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.

Hylands hatrick at Tipperary SORA Cup

The second running of the SORA cup saw Adam Hylands dominate the event with victory in all 3 races of the evening. Hylands had travelled down to the meeting along with several other DMC Race Promotions drivers, along with entries from England and Scotland, to race on what is the fastest oval in Ireland.

The 2 Litre Hot Rod class is beginning to develop at Tipperary and 2015 should see a few new cars and drivers, the class presently not having enough entries to support a standalone race at Tipperary.

With the resurgence of the track under the new promotion, the class will hopefully blossom in 2015 and beyond


Heat 1: 54 Adam Hylands,75 Chris Crane,923 Stephen Emerson,67,925,999,993,944,951,906,941,31

Heat 2: 54 Adam Hylands,923 Stephen Emerson,67 Kerr Paterson,993,75,925,924,944,999,951

Final: 54 Adam Hylands,923 Stephen Emerson,75 Chris Crane,993,944

Hylands wins Northern Ireland Points

With the NI Points Championship finely balanced between Adam Hylands and Shane Murray it was to be interesting afternoon indeed. Murray showed his hand with a great drive to victory in heat one, reducing the deficit to Hylands to just one point, Scottish star Kerr Patterson being a notable visitor to this meeting having raced with several other at Tipperary the night before. Local Tullyroan driver Allen Cherry took a great win in heat two over Hylands, as he cemented his lead ahead of the last race of the campaign.

Mervyn Emerson stepped off pole position to the lead in the final, and he wouldn't be challenged right throughout the 25 laps. There was plenty going on behind though, as the star men were going at it hammer and tongs. As Emerson took a morale boosting win, Stuart Cochrane and Mark Madill followed him home. Fifth was good enough for Hylands to clinch the win in the NI Points Championship, just reward for his efforts right throughout 2014.

Close Racing at Tullyroan

One again the 2.0 Hot Rods thrilled the fans on the terraces at Tullyroan, with some close wheel to wheel racing between the cars. Stuart Cochrane managed to relieve long time leader Mervyn Emerson of the lead in the opening heat to take the win, with Allen Cherry snatching second ahead of Emerson.

Mervyn made no mistake in heat two, hitting the front on lap 5 and hanging on all the way to the flag. Recently crowned Irish Champion Joel Richardson took second ahead of Cochrane after Mark Madill had been penalised for contact.

Emerson took over from Vince Campbell out front early in the final, and everyone was then treated to an excellent dice as the lead was contested by over 10 cars at some points. Richardson dragged himself right alongside Emerson but couldn't make it stick, with Madill also unable to wrestle the top spot for himself. The next man to try was World Champion Shane Murray, and in a masterclass of outside passing he was able to make the move count and race on to a deserved victory. Mervyn Emerson, Madill and Stephen Emerson followed him over the line.
