Top Racing As Tullyroan Remembers Ormond Christie
The local oval racing world came together to remember the late, great Ormond Christie at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, and just like he would’ve liked the drivers went on to produce some spectacular racing for the packed house.
Ahoghill’s Shane Murray grabbed victory in the National Hot Rods Ulster Championship, after Portadown’s Gary Woolsey had taken the spoils in the final of Round 5 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Aughnacloy’s Adam Best raced to victory in the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship whilst Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer continued his recent good form with victory in the Butler Motorsport Challenge Series for Stock Rods. Other winners at the Hankook Performance Tyres sponsored meeting were Strabane duo James McKinney in the Lightning Rods and Paddy Hannigan in the Thunder Rods.

Before racing commenced John Christie unveiled his Fiesta in the colours his Father Ormond used to win the 1997 World Championship, which brought a fantastic reception from the fans. A minute’s applause then filled the stadium as one of the greats of oval racing was remembered following his recent passing.
Ben McKee was the star turn in the National Hot Rods heats, taking the opener at a canter over Gary Woolsey and the repeating the feat in the second outing. That one was a little more difficult for Ben as he had to overcome a late restart when Podge McQuaid lost a wheel. Simon Kennedy and Ian McReynolds filled the places.
The final saw McKee again out front, with Woolsey soon chasing him down. Shane Murray was another on a mission from the rear, and as we reached the closing stages all three were together chasing the win. Woolsey superbly went to the outside and edged himself alongside McKee, outrunning Ben on the drag to the flag to win by inches on the line in a tremendous finish.
Murray, having had to settle for third in the final, then lined up on pole position for the Ulster Championship race, courtesy of having set the fastest lap time of the night. He had a great dice with Glenn Bell early on, before settling ahead. A caution was introduced at 5 laps to go and the ‘choose cone challenge’ system used, which saw John Christie take the gamble and come up alongside Murray for the restart. John gave it his all to chase the lead, but unfortunately ended up spinning to the wall. Murray took the win over Bell and Jaimie McCurdy, the latter having gambled on the outside late on.

Aughnacloy’s Adam Best and Antrim’s Conor Hughes shared the front row for the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship, and proceeded to lap side by side for the first few tours of the title race. Best finally settled ahead and raced home to record his first ever Irish Championship victory. Hughes could be more then pleased with his runner up position, with Gary Wilson taking third from Stuart Cochrane.
Just a few laps into the Irish Revenge race Best lost a wheel on the Tullyroan Bend, causing a caution period. Mark Madill was in complete control of this one and romped home to the win over Gary O’Neill and Cochrane.

Ryan Murphy accounted for both heat wins in the well subscribed Stock Rods division, taking a clear heat one win over Mark Kilpatrick and Rick Purdy. Heat two saw a number of caution periods, one for a huge home straight crash, but once again Murphy held his nerve to land the win over Willie Taggart and World Champion Derek McMillan.
Jonny Cardwell and Curtis Greer claimed the front row for the Grand Final of the Butler Motorsport Challenge Series on aggregate points, with the McMillan brothers Shane and Derek filling row two after Jonny Gillespie failed to take up his third spot. Cardwell and Greer battled hard over the opening laps before Cullybackey man Curtis edged ahead. Curtis was in total control and raced home to the victory over Cardwell and Derek McMillan. All three shared a large number of tyres courtesy of the sponsors Butler Motorsport.

New World Champion Nigel Jackson sported his gold roof for the first time in the Lightning Rods, as Mark Corry took the opening heat win after relieving Ethan Dilly of the lead. Dilly claimed the second heat win too, but only after a Stewards Enquiry as to the manner in which he went ahead. Aaron Brunton was the man who lost out, spinning from what looked a promising position.
The final developed into a great five way battle for the lead, with Ronan McNally at the front and holding off the attentions of the others. James McKinney and Richard Stewart had gallant attempts on the outside but to no avail, before McKinney found a gap down the inside to race home to a well deserved feature race victory. Adam McCann and McNally filled the places.

In the Thunder Rods, newcomer Paddy Hannigan from Strabane showed the established stars a clean pair of heels all evening as he completed a faultless hat-trick. In the opener he came home ahead of Norman Purdy and Jonny Teggart, before Purdy and David Gurney filled the places in the second heat.
A promotion to the yellow grade for the final couldn’t stop Hannigan, as he claimed the trophy in style over David Wilson and Purdy.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hankook Performance Tyres
