Leyton Lands Golden Helmet Win at Sunny Aghadowey
Young Antrim star Leyton Hughes was on top form at Aghadowey Oval’s holiday meeting on Sunday afternoon, as he landed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Trophy after a fantastic drive against an international entry. Leyton held off Scottish driver Rachel Kidd in a tense finish to land the spoils, with other big victories at the LJN Designs of Ballykelly sponsored meeting falling to Randalstown’s Sam McNeice in the Junior Productions, Portadown’s Mark Corry (Lightning Rods) and Dublin’s Gary Butler (Stock Rods), whilst recent Portadown newcomer Gary Fowler took a faultless hat-trick of wins in the 2.0 Hot Rods. The entertaining Caravan Destruction Derby fell to Coagh’s Dessie Dallas after an entertaining event.

Scottish trio Rachel and Dougie Kidd and Declan Dixon joined the locals for the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet, with Dougie Kidd the man to watch during the heats. He took the opener with a fine drive over his sister Rachel with Andrew Hawe in third, before Dougie then made it two from two by taking the second heat win too, this time over Hawe and Leyton Hughes.
Dougie Kidd and Hawe qualified up front for the Golden Helmet final, with Dougie setting the initial pace ahead of his sister Rachel. Antrim ace Hughes then pulled off a tremendous outside pass to take up the running, and despite the close attentions of Rachel Kidd he held on for a deserved win. Rachel came home in second in her very last Ninja Kart race having now reached the upper age limit, with Portadown’s Max Hobson taking the third placed trophy.

The coveted Young Trophy, presented annually by the Young and Hosie families, was up for grabs in the Junior Productions, with Randalstown’s Sam Percy showing the rest a clean pair of heels in the opener to take a great win over Graham Meek and Sam McNeice. Alex Milligan and then Jordan Nicholl had spells out front in the second heat, before Percy lost out as he bravely tried the outside line to grab the lead. That opened the door for Mark Crawford to take the win over Adam McFall and McNeice.
The Young Trophy final saw the impressive Percy set the initial pace before McNeice found the slightest of gaps down his inside to take up the running. Sam duly completed the rest of the distance to land the victory in some style, with Crawford and Matthew Nicholl completing the podium finishers.

For the Lightning Rods it was the second round of the A Percy Body Repairs Challenge Series, with Ronan McNally fighting a rearguard battle in the opening heat to hold off a whole posse of challengers. Ronan just got the verdict over Nigel Jackson and Jordan Rochford on the line. Heat two saw Ally Neill stretch clear out front early on, before mechanical problems forced him into retirement. He left oil on the track which made the going very tricky for a time, with Mark Corry coming out on top to take the win over Dermot Tynan and McNally.
The closed grid final saw Corry get the best getaway to open out a good lead, as the rest squabbled behind. Rochford was closing fast at the end, but Mark held it all together to take the victory and a nice voucher courtesy of the series sponsors. Rochford was a gallant runner up, with McNally coming home third after getting the best of a huge battle amongst the pack that went on for much of the race.

An excellent turnout of 2.0 Hot Rods produced three excellent races, with novice grader Gary Fowler on top form all afternoon. He calmly took the opener over Stephen Emerson and Drew McKeown, before it became a Fowler double as he raced home to the second heat win too. This time Lester McCloy took second in his best run in the formula to date, with Thomas Dilly and Denver Grattan next home.
An upgrading to yellow made little difference to Fowler in the LJN Designs final, as he quickly swooped past McCloy and Noel Tierney to take up the running. Gary raced home to take the win and complete a faultless hat-trick for the afternoon, with Dilly in second and Adam Best the top star grader in third place. The 2.0 Hot Rods were on top form all afternoon, which bodes well for the upcoming British Championship at Aghadowey at the end of the month.

Prior to the opening Stock Rods heat, the new British Champion Derek McMillan was paraded to the crowd following his big win at Ipswich last weekend. Derek also received the Racewear Design DMC Race Promotions Driver of the Month trophy for June. Recent graduate from the Junior Productions, Adam Weir from Broughshane, showed great maturity to take the opening heat win from the novice grade after a fine drive. Stuart Agnew and Gary Butler chased him home, before Adam again set the pace in heat two. The race was suspended when Samuel Murphy lost a wheel, which brought the field onto the tail of the leader for the restart. Philip Wilson found a gap down the inside of Weir to go ahead, the Larne man just holding off Butler for the win with Johny Gillespie in third.
Butler and Weir shared the front row for the final, with Dublin man Butler immediately setting the pace out front. Weir ran a creditable second for some time, before multi-champion Derek McMillan got past him to chase after the leader. Butler was totally in command though, taking the win over McMillan with 16-year-old Weir again excelling in third spot.

The holiday afternoon came to a climax with the crazy Caravan Destruction Derby. Tam Agnew and Matthew McKinstry got well and truly stuck in early on, before both went out on the Brown Trout Bend. It came down to a battle between caravan race specialist Dessie Dallas and Thomas Kilpatrick, with Kilpatrick doing his best to avoid the carnage and Dallas intent on causing some! Both went in to the stranded Agnew hard, and when they both couldn’t continue the win was awarded to Dallas for his entertaining antics.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, LJN deSigns of Ballykelly
