The action was red hot both on and off the track at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with the fans basking in the heatwave sunshine as the drivers produced the goods on the circuit. Portadown’s Lee Davison continued his rich vein of form with victory in The Moffett Shield for the Superstox, whilst Glenavy’s Dan Shannon claimed a dominant win in the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow took the spoils in an incident strewn Junior Productions Golden Helmet race, whilst the other feature race winners were local man Thomas Dilly in the Classic Hot Rods, Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars and Kilrea’s Jordan Nicholl in the Thunder Rods.

A pleasing field of 20 cars took the green flag for the opening Superstox heat, including former F2 European & Irish Champion Craig McConnell on his formula debut. Young Ryan Dilly took the spoils in the opener, before he had a huge race-stopping spill in heat two. Jamie McCann took the heat two victory, before the final got off to an explosive start with Jordan Robinson rolling over on the back straight. At the resumption James Stewart set the pace out front, and after a tremendous four way fight it was British Champion Lee Davison who powered through to grab the Moffett Shield in some style. Kyle Beattie and Jamie McCann followed him home, with Conor Murphy also getting a prize as the first white/yellow grade driver home.

Mark Kilpatrick led the opening Stock Rods heat off before Dan Shannon found a way past to take the win over Sam McNeice and Victor McAfee. Heat two then went the way of former World Champion Marc Morrell over Sam Wilson and Joe Largey. The Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final saw Shannon power away from the front of the grid, coming home to take the trophy some distance ahead of the rest of the field. Morrell impressed in second ahead of McNeice and Shane McMillan.

The young aces in the Junior Productions were chasing the coveted Golden Helmet, presented annually by the McKeown Family. Andrew Woods drove a fantastic race to land the heat one win ahead of Declan O’Connor and Jack Morrow. Sam Percy then raced through to win the second heat having sustained damage in the opener, with Aaron Dynes grabbing his best result to date in second after on-the-road runner up Alexander McCreadie was later removed from all results for misdemeanours in the final.
Dynes went for a huge rollover across the infield at the start of the final, and then a huge crash involving O’Connor and McCreadie brought proceedings to a halt for a second time. Declan spent the night in hospital after the huge spill and we all wish him well for a full and speedy recovery. Morrow didn’t let this affect him though, pulling clear at the resumption to take a fantastic victory and the impressive trophy, with Chlesy Rainey and Percy claiming the podium places after Abbie McKinstry was disqualified for spinning another car from the race.

Local ace Thomas Dilly went through the card unbeaten as the Classic Hot Rods impressed on their return to action. Thomas hunted down the immaculate Morris Minor of Adrian McKinstry in the opening heat, before he held off Andy O’Donnell in the second race of the night. In the final Gerry Rothwell led O’Donnell with just a few laps to go, with Dilly taking to the wide outside line to challenge on the final lap. Thomas pulled himself past O’Donnell, and then just pipped Rothwell to the flag by the slenderest of margins. Behind Dilly, Rothwell and O’Donnell, Adrian Boyle, Paul Magee and Lester McCloy rounded out the finishers.

Plenty of contact was the order of the day from the 1300 Stock Cars as they continue to impress, with Jonny Patterson taking their opening heat victory over Chris Hamill and Gareth Halliday. Belfast man Jon McQuillan then took heat two after the bumpers were well and truly exchanged in the pack, with Matthew Milliken and Halliday chasing him home.
The final saw Milliken break free early on and he raced home to a great victory, with Hamill and Patterson impressing on their way to second and third respectively.

Debutant Jordan Nicholl fairly shook up the Thunder Rods division as he raced clear in the opening heat to land an impressive win over Samuel Murphy and Simon McLaughlin. The star men got much more involved in the second heat as Irish Champion James Goldie took the win over Murphy and Nicholl, before Jordan once again showed the way home in the final. There were a whole raft of penalties handed down in the one, with Murphy and Dean Catherwood grabbing the podium positions ahead of Jason Darragh and returnee Andrew McLean.

Staffordshire driver James Morris was on top if the world as he claimed a dramatic victory in the Cherry Pipes 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship at a sun drenched Aghadowey Oval Speedweekend. The race fans enjoyed a festival of championship racing over the weekend, with local Aghadowey driver Aaron Stewart winning the Lightning Rods European Championship, whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes grabbed the glory in the Ninja Karts National Championship.

A top quality field was assembled for the 2.0 Hot Rods Championship of the World, with Portadown’s Jordan Rochford raising the local hopes with a win in the first of three qualifying heats, before Dublin’s Gary Butler grabbed the glory in heat two. James Morris upheld English honour with victory in heat three, but on aggregate points it was Antrim’s British Champion Conor Hughes and Rochford who shared the front row of the grid for the Cherry Pipes sponsored World Final.
Hughes led them away for 45 laps of the sun baked circuit, with Rochford and Morris chasing hard behind. Defending champion Dave Leech then worked his way through to fourth and began to reel in the leaders as the laps dwindled down. Rochford made his move in the closing stages, getting up alongside Hughes down the back straight. Side by side they came over the line as the crowd held their breath, only for Hughes to run deep into turn one, taking Rochford wide with him.
In a flash Morris accepted the gift of the inside line, the lead and ultimately the chequered flag and World Championship glory after a truly opportunistic drive. He didn’t lead too many laps, but he led the ones that mattered. Leech took second spot ahead of Rochford, Hughes and Stephen Emerson.
Adam Best then took a win in the reverse grid World Revenge race, before doubling up with victory in the Irish Open Championship ahead of London’s Mitch Souter and Morris. It was just reward for Best, who had worked wonders to repair his car after it was extensively damaged in a mid-week testing crash.

The main support act over the weekend was the Lightning Rods European Championship, which produced some fantastic racing. Former World Champion Gordy McKee and current title holder Nigel Jackson shared the heats, but it was local man Aaron Stewart who led them off, although it wasn’t for long as a huge crash brought out the red flags. Stewart again made no mistake at the restart, and he led them all the way home to take the European title ahead of Jackson and McKee.
Sunday’s Irish Open Championship saw heat wins for England’s Richard Norman and Randalstown’s Tim Hazlett. It was Jackson who qualified on pole position and he led the field away, but had Hazlett tracking his every move. Not many find a way past experienced campaigner Jackson, but Hazlett got the smallest of gaps into turn three and he was past and away. Tim then had to fight off a hard charging James McKinney all the way to the flag, but he held on for the win over McKee and Jackson, with McKinney left with just fourth for his gallant efforts on the outside line.

The 6-11 year old Ninja Kart stars came from all corners of the UK to contest the National Championship, with Irish Champion Leyton Hughes snatching the win from Scottish Champion Kenzie Kopacz in heat one. Heat two saw Hughes sensationally repeat the feat ahead of Dougie Kidd and Kenzie Bell. From pole position, Hughes would never be headed in the National Championship race, the Antrim ace leading home Murray Hall and Kopacz at the chequered flag for a fantastic win.

Sunday’s Irish Open Championship saw Bell snatch the heat one win after Stuart Shevill had led most of the way, before Hughes took the heat two honours after having crashed out of the first race of the day. In the final it was Hampshire’s Murray Hall who set the pace up front, with Bell chasing him all the way. After a tremendous tussle, it was Hall who took the win for England over Scottish ace Bell and Northern Ireland’s Hughes.

Over the weekend there was some excellent support action, with Kells driver Shane McMillan being crowned King of Aghadowey in the Stock Rods, but only after his brother Derek had hit transmission issues whilst well clear. The 1300 Stock Cars produced some fantastic action, with the sparks flying as the bumpers well and truly went in during the final under a fantastic sunset. Chris Hamill came through to take the honours in that one, before British Champion Lee Davison shared the Superstox heats with Jamie McCann before going on the take the final honours too.

It was a night of high drama at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday, with some superb racing in amongst some huge crashes and spills. During the hard fought action Portadown’s Gary Grattan took his first ever victory in the 2.0 Hot Rods formula, whilst fellow Portadown star Lee Davison took the spoils in the outstanding Superstox. Randalstown’s Mick Rodgers came out on top of the Stock Rods whilst Glenavy’s Mark McCambridge was victorious in the Lightning Rods. The Ninja Karts rounded off the programme, with Antrim ace Leyton Hughes taking a superb hat-trick of wins.

Drogheda driver Noel Reynolds was the first to show in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, which saw a big incident on the back straight and then another huge crash on turn four, which together eliminated a number of cars. Reynolds continued to lead before Gary Fowler nipped past two laps from home to take the win. A depleted field for the second heat saw Gary Butler this time take the honours, again after demoting Reynolds.
The final saw former Superstox ace Gary Grattan set the pace out front, and despite Fowler getting close over the closing laps, Grattan held on for the first win for his Vauxhall Nova-bodied car. It certainly was a night for the Gary’s, as all three races fell to a different one – Fowler, Butler and Grattan – and they then locked out the top three spots in the final too!

There was yet more outstanding action from the Superstox, and Birches driver Alan Haugh took the win in the opening heat having led all the way, ahead of Ethan Dilly and his brother Steven Haugh. The drama continued thick and fast in heat two, with Ethan Dilly this time grabbing the chequered flag ahead of David Beattie and Alan Haugh.
Another full grid took the green flag in the final which turned into a terrific race. James Stewart and Dilly argued over the lead before two caution periods for big crashes for Paddy Murphy and David Beattie. With the field closed up for the restart it played right into the hands of the star men, with British Champion Lee Davison surging through in style to collect the silverware over Irish Champion Kyle Beattie and Jamie McCann.
The evening finished with a ten lap Dash for Cash sponsored by JMC Custom Paintwork, and after some great exchanges of blows it too fell to Davison. Mark Taylor also put up a nice cash prize for the first white roof home, which went the way of a delighted Dilly.

The Stock Rods were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Chris Lattka, and there was also a very welcome return to action for Victor McAfee after his recent bout of ill health. Joshua McMullan ran out a deserved winner of heat one ahead of Marc Morrell and Shane McMillan, before Cavan driver Ryan Andersen raced home to victory in heat two for his first ever win, with Morrell and S McMillan again the placemen.
Andersen set the pace in the final, but this time is was Mick Rodgers who put his earlier problems behind him to set a great pace. Rodgers soon went ahead, as the main focus became a great places battle between Morrell, Colin McNiece, Shane McMillan and the rapid World Champion Derek McMillan. Rodgers kept them all easily at bay to land a telling and morale boosting win, with Morrell grabbing his third runner up spot of the evening ahead of McNiece.

A very healthy field of Lightning Rods were joined by welcome Tipperary visitor Paul Whelan. A very messy opening heat saw a number of incidents, with Strabane’s James McKinney taking the win after the others did their utmost to trip over one another. James then had a fantastic run around the wide outside line on the final lap of the second heat to take his second win by the narrowest of margins ahead of Ronan McNally.
The final saw visitor Whelan pull clear out front, before Mark McCambridge broke clear from the blue grade to chase him down. McCambridge soon found a way past, and raced clear to land the silverware in some style and lay down a marker ahead of the European Championship later in the month. Whelan impressed in second ahead of McNally and Aaron Stewart.

Scottish lad Kenzie Bell joined the locals for another great Ninja Kart meeting, with Belfast’s Ethan McQuillan being the latest star of the future to pass his Junior Driver Assessment and join the grid for his race debut. Leyton Hughes was the driver of the night, the Irish Champion taking a faultless hat-trick of victories in both heats and the final. Leyton led home Bell and Andrew Hawe in the opening heat, before Ryan Berry and Bell filled the places in heat two.
The feature race final also fell the way of Hughes after he worked his way past the whole field to win from impressive visitor Bell and Noah Teggart.
