The Big Van Bangers thrilled the large festive crowd at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday afternoon, with some excellent action served up on track. Dungannon's Uel Reid steered his way through the mayhem to grab the Van-dalism title on his first ever outing, whilst Ian Bolton landed his sixth Reliant Robins Irish Championship. Other feature race winners at the Cirrus Plastics sponsored meeting were Tam Agnew (Lightning Rods), Stephen Murray (Rookie Bangers) and David Beattie (Superstox).

An excellent entry of Big Van Bangers arrived to chase the Van-dalism title, with the action starting straight away as Stevo McGrath gave Irish Champion Leonard Dunn a heavy fencing on the Annaghmore Bend. Dunn picked up some heavy damage as World Banger Champion Steven Bolton and newc omer Uel Reid contested the lead. Dungannon man Reid came through to claim the win as Bolton floundered late on. Dublin's Paul Gaffney entertained in the Allcomers event as he used his huge van to stop everyone else. The one who avoided the chaos was Davy Patton, the Armagh man taking the chequered flag in his Transit.
There was more superb entertainment in the Destruction Derby, with Gaffney demolishing everything in his way to claim the win. Conor Kelly took quite a battering and it earned him the Best Wreck trophy, with Gaffney also taking the Entertainer of the Day trophy.

Neil Martin set the early pace in the Reliant Robins 2017 Irish Championship title race, the points champion squabbling with Ian Bolton and John Stewart for the early laps. Bolton was mastering the slippery conditions to perfection, and he powered past on the wide outside line to land his sixth Irish title win in great style. Stewart and Martin filled out the podium, with Martin later on winning the Irish Revenge race after a great tussle.

Former ProStocks World Champion Tam Agnew was the star of the Lightning Rods as he took a brace of wins including the feature race final. In the first heat Tam pulled clear to record the win over star men Richard Stewart, Nigel Jackson and Jordan Rochford. Despite leading most of the way in the second heat, Magheralin's Agnew lost out late on as Jonny McMillan slipped through for the win ahead of Vince Litter and Agnew.
Agnew again stretched clear in the final, only to see his lead wiped out by a caution period when Martin O'Donovan struck the turn one wall. That brought Litter, Jackson and Stewart right into the mix but Agnew was equal to it all and powered home for his second win of the day. Litter, Jackson, Stewart and Ricky Shaw filled the places.

The biggest field of Rookie Bangers to date put on three excellent races, with plenty of nudging and spinning all around the raceway. Conor Finegan powered home to the heat one victory in his Honda ahead of Mark Kierans, before Stephen Murray emerged out of the pack to take the chequered flag in heat two over Christy Bradley.
Murray made no mistake in the Cirrus Plastics sponsored final, surging clear to take his second win of the day over Finegan and David Mooney as the Rookies once again impressed many.

With no star graders present the lower graded drivers had a chance to shine in the Superstox, with James Logan powering through to take victory in the opening race of the day ahead of James Turkinston. Turkington went one better in the second heat, taking the win over Gregg Hyndman and Sean Mark. The final belonged to David Beattie, as he stamped his authority all over proceedings with an emphatic win. Hyndman, Turkington and Mark filled out the places.

The spectacular Caravan Destruction Derby was the highlight of the Boxing Day meeting at Aghadowey Oval, which saw a big crowd brave the elements for an afternoon of festive racing. Coagh supremo Dessie Dallas once again mastered the Caravan DD to take the victory, with Kells ace Derek McMillan coming out on top in the competitive Stock Rods division. The other feature race wins at the Autoworx of Ballymoney sponsored meeting fell to Norman Purdy (Thunder Rods), Matthew Weir (Ninja Karts), Aaron Ward (Junior Productions) and William Donnell (ProStocks).

A healthy field of 10 cars and caravans took to the grid to battle it out for the annual Boxing Day Caravan Derby, with former National Hot Rod World Champion Adam Maxwell and Saloon Stock Car star Kieran McIvor amongst the ranks. The star duo quickly got stuck in, with Kieran actually getting up and inside Adam's caravan at one stage before eventually breaking free. The carnage around the track was colossal, and it boiled down to a three way fight between Dessie Dallas, Ken Boyd and Jamie Tannahill. Dallas landed the telling blows to continue his winning streak in the derbies, with Boyd and Tannahill losing out late on.


Vital World Championship qualifying points were on offer for the Stock Rods, and it was current World Champion Marc Morrell who produced an outstanding drive to land the opening heat win over Derek McMillan and Irish Champion Victor McAfee. Heat two was controversial to say the least, as the lead trio of Derek McMillan, Morrell and Shane McMillan got involved in a heated battle during which all three overstepped the boundaries. They were all penalised to some extent at the conclusion, which elevated Ed Davis to the victory. The final saw another excellent battle, thankfully much more sportsmanlike this time, from which Derek McMillan charged home to record an excellent success over his brother Shane and Morrell at the end of a toughly fought afternoon for the formula.

Ballybogey's Norman Purdy was the star turn in the Thunder Rods, as he grabbed a brace of wins including the final. He was in fact first over the line in all three races, only to fall foul of the stewards and get docked for contact in the second heat. David Baird chased Purdy over the line in the opener, before again having to settle for second when Samuel Montgomery inherited the heat two win after Purdy's penalty. Baird again took runner up slot in the final after leading much of the distance, but he was unable to stave off the advances of Purdy who nipped ahead in the closing stages to grab the silverware.

The Ninja Karts also entertained with three excellent races, with both heats falling the way of the eye catching Max Hobson. Daniel Stewart and Lauren Berry chased Max home in the first heat, before Lacey Bevan and Rhea McConkey filled out the top three in heat two. Heat two also saw a monumental rollover for Curtis McConkey on turn four, from which he fortunately escaped unhurt. Some sterling pit work even saw Curtis return for the feature final, which was blown wide open when favourute Hobson went out after tangling with Bevan whilst contesting the lead. Matthew Weir nipped ahead and drove the race of his life to take his first ever final victory in some style, ahead of a splendid effort from Curtis McConkey and Ryan Berry.

The ProStocks and Junior Productions were both down in numbers for this off-season outing. Irish Champion Dan Shannon battled to two heat wins in the ProStocks before being despatched in the final by Stephen Boyd. Boyd kept his ailing car ahead for much of the distance, but William Donnell landed a telling blow on the final bend to snatch the win. In the Junior Productions Matthew Nicholl and Sam McNeice shared the heat wins, before Aaron Ward took his first final win in the category by just holding off McNeice at the flag.
