Shannon Shines at Tullyroan Season Opener
The new oval racing season kicked off in style at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with a huge turnout of both competitors and spectators. Glenavy’s Dan Shannon took victory in the feature event, the Stock Rods Irish Open Championship, whilst Crumlin’s Adam Maxwell marked his return to racing with a polished heat and final double in the National Hot Rods. Limavady’s Josh Goligher was another heat and final double winner, this time in the 2L National Bangers, but even that couldn’t stop his rivals Team KODS taking the Irish Teams Championship victory. 10 year old debutant Leyton Hughes from Antrim took a heat and final double in the Junior Productions, whilst the feature race winner in the 1300 Stock Cars was Annaghmore’s Robbie Wright.

The local Stock Rods were boosted by a trio of welcome Scottish visitors for the Irish Open Championship, with Joe Largey getting the better of Siobhan Martin to take the heat one win. Martin and Christ Lattka filled the places, before Nutts Corner’s Mark Crawford took a decisive win in heat two by some margin with Mark Foster impressing in second ahead of Shane McMillan.
Aggregate points saw Scots duo Lattka and Martin lock out the front row of the grid for the Irish Open Final, with Lattka showing first out front. Dan Shannon was quickly on the attack, putting a great move on Lattka into turn three to take up the running. Shannon pulled clear to take his first major victory in the formula after a fine drive, with Martin and Lattka filling out the top three.

A record breaking field for a domestic National Hot Rods encounter of 22 cars lined up for round eight of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. The opening heat saw a number of caution periods, with Podge McQuaid leading in his pretty Lotus. Former World Champion Adam Maxwell then pulled off a great outside line move to take the win over McQuaid and Derek Martin. Heat two was the race of the night by some distance, with seasoned campaigner Keith Martin leading the way at the head of the field. Entering the closing stages it became a fierce five car battle for the lead, with Carl Sloan doing his best on the outside line. He dropped back, with Adam Hylands then hauling himself alongside Martin on the run to the flag to win by inches on the line.
The final saw a couple of major incidents that eliminated a number of cars, before it came down to a titanic three way dice for the lead between Maxwell, Derek Martin and Hylands. Despite all that the others could throw at him, Maxwell held on to complete his double for the evening and announce that he was well and truly back! Hylands, D Martin and McQuaid filled out the premier places.

A very respectable entry of 2L National Bangers entertained all evening, racing for the Irish Teams Championship. Josh Goligher took the opening heat for The Hooligans ahead of Mike Flaherty and Dac Patton, before heat two saw Lewis Burke take the chequered flag for Team KODS over Lucas Goligher and Jay Gurney.
The final saw some big hits handed out, with Josh Goligher again grabbing the win over Flaherty and Matthew Nicholl. Going in to the last car moving Destruction Derby The Hooligans led the points table, but Tony Gillespie’s sterling win saw Team KODS leapfrog to the top of the standings to take the Irish Teams Championship title.

Five newcomers completed their ORCi Junior Assessments prior to the opening Junior Productions race, with two of them being Ninja Karts World Champion Leyton Hughes and Irish Champion Ryan Berry. Berry led the field for most of the first heat, only to be nudged wide and out of contention as he and Hughes fought for the top spot. Leyton took the flag ahead of Declan O’Connor, but both were demoted by the Race Stewards for contact. That handed a first ever win in the formula to Lauren Berry ahead of Daniel Stewart. Hughes made no mistake in heat two, holding off Stewart and O’Connor for his first Junior Production win.
Ryan Berry led early on in the final, before he was challenged and passed by Hughes. As Hughes hit the front, Stewart was coming on strong nearing the end but Leyton just managed to hold on to compete a fine double to earn a rise to yellow grade after just one meeting. Stewart was great value in second ahead of Lauren Berry and Stewart Hanna.

1300 Stock Cars Completing the programme were the 1300 Stock Cars, and they produced some fantastic racing with the sparks flying as the bumpers went in hard all night long. Young Ty Richardson put his novice grading to good use to land the victory in the opening heat over Marcus Crossett, before it was Josh McKinstry who took a highly entertaining second heat over Ivan Elliott.
The final was another blinding race, with a late yellow flag bringing the field onto the tail of leader Richardson. Ty showed great composure to hold them all off, and just when it looked like the silverware was his, car problems saw him hesitate allowing Robbie Wright to steal through for a last gasp victory. Richardson had to make do with second ahead of Crossett and Elliott.
