Local’s share the Silverware with the Mainland’s elite at the Raceway

Waringstown’s Ross Houston was the toast of Nutts Corner Raceway after a superb victory in the Irish Open Championship. The Gilmore Engineering sponsored Irish Open race was the opening Saloon encounter of the afternoon, with the starting positions decided by a public draw. Drivers from England and Scotland, including defending Irish Open Champion George Boult from Surrey and the current World and British title holder Stuart Shevill Jnr. from Motherwell, joined the best from the province for the showdown. It was Stuart’s brother, Graeme Shevill, who raced into an early lead from pole position, before Houston, who started on the second row, eased ahead. World Champion Shevill was making great strides through the field from his starting position on row 6 and turned aside Irish Champion Ryan Wright to move into third spot. Houston was still setting a great pace out front, with the World Champion now up into second and chasing hard after the leader. As the laps counted down the gap between the two leaders was visibly closing and all did not sound well beneath the bonnet of Houston’s car. The crowd were on tenderhooks willing Houston to hold on and the Waringstown man managed to nurse his car home just ahead of Shevill for a famous victory. Behind the front two a tremendous battle raged for third between Boult, Matthew Stirling, Shane Davies, James Serplus and the recovered Wright. A big sort out on the final third eventually saw the final podium spot go to Boult and Wright who were deemed to have crossed the line in a dead heat.

Race two was for the UK Masters event, which was sponsored by Adrian Grant Commercials. The grid was a reserve of the opening heat line-up and it was Stuart Shevill Jnr. who quickly took up the running in this one. Boult, Wright and Tommy McCrory Jnr. battled over second before the first caution period brought the pack together again. Leader Shevill pulled away at the restart before the yellows were out once more after Graeme Shevill fired newcomer Andrew Dickson in hard at the river bend. It looked like the crowd were in for a grandstand finish as Wright closed in on the race leader, but a back marking Graeme Shevill got between the pair and the opportunity disappeared which allowed Stuart Shevill Jnr. to add another title to his ever growing list. Wright was good value for second, while Anthony McIvor spun out McCrory at the end to snatch third.

The final Saloon race was for the Johnny Griffiths Memorial Trophy, with the cars lining up in roof colours but with the gaps closed between each grade. There was action everywhere you looked in this one, with Wright and McCrory in particular keeping the large crowd royally entertained with their own private battle. It was Shevill who once again plotted his way through to the front however, the World Champion rounding off a very successful trip to the province with another race win. Brother Graeme made it a Shevill one-two in the memorial race, with the last of the striking trophies going to Boult.

Blair shows flair ahead of big weekend

Antrim man Gary Blair showed he is no slouch just one week ahead of the big International event for the F2’s at the raceway when he stormed to a superb victory in the F2 Gold Cup in what was his debut meeting in a new chassis from the A+D Race Prep camp. Blair held his nerve all the way to the flag being followed home by Sam McKay and returnee Gavin Fegan. Earlier in the programme there was heat wins for Wayne Hewitt and Conor Hughes.

Support action Review

Niall McFerran returned to top form in the junior rod ranks where he completed the meeting undefeated after taking a excellent brace of wins in both the heats and final, Irish champion Aaron Moody was the gallant runner up in the final with the king of nuttscorner Jack Kennedy taking third.

The Stewart brothers Ryan and William dominated proceedings in the 1300 stock cars; sharing the heat wins before William cruised to victory again in the trophy race. Noel Hazlett  lifted the flag in speed stock heat one before Adrian Finnegan stepped it up a gear to collect the silverware in the meeting final.
