Triumph For Thomas As Racing Returns At Aghadowey
The new oval racing season burst into life at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with some fantastic racing keeping the big crowd entertained throughout the opening meeting. Portadown’s Thomas Dilly took the honours in the headlining Simpson Race Exhausts World Series round for National Hot Rods, whilst Cloughmills driver Sean Mark raced to a heat and final double in a very well subscribed Superstox formula.
Nutts Corner’s Michael Woods took a faultless hat-trick in the 2.0 Hot Rods, with Portadown’s Mark Corry and Essex racer Christian Murray taking heat and final double wins in the Lightning Rods and Ninja Karts repectively.

Podge McQuaid put his superb new Lotus Exige to good use in the opening National Hot Rods heat, as he led for most of the distance to record the win over a rapid looking Adam Hylands who had him under serious pressure towards the end. Thomas Dilly and Simon Kennedy were next across the line. Kennedy was the one to watch in heat two, as his newly liveried Vauxhall Tigra took a decisive win ahead of Dilly’s Ginetta and the Mercedes of Ben McKee.
The final was easily the race of the night, as Dilly got himself out front and invited allcomers to wrestle the lead away. McKee initially tried the outside line, before Hylands attempted the difficult pass time and again. Adam drew alongside and sometimes ahead, but Thomas used all his experience the hold them all at bay and take a great win. Hylands was excellent value in second ahead of McKee, McQuaid and Shane Murray.

A fantastic field of 25 Superstox arrived in the pits to do battle at the season opener, boosted by World Champion Nick Roots and his brother Dan from the south of England. It was a fine start to their World Championship year at Aghadowey, with the big one scheduled to be contested in September.
On a very busy track, Sean Mark relegated early leader Brian Lammey to take the heat one win over Graham Meek and a rapid looking Craig McConnell in his new WRC car. It was McConnell who then powered through to take the heat two win, ahead of Jamie McCann and Lee Davison after Curtis Greer was penalised from second for jumping the start.
The final saw drama aplenty as the bumpers were put to good use. Mark again worked his way ahead early on, edging out a healthy lead as the star men squabbled. David Beattie, another in a new WRC chassis, was driving superbly to cut down the deficit, and on the final lap he went for a last gasp lunge at the leader. He was just too far back though, and his gallant efforts only succeeded in seeing him spin out of contention. That handed second to McConnell on the run to the flag, ahead of World Champion Roots in third, with the race ending in spectacular fashion as Kyle Beattie went for a rollover on the exit of turn four.

A pleasing field of sixteen 2.0 Hot Rods took to the grid, with the promise of more to come in the next few weeks. Michael Woods was the man of the evening, winning both heats with ease and then repeating the feat in the final, and that even after a promotion to the blue grade.
The opening heat Scott Cochrane and welcome returnee Jamie McCann chase Woods over the line, before Michael finished ahead of Denver Grattan and McCann in heat two. The final Saw Woods get a great jump from the front of the blue garde and he left the rest trailing in his wake. Cochrane and Gary Fowler completed the top three ahead of McCann and Jordan Rochford.

A new era for the Lightning Rods dawned with the first meeting under the new rules, with BMW’s now joining the Sierra’s on the grid and everyone on the new control tyre. Formula debutant Dean Catherwood in a beautiful BMW led the way in the opening heat, before being overhauled on the final lap by Stuart Agnew who took the win. Heat two saw the first ever BMW win, as Mark Corry raced his example to victory lane over Mark McCambridge and Agnew.
Corry quickly got ahead in the final, and despite the best efforts of McCambridge, British Champion Ricky Shaw and Agnew, Mark held on the complete the double and the dream start for his new car.

A very pleasing six newcomers lined up for the opening Ninja Karts heat, with Essex based Christian Murray taking the win after a great outside run to pass the impressive Jack Morrison in the closing stages. Heat two saw Caolan Fegan out front setting the pace, until Ben Hawe pulled off a fantastic move on the final lap to snatch the victory.
In the final Morrison held the initial lead, but caution periods wiped out his advantage at the front. Murray soon took over at the head of the pack, Christian romping home to his second win of the night which sees him upgraded to the blue grade for the next meeting. Riley Dawson-Stirling and Fegan completed the top three.
