The 2016 race season at Tullyroan Oval kicked off in bitterly cold conditions on Saturday night, but the drivers still managed to provide some red hot action on track to entertain the hardy fans. The main event of the JMC Mechanical & Construction sponsored meeting was the 2016 Stock Rods Irish Open Championship, which saw Scottish ace Chris Lattka successfully defend his title. Antrim's Mervyn Emerson took first blood of the season in the 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst there were also feature race wins for Carrick's Gary Beggs (Lightning Rods), Birches star Steven Haugh (ProStocks) and Banbridge teenager Gareth Halliday (Junior Productions).

An excellent field of Stock Rods were boosted by Scottish trio Chris Lattka, Jonathan Lattka and Siobhan Martin for the Irish open Championship. Robert McIlroy, a recent newcomer to the formula, led the opening heat away from pole position and surprised many be holding the top spot all the way to the flag. Unfortunately for Robert though he failed the post race technical checks, which elevated Jonathan Lattka to the victory over Gary Butler and Micky McFall. Irish Champion Jonny Cardwell had a flag to flag win in heat two, but that only told half the story. Former European Champion Stevie McNiece challenged him for much of the way, and only lost second spot to the Race Stewards at the end for a jump start. That elevated Chris Lattka to second ahead of the UK's leading female racer Martin.
Chris Lattka and Gary Butler had tied for pole position, with a draw handing Scotsman 'Gunner' the advantage of starting in grid slot one. Despite early pressure from Butler, Lattka edged away ever so slowly, until the field was brought short for a turn three incident involving Chris Gordon amongst others. By now Cardwell had made it through to second, and the battle was now well and truly on for the top spot. Gunner defended resolutely as Cardwell hit the wide outside line over the final laps. He pulled right alongside Lattka, but the Falkirk flyer used all his experience to thwart any move and came home to take the Irish Open crown for the second year in succession. Cardwell and McNiece rounded out the podium, with Jonathan Lattka in fourth after a sensational final.

There was a welcome return to racing for former Super Rods World Champion Colin McFarland, as he debuted a pristine new 2.0 Hot Rod amongst a healthy field for their opening event of 2016. It was his son Dean who set the early pace in the opening heat before succumbing to pressure from Stuart Cochrane. The Portadown driver went on to take the win, and peculiarly wouldn't be seen again all evening so there were obviously some underlying mechanical issues. Irish Champion Stephen Emerson copped a disqualification late on when he clashed with Dean McFarland, leaving his brother Mervyn Emerson to snatch second ahead of Adam Best, after Adam Heatrick was docked places for contact in the race. A fine drive in heat two netted victory for Lee McCracken, with Mervyn Emerson taking his second runner up spot of the evening. In third and fourth came Joel Richardson and Wayne Woolsey, both looking very fast indeed under the Tullyroan floodlights.
Mervyn Emerson had more than impressed in the heats, and he quickly hit the front in the final to surge into a lead he would never lose. A huge battle for second spot grabbed most of the attention, but Mervyn simply swept all before him to take a morale boosting win on the first night of the new campaign. Heatrick got the better of the pack to finish second but was handed a huge four place penalty for contact, which elevated Best to second ahead of Allen Cherry and Stephen Emerson.

World Champion Scott Cochrane, fellow star man Aaron Stewart, Ally Neill and Adam McCann all debuted superbly presented new cars in the Lightning Rods, with impressive novice Mark Overend the first to show in the opening heat. Neill then took up the running, but he had no answer to Alastair Stewart who breezed past to take the win over a very sharp looking Winston Weir with Gary Beggs in third.
The rest of the evening belonged to Beggs, and he demoted early pacesetter Overend approaching half distance to take the heat two victory. Neill was docked two places from second for contact, handing the runner up position to Mark Corry with Cochrane third. Beggs hit the front early on in the final and pulled clear to take a comprehensive win, and a great drive from Weir landing him second ahead of Neill and 2015 points champion Richard Stewart.

The budget ProStocks again broke the twenty car barrier, and it was newcomer William McFaul who led the opening laps of their first heat before losing out to a fast charging Leonard Dunn. Dunn took the win over McFaul and Liam McShane, before McFaul made amends by taking the heat two win over McShane and Adam McCready.
McFaul and then Dunn were the early leaders of an action packed final which saw a number of caution periods, before star man Stephen McCready took up the running before half distance. Dunn came right back at him however, spinning the leader and taking both out of the running. That handed the lead to Robbie Wright, but he was being tracked by World Champion Steven Haugh who had missed both heat races earlier in the evening. Haugh bided his time before dealing Wright a telling blow on the final lap to steal through for a commendable win, with Wright second ahead of Raymond Gurney.

Ninja Kart graduates Adam McFall, Jack Hazlett and Sam McNeice boosted the Junior Productions ranks, and it was Hazlett who showed them all a clean pair of heels to take the victory in his first ever race in the formula in heat one. Graham Meek and Irish Champion Drew McKeown filled out the top three, before there was another impressive debut win for McFall in heat two over Hazlett. Shea Duff took third after Adam Weir was one of five drivers docked places for jumping the start.
The final was entertaining too, if a little scrappy, as the young drivers at times allowed their enthusiasm to boil over. Meek pulled well clear and looked odds on for the win only to see a late caution eradicate his lead. Duff tangled with McKeown before hitting the front and taking the chequered flag, but he was demoted to third spot for contact and jumping a restart which handed victory to a delighted Gareth Halliday with McKeown in second.
