Please see below a news item from Deane Wood regarding upcoming rule changes for Superstox:

I have been looking at the Superstox for the last couple of years and feel that they are following the same pattern as the BriSCA F2’s have done and it has not worked for the F2’s and they were a lot bigger than what Superstox are. Therefore, I feel that rule changes have got to come in to start trying to even the cars up. I sit and watch the races and if the conditions and tracks are good the top drives can be in the lead within eleven laps. This is not good for spectators and is not good for lower grade drivers without big budgets.

The first change will be with brakes. You will be allowed a maximum of a 240mm size disc. There will be no machining or grinding of callipers or wheels. Reason, if one of these broke who would be responsible for it? The callipers must be symmetrical from side to side on the same axle and with the same size piston. Other than as stated here the callipers will stay the same as per section 14.1 of the 2018 Superstox Rules & Regulations. We are going to a single brake cylinder. This will work front and back brakes and you are only allowed one single reducer which will be in the line to the back brakes. Brake pads will remain free for next season and I have already had talks with Mintex who are quite willing to make the brake pads and police it for the 2020 season if I feel we need to go further with brakes.

Anti-roll bars from next season will be banned. No torsions arms or any connecting arms from one side to the other on the suspension. In-board suspension will be symmetrical from side to side and not adjustable rockers. The rocker itself will not be adjustable to alter the ratio.

Shock Absorbers from 2020 will be going onto controlled shock absorbers. More details will follow on this. Shock absorbers from 2019, you will not be allowed to change your shock absorbers one your car has been safety checked. Shock absorbers cannot be changed unless damaged. You must get a scrutineer to confirm this. This is to stop people from changing shocker absorbers from wet to dry now we have banned the anti-roll bar. If you are caught changing a shock absorber without permission this will be classed as cheating and therefore you will receive a ban.

If this does not work, then for 2020 I will look into link arm lengths and putting everyone onto the same back suspension.

I know this is going to upset some of the top drivers, but I am sorry I have done a lot of investigating in the last six months and spoken to a lot of drivers who have stopped racing and they feel that the sport in general is getting too complicated and too dear. Therefore, I am trying to keep it inline of not just money but being fun as well. Please do not go on social media and start criticising because this is not good for our sport or the formula. This is not just things I have done on my own, I have spoken to a lot of different people and car builders as well and I have to do what I think is right for the formula to create closer and more exciting racing.

On Sunday November 25th DMC Race Promotions will stage our first ever Back to Basics Bangers meeting at Tullyroan Oval.

This really is what it says on the tin - Back To Basics - with cars running 'on the key', dashboards can be left in, no additional welding permitted and bonnets and boots etc can only be tied with seat belt to secure. For this event only under 1800c petrol cars and under 2000cc non-turbo diesel cars can be used. The Ford Focus and Mondeo or any Honda powered cars are not permitted.

This formula is designed as the entry level fun Banger class ideal for those just starting out or those drivers who want to race with a limited budget. This could well be the meeting to get you off the terraces and onto the track!!

The format has really taken off on the Spedeworth raceways in England, and will hopefully inject some interest into the local Banger scene and bring some new blood on board. Interest in this meeting is already high - please see the full specs on the link below.

Many thanks to our friends at Spedeworth Motorsports for allowing us to use their rules and format for this meeting.

The first of the annual end of season Irish Championships took place at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer and Coleraine’s Lacey Bevan both earning Irish title victories in the Stock Rods and Ninja Karts respectively. Portadown’s European Champion Jordan Rochford was victorious in the Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey, with the same title falling to Ballymena’s James Goldie in the Thunder Rods. British Champion Dan Shannon raced to a heat and final double in the ProStocks, at the meeting which was kindly sponsored by Ross Hyndman Motors of Londonderry.

Curtis Greer and Stevie McNiece lined up on the front row of the Stock Rods Irish Championship race courtesy of points scored during the season, but they didn’t get far at the first time of asking as the red flags came out for a nasty turn four crash. Samuel Montgomery found the wall on the exit of the turn, coming back across the pack and causing big damage for Philip Wilson amongst others. At the restart Greer assumed control out front, with McNiece trying doggedly to hang on around the outside. Jonny Cardwell and Shane McMillan moved to second and third, with Greer edging clear out front. British Champion McMillan found a way past Cardwell at two thirds distance after a minor slip from Jonny, but despite Shane closing on the leader over the final laps Greer had driven the perfect race to add the Irish title to the National and Scottish Open wins he scooped earlier in the season. McMillan was excellent value in second ahead of Cardwell and Marc Morrell.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a commanding win for Stephen McCready, who powered home ahead of Derek McMillan and Chris Hamill. McCready is sure to be a major player in the formula in 2019, having just joined the ever increasing pack on the DMC Race Promotions raceways.

Max Hobson and Lacey Bevan lined up on the front row for the Ninja Karts Irish Championship decider, with Hobson quickly edging ahead of Lauren Berry. Berry spun and lost ground, elevating Bevan back to second before a caution was called when Ryan Berry spun to a halt on the Brown Trout Bend. During the caution Hobson sensationally retired when his chain came adrift, leaving Bevan to lead them away at the restart. Lacey pulled clear out front as the greens came out, with Lexi Crooks and Rhea McConkey giving chase. Bevan completed the final laps to be crowned Irish Champion, her first major title victory in the formula, with Crooks taking an excellent runner up spot in her first season of racing in the formula. Lauren Berry completed the podium finishers after a spectacular recovery from her early spin, completing an all girls top three for perhaps the first time in UK oval racing. All the young stars received trophies for competing in the event from NI Points Championship sponsors ASC Cars, with grade awards also going to Rhea McConkey, Lauren Berry and Matthew Weir.
Hobson bounced back from his Irish Championship disappointment to take the win in the Irish Revenge race, leading home Brandon Litter and Lauren Berry.

Mark McCambridge held off a spirited challenge from European Champion Jordan Rochford to take the win in the opening Lightning Rods heat, the Glenavy man making his Sierra as wide as he possibly could to thwart Jordan’s attempts to pass. Heat two saw a flag to flag win for World Champion Gordy McKee from pole position, with Tim Hazlett impressing on his way to second with Rochford returning to third to claim pole position for the final.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Rochford immediately hit the front, but a brief shower of rain added to the ingredients in this one. Jordan struggled to make his expected break up front on the slippery track, with Hazlett tracking his every move for a time. McKee found a way past Hazlett just past half distance, but Rochford by now was home and dry to a very polished victory indeed. McKee and Hazlett completed the podium finishers.

An excellent field of Thunder arrived to contest their King of Aghadowey title, with the first reverse grid heat falling to David Wilson who held off Andrew McLean and third placed Jonny Teggart. Heat two saw James Goldie on great form as he breezed home to the win ahead of Lee McCloy and newcomer Glen White. There was a huge battle in the main pack in this one which kept the fans more than entertained.
Aggregate points saw Goldie and McLean share the front row for the final, with Goldie quickly settling into the lead. McCloy was right on his case and he slotted into second, and as the race progressed he began to put the pressure on the leader. Goldie was equal to it all though, and he came home to lift the King of Aghadowey crown with McCloy a gallant runner up ahead of Wilson in third.

The ProStocks completed the programme, with Dylan Booth leading heat one before he dropped out with problems. That handed the lead to William McFaul but he was reeled in and nudged wide on the last bend by British Champion Dan Shannon who took a superb last gasp victory. Booth again led the second heat before he was moved aside by McFaul who took the win over Shannon.
Booth again led the way for much of the final, until McFaul bumped him wide to take up the running. Booth came back and tried to spin McFaul out, the duo embarking on an exciting duel for the rest of the race. Booth went in hard into the final bend to dislodge McFaul from the lead, and sensationally succeeded in taking both wide and opening the door for Shannon to steal through for the win! Booth and McFaul were next home after a truly epic race.

In our latest points update there are latest standings for Lightning Rods & National Hot Rods.

In the Lightning Rods, Jordan Rochford has stretched ahead of Nigel Jackson in the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship as we head towards the end of the season, whilst Jordan also leads the 2019 World Championship qualifying points ahead of Adam McCann and Jackson.

After last weekend's British Championship meeting for the National Hot Rods, Adam Hylands sits aloft the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions points championship but has now unfortunately withdrawn fgrom the formula for the time being. That should open the door for Glenn Bell, Gary Woolsey and Shane Murray to fight for the title with two meetings remaining.

To view the latest points, click on 'Drivers' in the menu bar above, then 'Points & Grades' and then select the desired formula from the drop down menu. All drivers should note that, where applicable, their correct grading colour should be applied as laid down in their formula's Rules & Regulations. Checks will be carried out over the coming meetings and offenders may be forced to start from the rear of the field.

The race meeting scheduled for Aghadowey Oval on Saturday October 6th has been postponed, and will now take place on Saturday November 3rd, The start time and formulas racing at the fixture will remain the same for the rescheduled date. This decision has been taken due to the number of drivers and fans wishing to attend the international meeting at Tipperary Raceway on that weekend.
Racing of course still goes ahead this Saturday, September 29th, at Aghadowey Oval.

In another fixture change, the Thunder Rods will replace the Classic Hot Rods at the meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday October 13th. We feel that the Classic Hot Rods entry may not be what we would hope as it will come just six days after the Irish Grand Prix, the second 2 day meeting for the formula in Ireland within three weeks.

DMC Race Promotions would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes.
