Murray Takes European at Tullyroan

Shane Murray added the European Championship title to his list of honours during the first Speedweekend at Tullyroan Oval.

A thirty six car field assembled for the weekend of action at the UK’s newest venue including visiting drivers Mark Willis, Charlie Jowers, Chris Crane, Damon Wellman and World Champion Will Reed.

The Saturday night qualifying heats seen the cars race in a two from three format to book their place on the grid for the European Championship.

The opening heat went to Andrew Murray who steered home his Vauhall Tigra ahead of Adam Hylands and National Hot Rod World Champion Glenn Bell.

Heat two seen the only visiting driver win of the weekend in the 2 Litre’s as Damon Wellman took the honours, leading home Shane Murray, Adam Heatrick and defending European Champion Denver McLean.

The third and final heat was one of the races of the weekend as Mark Madill hit the front of the field with Davy Potter having the drive of his life in second place while several of the top drivers jostled for position behind him, Charlie Jowers eventually took third place.

With the qualifying heats over it was Shane Murray who took pole position for the European Championship final, with a 3 way tie for second place between Damon Wellman, Andrew Murray and Denver McLean. A pre race draw gave Andrew Murray the outside of the front row with McLean inside row two and Wellman alongside, Adam Hylands and Davy Potter occupied row three with Mark Madill and Adam Heatrick completing the front group.

The European race was action packed from the start as McLean dived up the inside of Andrew Murray into turn one followed by Hylands and Wellman got squeezed out wide and soon retired, another early faller was Will Reed who looked to have scrubbed the wall and had damaged the outside front wheel. Neil Davidson was an early spinner and yellows where soon called upon. Murray once again led away on the restart and quickly started to break away from McLean and Hylands as they battled for second. It wasn’t long before the second stoppage when Chris Crane and Adam Heatrick came together on the start finish straight, leaving Heatrick stranded and Crane facing the traffic. The third caution soon followed when Mark Willis ended up spun and stranded on the kerb on the inside of turns three and four after just a few laps of racing. Shane Murray led once again on the restart with McLean still in second, Hylands third, Andrew Murray fourth and Davy Potter still holding on to fifth. Shane Murray once again pulled away on the restart but it was Hylands who was making moves on McLean eventually squeezing up the inside to take second in turn three which also allowed Andrew Murray up into third. In the coming laps Hylands started reeling in the number seventy machine as they started coming through traffic. The lead pair had a lucky escape when Mark Willis, Petie Donnelly and Lee McCracken came together on front of them on the back straight and they squeezed through while Andrew Murray and Denver McLean got forced to the grass as the tangled cars brought out the fourth and final caution. The restart with eight laps to go gave Shane Murray clear track ahead again, but Hylands wasn’t for giving up and stayed Murray right through to the flag and was just unable to mount a significant challenge on leader, as Shane Murray added the European title to the British, National and Irish Open titles he has already won. Andrew Murray came home in third with Denver McLean fourth, Philip Beatty fifth and Davy Potter in sixth.

The meeting was rounded out with two support races with Philip Beatty taking the win in the Dash4Cash and Feargal McNally took the final 2 Litre race of the weekend in the Tullyroan Oval Grand Prix.

Beatty wins at Tullyroan

With the European Championship for the 2.0 Hot Rods set for Tullyroan next weekend, things got off to the worst possible start with a multiple car incident on turn one, lap one, of the first heat which left a number of cars damaged. At the resumption, Sean Dynes from Dungannon slipped ahead and took the win from Thomas Dilly and Derek Martin.
British Champion Shane Murray, who had earlier received a fantastic welcome as he paraded the trophy he won in Ipswich last weekend, kept up his good form with a text book win in heat two from the red grade, relieving Dynes of the lead to take the chequered flag. Dynes continued his good afternoon with second ahead of Philip Beatty, who had hastily repaired his car after the first heat shunt.
Beatty had the bit between his teeth in the final, and laid down a marker ahead of next week’s big meeting with a great win, holding off Adam Hylands and Murray at the flag.
