Fegan retains title in style!
On Sunday afternoon the drivers and fans were treated to an upturn in the weather as the sun shone over the Co. Antrim circuit. To begin the afternoon the drivers would contest a further two qualifying heats in search of maximum points for the Irish Open grid. Greer picked up where he had left off the previous evening, with another fine win in the first heat before the former Stock Rod World Champion Stephen McCready got his hands on the silverware in the concluding heat event.
With all the points from the heats tallied, Greer and Fegan the defending champion shared the Irish Open front row with McConnell and Millar placed menacingly behind. As the race blasted into action Greer and McConnell tangled into turn 1 permitting Fegan to taking up the running unhindered, with C Burgoyne giving pursuit. While C Burgoyne was running strong in second spot in soon become clear he didn’t have an response to the run-away Fegan who continued to stretch his advantage at the front. Millar was another who was performing well running third most of the distance until S Burgoyne and the recovering McConnell arrived on the scene in the closing stages. Fegan controlled proceedings all the way to the end taking the win and indeed retaining the title, C Burgoyne was the gallant runner up ahead of his brother Steven who made it through to third after a late skirmish. McConnell salvaged fourth after his disastrous start with Millar coming dome in the top five. The eighth and final F2 event of the weekend was Sunday’s Grand National where Greer reiterated his Saturday night performance by taking yet another triumph. C Burgoyne was next across the line with McCready third.
Sunday Support Formula Round Up
The all action 2L Saloon Stock Cars were on top form all afternoon, as they joined the F2 Stock Cars in a support role for day number two. Robert Mawhinney followed the same pattern as Saturday night with a heat one win. Mawhinney set the early pace once again in heat two, this time around Matthew Stirling and Ryan Wright were soon challenging for the top spot and quickly slipped through. Wright hit the front briefly before an entertaining exchange of places followed between Wright, Stirling, Winston Weir and McIvor. After the dust had settled Stirling emerged the leader and completed the distance to take the spoils. True to form Mawhinney got off to a flying start in the trophy also but this time around Wright had broken clear of the star graders and was hunting down the race leader. Wright caught up with the rapid Mawhiney mid race and moved through to the head of the field completing the 20 laps to grab the silverware.
The Micro F2’s were again in attendance to battle it on Sunday afternoon, Joelan Maynard was among the star performers with two victories. Ava McCreight flew the flag high for the locals with two runner up finishes and a visit to victory lane in event two.
A pleasing entry of Junior Rods served up three thrilling races. Jonathan Brown got the ball rolling with a well-judged win in the opening encounter. Thereafter Rathfrilands Jack Morrow engraved his authority with victories in the following heat and the meeting final. Brown rounded out his afternoon with a pleasing second place finish just in front of Jason McMullan who has relished plenty of success in the early months of this season.
The ever budding Street Rod formula was a welcome addition to the race schedule. The formula continues to go from strength to strength in what is their debut season at the raceway. Portglenone man Richard Nicholl underlined his potential with terrific wins in heat one and the grand final. The World Cup champion Warren Thompson denied Nicholl a hat trick of wins when he slipped though for a well-executed victory in the second heat.
Race action continues at Nutts Corner Raceway on Wednesday 19th June (7.30pm) featuring the BriSCA F2 Stock Cars Grand National Series Round 5, 1300 Stock Cars, Junior Rods and Gp2 Lightning Rods.
