Weir, McGrath and Hughes Take Big Tullyroan Title Wins
The cold, wet and windy weather couldn’t deter the drivers and hardy race fans who braved the elements at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. Loughgall’s Matthew Weir and Dublin’s Stevo McGrath grabbed Irish Championship glory in the Junior Productions and Unlimited National Bangers respectively, whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes was crowned Champion of Champions in the Ninja Karts. Lee Davison took the Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup win, whilst fellow Portadown racer Jordan Rochford won the 2.0 Hot Rods final.

Local points champion Jack Morrow quickly hit the front in the Junior Productions Irish Championship, with Sam Percy, Callum Magill and Chelsy Rainey jostling for the top positions in the early exchanges. Matthew Weir had lost a lot of time in a lap one incident, but he was revelling in the wet conditions as he raced towards the front. Soon he was up to second, and after a great fight with Morrow it was Weir who hit the front. With the conditions suiting him perfectly, Matthew pulled out a big advantage to grab the chequered flag, the Derek McMillan Memorial Trophy and the right to wear the green roof for the next twelve months. Morrow and Callum Magill completed the podium ahead of Declan O’Connor.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw Stewart Hanna grab a deserved win over Callum Magill.

Mike Flaherty led early on in the Unlimited National Bangers Irish Championship race, before former World Champion Steven Bolton moved ahead. He soon had Stevo McGrath tracking his every move though, and when Steven hung out the tail end of his car it was just too inviting for McGrath who duly spun him from the lead. McGrath went on to take the coveted Irish title ahead of Jonny Rutherford and David Gurney.
McGrath also picked up the win in the Allcomers race over Flaherty, before the Stephen Bannon Memorial DD fell to Tony Gillespie.

Despite the weekend storm and the chaos with ferries, a large number of mainland UK visitors still joined the local Ninja Kart stars for the evening. The opening race was the annual Individual Achievement Award for those who hadn’t won a race during the season, and it fell to Crumlin’s Riley Dawson-Stirling ahead of Noah Teggart and Ben Hawe.
The Champion of Champions event saw a big grid of Karts battling for honours, with World Champion Leyton Hughes coming through to take the win ahead of Scottish duo Jack Connor and Kenzie Bell. England’s Christian Murray then took the support heat victory ahead of Charlie Johnston.
The meeting final saw Murray again set the pace, but as the laps dwindled down the pack were closing in. On the last lap Murray crashed out as they made their way through heavy backmarking traffic, leaving the door open for Connor to race through for a great victory over England’s Charlie Weston and Dawson-Stirling at the end of a great evening of Ninja Kart racing from the kids.

Another fine field of Superstox included English visitor Declan Salmon and the new Irish Champion Jordan Robinson. Heat one saw Brian Lammey lead the way before teenager Graham Meek swept past to take the win over Lee Davison and Craig McConnell. Heat two saw Robinson take the win ahead of Davison and Salmon, which was enough to claim pole position for the final for Davison.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final saw an action packed opening lap, but Davison had made the perfect start to move ahead. Lee easily swept home to take the win, with Salmon impressing in second ahead of Kyle Beattie and Curtis Greer.

The 2.0 Hot Rods saw a brace of heat wins for Broughshane’s David Kernohan, before Irish Champion Jordan Rochford took a fine victory in the feature race of the evening over Drew McKeown and Denver Grattan.
