Josh Goligher Grabs Rookie Bangers Ulster Title
Limavady’s Josh Goligher came out on top in the Rookie Bangers Ulster Championship on Saturday night at Aghadowey Oval, the feature event of an excellent evening of Stock Car and Banger Racing.
Bangor’s Craig McConnell overcame a quality field of Superstox to claim the King of Aghadowey title, whilst young Jack Morrow from Rathfriland took the same crown in the Junior Productions after a great outside line drive. Thomas McCrory produced a superb last bend hit to take the final win in the 1300 Stock Cars final to complete a hat-trick for the night, whilst there was a dream debut for Rab Preston in the Thunder Rods as he took a heat and final double.

An excellent grid for a rare Aghadpwey Oval outing for the Rookie Bangers saw Josh Goligher take the win in the opening heat amidst a whole host of action on track. Lucas Goligher and William McFaul claimed the places. McFaul then came through in heat two to take the win over Ryan Nixon and Leonard Dunn, in a race which saw a stoppage for a big crash for Michael Smith on the pit bend.

The final saw the placemen from the heats start up front, and Josh Goligher edged clear in another race full of action all around the track. As he took the flag, Lucas Goligher made it a family affair by taking the runner up spot ahead of McFaul, the latter having lost out in a skirmish early in the race.

Just a week ahead of their European Championship being staged in the province, a fine field of twenty Superstox gathered to contest their King of Aghadowey title. Brian Lammey and Conor Murphy had turns out front in the opening heat, before Ed Davis raced through to take the win over Murphy and rapid debutant Curtis Greer. Heat two again saw Murphy spend quite a spell out front before this time Craig McConnell worked his way past to take the win over Greer and Jordan Robinson.

The final was lined up in points order, with Davis on pole position and Greer alongside. Davis made the perfect start to pull well clear of McConnell in second, with Craig then gradually reeling in the leader over the duration of the race. He made his move with just three laps to go, edging Davis wide into the Brown Trout Bend to take the win. Davis took a creditable second ahead of Greer, Steven Haugh and Robinson.

Lacey Bevan enjoyed a spell out front in the opening Juniors Production heat, before Abbie McKinstry pulled ahead to take the win over Stewart Hanna and Declan O’Connor. Heat two saw Aaron Dynes take the win after on the road winner Jack Morrow was docked two places for contact. Bevan took a creditable runner up spot, which was enough to earn herself pole position for the final alongside Hanna.

An early skirmish in the final saw McKinstry crash out, leaving O’Connor in the lead ahead of Sam Percy. Morrow really had the bit between his teeth in this one, pulling right around the difficult outside line to take an absolutely fantastic victory. Percy, O’Connor and Matthew Weir were next home.

The 1300 Stock Cars were simply spectacular all evening, with the bumpers put to good use in each and every race. Thomas McCrory had his new car on fine form as he took the opener ahead of Gareth Halliday and Jon McQuillan, the places decided after a huge last bend sort out. There was a big hit for Jack Kennedy in heat two as he was unceremoniously dumped in the wall on the Brown Trout Bend, as McCrory again took the flag over Matthew Milliken and Stephen McCready.

The final saw some great racing early on, with both blows and places exchanged. McCready worked his way ahead, but he soon has McCrory tracking his every move, even with the double heat winner’s rise to the red grade for the feature race. McCrory waited to the very last bend, launching an attack on McCready that took both out to the wall. They raced to the line side-by-side, with McCrory just getting the verdict, and the hat-trick, by the smallest of margins. McCready was a gallant runner up ahead of Robbie Wright in third.

The Thunder Rods again saw a very healthy field take to the track, which made things very difficult for the star men starting at the back of the grid. Debutant Rab Preston raced clear for a dream start to his career by taking the win in the opening heat, ahead of Samuel Murphy and Ricky Bradley. Bradley, in only his second outing on the ovals, then took the win in the second heat ahead of Murphy and Preston.

Preston made a lightning start to the final, quickly demoting his fellow novice graders to quickly build up a healthy lead. It was a lead he wouldn’t lose, and he raced home to take the silverware in style over Murphy and the rapid Dean Catherwood.
