Irish Titles for Greer and Bevan at Aghadowey
The first of the annual end of season Irish Championships took place at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer and Coleraine’s Lacey Bevan both earning Irish title victories in the Stock Rods and Ninja Karts respectively. Portadown’s European Champion Jordan Rochford was victorious in the Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey, with the same title falling to Ballymena’s James Goldie in the Thunder Rods. British Champion Dan Shannon raced to a heat and final double in the ProStocks, at the meeting which was kindly sponsored by Ross Hyndman Motors of Londonderry.

Curtis Greer and Stevie McNiece lined up on the front row of the Stock Rods Irish Championship race courtesy of points scored during the season, but they didn’t get far at the first time of asking as the red flags came out for a nasty turn four crash. Samuel Montgomery found the wall on the exit of the turn, coming back across the pack and causing big damage for Philip Wilson amongst others. At the restart Greer assumed control out front, with McNiece trying doggedly to hang on around the outside. Jonny Cardwell and Shane McMillan moved to second and third, with Greer edging clear out front. British Champion McMillan found a way past Cardwell at two thirds distance after a minor slip from Jonny, but despite Shane closing on the leader over the final laps Greer had driven the perfect race to add the Irish title to the National and Scottish Open wins he scooped earlier in the season. McMillan was excellent value in second ahead of Cardwell and Marc Morrell.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a commanding win for Stephen McCready, who powered home ahead of Derek McMillan and Chris Hamill. McCready is sure to be a major player in the formula in 2019, having just joined the ever increasing pack on the DMC Race Promotions raceways.

Max Hobson and Lacey Bevan lined up on the front row for the Ninja Karts Irish Championship decider, with Hobson quickly edging ahead of Lauren Berry. Berry spun and lost ground, elevating Bevan back to second before a caution was called when Ryan Berry spun to a halt on the Brown Trout Bend. During the caution Hobson sensationally retired when his chain came adrift, leaving Bevan to lead them away at the restart. Lacey pulled clear out front as the greens came out, with Lexi Crooks and Rhea McConkey giving chase. Bevan completed the final laps to be crowned Irish Champion, her first major title victory in the formula, with Crooks taking an excellent runner up spot in her first season of racing in the formula. Lauren Berry completed the podium finishers after a spectacular recovery from her early spin, completing an all girls top three for perhaps the first time in UK oval racing. All the young stars received trophies for competing in the event from NI Points Championship sponsors ASC Cars, with grade awards also going to Rhea McConkey, Lauren Berry and Matthew Weir.
Hobson bounced back from his Irish Championship disappointment to take the win in the Irish Revenge race, leading home Brandon Litter and Lauren Berry.

Mark McCambridge held off a spirited challenge from European Champion Jordan Rochford to take the win in the opening Lightning Rods heat, the Glenavy man making his Sierra as wide as he possibly could to thwart Jordan’s attempts to pass. Heat two saw a flag to flag win for World Champion Gordy McKee from pole position, with Tim Hazlett impressing on his way to second with Rochford returning to third to claim pole position for the final.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Rochford immediately hit the front, but a brief shower of rain added to the ingredients in this one. Jordan struggled to make his expected break up front on the slippery track, with Hazlett tracking his every move for a time. McKee found a way past Hazlett just past half distance, but Rochford by now was home and dry to a very polished victory indeed. McKee and Hazlett completed the podium finishers.

An excellent field of Thunder arrived to contest their King of Aghadowey title, with the first reverse grid heat falling to David Wilson who held off Andrew McLean and third placed Jonny Teggart. Heat two saw James Goldie on great form as he breezed home to the win ahead of Lee McCloy and newcomer Glen White. There was a huge battle in the main pack in this one which kept the fans more than entertained.
Aggregate points saw Goldie and McLean share the front row for the final, with Goldie quickly settling into the lead. McCloy was right on his case and he slotted into second, and as the race progressed he began to put the pressure on the leader. Goldie was equal to it all though, and he came home to lift the King of Aghadowey crown with McCloy a gallant runner up ahead of Wilson in third.

The ProStocks completed the programme, with Dylan Booth leading heat one before he dropped out with problems. That handed the lead to William McFaul but he was reeled in and nudged wide on the last bend by British Champion Dan Shannon who took a superb last gasp victory. Booth again led the second heat before he was moved aside by McFaul who took the win over Shannon.
Booth again led the way for much of the final, until McFaul bumped him wide to take up the running. Booth came back and tried to spin McFaul out, the duo embarking on an exciting duel for the rest of the race. Booth went in hard into the final bend to dislodge McFaul from the lead, and sensationally succeeded in taking both wide and opening the door for Shannon to steal through for the win! Booth and McFaul were next home after a truly epic race.
