Lightning Rods
For those looking the thrills of non-contact rod racing at an affordable cost, the Lightning Rods are just the answer. The Ford Sierra chassis (saloon or hatchback) is the preferred weapon of choice, and running on a treaded Yokohama tyre these 2 Litre machines provide fast and furious action. Engines and suspension modifications are kept as inexpensive as possible, whilst the large size of the cars leads to non-stop action on the tight confines of 1/4 mile ovals and provides some spectacular racing. 2023 sees the transition of the formula continue with the rules being tweaked to bring in BMW and Lexus models to help modernise the Lightning Rods.

The World Championship for the class returns to Ulster in 2023, and the local drivers will also be aiming for TEN World titles on the trot!
