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!

DMC Race Promotions and the NHRPA are delighted to announce that Simpson Race Exhausts will continue as the title sponsor of National Hot Rods World Series NI for the 2021/22 season.

The renewal of the deal for a fourth season is a major boost for the formula on the Ulster raceways as we head into the new campaign. The winner of each of the fourteen rounds will receive a cash incentive from Simpson Race Exhausts.

Matt Simpson, himself a former European Champion in National Hot Rods, was very enthusiastic about the extension of the deal. "I am over the moon to be supporting World Series NI again and am thankful for all the custom that we have received in return across all the oval racing formulae. I look forward to coming over again to Northern Ireland sometime soon to see some racing now that restrictions are easing."

Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI blasts back into action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday August 14th, and with some new and returning drivers set to come to the grid it promises to be yet another exciting season of National Hot Rod racing.

The action was red hot both on and off the track at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with the fans basking in the heatwave sunshine as the drivers produced the goods on the circuit. Portadown’s Lee Davison continued his rich vein of form with victory in The Moffett Shield for the Superstox, whilst Glenavy’s Dan Shannon claimed a dominant win in the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow took the spoils in an incident strewn Junior Productions Golden Helmet race, whilst the other feature race winners were local man Thomas Dilly in the Classic Hot Rods, Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars and Kilrea’s Jordan Nicholl in the Thunder Rods.

A pleasing field of 20 cars took the green flag for the opening Superstox heat, including former F2 European & Irish Champion Craig McConnell on his formula debut. Young Ryan Dilly took the spoils in the opener, before he had a huge race-stopping spill in heat two. Jamie McCann took the heat two victory, before the final got off to an explosive start with Jordan Robinson rolling over on the back straight. At the resumption James Stewart set the pace out front, and after a tremendous four way fight it was British Champion Lee Davison who powered through to grab the Moffett Shield in some style. Kyle Beattie and Jamie McCann followed him home, with Conor Murphy also getting a prize as the first white/yellow grade driver home.

Mark Kilpatrick led the opening Stock Rods heat off before Dan Shannon found a way past to take the win over Sam McNeice and Victor McAfee. Heat two then went the way of former World Champion Marc Morrell over Sam Wilson and Joe Largey. The Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final saw Shannon power away from the front of the grid, coming home to take the trophy some distance ahead of the rest of the field. Morrell impressed in second ahead of McNeice and Shane McMillan.

The young aces in the Junior Productions were chasing the coveted Golden Helmet, presented annually by the McKeown Family. Andrew Woods drove a fantastic race to land the heat one win ahead of Declan O’Connor and Jack Morrow. Sam Percy then raced through to win the second heat having sustained damage in the opener, with Aaron Dynes grabbing his best result to date in second after on-the-road runner up Alexander McCreadie was later removed from all results for misdemeanours in the final.
Dynes went for a huge rollover across the infield at the start of the final, and then a huge crash involving O’Connor and McCreadie brought proceedings to a halt for a second time. Declan spent the night in hospital after the huge spill and we all wish him well for a full and speedy recovery. Morrow didn’t let this affect him though, pulling clear at the resumption to take a fantastic victory and the impressive trophy, with Chlesy Rainey and Percy claiming the podium places after Abbie McKinstry was disqualified for spinning another car from the race.

Local ace Thomas Dilly went through the card unbeaten as the Classic Hot Rods impressed on their return to action. Thomas hunted down the immaculate Morris Minor of Adrian McKinstry in the opening heat, before he held off Andy O’Donnell in the second race of the night. In the final Gerry Rothwell led O’Donnell with just a few laps to go, with Dilly taking to the wide outside line to challenge on the final lap. Thomas pulled himself past O’Donnell, and then just pipped Rothwell to the flag by the slenderest of margins. Behind Dilly, Rothwell and O’Donnell, Adrian Boyle, Paul Magee and Lester McCloy rounded out the finishers.

Plenty of contact was the order of the day from the 1300 Stock Cars as they continue to impress, with Jonny Patterson taking their opening heat victory over Chris Hamill and Gareth Halliday. Belfast man Jon McQuillan then took heat two after the bumpers were well and truly exchanged in the pack, with Matthew Milliken and Halliday chasing him home.
The final saw Milliken break free early on and he raced home to a great victory, with Hamill and Patterson impressing on their way to second and third respectively.

Debutant Jordan Nicholl fairly shook up the Thunder Rods division as he raced clear in the opening heat to land an impressive win over Samuel Murphy and Simon McLaughlin. The star men got much more involved in the second heat as Irish Champion James Goldie took the win over Murphy and Nicholl, before Jordan once again showed the way home in the final. There were a whole raft of penalties handed down in the one, with Murphy and Dean Catherwood grabbing the podium positions ahead of Jason Darragh and returnee Andrew McLean.

Staffordshire driver James Morris was on top if the world as he claimed a dramatic victory in the Cherry Pipes 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship at a sun drenched Aghadowey Oval Speedweekend. The race fans enjoyed a festival of championship racing over the weekend, with local Aghadowey driver Aaron Stewart winning the Lightning Rods European Championship, whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes grabbed the glory in the Ninja Karts National Championship.

A top quality field was assembled for the 2.0 Hot Rods Championship of the World, with Portadown’s Jordan Rochford raising the local hopes with a win in the first of three qualifying heats, before Dublin’s Gary Butler grabbed the glory in heat two. James Morris upheld English honour with victory in heat three, but on aggregate points it was Antrim’s British Champion Conor Hughes and Rochford who shared the front row of the grid for the Cherry Pipes sponsored World Final.
Hughes led them away for 45 laps of the sun baked circuit, with Rochford and Morris chasing hard behind. Defending champion Dave Leech then worked his way through to fourth and began to reel in the leaders as the laps dwindled down. Rochford made his move in the closing stages, getting up alongside Hughes down the back straight. Side by side they came over the line as the crowd held their breath, only for Hughes to run deep into turn one, taking Rochford wide with him.
In a flash Morris accepted the gift of the inside line, the lead and ultimately the chequered flag and World Championship glory after a truly opportunistic drive. He didn’t lead too many laps, but he led the ones that mattered. Leech took second spot ahead of Rochford, Hughes and Stephen Emerson.
Adam Best then took a win in the reverse grid World Revenge race, before doubling up with victory in the Irish Open Championship ahead of London’s Mitch Souter and Morris. It was just reward for Best, who had worked wonders to repair his car after it was extensively damaged in a mid-week testing crash.

The main support act over the weekend was the Lightning Rods European Championship, which produced some fantastic racing. Former World Champion Gordy McKee and current title holder Nigel Jackson shared the heats, but it was local man Aaron Stewart who led them off, although it wasn’t for long as a huge crash brought out the red flags. Stewart again made no mistake at the restart, and he led them all the way home to take the European title ahead of Jackson and McKee.
Sunday’s Irish Open Championship saw heat wins for England’s Richard Norman and Randalstown’s Tim Hazlett. It was Jackson who qualified on pole position and he led the field away, but had Hazlett tracking his every move. Not many find a way past experienced campaigner Jackson, but Hazlett got the smallest of gaps into turn three and he was past and away. Tim then had to fight off a hard charging James McKinney all the way to the flag, but he held on for the win over McKee and Jackson, with McKinney left with just fourth for his gallant efforts on the outside line.

The 6-11 year old Ninja Kart stars came from all corners of the UK to contest the National Championship, with Irish Champion Leyton Hughes snatching the win from Scottish Champion Kenzie Kopacz in heat one. Heat two saw Hughes sensationally repeat the feat ahead of Dougie Kidd and Kenzie Bell. From pole position, Hughes would never be headed in the National Championship race, the Antrim ace leading home Murray Hall and Kopacz at the chequered flag for a fantastic win.

Sunday’s Irish Open Championship saw Bell snatch the heat one win after Stuart Shevill had led most of the way, before Hughes took the heat two honours after having crashed out of the first race of the day. In the final it was Hampshire’s Murray Hall who set the pace up front, with Bell chasing him all the way. After a tremendous tussle, it was Hall who took the win for England over Scottish ace Bell and Northern Ireland’s Hughes.

Over the weekend there was some excellent support action, with Kells driver Shane McMillan being crowned King of Aghadowey in the Stock Rods, but only after his brother Derek had hit transmission issues whilst well clear. The 1300 Stock Cars produced some fantastic action, with the sparks flying as the bumpers well and truly went in during the final under a fantastic sunset. Chris Hamill came through to take the honours in that one, before British Champion Lee Davison shared the Superstox heats with Jamie McCann before going on the take the final honours too.
