Weather Fails to Dampen Spirits at Aghadowey!
The horrendous weather conditions at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night didn’t detract at all from the on track action. Kells driver Derek McMillan was crowned Irish Champion in the Stock Rods to cap a tremendous season, whilst Kyle Beattie produced a stunning comeback drive to take the Superstox Irish Championship. At the meeting sponsored by his family’s business Murrays of Randalstown, Shane Murray took a faultless hat-trick in the National Hot Rods, Aughnacloy’s Adam Best secured victory in the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series, Portaodwn ace Robbie Wright took the 1300 Stock Cars Ulster Championship whilst Co Meath racer Odhran Monaghan took a great treble in the Ninja Karts.

The very wet conditions kept the Stock Rod stars on their toes for the Irish Championship, with Derek McMillan and Marc Morrell sharing the front row ahead of Shane McMillan and Micky McFall. Derek quickly edged clear up front as a huge battle developed for second between Shane McMillan, Victor McAfee and Gary Butler. McAfee then went out, and there was no quarter asked, and certainly none given, between the other two as they battled hard and swapped places for second.
A loose wheel on track with one lap to go added to the drama as the caution flags came out, but Derek had all under control up front and romped home to add the Irish title to the World, British and European titles he already has in his locker. A Stewards Enquiry saw S McMillan and Butler both docked two places for contact on each other during the race, which elevated Morrell to second and Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer to third.

The Irish Revenge race saw the grid reversed from the Irish Championship, and amidst the worst of the conditions it was Larne’s Samuel Wilson who took the win over Derek McMillan.

The Superstox Irish Championship showdown was simply a breathtaking race, with no end to the drama lap after lap! British Champion Lee Davison started on pole position but he was bundled to the wall with a number of others on the first turn and lost ground as Stephen Stewart powered clear up front. Kyle Beattie was another favoured runner as a two time former champion, but he lost time with an early spin too. As Stewart continued out front Davison clawed his way back into second before a caution period when Gregg Hyndman became stranded on turn one.
The bumpers went well and truly in again on the restart, with Stewart and Davison both out and Beattie through to the lead having been almost last after the opening lap! Kyle reeled off the remaining laps to land his third Irish title and in some style too. Sean Mark took second ahead of Keith McAreavey in third.
To complete his great night, Beattie also raced to victory in the Irish Revenge race over Mark and Hyndman.

For the National Hot Rods it was Round 4 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, and before the opening heat began the drivers paid a fitting 3 wide tribute to the late Tommy Shaw, the man who introduced Hot Rod racing to Northern Ireland in the 1970’s. The going was treacherous in the sodden conditions, with Shane Murray taking the opening heat over Adam Heatrick and Glenn Bell, before he repeated the feat in the second heat again ahead of Heatrick with John Christie in third.
In the final Murray opened up a huge gap out front, but he then became caught in the midst of the places battle whilst lapping the other runners. Suddenly his huge advantage was gone as Glenn Bell and Gary Woolsey came into contention. Both showed their nose alongside Murray, but Shane had enough in hand to hang on to complete an impressive hat-trick of wins. Woolsey, Ian McReynolds and Bell completed the top finishers.

The atrocious conditions certainly didn’t suit the 2.0 Hot Rods, as they slipped and slithered their way around the circuit all evening. Jonny McMillan took the opener ahead of Thomas Morrison, before Ballymoney man Morrison went one better by taking the second heat over Gary Wilson.
The Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series Grand Final saw the grid formed on points from throughout the series, and that put Adam Best on pole from Allen Cherry, Conor Hughes and Davy Potter. Cherry did his best to challenge Best initially, but once the race settled down Cherry dropped back and Best was able to move clear and seal victory. Morrison drove a great race from down the grid to take a great runner up position at the flag, with Gary Wilson in third. All three received new race tyres courtesy of sponsors Hoosier.

Calvin Blake and Robbie Wright shared the heat wins in the 1300 Stock Cars, before it was Wright who took the final honours to be crowned 2019 Ulster Champion. Fionn Donnelly and Ryan Stewart completed the podium finishers.

The young aces in the Ninja Karts completed the race programme, with Odhran Monaghan from Co Meath dominating proceedings. He took both heat wins with ease, with Leyton Hughes a gallant runner up in both from the Superstar grade. Even with the longer race distance in the final it was still all about Mongahan, Odhran completing a perfect night with yet another victory over Hughes and Max Hobson.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Murrays of Randalstown
