For the second meeting in succession at Aghadowey Oval there was a Scottish winner in the programme's feature event, as young Charlie Hardie landed the Ninja Karts King of Aghadowey trophy after a fantastic lead battle with Broughshane's Jay Clyde. During the rest of the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting, there were also heat and final doubles for Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Stephen McCready (ProStocks), Adam McFall (Junior Productions) and Curtis Greer (Thunder Rods).

The Ninja Karts lined up in graded order for their heats, with the points scored during the two qualifiers forming the grid for the King of Aghadowey final. Bobby Henderson set the initial pace in the opening heat, and the impressive white grader held sway at the front for much of the race distance. He couldn't hold back Charlie Hardie though, as the young Scot swooped by to take the victory ahead of Henderson and Megan Murray. If the opener was good, then the second heat was even better as Daniel Stewart took the early lead ahead of Henderson. Many eyes were on a ferocious battle between Hardie and top local runner Jay Clyde as they blasted through the field from their rear of the grid starts. They swapped places a number of times and arrived amongst the leaders as the finish approached. With backmarkers involved too it was Megan Murray who claimed her first ever win in the formula, just a few weeks before she is forced to retire having reached the upper age limit. Stewart, Hardie and Lily Gallagher rounded out the top four.
Murray, Hardie and Henderson shared the front row for the final, and following an early stoppage for a crash it was all about just two drivers - Hardie and Clyde. In a tremendous battle the duo were barely separated for the whole distance, and a gaggle of backmarkers saw Hardie go outside and Clyde swoop inside to take the lead. It looked as though the local lad would hold on for the win, but Hardie out-fumbled him in more backmarkers within sight of the flag to take a sensational King of Aghadowey victory by the narrowest of margins. Callum Magill took third spot whilst long distance traveller Cole McGann from Cork was awarded the TwoZeroSix Personal Training Most Improved Driver award. The youngsters produced some thrilling racing throughout the evening, with each and every one of them deserving credit.

It was the opening round of the M.O. Auto Repairs Challenge Series for Lightning Rods, and they started with a controversial opening heat. Jordan Rochford came from the front row of the star grade to take the win, but second on the road Aaron Stewart was initially docked for contact during the race which later became a load up from the meeting for venting his anger at the decision with some horrendous antics on track - all whilst the Ninja Karts were lining up for the next race. That elevated World Champion Scott Cochrane to second ahead of Alastair Stewart. Series sponsor Mark Overend again set the pace in heat two, before losing out to stable mate Mark Corry. Despite great pressure from behind and a late race caution period, Corry held on for a deserved win over Alastair Stewart and Mark McCambridge.
The final saw Rochford quickly move clear at the front, with the Portadown ace in command from flag to flag. Alastair Stewart kept him honest all the way for a very creditable second, with Gary Beggs getting the best of a big fight for third place. Rochford received a new Yokohama tyre courtesy of the series sponsors for his win.

With the World Cup at the venue later in the year, it was no surprise to see a big field of almost 25 ProStocks in action in the opening round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series. Amongst those were former World Cup Champion Ryan Abernethy, with fellow star man Raymond Harper also making a comeback and Thunder Rods Irish Champion Del McLaughlin making the switch across. There was action galore all around the raceway right from the off, but novice Jordan McCann showed some fine talent to pull clear for a very impressive win ahead of Davy Wright and Stephen McCready. McCann again led heat two for much of the way, before McCready slipped by to take up the running. McCann gallantly fought back but couldn't unseat the star man from the lead, as the Antrim ace took a great win over McCann and Stephen Boyd.
Aggregate points from the heats formed the grid for the final, with McCann the early leader as they were all brought up short when Fionn Donnelly was left stranded on the back straight. McCann had no answer to McCready on the restart, as 'Speedy' went by and on to the victory. Wright and Boyd filled the podium places, with McCann marking himself down as one to watch this season with fourth spot. McCready also received a new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, McElmeel Mobility Services.

The Junior Productions for the 10-16 year olds are turning out to be a very competitive formula in 2016, with a number of rapid graduates from the Ninja Karts joining the established regulars. The former Ninja Karters shared the spoils during the evening, with Ballymena's Adam McFall taking the opening heat win over Graham Meek and Irish Champion Drew McKeown. Reigning British Ninja Karts Champion Sam McNeice held off some great pressure from behind to land his first Junior win in heat two, leading home McKeown and Meek this time.
McFall was able to make an early escape from the pack to lead the final, with McNeice initially second ahead of Adam Weir. Weir made the runner up spot his, but was unable to close the gap to McFall who took the flag for his second win of the day and to book a rise to the yellow grade for the next meeting. McKeown, Shea Duff and David Gurney all had an untidy coming together, leaving Weir to take second ahead of Meek.

Roger Glass held the lead for much of the opening heat in the Thunder Rods, but Curtis Greer nipped past in the closing stages to take the win over Lee McCloy and Glass. Roger again set the pace in heat two, this time holding on until just two laps from the end when John Goligher edged ahead to take his first ever race victory. Greer managed to snatch second ahead of McCloy at the line.
The star graders again failed to make an impact in the final, with Greer this time powering past Glass on lap seven to take up the running. There was a caution period when Peter Henderson and Lee Booth had a nasty coming together on the entrance to the back straight, but Greer didn't let that affect him as he powered to the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored silverware. McCloy and Samuel Montgomery filled out the top three.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hollytree Rare Breed Farm

Shamwreck 2016 brought a near capacity crowd to Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, with competitors on the grid from Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Holland and Belgium. With many of Europe's finest stars in action the entertainment was of the highest standard all afternoon, with the south of England's Kieron Fry storming through to take the Shamwreck title in emphatic style. A full programme of support racing at the Cherry Pipes Ltd sponsored meeting saw victories for Portadown's Stuart Cochrane in the 2.0 Hot Rods, Ballymena's Peter Greer in the entertaining 1300 Stock Cars and Antrim's Stephen McCready in the ProStocks.

Split heats were the order of the day for the quality National Bangers entry, with the first qualifier falling to defending Shamwreck champion Tom Waller from Essex. He quickly set down a marker that he wasn't for giving up his title easily with a great win ahead of fellow English stars Kieron Fry and Shane Fry from The Bears. The second wave of cars gridded for heat two, and there were soon red flags flying when Rod Herron got into all sorts of bother on turn four and rolled his Toyota Previa. At the restart England's Jack Deacon powered ahead to take victory over Dublin ace Steven Reynolds and former champion Mike Flaherty, making it a double heat victory for the Essex boys.

The Shamwreck 2016 Final paired Waller and Deacon on the front row, and showing great pace they quickly broke clear. The huge field were producing some manic action all around the raceway, and The Bears quickly set about removing the leaders from the race. That they succeeded in, and as the blows rained in all round it was Kieron Fry who moved ahead. As the laps dwindled down he had all under control, taking the flag with victory clenched salute out of the window such was his delight! Fellow Englishman Dave Gibson was a gallant runner up, with Reynolds the leading home driver in third. All three received a great welcome on their victory lap, with Reynolds then making the day of young race fan Dale Quinn by handing him his trophy in a terrific gesture.

If the final had been electric on track, the Allcomers race was even better. A huge wrecking train on turn three saw some very destroyed cars, most notably for Graham Howell and Kieran McIvor with Stevo McGrath also involved. At the end of a bruising encounter there were only two classified finishers, both from The Bears, with teenager Josh Spokes taking the win followed across the line by none other than his Grandad Nigel Riley.
The James 'The Cat' Smith Memorial Destruction Derby rounded off the day's activities, with some monster hits handed out right from the off. Ashley Riley destroyed Chris Spiers from The Levellers on the turnstyle end, before Ashley and Welshman Dan Buckley had another mammoth clash. It was 'Ace Ash' who managed to keep his car going longest though, taking another victory for The Bears. He also received the Entertainer of the Day award, Best Car went to Stevo McGrath for his Canadian Rambler Rebel Wagon, Best Presented Car went to Jack Deacon and Best Wreck to Graham Howell.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods took to the circuit, with some drivers obviously not fancying the difficult track conditions left behind by the Bangers. Stuart Cochrane quickly moved ahead in the opener and would never be caught, with Stephen Emerson getting a great run from the star grade to take second ahead of his brother Mervyn. Mervyn, final winner last time out, went one better in the second heat to record yet another victory, with Cochrane this time in second ahead of Allen Cherry.
Sean Dynes was the early pacesetter in the Cherry Pipes sponsored final, before he lost out to Cochrane on what was a very slippery raceway thanks to the first rain of the afternoon. Former double World Champion Wayne Woolsey moved through to second, and despite heaping pressure on Cochrane in the latter stages the young Portadown man held on for a great victory. Woolsey, S Emerson and Feargal McNally rounded out the places.

Fourteen 1300 Stock Cars showed that with decent fields they can produce some excellent racing, with the entry bolstered by welcome Scottish visitor Lee Buchan leading to action aplenty in all of their races. Adrian McKinstry in his Toyota Starlet set the pace in the opener, but he had no answer to the flying Peter Greer. He took up the running and grabbed the victory over Jon McQuillan's pristine new machine and Michael Logan. McKinstry led again in heat two before losing out to McQuillan, but both were powerless to stop the charge of star grader Aaron Rainey who bumpered his way past to take a telling win. McQuillan, Bradley Woods and Irish Champion Ryan Stewart filled the places.
McKinstry again was the first to show in the final but lost out to Woods, before Greer swept by both to take up the mantle. Woods had other ideas though, and charged back at Greer to resume his position at the head of the field. McKinstry was sniffing the possibility of removing both, but Greer landed a telling blow on Woods to steal though to snatch the win on the last lap. Woods and McKinstry filled the podium, with Buchan carding his best result of the day in fourth.

Two welcome Scottish visitors in Tam Melrose and Ricky White bolstered the ranks of the ProStocks, with novice grader William McFaul powering ahead to grab the opening heat win from Stephen McCready and Robbie Wright. McFaul again took the flag in heat two to earn him an automatic upgrade to yellow top for the final. There was a superb three way battle for second, which went the way of McCready ahead of World Champion Steven Haugh and Stephen Boyd.
Newcomer Jonathan White lead the opening exchanges of the final, before a squabbling Leonard Dunn and McFaul powered by. Their battling allowed the rapid McCready into contention from the star grade, and after two runner up slots in the heats he starred in this one with a tremendous drive to victory. McFaul and Boyd filled out the top three, ahead of Haugh and Dunn.

A fantastic five formula feast of race action had a bumper crowd flocking to Aghadowey Oval on Easter Monday afternoon. The 2016 Irish Masters for the Stock Rods was the big title on offer, and it went across the Irish Sea as Scottish ace Chris Lattka took a win after a fantastic final. In the National Hot Rods World Championship qualifying round Broughshane teenager Jaimie McCurdy shrugged off a huge crash on Good Friday to bounce back to a heat and final double, whilst there were also victories during the Murrays of Randalstown sponsored event for Denver Grattan (Superstox), Chrissy Dempsey (Thunder Rods) and Jay Clyde (Ninja Karts).

A cosmopolitan field arrived for the Stock Rods Irish Masters, including visitors from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. Scottish Champion Siobhan Martin took the early lead in heat one before losing out to fellow tartan traveller Chris Lattka. The five times World Champion rushed ahead to take the victory, leading home Victor McAfee and Martin at the flag. The reversed grid second heat saw another former World Champion, Ballymena's Chris Gordon, set the pace from flag to flag for a morale boosting win, ahead of National Champion Derek McMillan and Ed Davis.
The final saw McMillan qualify on pole position, and he quickly settled into the lead but was soon under pressure from Lattka. There then developed an absolutely epic battle for the lead, which at times saw almost the whole field circulating in one pack. Lattka could find no way past to the lead, but was almost glued to leaders back bumper, with Gordon keeping a watching brief in third. Then came an almighty charge from Irish Champion Jonny Cardwell, who took to the wide outside and pulled himself past Gordon and right alongside Lattka. With the crowd willing him on in what was a very courageous drive, he then got himself right alongside McMillan too for the lead, only for both to run slightly wide out onto the back straight. An experienced campaigner like Lattka was never going to miss an opportunity like that, and nipped up the inside to take the lead in a three abreast moment into the Brown Trout Bend. McMillan and Cardwell got shuffled down the pack, and then Gordon almost got inside Lattka down the home straight! The Scot just held on and duly took the flag for his second title victory of the weekend, having won the Irish Open title at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. Gordon could be well pleased with his runner up spot, with the impressive Davis taking a fine third after a thrilling championship final.

Conor McElmeel debuted a stunning Vauxhall Tigra in Round Nine of the National Hot Rods PC Paints & Components World Series NI, whilst many eyes were on Jaimie McCurdy who had worked wonders with his team to repair huge damage incurred at the Good Friday event at Ballymena. Ben McKee set the early pace in the opening heat, but as the closing stages loomed the Templepatrick man had McCurdy right on his tail. Right throughout the final three laps the duo were locked side by side, with McKee just getting the nod on the line by a mere 0.005 of a second! McCurdy was on McKee's case much earlier in heat two, slipping ahead inside the first five laps to breeze to an easy win ahead of McKee, with Gilford's Nigel McCauley taking his second third place finish of the day. There was plenty of great racing right down the pack in this one, with Derek Martin catching the eye along with Gary Woolsey, the latter spending many laps on the outside of Stewart Doak before snatching the place on the line.
The final paired McKee and McCurdy on the front row, with the Broughshane teenager getting a great jump at the green flag to take up the running. It had been a long and arduous weekend for McCurdy and his team as they repaired an almost destroyed car, but Jaimie made it all worthwhile as he powered to his second win of the day, and in some style too. Keith Martin came through for a deserved second, ahead of McCauley and Adam Maxwell, the latter after a great four abreast move into turn three early in the race.

Amongst the Superstox field were debuts for Adam Lockhart and Sean Mark, alongside the brand new RCE engineered car of Andrew Morrow. Mark impressed right from the off and will be a great asset to the formula, leading until three to go when Morrow surged past into the lead. Ryan McClure was right in contention too, and he landed a text book blow with the bumper on Morrow into the last corner to take a great win. Mark again led heat two for much of the distance, with McClure again leaving it late to nip past to the win on the final lap. Mark took second ahead of Irish Champion Denver Grattan.
The longer distance of the final again saw Mark again leading for much of the duration, after relegating early leader Cyril Hawe. Once again McClure reeled in the leader to go ahead, but he had no answer to the flying Grattan, who swept past on the final lap to take the win. McClure was eliminated from second due to a minor technical infringement, elevating Mark to the runner up slot ahead of Conor Murphy.

Novice Chrissy Dempsey held off late pressure from Lee McCloy to take the flag in the opening Thunder Rod encounter, only to lose the win in the scrutineering bay due to a wheel camber infringement. That handed the victory to McCloy ahead of Adam White and Del McLaughlin. Dempsey made no mistake in heat two, this time holding on to his win ahead of McCloy and Samuel Montgomery. There was drama mid race when Samuel Murphy was unceremoniously dumped into the turn one wall, which led to White being disqualified.
Dempsey again led the final away, and despite the best efforts of McCloy he held on to take the Murrays of Randalstown sponsored trophy. Montgomery was again third ahead of Norman Purdy and Irish Champion McLaughlin.

The young stars of tomorrow in the Ninja Karts completed the packed race programme, with local driver Bobby Henderson taking the opening heat win over the new machine of Stewart Hanna and Jay Clyde. Henderson and Jack Morrow clashed nearing the end of the second heat, opening the door for Sam Percy to take the win ahead of Morrow and star grader Clyde.
The final saw Daniel Stewart lead the way until half distance, before a stoppage brought the faster karts right into contention for the restart. Henderson then swept ahead, but had no answer to the flying Clyde who took the flag to seal an emphatic victory and lift the trophy. Stewart was awarded the TwoZeroSix Personal Training 'Most Improved Driver' trophy, whilst 2016 NI Points Championship sponsors ASC Cars presented all the young drivers with Easter eggs to mark their great efforts on track.
