Dominant Derek Takes Tullyroan Double
Dungannon’s Derek Martin produced a dominant display as he raced to a heat and final double in Round 5 of the Simpson Race Exhausts National Hot Rods World Series NI at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night.
On a crisp, dry evening of high speed racing, Randalstown teenager Sam McNeice claimed victory in the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, whilst the other winners at the AMK Fruit & Veg sponsored event were young Loanends star Jonathan Brown in the 1300 Stock Cars and local Tullyroan driver Allen Cherry in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

An impressive 18 car field came to grid for the opening National Hot Rod heat, including visiting Cork driver Jeff Riordan. Andrew Stewart set the opening pace in his pretty Ginetta, but lost out just after half distance as Ben McKee surged ahead to take the win in his Mercedes. Stewart and Davy McKay filled the top three ahead of Derek Martin in fourth. Sean Dynes and then McKay had turns out front in heat two, before a great drive from Martin brought him onto the tail of the leader with five laps to go. Derek quickly went to McKay’s outside, and a touch between the two into the Tullyroan Bend saw McKay spin out of contention. Martin raced home to take an impressive win over Shane Murray and Adam Hylands.
If Martin was impressive on his way to the heat two victory, he was nothing short of phenomenal in the final! As Dynes led the opening laps, Martin was already scything his way through from the star grade. He blasted ahead on lap ten, and proceeded to pull a huge advantage in a masterful performance. Derek was over half a lap to the good at the chequered flag as he landed another fine haul of points to increase his Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI lead. McKee, Gary Woolsey, Hylands, Murray and Glenn Bell completed the top places in the feature race.

A domestic record of seventeen cars contested the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, with the 10-16 year olds producing some fine racing all evening. Randalstown’s Sam McNeice raced through to take the opening heat win is style despite some pressure from runner up James Stewart and third placed man Jack Morrow. Heat two saw Portadown’s Alex Milligan provide a stern resistance to hang on out front for his first ever race win. Sam Percy piled the pressure on throughout the race, but Milligan kept his nerve to take the flag. Behind Percy, Chelsy Rainey impressed in third ahead of Morrow and McNeice.
McNeice and Morrow shared the front row for the Golden Helmet final, with Sam heading Jack from the first green flag. There was little to choose between them with Morrow just unable to get close enough to mount a serious challenge. There was a great places battle further down the field, before they were all brought up short by a late caution flag when Rainey lost a wheel. At the resumption McNeice surged home to the chequered flag to land the win and the superb Golden Helmet trophy, with Morrow, James Stewart, Callum Magill and Percy rounding out the top six.

The all action 1300 Stock Cars traded blows all evening as they contested the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Matthew Milliken made good his escape to win the opening heat ahead of Jonathan Brown and Jon McQuillan, before Matthew repeated the dose in heat two to take another fine victory, having staved off a last bend do or die attack from Brown.

Milliken got ahead early in the Challenge Cup final as the others all tripped over each other as the bumpers went flying in early on. Brown and McQuillan broke free from the pack and gave chase to the leader, with Brown punting Milliken wide with just a handful of laps to go to claim a great win. The sixteen year old really is making a name for himself in the senior ranks. Robbie Wright stole through late on to grab second ahead of McQuillan and Jonny Patterson.

Another fine field of 2.0 Hot Rods saw a formula debut for Jordan McCann amongst the twenty strong grid. Donegal based rally preparation expert Trevor McConnell led them away in the opening heat on only his second meeting on the ovals, and he held on superbly well until well past half distance. Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer stepped out of the pack to challenge McConnell, Curtis swooping right around the outside to take the win over Allen Cherry and Denver Grattan. McConnell once again led them away in heat two, and again he held sway until well after the half way mark. This time it was Banbridge driver Grattan who surged past to take the lead and the win over Cherry and Greer.

Cherry was the first to break clear of the pack and give chase to McConnell in the AMK sponsored final. Trevor proved a tougher nut to crack this time, but Cherry soon powered clear after a fine outside line pass. There was to be no stopping the local Tullyroan driver, with Allen taking the win just ahead of Greer, Jordan Rochford and Grattan.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, AMK Fruit & Veg
