Latest News
A fantastic night of racing under the floodlights at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening saw some great battles for the major titles on offer. Portadown driver Jordan Rochford took a great win in the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship, with young Kilmore ace Ryan Berry also tasting Irish Championship success in the Ninja Karts. Another Portadown star, Glenn Bell, was victorious in the National Hot Rods Ulster Championship after Dungannon’s Derek Martin had taken the win in Round 5 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Other winners on the night were Portadown’s Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods and Enniskillen’s Stevie McNiece in the Stock Rods.

A full field of 2.0 Hot Rods came to grid for their 2021 Irish Championship, which didn’t get far before a caution period on lap two after pole-sitter Gary Butler had clashed controversially with Adam Heatrick. On the resumption Jordan Rochford stamped his authority all over the 30-lap event to take a fine victory, with the emotional scenes afterwards showing just what it meant to him and his team. Denver Grattan impressed in second after a good run, ahead of defending champion Adam Best.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a clear win for Adam Hylands, with Feargal McNally and Conor Hughes next home, the latter after a great outside line run.

World Champion Leyton Hughes and Ryan Berry shared the front row for the Ninja Karts 2021 Irish Championship, and the race quickly became a battle between the pair. The lead swapped early on, and then Berry clawed himself a few kart lengths of a gap out front. Hughes came with a late charge to close in, but Berry had all under control and took the biggest win of his career in some style as he was crowned Irish Champion. Hughes was excellent value in second ahead of Riley Dawson-Stirling, Ryan Abernethy and Noah Teggart after a great places battle too.

The reverse grid Irish Revenge saw a deserved win for Cullybackey’s Keegan Turtle after first across the line Hughes was docked two places for contact by the Stewards. That elevated Caolan Fegan to second with Hughes having to make do with third.

Round five of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI saw local star Thomas Dilly take both heat victories as the National Hot Rods looked sensational at full speed under the lights. Barry Stephen and Simon Kennedy followed him home in heat one, before Kennedy and Andrew Stewart filled the places in heat two. The extended distance in the feature race final was always going to bring the star men into play, and early leader Dilly had no answer to the flying Derek Martin and Glenn Bell who had scythed through the pack together. Martin held on for an impressive win over Bell, John Christie and Shane Murray.
The final race of the night for the National Hot Rods was the 2021 Ulster Championship, lined up on lap time order from during the night and featuring the ‘choose-cone’ rule at 5 laps to go. Bell set the pace from the off with Martin in second ahead of Christie and Murray. At the choose cone caution period Martin dramatically decided to go outside and come up alongside Bell for the 5 lap dash to the flag. A sensational few laps followed, but Bell hung on to add the Ulster to his British title won at the same track earlier in the month. Martin kept him honest in second ahead of Christie, Murray and Jaimie McCurdy.

The Lightning Rods saw Ally Neill take the opening heat win after an early battle with Mark Corry, with Nigel Jackson taking second in the end over Ronan McNally. Heat two fell to newly crowned British Champion Ricky Shaw, with Jackson again impressing on his way to second over Mark McCambridge.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final saw Jackson on pole, and he would never be challenged all the way to yet another win for the World Champ. Neill impressed too in second, ahead of McNally, Ethan Dilly and Dylan McCann.

Some fantastic Stock Rod racing completed the programme, with former World Champion Stevie McNiece taking the opening heat win over Ryan Andersen and Marc Morrell, after Hannah Mongahan had led for much of the distance. Rapid young star Mark Crawford took the heat two spoils ahead of Mark Overend and McNiece.
The final was another superb race, with Overend setting the pace for much of the distance before McNiece powered past on the outside line in a super move. As Stevie took the chequered flag, Overend had a morale boosting second over Dan Shannon and Jonny Cardwell.

Meath racer Mike Flaherty secured his third Unlimited National Bangers Shamwreck title at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, overcoming a competitive field to take a fantastic win.
With an excellent turnout of race fans on hand, there were also Tullyroan Challenge Cup successes for Portadown’s Jordan Rochford in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Chris Hamill from Gawley’s Gate in the 1300 Stock Cars. Birches driver Jordan Robinson drove a tremendous race to land the silverware in the Superstox.

Whilst numbers were down by recent Shamwreck standards, a quality field of Unlimited National Bangers lined up to contest the opening heat. That fell the way of Mike Flaherty, the two-time previous winner finishing ahead of Davy Patton and Stephen Boyd. There was a huge wrecking train on the back straight which went down well with the crowd. The main Shamwreck event saw the top four from the earlier heat start at the front of the field, and it was Flaherty who led from flag to flag to complete his hat-trick of Shamwreck titles having previously won in 2011 and 2018. In a destructive race, Leonard Dunn came home for second ahead of Patton and Chris Herron.

The Allcomers race fell to former World Champion Steven Bolton ahead of Dunn and Jonny Rutherford, before the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby went the way of Tony Gillespie. Dunn took the Best Presented car award, the Best Wreck fell to Jake Neill whilst Entertainer of the Day was voted as Marty McKiernan.

Once again the Superstox fielded an excellent grid of over twenty cars, including a debut for Steven Shields and a return to racing for Nathan Beattie. Brian Lammey led the way early on in heat one, before Graham Meek took over out front. With four laps to go star grader Jamie McCann arrived on the scene, bumpering his way past to take an emphatic win over Meek and Craig McConnell. Heat two followed a similar path on the very busy track, but this time Meek was able to hold off McCann’s last bend lunge to record his first ever victory in the formula. McCann and Conor Murphy filled the places.

The clutch start final saw Liscinda Smyth lead the field away until she lost out to Meek on lap five. A couple of early cautions in the incident packed early laps helped the star men into contention, and when a third caution was called with four laps to go it was Jordan Robinson who was holding sway out front. The restart and run to the flag were simply superb, with Robinson and McCann swapping the lead as Lee Davison, McConnell and Kyle Beattie gave it their all to get on terms. Robinson was ahead when it mattered most, taking a great win that was applauded by the fans ahead of McConnell, Beattie, McCann and Murphy.

The Tullyroan Challenge Cup was the main event for the 2.0 Hot Rods, with Scottish Champion Jason Secker making the trip to join the action. Gary Butler and Jordan Rochford contested the lead in the opening heat, with Jordan getting the verdict at the flag ahead of Butler and Michael Woods. Heat two saw a great flag to flag win for Feargal McNally in his new car, with Adam Hylands and Drew McKeown next home.

Rochford and Adam Heatrick shared the front row for the final, but Jordan had all under control and he slowly edged clear to take a dominant win. Heatrick was a gallant runner up ahead of Hylands and Butler.

Sixteen 1300 Stock Cars came to grid for their opening heat, including debutants Davy Wilson and Simon Lamont and welcome English visitor Jacob Roff. The opening heat was action packed with the bumpers put to great use. The finish was superb, with Roff taking first blood for the English over Chris Hamill and Robbie Wright. Gary Elliott, behind the wheel of his injured brother Ivan’s championship winning car, made short work of the field in heat two from his yellow grade start to take an emphatic victory over Hamill, the latter getting the best of a fantastic last lap tussle with Michael Logan and Lamont.

The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final saw Hamill and Roff immediately get into battle, swapping and changing the lead on each lap. Hamill made the telling move though, nudging Roff wide in a blow he couldn’t get back on terms from. Hamill reeled off the final laps to take the win, with Roff great value in second ahead of an impressive Elliott and Thomas McCrory.

Despite horrendous conditions at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, the drivers put on a fantastic show for the hardy race fans who braved the elements. Ballinderry’s Jonny Cardwell added the Irish Stock Rods Championship to the British title he won earlier in the season with a hard fought win, whilst Dungannon’s National Champion Derek Martin scored a heat and final double in the National Hot Rods. Other feature race wins fell to Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods), Ballycastle star Andrew McLean (Thunder Rods) and young Loughgall ace Matthew Weir (Junior Productions).

Conditions were horrendous as a fine field of Stock Rods set off for their prestigious Irish Championship race. After an early caution period after front row starter Marc Morrell was left stranded mid track with mechanical woes, Randalstown’s Sam McNeice set the pace out front. Kells driver Shane McMillan then found a way past but as they encountered heavy backmarking traffic he had Jonny Cardwell and Joe Largey breathing down his neck. Cardwell found the gap he was chasing down the back straight and took up the running, racing home to the Irish title ahead of Largey and Stevie McNiece.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a fine drive from Ballymena’s Adam McFall net him the win over Dan Shannon and Morrell, after early leader Victor McAfee hit problems.

The elite National Hot Rods division were contesting round four of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with Ian McReynolds leading until halfway in the opening heat before National Champion Derek Martin surged past to take the win over Shane Murray. McReynolds then made good his escape early in the second heat and held on for a morale boosting victory, with Martin this time the runner up.
In the 35-lap final McReynolds held sway out front until the halfway stage, where Martin scythed past to move clear. A late caution period as they entered the final stages closed the placemen together and put a whole different complexion on the last ten laps. Martin kept his cool however, retaining control to take the win ahead of Murray and Glenn Bell.

Returnee Ethan Dilly set the pace in the opening Lightning Rods heat, before World Champion and renowned rainmaster Nigel Jackson powered around the outside to take an outstanding win over Ally Neill. Neill then just held Jackson off to claim the heat two honours on the sodden circuit.
The final saw another masterclass from Jackson, as he gave a demonstration of wet weather driving to annihilate the field to complete his double for the evening. Mark McCambridge and Neill chased his home in the podium places.

Another big field of Thunder Rods saw the budget racers produce some close, competitive action, with Clifford Gordon and Andrew McLean disputing the heat one lead before Mark McLaughlin managed to nip past to take the win. From then on it was all about McLean, as Andrew made the most of his generous yellow grading to take the wins in both heat two and the final. Following him home in the feature race were Sam Preston and McLaughlin.

The young guns in the Junior Productions coped admirably with the wet conditions all evening. Dungannon lad Aaron Dynes scored a clear win in the opening heat over Matthew Weir and Sam Percy. Irish Open Champion Jack Morrow then took the win in heat two after demoting the impressive Lacey Bevan late on. The final saw Dynes out front early on but he had no opposition to the flying Weir, as Matthew soared past to take the silverware in some style ahead of Percy and Morrow.
