Veteran Dungannon driver Keith Martin took a morale boosting victory in the eleventh round of Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI for the National Hot Rods at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. Keith held off a late charge from Glenn Bell and Adam Hylands to scoop the spoils of victory, whilst other feature race winners at the meeting, sponsored by Bell Building, were Glenn Bell (2.0 Hot Rods), Robbie Wright (1300 Stock Cars), Tim Hazlett (Lightning Rods) and ace Daniel Stewart (Ninja Karts).

Seventeen National Hot Rods took to the grid for Round 11 of Hankook World Series NI, with Kenny McCann the first to show in heat one before being relegated by Portadown’s Andrew Stewart. As Stewart cruised home to the flag, Gary Woolsey was on a charge to second, which later became the win when Stewart was docked for contact on McCann during the passing manoeuvre earlier in the race. Keith Martin and the docked Stewart filled out the top three. Stewart built up a clear lead in heat two, but reigning NI Champion Shane Murray quickly whittled down his advantage to slip past and take the victory over Martin and Stewart, with Woolsey fourth after an excellent outside pass on Adam Heatrick.
Martin and Woolsey shared the front row of the final, with Keith quickly assuming top spot as Adam Hylands and Glenn Bell hovered all over his rear end. A short caution period for a fire in Philip McCloy’s car gave Martin some time to catch his breath, but the rapid Portadown duo were right back on his case once hostilities resumed. Keith used every ounce of his experience to hold them off all the way home to the victory, with Hylands netting second by the slenderest of margins over Bell.

Scotland’s World Champion Gordon Alexander was a welcome addition to the 2.0 Hot Rod ranks as they contested the opening round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Sean Dynes took up the running in the opening heat before two caution periods for incidents on the Tullyroan Bend closed the field right up. Dynes used all his skill to just hold off Stephen Emerson at the flag, with Allen Cherry in third. Davy Potter was the pacesetter in heat two, and as the laps dwindles down Dynes and Irish Champion Glenn Bell were right with him. A great battle ensued over the final laps with Potter taking a deserved win despite Bell’s attempts on the outside line which saw him just lose out by a fraction with Emerson snatching third.
Dynes and defending Hoosier Series Champion Emerson shared the front row of the grid for the final on aggregate points, and right from the off they battled side by side for the lead. Dynes ran slightly wide out onto the back straight, and in a flash Bell was through past the top duo and into a lead he wouldn’t lose all the way home to the win. Glenn received the trophy sponsored by his family firm, and also a new race tyre courtesy of series sponsors Hoosier. Emerson, Adam Hylands and Cherry filled out the top four.

The heavy metal 1300 Stock Cars were contesting their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Robbie Wright storming through from his new star grading to take the heat win one over Jon McQuillan and Nicky Lowry. Heat two saw Wright again continue his recent rich vein of form with another polished win, with Josh McKinstry and McQuillan this time the place men.
As seems to be the norm these days, the final was the race of the night for the formula as Wright hit the front from pole position. The bumpers were flying in on an action packed opening lap, leading to a caution period to see to a stranded Adam McMullan on turn four. Wright controlled the restart and kept the others at bay, powering home to the Tullyroan Challenge Cup ahead of Peter Greer and Willie Stewart.

Another huge field of Lightning Rods entertained the large crowd who were enjoying the warm, sunny weather, with Jonny McMillan continuing his great start to the season with victory in the opening heat of the evening. Jonny just held off a spirited challenge from Tim Hazlett, with Mark McCambridge in third. McMillan again led heat two until a caution period was called for an on track incident. Unfortunately for Jonny he didn’t catch sight of the yellow flags and continued on at full speed to pass a number of backmarkers, leaving the stewards no option but to disqualify him for overtaking during the caution period. That handed the lead to James Litter which he turned into the win by holding off Stephen Hollywood and European Champion Jordan Rochford.
McMillan soon hit the front in the final hoping to make amends for his heat two mistake, but he had no answer to the flying Hazlett who quickly assumed the premier position. Rochford worked his way through to second as he chased his third final win in a row, but it was Hazlett who comfortably held on for a decisive victory over Rochford, McMillan and Hollywood.

The young stars in the Ninja Karts completed the race programme, with six-year-old Leyton Hughes making a very accomplished debut. Irish Champion Andrew Stewart was in a class of his own all evening, taking the heat one win over an impressive Lauren Berry and Max Hobson. Daniel repeated the feat in heat two, taking the chequers ahead of Berry and Lacey Bevan after a mid race stoppage when Brandon Litter rolled out of contention after clipping the spun Kart of Andrew Hawe. Brandon thankfully escaped uninjured from what was a huge crash.
Ryan Berry was first to show in the final, before losing out to his sister Lauren who again was showing a great turn of speed. Stewart arrived on the scene just after half distance though, swooping past to complete a faultless hat-trick and take the Bell Building sponsored silverware. Berry and Hobson completed the podium places.

Packed grids across the five classes on show at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night produced some fantastic racing that entertained the race fans on a fine late spring evening. European Lightning Rod Champion Jordan Rochford from Portadown continued his great run of form with victory in the opening round of the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, whilst fellow Portadown racer Robbie Wright took the first round spoils in the 1300 Stock cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series to continue his fantastic run in his new formula. Other feature race winners at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored event were Magheralin's Stuart Agnew in the Stock Rods, Portadown star Adam Hylands in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Coleraine's Ryan Campbell in the Thunder Rods.

The Lightning Rods continued their great start to 2018 with an entry that once again reached the 20 car barrier. Novice graded Ronan McNally led the opening heat away but Jonny McMillan quickly surged ahead from the yellow grade. Jonny led all the way home to take the first win of the night over Mark McCambridge and James Litter. McNally again led heat two on a packed raceway, before a late caution allowed Tim Hazlett through to land the win over Ricky Shaw and Mark Corry.
Aggregate points from the heats formed the grid for the final with Hazlett assuming the early lead from pole position ahead of Rochford. An intriguing battle developed between the duo as the race progressed, with Jonny McMillan getting himself involved for a time too. Rochford time and again drew alongside Hazlett but just couldn't make it stick, but disaster then struck for Tim as he got outfumbled amongst the heavy backmarking traffic. That allowed Rochford to race clear for another win and with it a generous voucher courtesy of the series sponsors. Shaw and former World Champion Scott Cochrane filled the places at the end of another breathtaking night for the Lightning Rods.

Also in mini series action were the 1300 Stock Cars, making their first DMC appearance of the season for the opening round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Gary Elliott and Jamie McCann contested the lead in the opener before new season sensation Robbie Wright powered through to take the win over Elliott and Josh McKinstry. Heat two saw a very ragged rolling start, and unfortunately for Wright it meant a two place demotion in the final analysis after he had again taken the chequered flag. That handed the win to Elliott ahead of McCann.
If the heats had been entertaining, the final was nothing short of explosive! McCann led early on before losing out to Wright, with Ulster Champion Nicky Lowry charging into second from the red grade. Newcomer Daryl McAleese got into all sorts of bother on the Brown Trout Bend bringing out a yellow flag, and with the field all closed up things really did kick off! There was another yellow for Elliott a lap later, before Lowry pounced to nudge the leader wide. Wright underlined how he is going to be a major player in the formula in 2018 as he came right back at his more experienced counterpart, landing a telling blow that took him back ahead and home to the chequers where he received a new race tyre courtesy of Ryan Wright Signs. Wright also smashed the lap record for the formula as Lowry took the runner up slot, with a huge battle for third falling to Peter Greer ahead of Willie Stewart after some huge hits late on.


23 Stock Rods took to the grid over the evening with two more unfortunately sidelined after practice, with amongst those on track there were class debuts for Dan Shannon, Paul Hosie and Philip Wilson alongside returns from Chris Hamill and Ben McCully. Sam Wilson was the leader for the opening half of heat one on a very busy raceway, before Curtis Greer rounded out a great drive from the blue grade by taking the win over Jonny Gillespie and McCully. Gillespie stamped his authority all over the second heat as he took the win ahead of McCully and Greer, after another race which saw battles right down the field.
The final turned out to be a cracker, with impressive novice Wilson again leading early on before Stuart Agnew found a way past. Stuart was under severe pressure as the laps ticked down, with Gillespie, Sam Wilson, Greer and McCully tight on his back panel. Even a late race caution period didn't unnerve Agnew and he took a morale boosting win ahead of Greer, Gillespie and Jonny Cardwell after another superb night of racing from the Stock Rods.

Amongst a pleasing field of 2.0 Hot Rods was Stuart Cochrane at the wheel of the former Wayne Woolsey championship winning Saxo, and he quickly showed some electric pace in his new mount. He had to make do with second in the opener as he just couldn't find a way past long time leader Aaron Beattie. Beattie again took the honours in heat two, this time holding off Adam Hylands and Stephen Emerson at the flag.
With Beattie upgraded after his two wins, it was local ace Thomas Morrison who set the pace in the feature race, but Hylands was soon on the chase with Cochrane in tow. An early skirmish had eliminated a number of cars, but Hylands powered past Morrison on the restart to take a fine win indeed, with Cochrane keeping him honest all the way home in second ahead of Adam Best and Emerson.

The Thunder Rods completed the line up with three very competitive races, with a debut for former National Hot Rod star Davy Gurney and an outing for Superstox favourite Sean Mark. Ryan Campbell hit the front in heat one before losing out to James Goldie, but the man to watch was Lee McCloy who swept past for the win ahead of Campbell and Andrew McLean. There was another close battle for the places in heat two, which fell the way of Goldie ahead of a great scrap which saw Jason Darragh get second over McCloy.
Aaron Darragh was the first to show in the final but Campbell quickly surged through to the lead. As Goldie and McCloy squabbled over second, Ryan pulled clear to land his second final win in succession with Goldie and McCloy filling the podium positions.

Packed grids, fantastic racing and a hint of controversy were all served up at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, sending the race fans home happy after a tremendous evening of high speed action. Portadown’s Lee Davison stormed home to win the opening round of the NIOvalTV Superstox Series while Dungannon’s Thomas Dilly was victorious in the opening round of the Classic Hot Rods NI Series. Glenavy’s Joe Largey was the winner in the ProStocks with Portadown ace Jordan Rochford taking an outstanding win in a fantastic Lightning Rods feature race. The final formula on show at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored meeting were the Rookie Bangers, and from a great showing of cars it was Cavan racer Eugene Cadden who stormed home to the victory.

World Champion Barry Stephen and fellow Scottish drivers David Frame and Chris Hay joined the local Superstox stars for the opening round if the NIOvalTV Series. They produced some exceptional racing with Hay leading most of the way in heat one until Gary Grattan bumpered his way past with three to go. Grattan then hit trouble with a puncture, leaving Kyle Beattie to shift Hay with the bumper on the last lap to take the win. Hay and Stephen Stewart rounded out the places. Heat two saw Birches star Lee Davsion dominate as he raced through from the Superstar grade to take the chequers ahead of Grattan and early leader Hay.
The final was arguably the race of the night, with the big names swapping blows right from the off. Under the floodlights it made for a terrific spectacle with Hay again leading right from the off. James Logan challenged him for the lead before Davison arrived on the scene, Lee sweeping past to a deserved feature race win ahead of Hay, with Frame nudging past Beattie on the final bend to take third. The night finished with a Dash for Cash kindly sponsored by Gary Chambers Transport and Chris Sharp Photography, which saw Scotsman Hay lead from flag to flag to record the victory.

Despite a few casualties during practice it was still fantastic to see 23 Lightning Rods take the start for the opening heat, which saw Dylan McCann stretch clear on a very packed raceway indeed. Battling trio Jonny McMillan, Aaron Brunton and Tim Hazlett demoted Dylan as the race progressed, taking the chequered flag in that order as McMillan held on for the win. Jonny looked set to repeat the feat in heat two, only for the challenging Hazlett to get under him heading to the final turn. As McMillan slammed the door shut he was spun out, sending cars in all directions as they took avoiding action. World Champion Aaron Stewart smacked the wall hard and lost a wheel, as Hazlett took the victory ahead of Ricky Shaw and European Champion Jordan Rochford.
The packed field set off for the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored feature race final, and it turned out to be a classic. McCann set the pace once again as James Litter and McMillan closed in, only for them to have their mirrors filled with the star graded trio of Rochford, Irish Champion Nigel Jackson and recently returned favourite Gordy McKee. Rochford took the bit firmly between his teeth and hit the wide outside line to drag himself right around the placemen to take a simply stunning victory. McKee, Mark McCambridge and Jackson filled out the places at the end of a great night for the formula which looks all set to be a huge attraction on the DMC Race Promotions circuits during the coming season.

The opening heat of the Classic Hot Rods provided one of the night’s big talking points, as the cars of Thomas Dilly and Joel Richardson locked together and speared off into the wall on turns one and two. It was an unfortunate racing incident caused when the minimal contact between the cars broke Dilly’s steering, and hopefully the damaged Richardson car can be repaired sooner rather than later. Anthony Morgan took the victory in that one as he held off Clive Richardson over the latter stages. Gary O’Neill slipped through to second behind Morgan at the flag when Clive hit trouble late on. Heat two saw Morgan again the winner, sweeping past early leader Adrian Boyle to lead home a repaired Dilly and O’Neill.
Unfortunately double heat winner Morgan was sidelined from the final with engine trouble, but Clive Richardson was back in action after rushing home to repair his Mk2 Escort. Boyle led from Richardson only for Clive to get a puncture, which opened the way for Dilly to power through and take the victory in style over O’Neill and Trevor Cusack.

There was plenty of action all around the raceway as the Rookie Bangers had their first outing of the season. 21 cars started the opener, with Paul O’Connor and Christy Bradley contesting the lead. On the exit of the final bend they went either side of a stricken car, with O’Connor just getting the verdict on the line ahead of Josh McKinstry and Dave Mooney. Talented teenager McKinstry then went one better in the second heat, taking the win over Stephen Murray and Killian Eager after another thrilling contest.
The final again saw the some excellent racing, with Eugene Cadden coming home to take the spoils ahead of James Goodman and Mooney at the end of another great outing from a formula that impresses more with each outing.

The opening round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series was on offer for the ProStocks, with David Browne making a return to racing after many, many years out of the hotseat. Another newcomer Paddy Hannigan led much of the way in the first heat, only to lose out late on to Joe Largey and William McFaul after plenty of exciting pushing and shoving in the final laps. Heat two saw a first victory for Sam Stewart as he led home McFaul and Largey to the line.
The closed grid final saw Largey and McFaul on the front row, and after some close opening exchanges Largey was able to edge clear to take the victory and the new race tyre courtesy of the sponsors. Dan Shannon, McFaul and Stephen Boyd completed the top places.
