Murray is the man at Northampton

Shane Murray won the British Championship at Northampton on Saturday 8th of October as the 2 Litre’s got their sole outing at Northampton this season.

Andy Collins led the field away for the opening heat with Dale Atkins quickly moving through and into the lead. Atkins led the remainder of the race and took the win with Colin Moss coming through to second, Richard Poulter third and Shane Murray fourth.

In the second heat it was Chris Crane who led the early stages, before Paul Wright took to the front. Wright went on to take the win with Crane finishing second, with ex World Champion Jason Wilks ahead of current World Champion Will Reed in fourth and Shane Murray in fifth.

Shane Murray’s fourth and fifth spots in the heats had done enough to put him on pole in the final, with Will Reed joining him on the front row, with row 2 occupied by Moss and Atkins with Wright and Danny Fiske on Row 3. Murray took the lead from the off with Moss getting in behind him and moving into second and Reed slotting into third. Reed soon became the first lead driver out of the race, as he coasted to the outside of turn one in the opening laps, promoting Atkins to third. The battle for the lead settled down for the middle section of the race, with Moss always looking like he was biding his time behind Murray. Atkins became the next lead driver to fall by the wayside as he came together with backmarker Bradley Dynes, sustaining damage in the collision. Wright moved up into third with Fiske hot on his heels. As the race entered the closing stages Lewis Shelley was in all shapes as the leaders came onto the home straight, Murray went to the inside of the action with Moss going to the outside, both cars managed to stay out of trouble, but Murray had increased his lead. Murray went on to take the win and his second Championship on the mainland this season, with Moss runner up and Fiske passed Wright in the closing laps to take third.

Results

Heat 1 – 88 (Dale Atkins), 7, 175, 70, 304, 306, 920, 54(x2), 537, 997
Heat 2 – 43 (Paul Wright), 75, 110, 306, 70, 96, 997, 54, 537, 7

Nicholl Takes Ballymena Track Championship

Leigh Nicholl won the Ballymena Track Championship on Friday 30th of September.
While parts of the UK are experiencing an Indian Summer, Ballymena experienced one of the wettest meetings of the season.
Nicholl took the win in heat one after Wayne McLure had led for the opening part of the race. Heat two went to Adam Hylands with Mark Madill coming through to second in the closing stages.
Ten cars lined up for the final with Nicholl on pole and Madill alongside with Hylands and Gary Wilson on row two.
On the first start Nicholl got out of shape coming out of the last bend before the flag and was spun by Hylands, brining out the reds and causing a restart. The second attempt to start the race only went one bend further with Gary Wilson and Hylands clashing on the home straight resulting in wilson spinning onto the infield, over the wet grass and collecting Hylands and McLure into turn one.
With the field reduced Nicholl led the race from light to flag with Wilson and Philip Beatty battling for second throughout the race with Wilson just holding on to take it at the flag.

Harper Wins At Nuttscorner

Reigning Stock Rod British Champion Raymond Harper took his first final win in the 2 Litre Hot Rods, at Nuttscorner Oval on Sunday 25th of September.
The first race took place in wet conditions and it was no surprise that it was the rain master himself Andrew Murray who came through to take the win, with Wayne Woolsey second and Mark Madill third.
By the time heat two came around it had stopped raining and the track was starting to dry out, or at least didn’t have as much lying water on it as it had in heat one. Vince Campbell came through to take the honours with Davy Potter runner up and Sean Dynes in third.
Torrential rain between heat two and the final had left parts of the track flooded for the final. As the rain continued a lot of cars pulled out in the early stages of the race, while those remaining slipped and slided around the oval. Davy Potter led in the early stages before ending up in the wall on the exit of turn two, bringing out the yellow flags. Adam Hylands lined up at the front for the restart, but was then removed and disqualified for having made up places under the yellow flags, this gave the lead to Raymond Harper, ahead of Andrew Murray. The top two didn’t change for the remainder of the race and the best of the action came in the battle for third where Derek Martin eventually got the better of Adam Heatrick. With 5 laps to go the race was then stopped as conditions became too dangerous to continue, with only seven of the eighteen starters taking the flag.

Results

Heat One: 997 Andrew Murray, 50, 931, 54, 984, 70, 975, 920, 342, 926.
Heat Two: 983 Vince Campbell, 975, 984, 957, 50, 49, 931, 997, 921, 54.
Final: 96 Raymond Harper, 997, 920, 342, 70, 941, 926.

Crawford Takes Nuttscorner Final

The 2.0 Hot Rods coped admirably with some horrendous conditions at Nuttscorner Oval on Saturday 17th of September, said by many to be the worst we’ve raced in at Nuttscorner in quite some time. Andy Cochrane soon moved ahead on the opening race to win handsomely from Lee McCracken and Adam Hylands. Cochrane then made it two in a row when he was gifted the heat two win after long time leader Gary O’Neill spun it all away whilst well ahead. Wayne Woolsey and Denver McLean followed Cochrane over the line, after Derek Martin was dropped two places for contact. Andy was therefore automatically upgraded to blue roof for the final, and it was Vince Campbell who set the early pace in what was his first race of the night. O’Neill soon reeled him in, before moving ahead only for the two to clash and gift Mervyn Crawford the lead. Crawford, better known these days as the NHRPA Scrutineer in Northern Ireland, came home for a fine victory indeed, from Martin and Cochrane who inherited second and third after both Campbell and Woolsey had been docked.

Results

Heat One: 979 Andy Cochrane, 921, 54, 975, 925, 903, 50, 935, 70, 920.
Heat Two: 979 Andy Cochrane, 50, 903, 920, 975, 54, 957, 925, 70, 49.
Final: 957 Mervyn Crawford, 920, 979, 983, 50, 935, 54, 342, 70, 96.

Irish Open goes to McLean

Following the events of the above race which took place on Sunday September 4th, the original result was officially protested by one of the drivers involved. Last Saturday, September 10th, the protest was heard by a committee comprising of three independent drivers, who are the current points leaders in the three senior non-contact formulae at Nuttscorner Oval. The committee was chaired by Nuttscorner Oval promoter Davy McCall.

The committee heard evidence from race officials working on the day, and submissions from both drivers involved. The committee then decided that the fairest outcome would be to re-run the race. This outcome was appealed by the other party concerned, and at this stage Nuttscorner Oval sought advice from the governing body in England. They however stated that re-running the race was not a feasible outcome to the hearing.

The events were then referred back to the original committee, who then found unanimously that the result of the race should stand as the cars crossed the line on the day. 903 Denver McLean is therefore declared 2011 Irish Open Champion. The outcome has been accepted by both drivers concerned, and the matter is now closed.

The second of two days action in Northern Ireland, as the 2 Litre's contested their Irish Open Championship, for the first time since 2004, when Andrew Murray took the title.

Mark Madill drew pole for the opening 22 car heat for the Irish Open Championship, and led the race from lights to flag, Denver McLean took second with Wayne Woolsey third.
Andrew Murray took the honours in the second heat, which had been led off by Philip Beatty who was spun early on with Gary Wilson runner up and Adam Heatrick third.
With the points from the heats added it, Andrew Murray took pole for the final with Denver McLean alongside. McLean got the better start taking the lead while pre race favourite Andrew Murray spinning on the first lap and rejoining at the back of the field, this moved Madill up to second for the opening stages of the race before Shane Murray got through to chase down the leader. In the closing laps Shane Murray was putting pressure on McLean and had a few attempts to drive around the outside of the European champion. McLean held off the challenge to win the Irish Open with Shane Murray second and Derek Martin third, sole English visitor Jason Kew took fifth with Andrew Murray eventually battling his way back to a sixth, with what was probably the drive of the day.
Following the race an appeal has been lodged by a driver, and the result has been suspended.

Martin is the Master at Ballymena

There was a decent turnout of cars at Ballymena Raceway on Saturday 3rd of September for the 2 Litre Hot Rod UK Masters. Nineteen cars took the green flag for the opener, with Garry Campbell and Wayne Woolsey on the front row of a closed grid format. Woolsey stayed with Campbell throughout the race and made several attempts to pass, but had to settle for second as they took the flag.
With the grids reversed for the second race it was Caleb Howard who started on pole, but the action came from the back of the field as Campbell, Woolsey and Bradley Dynes came together on the back straight taking the first two in heat one out of heat two and causing a stoppage. Howard led them away again with Philip Beatty running second, but it was only a few laps on when Gary O’Neill ended up spun and sitting broadside on the home straight, bringing the yellows out for a second time. Howard held on to take the flag, but was then docked 2 places for jumping a start, awarding the win to Beatty and promoting Shane Murray to second.
Shane Murray took pole for the title race, sharing the front row with Derek Martin, with only twelve cars remaining to start the final. The field was soon depleted even more when Howard and Heatrick came together as the cars crossed the line leaving Howard stranded on the home straight and Heatrick out. On the restart Martin and David McMenemy got past Murray in the opening laps and Martin pulled away. It wasn’t until late in the race that Murray regained second, but was unable to do anything about Martin up front. Derek Martin took the win with Shane Murray second and David McMenemy third. The drama wasn’t finished though as Murray first went off the speak to the stewards and then refused to take part in the trophy presentation and was excluded from the result, promoting McMenemy to second and Beatty to third.

Results

UK Masters
Heat 1 – 933 Garry Campbell, 50, 342, 995, 920, 918, 982, 70
