Kincaid Storms to Irish Victory

Antrim’s ace Christopher Kincaid stormed to yet another Irish Closed Championship victory in the Brisca F2 stock cars.  The defending title holder Kincaid, who started the biggest domestic race of the season commanded proceedings right from the off.  At the green Kincaid blasted around turn’s one and two keeping himself out of danger while the rest of the field battled for position.  Ryan McCrory soon established himself as the second place runner with Gavin Fegan who started on pole outside now in third.  A pile up on turns three & four involving Mark Rainey and Billy Finnegan caused a yellow suspension period, which in turn regrouped the cars leaving the second and third place runners, now the tail of the race leader.  Kincaid got away in text book style, with McCrory and Fegan in tow.  Fegan quickly made his move on McCrory for second and was now in chase of the race leader.  As the laps passed Fegan began to close the gap between himself and Kincaid, until he found himself right on the leader’s tail.  Fegan made his move, however this was to be in vain as Kincaid drove clear of the second place runner once more.  While further back in the pack there were plenty of lively exchanges for the minor placings.  Kincaid completed the race distance taking the glory ahead of the gallant runner up’s Gavin Fegan and Ryan McCrory in third.

Two action packed heat races followed the feature race for the F2’s, which saw wins for Scott Finlay and Thomas Greer.

Reynolds is Stadium Champion

The GP 2 Lightning Rods who have had a great season at Nutts Corner gave another top account of themselves as they contested their Stadium Championship.  The on form David Reynolds occupied pole position with Matthew Curran along side, while former Irish Champion Freddie Fleck and Jason Darragh completed row two.  At the green flag Reynolds got off to a flyer with Curran and Fleck giving chase.  Curran was soon piling the pressure onto the leading 88 machine of Reynolds, with Fleck still featuring well in third.  By this stage Paul Nesbitt a newcomer to the formula was making good progress through the field.  A yellow suspension was required to remove the stricken David Gillespie car from the raceway; this left the cars lined up bumper to bumper awaiting a restart and indeed the remaining laps.  Reynolds made a great breakaway on green and went on to take the flag ahead of Curran and Nesbitt.  It was the Irish Champion Nesbitt who took the honours in the heat race which rounded up the evening’s action for the popular GP 2 Lightning Rods.  

Calvin’s Gold Cup

It was also championship time for the very entertaining 1300 Stock Cars, as they contested their coveted Gold Cup title.  The race format saw two heats which would determine the feature race grid.  Peter Greer was the victor of heat one, Calvin Blake was able to go one better in heat two were he took the flag ahead of the earlier heat winner Greer.  The heat results tallied into points which saw the heat winners occupy the front row for the final, with the Ulster champion Jon McQuillan qualifying third.  McQuillan was quick to engage the bumper at the green allowing himself to move into the lead, with Blake and Greer next in line.  McQuillan was comfortable out front for much of the race however as the laps ticked away young Calvin began to close the gap, until eventually he found himself at McQuillan’s tail.  So now in the closing stages Blake was all over the race leader and indeed looking for a way past.  As the lap boards appeared Blake found a gap on the inside and didn’t hesitate to take his chance in moving through to the lead.  This proved to be the winning move with Blake taking the honours, McQuillan held on for second with Greer third.

Cathal strikes again

The young stars in the micro F2’s were again out in force.  They have now become known for providing the onlookers with something of a spectacle, with the latest action featuring a rollover for Mia Hill in the meeting final.  Relative new comer Jake Barrett continued to impress when he took a very convincing win in heat one, followed home by Abbi McKinstry.  The final was a very lively affair with no shortage of dramas.  Rhianna Murray was quick to impress when she swooped along the inside of four or five cars to take up the running, early in the race.  Cathal McFerran found some top pace to pull off a similar stunt as Rhianna, to take his place out in front.  McFerran was soon under pressure from the rapid Scott Hosie but before the pair could have a proper duel the red flags were aired for an incident on the airport bend.  The result was subsequently declared from the previous lap with McFerran the winner ahead of Hosie.

Antony takes Silverware

The ever popular Junior Rods were on hand to provide some support action to the F2 Irish Championship meeting.  It was former Ninja Kart star Joel McPeake who scooped the honours in heat one ahead of Leah Hughes.  Young Josh Anderson put in a very steady drive to record a fine win in heat two in front of Sam Wilson.  Come final time it was the rapid Antony Kincaid who proved unstoppable, he sliced his way from the back through the traffic to take up the running.  Kincaid went on to take the win in commanding style.  Wilson featured well again to take a well deserved runner up finish, while McPeake picked up more silverware with a well judged third spot.

The final race event of the season takes place on Saturday 8th October at 6.30pm with a mouth watering line up including the 1300 stock car Nationals Championship. The Junior Rod & Micro F2’s will contest their Irish Championships while the Super Saloons and 2L Saloons will complete the bumper race card.
