Shane Leads McMillan 1-2 In William Cooke Memorial Trophy
A fantastic Bank Holiday afternoon of racing at Aghadowey Oval on May Day Monday saw five formulas in action in front of a healthy crowd of fans. Kells based British Champion Shane McMillan took the main prize on offer on the day, the William Cooke Memorial Trophy for Stock Rods, whilst Portadown’s Jordan Rochford took the honours in a controversial Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey. Other winners at the Ross Hyndman Motors of Londonderry sponsored event were Portadown’s Jordan Robinson in the Superstox and Limavady’s Gareth McCrory in the Thunder Rods, whilst local favourite Ian Bolton was victorious in the thrilling Back to Basics Bangers.

There was another excellent turnout of 30 Stock Rods on show for the coveted William Cooke Memorial Trophy, in memory of the expert engine builder and driver from Kilrea. Scotland’s Chris Lattka was a welcome addition to the field, and he was a close runner up in the first heat of the day behind winner Stevie McNiece. The DMC Driver of the Month for April, Jonny Cardwell, had led early on before losing out to the lead dup and Niall McFerran too. Heat two saw a clear win for Shane McMillan over his brother Derek, with Micky McFall and the impressive Philip Wilson next home.
The McMillan brothers shared the grid for the William Cooke Memorial Final, with Shane settling into the lead ahead of Derek and McNiece. Marc Morrell was looking rapid in fourth too, and the cars circulated as one with absolutely nothing between them. Shane threated to break clear, but he was just doing enough to keep the rest at bay. He duly came home to land the coveted trophy, with Derek making it a McMillan 1-2. McNiece, Morrell, Gary Butler and McFall completed the top finishers.

The Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey event ended in controversial fashion, when winner on the road Gordy McKee was disqualified for a technical infringement in post race scrutineering. The opening heat saw a clear win for European Champion Jordan Rochford over Tim Hazlett and Vince Litter. Irish Champion Nigel Jackson then took the win in heat two after a defensive drive ahead of McKee, Aaron Stewart and Ricky Shaw.
McKee and Jackson lined up side by side on the front row for the King of Aghadowey final, with McKee holding on ahead all the way home from a challenging Rochford. After the post race checks Rochford was elevated to the King of Aghadowey title, ahead of Litter and Richard Stewart.

A brief shower before the opening Superstox heat saw the going very slippery indeed, with World champion lee Davison one of those to suffer a half spin. Cyril Hawe was doing well out front, but he lost out in the closing stages to Ed Davis. Davis just held on for the win, holding off a spirited comeback from Davison. Heat two again saw Hawe lead the way, but this time it was Jordan Robinson who scorched past to take the win ahead of Davison.
The clutch start final again came after a brief shower, with Hawe and Brian Lammey taking turns out front before Davis hit the lead spot. Ed had no answer to the pace of Robinson though, as Jordan stormed past to take his second Aghadowey final win in succession. Davis held on for second ahead of Sean mark and Chris McArdle.

The opening Thunder Rods heat saw a number of early cautions for incidents and debris on track, but novice Gareth McCrory held his nerve to take the victory over Jonny Teggart and James Goldie, after a number of drivers had tried to wrestle the lead from Gareth on the outside line. Heat two saw another novice grade win, this time for Jameson Tweed who led home McCrory and Dylan Booth.
The final had the makings of a cracking race, with a whole host of cars battling in a huge pack for the lead. Despite huge pressure from behind McCrory hung on out front to land his second win of the afternoon, with Jason Darragh, George Esler and David Baird the other top finishers.

The fun in the Back to Basics Bangers was on the top level all day, with some great action in heat one including a rollover for Andrew Buchanan. Amidst the chaos Steven Bolton nipped home for the win over Dan Shannon and Jake Macnicol. Bolton again steered his Ford Puma home in heat two, taking an explosive win ahead of Phil Davey and Josh Goligher.
The final also got off to a breathtaking start, with some big hits as Shannon went ahead. He came a cropper though as he tried to remove a backmarker, allowing Steven Bolton through to the lead ahead of his father Ian Bolton. Ian was struggling with an ailing car, and in Steven’s attempts to showboat to the crowd he launched an attack on his Dad and only succeeded in killing his own car! Ian completed the last lap and a half to take a popular if unlikely win!
