Emerson Brothers engage in heated battle

A healthy field of 2.0 Hot Rods included a debut for usual Stock Rod star Ben McCully in the ex-Gary Wilson Corsa, and it was European, British and Irish Champion Adam Hylands who stormed through from the star grade to take the opening victory of the day over Stephen Emerson and Stuart Cochrane.

Cochrane then inherited the win in heat two, after on the road victor Sean Dynes was docked two places for contact during the race. Mervyn Emerson inherited second ahead the unfortunate Dynes.

Mervyn Emerson quickly demoted Davy Potter to take up the running in the final, before the star men began to reel him in. Within the final stages of proceedings they were right with him , led by his brother Stephen. Stephen quickly hit the difficult outside line looking for the pass, with Mark Madill, Hylands, Cochrane and Joel Richardson all in close proximity too. Mervyn was under immense pressure in what was becoming a sensational finish, and he just managed to hold his brother off by inches as the chequered flag fell. Madill was well pleased in third on his return following a huge crash last month, with Hylands and Richardson next up as the top six crossed the line almost as one.

An excellent days racing at Tullyroan, where racing rarely disappoints. The next meeting is on the 4th of October


Heat One: 54 Adam Hylands, 923, 979, 70, 931, 976, 924, 935, 975, 984.
Heat Two: 979 Stuart Cochrane, 924, 984, 70, 54, 923, 976, 935, 983, 975.
Final: 924 Mervyn Emerson, 923 Stephen Emerson, 931 Mark Madill, 54, 976, 979, 70, 935, 975, 983.

Change of Webmaster at 2litrehotrod.com

In 2009 I took on the role of webmaster for 2litrehotrod.com full of big ideas that I’ve never really been able to make happen.

As the class has expanded in recent years it has become harder and harder to stay on top of the site as well as maintain the other sites and activities that I’m involved in and at times there has been items sitting in my inbox to be actioned for weeks before making it to the website.
Even though the site probably now has more contributors than ever my own contribution to it has been slipping and this has led me to the conclusion that it’s better for the site and ultimately the class if it was in better hands.
With immediate effect Ed Fahey will take over the day to day running of the website, hopefully with the continued support of those who have supported me.

Ed has been a regular at DMC tracks this season and returns to the ovals with years of experience photoing circuit racing around the globe. Ed has been keen contributor to 2litrehotrod.com and nationalhotrod.com in recent months and I’m sure will lead the site in the right direction.
Before signing off I’d like to thank everyone who has supported the site in recent years, contributors, readers, promoters and of course the drivers who have it on their cars.

Emerson Lands First 2 Litre Title

As part of the DMC September Speedweekend the 2 Litre Hot Rods raced for their Irish Open Championship on Saturday night at Aghadowey Oval.
Stephen Emerson landed his first title in the 2 Litres after he took pole for the final and drove a flawless race to take the win. Earlier in the evening Wayne Woolsey had won the opening race and Joel Richardson had won heat two, but it was Emerson and Shane Murray’s results that put them on the front row for the final. Emerson took a lights to flag but most eyes were on Adam Hylands as he made his way through the pack from a lowly qualifying position following a spin in heat one. Hylands finished second on the track but had made contact with Shane Murray on his way to taking second, spinning the world champion and gaining Hylands a black cross and a two place docking which promoted Wayne Woolsey to second and Joel Richardson to third.

Dan Smith takes Southern Championship

Dan Smith won the Southern Championship from pole at a dry Arlington on 03/09/14. The crowd was denied a great battle between Charlie Jowers and Dan as a backmarking Wilf Bridges got in the way in the final, with Charlie ending up hitting the armco and then retiring to continue his bad luck from Heat 2. Sean O'Leary took a well deserved second place and with his good results from the heats has extended his lead in the Hoosier Racing Tires Series. Lewis Shelley took third with a fine drive.
The racing was much cleaner than the previous meeting at Arlington, no doubt helped by Deane taking the drivers' briefing.
Heat 1 was won by Chris Crane. Mark Paffey was an early retirement with his car smoking badly.
Heat 2 had an early stoppage after John Payne was put in the wall with Dan Bennett being excluded as the cause. Charlie Jowers got by Rick Pannell on the exit of the scoreboard bend to take the lead in an optimistic move and received a harsh black flag for his efforts. Charlie took the flag but was docked two places, which no doubt cost him pole for the big race. Luke Stonehouse inherited the win.


Heat 1: 75 Chris Crane,565,3,745,338,310,303,29,31,48
