Blair won’t share!!

Gary Blair’s commanding run in the f2’s continues as the Antrim man recorded another two victories in the Brisca f2’s. As the 14 cars took to the track for the opening heat of the evening rain showers were threatening to dampen proceedings. Trevor Moore was an early casualty, spinning out on the airport bend. Keith McAreavey set the early pace with star men Gavin Fegan and Christopher Kincaid on the move from the back of the field. This pair soon passed McAreavey with Fegan going all the way to take the flag from Kincaid. Come heat 2 the continuing light rain had made its mark and the drivers were met with a slippery track. Mark Rainey led them away with McAreavey again showing well in second. Heat 1 winner Fegan was flying through the pack when suddenly his engine let go in a cloud of smoke spilling oil onto the already damp track, this left the rest of the field fighting for traction. Blair wasn’t bothered by the challenge and went on to take the win from Kincaid and McAreavey. In the meeting final yellow grader Ronald Scott got of to a blistering start building up a healthy lead, Blair was also pushing hard while behind him the star graders Craig McConnell, Fegan, Conor Hughes, Ryan McCrory and Kincaid were engaged in a heavy battle for the places. Hughes managed to break free from that encounter and set of in search of the leaders. As every lap passed Blair was closing the gap on the leader Scott, with 6 laps to run Blair made his move on Scott and by this time the fast looking Hughes was on his tail. Just as Hughes attempted to pass Blair for the top spot his car suffered major engine problems forcing him to retire.  Blair ticked of the remaining laps to pick up his second consecutive final win, Moore finished runner up in what was a very steady drive from the blue grade, early leader Scott held on for third which also secured him the reward of a trophy for being the first white or yellow roof across the finish line.

Rainman Harper

The cream of the local Stock Rod fraternity gathered to do battle for their 2013 King of Nutts Corner title. Those present included World champion Chris Gordon, Irish champion Stevie McNeice, ex British champion Raymond Harper and one time King of Nutts Corner title holder Gary Butler all the way fromDublin. Johnny McMillan was the early leader in the first qualifier. Johnny Cardwell, Steven McKane and Ben McCully were soon on the tail of McMillan, trying all they knew to find a way past. As the lap boards appeared McMillan was under pressure from Cardwell eventually getting out of shape on the final lap allowing Cardwell and the pack to move through. Cardwell recorded the win from McKane and McCully. In heat 2 Cardwell glanced the wall on the exit of the airport bend in the early stages, taking the entire blue grade with him in the process. This allowed the star grade men a free run to chase down the leader McMillan who had built up a nice lead. Antrim man Stephen McCready looked very fast in second with Harper showing well in third. McCready went on to win from Harper and McMillan. As the points were counted up for the title decider it was Harper and McCready who emerged on top, as the pair had equal points a coin was tossed to determine who would earn the rights to the all important pole position. Harper won the toss up and took his place on pole with McCready along side, Derek McMillan and McCully occupied row 2. At the green flag Harper stamped his authority by quickly building up a healthy advantage over second place man McCready. From then on Harper never looked under threat and was definitely in command on the wet track, McCready gave a good chase but it wasn’t enough. Harper completed the distance to win the King of Nutts Corner title, McCready was runner up with McCully finishing third.

Scott slides to victory lane!!

An increased showing of 1300 Stock Cars were in action for their third Nutts Corner outing of the new season. Low graders Andy Scott and Calvin Blake showed well in the greasy conditions in heat 1. Blake took the win from Scott in second. Blake got a great break in heat 2 and left the rest to follow in his tyre tracks, as the cars behind bumped and crashed into one and other Blake was happy to be left alone and went the distance to take his second win of the night, Irish champion Dan Feeney mad it through for a fine second. As per the formula rules Blake found himself upgraded to yellow grade for the final as he had won the previous 2 heats. When the final got under way Blake and Scott set the pace with blue grader Richard Harper hot on their tails. As the trio out front pushed hard for supremacy Ryan Stewart and Feeney were on the move and eventually found themselves in the leading group. The bumpers were flying in hard as a five way dice for the victory developed. Scott managed to create a gap between his self and the others, keeping his nerve to go all the way to claim his first final win of 2013; Feeney was again runner up with Blake taking third.

Double delight for McMullan

A dozen GP2 Lightning Rods were on track for their 2013 track debut at the Corner, Daryl Reid led them away in heat 1 but it was short lived as Greg McMullan powered through from the blue grade to take over at the head of proceedings. McMullan continued to take the win from Reid and lady racer Lucinda Smyth. Heat 2 started in a very similar fashion to the previous one with Reid setting the early pace. This time it was Jonny Gillespie who emerged from the blue grade on top. Gillespie went all the way to win from heat 1 winner McMullan. For the final the heat winners had to start of the rear of the blue grade as per the handicap system making it slightly more difficult for them to cut their way to the front. It was Smyth who looked fast in this one making her way to the front in just a few laps, McMullan wasn’t far behind after he battled his way up to second. McMullan kept the pressure on Smyth and his perseverance paid off as Smyth drifted wide allowing him to move through to the front. McMullan never looked back and went all the way to take the win in front of Smyth and Gillespie.
