Calvin takes the Final, Final

The 2 Litre Hot Rods were in action at the last meeting of the season at Nuttscorner Oval on Saturday 30th of October. With the points titles already decided car numbers were down slightly, but there was still some great racing. Newly crowned Irish champion, Derek Martin took the honours in the opening heat, a rare star grade winner in 2010 at Nuttscorner, with Garry Campbell coming home second. It was Campbell who took the spoils in heat two despite close attention throughout the race from Feargal McNally who was trying to go around the outside, David McMenemy eventually took second spot, with McNally taking third. The final was the scene of a great ding dong battle for the lead between Bradley Dynes and Alistair Calvin. Dynes led the race away and by the mid way stage was under pressure from Calvin, who looked the quicker, once Calvin was through into the lead he looked unable to shake off Dynes who stayed with and re-took the lead, Calvin hit the front again later in the race, with Dynes once again coming back and taking the lead and the flag. Following the race Dynes was docked two places for excessive force in one of the manoeuvres, giving the win to Calvin with Gary O’Neill runner up and Dynes relegated to third.

Martin takes Irish Championship

As the season quickly draws to a close the 2.0 Hot Rods had their Irish championship on Saturday the 23rd of October at Nuttscorner Oval. The season long points campaign seen defending Champion Shane Murray on pole, joined on the front row Denver McLean. Gary Wilson and 2008 winner Glenn McDowell shared row two, with Darek Martin and Garry Campbell on row three, and further back Andy Best and Wayne Woolsey also former winners of the event. In 2009 Shane Murray took a comfortable lights to flag win, but it wasn’t to be the same this time around, Murray led the opening lap before Wilson forced his way through and into the lead on the second lap, Derek Martin also slipped through into second while Shane Murray found himself on the outside of Denver McLean dicing for third. As the lead pair started to pull away Murray had regained third. The race was only a handful of laps old when chaos in turn one brought out the yellow flags as Glenn McDowell, Denver McLean and Philip Beatty amongst others, came together. Two false starts later the race got under way, Wilson led them off with Martin tucking in behind and Murray staying with them. Murray wasn’t long in going to the outside to try and take Martin and soon had the edge as he attempted to go around the leader, as the cars went down the home straight Martin seen the opportunity to make his challenge for the lead and went to the inside of Wilson putting them three wide into turn one with Murray on the outside and losing places. Now in the lead Martin started to pull away, Wilson was comfortable in second with Garry Campbell third and Murray in fourth. All the time the man on the move was Wayne Woolsey, having started on the 11th row of the gird, he was now making his way through the top ten. In almost a repeat of his challenge for the lead Shane Murray went to the outside of Campbell to try and regain third, but this time it was Wayne Woolsey who seen the chance to go up the inside, taking both cars and the third spot. Martin took the win and the title, with Wilson second, Woolsey picked up third with Shane Murray fourth.

Moss Wins European

Collin Moss took the biggest win of his varied career when he got the better of World Champion Jason Wilks to land the European Championship at Northampton on Sunday October 17th. There was a star studded entry on hand for the showdown, including a large contingent from Northern Ireland. Wilks and Gavin Botfield shared the front row for heat one, which only just included leading lady racer Sam Holland after a last minute engine change. Not so lucky was Rick Pannell, who had to sit things out following mechanical trouble in practice. As Wilks settled into a lead he would never lose, Denver McLean spun in the midst of the pack on lap one, clouting Mark Cooper on his way round. This would leave a door flapping on the #308 car which would ultimately lead to him being withdrawn from the race. As Wilks took the first chequered flag of the day, Richard Poulter grabbed second and Holland was rewarded for her hard work with third ahead of Moss. Further back there had been a race long battle between defending champion Andy Best and Will Reed. The reds were flying early in the reverse grid heat two, with a number of cars in the wall on turn four which triggered mass retirements including Adam Hylands, Best, Jason Busby, Dan Smith and Adam Heatrick to name a few. Former double World Champion Wayne Woolsey had pole for this one, and took an easy flag to flag win ahead of Derek Martin and Chris Crane. Cooper got the better of an excellent battle with Shane Murray for fourth with Moss coming through to sixth to annexe pole spot for the final. Moss and Wilks set off in the European final side by side, and battled fiercely for the opening tours before the World Champion finally got his nose ahead. Martin was running third and still in touch, with Woolsey right with him in fourth. Try as Wilks did he couldn’t shake off Moss, and soon the #7 Tigra was looking inside for the lead yet again. Wilks seemed to be struggling to stay tight out of turn four, and after a number of attempts Moss made it stick and rounded out the final laps to take a superb title win. Wilks was a gallant runner up with young Martin well pleased with the final step of the podium. Holland got underneath Woolsey late on to nab fourth, with Wayne fifth ahead of Cooper, Crane and Murray at the end of an excellent meeting from the two litres.

Cooper Wins National!

Heat 1 As the cars formed a random grid for the first qualifying heat for the national championship the weather had shown true for a typical Wimbledon. Wet, windy and dull resulting in the track conditions being greasy and slippery! Damo Wellman in car no.8 was on pole as the green flag dropped and quickly got away to a good lead, with Tristan Jackson back racing after a few meetings away, outside pole, and ever faithful Mark Constable in third, the cars began to battle it out. As the grey Tigra of Wellman started to pull half a lap on the field, a fast Fiske in the ‘Mark Peck’ Nova had come through from 6th to begin the battle for second, leaving Cooper in 308 and Reed in 306 battling for third. Meanwhile at the back of the field World champion Jason Wilkes and Paul Wright in car 43 had come through the pack from the very last cars and were now battling for 6th! With 2 laps to go Fiske managed to find a way past Jackson and get up in to second and the chase was now on for Wellman who had pulled a good lead. A rapid Fiske managed to close the gap in the closing laps and as the chequered flag was dropped Fiske was almost alongside the number 8 car. Result: 8, 304, 306, 308, 565, 110, 43, 30 Fastest lap: Danny Fiske=17.475 Heat 2 The weather had started to ease off and with the 2 other formulas racing on a drying track, a dry line had started to appear. Heat 2 saw a reverse grid from heat one, meaning Paul Wright had the pole position, alongside the green fiesta of Tommy miller, Colin Moss in the number 7 car behind and Jason Wilkes finishing off the top four. As the heat started Samantha Holland, the only lady racer of the night, pulled off straight away quickly followed by Charles Jowers in car 31 who was spun in to a huge puddle in the infield. As the laps were ticked off Wright was still in first, followed by Moss and then Wilkes in third. As Wilkes badgered Moss for second and Moss pushed Wright for first the chequered flag came down on a great Roding display. Result: 43, 7, 110, 96, 75, 303, 308, 87, 22, 565 Fastest Lap: Kevin Randell= 15.052 Final So the final had arrived and the heaven opened once again, the track now drenched along with all the outside spectators and pit crews. On a total of points from both heats Wright had managed pole position, with Wilkes outside pole, Cooper third, Wellman fourth, Moss fifth and Fiske sixth. A broken prop meant that Will Reed in 306 was unable to take his position on the grid. As the tension mounted the green flag was waved so Wright and Wilkes raced to the first corner. With the track sheet ice from the rain, both cars tried their best to grip the corner as tight as possible, an impossible task when Mr “wet weather” Cooper is behind you, and through came Cooper underneath the pair of them. Wright taking up second and Wilkes spinning, involving Fiske, dropped them back many places. This left Moss up to third with the rest of the pack battling it out behind them. As Wright pushed to catch the 308 car the slippery conditions and ‘the master of the wet’ shone through. The 308 nova of Cooper crossing the line to become National Champion followed by Mr “Consistent” Wright in 43 and the new comer to 2 litre hot rods, Colin Moss, in third.

Bradley Dynes led them off for the opening heat with Stuart Lyness outside him and soon moving into the lead, before giving way to yellow grader Davy McMenemy. As Lyness feel back into the grips of Garath Hagan the cars came together going onto the back straight putting Lyness up the wall and making his car an obstacle for the chasing pack and was then clipped by Nigel McCauley who in turn collected Alistair Calvin driving the ex Feargal McNally 205. The carnage brought out the yellow flags. Shortly after the restart McMenemy ran wide onto the back straight allowing Mark Madill through and into the lead, where he stayed to take the win. Philip Beatty picked up second with Leaigh Nicholl third. With a few cars sidelined from heat one, fifteen cars made it back out for heat two.

Within a few more laps McMenemy was through into the lead, which he held to take the win from Adam Hylands and Leigh Nicholl. Sixteen cars made it out for the meeting final, with Donnelly leading them off, with Vince Campbell quickly slotting into second before losing out to Hagan and McMenemy. Under pressure Donnelly ran wide allowing Hagan through into the lead, McMenemy to second and Campbell into third.

Dendy Wins Aldershot Final

A fast Martin Codling got away to take the Opening Heat at Aldershot on the 12th of September. A very close call between a quick Dan Smith in car 565 and Codling. With Codling just managing to hold on to the win. Heat two saw a good start from Busby in 87, with Dan Payne in 22 hot on his heels from the off. With a grid of 17 cars, it was still an impossible task for the superstars to make it through from the back of the pack. Aldershot being a track that appears to be less and less popular with many of the 2 litre drivers. Busby took the flag, with Payne unable to find a way through. The last heat of the day was a great drive from one of our lady drivers Jemma Dendy in car 57. After leading the whole race, Dan Smith in 565 just manged to get underneath her, to snatch the win. Danny Fiske in 304 also drove a great race coming through to take fourth from the back of the grid. The final saw 22 cars line up all ready to take battle for the final trophy of the day. 175 Poulter missing from the grid, and 108 Kevin Down not making it out due to engine trouble. As the green flag dropped the pack got away to a rapid start. 57 Jemma Dendy taking an early lead, edging a quick gap from the pack. As the superstars battled it out at the back of the grid, a fast Danny fiske in 304 and Paul Wright in 43 were managing to tick off the cars. An unfortuate puncture put Fiske out of the running. After a few airy moments with cars spinning all over the place, the chequered flag was final waved, with Jemma Dendy taking the final win of the day. Report by Lucy Webster, Photos by Damian Savage

Campbell Soaks up late pressure to take action packed final

The 2 Litre Hot Rods were in action at Nuttscorner Oval on Saturday 11th of September, where torrential rain before and during the early stages of the meeting, set the scene for the night ahead. There was a 21 car grid for the opening heat, including Lightning Rod star and ex Irish Champion Andy Cochrane in the ex Wayne Woolsey Haird motorsport Tigra, and the return of Paul Wilson, a more than capable competitor who once placed third in the world final. Stuart Lyness led the cars away for the opening heat with Paul Wilson moving into second, While Adam Heatrick and Philip Beatty soon moved into third and fourth. While Lyness and Wilson pulled away Beatty kept the pressure on Heatrick as he challenged for third, as Beatty went up the inside of Heatrick coming into turn one, going for a gap which quickly disappeared, and as Heatrick turned in he was collected by Beatty, while the chasing pack went in all directions to avoid the spun 342 car. With Heatrick sitting across the track and Derek Martin stranded on the back straight, the yellow flags made their first appearance of the night. Lyness led them away again for the restart while Wilson started to slip backwards through the pack, with Gary Campbell moving up to second and Denver McLean making his way through to third. Lyness held on to take his first win in the class, with Campbell second, McLean was third on the track but docked two places for contact, promoting Shane Murray to third. As the flag dropped for heat two, the whites and yellows were slow to react the blue graders were up amongst them leaders, heat one winner Lyness and Gareth Hagan spun in the first bend, while damage to the to Bradley Dynes car left him touring round and the yellows flags came out once again. White grader Petie Donnelly led them away once again with Ed Litter, Adam Hylands and Garry Campbell giving chase. As the laps passed Eric Wakefield became the next victim of the slippery conditions and ended up stranded and facing the traffic on the entrance to the turn straight, and was soon collected by Gareth Hagan bringing out the yellow flags once again. Donnelly led from the restart and held on to take his first win in a 2 Litre Hot Rod, while Garry Campbell was second across the line, but docked two places, promoting McLean to second and Hylands to third. After two pretty chaotic heats, Bradley Dynes led the field away for the final. After a win in heat two Donnelly was the first to succumb to conditions, spinning in the first bend. For a brief moment it looked as though there was going to be a third new winner on the night before Dynes pulled off, while behind him Paul Wilson spun and was clipped by Denver McLean. Garry Campbell meanwhile had found his way to the front with Lyness second. As the laps passed Lyness had dropped back and had picked up damage, and his car had almost came to a stop as the leading pack came across him in turn one, Lyness was collected by Philip Beatty who had no where else to go, and left both cars damaged and stranded on turns one and two, bringing out the yellow flags. Garry Campbell led them away on the restart with Hylands second who had also picked up damage in the Lyness incident, and didn’t last up front for long. As the laps closed down there was a good scrap amongst the top five, with Glenn McDowell challenging for the lead while Shane Murray challenging him, and Andy Best trying to go around the outside, and Gary Wilson not too far away. As the cars went onto the last lap more drama unfolded as backmarker Samuel Murphy driving Leigh Nicholls car had spun and was broadside across the track, somehow everyone managed to avoid him, Campbell held on to take the win with McDowell second, Murray just held off Andy Best to take third, with Gary Wilson fifth.

Heat One: 17 Stuart Lyness, 933, 70, 991, 903, 982, 54, 995, 968, 988.

O'Neill's Nuttscorner Double

At Nuttscorner oval on Saturday 4th of September yellow grader Gary O’Neill took a heat and final double. Gareth Hagan led off the eighteen car field in heat one, with Nigel McCauley diving into the lead from the outside of the front row, Hagan slotted into second while further down the fieldAdam Heatrick spun from the front row of the reds sending cars either side of him in turn one, fortunately with no one collecting him. Up front McCauley took the win with Hagan second and Gary O’Neill third. A rain shower made the second heat a slippery affair. Gary O’Neill moved into the lead from the off with McCauley lying in second and Hagan third in the early stages. McCauley dropped out moving Hagan up to second who was under pressure from Gary Wilson who was trying to go around the outside of him, as well as Garry Campbell behind Hagan and Andy Best trying to go around Campbell. As they cars went onto the last lap Campbell went for a gap up the inside of Hagan and the cars tangled allowing Wilson and Best to move through. Gary O’Neill took a comfortable win with Andy Best taking second and Gary Wilson third. By final time the rain had stopped and there was now a dry inside line on the track, but it was still damp off line. Vince Campbell and Gareth Hagan led the cars off, but didn’t lead for long as Gary O’Neill went round the outside of both cars on the back straight on the opening lap. O’Neill and Hagen pulled out the length of a straight in the opening laps with Gary Wilson giving chase in third, and chase them down he did. When the lap boards came out Wilson was right up with the lead pair and putting pressure on Hagan. With only a few laps to go Hagan pulled out with what looked to be a mechanical problem handing second to Wilson, but it was too late to allow Wilson to put any sort of pressure on O’Neill who took his second win of the night. Derek Martin picked up third, with Denver McLean fourth after a race long battle with Garry Campbell who was fifth.

Fiske takes Ipswich Final

With the start delayed by fifteen minutes in order to accommodate a mega Bank Holiday all three formulas duly made the wait worthwhile with Diss driver Danny Fiske in particularly scintillating form. It was three-abreast racing from the word go in the 2.0 Hot Rods as Kevin Down charged off for the first of back-to-back wins. Jenna Denby was in an entertainingly feisty mood all afternoon and netted a fine second place in heat one. Having secured sixth in race one Fiske was again looking determined in the second heat with a blanket finish very nearly securing him second, as it was he was fourth by inches. Down was given a blue grade start for the final and the extra handicap eventually proved too much. Dan Payne was in the top three all afternoon and took it up as Fiske got inside third placed O’Leary with just three and a half laps to go and Payne still some way ahead. Fiske was right behind him going in to the last lap and judged it perfectly to get up on the outside on the final two bends to snatch it in classic style by the narrowest of margins.

Litter Cleans up at Ballymena

The Ulster 2.0 Hot Rods contested Round 2 of their LJN DeSigns/Hoosier Tires Series at Ballymena Raceway on Friday 27th August., and it was Ed Litter who dominated with a heat and final brace. Gary O’Neill took a welcome victory in the opening encounter with Litter in second in a yellow grade lock-out. Glen Hetherington and Garry Campbell were next up, leading the challenge from the blue grade. Litter would then go one better in the second heat, heading home series sponsor Leigh Nicholl and O’Neill in this one which was brought to a premature finish with Irish Champion Shane Murray in the home straight wall after some shenanigans in the main pack. The final was lined up with the top points scorer from the heats on pole, and this honour fell to Litter with O’Neill alongside. Rapid blue tops Hetherington and Nicholl were now much closer to the front and an interesting battle lay ahead. Litter immediately turned his pole spot into the early lead, with his Fiesta soon fending off Hetherington and current form man Gary Wilson. The trio circulated as one for the majority of the race, with Litter shown the occasional blue flag but Hetherington unable to go the long way around. Wilson was the man to give it a go though, and his recent confidence saw him work his way alongside Hetherington to take second, and then take to the outside of Litter for the lead. Alas the laps ran out for Gary, with Litter just holding on to complete his double in a blanket finish. Hetherington came home third from Campbell, O’Neill and Adam Heatrick.

McDowell tried the outside line to take the lead in the opening laps, before finding half a gap on the inside, the cars touched going in to turn one, and both lost time as they locked together around the bend, allowing David McMenemy and Adam Heatrick through into the top two places, where they would finish. Philip Beatty got passed Martin for third late on, with Martin then docked two places allowing Denver McLean and Adam Hylands to move up to fourth and fifth. The second heat was the reverse of heat one with Glenn Hetherington leading the pack away from the outside of row one, the gap on the inside was quickly filled with Vince Campbell from row two, who moved into an early lead. Hetherington regained the lead and went on to take the win, with Gary Wilson second, Leigh Nicholl third and Denver McLean fourth. A pre-race downpour provided some slippery conditions for the final. The eighteen car grid was led off by Denver McLean and Adam Heatrick on row one with Wilson and Hetherington on row two. McLean got the better start and Wilson quickly moved into second before a row three starter McMenemy ended up spun and then broadside across the back straight, bringing out the red flags. On the restart McLean once again got the jump on Heatrick, and Wilson quickly moved through into second with Hetherington and Davy Clarke in hot pursuit. Wilson seemed much more comfortable in the conditions and moved through into the lead, with Clarke following him through past McLean and up to second. As the race went on Wilson continued to edge out his lead and took a comfortable victory, while McLean got back passed Clarke to claim second, with Clarke third with Ed Litter picking up fourth and Hetherington fifth.
