Portadown’s Gary Woolsey was the toast of Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night when he scooped the honours in Round 4 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods. On an evening when the perfect conditions led to some fast, thrilling racing, fellow Portadown ace Jordan Rochford took victory in the Grand Final of the Lightning Rods 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, and Glenavy’s Dan Shannon stormed home to win the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series for ProStocks. The other feature race wins at the McElmeel Mobility Group meeting fell to Stephen Stewart in the Superstox and young Max Hobson who completed a hat-trick to win the Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup.

Seventeen National Hot Rods came to grid for the fourth round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with the locals joined by English Series regular Bradley Dynes who was making a welcome trip back to his old stomping ground. Kenny McCann and Andrew Stewart disputed the early heat one lead, before losing out to Podge McQuaid. He though had no answer to the flying Shane Murray who stormed past to take the win over Carl Sloan and Keith Martin. Stewart went out front in heat two, with Simon Kennedy this time chasing hard in second. Gary Woolsey was making strides towards the front, relegating Kennedy to go second and bearing down on Stewart as the laps dwindled down. Stewart held on though for the win, with Woolsey and Kennedy completing the top three.
Murray had annexed pole position for the final, and quickly settled in to the lead ahead of Woolsey and Ulster Champion Glenn Bell. However only five laps in Murray ground to a halt on the Annaghmore Bend with mechanical issues, gifting the lead to Woolsey. Gary spent the rest of the race under pressure from Bell, but he was equal to it all and took the chequered flag to record a satisfying win. Bell, Derek Martin and Sloan were next home ahead of NI Champion Adam Hylands after what was a very fraught race in the midst of the pack.

The Lightning Rods contested two more qualifying heats before the Grand Final of the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, with last week’s final winner Dermot Tynan the first to show in the opening heat before losing out to Dylan McCann. The whole pack closed together as they headed into the final laps, with Martin O’Flaherty looking around the outside of the leader and Stephen Hollywood trying to get inside him at the same time! Hollywood and McCann tripped over each other which opened the way for O’Flaherty to claim the win, his first since rejoining the formula only a few weeks ago having been working abroad for some time. Tim Hazlett and Ricky Shaw completed the top three. Tynan again led for much of the second heat, with Vince Litter this time chasing him hard as they raced towards the chequered flag. Litter got a superb run on the outside line on the final lap, just pipping Tynan by the closest of margins to take the win, with Jordan Rochford in third.
The 2ke Engineering Challenge Series Grand Final was lined up on aggregate points from across the series, which handed Rochford pole position ahead of Mark Corry and Shaw. Rochford quickly stamped his authority on proceedings and pulled clear, as a huge scrap developed for second between Corry, Hazlett and Shaw. Corry was fighting a great rearguard action to keep the rest at bay, and even attracted attention from Race Control to tidy his racing line. Shaw took the bull by the horns and went for a great outside run over the final two laps, just failing to grab second by the slenderest of margins. Rochford meanwhile was well down the road, claiming an utterly dominant series win by some distance after a sublime performance. He took the trophy and two race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors, with Corry and Shaw completing the podium.

Welcome Scottish visitor Chris Hay joined the healthy grid of local Superstox for the second round of the NIOvalTV Series, and their final outing before the World Championship is staged at Tullyroan later in the month. Paddy Murphy set the pace from the white grade in the opening heat, leading until well after half distance when Portadown’s Stephen Stewart zipped past to take the victory
over Cyril Hawe and Keith McAreavey. Murphy and fellow white grader Brian Lammey held sway out front for some time in the second heat, before this time star man Lee Davison hit the front late on. Lee even survived a late race caution to take the win over Stewart and Kyle Beattie.
McAreavey led the feature final for some distance, with Stewart and Davison closing in late on to set up a grandstand finish. Davison hit trouble and retired with just five laps to go, leaving the way clear for Stewart to hit the front and take a decisive victory and earn himself a rise to the red grade for the next meeting. McAreavey was great value in second ahead of Sean Mark in third.

The ProStocks were contesting the Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series, and Bushmills man Dylan Booth took the flag in the opener before being excluded in post race scrutineering for a minor technical infringement. That handed the win to British Champion Dan Shannon over Norman Purdy, before Booth righted his wrong by taking victory in heat two. This time there were no drama at the post race checks, and he held onto the win ahead of Purdy and Steven Haugh.
Joe Largey and Shannon shared the front row for the final courtesy of the aggregate series points scoring, with Largey breaking clear early on before being reeled in by Shannon and Haugh. They both quickly found a way past before Largey spun out of contention. Shannon held on to record yet another title win and with it two new tyres from the series sponsors, with Haugh a gallant runner up. William McFaul claimed third after being caught up in a last lap melee that saw Mark McLaughlin and Purdy lose out.

The Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup was dominated by young Portadown starlet Max Hobson as he claimed victory in both heats and the final. Leyton Hughes and Lexi Crooks contested the lead in the opening heat, before Hobson arrived from the red grade to slip around the outside to take the win over Hughes and Crooks. Lauren Berry was chasing hard after Hughes and Crooks in heat two, but neither of the three had an answer to Hobson’s pace as he again roared by to take the win over Berry and Lacey Bevan.
From pole position Hobson was never challenged in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, that despite losing the lead off the line to Berry. As Hobson made the race his own with a dominant performance Bevan made a great outside pass on Berry nearing the end to take a very creditable second spot, with Lauren completing the podium in third.

The coveted Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy was the highlight of Saturday evening’s race meeting at Tullyroan Oval, and it was Portadown’s Adam Hylands who landed the silverware after an excellent performance in the 2.0 Hot Rods. There was some thrilling action from the 1300 Stock Cars as they contested the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series which fell the way of Birches star Robbie Wright. Ballymoney’s Lee McCloy won the special challenge event between the Thunder Rods and Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods, whilst the other feature race wins at the Cherry Pipes sponsored meeting fell to Dermot Tynan in the Lightning Rods and James Stewart in the Junior Productions.

Brian Cherry set the early pace in the opening heat for 2.0 Hot Rods ahead of the returning Mark Madill, but it was Allen Cherry who was the man on a mission. He quickly roared past to the lead and the win, tracked all the way home by Adam Hylands. Heat two was all about Ryan McClure, as he raced clear to take the win over defending champion Glenn Bell and Hylands.
Hylands and Bell were tied on points, with the toss of a coin giving Hylands pole spot for the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy Final. Bell hung on gamely for the opening few laps on the outside, but he had no answer to Hylands superb pace. The Portadown man drew clear to take the win and the fantastic trophy, with Bell and McClure the placemen.

The 1300 Stock Cars produced some outstanding action as they contested the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Jamie McCann and Robbie Wright contested the heat one lead into the final bend, their ensuing dust up only allowing Jon McQuillan to sneak through for the victory. Unfortunately Jon was later loaded up from the whole meeting for a technical infringement, meaning the win went to Wright over McCann. Ryan Stewart was the man who led the final stages of the second heat, before Wright went in hard into the final bend to take a great win.
Aggregate points from across the series lined up the final grid, with Wright on pole position. He was shifted wide by McCann early on before Peter Greer and Michael Logan also got involved as the bumpers flew in and the sparks were flying! Greer, Ryan Stewart and Logan all ended up hard in the wall as the action continued, with Robbie Wright coming home for the win after a fine recovery drive. His brother Davy Wright took second and Josh McKinstry third, with all three winning tyres courtesy of the series sponsor Ryan Wright Signs. After the superb final Ryan very kindly put up a cash prize for an extra Dash for Cash race at the end of the programme, which fell to Jamie McCann after another action packed outing.

The Thunder Rods were joined by a number of welcome travellers from Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods formula for a special challenge meeting. There was a great array of machinery on display, with David Gurney from Londonderry taking the first heat after holding off a strong Premier Rod challenge early on. Lee McCloy and James Goldie came through for second and third at the chequered flag. The second heat saw a morale boosting win for David Baird, with Gavin Gamble and Goldie next up.
The final saw McCloy and Goldie on the front row, with the duo setting off in that order out front. Goldie looked but wouldn’t commit to the outside pass, with Andrew McLean keeping a watching brief behind. It was becoming a really intriguing event, with nothing between the top cars and a large band of backmarkers looming ahead as they entered the final stages. The crowd were kept on their toes right to the end, with McCloy just getting the verdict ahead of Goldie, with a fantastic charge around the outside netting David Wilson third on the line. Joe Fitzgerald received a trophy as the top Premier Rods finisher.

An excellent field of Lightning Rods saw a debut for James McKinney amongst the 21 car grid, and they produced some superb racing all evening. Dermot Tynan set the early pace in heat one but lost out mid race to a flying European Champion Jordan Rochford, who went on to win despite a late race caution period, with Dylan McCann and Scott Cochrane next home. Heat two saw a big turn three crash for Mark Corry and Scott Cochrane, as Irish Champion Nigel Jackson took the win ahead of Rochford and World Champion Gordy McKee.
Novice graders Tynan and McKinney set an excellent pace at the start of the final, with Tynan especially looking very good indeed. Rochford was again making great strides towards the front, and once he got to third was still almost half a lap in arrears. He quickly got the hammer down and reduced the deficit, slipping past McKinney to go second. With backmarkers between them Tynan was just able to hang on to record a fantastic final victory after a great drive, with Rochford excellent value in second and McKee and Jackson next home.

Aaron Ward drove superbly to win the opening Junior Productions heat, heading home Sam Percy and James Stewart with a great dice in the pack between Adam Weir, Adam McFall and Graham Meek. Stewart took a clear heat two victory over Matthew Nicholl and Sam McNeice, before James repeated the feat in the final to take a great win and earn a rise to the blue grade for the next meeting. Ward and Irish Champion Drew McKeown were next home after another positive night from the stars of tomorrow.

Kells driver Shane McMillan continued his superb summer in the Spedeworth Stock Rods by taking a great victory in a riveting British Championship at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening. In a title race blighted by heavy rain, Shane kept his cool to hold off a quality field from right across the British Isles. On a full evening of championship race action, kindly sponsored by S McAfee & Son of Ballymena, there was also a British Championship win, this time in the ProStocks, for Glenavy’s Dan Shannon whilst Ballymena’s Adam McFall was victorious in the inaugural Irish Open Championship for the Junior Productions. Glenn Bell was the winner of the National Hot Rods final, with fellow Portadown driver Davy Wright victorious in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The action then switched to Tullyroan Oval on Sunday, where Falkirk’s Chris Lattka won a fiercely contested Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup from a quality entry, whilst fellow Scot Bailey Millar won the Keir Millar Memorial Trophy for the Ninja Karts. To make it a tartan trio, David Frame from Lanarkshire took the victory in the Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup. The only local winner at the meeting, sponsored by Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm, was Glenavy’s Dan Shannon in the ProStocks Irish Open Championship, as County Waterford’s Pat Casey took the other feature race win in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

Thirty three Stock Rods came under starters orders for their British Championship qualifying, with defending champion Chris ‘Gunner’ Lattka from Scotland the first to show in heat one. He lost out to a fast moving former World Champion Stevie McNiece, as the Enniskillen driver took the win over Shane McMillan and Chris Hamill. Heat two saw Cambridgeshire’s Daniel Rea set the pace for much of the distance before Ballymena’s experienced Micky McFall slipped past to take the victory ahead of Ahoghill’s World Champion Marc Morrell and Rea. The final heat saw a fine win for Scottish lady racer Siobhan Martin, who raced home to the flag after outfoxing Jonny Cardwell on a now sodden track.
The track was awash as they took the green flag to get the British Championship final underway, with pole sitter Morrell taking up the gauntlet ahead of Martin. Siobhan looked the quicker of the two, but when she eventually went for the outside pass she lost out and fell down the field. McMillan assumed second before Morrell sensationally went out with a broken driveshaft.
A caution quickly followed for a Brown Trout Bend incident, with McMillan assuming the lead on the restart ahead of Cardwell, Englishman Rea and Ballymena veteran Victor McAfee. McAfee was looking on top form, but he and Cardwell eventually tangled which eliminated both from proceedings. A great recovery drive from Martin brought her right back onto the leader’s tail, but McMillan had all under control as he rounded out the final laps to take the British Championship title. Scotland’s Martin and Moira’s Stuart Agnew completed the podium, with another two Scots in Gary Dean and Lattka next over the line ahead of Rea at the end of a superb title race.

On Sunday another great field of Stock Rods arrived to do battle for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. The opening heat saw the first of the Scottish wins of the day, as Gary Dean held off allcomers to take the flag. Chris Hamill grabbed second late on after Siobhan Martin got into trouble on the back straight. Heat two saw a flag to flag win for the Limerick’s Colm O’Sullivan, with a great places battle falling to Samuel Montgomery ahead of Jonny Cardwell and Surrey’s Eric Walker.
O’Sullivan assumed the lead in the final with the pack squabbling at his heels for the opening few laps. Lattka then seized his chance when O’Sullivan was forced wide, darting ahead to a lead he held right to the flag. England’s Matt Woodcock inherited second and Dean third for a mainland top three, after Hamill was docked from third to fifth for his part in O’Sullivan’s demise during the race.

An influx of Scottish visitors arrived to do battle for the ProStocks British Championship at Aghadowey, with the reverse grid qualifiers falling to twice former British winner Steven Haugh and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. They were not without their drama, and the title race would be no different!
Shannon led from the off ahead of Scottish ace Paul Barron as Haugh went out early on. Joe Largey was making a great effort from down the grid, helped by a number of caution periods, whilst Shannon was executing his restarts perfectly each time to get the break away from the bumpers behind him each time. Shannon was in determined mood and romped home to the title, with Largey great value in second ahead of Barron and Dylan Booth.

At Tullyroan the opening Irish Open Championship qualifier for the ProStocks fell to Glenavy’s Dan Shannon, who picked up where he left off the night before having won the British title at Aghadowey. Adam White and William McFaul chased him home, before Dylan Booth took the second heat ahead of Scotland’s Paul Barron and White.
A great battle for the lead between the trio of Shannon, McFaul and White thrilled the fans during the opening laps of the Irish Open Championship, before White and McFaul found themselves buried hard in the turn four wall. Shannon pulled clear to take his second title of the weekend in some style, as a great battle for second ensued behind him as the positions swapped time and again. Booth was ahead when it mattered most and took the runner up slot behind Shannon, with Barron in third.


Round three of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for the National Hot Rods at Aghadowey saw three fantastic races, with Lurgan’s Ian McReynolds setting the early pace before the closing pack joined him in the closing stages. There was nothing between the top four as they crossed the line in a blanket finish, with McReynolds just holding on ahead of Glenn Bell, John Christie and Mark Heatrick. Heatrick romped home to the heat two victory, whilst behind an awesome battle for second fell to Derek Martin ahead of Christie and the impressive Podge McQuaid.
The drivers had to contend with the worst of the conditions in the final, with Heatrick the early leader from pole position before losing out to a fast moving Martin. Bell was quickly onto Martin’s rear bumper, and the former World Champ seized his chance in amongst backmarking traffic. Bell literally sailed home to the win as the rain became torrential, with Martin, Christie and Jaimie McCurdy rounding out the places.

The first ever Junior Productions Irish Open Championship saw Koddi Wright from Scotland join the locals on the Aghadowey grid, with the keenly contested qualifying heats falling to Graham Meek and Sam McNeice.
Adam McFall had done enough to take pole position for the Irish Open final, and he grabbed the early lead over Drew McKeown and Matthew Nicholl. Nicholl slipped past McKeown in the tough conditions to go second, but he had no answer to McFall who entered the history books as the formula’s first ever Irish Open Champion. Nicholl and McKeown rounded out the podium places.

There were three action packed races for the Ninja Karts at Tullyroan as they contested the Keir Millar Memorial Trophy, held in memory of the young Scottish star who was cruelly taken from us a few years ago. His cousin Bailey Millar inherited the first heat win after Toby Tyson from Cumbria was docked for contact during the race. Millar then powered home to the win in heat two to guarantee himself pole position for the final.
Millar lost out to Tyson off the line in the final, but he quickly swooped back ahead to race home to take the memorial trophy is some style. It was a very emotional win as Bailey hoisted aloft the huge Keir Millar Memorial Trophy in memory of his cousin. Max Hobson took a gallant second ahead of Tyson in third.

An excellent turnout of Superstox at Tullyroan included a debut for Ally Neill and a return for Darren Bevan after some time away, and it was welcome Scottish visitor David Frame who came through the field to land the opening heat victory over Chris McArdle and Lee Davison. There was a very welcome first ever win for Jackie Harris in the second heat, the former Hillclimb and Sprint Champion showing the rest a clean pair of heels in his immaculate car to lead home McArdle and Frame.
Frame quickly went ahead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Davison giving his all to stay in touch. As they headed for the last bend Davison went in with a huge lunge, making contact but failing to dislodge Frame from the lead. David thus took the title win, with Davison and Kyle Beattie completing the top three. A special Dash for Cash race, jointly sponsored by the Moffett Family and LMC Trade Sales, concluded the day and fell the way of Davison after novice Brian Lammey had led for much of the distance.

Mervyn Emerson made the most of his yellow grading to take the opening heat win in the 2.0 Hot Rods at Tullyroan, holding off British Champion Stuart Cochrane and Brian Cherry at the flag. Cherry improved in the second heat to take the win over Emerson and European Champion Adam Hylands.
The final looked as though it would boil down to a fight between Emerson and Hylands for the silverware, as the duo lapped side by side whilst battling for the lead. An awkward touch between the two heading out to the back straight saw them both career out of control, glancing the wall and spinning out of contention. The opened the door for Pat Casey, and the Co Waterford man duly accepted the lead and the win to make his long journey home even sweeter! Gary Wilson and Conor Hughes were second and third after a great battle for many of the closing laps.

An excellent entry of 1300 Stock Cars rounded off the Aghadowey programme, with some fine action on show all evening. Former ProStocks ace Davy Wright grabbed the opening heat win ahead of impressive novice grader Lee Topping, before Jamie McCann had an excellent run to glory in heat two over Robbie Wright and Nicky Lowry. The final was run in awful conditions, with Davy Wright grabbing his second win of the evening to earn himself a rise in grade for the next meeting. Jack Kearney had a fine run to second ahead of Willie Stewart and Robbie Wright.
