Four Irish Champions Crowned Amidst Storm Arwen at Aghadowey
Conditions were nothing short of atrocious at Aghadowey Oval on Friday night with Storm Arwen bringing in gale force winds and heavy, wintery showers. The drivers coped admirably on track, with Irish Championship titles falling to Portadown duo Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods) and Jordan Robinson (Superstox), whilst Chris Hamill from Gawley’s Gate and Garvagh’s Dean Catherwood also tasted Irish title glory in the 1300 Stock Cars and Thunder Rods respectively. The supporting Stock Rods saw a final win for Kells driver Shane McMillan.

With conditions as bad as could be expected, grip was at a premium as the Lightning Rods set off for the Irish Championship race. Pole sitter Nigel Jackson just couldn’t get the power down as Ricky Shaw edged ahead with Ally Neill following him through. Jackson isn’t World Champion for no reason, and he soon settled down and swooped right around the outside to take up the running.
As Nigel edged clear to take his eighth Lightning Rods Irish title, Neill and Mark McCambridge came through to complete the podium. McCambridge then went on to win the Irish Revenge race from Jackson and Shaw.

A fantastic grid of Superstox set off for their Irish title race, with Lee Davison settling into the lead whilst Jordan Robinson headed a squabbling pack on the slippery surface. Robinson managed to break clear and chase down the leader, edging Davison wide with just four laps to go to take up the running.
As Robinson took a fantastic and well deserved title victory, Davison and Kyle Beattie completed the podium finishers. The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a fantastic battle between Craig McConnell, Beattie and Robinson, with Jordan again coming out on top to record his second win of the evening.

Polesitter Chris Hamill got shunted wide in a dramatic opening lap of the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Championship, with Jon McQuillan and then Robbie Wright having spells out front. Hamill was coming back strong though, and he bided his time before making the perfect move on the final bend to dislodge Wright from the lead and take a great win. Joining the duo on the Irish title podium was Gareth Halliday who took a creditable third. The Irish Revenge support race then also fell the way of Hamill after a great battle amongst the pack.

The Thunder Rods Irish Championship was an eagerly awaited event, with so many possible contenders. Samuel Murphy led early on ahead of Dean Catherwood and defending champion James Goldie. The slightest slip from Murphy in the treacherous conditions saw Catherwood and Goldie move through, and despite Goldie’s best efforts to retain his title it was Catherwood who stormed home to take the Irish crown and the right to wear the green roof for the next twelve months. Goldie and Murphy completed the podium, before Simon McLaughlin took the Irish Revenge race ahead of Catherwood and Andrew McLean.

The Stock Rods were a late addition to the programme and it was Ballymena stalwart Victor McAfee who took the opening heat win, before Ballymoney’s Thomas Morrison took heat two in what was a blanket finish after a great race amongst the frontrunners. The final saw a lot of oil go down on the already slippery surface after a huge engine blow up for Michael Rodgers, with Kells star Shane McMillan coping best to take the victory over Jonny Cardwell and Morrison.
