Best of British for Bell and Davison!
Portadown duo Glenn Bell and Lee Davison both tasted British Championship glory at the DMC Race Promotions Speedweekend at Tullyroan Oval. In front of a packed house Bell raced home to the National Hot Rods British title after a superb race, whilst arguably the drive of the weekend went to Davison as he charged through a star studded international field to land the Superstox British title from towards the back of the grid.

All four corners of the British Isles were represented in the DRS Steelbuildings National Hot Rods British Championship, with Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy grabbing the first heat win as he just held off Derek Martin at the flag. Heat two saw a fantastic victory for former British Champ John Christie, as he roared around long time leader Keith Martin on the wide outside line for a superb victory that had the crowd on their feet. The final heat saw Ahoghill’s Shane Murray in victory lane, as he steered his Ginetta home ahead of World Champion Robert McDonald from Scotland.
The opening exchanges in the British title race were simply breathtaking, as pole man Christie and Glenn Bell circulated side by side for some time, with Murray right in the mix too as all three chased the lead. The fans were on the edge of their seats with nothing at all between the three in the damp conditions, each trying every line and style possible in their attempts to edge an advantage. Bell finally did break clear as Scotsman Gordon Alexander joined the fun at the front. Glenn duly completed the remainder of the race to take the British Championship crown, with Murray and Alexander completing the top three at the end of a race that will live long in the memory.
The reverse grid British Revenge Race ended in controversial fashion when the front runners, all on different tyre choices, all came close together nearing the end. The difference in pace saw Adam Maxwell accidentally tip leader Derek Martin wide onto the slippy outside line and ultimately into the wall. Maxwell took the flag but the Stewards had no choice but to disqualify him for the unintentional contact which ended Martin’s race, handing the win to Murray over McDonald and Bell. The meeting finale was for the superb Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy, which saw Murray romp to victory over McDonald and Bell to complete a great weekend for the National Hot Rods.

Two graded heats determined the starting order for the Superstox British Championship race, with the opening qualifier falling to Aughnacloy novice grader David Beattie ahead of former World Champion Barry Stephen from Scotland and Paddy Murphy. Heat two saw a big crash for Dutchman Ad Melissant, as Beattie again led before a star trio of Stephen, World Champion Michael Green and European, National and English Champion Nick Roots blasted past. Roots got the best of a great fight to take the win over Green and Stephen.
Stephen started the Mk2 Escort Shells and Spares British Championship race from pole position, with Beattie alongside. Stephen was initially tracked by Green before he dropped out, and then by Dan Roots. All eyes in the damp conditions were on Portadown’s former World Champion Lee Davison though, as he blasted through from 19th on the grid to bring himself right into contention. Lee had made an inspired choice on set up on the tricky surface, and he romped home to land the British title in some style ahead of Dan Roots and Kyle Beattie after a thrilling race.
On Sunday the Irish Open Championship was up for grabs, with the heats falling to Stephen and Kyle Beattie. The second one was an especially good encounter, with Beattie coming back from what looked like an impossible position to take the win. Ed Davis looked odds on for the win at a time but suffered a technical issue, whilst Murray Jones was also right in the mix for much of the distance.
The Irish Open Final saw Stephen the first to show with Green and Davison right on his case. Davison departed the scene when his wheel guard broke loose, with Green then bursting through to land the Irish Open title with an immaculate drive to the flag. Nick Roots was a gallant runner up with Stephen in third.

The Escorts and Anglias of yesteryear entertained as a large field of visitors turned up for the Classic Hot Rods action. DMC promoter Davy McCall was the star of the show on his own circuit, taking victory in both the Irish Open Championship and the Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy. On Saturday McCall and England’s Gavin Taber shared the heat wins before McCall romped home to Irish Open glory over Scotland’s Graeme Callendar and Taber.
Sunday saw McCall take the opener after a super drive from the rear of the field, whilst Scotland’s Jock Campbell took the heat two win by the narrowest of Margins. The Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy is always an emotional affair and it was McCall who took the win over Taber and Campbell.

Top of the support racing was the coveted Keir Millar Memorial Trophy for the young stars in the Ninja Karts. Antrim’s Leyton Hughes was on fire in the heats, winning the first ahead of Cumbria’s Toby Tyson and repeating the feat in heat two ahead of Oxfordshire’s Finley Kew. In the final conditions became very tricky as the rain started to fall, with Tyson coming home to land the superb trophy over Hughes and Kew.
BTCC star Matt Simpson joined the 2.0 Hot Rods field for their Irish Masters, and he was quickly up to speed with runner up slot in heat one behind Stuart Cochrane. Conor Hughes took the second heat at a canter ahead of Drew McKeown, which left Gary Wilson and Cochrane sharing the front row for the final on points. Wilson made the best getaway, and did tremendously well to withstand enormous pressure from Cochrane throughout the race distance. Wilson took a great win over Cochrane and Mervyn Emerson, with Simpson coming home in a creditable fifth place in some very tricky conditions.
Stock Rods and Lightning Rods were also in action over the weekend, with Glenavy’s Dan Shannon landing the Tullyroan Challenge Cup for the Stock Rods after a somewhat bruising encounter on Saturday evening. Shane McMillan and Curtis Greer completed the placemen, whilst in the Lightning Rods Richard Stewart took a clear win over Jordan Rochford and Nigel Jackson.
