Maxwell Delivers in Richard Turtle Memorial At Aghadowey
Former National Hot Rods World Champion Adam Maxwell was on top form at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, the Crumlin man taking a decisive final win to land the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup. The Ulster Championship for 1300 Stock Cars was successfully defended by Gawley’s Gate driver Chris Hamill after a dominant display, whilst other feature race wins fell to Cullybackey’s Rick Purdy (Thunder Rods), Co Meath’s Declan O’Connor (Stock Rods) and Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow (Junior Productions).

The National Hot Rods were contesting Round 4 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI and the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup, raced annually in memory of the former Cullybackey racer. Richard Stewart took a clear win on the road in heat one, but was unfortunately disqualified after clashing with a backmarker mid race. That handed victory to Podge McQuaid over Derek McMillan and Adam Maxwell. Heat two saw a maiden victory in the elite formula for Garvagh’s Johnny McCloy, as he led home a huge places scrap which fell the way of Maxwell ahead of Ben McKee.
The final saw an early caution period for a big crash which eliminated Gareth Bevan and McQuaid after what looked like an engine failure in the Bevan machine. Thomas Dilly then took over out front, and for some distance he fended off huge attacks from Maxwell and Glenn Bell. It was a tremendous race which kept the crowd on their toes throughout, with Maxwell getting in front to land a great win after not being outside the top three places all evening. McKee impressed as he grabbed second, with Bell having to make do with third despite his huge efforts on the outside line.

The Ulster Championship was on offer for the 1300 Stock Cars, with the first of the reversed grid heats falling to Chris Hamill ahead of Jonathan Brown. Heat two was another action packed encounter which saw the sparks fly around the circuit, with James Crossett taking a great win over Hamill and Ivan Elliott.
Hamill and Crossett shared the front row for the Ulster Championship final, with Chris managing to escape the heavy bumper exchanges early on to make good his escape. From there he cruised to a successful defence of his title ahead of Josh McKinstry and Brown.

Tom Archibald held sway out front in the opening Thunder Rods heat, before David Wilson eased past to take the win with Daniel Rodgers in third. Heat two saw recent returnee Chrissy Dempsey grabbing victory, with Archibald and Rodgers again second and third.
The final turned out to be the race of the night, as Rick Purdy hit the front with Adam Graham right on his tail. The two circulated side by side for many laps in a tremendous dice, with Graham’s great efforts coming to nothing after he clipped the wall late on. As Cullybackey’s Purdy took a hard earned victory in some style, Andrew McLean and Dempsey completed the podium. Graham limped home in fourth after his late race dramas.

A fine field of 20 Stock Rods impressed all evening, with some close competitive action. Ballymena’s Steven McKane celebrated his recent return to the tracks with a great win in heat one over multi-champions Mark Crawford and Dan Shannon. Heat two saw teenager Declan O’Connor take the win after a steady drive out front, leading home McKane and Johnny Gillespie.
The final was once again all about O’Connor, as the latest graduate from the Junior Productions formula showed the seniors how to do it with a clear win. McKane just couldn’t get on terms with the flying 16-year-old and had to settle for second ahead of Gillespie.

Tight, competitive racing was again the name of the game in the Junior Productions, with Lexie Crooks continuing her great recent form to take the opening heat win over Jack Morrow and Jake Devlin. British Champion Morrow then took the win in the second heat after eventual runner up Andrew Hawe saw his big lead wiped out by a late caution.
The final once again saw Hawe out front and setting the pace, but a late race shake up once again opened the door for the experienced Morrow to come through for the silverware ahead of Leyton Hughes and Aaron Dynes.
