Portadown's Daniel Stewart produced a stunning drive in the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, taking victory after a superbly executed challenge for the lead on the final lap of the feature race. The perfect conditions led to some fast and furious racing, with the other final wins at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting falling to Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods), Steven Haugh (ProStocks), Curtis Greer (Stock Rods) and Adam McFall (Junior Productions).

Two graded heats decided the grid for the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet final, and the first to show in the opener was recent newcomer Lauren Berry. Amy Morrow was also in action on her debut in the formula, but it was her brother Jack who was the man to watch in this one as he scythed through into the lead. He was tracked all the way by Sam Percy, but Morrow was able to hang on for a great win. Percy and Morrow again contested the lead in heat two after Ryan Berry led them away, and this time it was Sam who held on for a popular win over Jack. Two of the fancied superstar drivers felt the wrath of Race Control in this one, with disqualifications handed out to both Daniel Stewart and Stewart Hanna for spinning other karts out of contention.
J Morrow and Percy shared the front row of the grid for the Golden Helmet final, with Percy quickly stretching into a clear lead. Heavy backmarking traffic was thwarting Sam's progress however, with Stewart sensationally coming into contention having started well down the grid. He edged closer and closer until he was within striking distance as they took the last lap marker, before finding a gap down the inside into the final bend to take a dramatic and well deserved win. Percy signed off from his Ninja Kart career with second as he has now reached the upper age limit, with Hanna rounding out the podium in third.

Amongst a pleasing entry of 2.0 Hot Rods were class debuts for Samuel Murphy and Michael Woods, with Kieran Casey a welcome addition too. Pat Casey and Colin McFarland disputed the lead in the opening heat, before Sean Dynes got a great run around the outside to take a super win ahead of Allen Cherry and European Champion Stephen Emerson. It was frantic up front in heat two as well, with Cherry this time getting the better of Pat Casey on the outside line to take the win in his new Peugeot. Ryan McClure and P Casey filled the places.
The final was for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series, and the closed grid paired Cherry and Emerson on row one. Cherry led them away but was under pressure early on, with Emerson getting the slightest of gaps down the inside into turn one to take the lead and the win. He received a new tyre courtesy of Hoosier, with Cherry and Stuart Cochrane filling the places.

There was also mini-series action for the ProStocks, as they contested the second round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Challenge Series. Lee McCloy and Norman Purdy disputed the lead early in the opener, and despite Irish Champion Dan Shannon coming on strong nearing the end, it was McCloy who hung on for the win. The same duo disputed the early exchanges of heat two once again, before Joe Largey bumpered his way by in great style on the final bend to take the victory over Purdy and McCloy.
To say the final was dramatic would be an understatement! There was plenty of contact and places exchanged early on from the closed grid, with British and Irish Open Champion Adam White eventually moving clear. As he stretched away, a huge battle was raging between Stephen Boyd, Steven Haugh and Shannon for second. Purdy then suffered a huge engine detonation heading towards turn three, with the resultant oil taking a few into the wall and out of the race. The resultant caution period completely wiped out White's huge lead, and it was game on at the restart. As White tried to make good his escape again, Haugh came in hard with the bumper to take a great, if unlikely at one stage, victory. White chased him home with Dylan Booth in third.

The Stock Rods were boosted by welcome visitors Paddy O'Dwyer and Colm O'Sullivan, and also debutant Stuart Agnew. The opener proved to be the race of the night, producing close, fantastic dicing which the Stock Rods are renowned for. Curtis Greer wrestled the lead from pacesetter Gareth Bevan, before Irish Open Champion Jonny Cardwell arrived to challenge. Cardwell tried all he could on the outside line, but despite spending lap after lap alongside Greer it was Curtis who got the nod on the line with the race fans applauding them under the flag such was the quality of the race. Greer completely fluffed his start in heat two, and that opened the door for Irish Champion Derek McMillan to power through to the win over Stevie McNiece and Victor McAfee.
Greer once again dominated the final, but the victory he eventually grabbed was far from easy. McNiece broke free from the red grade to chase Curtis hard, running down his lead as they entered the final stages. Former World Champion McNiece looked outside to challenge for the win, but Greer had it covered as he took his second win of the night. McNiece and Shane McMillan completed the podium.

Former Ninja Kart star Aaron Ward was a debutant in the Junior Productions, as another Ninja Kart star of the past Callum Magill led for most of the distance in the opening heat. NI Points Champion Drew McKeown found a gap down the inside on the final lap to take the win. Magill made no mistake in heat two, racing home to his first ever win in the formula over Adam McFall and McKeown.
The final came under caution early on when Graham Meek spun on the home straight, with the resulting caution wiping out Magill's early advantage. Gareth Halliday then moved to the front, before he was demoted by a flying McFall who found the slightest of gaps down the inside. Adam then edged clear to take a fantastic and morale boosting win in his Corsa, with Matthew Nicholl and McKeown chasing him home after another night of excellent racing from the young drivers.

The latest points for a number of our classes are now available online.

In the Junior Productions A McKeown & Son Fruit & Veg NI Points Championship, reigning champ Drew McKeown holds the lead ahead of Graham Meek and Adam Weir. The young stars have been producing some outstanding racing of late, and in the 2ke Enginnering Young Guns Series there is a tie between Meek and Adam McFall for the top spot after two rounds.

The all action 1300 Stock Cars have also impressed of late, and in the Autoweld of Belfast NI Poiints Championship Adrian McKinstry continues to lead the way ahead of Jon McQuillan and Michael Logan. The season long quest to qualify for the 2017 World Final is coming to a close at the end of August, and currently leading the way is McQuillan, with Logan and Ivan Elliott chasing hard.

The National Bangers DMC Points Championship, sponsored by FAST Paintworx, sees Leonard Dunn extend his huge lead even further in the latest chart, ahead of Steven Bolton and Stevo McGrath. There are two places in the huge Ipswich World Final up for grabs with just one more meeting to go at the end of August.

Finally in the entertaining Rookie Bangers, Sammy Fisher has been the find of the season and he leads the points chart ahead of Christy Bradley and Peter McKenna-Murray. Their next outing will be at Aghadowey Oval on September 16th, and again places in their World Final at Ipswich in November are up for grabs.

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.
