Cripper retains Irish Open Crown 

The local F2 drivers were joined on track by racers from England and Scotland to contest the highly coveted Irish Open Championship, 2 graded heat races would determine the grid for the closed grid Irish Open showdown. Heat one got of to an explosive start when Darren Lockhart and Sam Mckay tangled dramatically on the river bend, a caution period followed to allow recovery of the damaged vehicles. The race had just resumed a few moments until another yellow flag was aired, this time Martin Stewart and Sean McFerran were the casualties, incidentally in the same location as the earlier drama of Lockhart and McKay. Gavin Fegan was quickly away clean at the restart and was able to complete the distance to take the win ahead of Dean McCrory and Ian Thompson Jnr. Heat two was again a fiery affair with caution periods required to aid Martin Conlon, James Crosset and George Campbell. Thompson Jnr had things under control at the front where he managed to take the victory well clear of Graham Fegan and Christopher 'Cripper' Kincaid in second and third. With the points tallied Thompson Jnr emerged the pole sitter for the title decider with Gavin Fegan alongside while Kincaid and Bradley McKinstry were the occupants of row two. This all star grid set-up promised a thrilling title race. At the green flag Thompson Jnr escaped any attempted first bend assaults after negotiating a perfect start, Kincaid quickly positioned himself as the chaser in second with Ryan McCrory bursting through to third. A caution period was required when McKay and Billy Finnegan come to rest on the exit of turn two, this was diminish any lead that Thompson Jnr held as the cars were lined up in Indian file awaiting the resumption.  Thompson Jnr anticipated another text book start however after a few racing laps it become clear Kincaid had the stronger pace. Kincaid punted the leader wide and moved through to the front with R McCrory in tow. Kincaid continued to stretch  away in the lead and it looked as though this is how it would remain to the flag. As the 2 lap board come on display another caution period was called to deal with a big incident on the home straight, this would see the cars regrouped once again adding extra tension for the imminent 2 lap dash to the flag. Kincaid kept his calm on the resumption completing the remaining distance to successfully defend his Irish Open title, R McCrory was the gallant runner-up with Thompson Jnr holding on for third. A Grand National Event would conclude the F2 action for the weekend, Crossett was the early leader in this one with McFerran giving chase, it wasn't long until McFerran took up the running out front where he dominated the remainder of the race to take the win well clear of D McCrory and McKinstry.

 F1's roar into town

Making their first ever appearance in Northern Ireland was the superb Heritage F1 Stock Cars. Unfortunately a depleted showing of only four cars were in attendance after a several drivers had to cancel their bookings due to unforeseen circumstances, however quality overshadowed quantity and the fans were thrilled by the sights and sounds of these non-silenced retro V8 powered machines. Martin Makim and Anthony Whittaker were the heat winners before Sam Makim romped to a flag to flag victory in the Irish Open Championship Final. Completing the podium steps was the heat winners, while Mike Shirley was 4th. The Heritage F1's were a real hit with fans at the Raceway and a return visit to the province would be highly welcomed.

Ava is speed Queen!

Ava McCreight was the star performer in the Micro F2 class. The youngster enjoyed their opportunity to perform on the big stage as part of the F2 Irish Open Championship meeting. They all contested three action packed events where Ava McCreight and Jack Morrow were among the pace setters. English visitor Joelan Maynard was a welcome addition to the ranks, her trip across the Irish Sea proved rather fruitful as she run towards the front of the pack in event two where a third place finish was recorded.

McCammon lands final win

Armagh's Daryl McCammon was on hand to pick up the pieces and take the honours after a dramatic last bend reshuffle in the 2L Saloon final. The long time leader Robert Mawhinney come under fire from Kieran McIvor in the closing laps which allowed McIvor to take the lead with only a few laps remaining. Mawhinney tried his level best to reclaim the top spot on the last bend but in his efforts he spun around the leading K McIvor and indeed himself, this allowed McCammon to slip through and pick up the silverware. McCammon was followed home by Leonard Dunn the current Pro Stock World Cup Champion who was enjoying his first outing in the formula. Earlier in the afternoon the Irish Champion and Mawhinney recorded heat wins.

Sneaky win for Elliott

The 1300 Stock Car final ended in similar circumstances to the 2L Saloon version after the leading duo Adrian McKinstry and Michael Logan tangled up with only a handful of laps remaining.  The tangle up allowed Calvin Blake and Ivan Elliott to  sneak through to the front. Blake held the advantage all the way to the last bend before Elliott performed a well calculated hit to move through and take the win, Blake was the gallant runner up with Logan recovering well to pick up third. Blake had already made a visit to victory lane earlier in the meeting when he took the win in heat one before Jack Kearney took the heat two honours.
