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.

McMillan powerboats to victory

It was a horrendous evening weather wise at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, but all the drivers coped admirably with the heavy rain to entertain the fans. Local favourite Adam Hylands back on track in his usual Saxo, with Antrim's Stephen Emerson also back in harness after suspension.

Kells ace Derek McMillan took the opening victory of the night, holding off Hylands and Jack Boal at the flag. World Champion Shane Murray had the bit between his teeth in the second heat, powering through from the back for a sublime win on the treacherous track. McMillan again impressed in second ahead of Adam Heatrick and Lee McCracken.

Ryan McClure set the early pace in the final, before McMillan edged by after 8 laps to take the lead. A huge places scrap led by Boal and Heatrick allowed McMillan to pull well clear, and he took the flag in some style to book a rise to the red grade for the next meeting. Mark Madill eventually got the best of the scrap for second, with Boal and Emerson next across the line.

Paul Wright is 2015 Midland Champion

At a sunny Northampton on 03/05/15 Paul Wright successfully defended the Midland Championship. The rain stopped as we arrived and the track staff worked hard to clear the water off the track. Heat 1 was won by Paul Wright with Mark Paffey taking Heat 2.
Gavin Botfield was on pole with Paul Wright alongside for the Midland Championship. After the rolling start the front two were side by side for the first lap with Paul then taking the lead. Mark Paffey made his way into second place and tried to chase down Paul, but there was always a three car length gap between them. By the flag the front two had a lead by the length of the straight. Dan Smith worked his way up to third. The weather was kind to us for once,as it started to rain as we all loaded up.

Thompson takes two at Tullyroan

Scottish visitor Gordon Alexander and returnee Adam Best helped swell the ranks of the 2.0 Hot Rods, but nobody had any answer to local man Gareth Thompson who swept to a fine win in the opening heat over Derek McMillan and Jack Boal. There was a great battle for the places between Mervyn Emerson, Mark Madill and Irish Champion Joel Richardson which kept the crowd on their toes.

Heat two saw a very popular win for Lee McCracken, who is back in harness this year following a year out after some rotten luck back in 2012 and 2013. Lee held his nerve despite the advances of runner up Best, with World Champion Shane Murray in third. Richardson found the wrath of the Steward on a number of occasions in this one for contact and starting in an incorrect grid position, and was duly excluded from the result.

Co. Waterford's Pat Casey was the first to show in the final, but Thompson wasted little time in powering through to the lead. Gareth had his former Wayne Woolsey machine performing very well, and easily came through to the win over Dungannon man Sean Dynes and Boal. The rapid Mark Madill was next up ahead of Murray and Best at the end of three exciting and frantic races from the Hot Rods.
