First wet one of the year at Aghadowey
Aghadowey had got off to a nice dry start to the season, but eventually it was inevitable there would be a wet meeting. While recent years there has been a run of tracks getting wet or dry meetings, the wet weather seems to be following the National Hot Rods around, I think Iím right in saying this was their third wet meeting on the trot.

Tullyroan Oval 9/5/15
In normal circumstances Iíd be sitting down and writing a report on a cracking meeting at Tullyroan Oval, adding some detail to mention that the Superstox final was the race of the night, Jonny Cardwell was in a class of his own in the Stock Rods and how even the Classic Hot Rods were quite enjoyable. This isnít a normal day though and itís not normal circumstances, today the sport has lost a young talent in Keir Millar following an incident in the Ministox at Lochgelly last night. Although fatalities in Oval racing and indeed motorsport as a whole are few and far between itís never good when the happen and itís exceptional tough when itís a competitor of such a young age. Keir had made a few trips to NI in his Ninja Kart days, probably winning more races than he didnít when he visited NI. My thoughts go out to Keirís family, friends and staff and spectators at HRP.

May Day At Aghadowey
There seems to have been some sort of switch over in the weather, I donít want to scud it, but weíve now had three dry meetings out of three at Aghadowey this season, which I believe is more than we managed all last season, while Tullyroan been mounting a challenge to be known as the wet and miserable venue this season so far. I suppose it being T-shirt weather at Lochgelly on the Saturday of the recent Speedweekend there should have been a sign that all is not normal with the weather.

Tullyroan Oval 2/5/15
I'm somewhat stuck for something to write, so in short it was the most miserable wet, cold, windy night of racing I can ever recall going to in May. I've now 2 cameras in the hotpress in they hope they dry out and are both functioning for tomorrow, we'd to close NIOvalTV because the rain was hitting the back of it and all the stock was getting wet and we'd to stop filming because the footage was just a blur and it wasn't worth risking the cameras for it.

Weekend Roundup from DMC Meetings
The season may only be a few weeks old, but with the first speedweekend trip of the year over itís already starting to feel well established.
After being away last weekend I made the decision earlier in the week that Iíd only be doing two of the three meetings this weekend and judging by the crowds at them I wasnít alone in missing meetings.

Trip to Scotland with the European Hylander
Itís strange only being a few weeks into the domestic season and already weíve the first trip away for a speed weekend of the season. For me last years European weekend missed the Superstox and the National Saloons which had been there the previous year as support, even the Ninja karts where weíd quite a local interest had travelled, as a result I was going to give it a miss in 2015ÖÖ and then the Superstox British was announced and Iíd the accommodation booked within minutes of the announcement, I think that was late November!

Chris ďGunnerĒ Lattka made it a double Irish this weekend in the Stock Rods when he added the Stock Rods Irish Open Championship title at Aghadowey today (yes, Iím doing a report on the same day as the meeting, like old times!) to the Irish Masters title he won at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday

Gunner is the Master at Tullyroan
On Saturday night it was the turn of Tullyroan Oval to have their season opener with the Stock Rods headlining with their Irish Masters. Again if there was a good turn out of cars in the class, but again you feel theyíd be better together. Willie Taggart won the opening heat before Scottish Ace Chris ĎGunnerí Lattka won the second heat and the final.
