Latest News
The new oval racing season kicked off in style at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with a huge turnout of both competitors and spectators. Glenavy’s Dan Shannon took victory in the feature event, the Stock Rods Irish Open Championship, whilst Crumlin’s Adam Maxwell marked his return to racing with a polished heat and final double in the National Hot Rods. Limavady’s Josh Goligher was another heat and final double winner, this time in the 2L National Bangers, but even that couldn’t stop his rivals Team KODS taking the Irish Teams Championship victory. 10 year old debutant Leyton Hughes from Antrim took a heat and final double in the Junior Productions, whilst the feature race winner in the 1300 Stock Cars was Annaghmore’s Robbie Wright.

The local Stock Rods were boosted by a trio of welcome Scottish visitors for the Irish Open Championship, with Joe Largey getting the better of Siobhan Martin to take the heat one win. Martin and Christ Lattka filled the places, before Nutts Corner’s Mark Crawford took a decisive win in heat two by some margin with Mark Foster impressing in second ahead of Shane McMillan.
Aggregate points saw Scots duo Lattka and Martin lock out the front row of the grid for the Irish Open Final, with Lattka showing first out front. Dan Shannon was quickly on the attack, putting a great move on Lattka into turn three to take up the running. Shannon pulled clear to take his first major victory in the formula after a fine drive, with Martin and Lattka filling out the top three.

A record breaking field for a domestic National Hot Rods encounter of 22 cars lined up for round eight of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. The opening heat saw a number of caution periods, with Podge McQuaid leading in his pretty Lotus. Former World Champion Adam Maxwell then pulled off a great outside line move to take the win over McQuaid and Derek Martin. Heat two was the race of the night by some distance, with seasoned campaigner Keith Martin leading the way at the head of the field. Entering the closing stages it became a fierce five car battle for the lead, with Carl Sloan doing his best on the outside line. He dropped back, with Adam Hylands then hauling himself alongside Martin on the run to the flag to win by inches on the line.
The final saw a couple of major incidents that eliminated a number of cars, before it came down to a titanic three way dice for the lead between Maxwell, Derek Martin and Hylands. Despite all that the others could throw at him, Maxwell held on to complete his double for the evening and announce that he was well and truly back! Hylands, D Martin and McQuaid filled out the premier places.

A very respectable entry of 2L National Bangers entertained all evening, racing for the Irish Teams Championship. Josh Goligher took the opening heat for The Hooligans ahead of Mike Flaherty and Dac Patton, before heat two saw Lewis Burke take the chequered flag for Team KODS over Lucas Goligher and Jay Gurney.
The final saw some big hits handed out, with Josh Goligher again grabbing the win over Flaherty and Matthew Nicholl. Going in to the last car moving Destruction Derby The Hooligans led the points table, but Tony Gillespie’s sterling win saw Team KODS leapfrog to the top of the standings to take the Irish Teams Championship title.

Five newcomers completed their ORCi Junior Assessments prior to the opening Junior Productions race, with two of them being Ninja Karts World Champion Leyton Hughes and Irish Champion Ryan Berry. Berry led the field for most of the first heat, only to be nudged wide and out of contention as he and Hughes fought for the top spot. Leyton took the flag ahead of Declan O’Connor, but both were demoted by the Race Stewards for contact. That handed a first ever win in the formula to Lauren Berry ahead of Daniel Stewart. Hughes made no mistake in heat two, holding off Stewart and O’Connor for his first Junior Production win.
Ryan Berry led early on in the final, before he was challenged and passed by Hughes. As Hughes hit the front, Stewart was coming on strong nearing the end but Leyton just managed to hold on to compete a fine double to earn a rise to yellow grade after just one meeting. Stewart was great value in second ahead of Lauren Berry and Stewart Hanna.

1300 Stock Cars Completing the programme were the 1300 Stock Cars, and they produced some fantastic racing with the sparks flying as the bumpers went in hard all night long. Young Ty Richardson put his novice grading to good use to land the victory in the opening heat over Marcus Crossett, before it was Josh McKinstry who took a highly entertaining second heat over Ivan Elliott.
The final was another blinding race, with a late yellow flag bringing the field onto the tail of leader Richardson. Ty showed great composure to hold them all off, and just when it looked like the silverware was his, car problems saw him hesitate allowing Robbie Wright to steal through for a last gasp victory. Richardson had to make do with second ahead of Crossett and Elliott.

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.
