Easter Sunday 31st March 2013

Report by John Woolsey

Nutts Corner  new season opener got off to a bang with the Nuttshaker National Bangers  Championship  a real thriller on Easter Sunday. With a good mix of North and South drivers there was plenty of heavy hits from both sides although it was all in good sport. In the opening heat Portadown's Willie Ogibly  emerged the winner in a spectacular race with not to many of the competitors managing to finish. Marty McKiernan was the only other finisher in this one. With the locals full of confidence for the second heat Steven Bolton from Ballymoney avoided the carnage to sneak out into the lead and somehow escaped all attempts from the opposition to fence him he and made it to the chequered flag. Dublin's favourite driver Mark Hughes came home in second ahead of McKiernan, Ogibly and Michael Smith. Wrecked cars were miraculously repaired for the big Nuttshaker Championship final. As the race progressed the favourites from the heat and especially the local men came in for some real bashings and Noel Anderson, Adrian McKinstry, Ogibly and Lee Carr were all planted around the track in many pieces. Alan O'Neill came storming through after all the early crashes and managed a clear run to the winning post. Keith Carey another driver not to have show up in the heats left it to the final to battle through to claim the runner up position. Keith McMahon (Fatboy )always in the mix was the only other finisher in third. O'Neill also claimed the Demolition Derby win being the only driver left running at the finish.  Moy's Lee Carr was awarded the best turned out banger of the day and Aaron Kelly went home with the Entertainer  of the day award.

The Saloon Stock Cars had their first outing of the season and many drivers had new and refurbished cars. Jason Smyth debuted his new car as did Matt Stirling while Ryan Wright held back with his new mount to a later date. Returnee Richard Stewart didn't manage to get ready in time and Aghadowey Banger Champion James Serplus also is on hold for a few weeks. Irish Champion Wright battled through from the back to clinch the win over Ross Houston and Steven Boyd . In heat two Houston turned up the gas to win ahead of Boyd and Wright. In the final it was going to be a showdown between Wright and Houston. The McIvor brothers Kieran and Anthony in their new refurbished cars were soon fading down the pack as Houston was first through the pack and overhauling early leader Boyd to sail out in front. Wright tried all he knew to make inroads on the leaders but the Scarva man Boyd was no push over and stayed the distance to claim runner up spot Houston was the top man and lifted the spoils in this one. Wright finish third and would have dreamed of what might have been if he'd debuted his new mount. A McIvor was fourth ahead of K McIvor, Stirling and Smyth.

Ryan Stewart was in top form in the 1300Stock Cars completing a double with a heat and final win. Ryan Patton drew first blood in the opening heat  taking advantage of his low grade start. Thomas Megarry  sporting his new number seven in the ex Wayne Hewitt car came in second and Robbie Browne finished third. Irish Champion Dan Feeney was runner up to Stewart in the second heat with Patton falling down into third. In the final Patton was the early leader but was soon overhauled by Stewart who went into a commanding lead. Feeney eventually secured second while Calvin Blake had a great drive in his first outing in the class having moved up from the Juniors managed a super third. Megarry, Patton and Browne were the only other finishers.

The new Speed Stocks made their debut at the Corner  with a small entry for this meeting although they did produce three different winners. James Goldie the current Super 1600's Irish Champion opened his account with a win in heat one over  the current Group 2 Lightning Rod Irish Champion Curtis Greer the runner up. Jonny Kirk was next past the winning post in third. Kirk soon got to grips with race two and went on for his first win in the class ahead of Goldie and Greer. Billy Finnegan a top Pro Stock driver made a late arrival but soon settled into the groove in the final and made his mark in the race with a hard fought battle with Goldie before going on to win the first final in the new class. Kirk proved he was no push over and climbed the ladder of success for the runner up spot ahead of the favourite Goldie. Greer followed over the line in fourth . With almost thirty drivers registered the numbers should increase rapidly with plenty of good action in store for the future.
