Banwell Leaves It Late To Grab National Championship Success
England’s Jake Banwell was the big winner on a sensational night of international Stock Car Racing at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday. The Norfolk driver pulled off a perfect last bend move to win the 1300 Stock Cars National Championship, whilst Antrim’s Ryan McCrory took victory in the coveted Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods. Other feature race winners were Portadown teenager James Stewart in the Superstox, Bleary’s Mark Corry in the Lightning Rods and Crumlin’s Riley Dawson-Stirling in the Ninja Karts.

A star studded field of 1300 Stock Cars arrived to do battle for their 2022 National Championship, with visitors from England and Scotland lining up alongside the best of the local drivers. Amidst some fantastic action, the opening heat saw a win for recent form man Josh McKinstry, as he headed home Scottish duo Darren Suddaby and Ally Strachan. Heat two saw Suddaby ahead until a late race caution period, with Norfolk’s Jake Banwell pouncing on the one lap dash to the line to take the win.
A sensational start to the National Championship final saw huge drama on the opening laps which caused an early caution. Once they got going again Banwell and fellow English driver Jacob Roff pulled clear out front. Banwell led most of the distance until Roff moved ahead entering the final stages, but Banwell was watching his prey and pounced as they entered the last bend. He sent Roff out wide to the wall with his bumper and moved through on the inside to snatch the win by the narrowest of margins. Chris Hamill came through for third ahead of Strachan and Fraser Clark at the end of an outstanding race.

With the stunning Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy up for grabs, the racing in the 2.0 Hot Rods was always going to be fiercely competitive. Scott Cochrane won the opening heat head of Conor Hughes and defending champion Allen Cherry. Heat two saw the returning Gary Butler take a clear win over Adam Heatrick and Mervyn Emerson.
The final saw Hughes holding the early lead from pole position, with Ryan McCrory tracking his every move. Ryan was looking every inch the faster man, and he finally found a gap down the inside to power through to the lead on the Tullyroan Bend. He quickly surged clear and took a tremendous win to land what is arguably the finest piece of silverware on the local racing scene. Butler came through for second ahead of the new World Champion Jordan Rochford, who earlier in the evening had been given a rousing welcome home as he displayed the gold roof for the first time.

Another packed grid of Superstox provided some excellent racing, with rising star James Stewart taking the opening heat win ahead of Craig McConnell. Novice Andrew Murphy showed great pace to take the second heat win ahead of Graham Meek and Stewart.
The final saw Murphy lead early on, but he had no answer to the pace of Stewart who surged ahead to take his second win of the night in some style. David Beattie, McConnell and David McMenemy chased him home.

Amongst the other formulas on show, Mark Corry took a heat and final double in the Lightning Rods, with Dean Catherwood taking the other heat to see the new BMW models take all three wins on the night.

In the Ninja Karts for 6-11 year olds, Noah Teggart and Riley Dawson-Stirling won the heats, before a raft of penalties for jumping a restart caused controversy in the final. On the road winner Keegan Turtle was one of those to be demoted in the official result, which handed a second win of the meeting to Dawson-Stirling ahead of Charlie Johnston and Turtle.

A couple of demonstration races from the Classic Hot Rods completed the line up, with both falling to Anthony Morgan. The first one was especially close after a late battle between Morgan and Mark Monaghan.
