Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy put his recent run of poor form firmly behind him with a decisive victory in the National Hot Rods Final at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. On a night of great racing, there was an emotional victory for Lee Davison as he won his brother Neil’s Memorial Cup in the Superstox, whilst Dublin’s Jonathan Compelli took the honours in the 2L National Bangers Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
A great race for the lead in the Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup saw Antrim’s Leyton Hughes just snatch the win, whilst Glenavy’s Mark McCambridge took the honours in a controversial Lightning Rods final.

The very healthy Ulster National Hot Rod scene was bolstered by yet another new recruit, Antrim’s Dean McCrory, for Round 3 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Scotsman Barry Stephen drew first blood with victory in the opening heat over Carl Sloan, before Ian McReynolds led them all home for a fine heat two victory over European Champion Shane Murray and Simon Kennedy.
Stephen set a great pace at the start of the final, but soon had Jaimie McCurdy chasing his tail as they headed towards half distance. Sloan was right there too, as was Murray until the latter was eliminated by the Stewards for a loose door on his Ginetta. McCurdy powered clear out front as Stephen faltered, Jaimie taking the chequered flag for a morale boosting victory over Sloan and Adam Hylands.

The first running of the Neil Davison Memorial Cup for Superstox saw a fine grid take to the track, including former World Champion Barry Stephen who doubled up with the National Hot Rods to give himself a very busy evening! James Stewart was the star man during the heats, the sixteen-year-old racing clear to claim victory in both to qualify on the pole position for the final. In the opening heat he bumpered Conor Murphy wide on the final lap to take the lead, before a more decisive win in heat two.
The setting was dramatic under the floodlights as the cars came to grid for the first running of the event, held in memory of the former racer who sadly passed away a year ago through illness. Stewart was spun off straight away as the green flag came out, as Neil’s brother and British Champion Lee Davison powered ahead. A huge crash in the main pack brought out the yellow flags, and at the resumption Davison again eased ahead to land an emotional win that visibly meant so much to him. It was the perfect result with a family one-two as Jordan Robinson came through to the runner up slot, ahead of Stephen in third.

There was some frantic action during the 2L National Bangers Tullyroan Challenge Cup race, with some huge hits handed out all around the circuit. Jonathan Compelli broke clear early on to move ahead, with second man Leonard Dunn eliminated late in the race on the home straight. As Jonathan took the win, his brother Paul Compelli came through for runner up ahead of Paul Stafford.
The Allcomers race was another hard hitting affair, with Dunn somehow managing to return to the grid after some sterling efforts in the pit area. He even had a spell out front early on before Mike Flaherty took over, but it was Jonny Murdock who got the win at the flag over Stevo McGrath. The Destruction Derby again saw Dunn take to the grid when it had looked as though his day was over, and he played his part in a great event with McGrath and Murdock. McGrath got the verdict and the win at the death with Dunn’s heroics, both on and off track, earning him the Entertainer of the Day.

A four car battle right to the line in a fantastic Ninja Kart opener saw Ryan Abernethy just get the verdict ahead of Ryan Berry and Noah Teggart, before newly crowned British Champion Leyton Hughes won the second heat with Berry and Teggart the placemen once again.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final turned into a tremendous dice between Hughes and Berry, with absolutely nothing between them all the way. They swapped the lead time and again, but it was Hughes who got ahead when it mattered to take the win despite Berry’s best efforts on the final turn. Ryan should be very proud of his efforts, as the ‘Ninja Master’ Leyton added yet another trophy to his collection.

A very good entry of Lightning Rods was boosted by welcome visitor Adrian Gleeson from Tipperary, with Mark Corry making good use of his drop to blue grade with a fine heat one victory over Ally Neill. Neill then went one better in heat two, taking the chequered flag in front of Ronan McNally and European Champion Aaron Stewart after a great run around the outside line.
Peter Wehrly and then Dylan McCann had spells out front in the final, before Corry’s speed carried him onto the tail of the leading car. Mark worked his way onto the outside line chasing the lead but McCann totally misjudged his line out onto the back straight and ran Corry up the wall and out of the race. McCann too had damage, and that took him out of the race before the Stewards could intervene. Suddenly Mark McCambridge found himself ahead, and he withstood late pressure from Aaron Stewart to take a win that looked so unlikely only a few laps previously.

A huge weekend of oval racing was enjoyed by drivers and fans alike over two days of competition at both DMC Race Promotions circuits. The action commenced at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday before continuing at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday. The big winner of the weekend was Ballinderry ace Jonny Cardwell, who scooped the Stock Rods British Championship title whilst England’s Jack Witts won both the Irish Championship and Irish Masters in the visiting National Ministox formula. The latest round of the National Hot Rods World Series NI saw Portadown’s Adam Hylands come out victorious at Tullyroan on Sunday.

A huge field of Stock Rods assembled for the 2021 British Championship, with three qualifying heats shared between defending champion Derek McMillan, Jonny Cardwell and Adam McFall. Siobhan Martin from Scotland qualified on pole and led the final early on, before Cardwell found a gap on the inside that edged Siobhan wide and ultimately out of the race. A number of caution periods couldn’t dislodge Cardwell from the top spot, and he raced home to the chequered flag, and his first major title victory, ahead of McMillan. Stevie McNiece claimed third spot after a raft of penalties were handed out amongst the pack for contact.

Sunday saw the Irish Open Championship up for grabs for the formula, with McMillan and young Randalstown star Sam McNeice claiming the heats wins. McMillan then powered away from the front of the grid in the final, taking victory over impressive sixteen-year-old McNeice with Scottish lady racer Martin in third.
National Ministox

Playing a great supporting role was the first Ulster visit of the National Ministox. The formula, more regularly seen on the English circuits, put on a great show in their awesome little ironed-up Mini’s, with the Irish Championship up for grabs at Aghadowey on Saturday. Jaden Key and Joelan Maynard (twice) shared the three heats, before the drivers lined up under the floodlights for the inaugural LJN Designs sponsored Irish decider. Sam Critchley set the early pace ahead of Cody Hanson, before a caution period brought the star graders into contention. Multi-champion Jack Witts quickly hit the front on the restart, fending off Kasey Jones to land the title, with Lewis Smith taking third.
Sunday saw even more exciting racing on the Tullyroan circuit, with some fantastic action as Cody Hanson, Maynard and Critchley shared the heat wins. Local racer Abbie McKinstry joined the ranks for the weekend and she led early on in the final before being ousted by Critchley. Witts and Leah Sealy were heading the rush for the front from the superstar grade, and Jack duly hit the top spot to take his second title win of the weekend over Sealy and Evan Bullock. The National Ministox really proved a hit with the local fans and everyone will look forward to a return visit in 2022.

The Junior Productions were racing for the Irish Open Championship, with Ballymena ace Aaron Ward taking the opening heat win ahead of Scotland’s Koddi Wright. Jack Morrow made short work of the second heat to take the honours over Sam Percy and Callum Magill. With similar results in the heats, Morrow won the toss with Ward for pole position in the Irish open final, Jack then racing clear to take the title in style. Percy finished second on the road but was docked two places for contact, handing the runner up slot to Wright with Ward taking third.

On Sunday Ward took victory in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup after a penalty was handed down to on the road winner Morrow. That elevated Ward, who had earlier shared the heat wins with Andrew Woods, to the top step of the podium, with Chelsy Rainey taking second ahead of the demoted Morrow.

On the sun drenched Tullyroan bowl on Sunday the National Hot Rods produced some great racing, with Adam Hylands powering past Nigel McCauley to take the opening heat win. There was a great finish to heat two, with a popular win going the way of Andrew Stewart just ahead of Hylands and McCauley. Hylands then stamped his authority all the final of Round 2 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, taking a decisive win over Shane Murray, John Christie and Glenn Bell.

Support action at Aghadowey on Saturday saw NI Points Champion Drew McKeown from Portadown take the honours in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Series in a superb wet weather drive, after Broughshane’s Davy Kernohan has scored a brace of heat wins. In the Lightning Rods there was also a double heat winner in Ballymena’s Daniel Rodgers, before Portadown’s Ronan McNally came through to take the feature race honours.

Sunday at Tullyoan also saw the Rookie Bangers in action, with Garvagh’s William McFaul grabbing a heat and final double amongst a big field of cars. The other heat fell to Josh Goligher amidst the carnage, with McFaul then getting the better of long time leader Matthew Milliken in the final.

Galgorm based European Champion Shane Murray got his National Hot Rods 2021/22 World Series challenge off to the best possible start when he took victory in a tremendous opening round at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night. On a night of great race action, Antrim’s Stephen Emerson was crowned King of Aghadowey in the 2.0 Hot Rods after another superb race, whilst young Kilmore driver Ryan Berry landed the Golden Helmet in the Ninja Karts. Loughgall’s Jamie McCann was a heat and final double winner in the Superstox, with Coleriane’s Mark McLaughlin taking a similar brace of wins in the Thunder Rods.

A pleasing eighteen car grid lined up for the opening round of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods, with Gilford’s Nigel McCauley taking the first heat win in style ahead of John Christie’s Lotus and Podge McQuaid. Evergreen veteran racer Keith Martin took a popular win in heat two, again ahead of the impressive Christie with Davy McKay this time in third.
In the final McCauley led from the off, but by one third distance Christie had moved to second and quickly launched an assault for the lead. Lap after lap the duo raced side by side, with the rapid trio of Glenn Bell, Derek Martin and Shane Murray closing all the time. Christie almost made the move stick, but then McCauley ran them both deep into the Brown Trout Bend and in a flash the chasers were through. Recently crowned National Champion Martin took up the running and took the chequered flag, but after a lengthy Stewards Enquiry he was demoted two places in the final analysis for contact during the race. That elevated Murray to the win, ahead of Bell in second after a truly scintillating race.

The randomly drawn grid for the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw star man Jordan Rochford on pole position, and he quickly turned that into a win over Gary Butler and Scott Cochrane. Davy Potter led the opening laps of the reversed grid heat two before British Champion Conor Hughes overhauled him on the wide outside line. As Hughes took a great win, Stephen Emerson and Adam Best came through for second and third respectively.
Rochford had qualified on pole spot, and he quickly edged clear out front in the King of Aghadowey final. Emerson moved through to second, and sensed his chance might still come as Rochford got embroiled in heavy back marking traffic. As he came to put a lap on Trevor McConnell, the most minimal of hesitation gave Emerson his chance, and he nipped under Rochford and then outside the backmarker in a fantastic move. Stephen took a tremendous win which at a time looked so unlikely, with Rochford and Best filling the podium slots.

Welcome Scottish visitor Hamish Plenderleith joined the young Ninja Kart aces for their Golden Helmet award, with Ryan Berry coming on strong late on with a fine outside blast to win the opening heat over Andrew Hawe and Ryan Abernethy. Hawe then went one better in heat two, taking victory over Berry and Leyton Hughes.
The final saw Berry lead initially before being passed by Plenderleith who took up the running. As Hamish looked all set for the win, Hughes challenged late on only for the two to clash and go out on the very last bend. Amidst the chaos of that crash, Riley Dawson-Stirling crossed the line first, but he then failed the post race technical checks which handed the win and the trophy to a delighted Berry, ahead of Hawe and Noah Teggart.

Teenager Ryan Dilly took a fine win in the opening Superstox heat, showing a clean pair of heels to chasers Jamie McCann and Lee Davison. Brian Lammey, Odhrann McGeown and Conor Murphy all had spells out front in the second heat, before McCann came on late to take the win over Ed Davis and Irish Champion Kyle Beattie.
Young novice McGeown impressed as he set the early pace in the final, but he had no answer to McCann’s pace as Jamie moved ahead to complete a heat and final double. Davis took second spot, with Craig McConnell netting third after a great battle with British Champion Davison.

Once again the budget Thunder Rods fielded a huge grid of cars, making the going more than hectic all evening to say the least. Mark McLaughlin raced through to land the opening heat over Chris Baird, before novice grader Lucas Goligher took a morale boosting heat two win ahead of Samuel Murphy and Simon McLaughlin.

The final under the floodlights was action packed from start to finish, with Paddy Hannigan setting the pace until he came under attack from all angles late on. McLaughlin found a way past to the front, and even survived a late caution period to take the win over the impressive duo of Jason Darragh and James Goldie.
