Heat 1
15 Hot Rods for the first race which is led most of the way by lone white grader 338 John Payne, 11 Alex Crane found a way past on the inside with 5 laps to run, 338 came back at Crane causing both of them to get out of shape on the pit bend, but both survived and Crane takes it.

Heat 2
Another driver collecting his first win this time in the Hot Rods is 338 John Payne in only his fourth meeting and his first visit to Yarmouth!

A dramatic finish to the Final, 338 looked set to take his second win but as the laps went by 543 Tommy Miller was gaining on him and by the time the last lap board came out 543 was close enough to lodge a challenge for the lead. Coming out of the pit turn 543 got up the inside however 338 forced the pair of them onto the infield losing a lot of ground and handing the win to Charlie Jowers!

McArdle Wins at Tullyroan

Local novice driver Chris McArdle was the toast of Tullyroan Oval on Sunday, when he steered his Vauxhall Corsa to victory in the 2.0 Hot Rods Final. It was his first ever victory in the formula, and he celebrated in style. Other final winners at the meeting, sponsored by JMC Mechanical and Construction Ltd, were Shane McMillan, Ben McKee and Steven Reynolds.

There was a welcome new winner on victory lane in the 2.0 Hot Rods, as Brocagh racer Chris McArdle led the final from start to finish. From the novice white grade, he quickly settled into the early lead, with heat two winner Alastair Calvin in hot pursuit. The star drivers were embroiled in their own battle further back in the field, with British and European Champion Shane Murray, Adam Hylands, Wayne Woolsey and Gary Wilson all exchanging paint and places in the main pack.

Try as he might, Calvin couldn’t quite get on terms with McArdle, who came home for a very popular win indeed. Calvin held on for second with Moy’s Petie Donnelly third ahead of Portadown ace Mark Madill.

Earlier Woolsey inherited the win in the first heat after Murray was adjudged to have jumped a restart by the race officials, whilst Calvin had relieved McArdle of the lead late on to take the heat two honours.

Heat One: 50 Wayne Woolsey, 54, 70, 999, 13, 902, 926, 982, 931, 935.

Pannell wins at Arlington

Heat 1
13 starters for the opener after 475 had problems in practice. 338 led the early stages, then 77 who left a gap with a lap and a half to go, 537 dived in and spun him out and was docked 2 as was 310 for spinning out 38 in the new Toyota, 146 Scott Morgan assumes the win after crossing the line in 3rd!

Heat 2
A controversial heat 2 with 475 Paul Kaynes led but 77 takes over, 8 caught 77 and as he tries to pass 77 spins out on the pit bend causing chaos! 8 is not docked initially and takes the win, with the steward investigating the incident, and after video review 8 is disqualified handing the win to 65 Mark Willis. Spare a thought for 77 who has been spun out in both races.

The controversy doesn't stop for the 2.0 Hot Rods Final - 475 led then yellows out for 38 in wall and 475 gets the black flag for overtaking the Pace Car. 77 leads now. 8 nearly spins 310 which may have caught out 65 who takes in 8 on the Hailsham turn causing a stoppage. 39 Rick Pannell catches and passes 77 from the restart, Owen's back axle fell out in a shower of sparks and he ended up parked by pit gate bringing the reds and chequered out as it was the final lap. Some great entertainment from the Hot Rods tonight but there will certainly be some hafty repair bills on the way.

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.
