Latest News
Everyone at DMC Race Promotions were saddened to learn of the passing of Alan Connolly after a long battle with illness.

Alan reached legendary status on the Ulster ovals in the Stock Rods formula, where he won a whole host of major titles including three World Championship victories in 2000, 2002 and 2003.

Alan also campaigned a 2.0 Hot Rod with us at Nuttscorner Oval, and his final racing was some memorable outings in the National Hot Rods in a rapid Peugeot 206. Many had tipped him as a future major champion in the premier formula, but unfortunately illness forced him to hang up his helmet before that potential could be realised.

In recent times Alan continued to enjoy trips to his local Aghadowey circuit and always kept a keen interest in the racing right up until his untimely passing.

Davy McCall, Darren Black and everyone associated with DMC Race Promotions would like to express their deepest sympathy to Alan’s family and friends at this difficult time, and also to his lifelong friend Rodney Wallace.

The funeral service will take place at 11am on Tuesday 6th March at First Ballymoney Presbyterian Church

An exciting afternoon of international Banger racing at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday saw the race fans treated to some top class action. Through the chaos Team Sour B came out on top to land the coveted Irish Teams Championship, with the title chase going right down to the wire in the final event of the day. There was a dream National Bangers debut for former National Hot Rod World Champion Adam Maxwell, as he steered his Mondeo to a perfect win in the feature race final. In the supporting classes at the Hogg's Bar, Loughgall sponsored meeting, there were victories for Scotland's Bailey Millar in the Ninja Karts and Glenavy's Mark McCambridge in the Lightning Rods, whilst Portadown's Lee Davison took a faultless hat-trick in the Superstox.

An excellent entry representing 15 teams gathered for the annual 2L National Bangers Irish Teams Championship, including some very welcome English and Scottish visitors. Irish Champion Leonard Dunn wasted little time in declaring Bad Company's intentions of retaining their title as he raced home to victory in the opening heat amidst carnage on track. The action came thick and fast, with World Champion Steven Bolton and Adam Maxwell filling out the places. Heat Two saw yet more spectacular hits, as England's Ricky Hutton took the win for Team Sour B ahead of Team Buckle B's Bolton and Matt Butcher from Team Sour C. Some superb pit work saw another good field returned for heat three, which fell the way of England's Mark Marchant for Team Sour B as only three cars went the distance.
There was an early stoppage in the final as Willie McFaul took a hefty knock on the back straight, as Maxwell and Hutton disputed the lead out front. Maxwell took a sensational win on his class debut, with Hutton's second putting Team Sour B well clear in the points race. A very impressive 20 cars returned for the DD, which saw Ryan Patton go for a rollover across the infield. At the resumption of hostilities the action centred on turn one, which some tremendous hits being dished out. Hutton eliminated his rivals to take the win and the title for Team Sour B over their stablemates Team Sour A, with Team Buckle B in third place. Hutton, Gary Lee, Paul Stafford and Mark Marchant celebrated their title triumph in style.
At the end of a very toughly fought meeting, Bad Company's Karl Smyth took both the Entertainer of the Day award and the Best Wreck trophy. Karl's Vauxhall Zafira took a battering all afternoon but he kept returning for more, until it was totally obliterated in the DD.

With their World Championship being staged in Northern Ireland this season, it was pleasing to see a great field of 21 Lightning Rods take to the grid for their opening heat. There was an early stoppage in heat one when Jonny McMillan lost a wheel, whilst Tam Agnew was given an early bath for spinning Chris McGirr. Tim Hazlett took up the running but had no answer to the flying Nigel Jackson, the Irish Champion sweeping past to take the victory over Ricky Shaw. Hazlett made no mistake in the second heat, getting the better of a battle for the lead to take the win in the sodden conditions over Jackson and Vince Litter.
The final saw a great battle out front as heat winners Jackson and Hazlett challenged leader Mark McCambridge. Hazlett went out, and despite the gallant efforts of Jackson it was McCambridge who held it all together to take a morale boosting feature race win. Jackson, Feargal McNally and Shaw filled out the top places.

The open wheeled Superstox coped admirably with the tricky conditions, with James Turkington leading the way before losing out to a flying Lee Davison. Davison was in superb form, taking the chequered flag over Stephen Stewart and Turkington, before repeating the dose in heat two with another great win with Stewart again in second. Turkington again set the early pace in the final, but was helpless to hold back Davison who powered through and on to record his hat-trick, celebrating with a 360 degree spin over the line. Stewart, David Beattie and Turkington filled out the places.

The local Ninja Kart stars were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Bailey Millar, and he would feature in the premier places all afternoon. The star of the heats however was Lacey Bevan, as she drove two fantastic races to take both victories. In the opener Lacey just held off a fast closing Millar, before reaching the chequers ahead in heat two despite Millar and Max Hobson bearing down on her fast. The final saw most of the field delayed by an opening lap skirmish, which left Ryan and Lauren Berry well clear out front. Millar was first to break free from the pack in his new SLS kart, and his quickly chased down the leaders to power ahead and take the silverware back across the Irish Sea. Irish Champion Daniel Stewart took second ahead of Hobson and Jack Morrow.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hogg's Bar of Loughgall

- all blocks to remain standard
- engine buy out clause of £350
- no slotting of pulleys permitted on Vauxhall engines

To view the full rules click on the link below, and hopefully this reduction in the cost of racing will see the fields grow during 2018 and produce the spectacular racing which the formula is renowned for!

The Big Van Bangers thrilled the large festive crowd at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday afternoon, with some excellent action served up on track. Dungannon's Uel Reid steered his way through the mayhem to grab the Van-dalism title on his first ever outing, whilst Ian Bolton landed his sixth Reliant Robins Irish Championship. Other feature race winners at the Cirrus Plastics sponsored meeting were Tam Agnew (Lightning Rods), Stephen Murray (Rookie Bangers) and David Beattie (Superstox).

An excellent entry of Big Van Bangers arrived to chase the Van-dalism title, with the action starting straight away as Stevo McGrath gave Irish Champion Leonard Dunn a heavy fencing on the Annaghmore Bend. Dunn picked up some heavy damage as World Banger Champion Steven Bolton and newc omer Uel Reid contested the lead. Dungannon man Reid came through to claim the win as Bolton floundered late on. Dublin's Paul Gaffney entertained in the Allcomers event as he used his huge van to stop everyone else. The one who avoided the chaos was Davy Patton, the Armagh man taking the chequered flag in his Transit.
There was more superb entertainment in the Destruction Derby, with Gaffney demolishing everything in his way to claim the win. Conor Kelly took quite a battering and it earned him the Best Wreck trophy, with Gaffney also taking the Entertainer of the Day trophy.

Neil Martin set the early pace in the Reliant Robins 2017 Irish Championship title race, the points champion squabbling with Ian Bolton and John Stewart for the early laps. Bolton was mastering the slippery conditions to perfection, and he powered past on the wide outside line to land his sixth Irish title win in great style. Stewart and Martin filled out the podium, with Martin later on winning the Irish Revenge race after a great tussle.

Former ProStocks World Champion Tam Agnew was the star of the Lightning Rods as he took a brace of wins including the feature race final. In the first heat Tam pulled clear to record the win over star men Richard Stewart, Nigel Jackson and Jordan Rochford. Despite leading most of the way in the second heat, Magheralin's Agnew lost out late on as Jonny McMillan slipped through for the win ahead of Vince Litter and Agnew.
Agnew again stretched clear in the final, only to see his lead wiped out by a caution period when Martin O'Donovan struck the turn one wall. That brought Litter, Jackson and Stewart right into the mix but Agnew was equal to it all and powered home for his second win of the day. Litter, Jackson, Stewart and Ricky Shaw filled the places.

The biggest field of Rookie Bangers to date put on three excellent races, with plenty of nudging and spinning all around the raceway. Conor Finegan powered home to the heat one victory in his Honda ahead of Mark Kierans, before Stephen Murray emerged out of the pack to take the chequered flag in heat two over Christy Bradley.
Murray made no mistake in the Cirrus Plastics sponsored final, surging clear to take his second win of the day over Finegan and David Mooney as the Rookies once again impressed many.

With no star graders present the lower graded drivers had a chance to shine in the Superstox, with James Logan powering through to take victory in the opening race of the day ahead of James Turkinston. Turkington went one better in the second heat, taking the win over Gregg Hyndman and Sean Mark. The final belonged to David Beattie, as he stamped his authority all over proceedings with an emphatic win. Hyndman, Turkington and Mark filled out the places.
