NCR Silver Jubilee 13th and 14th June 2015

Nutts Corner Raceway Silver Jubilee celebrated in fine style!!!

Nutts Corner Raceway celebrated its 25th birthday with an action packed weekend of racing with over 30 mainland drivers joining in the celebrations. A bumper programme of 29 races greeted the fans with the added bonus of fine weather on both days.

BriSCA F2 Stock Cars

The prestigious F2 Irish Open championship headlined Saturday nights proceedings with a massive showing of the rapid single seater’s gathered to do battle. Drivers from all corners of the UK made the trip across the Irish Sea including the World champion George MacMillan Jnr. from Glasgow, Falkirk's Chris Burgoyne the Scottish champion and the newly crowned English Open champion Dave Polley from Cambridgeshire.

Each driver participated in two heat races to gain points for the Irish Open starting grid,  local ace Graham Fegan was the first to taste success when he romped to a convincing victory in heat one, Ryan McCrory was next across the line with mainland visitor Kelvyn Marshall a fine third. Marshall was the man to beat in the second encounter where he blasted his rapid machine to glory recording the first victory of the weekend for the visitors, McCrory was again the runner up with Feagn third.

With all the points added the BriSCA Challenge Cup champion Fegan found himself on pole position with the former English Open champion Marshall along side. Antrim's McCrory,Burgoyne,Craig McConnell the Irish champion and Polley completed the first block of cars on the grid.

As the green flag fell and the cars all charged towards turn one it wasn't long before the bumpers went flying in leaving it all change up front, the big losers being the front row sitters Fegan and Marshall both of whom dropped well down the ranks, McCrory was the beneficiary taking up the top spot after only one corner. The bumper exchanges continued for several laps with Polley, McConnell and Marshall trading places, all the while McCrory continued to extend his advantage, as the race settled down McConnell soon established himself in second place with Marshall a few car lengths behind. As the laps steadily ticked away and the 5 lap board appeared some may have thought it was all over but in the world of stock car racing anything can happen and indeed it did, a yellow suspension was called when Polley and fellow mainland drivers Pete McCallum come together heavily, the latter requiring some medical attention. All of McCrory's lead was reeled in with the cars bunched once more with a five lap dash to the flag imminent. As the green flag fell again McCrory was away in text book style building up a comfortable gap between himself and the chasing McConnell, this was how it would finish with McCrory the new Irish Open champion from McConnell and Marshall, Fegan recovered well to finish fourth ahead of the World champion MacMillan in fifth.

The race format on Sunday was slightly different with the NCR Jubilee Cup the first event, the grid used for the Irish Open was reversed giving the drivers who didn’t feature so well on Saturday a chance to start at the front. Antrim teenager Dean McCrory was the early pace setter holding the top spot right up to lap ten when the former Irish Open champion Chris Kincaid blasted through. A couple of yellow suspensions were required when Charlie Whitfield and Mark Rainey tangled on the airport bend and again when the World champion MacMillan made heavy contact with the pit gate, the World number 1 was assisted from his machine by the medical staff and unfortunately due to a shoulder injury was sidelined from the remainder of the meeting. Kincaid made a great break away at the restart, completing the laps to take the win from Marshall and McConnell. A further heat won by Ryan McCrory was run and the results added to the previous heats from Saturday’s meeting to form the grid for the highly sought after George Fegan Perpetual Cup.  When the maths was done Ryan McCrory emerged the pole sitter and he was quick to make full advantage powering well clear of his rivals. Fegan and Kincaid become involved in a private battle exchanging blows lap after lap until Kincaid eventually spun around losing a lot of time. McCrory lead right from the green flag until lap 22 when Marshall launched and assault on the Irish Open champion, the pair lost considerable ground paving the way for McConnell was just a few car lengths behind waiting to pick up the pieces. McConnell completed the laps to take the flag ahead of Burgoyne and Fegan.

ORC Stock Rods

Like the BriSCA F2's the Stock Rod field was swollen greatly with a massive influx of mainland UK drivers in attendance to do battle for the coveted Irish Open title on Saturday. Some of the sports top names such as the European champion Derek Conner and the newly crowned British champion Steven McKane from Ballymena were in action,  McKane's evening got of to a bad start when he crashed heavily in heat one which eliminated the local star from taking any further part in the weekends proceedings, in stark contrast Scottish ace John McAlister kicked his night of in style with a well calculated win in heat one. It was a local man Gareth Bevan in the spotlight come heat two where the Larne man powered to a convincing win. Points gained from both the heats were used to calculate a grid for the big one, a fourth place finish in heat one coupled with his heat two win saw Bevan start from pole position. Bevan used his 11 years of experience in the formula to skilfully blast into the lead and hold the advantage all the way to the finish, Bevan was joined on the podium by heat one winner McAlister and the European champion Conner.  The Stock Rods were again in action on day number 2 of the speed weekend, former Junior Rod Irish champion Niall McFerran took an excellent victory in the first Irish Master heat in what was his senior formula debut at Nutts Corner. Levi Robinson from Scotland was the victor in heat two which set the scene nicely for his fellow countrymen to dominate the rest of the meeting with McAlister scooping the silverware in the Irish Masters final, he was followed across the line by Trevor Calvin and Conner.

BriSCA Heritage F2 Stock Cars

Something new on the programme over the weekend making their first ever appearance in the province was the BriSCA Heritage F2 Stock Cars. The formula reflects the early years of the sport, with the cars built in line with the F2 specifications from the 1960s period.  Cars such as the Ford Pop and Model Y are the driver’s choice. The sights and sounds of these wonderfully crafted machines provided a nostalgic trip down memory lane for many who remember that period fondly. Saturday night saw the retro machines contest their Irish Open championship over two heats and a closed grid final. Keith Passy was the winner in heat one before Pete Welland took the spoils in heat two. Passy was again on the pace in the inaugural running of the Irish Open championship where he collected the silverware, Andy Bateman and Nick Whitney completed the podium steps. The Heritage F2 Stock Cars helped in the birthday celebrations again on Sunday as they proudly done battle for the NCR Silver Jubilee Cup, Brian Owen and Graham Bunter shared the heat wins with Dan Chiplen recording an excellent win in the feature race, Andy Bateman was the second place man with Nick Whitney rounding out his weekend with a trophy finish in third.

Support Classes

The 2L Saloon were on hand to provide Saturday's support; with a depleted entry of only 5 cars the quality was much greater than quantity. The drivers put on a fine display for the large crowd with the bumpers getting used to good effect all night. Matthew Stirling enjoyed wins in both the roof coloured heats before it was all change in the closed grid final. Stirling started on pole with Kieran McIvor alongside, veteran racer Stuart McCammon and the Irish Champion Ryan Wright shared row 2 with the rapid Anthony McIvor positioned menacingly at the rear. As the race burst into life Wright delivered a heavy blow sending cars flying in every direction, this then set the scene with A McIvor doing the very same into the next bend, this was to continue for several laps with Wright, A McIvor and McCammon all battling hard for second spot, by this stage Stirling had retired to the infield and K McIvor had built up a small lead just enough to keep him safe from the carnage behind. Wright eventually spun McCammon out of contention allowing A McIvor to secure second spot. With the laps ticking away the second and third place runners couldn’t close the gap on Kieran who took the spoils well clear of his brother Anthony and Wright.

The Junior F2's took their opportunity to feature on the big stage on Saturday evening, half a dozen young stars highlighted their talent to the onlookers where Tyler McClurkin took the checkers in both races.

Sunday's support action come from the Euro Stocks and Junior Rods with both the non contact formulas on fine form. The juniors were out in force with a good field of cars present to do battle for their NCR Silver Jubilee Cup. Antony Kincaid romped to victory in heat one before Jack Kennedy stepped up to take the spoils in the second Junior event. The feature final was a close fought affair with all the big names such as Jack Patchett, Kincaid and Kennedy all wanting to collect the coveted silverware. Patchett was first across the line but unfortunately his car failed post race scrutineering which handed the win to Kincaid, Kennedy was the runner up with Taylor Broggy third. The Euro Stocks more commonly seen it action at Ballymena raceway made a welcome return to NuttsCorner to contest their 2015 Gold Cup, the class only in its second full season has been going from strength to strength with more drivers joining the ranks at every meeting. Ryan Nixon and Mark Frew shared the heat wins before Nixon went on to secure victory again in the Gold Cup final to make it a fine double, Johnny McCloy was the second place man with Phillip Doherty completing the podium finishers.

With the Silver Jubilee Speed Weekend now done and dusted we turn our attentions to the next instalment of short oval action at the “corner” which will take place on Wednesday 24th June at 7.30pm with the F2's in action for yet another Grand National series qualifying round. The 1300 stock cars will make a welcome return as they contest their Gold Cup while the Stock Rods and GP 2 Lighting Rods will provide the support element of the 13 race schedule.
