Drivers and fans alike were greeted by inclement conditions and Fridays NuttsCorner fixture. Race one of the evening was the opening Brisca F2 encounter. While the drivers searched for grip all race long to little avail, the rapid Stephen McCready had found traction and was commanding proceedings. As the race decayed Graham Fegan edged closer to the leader McCready until the pair were as one going into the final lap. Fegan put the bumper into McCready in an attempt to unsettle him from the top spot; however it proved not to be enough as the pair tangled with each other. McCready crossed the line first albeit sideways with Fegan next. Gerard Hartley took up the early heat two running, this time Fegan had broken well clear of his fellow star graders and soon started to chase down Hartley. Fegan didn’t waste much time in catching Hartley and making a move for the front. Once Fegan took over at the helm it was plain sailing all the way to the end, this time McCready was the runner up. The final was brought under red flag conditions on lap one after an unsatisfactory start was declared by the Steward. When the race got going proper Aaron Brunton occupied the early sway briefly before Fegan stormed through. As per heat two, Fegan went on to take the silverware ahead of McCready, Curtis Greer rounded out the podium steps.
Robert Mawhinney enjoyed the wet conditions in the 2L Saloon Stock Cars where he romped well clear of the competition in heat one to take a clear triumph ahead of the runner up Daryl McCammon. Mawhinney looked as though he was going to perform a repeat in heat two, however Winston Weir and Anthony McIvor closed in drastically in the concluding laps. Weir was hot on Mawhinney’s tail on the back straight for the final time and quickly went in with a last bend punt which would spin the leader out of contention. This allowed McIvor to slip through and take the win. Mawhinney was back on top form in the final, rapidly dispatching McCammon. Once in the lead Mawhinney reeled of the laps to take the victory ahead of McIvor.
Another doing the rain dance was Robbie Wright in the 1300 Stock Cars. The super star graded driver sliced his way through the traffic to record a definite victory in heat one. Calvin Blake was the runner up in the opening heat before Ryan Stewart followed Wright across the line in the second event. The final was a burly affair with the double heat winner Wright not getting it all his own way at this time of asking. After several lively exchanges Ryan Stewart emerged the victor, making it two final wins on the bounce, at NuttsCorner. Blake finished his evening with another runner up finish ahead of Nicky Lowry.
In the Group Two Lightning Rods, Randalstown man George Esler took full advantage of his yellow grade starting slot; cruising to glory in both the heats. Paul Nesbitt was Esler’s closest trailer in heat one while Clive Wilson was the runner up the second time around. The double heat win resulted in an upgrade to blue for Esler, which would see him be denied the hat trick of wins. Esler got off to a storming start and commanded proceedings until the last stretch, when Wilson used his years of race craft to beat Esler to the finish line after a spectacular outside line dash. Elser was the noble runner up with Rodney Stewart third.
Completing the race card was the Micro F2 Stock Cars. Joshua Murray and Amy Morrow were the top performers while Mya Hill also featured prominently.
