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.

Championship of the World Preview

If you race Sports cars you have to race at Le Mans, if it’s NASCAR then it’s Daytona, for Nationals it’s Ipswich and you’ve a 2 Litre Hot Rod then you have to experience the World final in Northern Ireland. This is the 10th running of the annual speedweekend in Northern Ireland and on each occasion the 2 Litre’s have topped the bill and this year sees the fourth staging of the 2 Litre Hot Rod Championship of the World by Davy McCall’s promotion.

After putting on a master class at last year’s Ipswich Spedeweekend to win the 2013 World title, it’s Randalstown’s Shane Murray who defends the title. Shane hasn’t been just as dominant at home this season as he perhaps was last season, but has still popped up to win both rounds of the Tullymore Road Motors Series with closed grid starts. When it’s big race day Shane is never far off the pace, don’t be surprised if he retains the title.
Portadown’s Adam Hylands was runner up in 2013 and goes into the World final on a rich vein of form, picking up the European and British Championships this season already. If you’re looking for omens then Murray and Hylands have traded titles this season, if Murray won it last year then Hylands has won it this year and vice versa. Adam hasn’t always had the best of luck in the local Speedweekend’s, but I’m sure he’ll be there or there abouts come the chequered flag on Sunday afternoon.

While many people will see Murray and Hylands as the two hot favourites for the world, there is plenty of more than capable drivers throughout the remainder of the field.
Former Lightning Rod World Champion Stephen Emerson is in just his second full season in the 2 Litres and has already been taking podium places in the big events at home, he knows his way around Tullyroan and is likely to be at the business end of the field throughout the weekend.
After a season of on/ off racing, double world champion Wayne Woolsey just about made it into the field this weekend. Wayne took his first world title at Nuttscorner Oval in 2008 before going on to defend it in 2009 at Hednesford, he started last year’s British Championship at the Tullyroan Speedweekend on the front row and don’t be surprised if he is there or there abouts on Sunday afternoon.
Mark Madill, Adam Heatrick and Philip Beatty have done a number of seasons in the 2 Litres now, each have posted victories and all of them are at the wheel of very quick Saxo’s and could well get up amongst the Trophies.
More recent recruits to the class include Allen Cherry who made the switch from ProStocks last season and is at the wheel of a Davy McCall prepared Corsa. Former F2 racer Jack Boal has moved into the class this year and has proved to be quick in an ex Wayne Woolsey Corsa. Perhaps the fastest newcomer to the class though is Joel Richardson, Joel picked up a second place in the British Championship at Hednesford on his first trip away to race, he went on to qualify well up in the National championship at Ipswich and has been quick around Tullyroan.

The visiting contingent is led by England’s Charlie Jowers and Scotland’s Gordon Alexander. Jowers has been a regular at the Northern Ireland Speedweekends in recent years and took a top 10 finish in the British Championship when it was staged at Tullyroan last year, he’ll be keen to build on that.
Gordon Alexander is another driver who is well used to making the trip to NI, a seasoned veteran of the Saloon Stock Cars, Gordon was a regular at their big weekends in Ulster. Since moving to the 2 Litres he has made several trips across the water. Alexander impressed at Lochgelly during the European weekend and will be looking to get into the mix this weekend.

The action starts on Saturday night with a ⅔ format for the qualifying heats and the big race will be staged on Sunday afternoon.
May the best man (or woman) win!

Scott Morgan takes Hoosier R10

Round 10 of the Hoosier Racing Tires series took place at a dry and hot Arlington on 16/07/14. The heat must have got to the drivers as the driving standards can only be described as shocking!! There was probably more contact in the Hot Rods than the stock cars.
Dalton Scarlett managed to stay ahead and take a well deserved first win in Heat 1 from a determined Chris Harvey.
Scott Morgan took Heat 2, then won the final again from Chris Harvey and Gavin Botfield.


Heat 1:78 Dalton Scarlett,3,30,745,310,31,303,330,280,29

Hylands Double at Aghadowey

Adam Hylands set out his stall ahead of the 2 Litre Hot Rod World final by taking a heat and final double as the 2 Litres raced for the last time in Northern Ireland ahead of their World final in just under 2 weeks time.
Hylands took the win in a very wet opening heat after the heavens had opened a few races earlier.
Heat two went the way of Wayne Woolsey
There was just nine cars out for the final, as I’m sure a mixtures of the earlier wet conditions and drivers wanting to preserve their car for the world final took it’s toll.
Hylands again took the win with Wayne Woolsey second and Mervyn Emerson third


Heat One: 54 Adam Hylands, 70, 935, 976, 924, 923, 970, 918, 966, 991.
Heat Two: 950 Wayne Woolsey, 970, 54, 70, 976, 935, 924, 991.
Final: 54 Adam Hylands, 950 Wayne Woolsey, 924 Mervyn Emerson, 70, 970, 935, 991.
