Latest News
Young Sam McNeice was victorious in the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup during the midsummer race meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, the young Toomebridge star taking the flag in style for his first major title victory in the formula. Cloughmills racer Sean Mark took his first ever feature race win in the Superstox, whilst other final winners at the George Fegan Tyres of Belfast sponsored event were Joe Largey (ProStocks), Stuart Cochrane (2.0 Hot Rods) and Clive Richardson (Classic Hot Rods).

The reversed grid qualifying procedure was in place for the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Ballymena’s Adam McFall making good his escape to take a clear victory in heat one after a great drive. Behind Adam, Sam McNeice outfoxed the battling Adam Weir and Drew McKeown to snatch second on the line. Heat two saw Matthew Nicholl drive an excellent race to hold off McNeice for the win, with Graham Meek and McKeown next across the line.
The final paired McNeice and Nicholl on the front row, with Sam soon settling into the prime position out front. McKeown came through to second but had Nichol all over his back bumper for most of the race. At the head of the field though McNiece was edging clear, and he stormed home to lift the Challenge Cup after a dominant performance. He was followed home by McKeown and Nicholl, with all three presented with their trophies by BTCC superstar Colin Turkington.

An excellent showing of seventeen Superstox included very welcome English visitors Chris and Dan Roots, and they were to play a huge part in the night’s proceedings. David Beattie led the opening heat for much of the duration from the white grade, before losing out to a fast charging Chris Roots. Local form man Lee Davison was quickly onto the leader’s tail as the laps dwindled down, with Lee trying a last bend lunge for the win but Chris held on to take the first chequered flag of the night. Beattie again led much of the way in the second heat, but this time it was Dan Roots who arrived to challenge in the closing stages. Dan moved ahead to take a morale boosting win ahead of his father Chris, with Davison in third.
The final again saw Beattie set the pace, until the charging duo of Sean Mark and James Turkington bumpered their way past to the lead. Davison was showing some great pace once again, and he slipped past into the lead before disaster struck with the flag in sight. A puncture ended his hopes, and Mark accepted the gift of the lead and raced home to his first ever final win. Turkington and Dan Roots completed the podium finishers. A Dash 4 Cash concluded the night, with Beattie hanging on out front to take the win despite Mark’s late charge on an oil covered surface.

Irish Champion Dan Shannon and Joe Largey swapped the lead back and forth in the opening ProStocks heat, with Shannon ahead when it mattered to take the win. Stephen Boyd was the winner in heat two, fending off Steven Haugh at the line.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final saw Boyd on pole from Shannon, and it proved to be an absolutely terrific race. Haugh found himself out front and he and Shannon traded blows and the lead on a number of occasions before Largey joined the fun too. There was a different leader every lap for some time, and they even went down the back straight three abreast at one stage! Largey eventually was able to edge clear to take a truly great win, with Shannon snatching second on the line thanks to a late lunge at Haugh.

Ryan McClure was the star turn during the 2.0 Hot Rods heats, the local driver powering past leader Michael Woods on the outside to take the opening heat win over Irish Champion Glenn Bell who had a great battle with Stuart Cochrane. Woods again led in heat two, before being bundled out of the lead by contact from the pack. McClure assumed the top spot, and took the flag over Allen Cherry and Cochrane. Cochrane was elevated to second ahead of Bell when Cherry was docked for the contact earlier in the race.
Woods again impressed from the novice grade in the final, leading the way before losing out to Colin McFarland. Cochrane had got the break from the star grade, and he quickly swooped past to take the lead and the win in some style ahead of Bell and Mervyn Emerson.

The small field of Classic Hot Rods were joined by a number of cars from other formulae for three invitation races, including the National Hot Rods of John Christie and Ian McReynolds. Clive Richardson took the opening heat in his Mk2 Escort, before his son Joel took the honours in heat two. Damien Corrigan led the final, but had no answer to the pace of Clive Richardson as he raced past to take his second win of the evening.

All five formulas on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening produced some ultra competitive race action on a warm summer’s evening blighted by one heavy shower. Former Irish Champion Richard Stewart from Aghadowey took a fine win in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, while Portadown’s Adam Hylands was victorious in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hooiser Racing Tire Challenge Series. Young Ryan Berry took his first ever race win as he claimed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Award, whilst Chris Hamill celebrated a heat and final double in the Stock Rods and Irish Champion Drew McKeown claimed the Junior Productions honours at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored event.

Another very healthy field of Lightning Rods assembled to contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Scott Cochrane taking the first heat win in an event which saw a heavy shower hit the circuit mid race. Long time leader Mark Corry was bundled out of the race which earned Jonny McMillan a disqualification, but Cochrane coped admirably with the tricky conditions to take the win over Stephen Hollywood and Ricky Shaw. The reverse grid second heat saw Irish Champion Nigel Jackson take the win, overcoming some heavy pressure from Richard Stewart and a late race caution too.
Stewart and Cochrane shared the front row for the final, with Stewart assuming the lead with Cochrane and Jackson for close company. Cochrane glanced the home straight wall and lost a wheel to bring about a caution period, but Stewart wasn’t to be denied as he romped home to a fine victory over Jackson and Jordan Rochford.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods arrived for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Davy Potter set the pace for much of the opening heat until Adam Hylands found a way past in the closing stages. The robust move caught the eye of the Race Stewards with Hylands fortunate to keep the win over Allen Cherry and Potter. Heat two wasn’t without controversy too, as long time leader Thomas Morrison lost out when the leaders encountered a backmarker at just the wrong time. Adam Best claimed the win over Hylands and Stuart Cochrane.
Hylands had annexed pole spot for the final, and went on to lead from flag to flag despite the close attentions of Best in second. Hylands received a new Hoosier race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, with Best and Cochrane rounding out the podium.
During the meeting Hylands was also presented with the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI Shield after he won the season long points chase in the elite formula on the Ulster ovals.

The Ninja Karts saw a debut for Lexi Crooks, with Irish Champion Daniel Stewart snatching the win in the closing stages after a great effort from long time leader Lauren Berry, who had to settle for second ahead of Max Hobson. Stewart again took the win in heat two, with Lauren Berry again in second ahead of Andrew Hawe.
The final for the Golden Helmet Award saw Lauren Berry set the early pace as she chased her first ever race victory, leading her brother Ryan initially. Stewart was on a charge but Lauren was driving the race of her life to hang on to her advantage. Disaster struck at the start of the last lap though as she spun out, receiving a glancing blow from Hobson. The reds came out immediately to check on Lauren, who emerged unscathed to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for her efforts. The one lap dash to the flag saw Stewart lead them off, but Ryan Berry made a great start to slip past into the lead. As they entered the final turn there was contact between the two leading karts, with Stewart coming through to take the flag. The Stewards had no option but to impose a penalty on Daniel, handing the win and the Golden Helmet trophy to a delighted Ryan Berry for his first ever race victory. Lacey Bevan inherited second with Stewart demoted to third place.

A great turnout of Stock Rods saw Chris Hamill demote Robert McIlroy just after half distance to take the opening heat victory, with McIlroy holding on for second ahead of Mark Overend. Overend then had a spell out front in heat two before losing out to Samuel Montgomery as a great race developed at the head of the pack. Formula debutant Matthew McKinstry then produced a great drive to nip ahead and take a great win over Gary Butler and Curtis Greer.
It was hard work for the top stars once again in the final from the rear of the line up, with McIlroy going ahead for the first ten laps. By that stage Hamill had relegated his fellow yellow graders to take the challenge to the leader, and he duly slipped by to record a sublime heat and final double and with it earn a grading rise for the next meeting. Butler again impressed in second ahead of a fast charging Shane McMillan and Stevie McNiece from the star grade.

The Junior Productions saw James Stewart have his best meeting to date, and he led the opening heat when they were brought to a halt for a caution period. James led the rest of the way home but was unfortunately docked for jumping the restart, something that had been a topic in the pre-race drivers briefing. That elevated Matthew Nicholl to the win over Adam Weir, with Stewart having to make do with third spot. Former Ninja Karts star Aaron Ward took a handsome flag to flag win in the second heat, leading home Nicholl and Adam McFall.
Stewart again impressed as he led the opening exchanges of the final, even overcoming a mid race caution which brought the field onto his tail. He continued to drive very well until Nicholl found a way past in the closing to take the chequered flag. The Stewards weren’t happy with his pass on Stewart and Matthew was unfortunately docked two places in the final analysis, handing the victory to Irish Champion Drew McKeown ahead of Sam McNeice and Nicholl.

Mike Flaherty won his second National Bangers Shamwreck title at a sun drenched Aghadowey Oval on Sunday, taking the flag after a dramatic title race. There was some excellent racing on show all afternoon, with Allan Leonard the other big National Banger winner as he took the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby. Other feature race winners at the Cherry Pipes sponsored meeting were Lee Davison (Superstox), Norman Purdy (Thunder Rods), Joe Largey (ProStocks) and John Stewart (Reliant Robins).

Mark Dalgarno from Scotland set the early pace in the heat race for the Unlimited National Bangers, leading Stevo McGrath and Leonard Dunn in the opening stages. It was an excellent race, as McGrath and Dunn went ahead until they encountered Dan Dooner’s Hearse on the back straight. In an instant McGrath was out and Dunn was turned around too, opening the door for Jonny Murdock to power through to take first blood for Team Buckle ahead of Mike Flaherty and Jason Burke. World Champion Steven Bolton was handily placed until a blown engine ended his day.
The Shamwreck final was next up, which put the top heat finishers at the front of the grid. As Murdock went ahead, there was some huge action on turn one which brought out the reds with Scotland’s Scott Patterson in trouble. Murdock resumed the lead again ahead of Flaherty, and as we reached five laps to go Jonny came upon the backmarking Danny Flaherty. As he went to dive inside him, Murdock clipped the rear of Danny’s car and was sent into a huge rollover on the pit bend. The race was stopped, with Jonny emerging unhurt from the wreckage to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for his efforts. Mike Flaherty reeled off the remaining laps to take his second Shamwreck title in some style, with Scotland’s Colin Riddell a close second ahead of Dwayne Lynch.
The Allcomers race saw a easy win for Stevo McGrath, and he also had time for a huge hit on Danny Flaherty’s machine too. The meeting ended with the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby which saw some enormous hits handed out. There was a huge jacking train on turn two, and through the carnage Allan Leonard emerged to take another win for the Last Rites team.
Steven Bolton took the Best Presented Car Award for his Ford Scorpio, Rodney Herron’s Volvo was judged Best Wreck and Murdock took a well deserved Entertainer of the Day award.

The Superstox played a great supporting role, with a very dominant Lee Davison going through the card unbeaten. David Beattie set the early heat one pace before Portadown flier Davison powered through to the win over Sean Mark and Stephen Stewart. Heat two saw a number of caution periods, the first for Aaron McNeilly stranded on turn four and then when James Turkington took a heavy knock on the Brown Trout Bend. Sean Mark hit the front but had no answer to the flying RCE engineered machine of Davison. Lee took his second win of the day over Mark and Stewart once again.
D Beattie again led the way for a number of laps in the final, with Stewart chasing before he was forced to give way to Davison. Lee surged ahead to the lead and the win on lap thirteen, coming home ahead of Stewart and Mark as fourth placed finisher Kyle Beattie was unfortunately removed from the results after a minor technical infringement. Davison received his trophy from PDC Darts superstar Daryl Gurney who was enjoying the racing action for the day.

It was excellent to see a number of new drivers amongst a good entry in the Thunder Rods, as David King led the opening laps of the first heat. Jason Darragh went ahead on half distance and just held off Davy Gurney for the win, with James Goldie in third. King again led heat two before losing out to newcomer Graham Loughlin, with Norman Purdy then moving ahead to take the flag. He was adjudged to have made illegal contact during the race though and was penalised two places in the final analysis, handing the win to Goldie over Loughlin.
After his heat two penalty Purdy hit back in style in the Cherry Pipers sponsored final, catching the squabbling lead duo of King and Gavin Gamble. Gamble assumed the top position before Purdy executed a superb outside line pass to take a fantastic win. Gurney and Samuel Montgomery rounded out the top three ahead of Andrew McLean and Darragh.

A huge battle raged between the star graded ProStocks all afternoon, with no quarter given and certainly none expected! Sam Stewart set the pace in heat one, but it was Irish Champion Dan Shannon who charged through to the win over Steven Haugh and British Champion Adam White. Heat two exploded into life when Shannon got fenced hard on the Brown Trout Bend, losing a wheel in the process. Haugh assumed the lead as hostilities resumed, but White came from miles back on the last bend to land a telling blow which knocked Haugh wide and gave him a truly fantastic win. Haugh and Stephen Boyd filled the places after Stewart was removed from the results for a differential irregularity by the scrutineers.
David Browne’s early final lead was wiped out by a yellow flag for a loose spring on turn four. There had been plenty of swapping of paint and places between the top runners, but Joe Largey stamped his authority on proceedings to take the win over Haugh and a repaired Shannon.

The three wheeler Reliant Robins were contesting their King of Aghadowey title, with Ian Bolton taking the opening heat over John Stewart and Neil Martin. Martin went for a half roll in heat two as he wrestled for the lead with Gareth Bevan, opening the door for Stewart to take the victory over Bolton. The final saw Haley Bevan set the pace for half the distance, when despite a spirited defence she had to give best to Martin. Stewart then surged past both to take the win over Martin and H Bevan.
