The new oval racing season burst into life at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with some fantastic racing keeping the big crowd entertained throughout the opening meeting. Portadown’s Thomas Dilly took the honours in the headlining Simpson Race Exhausts World Series round for National Hot Rods, whilst Cloughmills driver Sean Mark raced to a heat and final double in a very well subscribed Superstox formula.
Nutts Corner’s Michael Woods took a faultless hat-trick in the 2.0 Hot Rods, with Portadown’s Mark Corry and Essex racer Christian Murray taking heat and final double wins in the Lightning Rods and Ninja Karts repectively.

Podge McQuaid put his superb new Lotus Exige to good use in the opening National Hot Rods heat, as he led for most of the distance to record the win over a rapid looking Adam Hylands who had him under serious pressure towards the end. Thomas Dilly and Simon Kennedy were next across the line. Kennedy was the one to watch in heat two, as his newly liveried Vauxhall Tigra took a decisive win ahead of Dilly’s Ginetta and the Mercedes of Ben McKee.
The final was easily the race of the night, as Dilly got himself out front and invited allcomers to wrestle the lead away. McKee initially tried the outside line, before Hylands attempted the difficult pass time and again. Adam drew alongside and sometimes ahead, but Thomas used all his experience the hold them all at bay and take a great win. Hylands was excellent value in second ahead of McKee, McQuaid and Shane Murray.

A fantastic field of 25 Superstox arrived in the pits to do battle at the season opener, boosted by World Champion Nick Roots and his brother Dan from the south of England. It was a fine start to their World Championship year at Aghadowey, with the big one scheduled to be contested in September.
On a very busy track, Sean Mark relegated early leader Brian Lammey to take the heat one win over Graham Meek and a rapid looking Craig McConnell in his new WRC car. It was McConnell who then powered through to take the heat two win, ahead of Jamie McCann and Lee Davison after Curtis Greer was penalised from second for jumping the start.
The final saw drama aplenty as the bumpers were put to good use. Mark again worked his way ahead early on, edging out a healthy lead as the star men squabbled. David Beattie, another in a new WRC chassis, was driving superbly to cut down the deficit, and on the final lap he went for a last gasp lunge at the leader. He was just too far back though, and his gallant efforts only succeeded in seeing him spin out of contention. That handed second to McConnell on the run to the flag, ahead of World Champion Roots in third, with the race ending in spectacular fashion as Kyle Beattie went for a rollover on the exit of turn four.

A pleasing field of sixteen 2.0 Hot Rods took to the grid, with the promise of more to come in the next few weeks. Michael Woods was the man of the evening, winning both heats with ease and then repeating the feat in the final, and that even after a promotion to the blue grade.
The opening heat Scott Cochrane and welcome returnee Jamie McCann chase Woods over the line, before Michael finished ahead of Denver Grattan and McCann in heat two. The final Saw Woods get a great jump from the front of the blue garde and he left the rest trailing in his wake. Cochrane and Gary Fowler completed the top three ahead of McCann and Jordan Rochford.

A new era for the Lightning Rods dawned with the first meeting under the new rules, with BMW’s now joining the Sierra’s on the grid and everyone on the new control tyre. Formula debutant Dean Catherwood in a beautiful BMW led the way in the opening heat, before being overhauled on the final lap by Stuart Agnew who took the win. Heat two saw the first ever BMW win, as Mark Corry raced his example to victory lane over Mark McCambridge and Agnew.
Corry quickly got ahead in the final, and despite the best efforts of McCambridge, British Champion Ricky Shaw and Agnew, Mark held on the complete the double and the dream start for his new car.

A very pleasing six newcomers lined up for the opening Ninja Karts heat, with Essex based Christian Murray taking the win after a great outside run to pass the impressive Jack Morrison in the closing stages. Heat two saw Caolan Fegan out front setting the pace, until Ben Hawe pulled off a fantastic move on the final lap to snatch the victory.
In the final Morrison held the initial lead, but caution periods wiped out his advantage at the front. Murray soon took over at the head of the pack, Christian romping home to his second win of the night which sees him upgraded to the blue grade for the next meeting. Riley Dawson-Stirling and Fegan completed the top three.

A fantastic afternoon of racing at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday heralded the start of 2022 in style. Young Londonderry star David Gurney came out on top of the headlining Big Van Bangers as he took the aptly named ‘Van-dalism 2022’ title. An action packed Rookie Bangers New Year Challenge fell to Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd, whilst the other feature race winners of the afternoon were Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods, Cloughmills driver Sean Mark in the Superstox and up and coming Dungannon driver Aaron Dynes in the Junior Productions.

As always at the New Year meeting, the Big Van Bangers topped the programme. The Van-dalism 2022 race was first up and saw an entertaining encounter, as Stevo McGrath did his best to block the track and take out as many others as he could! David Gurney survived all the attempts to remove him, taking the win in style over Brian Mullen in his huge bus and Rodney Herron.
McGrath and Tony Gillespie did their best to destroy each other in an action-packed Allcomers race, with McGrath taking the chequered flag as Gillespie’s van all but disintegrated! Tony somehow returned it for the Destruction Derby, but he was beaten into submission by Simon Lamont who took a fine win. Gillespie was quite rightly awarded the Best Wreck and Entertainer of the Day awards.

A huge field of Rookie Bangers produced some spectacular action with almost 40 cars on track for the opening heat. Dublin star Deano McGrath raced to the heat one victory over Gavin Gamble, before Gamble then took a fine win in heat two over Ryan Nixon and Matthew Nicholl in another action packed encounter.
The final was a superb race, with John Goligher and Stephen Boyd disputing the lead entering the final stages. Goligher went ahead at what looked like the perfect time with a lap to go, but Boyd came steaming back into the final bend, punting Goligher wide and into two parked cars. Boyd took a sensational last gasp win, with Goligher managing to get home in second ahead of William McFaul.

Formula debuts for brothers Ryan and Jordan Dilly plus a welcome visit from Kieran Burke bolstered the Lightning Rods field on a very slippery raceway, with every race of the day only decided on the very last lap! Mark McCambridge led most of heat one before losing out to James McKinney right at the death, and then Nigel Jackson just pipped Ally Neill to the flag in a drag race out of the last bend to take the heat two spoils.
In the final it was Ethan Dilly who led the way for much of the distance, but once Jackson broke free from the pack he began closing in at quite some rate. He arrived on Dilly’s bumper with a lap to go, and found a run up the inside to out drag Ethan to the line to grab the victory by the smallest of margins – 0.025 seconds.

Amongst the Superstox grid were debuts for Nathan Clarke and Saloon Stock Car star Ryan Wright, as former World Champion Lee Davison proved to be the man to beat on the treacherous surface. Lee swooped past long time leader Sean Mark to take the opening heat win with Kyle Beattie in third, before repeating the feat in heat two. Jordan Robinson was runner up this time ahead of David Beattie.
Disaster struck for Davison in the final as he hit mechanical problems early on and his hat-trick hopes were dashed. Mark made a fine start from the yellow grade once again, and this time Sean wouldn’t be caught as the Cloughmills man took the flag and the silverware to mark his return to form in some style. Robinson and Craig McConnell filled the podium places ahead of Steven Haugh, Brian Lammey and Nathan Beattie.

Welcome Scottish visitors Liam Loggie and Jack MacLeod joined the Junior Production regulars for the day, with the field also boosted by debutant Jake Devlin. It took three attempts to get the opening heat underway as the youngsters struggled on the greasy track, and once they did get going they produced a cracking race! Aaron Dynes led early on before the chasing pack of star names caught up towards the end. Jack Morrow went ahead before he tangled with Chelsy Rainey, which opened the door for Loggie to take a superb victory. Rainey and Dynes filled the places ahead of a demoted Morrow.
Morrow made no mistake in heat two, taking a great win ahead of Dynes and Declan O’Connor. The final saw Dynes make an early break for the front, and despite the best efforts of the chasing Morrow and O’Connor, Aaron held on to record a very popular win, the first feature race victory of his career.
