Kells driver Shane McMillan continued his superb summer in the Spedeworth Stock Rods by taking a great victory in a riveting British Championship at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening. In a title race blighted by heavy rain, Shane kept his cool to hold off a quality field from right across the British Isles. On a full evening of championship race action, kindly sponsored by S McAfee & Son of Ballymena, there was also a British Championship win, this time in the ProStocks, for Glenavy’s Dan Shannon whilst Ballymena’s Adam McFall was victorious in the inaugural Irish Open Championship for the Junior Productions. Glenn Bell was the winner of the National Hot Rods final, with fellow Portadown driver Davy Wright victorious in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The action then switched to Tullyroan Oval on Sunday, where Falkirk’s Chris Lattka won a fiercely contested Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup from a quality entry, whilst fellow Scot Bailey Millar won the Keir Millar Memorial Trophy for the Ninja Karts. To make it a tartan trio, David Frame from Lanarkshire took the victory in the Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup. The only local winner at the meeting, sponsored by Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm, was Glenavy’s Dan Shannon in the ProStocks Irish Open Championship, as County Waterford’s Pat Casey took the other feature race win in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

Thirty three Stock Rods came under starters orders for their British Championship qualifying, with defending champion Chris ‘Gunner’ Lattka from Scotland the first to show in heat one. He lost out to a fast moving former World Champion Stevie McNiece, as the Enniskillen driver took the win over Shane McMillan and Chris Hamill. Heat two saw Cambridgeshire’s Daniel Rea set the pace for much of the distance before Ballymena’s experienced Micky McFall slipped past to take the victory ahead of Ahoghill’s World Champion Marc Morrell and Rea. The final heat saw a fine win for Scottish lady racer Siobhan Martin, who raced home to the flag after outfoxing Jonny Cardwell on a now sodden track.
The track was awash as they took the green flag to get the British Championship final underway, with pole sitter Morrell taking up the gauntlet ahead of Martin. Siobhan looked the quicker of the two, but when she eventually went for the outside pass she lost out and fell down the field. McMillan assumed second before Morrell sensationally went out with a broken driveshaft.
A caution quickly followed for a Brown Trout Bend incident, with McMillan assuming the lead on the restart ahead of Cardwell, Englishman Rea and Ballymena veteran Victor McAfee. McAfee was looking on top form, but he and Cardwell eventually tangled which eliminated both from proceedings. A great recovery drive from Martin brought her right back onto the leader’s tail, but McMillan had all under control as he rounded out the final laps to take the British Championship title. Scotland’s Martin and Moira’s Stuart Agnew completed the podium, with another two Scots in Gary Dean and Lattka next over the line ahead of Rea at the end of a superb title race.

On Sunday another great field of Stock Rods arrived to do battle for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. The opening heat saw the first of the Scottish wins of the day, as Gary Dean held off allcomers to take the flag. Chris Hamill grabbed second late on after Siobhan Martin got into trouble on the back straight. Heat two saw a flag to flag win for the Limerick’s Colm O’Sullivan, with a great places battle falling to Samuel Montgomery ahead of Jonny Cardwell and Surrey’s Eric Walker.
O’Sullivan assumed the lead in the final with the pack squabbling at his heels for the opening few laps. Lattka then seized his chance when O’Sullivan was forced wide, darting ahead to a lead he held right to the flag. England’s Matt Woodcock inherited second and Dean third for a mainland top three, after Hamill was docked from third to fifth for his part in O’Sullivan’s demise during the race.

An influx of Scottish visitors arrived to do battle for the ProStocks British Championship at Aghadowey, with the reverse grid qualifiers falling to twice former British winner Steven Haugh and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. They were not without their drama, and the title race would be no different!
Shannon led from the off ahead of Scottish ace Paul Barron as Haugh went out early on. Joe Largey was making a great effort from down the grid, helped by a number of caution periods, whilst Shannon was executing his restarts perfectly each time to get the break away from the bumpers behind him each time. Shannon was in determined mood and romped home to the title, with Largey great value in second ahead of Barron and Dylan Booth.

At Tullyroan the opening Irish Open Championship qualifier for the ProStocks fell to Glenavy’s Dan Shannon, who picked up where he left off the night before having won the British title at Aghadowey. Adam White and William McFaul chased him home, before Dylan Booth took the second heat ahead of Scotland’s Paul Barron and White.
A great battle for the lead between the trio of Shannon, McFaul and White thrilled the fans during the opening laps of the Irish Open Championship, before White and McFaul found themselves buried hard in the turn four wall. Shannon pulled clear to take his second title of the weekend in some style, as a great battle for second ensued behind him as the positions swapped time and again. Booth was ahead when it mattered most and took the runner up slot behind Shannon, with Barron in third.


Round three of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for the National Hot Rods at Aghadowey saw three fantastic races, with Lurgan’s Ian McReynolds setting the early pace before the closing pack joined him in the closing stages. There was nothing between the top four as they crossed the line in a blanket finish, with McReynolds just holding on ahead of Glenn Bell, John Christie and Mark Heatrick. Heatrick romped home to the heat two victory, whilst behind an awesome battle for second fell to Derek Martin ahead of Christie and the impressive Podge McQuaid.
The drivers had to contend with the worst of the conditions in the final, with Heatrick the early leader from pole position before losing out to a fast moving Martin. Bell was quickly onto Martin’s rear bumper, and the former World Champ seized his chance in amongst backmarking traffic. Bell literally sailed home to the win as the rain became torrential, with Martin, Christie and Jaimie McCurdy rounding out the places.

The first ever Junior Productions Irish Open Championship saw Koddi Wright from Scotland join the locals on the Aghadowey grid, with the keenly contested qualifying heats falling to Graham Meek and Sam McNeice.
Adam McFall had done enough to take pole position for the Irish Open final, and he grabbed the early lead over Drew McKeown and Matthew Nicholl. Nicholl slipped past McKeown in the tough conditions to go second, but he had no answer to McFall who entered the history books as the formula’s first ever Irish Open Champion. Nicholl and McKeown rounded out the podium places.

There were three action packed races for the Ninja Karts at Tullyroan as they contested the Keir Millar Memorial Trophy, held in memory of the young Scottish star who was cruelly taken from us a few years ago. His cousin Bailey Millar inherited the first heat win after Toby Tyson from Cumbria was docked for contact during the race. Millar then powered home to the win in heat two to guarantee himself pole position for the final.
Millar lost out to Tyson off the line in the final, but he quickly swooped back ahead to race home to take the memorial trophy is some style. It was a very emotional win as Bailey hoisted aloft the huge Keir Millar Memorial Trophy in memory of his cousin. Max Hobson took a gallant second ahead of Tyson in third.

An excellent turnout of Superstox at Tullyroan included a debut for Ally Neill and a return for Darren Bevan after some time away, and it was welcome Scottish visitor David Frame who came through the field to land the opening heat victory over Chris McArdle and Lee Davison. There was a very welcome first ever win for Jackie Harris in the second heat, the former Hillclimb and Sprint Champion showing the rest a clean pair of heels in his immaculate car to lead home McArdle and Frame.
Frame quickly went ahead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Davison giving his all to stay in touch. As they headed for the last bend Davison went in with a huge lunge, making contact but failing to dislodge Frame from the lead. David thus took the title win, with Davison and Kyle Beattie completing the top three. A special Dash for Cash race, jointly sponsored by the Moffett Family and LMC Trade Sales, concluded the day and fell the way of Davison after novice Brian Lammey had led for much of the distance.

Mervyn Emerson made the most of his yellow grading to take the opening heat win in the 2.0 Hot Rods at Tullyroan, holding off British Champion Stuart Cochrane and Brian Cherry at the flag. Cherry improved in the second heat to take the win over Emerson and European Champion Adam Hylands.
The final looked as though it would boil down to a fight between Emerson and Hylands for the silverware, as the duo lapped side by side whilst battling for the lead. An awkward touch between the two heading out to the back straight saw them both career out of control, glancing the wall and spinning out of contention. The opened the door for Pat Casey, and the Co Waterford man duly accepted the lead and the win to make his long journey home even sweeter! Gary Wilson and Conor Hughes were second and third after a great battle for many of the closing laps.

An excellent entry of 1300 Stock Cars rounded off the Aghadowey programme, with some fine action on show all evening. Former ProStocks ace Davy Wright grabbed the opening heat win ahead of impressive novice grader Lee Topping, before Jamie McCann had an excellent run to glory in heat two over Robbie Wright and Nicky Lowry. The final was run in awful conditions, with Davy Wright grabbing his second win of the evening to earn himself a rise in grade for the next meeting. Jack Kearney had a fine run to second ahead of Willie Stewart and Robbie Wright.

In our latest points update, Leonard Dunn has been crowned 2017/18 Fast Paintworx DMC Points Champion in the National Bangers. Dunn has had a fantastic season to retain his crown, and will take his place in the Unlimited World Final at Ipswich alongside defending World Champion Steven Bolton who came home second in the standings. Stephen Boyd took third and will also make the trip to Ipswich for the biggest event of the year. Well done to all the drivers after another great season of National Banger racing.

Jordan Rochford has moved to the top of the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship for Lightning Rods. He holds a healthy lead over Tim Hazlett, with Ricky Shaw and Nigel Jackson next in line. Jordan also leads the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series points after Sunday's second round, with Mark Corry and Ricky Shaw completing the top three. After just one meeting in the 2019 World Qualifying Points, novice grader Adam McCann tops the chart after his great meeting on Sunday, with Corry and Rochford tied for second.

After two rounds of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods John Christie sits proudly on top of the chart, with Carl Sloan and Thomas Dilly in second and third respectively. Finally, Adam McFall holds the lead in the Junior Productions 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series ahead of Sam McNiece and Drew McKeown.

There were thrills and spills aplenty at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon as the Micro Bangers contested their annual Teams Championship. That fell the way of north west based outfit Bad Company, with Stephen Boyd taking the feature final victory for them. Other final winners at the JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd sponsored event were Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Lee McCloy (Thunder Rods), Adam Weir (Junior Productions) and Lexi Crooks (Ninja Karts).

The Micro Bangers started quite literally with a bang, with Ian Crowley taking a huge hit on the Tullyroan Bend which unfortunately will see him sidelined for a time - we wish him a speedy recovery from his injuries. Karl Smyth emerged from the chaos to take the win for Bad Company, with him team mates filling out all of the top five places. Heat two also saw an early stoppage, with Leonard Dunn having a huge rollover into turn one. From the restart National Hot Rod star Adam Maxwell surged clear to take the win over William McFaul and Steven Bolton.
The final saw yet more action all around the circuit with Boyd storming through to the victory to seal the Teams Championship for Bad Company A. Maxwell and Boyd rounded out the podium, before Smyth went on to win an entertaining Destruction Derby in which the Bad Company boys turned on each other to entertain the fans. Dunn, McFaul and Boyd celebrated with the Teams Championship trophy with Bad Company A now the undisputed kings of the local Banger scene.

The Lightning Rods were contesting the second round of their 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, with Adam McCann sealing victory in both heats from the white grade. In the opener he just held off Mark Corry at the line, before narrowly beating Scott Cochrane across the stripe in heat two.
Aggregate points from the heats saw McCann and Corry share the front row. Corry immediately hit the front, with Rochford quickly attacking from behind. Rochford then spent numerous laps on the outside in what was a superb dice, before swooping ahead into the lead to take a very impressive win which had the fans applauding around the stadium. Corry and Mark McCambridge completed the top three, the latter in a new car after his recent big crash.

Making a rare Tullyroan appearance were the Thunder Rods, and Londonderry driver Davy Gurney led the opening heat despite heavy pressure from James Goldie. Goldie then clashed with Lee McCloy, which allowed Gurney to break free and take a clear win over McCloy and Joshua McMullan. McCloy took a great win in heat two after an intriguing race as he and Goldie circulated side by side for many laps. McCloy got the verdict at the line, with Goldie and David Baird next up.
McCloy quickly went ahead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Andrew McLean gamely trying to stick to his tail over the opening laps. McCloy edged clear and on to an impressive win, with Goldie nipping past McLean late on to snatch second.

It was Round 2 of the 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series for the Junior Productions, with Adam Weir debuting a superb new Vauxhall Corsa C. Aaron Ward led Callum Magill for much of the opening heat, before Magill found a gap on the final lap. The duo raced to the line side by side, with Magill getting the verdict by the slimmest of margins. They both set the pace in the second heat too, before Graham Meek swooped past to take the flag. He was adjudged to have jumped the start though, and was demoted to third place which handed Magill his second win of the day with Ward second once again.
The closed grid final was always going to bring the star men into play, with Meek the early leader until a caution for Ward hard in the wall on turn one. Thankfully there was no serious injury to Aaron, and at the resumption there was some very untidy driving throughout the field. Through the drama Weir emerged ahead to christen his new machine with a fine win, with Meek and Drew McKeown filling out the top three.

Leyton Hughes and Lexi Crooks disputed the lead in the opening Ninja Karts race, until a caution period saw their advantage wiped out. That allowed Max Hobson to get a run on them at the restart, Max taking the win after an impressive drive from the back of the grid. Heat two saw Hughes out front, with Hobson again bearing down fast. The two ran side by side to the chequered flag, with Hughes just getting the verdict by inches at the line for a great win.
In the final Hughes again led Crooks, with a similar story to before as Hobson was closing them down fast once he had worked his way past the others. Lexi managed to slip under Leyton to take up the running and she held out on front to take a fabulous win over Hobson, with Hughes ending up in third.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, JMC Mechanical & Construction Ltd
