Murray Masterclass Retains World Title

Shane Murray successfully defended his World Title at Tullyroan Oval’s Speedweekend on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of July, coming out top of a very wet final.
Saturday night’s action seen a 2/3rds format for the qualifying heats. Mark Madill took the opening heat win while all eyes were on a battle further down the field as Adam Heatrick battled with Adam Hylands and Wayne Woolsey.
The second heat and the second local winner of the night was Stephen Emerson, he took advantage of a good grid spot to claim the win.
A shower ahead of the third heat meant some slippery but drying conditions and provided the platform for the first visiting win of the weekend as Chris Crane took the flag.
With the stage set for Sunday afternoon’s final the heavens opened and what had started off a nice sunny meeting had quickly become somewhat of a very wet one, just in time for the World Championship itself. Shane Murray had claimed pole from the heats with Emerson alongside, Philip Beatty and Mark Madill lined up on row two with Jowers and Chris Crane on an all English row three, Heatrick and Alexander on row four completing the first group, while Wayne Woolsey was joined by Stuart Cochrane on the first row of the second group with Kerr Paterson and Adam Hylands behind that.
Murray was straight into the lead with Emerson slotting in behind hime with Philip Beatty in third.
There was early drama as Wayne Woolsey and Adam Heatrick made contact on the back straight sending Heatrick a spin and into the wall, Woolsey and Jowers then got tangled up as Hylands went for a gap on the exit of the same bend. Jowers and Woolsey were stranded on the outside of the bend bringing out the yellows, Hylands had got through but was dropping down the order rapidly suggesting he’d picked up damage in the process.
On the Restart Murray led them away with backmarker Vince Campbell between himself and Emerson with Beatty and Madill behind.
On the restart Campbell moved aside letting the leader through, with Murray pulling away from the off. The battler for second was heating up as Beatty pushed Emerson wide, sending Beatty into second and Emerson onto the outside and down the order. For the mid section of the race the top three remained settled with Murray increasing his lead lap after lap, Beatty running in second and Madill third while Chris Crane and Emerson completed the group battling for second.
In the closing laps Crane was on a charge, taking the third place spot from Madill with a few laps to go and going on to pass Beatty in the closing laps.
Murray went on to take a comfortable win by around three-quarters of a lap with Chris Crane and Philip Beatty second and third as they crossed the line, but Beatty and Crane were both docked for contact during the race promoting Madill to second and Emerson to third.

In the Support race there was a win for Stuart Cochrane.

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.

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.

Shane Murray is National Champion

The qualifying heats for the National Championship took place on the Saturday of the Ipswich Spedeweekend. In dry conditions Adam Hylands took Heat 1 from Mark Paffey and Dale Atkins. Heat 2 was won by Paul Wright from Chris Crane and Dan Smith.
After the points were added up, Mark Paffey took pole position for the National Championship which took place on the Sunday. On a wet track Mark led for the first few laps, then Dale Atkins took over, meanwhile Shane Murray was making progress but earned a black cross for knocking another driver out wide. Paul Wright was also on the move, Shane took over the lead but Paul looked the faster driver. In the closing laps Paul tried the outside line several times but could not make it stick. At the final corner Paul managed to get the inside line and they crossed the line side by side. They had treated the crowd to some excellent racing, the cameras showed that Shane crossed the line first and after a stewards enquiry they decided that he could keep the win. Dale Atkins was third with Chris Crane in fourth.


Heat 1: 54 Adam Hylands,60,88,31,70,342,976,280,11,979
Heat 2: 43 Paul Wright,75,565,110,993,303,935,3,745,30

Murray wins TRM Round 2

World Champion Shane Murray won the final in the second round of the Tullymore Road Motors Series for the 2 Litres at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday 22nd of June as the class made their final appearance there ahead of the World Final at the end of July.
Adam Hylands set out his stall early on by taking the opening heat win of the day from a graded start, before Joel Richardson took the win in an action packed heat two.
Hylands and Richardson shared the front row of the grid, but it wasn’t long before it was Hylands and Murray out in front. Mid race Richardson had dropped back and ended up spun on the start of the start and finish straight and upon rejoining he drove across the front of Hylands who’d been leading, costing Hylands time and allowing Murray up the inside. That left the pair to battle for the lead for the remainder of the race with Murray holding on to take the win with Hylands second and Mark Madill picking up third.


TRM Tullymore Road Motors Challenge Series Round 2
Heat 1: 54 Adam Hylands, 914, 70, 976, 908, 935, 906, 993, 975, 931.
Heat 2: 976 Joel Richardson, 54, 931, 914, 950, 918, 991, 70, 908, 975.
Final: 70 Shane Murray, 54 Adam Hylands, 931 Mark Madill, 935, 914, 908, 906, 924, 991, 918.

Bradley Dynes takes Hoosier Round 8

Round 8 of the Hoosier Racing Tire Series took place at a very hot and sunny Aldershot on Sunday 08/06/14.
Heat 1 was lead from the start by Brett Collison until in the last few laps Bradley Dynes bashed his way through to the lead. Quite rightly Bradley was docked 2 places and Brett took the win. Brett lead Heat 2 until a yellow flag was needed to clear up a crash which included John Payne and Sam Holland. At the restart Brett's car developed a misfire allowing Bradley Dynes to take over the lead and the win.
Bradley Dynes took over the lead in the final and went on to take the win from Scott Morgan and Sean O'Leary.
