2023 Kicks Off In Style at Tullyroan Oval
The bumper New Year Bank Holiday crowd at Tullyroan Oval on Monday January 2nd were treated to some fantastic race action from all five formulas on show. Dublin’s Jonathan Compelli raced to the Van-dalism title in the outstanding Big Van Bangers, whilst the Limavady-based Goligher family locked out the top three spots in the Rookie Bangers New Year Challenge, with Lucas taking the win.
In the other feature races, girl racer Lauren Berry from Kilmore pulled off a superb final win in the Junior Productions, Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer won the Superstox silverware whilst World Champion Jordan Rochford Portadown took a fine, last-gasp win in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

One of the best fields of Big Van Bangers for many years took to the grid for the Van-dalism title, with World Banger Champion Stevo McGrath’s huge van taking a big shot from Mike Flaherty which rolled it right onto its side! Jonathan Compelli held the early lead, only to lose out to a flying Matthew McKinstry. Compelli came back strong however, spinning McKinstry out of contention to take a superb win amidst the carnage. Tony Gillespie and Leonard Dunn completed the top three.
Compelli then took another win in the Allcomers race, with more great entertainment served up by the drivers. The Destruction Derby was outstanding, with some great hits being dished out. It boiled down to Gillespie and McGrath, with McGrath taking the win after totally obliterating Gillespie’s minibus. Tony had the consolation of the Best Wreck Award, with McGrath also taking Entertainer of the Day.

A 30+ field of Rookie Bangers treated the fans to some spectacular racing, with Gavin Gamble the long time leader in the opening heat before Stephen Boyd stole past late on to take the flag ahead of Lucas Goligher. The star man in heat two was Josh Goligher, as he overhauled early leader Ryan Nixon to take the flag. Unfortunately though, Josh was demoted to fourth by the Stewards for a restart violation, which handed victory to Marc Morrell over John Goligher.
Boyd led the action packed final until he hit trouble and retired, which briefly handed the lead to Morrell. Lucas Goligher soon stormed past to the lead, and he held on to take the chequered flag ahead of his brother Josh, with their father John making it a family clean sweep in third.

Harry Minish was the latest recruit to join the ever growing Junior Productions field, and he and fellow novice Robbie Dallas gave a great account of themselves on the slippery track. Leyton Hughes crossed the line first in the opening heat after a late pass on Dylan Fegan, but Leyton was adjudged to have jumped the start which saw him handed a penalty which gave Jake Devlin the win. Minish and Dallas contested the lead for much of heat two, before Hughes made amends for earlier by powering past to the win on the last lap ahead of British & Irish Champion Jack Morrow.
The final saw Dallas lead Minish for much of the distance on what was a very slippery track indeed. The driver to watch though was Lauren Berry, who arrived with the lead bunch with just five laps to run. Lauren quickly hit the wide outside line, edging past the top three with an outstanding drive that many an adult would have been proud of. She powered home to take the chequered flag and the silverware after the stand out performance of the afternoon. Dallas impressed in second ahead of Litter and Minish.

The Superstox again fielded a very good grid of twenty cars, with Nathan Beattie setting the heat one pace before he was overhauled by NI Points Champion Craig McConnell who took the win in emphatic style, ahead of Alan Haugh and Beattie. Heat two saw McConnell repeat the feat with another fantastic drive, this time heading home Curtis Greer and World Champion Kyle Beattie.
The final again saw Nathan Beattie pulling clear early on, but he had Greer bearing down on him and Curtis slipped ahead with just five laps to run. Despite the best efforts of Graham Fegan and Kyle Beattie to get on terms in the closing stages, Greer had everything under control and he took the chequered flag and the silverware.

Tipperary racer John Kennedy was a welcome addition to the 2.0 Hot Rods field, where he was joined by newcomer Davie Black. Teenager Sam Percy led much of the distance in the opener before Adam Heatrick christened his new mount with a maiden win, having slipped ahead in the closing stages. Percy made no mistake in heat two, leading from flag to flag ahead of Adam Weir for a creditable victory.
The final turned out to be a nail biter, with Percy leading once again but with the star men right on his tail with just a couple of tours left. Ryan McCrory found what looked like a race winning gap down the inside, only for Percy to fight back hard which led to the pair of them clashing. Jordan Rochford quickly capitalised, as World Champions do, powering around the outside of the drama to snatch the win over Weir and Ally Neill.
