Second Shamwreck Title For Flaherty!
Mike Flaherty won his second National Bangers Shamwreck title at a sun drenched Aghadowey Oval on Sunday, taking the flag after a dramatic title race. There was some excellent racing on show all afternoon, with Allan Leonard the other big National Banger winner as he took the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby. Other feature race winners at the Cherry Pipes sponsored meeting were Lee Davison (Superstox), Norman Purdy (Thunder Rods), Joe Largey (ProStocks) and John Stewart (Reliant Robins).

Mark Dalgarno from Scotland set the early pace in the heat race for the Unlimited National Bangers, leading Stevo McGrath and Leonard Dunn in the opening stages. It was an excellent race, as McGrath and Dunn went ahead until they encountered Dan Dooner’s Hearse on the back straight. In an instant McGrath was out and Dunn was turned around too, opening the door for Jonny Murdock to power through to take first blood for Team Buckle ahead of Mike Flaherty and Jason Burke. World Champion Steven Bolton was handily placed until a blown engine ended his day.
The Shamwreck final was next up, which put the top heat finishers at the front of the grid. As Murdock went ahead, there was some huge action on turn one which brought out the reds with Scotland’s Scott Patterson in trouble. Murdock resumed the lead again ahead of Flaherty, and as we reached five laps to go Jonny came upon the backmarking Danny Flaherty. As he went to dive inside him, Murdock clipped the rear of Danny’s car and was sent into a huge rollover on the pit bend. The race was stopped, with Jonny emerging unhurt from the wreckage to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for his efforts. Mike Flaherty reeled off the remaining laps to take his second Shamwreck title in some style, with Scotland’s Colin Riddell a close second ahead of Dwayne Lynch.
The Allcomers race saw a easy win for Stevo McGrath, and he also had time for a huge hit on Danny Flaherty’s machine too. The meeting ended with the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby which saw some enormous hits handed out. There was a huge jacking train on turn two, and through the carnage Allan Leonard emerged to take another win for the Last Rites team.
Steven Bolton took the Best Presented Car Award for his Ford Scorpio, Rodney Herron’s Volvo was judged Best Wreck and Murdock took a well deserved Entertainer of the Day award.

The Superstox played a great supporting role, with a very dominant Lee Davison going through the card unbeaten. David Beattie set the early heat one pace before Portadown flier Davison powered through to the win over Sean Mark and Stephen Stewart. Heat two saw a number of caution periods, the first for Aaron McNeilly stranded on turn four and then when James Turkington took a heavy knock on the Brown Trout Bend. Sean Mark hit the front but had no answer to the flying RCE engineered machine of Davison. Lee took his second win of the day over Mark and Stewart once again.
D Beattie again led the way for a number of laps in the final, with Stewart chasing before he was forced to give way to Davison. Lee surged ahead to the lead and the win on lap thirteen, coming home ahead of Stewart and Mark as fourth placed finisher Kyle Beattie was unfortunately removed from the results after a minor technical infringement. Davison received his trophy from PDC Darts superstar Daryl Gurney who was enjoying the racing action for the day.

It was excellent to see a number of new drivers amongst a good entry in the Thunder Rods, as David King led the opening laps of the first heat. Jason Darragh went ahead on half distance and just held off Davy Gurney for the win, with James Goldie in third. King again led heat two before losing out to newcomer Graham Loughlin, with Norman Purdy then moving ahead to take the flag. He was adjudged to have made illegal contact during the race though and was penalised two places in the final analysis, handing the win to Goldie over Loughlin.
After his heat two penalty Purdy hit back in style in the Cherry Pipers sponsored final, catching the squabbling lead duo of King and Gavin Gamble. Gamble assumed the top position before Purdy executed a superb outside line pass to take a fantastic win. Gurney and Samuel Montgomery rounded out the top three ahead of Andrew McLean and Darragh.

A huge battle raged between the star graded ProStocks all afternoon, with no quarter given and certainly none expected! Sam Stewart set the pace in heat one, but it was Irish Champion Dan Shannon who charged through to the win over Steven Haugh and British Champion Adam White. Heat two exploded into life when Shannon got fenced hard on the Brown Trout Bend, losing a wheel in the process. Haugh assumed the lead as hostilities resumed, but White came from miles back on the last bend to land a telling blow which knocked Haugh wide and gave him a truly fantastic win. Haugh and Stephen Boyd filled the places after Stewart was removed from the results for a differential irregularity by the scrutineers.
David Browne’s early final lead was wiped out by a yellow flag for a loose spring on turn four. There had been plenty of swapping of paint and places between the top runners, but Joe Largey stamped his authority on proceedings to take the win over Haugh and a repaired Shannon.

The three wheeler Reliant Robins were contesting their King of Aghadowey title, with Ian Bolton taking the opening heat over John Stewart and Neil Martin. Martin went for a half roll in heat two as he wrestled for the lead with Gareth Bevan, opening the door for Stewart to take the victory over Bolton. The final saw Haley Bevan set the pace for half the distance, when despite a spirited defence she had to give best to Martin. Stewart then surged past both to take the win over Martin and H Bevan.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Cherry Pipes Ltd
