The Classic Hot Rods thrilled the crowds at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, with National Champion Clive Richardson taking the final victory in Round 4 of the Irish Series. Wayne Woolsey (2.0 Hot Rods) and Samuel Montgomery (Thunder Rods) both won King of Aghadowey titles, whilst Jordan Rochford won the second round of the MO Auto Repairs Challenge Series for the Lightning Rods. The Superstox completed the line up at the meeting sponsored by DRS Steel Buildings, with Irish Champion Denver Grattan taking the win.

A cosmopolitan field of Classic Hot Rods were competing in Round 4 of the Irish Series, with Alan Leonard leading the early laps of heat one in his stunning Opel Kadett. National Champion Clive Richardson was on the move and quickly ran Leonard down, only for the two to clash and spin out of contention. That handed the lead to Ant Morgan, but he lost out to series leader Thomas Dilly who took the win. Richardson made no mistake in heat two, leading all the way to the flag with Dilly getting the better of a great battle with Morgan to grab second.
Richardson led the early exchanges of the final, but had his lead wiped out when Gary O'Neill's Anglia became stranded on track. The expected onslaught from Dilly didn't materialise, as Richardson edged clear to take the honours over Dilly and Jeff Richardson.

The 2.0 Hot Rods saw a debut from Brian Cherry in a stunning Tigra and returns to the formula for Neil Davison and Derek McMillan. Stephen Emerson, who won the European title on his last outing at Aghadowey, led the opening heat before mechanical gremlins intervened, opening the door for Wayne Woolsey to take the victory over Adam Best and Mervyn Emerson. The reversed grid second heat fell the way of Best over Woolsey, whilst Stephen Emerson's miserable night continued with another retirement.
With Woolsey and Best tied on points, the toss of a coin gave Wayne pole position for the King of Aghadowey final. Despite Best's best intentions at the green flag, Woolsey simply eased away into a solid lead, taking the title in emphatic style over Stephen Emerson, who carved his way through from the back of the grid, and Best.

The Thunder Rods also contested their King of Aghadowey title, with early leader John Goligher losing out to Norman Purdy in heat one. Despite heavy pressure from Samuel Montgomery, Purdy held on to take the win with Goligher in third. Early leader Curtis Greer lost out to Peter Henderson in heat two, with Henderson going on to take the victory over Greer and Andrew McLean, the latter two having a great battle over the closing laps.
Two consistent finishes gave Montgomery pole position for the King of Aghadowey final, with McLean alongside in second. Montgomery made no mistake and inched clear of the chasing pack, with McLean, Purdy and Greer having a great battle for second. Montgomery had driven the perfect race though, taking the win in some style over Purdy, with McLean and Greer in close proximity in third and fourth.

There was a new race tyre up for grabs for the final winner as the Lightning Rods contested the second round of the M.O. Auto Repairs Challenge Series. Series sponsor Mark Overend led them away in heat one, before Ricky Shaw powered past and on to the win over Alastair Stewart and top star grader Winston Weir. Overend led until past the half distance mark in heat two, but was unable to hold off the unstoppable Jordan Rochford as the new British Champion slipped past to take the win. Scott Cochrane and Ally Neill filled the places.
With Rochford and Shaw tied on points a coin toss was called for, and when it went the way of Rochford to hand him pole position the writing really was on the wall for the others. Jordan quickly established a lead he wouldn't lose, although Weir did keep him honest all the way to the flag in second. World Champ Gary Beggs just coaxed his ailing car over the line in third spot.

There was a very welcome return to Superstox action for former Irish Champion Kyle Beattie, amongst a very pleasing turnout in the paddock. White grader Cyril Hawe led them away in heat one, but he was quickly relegated by Keith McAreavey. Keith held on to take a very welcome win, with Jordan Robinson and Lee Davison filling out the places. There was another yellow graded winner of heat two, with Aaron McNeilly this time underlining his ability with yet another victory. McAreavy and Irish Champion Denver Grattan filled the top three this time out.
An early yellow flag in the final, after McAreavy and Sean Mark hit trouble early on, gave a different complexion to the race, bringing the star men much closer to the front early on. Robinson went ahead at the resumption, but his lead was quickly whittled down by Grattan. Denver went in with the bumper to dislodge the leader, and cruised past to yet another final win over Robinson and Gary Chambers. Grattan now heads off to Lochgelly in Scotland where he will start at the front of the World Championship final later this month.

Portadown based National Hot Rod star Adam Hylands drove a perfect weekend in glorious weather at Hednesford Hills Raceway to land the formula's oldest title, the National Championship. Three consistent performances in his qualifying heats, where he carded two third places and a seventh, saw the former 2.0 Hot Rods multi-champion take pride of place at the head of the grid for the National final. Seasoned campaigner Keith Martin also excelled as he joined Hylands on the front row.

The 75 lap National Championship marathon saw Hylands dominate from start to finish, leading every lap to take a resounding success ahead of England's Carl Waller-Barrett and Scotland's Robert McDonald, with another Ulsterman, Derek Martin, in fourth.

The NHRPA Championship rounded off the day at Hednesford, with John Christie taking a very popular win in his rejuvenated Fiesta ahead of McDonald and Barrett.

There was also an excellent result in the Stock Rods National Championship for Gary Butler, who finished a close second behind England's John Smith. Gary is now all set for the step up to the 2.0 Hot Rods in the near future.

DMC Race Promotions would like to congratulate Adam, John and Gary on their excellent results. We would also like to wish Adam and his future wife Emma all the very best for their big day on Thursday.
