Latest News
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.

Portadown driver Lee Davison was on top of the world at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, when he was roared home by the huge crowd to win the prestigious Superstox Championship of the World! After a tense championship race in front of a packed house, Lee held on to land one of oval racing’s oldest titles ahead of English duo Dan Roots and Mark Smith. The other major title of the weekend was contested on Sunday afternoon, when Portadown’s Adam Hylands took a sensational last gasp victory in the National Hot Rods British Championship. Adam nipped past long time leader Shane Bland on the final lap to take the win in an epic finish. Six formulas entertained across the Speedweekend, which was kindly sponsored by Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares, DRS Steelbuildings and Hoosier Racing Tyres. There was also a celebration of 50 years since the opening race meeting at Shamrock Park, with a great display of memorabilia and demonstrations by cars and drivers of the past.

The atmosphere within the Tullyroan bowl was at fever pitch as thirty three Superstox set off on the rolling laps ahead of the Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares World Final, a race with a pedigree dating right back to 1961. From pole position Lee Davison led them away, chased hard by Norfolk’s British Champion Jason Cooper. Cooper slipped ahead as the race twice went under caution, before he was unceremoniously dumped out of contention by a backmarking Jordan Aylward.
Davison surged back ahead, and was willed home by the huge local crowd who were sensing a home win! Lee completed the final laps to take the chequered flag and the World Championship title in some style, becoming Ulster’s first World winner in the formula since Ian McKnight way back in 1992. Lee celebrated with some fantastic pirouettes in front of a packed Annaghmore Bend, before being greeted by his friends and family amidst some highly emotional scenes. English duo Dan Roots and Mark Smith completed the podium, with Martyn Coles and Nick Roots next up.
Another home win came in the Allcomers heat as Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie drove a superb race to take the win over Martyn Coles, before the 50th Anniversary Final went to Coles after he nudged past Beattie late on.
Sunday’s Superstox action was for the Irish Open Championship, which saw Nick Roots take a lively opening heat before Davison continued his great weekend with victory in heat two. A fantastic opening few laps to the Irish Open final saw Davison ahead of Scotland’s David Frame, before Frame lost out and ended up against the wall. He rejoined and baulked the leader, allowing Cooper to spin Davison out of the premier position. Multi champion Cooper reeled off the laps to add another title to his collection, with Davison recovering for second ahead of Scottish based European Champion Stuart Gilchrist.

The DRS Steelbuildings National Hot Rods British Championship saw an opening heat win for Adam Hylands over Jaimie McCurdy, before European Champion Shane Bland from the Midlands powered home to take the second heat over Glenn Bell in a race blighted by a huge crash for Derek Martin. World and National Champion Billy Wood from Hampshire raced home to the third heat win over local ace Gary Woolsey, the latter having pulled off a great outside line pass on Mark Heatrick.
Hylands and Bland shared the front row for Sunday’s British Final, which was stopped early on for a huge back straight crash which saw a number of cars airborne and badly damaged. At the restart the track was slippery initially after a brief shower, which allowed Bland to get the drive on the outside line ahead of Hylands. Adam tracked Shane’s every move, before Bland pulled clear mid race when Glenn Bell and John Christie latched onto the back of Hylands for second. Hylands broke free again nearing the end, heaping pressure onto Bland as the laps dwindled down. As they took the last lap board Bland dramatically got wrong footed by a backmarker, leaving a gap which Hylands was into in a flash. Shane tried hard to close the door but Hylands was through to the British Championship win, with defending champion Christie and Bell completing the podium.
The 50th Anniversary Race saw a fine win for England’s Chris Crane, before the coveted Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy fell the way of Hylands as he signed off from his National Hot Rod career in fine style. Christie and Bland completed the podium in the event which also doubled as Round 3 of the Cele Services Four Nations Cup, and which saw veteran Norman Woolsey join the back of the grid as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations.

A great influx of visitors swelled the Classic Hot Rods ranks, with the opening heat of the Irish Open Championship on Saturday night seeing a fine win for England’s Gavin Taber ahead of Anthony Morgan and Gary Goodswen. Heat two saw local Annaghmore ace Clive Richardson take the win over Scotland’s Kenny Purdie, which then paired Taber and Richardson on the front row for the Irish Open Final.
At the green flag the front row duo sensationally tangled, taking both out of contention and allowing Goodswen through to the lead. As the laps counted down, Purdie arrived to fight for the lead, succeeding in pulling off an absolutely superb outside pass on Goodswen to land the title in empathic fashion. England’s Goodswen held on for second ahead of Scotland’s Jock Campbell, the latter having just held off a spirited Keith Chesher.
Sunday saw the Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy up for grabs, held in memory of Kenny Purdie’s father who tragically passed away at the corresponding meeting a year ago. Richardson took the opening heat win, passing Sussex driver Hughie Weaver on his way to the win. Heat two was on a wet track with most drivers struggling for grip on slick tyres. Ryan Polley had no such problems, taking a clear win over Gavin Taber and his father Adrian Taber.
From pole position Richardson rocketed away out front in the Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy, but all eyes were on a great battle for second between Gavin Taber, Craig Boyd and Purdie. Purdie was giving it his all to get a trophy in his father’s memorial race, and he produced an epic drive around the outside to not only pip Boyd but Taber too! Richardson meanwhile was well down the road and took a clear and decisive win.

Adam Hylands was doubling up between the National and 2.0 Hot Rods, and he took the win in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Masters heat with a clear win over Mark Madill and a returning Joel Richardson. Heat two saw Gary Wilson dominate in the wet conditions, finishing well clear of a battle for second between Hylands, Richardson and Adam Heatrick.
Hylands got the early break in the Masters final to lead Wilson in greasy conditions. Wilson found a way past Hylands to the lead, but attracted attention from Race Control for the manoeuvre. Hylands fought back past Richardson to challenge Wilson again, getting right alongside before slipping wide and glancing the wall. Wilson took the flag but was docked two places for contact on Hylands earlier in the race, which elevated Richardson to the title win. Hylands took second ahead of a demoted Wilson.

A huge field of Stock Rods on Saturday night, including visitors from Scotland and the Republic of Ireland, necessitated three heats to qualify for the 50th Anniversary Trophy. Heat one fell to Stephen McCready who held off Marc Morrell, before heat two saw an overdue victory for Johny Gillespie who has had some rotten luck of late. The third heat had more close and competitive action and went the way of Micky McFall who just held off Victor McAfee at the flag.
The 50th Anniversary Trophy race saw pole man McCready lose out early on to Greer, who surged ahead with the McMillan brothers, Derek and Shane, chasing hard behind. Derek moved aside to give Shane a go at catching the leader, and that he did as the laps counted down. Shane hauled himself alongside Greer but Curtis had all under control to take the win over Shane McMillan, his brother Derek and McFall.

Completing the Sunday afternoon action were the Lightning Rods, with former World Champion Aaron Stewart and James McKinney sharing the heat wins. The final saw McKinney lead again, only to lose out to a fast charging Adam McCann. McCann was driving a fantastic race, and he took his first ever final win ahead of a closing Jordan Rochford and Nigel Jackson.

London’s Ian Beaumont was the big winner at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening as the World Championship was crowned 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Champion after an action packed night’s racing. Another World Champion in victory lane was Ballymoney’s Steven Bolton who won the Unlimited National Bangers Nutshaker title, whilst the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series fell to Portadown’s European Champion Adam Hylands. Other feature race wins at the meeting, sponsored by Greers Volvo and Ray McGrath Transport, were Dan Shannon from a huge field of Stock Rods, and another World Champion, Gordy McKee, in the Lightning Rods.

Visitors from England and Scotland joined the locals for the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship, and as expected there was action aplenty throughout the evening. England’s Ben White hit the front in the opening heat, before losing out to fellow countryman Curtis Tebbenham who went on to take the victory over Ryan Stewart. Jonny Patterson took a huge knock on the home straight during that one, whilst it was Tebbenham who was involved in a huge crash in heat two. Local form man Robbie Wright stormed home in that one with his brother Davy and Stewart filling the places.
Stewart and Davy Wright occupied the front row for the Irish Open Final, with World Champion Ian Beaumont lining up ominously on row two alongside Scotland’s Andrew Mathieson. After the heavy opening exchanges it was Robbie Wright who hit the front before being turned aside by Beaumont who went ahead. Stewart and Mathieson were in close proximity but Beaumont just managed to edge clear to take a very polished victory indeed. Mathieson nipped past Stewart with one to go, but Ryan came back hard into the final bend to snatch back second spot with the Scotsman having to make do with third.

Adam Maxwell, World Champion Steven Bolton and local Points Champion Leonard Dunn disputed the early lead in the Unlimited National Bangers Nutshaker 2018 event, with a number of the others getting involved in some hard hitting action on the Tullyroan Bend. Bolton got the better of the others to take the win ahead of Dunn and Rodney Herron at the chequered flag. Maxwell then took the win in the Allcomers race despite Kieran McIvor’s best efforts to stop him, with Dunn and Bolton the placemen this time.
The Stephen Bannon Memorial Destruction Derby saw a huge wrecking train initiated by Jonny Murdock and Jake Neill. Willy Ogilby and the rest joined in too, with the last man in Dunn being declared the winner.

The 2.0 Hot Rods contested two more graded heats before the Grand Final of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series which has been running throughout the season. Brian Cherry led many of the opening laps of the first heat, before losing out to a flying Jason Devlin who was back in harness for the first time in a couple of months. Mark Madill and European Champion Adam Hylands chased him home. Allen Cherry raced to a clear win in the second heat ahead of Madill and British Champion Stuart Cochrane.
Aggregate points from across the series saw Hylands and Cochrane share the front row for the Hoosier Grand Final, with Hylands quickly edging out an advantage up front. Despite Cochrane’s best efforts, it was Hylands who took the series win with Stuart having to make do with second ahead of Allen Cherry. All three received new Hoosier tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

A fantastic 28 car turn out of Stock Rods included welcome Scottish visitor Stewart Patterson and season debuts for Stephen McCready, Rick Purdy, Del McLaughlin, William Taggart and Colin McNiece. On the very packed raceway trouble hit early in heat one as Sam Wilson was spun by Ryan Murphy which earned the latter a disqualification. A number of cars collected the spinning Wilson, and amongst them was a very unlucky Purdy who collected damage as did Mick Rodgers and Jonny Gillespie. At the resumption Samuel Montgomery held off a spirited Lee Wylie to take the win with Dan Shannon in third. Evan Monaghan led heat two early on, and it turned out to be a cracking race. Taggart went ahead with outside pass on Monaghan, only to hit trouble and retire. That handed the lead and the win to the returning Colin McNiece, who finished well clear of Montgomery and Monaghan as the star men had their work cut out on the busy circuit. It really was exceptional racing with 24 cars packed inside less than half a lap at one stage.
Johnny McCloy and then Del McLaughlin had turns out front in the final, before Shannon powered through to the lead. The current ProStocks British Champion is perhaps better than his current yellow grading in a Stock Rod suggests, and he simply pulled further and further clear out front. McNiece drove a great race to second, with another great drive from star grader Shane McMillan netted him third ahead of Micky McFall and McCready. It was an excellent night of Stock Rod racing which bodes very well for the future, with the class really booming at present.

Before the opening Lightning Rods heat Portadown’s Jordan Rochford paraded the European Championship trophy which he had won the previous weekend at Hednesford in England. On a track made difficult by a brief shower, Rochford then drove a superb race to take the first win of the night having started last car on the grid. Irish Champion Nigel Jackson took second ahead of long time leader James McKinney. Recent newcomer McKinney underlined his potential with a great victory in heat two, leading all the way to take his first ever win ahead of Dylan and Adam McCann.
Ronan McNally led the way for over half distance in the final, with McKinney challenging initially before he was spun aside which would later earn Dylan McCann a disqualification. The man on a real charge though was World Champion Gordy McKee, who powered past McNally to take up the running. Sensationally though Gordy hit trouble with just one lap to go! Anyone who thought he was showboating by slowing down around the final lap quickly realised he was in big trouble as plumes of smoke came from his car, but he was just about able to coast over the line to take the silverware with a blown engine. Rochford and Jackson completed the top three.
