Martin Hangs On For National Hot Rod Victory
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.
