World Champ Bolton Rules!

A healthy gathering of thirteen Micro National Bangers were on hand to keep the race fans royally entertained at Nutts Corner Raceway on Sunday afternoon. A passing shower had left the track slippery for heat one, which ultimately added to the spectacle. Dublin ace “Little Stevo” McGrath was quick to get through the traffic ahead of the Unlimited Banger World Champion Steven Bolton. McGrath was the pace setter again in heat two with Bolton giving chase once more. The McKinstry duo of Adrian and Matthew had different ideas for the leading pair however as they soon mounted an attack on both McGrath and Bolton. The result of the McKinstry onslaught allowed fellow McKinstry,  Joshua to take the victory, McGrath recovered well to complete the distance in second.

Ballymoney’s Bolton took charge of proceedings in the meeting final, powering well clear of the competition to take the honours ahead of J McKinstry and Matt Milliken.  A rowdy Destruction Derby was the last test of the afternoon for the Micro Bangers, J McKinstry completed his afternoon in style by picking up another victory.

Darragh on a red hot streak of Final wins

Eight Group 2 Lightning Rods took the opening green flag of the day in heat one, Rasharkin’s Jason Darragh was the only blue grader with the remainder of the field completed by star and champion grade drivers. Darragh set the benchmark for the duration of the race, taking the win ahead of Paul Nesbitt. The field was boosted in two with late arrival of Denver Logan and David Nesbitt. Logan was the early race leader until a caution period was required to deal with a stranded car on the rear stretch. D Nesbitt made the best situation and used the restart to his advantage; moving through to pick up the lead and eventually the race win. Freddie Fleck was the runner up hot on the heels of the race winner. Darragh was the form man in the meeting final where he cruised clear of the field to take his second win of the day, Fleck was again on the pipe to record a fine runner up finish with P Nesbitt completing the podium set in third.

Lowry excels in action packed 1300 Final

The 1300 Stock Car field was enhanced by a welcome visitor from Scotland; in the form of former Brisca F1 Stock Car star Paul Ford. Ex- Prostock racer was the first to feature when a romped clear of the competition to take a fantastic victory in heat one. A thrilling battle among the star graders resulted in a pleasing runner up finish for local man Nicky Lowry.  Wright pulled of another flawless drive in the remaining heat to capture his second win of the day. The double heat win for Wright resulted in automatic promotion to the blue grade for the meeting final.  The grand final turned out to be race of the day, with plenty of thrills and spills including a roll over for William Stewart. Jack Kearney was the early pace setter before himself and the heat winner Wright got tangled up in turn two.  Michael Logan didn’t hesitate in taking up the running at the front before a caution period was required for a stricken car on the back straight. Lively exchanges on the resumption would see Wright make a return to the top spot momentarily as the four lap marker appeared coupled with another caution flag this time for debris on the track.  The restart resulted in further drama’s when Stewart’s machine ended upside down on the Airport bend. With the yellow flag again on display the scene was set for a grandstand finish! As anyone would have predicted the bumpers continued to clash over the closing laps with several changes of position right through the pack. Lowry was the eventual winner with Wright the runner up and Ford third.

Rainey hurry’s home for victory

Completing the race card was the Micro F2’s; star name Jack Morrow made short work of his lap down handicap in event one, where he blasted through for the win ahead of Ava McCreight. Chelsey Rainey was a welcome addition in event two, fresh of the Ferry after competing at Cowdenbeath Racewall in Scotland the previous evening. Rainey was the run-away leader in event two until red flags were required for an incident involving McCreight.  Morrow relished the restart which allowed him to progress to his second win of the meeting. Rainey made her overnight journey back to home soil well worthwhile, romping to a clear victory in the final event. Morrow again showed form, recording a creditable second place finish.

What was already an action packed race event was topped off to perfection with the final event on track; the eagerly anticipated Caravan Destruction Derby. Ten Caravans contested a gruelling battle for several minutes.  Once the dust had settled it was local man Scott Rainey who emerged the victor in his impressive Jaguar car.
