Donnell Takes Rookie Bangers Victory at Tullyroan
On an action packed evening of racing at Tullyroan Oval, Larne’s William Donnell avoided the chaos around the track to take victory in a well subscribed Rookie Bangers final after a great drive. The other winners at the Bann Hire sponsored event were Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie in the Superstox, Portadown’s Mark Corry in the Lightning Rods and Ballybogey’s Norman Purdy in the Thunder Rods.

A full field of Rookie Bangers was always going to mean action galore, and they kicked off in style as Dylan Connolly went for a huge barrel roll down the home straight on the opening lap! Thankfully he emerged unscathed, and Paul O’Connor blasted ahead on the restart. Amidst the action Paul pulled well clear, only to be spun on the final lap by a backmarker! Such was his lead however, that he quickly corrected himself and still took the flag ahead of William Donnell and Matthew McKinstry. Heat two saw Conor Finegan out front, before his big rival in the local points championship chase, Josh Goligher, eased past to take victory.

The final saw an early stoppage for the second rollover of the night, as Peter McConnell found himself upended on the back straight. McKinstry powered ahead on the restart, before Deano McGrath took over out front. Deano lost out within sight of the flag though, handing the victory and the Bann Hire silverware to Donnell ahead of McKinstry and Ryan Nixon, after Goligher was demoted having jumped the restart. That handed the year long DMC Points championship to Finegan by the slenderest of margins.

Brian Lammey led a healthy field of Superstox away for their first heat, the local photographer holding sway out front until well past half distance. Ethan Dilly and Alan Haugh then had turns out front, but they had no answer to the pace of Steven Haugh who grabbed the win ahead of Lee Davison. Dilly and Alan Haugh again contested the lead in heat two, but this time British Champion Davison was in fine form, and his late charge from the superstar grade netted him the win over David Beattie and Alan Haugh.
The final doubled up as the opening round of the NIOval TV Series, and it turned out to be the race of the night! Alan Haugh and Dilly again contested the early lead, with young star Graham Meek making huge strides towards the front until he unfortunately found himself in the wall. By now the star names were knocking at the door having worked their way through, and into the final few laps it was a three way scrap between Sean Mark, Davison and Irish Champion Kyle Beattie for the honours. They traded hits with the bumpers in an enthralling final few laps, with Beattie ahead when it mattered to take a fantastic win over Davison and Mark.

It was slightly greasy for the opening Lightning Rods heat, with Ronan McNally holding off allcomers to take the win over Aaron Stewart and World Champ Nigel Jackson. Heat two saw an emphatic win for Ricky Shaw after a great drive indeed, with Mark McCambridge and Stewart this time the placemen.
Dylan McCann was the first to show in the final from the yellow grade, with Mark Corry having his best run of the night to go second and chase down the leader. Mark quickly arrived on the tail of the McCann, but he found Dylan a much tougher nut to crack than many would have thought. Quickly the pack had joined them in what was now a huge fight for the lead, until Corry found a gap down the inside of McCann on the back straight. That netted Mark the lead and ultimately the victory, over Martin O’Flaherty, Stewart, Jackson and Stuart Agnew.

The Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup completed the race bill, with Mark McLaughlin taking the opening heat victory over John Goligher, after first over the line Jason Darragh was docked two places for contact. The reversed line up for heat two again saw over twenty cars on track, and saw Norman Purdy quickly assume the top spot to claim the win over Ryan Nixon and Gavin Gamble.
The final saw Purdy on pole, and in just his second meeting back in the fold Norman burst clear to take a fine Challenge Cup win. McLaughlin was a gallant runner up, with Nixon getting the best of a big places battle to take third spot.
