Dublin based ‘Team Sour A’ were victorious in an entertaining Rookie Bangers Irish Teams Championship at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. Paul O’Connor took the final win to help his outfit to the teams title, whilst the other victories at the George Fegan Tyres of Belfast sponsored meeting fell to Kilrea’s Joshua McMullan in the Thunder Rods, Newtownabbey’s Aaron McNeilly in the Superstox, Glenavy’s Dan Shannon in the ProStocks and Birches driver Robbie Wright in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The Rookie Bangers racing was action packed all evening, with the rapid Peter McConnell from Team Chancers taking the opening heat ahead of The Hooligans’ Josh Goligher and Paul O’Connor from Team Sour A. Phillip Farrell steered his way to heat two victory for The Hooligans over Deano McGrath and McConnell, leaving the points delicately poised heading into the final.
O’Connor made a quick getaway in the feature race, leaving the rest trailing in his wake as he negotiated the carnage amongst the pack. Paul raced home to the win with his Team Sour A team mate Ger O’Beirne riding shotgun in second. That was enough to allow the Dublin based team to successfully defend their title, with The Hooligans in second ahead of Team Chancers.

The Thunder Rods made their first visit of the season to Tullyroan with an excellent twenty car grid. William Donnell took the opening heat victory in only the second outing for his new car, fending off a spirited outside line challenge from David Wilson with Jason Darragh in close company in third. The reversed grid heat two saw Gavin Gamble lead for much of the distance, before he lost out to a hard charging Christopher Baird. Baird took the win over Joshua McMullan and Gamble.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final paired Wilson and Donnell on the front row, on what was a very difficult track after the Bangers had laid down copious amounts of fluid. Donnell got the better of Wilson early on, using the cleaner outside line to get ahead. Wilson fought back in determined fashion, with McMullan getting in on the act too. Joshua worked his way to second and then hit the front after a great run around the outside of Donnell. As Joshua edged clear to take the win, Wilson’s determined drive came to nothing as he lost ground late on. That left Donnell to collect the runner up trophy ahead of James Goldie in third.

The Superstox saw World Champion Lee Davison debut his superb new RCE car, only to be unfortunately sidelined during heat one with a blown engine. Novice grader David Beattie was the man to watch in the opener, spinning fellow front starters Paddy Murphy and Darren Bevan to race clear to the win. Aaron McNeilly and Conor Murphy chased him home. Beattie was again well clear in heat two only for mechanical issues to force him into retirement. That left Conor Murphy out front, but the fast moving Jordan Robinson moved ahead with three laps to go to take the victory over McNeilly and C Murphy.
The final saw Darren Bevan impressively lead early on, before McNeilly swooped to take up the running. Robinson found a way past C Murphy to go second at the mid point, but despite closing on the leader it was McNeilly who took a well deserved victory after a fine drive. Robinson was great value in second ahead of C Murphy, with Stephen Stewart the first star man home in fourth.

Teenage novice grader Gareth Halliday was the star turn in the 1300 Stock Car heats, taking both victories with ease to earn himself a rise to the yellow grade for the final. In the opener Ryan Stewart and Calvin Blake chased him home, whilst Jack Kearney and Robbie Wright filled the places in the second heat.
The final was the second round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, and it saw a great battle early on between Halliday, Kearney and Stewart. Blake then arrived on the scene with a big hit to unsettle all three and take up the running. Recently crowned Open Scottish Champion Robbie Wright was soon on his tail, the pair swapping blows and the lead before Wright made good his escape to take the flag and a new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors. Blake and Nicky Lowry rounded out the podium finishers.

As always the ProStocks entertained as they contested the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. David McKinnon and Iain Browne contested the lead in the first heat before losing out to Sam Stewart, but star man Dan Shannon soon arrived on the scene to bumper them all wide and take the win over Stewart and McKinnon. Shannon again grabbed the spoils in heat two, this time forcing a way past the lead battle between McKinnon, Stewart and Dylan Booth. Stewart snatched second on the last lap ahead of former World Champion Alan Haugh on his return to racing.
A Tullyroan Bend melee saw the first attempt to get the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final underway aborted. At the restart Shannon and Haugh contested the lead, before the yellow caution flags came up for a huge turn two crash which eliminated Booth, David Browne and Joe Largey, the latter having gallantly changed an engine after a blow up in practice. Shannon cruised home to take the win and complete his hat-trick, with the minor places all declared null and void due to technical issues at post race scrutineering.

Ballinderry’s Jonny Cardwell added yet another title to his CV when he claimed victory in the Stock Rods Irish Masters at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon. Jonny held sway out front ahead of a packed international field to record the win to add to his Irish Open success of earlier in the season. Another big winner was young Mark Crawford who steered his way home to the Junior Productions Irish Open Championship, whilst the other feature race winners at the JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd backed event were Portadown’s Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods), Meath’s Anthony Morgan (Classic Hot Rods) and Ballymoney’s Timmy Davidson (Back to Basics Bangers).

Once again three qualifying heats were required for qualification for the Stock Rods Irish Masters, with the entry headed by newly crowned European Champion Derek McMillan. National and Irish Champion Curtis Greer took the opening heat win ahead of a tough battle for second between Gary Butler and Micky McFall. Heat two saw Jonny Cardwell the man to beat as a huge battle raged in the midfield. Cardwell took the win over Stephen McCready and England’s Max Bradburn. The third qualifier saw McMillan take a clear win over Dan Shannon and Niall McFerran.
Cardwell and leading Scottish lady racer Siobhan Martin shared the front row for the Irish Masters final, with Cardwell the first to show over McCready and Martin. It was so close lap after lap, with literally nothing between the top runners. Butler got past Martin to go third, before McCready mounted a brave late bid for the title. He dragged himself right alongside leader Cardwell on the tough outside line, but despite his best efforts he just couldn’t make it stick in the end. Cardwell crossed the line to lift the Irish Masters title, with McCready great value in second ahead of Butler and Martin.

Scottish driver Koddi Wright led the visiting entry for the Junior Productions Irish Open Championship, which saw defending champion Adam McFall take the opening heat win over Sam McNeice and Matthew Nicholl. Mark Crawford stamped his authority all over heat two with a fine victory, leading home Jack Morrow and Graham Meek at the flag.
McFall and Crawford led them away from the front row for the Irish Open final, but McFall unfortunately clashed with Meek early on which eliminated both from the proceedings. Crawford had all under control though as he completed the 20 lap distance to take the flag and the title. Behind the Ballymena driver, Jack Morrow had his best result to date in second ahead of Sam Percy, after third over the line Matthew Nicholl was disqualified for a technical infringement.

The Lightning Rods excelled all afternoon, producing three superb races. Ronan McNally led much of the distance in the opening heat until challenged by Mark Corry. Nigel Jackson, Jordan Rochford and Richard Stewart were right in the mix too over a fantastic last few laps, with Jackson using all his experience to land the win over Stewart and Martin O’Flaherty. Ally Neill was back in a Lightning Rod for his first outing in quite some time, and he led the second heat until challenged late on by O’Flaherty. Martin drew right alongside over the last few laps, but Neill held on for the win, with Corry taking third.
McNally and Neill disputed the lead in the final, with the star graders pulling themselves onto terms as the race progressed. Jackson produced a stunning outside line run to move from fifth to the lead, followed closely by a very impressive Ricky Shaw. Shaw looked marginally quicker as the laps ran out, but Jackson had enough to keep things under control and take his second win of the day. Shaw, Stewart and Rochford completed the places at the end of a great day for the formula.

It was great to see a good field of Classic Hot Rods present, with Gerry Rothwell heading Adrian Boyle in the opener. Clive Richardson squeezed past to take the win over DMC promoter Davy McCall and Anthony Morgan. Richardson and McCall were never far apart for the rest of the afternoon, Clive taking another victory in heat two over Davy after a breathtaking battle.
If the second heat was close between old Shamrock Park foes Richardson and McCall, the final was even closer as they traded paintwork time and again, but always with the utmost of respect. All the while though Morgan was inching ahead out front and he took the honours in some style, with Boyle taking second ahead of McCall who had sneaked past Richardson late on with an audacious move into turn three.

The Back to Basics Bangers are the real entry level class of oval racing, and it was local man Alan Haugh who took the first heat in his Ford Puma, having traded places with his brother Steven who had to make do with second. Alan Haugh then nearly rolled in heat two, whilst Steven was also on the end of a hefty knock on the back straight. Josh Goligher romped home to the win after another entertaining race, with Gary Simmons in second.
The final was a cracking contest, with loads of action before leader Timmy Davidson lost out to Goligher. A backmarking Steven Haugh then took Goligher out of contention, allowing Alan Haugh to hit the front. As he cruised to what looked like his second win of the day, a jammed throttle saw him crash out on the very last lap! Davidson couldn’t believe his luck as he raced past to grab the silverware.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd
