opening Superstox heat, showing a clean pair of heels to chasers Jamie McCann and Lee Davison. Brian Lammey, Odhrann McGeown and Conor Murphy all had spells out front in the second heat, before McCann came on late to take the win over Ed Davis and Irish Champion Kyle Beattie.
Young novice McGeown impressed as he set the early pace in the final, but he had no answer to McCann’s pace as Jamie moved ahead to complete a heat and final double. Davis took second spot, with Craig McConnell netting third after a great battle with British Champion Davison.

Once again the budget Thunder Rods fielded a huge grid of cars, making the going more than hectic all evening to say the least. Mark McLaughlin raced through to land the opening heat over Chris Baird, before novice grader Lucas Goligher took a morale boosting heat two win ahead of Samuel Murphy and Simon McLaughlin.

The final under the floodlights was action packed from start to finish, with Paddy Hannigan setting the pace until he came under attack from all angles late on. McLaughlin found a way past to the front, and even survived a late caution period to take the win over the impressive duo of Jason Darragh and James Goldie.

The weather may have tried its best to dampen the spirits at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, but the drivers put on an excellent show for all the race fans in attendance. Local driver Allen Cherry took an emotional victory in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst Rathfriland’s Ivan Elliott took a fantastic last-gasp win in the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship, having tracked Scotsman Gary Nicholls for much of the race.
Nigel Jackson produced a wet weather masterclass in the Lightning Rods, young Sam McNeice from Randalstown grabbed Stock Rods glory whilst Loughgall’s Jonny Murdock took a Final and Destruction Derby double in the Micro Bangers.

Welcome Co Cork visitor Ian Riordan joined the local 2.0 Hot Rod stars to defend the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy, held annually in memory of the popular former racer. Jordan Rochford made short work of the greasy conditions to win the opening heat ahead of Allen Cherry, the latter making a return to racing after a lay off due to injury. Drew McKeown took the spoils in heat two, easily racing home ahead of Scott Cochrane and Denver Grattan.
The final paired Rochford and McKeown on the front row, and a superb battle developed over the opening laps. They both had a spell out front, as had Cherry, as the lead was swapped on numerous occasions. But Cherry was the one to make it stick, edging clear to race home to a very popular and poignant victory in a race that means so much to the Cherry family. On a very emotional podium, Allen was joined by runner up Rochford and third placed Gary Butler.

A whole host of very welcome English and Scottish visitors joined the locals for the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship. The bumpers were put to good use in the opener as Scotsman Gary Nicholls took the win over England’s Jacob Roff, after Antrim’s Stephen McCready was demoted from second for jumping the start. The action continued in the second heat, with Nicholls again taking the win over Roff once again, with McCready this time taking third.
The final was lined up on aggregate points and with top performers Nicholls and Roff sharing the front row, we also had some of the star men a little closer to the sharp end of proceedings. The sparks flew right from the off as the drivers got well and truly stuck in, with one of the Mathieson brothers from Scotland going for a particularly wild ride down the home straight in the midst of the pack. Nicholls held the lead from the off, but for the whole duration of the race he was tracked by Ivan Elliott. That was until the very last bend, when Elliott came in with a huge hit, sending Nicholls around the wall and allowing Ivan to nip through on the inside to land the title win in some style. Nicholls and fellow Scotsman Kyle Hegg completed the podium after an excellent evening’s entertainment.

A slightly depleted Lightning Rods entry saw two heat wins for Ronan McNally in the slippery conditions. Ronan led home a fast looking Stuart Agnew in the opener and Aaron Brunton in heat two, after newcomer Daniel Rodgers had impressed as he led the opening laps of both races.
Rodgers and Brunton had spells out front in the final, but it was renowned ‘rain master’ Nigel Jackson who produced a masterclass of wet weather driving to leave all the others trailing in his wake. Nigel took a fine feature race win ahead of Agnew and Mark McCambridge.

NI Points Champion Adam McFall was the star turn in the Stock Rod heats, racing from the back of the grid on both occasions to take the victory. Heat one saw him relegate early leader Mark Kilpatrick to take the win ahead of Marc Morrell, before swooping past long time leader Robert McIlroy in heat two to take his second win of the night over Sam McNeice.
McIlroy and Willie Taggart had a great side-by-side scrap for the lead early in heat two, before Mark Crawford moved ahead to take up the running as McFall’s hat-trick bid faltered with mechanical woes.. Mark’s fellow Junior Productions graduate McNeice was the one to watch though, Sam moving ahead to take his first ever senior victory after a very solid drive indeed. Crawford, Shane McMillan and Dan Shannon filled the places.

The Micro National Bangers produced some fine racing and crashing during the night, with Loughgall’s Jonny Murdock coming through the chaos of the main race to land the Micro Madness final over Leonard Dunn and Mike Flaherty. Dunn had led until punted wide late on by Murdock.
The Allcomers race saw Dunn hit the front early on, before Flaherty powered ahead to take the win, having even survived a grassy excursion when a number of cars clashed directly ahead of him. Rodney Herron and Sean Flaherty filled the places, before a bruising Destruction Derby fell to Murdock after Dunn and Sean Flaherty just fell short. Mike Flaherty also had a rollover in this one to keep everyone entertained!
