The weather tried to dampen the spirits at the Aghadowey Oval Gala Night last Friday, but everyone was still able to enjoy an excellent fireworks display and some great racing on track. Portadown’s Glenn Bell was victorious in the seventh round of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods whilst Andrew McLean came through to be crowned Thunder Rods Irish Champion. The other big winners at the meeting, sponsored by Wilson McCurdy Haulage and McCurdy Fuels, were Kells ace Derek McMillan in the Stock Rods King of Aghadowey and Portadown’s Max Hobson who took a hat-trick in the Ninja Karts.

The sodden conditions led to some very good racing from the National Hot Rods in Round 7 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Kenny McCann led them away in the opener before losing out to Simon Kennedy. Carl Sloan was the one to watch though, swooping superbly around the outside to take up the running and on to the victory in some style despite Glenn Bell closing near the end. McCann was again the first to show in heat two before Podge McQuaid underlined his excellent recent form by moving ahead. Podge held on for the win ahead of a great places scrap between eventual runner up Ian McReynolds, Bell and Shane Murray.
From pole position Bell quickly secured the lead in the final, and despite the best efforts of Sloan to keep in touch, Glenn stormed home to the victory. Sloan was an excellent runner up for another decent haul of points, with Murray, Adam Hylands (in the borrowed Dynes Ginetta) and Jaimie McCurdy next home. Bell also collected a superb trophy and four new Hoosier tyres as the winner of the season long Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions points championship.

It was very wet on track as James Goldie and Ryan Campbell led the excellent field away for the Thunder Rods Irish Championship. Goldie held sway out front despite a couple of race suspensions, with Andrew McLean tracking his every move. McLean got his opportunity down the back straight with just over 5 laps of the 25 remaining, assuming the lead and racing home to a fantastic title win. A storming finish for the places saw Lee McCloy grab second ahead of Ryan Campbell, Steven Elder and David Wilson.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw Elder race home to the win as he revelled in the awful conditions. Glen White and Jerome Doherty filled out the top three.

A fantastic twenty six Stock Rods came under starters orders during the evening for the King of Aghadowey title, with British Champion Shane McMillan racing home to the opening heat win after a tremendous race. Victor McAfee tracked him most of the way but couldn’t find a way past, and he settled for second place ahead of a sensational drive from Derek McMillan from the rear of the grid. Marc Morrell’s efforts on the outside line earned him fourth spot. Derek McMillan easily took the win in the second heat from the front of the grid this time to earn himself pole spot for the final, with Ed Davis and Stevie McNiece filling the top three after second on the road Stuart Agnew was later disqualified.
There were a couple of early race suspensions early in the final as front row starter Shane McMillan got leaned into the wall and left stranded, but his brother Derek was already on a charge and opened up a healthy lead. Derek raced home to the King of Aghadowey title, a great way to sign off for the season having lost so much of the campaign due to illness. McAfee, Morrell, Stephen McCready, Gary Butler and McNiece filled out a star studded top six after another excellent night’s entertainment from the formula.

The young stars in the Ninja Karts were fantastic in the wet conditions, with Max Hobson going through the programme unbeaten for a sublime hat-trick. Lauren Berry and Irish Champion Lacey Bevan chased him home in the opening heat, with Matthew Weir and Bevan filling out the top three in heat two. The final was a great race, with Hobson again taking the honours ahead of Bevan and Weir.

Three new Irish Champions were crowned at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday after an evening of top flight short oval racing. Portadown's European Champion Adam Hylands added the Irish Championship title to his collection when he romped home to victory in the 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst World Champion Lee Davison added the Superstox Irish title to his CV. The 1300 Stock Cars Irish title race saw Willie Stewart victorious after a controversial event, whilst the other victories at the Derek McMillan Commercial Refinishers sponsored meeting fell to Graham Meek in the Junior Productions and Scotland's Bailey Millar in the Ninja Karts.

Adam Hylands and Stuart Cochrane shared the front row of the grid for the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship, with Hylands getting the break when Allen Cherry got out of shape and baulked Cochrane in an explosive start. Glenn Bell and Gary Wilson settled into second and third as Hylands edged clear, whilst most eyes were on Stephen Emerson who was making great progress from down the grid. As Hylands romped home to the title win, Emerson relegated both Wilson and Bell to take a well deserved runner up spot, with Bell completing the podium in third.
The reverse grid Irish revenge race saw Joel Richardson take the win over Emerson and Hylands.

The Superstox Irish Championship grid saw Lee Davison on pole position as he displayed his World Champion's gold roof for the first time. Sean Mark started alongside and he made several early attempts to unseat Davison from the lead but with no success. Stephen Stewart and then former Irish winner Kyle Beattie took turns in second, with Beattie especially looking as though he could perhaps erode Davison's lead. When oil went down making the going very slippery indeed, it looked as though Beattie may just get on terms with the leader, but Davison remained clear out front to take the flag and the Irish title. Beattie was great value in second ahead of Stewart and Mark.
There was a great battle in the Irish Revenge race between Stewart, Mark, Davison and Beattie, with Beattie coming out on top after the bumpers were put to very good use. Stewart and Mark chased him across the line.

The 1300 Stock Cars Irish Championship ended in controversial fashion, when on the road winner Josh McKinstry failed post-race scrutineering on his car for a front suspension issue. That elevated Willie Stewart to the title win ahead of Peter Greer and Robbie Wright. On track the race itself had been an excellent encounter with pole starter and pre-race favourite Wright well and truly taken out of contention on lap one by Nicky Lowry. Greer burst through to the lead but McKinstry soon nudged him wide to take up the running and take the chequered flag.
The Irish Revenge race saw Anthony McIvor out front before Jamie McCann swooped past to take the win over Wright and Stewart. The night's racing finished with a winner takes all Dash for Cash, kindly sponsored by Supreme Car Wash and Tyres. There was some great action on the opening lap which allowed Jamie Hunter to break clear. Jamie held on until the last lap, when a timely nudge from Wright earned him win the and the cash prize.

James Stewart took a deserved win in the opening Junior Production heat of the evening. Adam McFall and Sam Percy chased him home, whilst there was also a formula debut for Marke Crawford. Aaron Ward took the chequered flag in heat two but was unfortunately docked for going well before the green flag came out. Stewart inherited the win, with Drew McKeown and the relegated Ward next up.
The Grand Final of the 2ke Engineering Young Guns Series was lined up on aggregate points from across the series, with Irish Open Champion McFall leading them away but tracked right from the off by Scottish Open Champion Graham Meek. Sam McNeice and McKeown were also right in contention in what was a very close and excellent race. Meek eventually found a gap inside McFall to hit the front and he romped home to the series win ahead of McFall and McNeice. There were race tyres and trophies for the top three courtesy of series sponsors 2ke Engineering, whilst third place finisher McNeice was also crowned NI Points Champion.

The Ninja Karts field was boosted by three visiting Scottish drivers, Bailey Millar, Rachel Kidd and Dougie Kidd, as well as newcomer Ryan Abernethy Jnr and returnee Cole McGann. Millar was on a real charge in the opening heat, scorching through the field to take the win over Lauren Berry and Lexi Crooks. The young Lanarkshire ace was on a charge in heat two as well, coming from the back of the grid to just pip long time leaders Ryan Berry and McGann in the closing stages.
Aggregate points gave Millar pole position for the Stars of Tomorrow Challenge, and he duly raced clear to take the title in outstanding fashion and complete his hat-trick for the day. Max Hobson and Rachel Kidd chased Bailey over the line.

The horrendous track conditions at a very wet Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night didn’t dampen the action on track, as the drivers put on some tremendous racing on a treacherous raceway. Nigel Jackson successfully defended his Lightning Rods Irish Championship title after a sterling drive, whilst fellow Portadown star Glenn Bell guided his National Hot Rod to a successful defence of his Ulster Championship crown. Dublin’s Gary Butler took victory in the Grand Final of the Stock Rods PC Paints & Components Challenge Series which had its fair share of talking points, whilst the other feature race wins during the Hankook Performance Tyres sponsored meeting fell to Denver Grattan in the 2.0 Hot Rods and fellow Banbridge driver Jonny Teggart in the Thunder Rods.

There was an explosive start to the Lightning Rods Irish Championship race, as polesitter Jordan Rochford ran wide into turn one on the sodden track taking fellow front row starter Nigel Jackson with him. That opened the door for Tim Hazlett to hit the front ahead of Mark Corry, with Jackson settling into third spot. Nigel quickly dealt with Corry, before running down leader Hazlett. Jackson always excels in the slippery conditions, and he swooped right past Hazlett to hit the front of the title race. A mid race caution when Aaron Stewart’s engine expired in a huge way didn’t stop Jackson’s run to the title win, Nigel taking the flag in style to record yet another Irish Championship triumph. Richard Stewart managed to get past Hazlett for second having started well down the grid, with Tim having to settle for a creditable third place.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw a fine win for Ally Neill, with Jackson returning to second from the back row of the grid ahead of Ricky Shaw.

Welcome Republic of Ireland visitors Dave Casey and Jeff Riordan bolstered the National Hot Rods grid for the Ulster Championship, with a unique Formula 1 style qualifying system in use. The slowest drivers on the lap timing clock were eliminated during Q1 and Q2, leaving the fastest trio of Glenn Bell, Shane Murray and Jaimie McCurdy to battle for pole position during Q3. McCurdy and Murray swapped times back and forth, but Bell was the master of the conditions to grab pole spot for the championship race in sublime fashion.
As Bell raced clear from the off in the Ulster Championship event, Murray settled into second ahead of Ben McKee as McCurdy hit trouble and retired. Casey’s pressure on McKee saw him grab third spot but up front Bell was home and dried to a successful defence of his title, with Murray and Casey filling out the podium.
The reversed grid Grand National saw Keith Martin fight off a spirited challenge from Bell to just hang on for the win, with Murray and Casey next home.

Another huge field of Stock Rods took to the circuit, the rude health of the formula underlined by a posse of twelve star graders lining up at the rear of the grid. Johnny McCloy set the pace early on in the opening heat, leading for much of the distance before Del McLaughlin slipped past with three to go to record the victory. Lee Wylie took second ahead of McCloy, with some huge battles amongst the main pack behind. McLaughlin repeated the dose in the second heat, this time leading from flag to flag for his second win of the evening. British Champion Shane McMillan drove a great race to take second ahead of fellow star grader Stephen McCready and McCloy.
McMillan and Stevie McNiece shared the front row for the Grand Final of the PC Paints & Components Challenge Series, with McMillan setting into the lead as McNiece got railroaded on the outside groove. Gary Butler continuously whittled down McMillan’s lead as the race progressed, arriving right with him as the five laps to go signal was shown. Butler tried his best to pull off the outside pass but Shane was equal to his every move and coolly thwarted each of his attempts. Onto the last lap and Butler switched back to go for a gap on the inside, with the duo sensationally tripping over each other as they headed onto the back straight. McMillan got turned aside and his hopes were unfortunately gone. Butler took the flag ahead of Marc Morrell and Derek McMillan, and he was allowed to keep the series victory after a very lengthy Stewards Enquiry into that explosive final lap.

Michael Woods set the early pace in the opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods, before Allen Cherry came charging past to take the win over Stephen Emerson and Adam Hylands. Denver Grattan demoted Woods early in heat two to go on to take his first ever 2.0 Hot Rods victory, with Emerson and Hylands once again in second and third.
Grattan again hit the front early on in the Hankook sponsored final, edging out a healthy lead. Emerson worked his way through to second, but as he began to close on the lead his engine expired in the biggest possible fashion which blanketed the circuit in smoke. Grattan emerged from the haze to take his second win of the day and elevate himself to the blue grade for the next meeting, with Thomas Dilly taking an impressive second and Cherry third.

The Thunder Rods completed the programme, with Jonny Teggart taking a clear win in the opening heat over Josh Goligher, as the star men failed to make an impact on the busy circuit. Goligher turned the tables in heat two to take the win over Teggart, with Steven Elder this time in third.
The final saw the two heat winners, Teggart and Goligher, have a monster scrap for the silverware once they found a way past early leader Elder. Josh and Jonny swapped places back and forth, before Teggart settled in out front. A momentary slip from him though allowed Goligher back alongside but Teggart powered back around the outside to take a superb victory over Goligher, with Jerome Doherty announcing his comeback to the formula with a creditable third.
