Latest News
Constant drizzle during the meeting didn’t deter the drivers from providing some excellent racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening. The headline event was the Irish Teams Championship for the Rookie Bangers which fell the way of Dublin based Team Sour A after three consistent points scoring races, with their Team Sour B ace Matthew McKinstry taking a heat and final double. Lurgan’s Graham Meek was victorious in the King of Aghadowey for the Junior Productions, whilst the same title went the way of Coleraine’s Adam White in the ProStocks. Other final wins at the JP Joinery and Building Contractor sponsored meeting fell the way of Conor Hughes from Antrim in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Banbridge driver Jonny Teggart in the Thunder Rods.

An excellent field of Rookie Bangers took to the circuit for their first ever Irish Teams Championship, with action all around the slippery raceway from the first green flag. Matthew McKinstry quickly hit the front in the opener to race clear for a fine win over Paul O’Connor and Ger O’Beirne. There were spinners and crunches galore, with a repeat in the second heat which saw Conor Finegan from Batman Spinners A take the victory. There were a couple of stoppages in this one, the first for a huge crash between Jack Murray and O’Connor, and another for a loose wheel on the circuit. Josh McKinstry came through for second ahead of Eugene Cadden.
There was trouble for Josh McKinstry at the start of the final as he had a huge coming together with the wall, before early leader Cadden lost a wheel to bring about a second stoppage. At the resumption Matthew McKinstry stamped his authority all over the race, racing clear and lapping the whole field on his way to a dominant victory over O’Beirne and David Mooney. Once the points had been calculated Team Sour A of O’Connor, Deano McGrath and O’Beirne were crowned Irish Teams Champions ahead of Batman Spinners A and Team Chancers.

The young aces of the Junior Productions were contesting the King of Aghadowey title, with the opening heat seeing a clear win for Graham Meek. A huge battle for second ended in tears, with Drew McKeown in the wall and Adam McFall excluded for his part in the mess. Sam McNiece and Callum Magill completed the top three. McFall bounced back in some style to win the second heat ahead of Matthew Nicholl and James Stewart.
In the final Meek led Nicholl early on, with McFall driving a great race from down the grid to eventually arrive on the tail of leader Meek. Adam tried every trick in the book to get past, but when he did he caught the eye of the Stewards as he made contact with Meek in doing so. McFall took the chequered flag but was docked two places for his misdemeanour, handing the King of Aghadowey crown to a delighted Meek. Nicholl inherited second ahead of the demoted McFall with Magill and Aaron Ward next up.

Once again the Thunder Rods produced a very healthy field, with newcomer Jonny Teggart leading them away from the novice grade. A mid race caution period wiped out his early lead, but he held on to take the win on his debut despite the efforts of placemen Joshua McMullan and Johnny Pollock. Teggart again led heat two early on, but he lost out with five laps to go to meeting sponsor Pollock, who went on to record a very pleasing win over Lee McCloy and Davy Gurney.
The final saw Teggart break free out front, this time with McMullan chasing hard as a huge battle developed for third. McMullan challenged Teggart hard late on for the win, getting alongside and just losing out by a matter of inches on the run to the flag. Teggart was great value for his heat and final double which earns him a rise in grade for the next meeting, with David Wilson driving a creditable race on the outside line to snatch third behind McMullan, with Pollock in fourth.

Thomas Morrison led the opening exchanges of the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat before losing out to long distance traveller Pat Casey, but it was British Champion Stuart Cochrane who smartly found the outside groove to race past to the victory. Ryan McClure and Conor Hughes filled the top three after Gary Wilson was docked from second for contact. Brian Cherry led heat two until half distance, before Wilson found a way past to record the win in some style ahead of Cochrane and McClure.
Cherry and Casey disputed the lead in the final, before Casey edged clear with Conor Hughes chasing hard. Grip was at a premium as the drivers scrabbled for grip on the wet surface, with Hughes notably getting very sideways on a number of occasions as he looked for a way past the leader. The former BriSCA F2 superstar eventually hit the front, and pulled clear to record his first feature race win in the 2.0 Hot Rods after a fine drive. Casey was great value as he held on for second ahead of Wilson and Cochrane.

Coleraine’s Adam White went through the programme unbeaten as he raced to both heats and the King of Aghadowey final win in the ProStocks. In the opener it took a last bend hit on long time leader Dylan Booth for Adam to hit the front, whilst heat two was a much less complicated affair for White as he led home British and Irish Champion Dan Shannon.
The closed grid final brought the others right onto White’s tail from the first green flag, but the former British Champion was on fine form as he edged clear once again to land the King of Aghadowey title ahead of Steven Haugh and Shannon.

Portadown’s Gary Woolsey was the toast of Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night when he scooped the honours in Round 4 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods. On an evening when the perfect conditions led to some fast, thrilling racing, fellow Portadown ace Jordan Rochford took victory in the Grand Final of the Lightning Rods 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, and Glenavy’s Dan Shannon stormed home to win the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series for ProStocks. The other feature race wins at the McElmeel Mobility Group meeting fell to Stephen Stewart in the Superstox and young Max Hobson who completed a hat-trick to win the Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup.

Seventeen National Hot Rods came to grid for the fourth round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with the locals joined by English Series regular Bradley Dynes who was making a welcome trip back to his old stomping ground. Kenny McCann and Andrew Stewart disputed the early heat one lead, before losing out to Podge McQuaid. He though had no answer to the flying Shane Murray who stormed past to take the win over Carl Sloan and Keith Martin. Stewart went out front in heat two, with Simon Kennedy this time chasing hard in second. Gary Woolsey was making strides towards the front, relegating Kennedy to go second and bearing down on Stewart as the laps dwindled down. Stewart held on though for the win, with Woolsey and Kennedy completing the top three.
Murray had annexed pole position for the final, and quickly settled in to the lead ahead of Woolsey and Ulster Champion Glenn Bell. However only five laps in Murray ground to a halt on the Annaghmore Bend with mechanical issues, gifting the lead to Woolsey. Gary spent the rest of the race under pressure from Bell, but he was equal to it all and took the chequered flag to record a satisfying win. Bell, Derek Martin and Sloan were next home ahead of NI Champion Adam Hylands after what was a very fraught race in the midst of the pack.

The Lightning Rods contested two more qualifying heats before the Grand Final of the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, with last week’s final winner Dermot Tynan the first to show in the opening heat before losing out to Dylan McCann. The whole pack closed together as they headed into the final laps, with Martin O’Flaherty looking around the outside of the leader and Stephen Hollywood trying to get inside him at the same time! Hollywood and McCann tripped over each other which opened the way for O’Flaherty to claim the win, his first since rejoining the formula only a few weeks ago having been working abroad for some time. Tim Hazlett and Ricky Shaw completed the top three. Tynan again led for much of the second heat, with Vince Litter this time chasing him hard as they raced towards the chequered flag. Litter got a superb run on the outside line on the final lap, just pipping Tynan by the closest of margins to take the win, with Jordan Rochford in third.
The 2ke Engineering Challenge Series Grand Final was lined up on aggregate points from across the series, which handed Rochford pole position ahead of Mark Corry and Shaw. Rochford quickly stamped his authority on proceedings and pulled clear, as a huge scrap developed for second between Corry, Hazlett and Shaw. Corry was fighting a great rearguard action to keep the rest at bay, and even attracted attention from Race Control to tidy his racing line. Shaw took the bull by the horns and went for a great outside run over the final two laps, just failing to grab second by the slenderest of margins. Rochford meanwhile was well down the road, claiming an utterly dominant series win by some distance after a sublime performance. He took the trophy and two race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors, with Corry and Shaw completing the podium.

Welcome Scottish visitor Chris Hay joined the healthy grid of local Superstox for the second round of the NIOvalTV Series, and their final outing before the World Championship is staged at Tullyroan later in the month. Paddy Murphy set the pace from the white grade in the opening heat, leading until well after half distance when Portadown’s Stephen Stewart zipped past to take the victory
over Cyril Hawe and Keith McAreavey. Murphy and fellow white grader Brian Lammey held sway out front for some time in the second heat, before this time star man Lee Davison hit the front late on. Lee even survived a late race caution to take the win over Stewart and Kyle Beattie.
McAreavey led the feature final for some distance, with Stewart and Davison closing in late on to set up a grandstand finish. Davison hit trouble and retired with just five laps to go, leaving the way clear for Stewart to hit the front and take a decisive victory and earn himself a rise to the red grade for the next meeting. McAreavey was great value in second ahead of Sean Mark in third.

The ProStocks were contesting the Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series, and Bushmills man Dylan Booth took the flag in the opener before being excluded in post race scrutineering for a minor technical infringement. That handed the win to British Champion Dan Shannon over Norman Purdy, before Booth righted his wrong by taking victory in heat two. This time there were no drama at the post race checks, and he held onto the win ahead of Purdy and Steven Haugh.
Joe Largey and Shannon shared the front row for the final courtesy of the aggregate series points scoring, with Largey breaking clear early on before being reeled in by Shannon and Haugh. They both quickly found a way past before Largey spun out of contention. Shannon held on to record yet another title win and with it two new tyres from the series sponsors, with Haugh a gallant runner up. William McFaul claimed third after being caught up in a last lap melee that saw Mark McLaughlin and Purdy lose out.

The Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup was dominated by young Portadown starlet Max Hobson as he claimed victory in both heats and the final. Leyton Hughes and Lexi Crooks contested the lead in the opening heat, before Hobson arrived from the red grade to slip around the outside to take the win over Hughes and Crooks. Lauren Berry was chasing hard after Hughes and Crooks in heat two, but neither of the three had an answer to Hobson’s pace as he again roared by to take the win over Berry and Lacey Bevan.
From pole position Hobson was never challenged in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, that despite losing the lead off the line to Berry. As Hobson made the race his own with a dominant performance Bevan made a great outside pass on Berry nearing the end to take a very creditable second spot, with Lauren completing the podium in third.

The coveted Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy was the highlight of Saturday evening’s race meeting at Tullyroan Oval, and it was Portadown’s Adam Hylands who landed the silverware after an excellent performance in the 2.0 Hot Rods. There was some thrilling action from the 1300 Stock Cars as they contested the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series which fell the way of Birches star Robbie Wright. Ballymoney’s Lee McCloy won the special challenge event between the Thunder Rods and Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods, whilst the other feature race wins at the Cherry Pipes sponsored meeting fell to Dermot Tynan in the Lightning Rods and James Stewart in the Junior Productions.

Brian Cherry set the early pace in the opening heat for 2.0 Hot Rods ahead of the returning Mark Madill, but it was Allen Cherry who was the man on a mission. He quickly roared past to the lead and the win, tracked all the way home by Adam Hylands. Heat two was all about Ryan McClure, as he raced clear to take the win over defending champion Glenn Bell and Hylands.
Hylands and Bell were tied on points, with the toss of a coin giving Hylands pole spot for the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy Final. Bell hung on gamely for the opening few laps on the outside, but he had no answer to Hylands superb pace. The Portadown man drew clear to take the win and the fantastic trophy, with Bell and McClure the placemen.

The 1300 Stock Cars produced some outstanding action as they contested the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Jamie McCann and Robbie Wright contested the heat one lead into the final bend, their ensuing dust up only allowing Jon McQuillan to sneak through for the victory. Unfortunately Jon was later loaded up from the whole meeting for a technical infringement, meaning the win went to Wright over McCann. Ryan Stewart was the man who led the final stages of the second heat, before Wright went in hard into the final bend to take a great win.
Aggregate points from across the series lined up the final grid, with Wright on pole position. He was shifted wide by McCann early on before Peter Greer and Michael Logan also got involved as the bumpers flew in and the sparks were flying! Greer, Ryan Stewart and Logan all ended up hard in the wall as the action continued, with Robbie Wright coming home for the win after a fine recovery drive. His brother Davy Wright took second and Josh McKinstry third, with all three winning tyres courtesy of the series sponsor Ryan Wright Signs. After the superb final Ryan very kindly put up a cash prize for an extra Dash for Cash race at the end of the programme, which fell to Jamie McCann after another action packed outing.

The Thunder Rods were joined by a number of welcome travellers from Tipperary Raceway’s Premier Rods formula for a special challenge meeting. There was a great array of machinery on display, with David Gurney from Londonderry taking the first heat after holding off a strong Premier Rod challenge early on. Lee McCloy and James Goldie came through for second and third at the chequered flag. The second heat saw a morale boosting win for David Baird, with Gavin Gamble and Goldie next up.
The final saw McCloy and Goldie on the front row, with the duo setting off in that order out front. Goldie looked but wouldn’t commit to the outside pass, with Andrew McLean keeping a watching brief behind. It was becoming a really intriguing event, with nothing between the top cars and a large band of backmarkers looming ahead as they entered the final stages. The crowd were kept on their toes right to the end, with McCloy just getting the verdict ahead of Goldie, with a fantastic charge around the outside netting David Wilson third on the line. Joe Fitzgerald received a trophy as the top Premier Rods finisher.

An excellent field of Lightning Rods saw a debut for James McKinney amongst the 21 car grid, and they produced some superb racing all evening. Dermot Tynan set the early pace in heat one but lost out mid race to a flying European Champion Jordan Rochford, who went on to win despite a late race caution period, with Dylan McCann and Scott Cochrane next home. Heat two saw a big turn three crash for Mark Corry and Scott Cochrane, as Irish Champion Nigel Jackson took the win ahead of Rochford and World Champion Gordy McKee.
Novice graders Tynan and McKinney set an excellent pace at the start of the final, with Tynan especially looking very good indeed. Rochford was again making great strides towards the front, and once he got to third was still almost half a lap in arrears. He quickly got the hammer down and reduced the deficit, slipping past McKinney to go second. With backmarkers between them Tynan was just able to hang on to record a fantastic final victory after a great drive, with Rochford excellent value in second and McKee and Jackson next home.

Aaron Ward drove superbly to win the opening Junior Productions heat, heading home Sam Percy and James Stewart with a great dice in the pack between Adam Weir, Adam McFall and Graham Meek. Stewart took a clear heat two victory over Matthew Nicholl and Sam McNeice, before James repeated the feat in the final to take a great win and earn a rise to the blue grade for the next meeting. Ward and Irish Champion Drew McKeown were next home after another positive night from the stars of tomorrow.
