Top 2 Litre action at Tullyroan Oval
The 2 Litre Hot Rodís stole the show at Tullyroan Oval today (yes, Iím actually writing a report on the day the event happened, something quite rare) as an Emerson V Emerson battle for the final rounded out an afternoon of racing which could be considered a slow burner, but it certainly didnít disappoint in the end.

Grattan and Agnew victorious at Tullyroan
Iím not sure if itís an association I make with going back to school or if itís how the seasons are defined, but I always consider the last day of August as the last day of summer. In reality this year the last day of summer mid have been somewhere around mid June, it was a mid week day and I was in work, unless you live locally to Aghadowey in which case summer was on Easter Monday this year!

Ward Hat-Trick at Slick Tullyroan Meeting
Since Iím normally amongst the first to complain when a meeting drags on a bit, on this occasion Iíll be the first to commend a slick run meeting at Tullyroan which seen 15 races done and dusted inside 3 hours, followed by a caravan destruction derby which was done, dusted and photos etc finished in a further half hour. Even the Ninja Karts managed three races without a stoppage!

Hughes Wins Tooz at Ballymena
Going into this weekend I think Iíd been to Lochgelly as many times as Iíd been to Ballymena. As much as Iíd like to go to every stockcar meeting itís too much to try doing 3 meetings a weekend, week after week, it was once something Iíd have done a few times a season around Speedweekends, but now it seems most weekendís the option is there to do three meetings and itís just too much.

Cup Success for Jackson and Murray
If you read the 2Litre Hot Rod site then youíll probably realise Iíve run out of headline ideas for ďMurray winsÖÖ.Ē, on this occasion it may be a different Murray, a different family and a different class, but the writerís block remains.
John Murray won the Micro Bangers European Cup at Tullyroan on Sunday and went on to take the all comers race too. Steven Reynolds won the DD, which was starting to feel a bit like an endurance race and I reckon it was lap fourteen before it was settled, but in a weird way it was still entertaining and ended with a head on between Reynolds and Steven Bolton who was entertainer of the day. On a side note it was good to see a Last Rites car back at Tullyroan with Kevin Moran at the wheel.

Nicholl and Donnelly King and Queen of Aghadowey
Another trip to Aghadowey and another opportunity to stand out on a cold night in light showers. In the same way shale tracks get watered every few races it seems compulsory that the weather system at the North West venue provides itís own automated track watering system. For years I thought Iíd just been unlucky that I could only ever remember being at Aghadowey once on a good day, putting it down to not having been very often and perhaps it had all been early or late season meetings, I now realize it just always rains there. On the plus side for spectators there is the shed and for the rest of us it wasnít as wet as last week.
