Fast, wheel-to-wheel racing action at an affordable cost – that’s what makes 2 Litre hot Rod racing so popular on the ovals of England and Northern Ireland. These space-framed cars run on control Hoosier tyres, and are confined to the Ford 2L Pinto engine, making them a cost effective way of getting the thrills that hot rod racing brings. Around £15,000 can put one of these machines on track, with close racing guaranteed at every meeting. The “2 Litres” have been around Spedeworth Raceways for some time, racing across the southern English raceways and in East Anglia, whilst 2009 has also seen the formula spread its’ wings to the Incarace promotion in the Midlands. The formula has also had a strong base in Northern Ireland for many years, with the best each country has to offer battling it out in the major championships each season.

Murray starts 2015 in style

The 2015 Northern Ireland season saw debuts for a number of new cars, including World and National Champion Shane Murray's RCE Peugeot 106, Jason Devlin's Corsa and Francie Rafferty's Tigra, whilst there were also class debuts for Dean McFarland and Gary Thompson.

Star grader Mark Madill was the man on the move in the opening heat, and he saw a hard winter in the workshop pay dividends with a thoroughly deserved heat one success after a sublime drive through the field. Adam Hylands, in the borrowed McMillan Tigra, took the runner up slot ahead of Stuart Cochrane and Jack Boal.

Boal made no mistake in heat two, demoting early pacesetter McFarland at half distance to take the victory. Birthday boy Mervyn Emerson celebrated in second spot, ahead of Philip Beattie in his newly rebuilt Saxo.

McFarland again led the opening laps of the final, only for Sean Dynes to displace him once again at the half way stage. Sean soon had Murray all over his rear end whilst Adam Heatrick was also impressing in third. Murray was finding it difficult to find a way past Dynes despite repeated blue flags for the leader, but with the lap boards out Dynes hit problems which gifted the lead to the multi-champion. Murray coasted out the final laps to record a debut win for his new mount, and send some very ominous signals to his rivals with much more development still to come from the superbly presented machine. Heatrick, Emerson and Cochrane were the placemen.

Heat One: 931 Mark Madill, 54, 979, 993, 976, 70, 990, 342, 935, 988.
Heat Two: 993 Jack Boal, 924, 935, 70, 931, 976, 979, 914, 984, 921.
Final: 70 Shane Murray, 342 Adam Heatrick, 924 Mervyn Emerson, 979, 988, 976, 914, 921, 943, 987.
