A dreadful afternoon of thundery showers was brightened up by some excellent on track action at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon. Banbridge driver Gary Grattan took the honours in the coveted Moffett Shield for Superstox, whilst Sammy Fisher was victorious in the Rookie Bangers Ulster Open Championship. Scottish visitor Kenny Purdie trumped the locals to land the Classic Hot Rods feature race win, whilst other victories at the meeting sponsored by 2ke Engineering were Adam Weir (Junior Productions) and Leonard Dunn (National Bangers).

The usual Superstox pilots were joined for the day by recently married ProStock racer Crystal Millar, part of an unusual wedding present from her husband Aaron. Chris McArdle and Gary Chambers battled hard in the tough conditions in heat one, with Chambers taking the first win of the day over Gary Grattan and McArdle. Heat two saw a turn three crash put paid to the hopes of a number of drivers, with Gary Grattan powering through past McArdle to take the victory this time, with Sean Mark a creditable third.
The final, for the annual Moffett Shield kindly presented by staunch Superstox supporters Eleanor and Geoffrey Moffett, saw a great lead battle develop between McArdle and Chambers, with Lee Davison and the Grattan brothers closing fast. Davison for a time looked the man most likely to get to the front, but he spun out on the back straight when within touching distance of the lead. That opened the door for Gary Grattan, who hit the front and took the big win over Chambers and Denver Grattan. McArdle also received a presentation as the first white/yellow grader over the line.

The Rookie Bangers continue to entertain with each and every outing, and their biggest entry so far was on hand and produced some great racing. The action came thick and fast in heat one, with Phillip Farrell taking victory despite carrying some damage late on. An ever more hectic heat two saw a big crash before they even took the green flag, but Sammy Fisher avoided the carnage to grab the win over Johnny Murray and Peter Murray.
Fisher is quickly becoming the star attraction in the Rookies with some very accomplished performances so far, and he once again took the flag in the Ulster Open Championship final. Stephen McLaughlin was set to mount a strong challenge but was taken out, with Fisher then heading home Thomas Browne and Peter Murray. It was an action packed encounter, with Team Sour's Paul O'Connor seemingly willing to take on everyone who tried to stop him before running out of steam late on.

The Classic Hot Rods field was bolstered by a welcome visiting trio from the Republic of Ireland in Damien Corrigan, Gerry Rothwell and Adrian Boyle, whilst Scottish legend Kenny Purdie was also a welcome entrant. A wet ans slippery heat one saw a masterclass from former National Champion Clive Richardson, as the Annaghmore man won at a canter from Gary O'Neill and Purdie. Conditions hadn't improved much for heat two, and again Richardson dominated ahead of Purdie and Thomas Dilly.
The final for the latest round of the Dilly Roofing Supplies NI Championship saw a new race tyre on offer to the winner, and Purdie quickly demoted Boyle, Corrigan and Rothwell to go ahead. With Dilly and Richardson going at it hammer and tongs for second, the 'King of Carluke' Purdie stormed home to what was a very popular win. Richardson and Dilly filled out the places.

The young stars of the Junior Productions were contesting the second round of their 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series, which produced some excellent racing all afternoon. The teenagers showed fantastic car control, and respect for each other, as they raced through three very clean races. Gareth Halliday took the chequered flag in all three outings, but unfortunately a minor technical problem later saw him excluded from all the results. That handed the opening heat win to Drew McKeown, with Adam Weir inheriting victory in both heat two and the final. Graham Meek and Adam McFall came through to second and third in the feature race as the young drivers impressed in the poor conditions.

A low showing of 2L Non Mondeo National Bangers saw Leonard Dunn take the King of Krash win over Steven Bolton, with Bolton then victorious in the Allcomers. Peter Murray then won an entertaining Destruction Derby after some great late action and a head on between Christy Bradley and Ben McKenna.

Midlothian driver Gordon Alexander became Scotland's first ever Hot Rod World Champion when he was victorious in the Clive Richardson Ltd 2.0 Hot Rod Championship of the World at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday. A bumper crowd were on hand for the biggest event of the season at the local track, enjoying some brilliant sunshine and a full afternoon of championship race action.

Following the qualifying heats the previous evening at Aghadowey Oval, Portadown duo Glenn Bell and Feargal McNally had claimed the front row spots for the all important World Final, with Alexander third ahead of a sterling effort from Dungannon's Sean Dynes to qualify in fourth. Tullyroan's Brian Cherry and Stoke driver Dave Leech completed the top six of the 30 car grid.

Bell immediately settled into the top spot ahead of a challenging Alexander, Cherry and England's George Turiccki, as the field set a blistering pace in the perfect conditions. Further back Portadown's former double World winner Wayne Woolsey was catching the eye after mechanical trouble during the heats thwarted his qualifying, racing through from fifteenth spot on the grid to hit the top five after less than 10 laps. A caution period when Turiccki got into trouble closed the front runners up, with Woolsey quickly slipping under Alexander to go second and take the chase to leader Bell.

The lead trio, all chasing the sports premier prize, were circulating as one with the tension at fever pitch in the stadium. Woolsey made his bid for the lead into turn one at two thirds distance, with contact between the cars sending Bell out wide and slithering back to fourth spot. Woolsey raced clear to take the chequered flag, but a Stewards Enquiry saw him unfortunately demoted to third place for the contact on Bell, handing the World title to a jubilant Alexander ahead of Leech.

The supporting World Revenge race saw the grid from the World Final reversed, and that saw a victory for local driver Allen Cherry in his new car, whilst the last race of the meeting for the Irish Open Championship saw Alexander take another victory ahead of Bell and Ryan McClure.

Hot on the heels of Portadown racer Jordan Rochford winning the European Championship at Aghadowey the previous evening, the Lightning Rods were contesting their Corry Car Sales Irish Open Championship at Tullyroan. The opening heat saw a stylish victory for Vince Litter ahead of a challenging Richard Stewart, before Rochford took the victory in heat two after a great outside pass on Essex racer Reid Murray.
Irish Champion Richard Stewart led the Irish Open final away from pole position ahead of Rochford, only for Stewart to hit trouble and retire from the top spot. Portadown's former World Champion Scott Cochrane slipped ahead, and held on for the win despite the efforts of Rochford to demote him. As Cochrane took the spoils, Mark Corry grabbed second with a great drive ahead of Rochford in third.

The young 6-11 year old drivers in the Ninja Karts produced some fantastic racing for their LJN Motorsport Irish Open Championship, with a big grid on hand including Scottish and English visitors. Portadown's Daniel Stewart grabbed the opening heat win ahead of Scottish Champion Charlie Hardie, before English duo Toby Parfitt and Lexi Finney took the top two places in the second heat. The Irish Open final was a truly tremendous race, with a whole gaggle of Karts battling for the top positions throughout. A brief suspension following a huge crash which eliminated Scottish stars Hardie and Robbie Armit was followed by a great run to the chequered flag, which saw Parfitt claim the title ahead of Ballymena's Aaron Ward and England's Kasey Jay Jones, the latter having won the National Championship at Aghadowey the previous day.

As always on Speedweekends the ProStocks were in top form, with plenty of contact amongst the ranks to keep the fans entertained. Coleraine's Adam White took victory in the Irish Open Championship to add to the British title he won last month in Scotland, with Irish Champion Dan Shannon in second ahead of Joe Largey. The DMC Gold Cup race was another spectacular outing, with Shannon emerging from the drama as the winner over Mark McLaughlin and Leonard Dunn.

The 1300 Stock Cars rounded out the action packed programme, and after Newtownabbey's Calvin Blake took both heat wins, an entertaining Irish Masters final fell to Ballymena's Peter Greer ahead of Belfast driver Jon McQuillan and Adrian McKinstry.

The opening day of the DMC Race Promotions Summer Speedweekend last Saturday saw some excellent race action at Aghadowey Oval, culminating in a fantastic European Lightning Rods Championship victory for Portadown's Jordan Rochford. The other major title on the line was the Ninja Karts National Championship, which fell to Hampshire's Kasey Jay Jones after a storming drive. There were also important World Championship qualifying heats for the 2.0 Hot Rods and Irish Open Championship qualifiers for the ProStocks, whilst Curtis Greer raced to a final win in the supporting Stock Rods.

A cosmopolitan field lined up for the opening heat of the Corry Car Sales Lightning Rods European Championship, with Mark Corry the early leader in the wet conditions before fellow Portadown driver Vince Litter swept past to take up the running. As Litter cleared off into the distance to win at a canter, Norfolk's Ben Furness showed great skill to move through for second on the outside line ahead of fellow Englishman Ashley Birkin. The reversed grid for heat two saw Glenavy's Mark McCambridge quickly move ahead, but he was being caught in the closing stages by a flying Jordan Rochford. Rochford made a late bid for the lead but couldn't quite snatch it, leaving McCambridge a worthy winner with Ally Neill in third.

Litter had claimed pole position for the European Championship final, but his early lead disappeared after a mistake on the Brown Trout Bend allowed Rochford and Furness past. As Rochford stretched away out front, Litter found a way back to second past Furness, only to be unceremoniously taken out by Colin Murray. As Rochford romped home to the European Championship title, Furness claimed a creditable second ahead of outgoing European title holder Roger Dormer and World Champion Aaron Stewart.

An excellent field of young 6-11 year old racers from all over the British Isles contested the LJN Motorsport National Championship. Young lady racer Lexi Finney stamped her authority all over the opening heat, taking the victory over fellow English racer Toby Partridge and Scotland's Robbie Armit, the current British and European Champion. Heat two saw another win for the visitors, with Farnborough's Kasey Jay Jones taking a great win over Portadown's Daniel Stewart and Scotland's Bailey Millar.

The National Championship final was another thrilling race, but there was no stopping Jones who quickly went ahead to claim the title in emphatic style. A last bend shake up for the podium places was settled in favour of Stewart, with Crumlin's Corey Stirling grabbing third ahead of Jack Morrow and Irish Champion Stewart Hanna.

The main event of the Summer Speedweekend was the Clive Richardson Ltd 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship, with the qualifying heats staged at Aghadowey before the final the following day at Tullyroan. Dungannon's Sean Dynes led the opening qualifier away, but he lost out to eventual winner Feargal McNally, the Portadown man taking the flag well clear of Dynes and impressive Republic of Ireland driver Paddy Curran.

Joel Richardson was the first to show in heat two, pulling clear before sensationally retiring from the lead with mechanical gremlins. That handed the lead to Antrim's European Champion Stephen Emerson, before he too dramatically hit trouble just a couple of laps from home with gearbox problems. The placemen hesitated as Stephen retired, allowing a switched on Glenn Bell to nip through for the win over Wayne Woolsey and England's Dave Leech.

Driving in his first World Championship event, Tullyroan's Brian Cherry made his pole position count in the third and final qualifier, as he romped into a lead he would hold all the way to the flag. England's former National Champion Gavin Botfield kept him honest all the way to take a deserved runner up spot, with Dungannon's Jason Devlin in third.

The ProStocks were also contesting just their qualifying heats at Aghadowey, with the Corry Car Sales Irish Open Championship at stake. The opener saw an early stoppage when European Champion Davy Wright and Evan Monaghan crashed out, leaving British title holder Adam White to romp home for the win ahead of Joe Largey and William McFaul. There was plenty of action in heat two, with Garvagh's Stephen Boyd the leader for most of the distance. He unfortunately suffered a puncture late on, which allowed Robbie Wright to grab the win. Boyd wrestled his car over the line to salvage second ahead of Karl Smyth.

The following day at Tullyroan saw White land another title for his ever growing collection by taking the Irish Open Championship win ahead of Dan Shannon and Largey.

Completing the race programme at Aghadowey were the Stock Rods in a domestic outing, with the field bolstered by welcome English visitor James Morris. World Champion Marc Morrell went ahead in the wet opening heat, but as conditions changed he was relegated by Shane McMillan who took the win over Jonny Cardwell. Heat two saw Rod Fleck lead for much of the duration to take a morale boosting win, this time ahead of Victor McAfee and Cardwell.

The feature final was all about Curtis Greer, as the young Cullybackey star went ahead and never looked back on his way to the chequered flag. Brothers Shane and Derek McMillan chased him over the line in second and third.

An entertaining evening at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday saw fourteen races across four different formulas. Annual Tullyroan Challenge Cup victories fell to Nutts Corner's Aaron Rainey in the 1300 Stock Cars and Bleary's Drew McKeown in the Junior Productions, whilst Banbridge ace Denver Grattan took the spoils in the second round of the Superstox NIOvalTV Series. The other final winner at the DRS Steel Buildings sponsored meeting was Portadown's Jordan Rochford in the Lightning Rods.

The rough and tumble 1300 Stock Cars produced some excellent action all evening, with the opening heat falling to Ballymena's Peter Greer from the blue grade, ahead of a great battle for second which went the way of Jon McQuillan on the line ahead of Thomas McCrory and Aaron Rainey. In the damp conditions of heat two Irish Champion Ivan Elliott took another good win in his new GRP car, even surviving a mid race caution period to take the chequered flag ahead of Michael Logan and McCrory.
Aggregate points formed the final grid, with Greer and McQuillan sharing the front row. McQuillan and McCrory contested the lead in excellent fashion once they got going, with Adrian McKinstry and Rainey joining in for good measure. The bumpers were put to good use, and at one stage they headed out onto the back straight four abreast for the top spot! McCrory got spun aside, and it was Rainey who got ahead when it mattered to take the Tullyroan Challenge Cup win from McQuillan and Peter Greer. If the final was good, the Dash For Cash to end the meeting was even better! Unfortunately for Rainey he took a hard knock early on to bring out the caution flags, before we were treated to an epic six car fight for the lead. Lap after lap McKinstry, Logan, Greer, McQuillan, McCrory and Elliott exchanged bumpers and the lead spot in what was quickly becoming one of the races of the year. Elliott was in the box seat as we entered the last lap, and as he went defensive heading to the final turn Greer and Logan came in hard behind him with the bumpers. Out of the melee Greer snatched an absolutely sensational win ahead of Elliott and Logan.

The local Junior Productions aces were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Cameron Willacy for his Ulster debut. Cameron and Callum Magill led them away in the opener, but Ballykelly's Matthew Nicholl was catching the eye as he quickly swept through to the lead. He took the first victory of the night over Adam Weir and Drew McKeown. Nicholl then repeated the dose in heat two, getting the better of a great dice with Gareth Halliday to take his second win of the evening. Graham Meek and McKeown worked their way through to second and third by the chequered flag.
Nicholl and Meek qualified on the front row for the final in somewhat damp conditions. Nicholl got knocked aside which would later see Weir penalised, as Meek and McKeown began a great battle for the top spot. Meek was favouring the wide line as he searched for grip on the slippery surface, but McKeown was able to slither under him to take up the running. Despite Meek's best efforts to come back, the Tullyroan Challenge Cup win fell to McKeown, with Ben Bruce impressing in third. The young drivers put on an excellent showing in the final in very tricky conditions indeed.

Another good showing of Superstox gridded for the second round of the popular NIOvalTV Series, with recent newcomer James Logan leading them off in the opener from the novice grade. He impressed by leading until past half distance, when Lee Davison powered through in his RCE machine to take the win over Irish Champion Denver Grattan and Logan. Logan led Gregg Hyndman in the second heat, before a lap seven caution period when oil on turn three saw a number skittle into the wall and retirement. At the resumption Davison made short work of the remaining laps to take the win and earn himself a rise to the superstar grade. Gary Grattan and Stephen Stewart filled the places.
Andrew Morrow and then Lee Johnston led the early charge in the final, with Johnston settling in ahead of Adam Lockhart out front. Davison was again on the move, tracked by a repaired Denver Grattan after his heat two trip to the concrete. Denver muscled his way past before Davison lost out when he tangled with Conor Murphy. D Grattan hit the front by slipping past Johnston three laps from home, taking the win ahead of Lee and Lockhart. Johnston also received a trophy from series sponsors NIOvalTV as top white/yellow graded car home. The night was rounded off by a Grand National, which saw Aaron McNeilly hold off the late advances of Denver Grattan to take a morale boosting victory.

Before the Lightning Rods has their opening race, the recently crowned World Champion Aaron Stewart was paraded to the fans to a rapturous welcome. It was wet as they took the green flag for heat one, but former British Champion Jordan Rochford was in tremendous form as he scythed through the field to take a super win over Irish Champion Richard Stewart and Ricky Shaw. It was great to see Tim Hazlett back in Lightning Rods action in a newly acquired car, as Vince Litter stamped his authority all over heat two. He took a commanding win ahead of Ally Neill and Mark Corry.
The final started on a wet track and was an excellent encounter, with a five way lead battle developing between Rochford, Litter, Scott Cochrane, Neill and Shaw. Rochford really had the bit between his teeth, as he superbly clung to the outside groove to relegate the pack and hit the front. Just as it looked all over bar the shouting, the track was beginning to dry, and dry fast. That brought Richard Stewart and Neill into play, having obviously opted for a set-up more suitable to the conditions now. Rochford just held on though for what was a great win, with R Stewart, Neill and Litter next home.
