Gunner Makes it a Double Irish
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.

Kincaid takes F2 Opener
The F2ís got their 2015 off to a great start with a 23 car turnout at Nutts Corner Raceway. New comers, next generation racers, former Junior rivals, call them what you like, Bradley McKinstry and Graham Fegan Junior got quickly acquainted with the bumpers in the class with a few big digs at each other throughout the day, given that the pair of them were making their senior class debut both of them did themselves proud and both started each of the races from the white grade, I can see a rivalry forming there that could be something to watch in years to come.
Graham Fegan Snr took the opening heat win in wet but drying conditions, Mark Rainy won heat two before Chris Kincaid won the final. The F2ís put on some great racing and as I wrote earlier in the week will be a class to watch out for in 2015.

Much in Store for local Open Wheel fans in 2015!
On several occasions over the past few years Iíve sat down to write a comparison between Superstox and F2ís, but itís quite a controversial thing and I know there is those who would read it that I was knocking one class or the other and more would be made out of it than is actually intended, it is after all quite a hot topic at the minute that people feel quite passionately about which is a good thing.

New Facebook Group for Old NI Oval Racing Photos
Inspired by the various other pages and groups on facebook dedicated to oval racing from days gone, I thought it was time to get in on the act and create something for old stuff from NI. Iíve tried on several occasions through NIF2 to try and get my hands on old stuff to post and share with limited success, but Iím hoping that technology has perhaps caught up with my ambitions and where you once had to have a scanner and a degree in computing to get it all downsized and e-mailed through Iím banking that these days the vast majority of people have camera phones, digital cameras that you can take a decent photo of an old photo and access to facebook where itís easier than it has ever been to upload photos.

Any group is only as good as itís members and what they post, so Iím just getting the ball rolling here and letís see where it ends up. Iím not a huge fan of pages that the admin spends the afternoon adding their entire friends list to a group that they perhaps didnít want to be a part of, so Iím inviting you to join it, submit youíre photos, youíre videos, youíre stories of the past and please do share it with people you think would be interested and feel free to approve any new members.

Ideally Iíd like to keep it to older content, there is plenty of places to post photos of your new Astra rod that youíll be doing 2 meetings in this season.

Get joining and get posting!
