McIvor swoops Irish Open title

Kieran McIvor was the toast of the local racing scene when Ballymena Raceway staged the Saloon Stock Car Irish Open Championship at Nutts Corner on April 7.  A fantastic entry of 36 Saloon Stock Cars produced some fantastic action and McIvor was the star of the show as the Coleraine racer, so often the bridesmaid in recent championship events, produced a storming performance to be crowned Irish Open Champion. Scottish stars Stuart Shevill Jnr. and Alan Ainslie captured the honours in the qualifying heats before Ben King from Taunton booked his place in the championship with a victory in the last chance event. The damp conditions were a real test for all the qualifiers in the championship final, but McIvor made light of the slippery track to swat aside the high class field and claim his biggest success to date. European Champion Deane Mayes from Norfolk and Max Stott from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire joined McIvor on the podium.

The concluding instalment of race action on day two was run in a two third format with each of the drivers competing in two heats in an attempt to score points to enhance their starting slot on the Irish Masters grid. There was a feel of spring in the air as the sun drenched the Co. Antrim venue, allowing the drivers to get up to speed on a dry track which was a massive contrast to the previous evening. Max Stott was again on fine form come heat one where he cruised to glory. Veteran racer Ian Elms took full advantage of his white grade start to hold on for a fine victory in heat two, Cole Atkins continued his impressive run of results when he got his hands on the silverware in the final heat. 29 cars gridded to do battle for the feature race with Stott and Elms prominently place on the front row. A lively start saw cars spinning in all directions and many battles for position developing right through the field. It was Kieren Bradford who negotiated proceedings to perfection consequently taking the honours; Stott was the runner up making it a fantastic debut trip to Ulster for the Cambridge man. Kieran McIvor rounded out his weekend in style with another trophy finish in third. 

The support racing at Saturday’s BRM Services sponsored meeting was provided by the Group Two Lightning Rods, Stock Rods and Junior Rods. David Nesbitt and Clive Wilson split the heat wins in the GP2 Rods before the final boiled down to a keen duel between Wilson and Paul Nesbitt. There was little to separate the Nutts Corner track veterans, but Wilson just kept his nose in front to secure the honours. A splendid entry of nineteen Junior Rods produced thrills and spills aplenty. Jack Morrow and Amy Bradford enjoyed victories in the heat races before the final was interrupted by a spectacular rollover for Matthew Drysdale. At the resumption Bradford looked set to nail down her second win of the evening until Jordan Nicholl nipped ahead on the very last lap to take the Challenge Cup. In the Stock Rod division Mark Turtle and Shea Duff shared the heat wins as the white grade dominated proceedings. Turtle was a very early casualty in the final however as Raymond Harper eased his way to the front. The former British Champion still had plenty to do though as Kurtis Reid tracked his every move throughout. Ice cool Harper never made a wrong move however to seal the win ahead of the impressive Reid and Niall McFerran.

Sunday’s support element was provided by the Brisca F2 Stock Cars, Micro F2’s and 1300 Stock Cars while the new Elite Hot Rod formula was on hand to complete three demonstration events, where Warringstown’s Ross Houston treated the onlookers to a fine display of hot laps in a Ginetta style Hot Rod. Bradley McKinstry  was again on top form in the F2’s where he proved unbeatable in both the heat events before the seasoned campaigner Craig McConnell up his game to take honours in the Gold Cup Final.  Former Junior Rod Star Joshua McKinstry highlighted his potential in the 1300 Stock Car section taking a fine heat and final double only to be denied the perfect hat trick by Robbie Wright who claimed the victory in heat two. Completing the busy race card was the popular Micro F2’s, Jack Morrow was in dominating form taking the victory in all three events.

Racing returns to Nutts Corner Raceway on Wednesday 18th April at 7.30pm featuring Brisca F2 Stock Cars Grand National Series Rd1, Junior Rods, 2L Saloon Stock Cars and Stock Rods.
