English driver Ryan Jordan drove a storming race at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon to take a sensational Irish Open Championship win in the 1300 Stock Cars. The Aldershot driver pounced in the closing stages to take a great victory, whilst local Portadown ace Wayne Woolsey continued his great recent form with a win in the second round of the Hoosier Challenge Series for 2.0 Hot Rods .
Donemana’s Leonard Dunn took victory in the Unlimited National Bangers King of Krash whilst other feature race wins fell to Scotland’s Maia Thompson in the Junior Productions, Kildare’s Tommy Graham in the Classic Hot Rods and Irish Champion Steven Haugh from the Birches in the Superstox.

A number of mainland visitors joined the local 1300 Stock Cars for the Irish Open Championship, with the opening heat falling to Josh McKinstry ahead of England’s Jacob Bromley. Heat two saw a dominant win for Ivan Elliott, the defending Irish Open Champion coming home ahead of Jack Kearney and England’s Joe Giles.
The final turned out to be one of the races of the season, with the bumpers and the lead exchanged on numerous occasions. Gareth Halliday looked good out front early on, even surviving a mid race debris caution to hang onto the lead. The action was relentless throughout the field, with Robbie Wright edging ahead before he too was bundled out of contention. Bromley then hit the front only for Elliott to come back to the lead, having looked totally out of it at one stage!
It boiled down to a last lap shoot out between Elliott, Bromley and Ryan Jordan, with Ryan timing his attack on Elliott to perfection to claim the win, just holding off Bromley on the run to the line in the closest of finishes. Joe Giles and Curtis Tebbenham were next home for an all English top four, with Jonathan Brown and Elliott fifth and sixth respectively.

Vince Litter set the early pace in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, before losing out to a fast charging Michael Woods who went on to win over Drew McKeown and Scott Cochrane. Recently crowned British Champion Wayne Woolsey then took the second heat with a commanding drive over Woods, before repeating the feat with ease in the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series Round 2 Final with another outstanding drive to earn himself the trophy and a new race tyre. Ryan McCrory impressed on his way to second, ahead of Adam Heatrick and Woods.

An excellent grid of Superstox produced great racing all day, with the opener falling to Jamie McCann after a late race challenge on Lee Davison. Troy Crawford underlined his excellent recent improvement by leading the second heat for some distance, but he just couldn’t hold off Jordan Robinson as he raced past to take the win.
The final saw Davison setting the pace, before an in-form Steven Haugh bumpered his way past, with the Irish Champion going on to take a great win. Craig McConnell and McCann completed the top three.

The opening Junior Productions heat saw a win for Dylan Fegan after he relegated early leader Casey Cherry. The second heat saw a welcome win for Matthew Weir, as he held off Leyton Hughes and Jake Devlin at the flag.
The final saw Maia Thompson slip under Cherry early on to take up the running, and despite pressure from behind, and the star names looming in her mirrors, she held on all the way home to take her first ever race win. Maia even survived a late race caution period which made the win even more impressive, with Callum Doak taking second after he had a tremendous finish powering around the wide outside line. Weir, Cherry and Fegan were next home.

Six Classic Hot Rods arrived to do battle, although we did lose Thomas Dilly to a blown engine in practice. The drivers raced superbly all afternoon, with the Mk2 Escort’s and Anglia’s a sight to behold. Anthony Morgan took the opening heat win after relegating leader Mark Monaghan, before popular veteran Tommy Graham took the second heat by holding off the challenging Morgan. The final again boiled down to a battle between Morgan and Graham, with Tommy once again coming out on top after an impressive drive in the wet conditions.

A smaller than normal field of Unlimited National Bangers saw Leonard Dunn spun out of the early lead in the King of Krash race by Deano McGrath, only for Leonard to fight back in style by catching and spinning Deano out to take the win.
Leonard then also took the first Allcomers race win too, before Stevo McGrath then took victory in the second Allcomers and the DD.

Despite some horrendous conditions over the weekend, drivers from right across the British Isles served up some superb racing during the annual Summer Speedweekend at Aghadowey Oval. The main event was the Lightning Rods Championship of the World, with Portadown's Nigel Jackson taking a record breaking fourth title win. The British Championship for 2.0 Hot Rods saw another Portadown driver triumph, as Wayne Woolsey raced to victory. The other major title event of the weekend was the Ninja Karts British Championship, with young Suffolk visitor Max Taylor racing to a tremendous victory.

A great entry of Lightning Rods took to the track in sodden conditions for the first of three qualifying heats for the World Championship. Glenavy’s Mark McCambridge took the win with European Champion Nigel Jackson looking ominous as he grabbed second with a great outside line run. Heat two fell the way of English visitor Ashley Birkin, with Jackson again in second spot.
Heat Three saw Irish Champion Stuart Agnew in victory lane with a win, with British Champ Dean Catherwood and Ross Houston getting the best of a big places scrap in second and third.
Conditions were at their worst for the Cherry Pipes sponsored World Championship, with Jackson hitting the front from pole position early on. Throughout the 40 laps Nigel was just revelling in his favoured wet conditions, and he took the chequered flag to record his fourth World title win and on a fourth different circuit too. It also marked the first World title win for a BMW in the formula. Another great fight for second in the pouring rain fell to Catherwood ahead of Birkin and another English driver, Max Goodier.

In the contrasting sunny conditions on Sunday, Jackson was again on top form as he won the NI Open Championship, ahead of Agnew and Catherwood, following another dominant drive.

The opening British Championship qualifier for the 2.0 Hot Rods saw a remarkable drive from Scotland’s Jason Secker, as he sped through from mid grid to take a fine win ahead of fellow countryman Keith Brown. The second heat again saw Secker catching the eye, as he made it two from two to lay down a marker to the rest in the wet conditions. The final heat saw a popular win for East Anglia’s Damian Wright as he held off Cork’s Ian Riordan to take the chequered flag.

The British Championship final was contested on Sunday afternoon, and consistency across the three heats saw Wayne Woolsey on pole position, with Secker alongside at the head of the grid. Despite Secker’s best efforts in the now dry conditions, Woolsey was able to edge clear and build an advantage he wouldn’t lose. The Portadown driver raced home to a decisive win, taking the second British title of his career having last won it in 2008.

The reversed grid British Revenge race saw a morale boosting win for Broughshane’s Adam Weir, before Riordan took the NI Open Championship trophy ahead of Drew McKeown and Ryan McCrory.


Well over 30 Ninja Karts from England, Scotland and Northern Ireland converged on Aghadowey to contest their British Championship. Ahoghill’s Lewis Hazlett took the opening heat ahead of Cullybackey’s Keegan Turtle, before Heat Two fell the way of another local driver, Rowdy Grattan from Portadown. World Champion Mason Carberry from England was second, in a race that will long be remembered for a huge acrobatic crash for National and English Champion Charlie Weston.
Astonishingly Charlie was back on track for the final heat, which fell to Essex lad William Hunn who just held off Scotland’s Stuart Shevill and Max Taylor from Ipswich at the chequered flag.

The British Championship race saw huge spray on the very wet track, with all the young 6-11 year old stars coping admirably. There was a super battle up front throughout, with Taylor taking the biggest win of his career to date as he was crowned British Champion. Shevill and Hunn completed the podium places ahead of Jack Jones.

On Sunday the Irish Open Championship was up for grabs, with three keenly fought heats falling to Jack Morrison, Jaxon York and Taylor. The Irish Open Final was another nail-biting encounter with Taylor taking his second big win of the weekend ahead of Jones and Shevill.

The elite formula of the local racing scene, the National Hot Rods contested the opening round of Diemens.com World Series NI. Amongst the entry was Dungannon's new World Champion Derek Martin, as the road to Ipswich 2024 began in great fashion with a 19-car entry. John Christie claimed the opening heat win ahead of Jeff Riordan, before veteran Andy Stewart drove a superb defensive race in heat two to hold off the pack in the closest of finishes.
The final was all about Christie once again, as he completed his double for the afternoon was a dominant display to win over Carl Sloan and Glenn Bell.

There was some great support racing over the weekend, with Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer taking a heat and final double in the Superstox as he revelled in the wet, whilst the other heat fell to recent returnee to the sport Davy Clarke.

The Stock Rods were also in action in Saturday’s awful weather, and it was Mark Foster from Armagh who grabbed the silverware after the heats had been shared by Dan Shannon and Stevie McNiece.

The Junior Productions fielded a great grid of cars on Sunday afternoon, headed by the new British Champion Joshua Murray. Casey Cherry and Lauren Berry were the heat winners, before Alfie Litter had the drive of his career so far to win the final for his first ever race victory. Matthew Weir and Robbie Dallas completed the podium places.

Diemen’s is proud to announce its title sponsorship of the Diemens.com World Series NI for National Hot Rods, in what is the most lucrative deal the series has seen to date.

The new sponsorship package is worth up to £4,000 for the World Series NI drivers and there will also be promotional offers for race fans throughout the campaign!

Diemens.com has been established to sell Australia’s award-winning hot sauces in the UK and NI, and aims to promote these awesome products though motorsports sponsorship. In recent times the Diemen’s branding could be seen on the National Hot Rod of local driver Dean McCrory, and now the company have taken the step up to become the new title sponsor of the ultra-competitive World Series NI.

Diemen’s will provide fantastic prizes to the winner of each of the 14 rounds of the series, with additional prizes to the top three finishers in the World Series NI standings at the end of the campaign.

The man behind the Diemen’s brand in the UK and NI is Bertie McCrory, himself a former Ulster Hot Rod racer in the 1980’s, and he is very enthusiastic about the deal, “World Series NI is a fantastic way of advertising our products and we are very pleased to come on board as the title sponsor. Hot Sauces for Hot Rods, and with the World Champion in the ranks it’s great to be associated with the very best in the sport.”

Darren Black from DMC Race Promotions was equally thrilled by the new deal, “We are proud to welcome Diemen’s Hot Sauces on board as the new title sponsor for National Hot Rods World Series NI.

We would also like to place on record our thanks to the outgoing sponsors, Simpson Race Exhausts, for their invaluable contribution over the past seasons.”

The 2023/24 Diemens.com World Series NI blasts into action this Sunday, July 23rd, at Aghadowey Oval (1pm start), with new World Champion Derek Martin set to receive a hero’s welcome home as he proudly displays the gold roof for the first time.

An action packed race meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening somehow managed to stay dry throughout, with Cullybackey’s Marc Morrell being crowned Rookie Bangers Ulster Champion. There was a perfect hat-trick of victories in the Superstox for Bangor’s Craig McConnell, with Ballymena racer Adam Graham winning the Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
The other final wins went to Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars and Glenavy’s Callum Magill in the Stock Rods.

Two action-packed qualifying heats kicked off proceedings for the Rookie Bangers, with lively action and spills all around the raceway. Limavady’s Josh Goligher triumphed in both with two great drives, the first ahead of Marc Morrell and Stephen Boyd. The second heat saw Josh ahead but suffering from a puncture late on, and as he tried to nurse the car home he, along with Gavin Gamble and William McFaul all came spinning to the line whilst pointing in all sorts of directions! Goligher got the nod by a hair’s breadth over Gamble and Boyd.
The Ulster Championship final saw Goligher edge clear early on, until he was baulked and taken to the infield by a backmarker. Josh sped across the infield to rejoin still ahead, but that attracted a warning from Race Control. He held on to take the chequered flag, but as he was deemed to have rejoined the race illegally he was demoted out of the podium places by the Stewards. That elevated a delighted Morrell to the championship win ahead of David Gurney and Boyd.

The second round of the Spedeworth TV/NIOvalTV Series for Superstox saw Troy Crawford lead for much of the distance in heat one, before NI Points Champion Craig McConnell muscled his way past on the final lap to grab the win. Heat two saw Crawford again out front before he was relegated by Paddy Murphy. Curtis Greer then hit the front before McConnell again nudged his way through to the victory over Steven Haugh.
The final saw Gerard Hartley build up quite an advantage out front, before that man McConnell came calling once again. Craig burst ahead to complete his faultless treble for the evening over Jamie McCann, Greer and Haugh.

The budget Thunder Rods division served up some great racing throughout the meeting, with Matthew Nicholl pulling off a superb outside line pass on James Goldie to win the opening heat in some style. Heat two saw yet another outside line surge from Davey Wilson as he took the flag over Adam McKinney.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup saw Nicholl set the early pace before Adam Graham found a gap down the inside on the back straight. He quickly made the lead his own, and held on for the win despite the close efforts of runner up Goldie, with Nicholl taking third place.

A trio of very welcome Tipperary Raceway visitors boosted the Stock Rods grid, and it was one of them, Eogan Burke, who took the opening heat win over a fast charging Mark Foster and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Heat two saw a fantastic drive from European, British and National Champion Mark Crawford, as he powered around the outside of Joe Largey on the final lap to take a sensational last gasp win on the line by inches.
Burke lead for much of the final but had Declan O’Connor chasing hard throughout. With five laps to go O’Connor launched his bid for the lead, but only succeeded in bundling Burke wide. Declan took the lead but the move would cost him dear after the race. He was unfortunately demoted two places to third for the contact by the Stewards, handing the win to Callum Magill ahead of Crawford.

Plenty of hard racing and contact was the order of the day in the 1300 Stock Cars, with veteran campaigner Tommy McCrory rolling back the years to win the opener ahead of Fionn Donnelly and Ty Richardson. Heat two was all about Alan Milliken, the novice grader taking a great win over his son Matthew with Donnelly in third.
It was a family affair in the feature race final too, with Alan Milliken leading and Matthew moving through into second place with just a couple of laps remaining. Would he let his Dad take the glory? Not a chance said Matthew, as he went in with the bumper to move his Dad wide and race past to take the trophy in a family one-two finish. Ivan Elliott and Jonathan Brown were next home in another great race from the 1300’s.
