#StockcarRacingIsMagic

Speedweekend Sunday
The second day of the speedweekend always seems like youve never been away, I think I got home on Saturday night at 11.40 and was sorting photos out and clearing memory cards until around 1am then up again at 8 to get batteries charged and get back to Tullyroan. The second day is also big race day, and going by the earlier forecasts Id seen during the week it was going to be dry and the worst of the weather should have been on Saturday night.. it turns out I need a different weather app on my phone.

Speedweekend Saturday
Like many of the competitors and their crews the Speedweekend for me starts well in advance of arriving at the track on Speedweekend Saturday. NIOvalTV was planning the World Final T-shirt with Clive Marchant ahead of the European weekend at Lochgelly in April, I dont think the world cup had started when we were doing the first pages of the race programme, I remember working on the programme as results came in from Ipswich, Skegness and Northampton. Its almost a relief to get to the big day as much as anything.

ProStocks Irish Open - Rarely Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
While much of the talk this week will be of the Speedweekend and the 2 Litre Hot Rod World Championship, there is what some people would consider a support race that is more than capable of upstaging the headline act, in fact some would say it will be the headline act on the Saturday night for others perhaps it simply is the headline act, I am of course referring to the ProStocks Irish Open Championship.

Been There, Done That. Bought the T-shirt? - Part 2
There is a long list of things Id like to do and see in local oval racing, and in fact in Oval racing in general, some of it is beyond my control, such as Id love to see a class get to the stage it needs split heats and qualifying for the final, the way F1s, F2s and Saloons do at well supported meetings, Id love to see a day when the F1s grace the tracks in NI, Id love to see a major championships return to NI for open wheeled classes, be it Superstox or F2s. It would be great to see big screens up around the racing like you see at Grand Prixs of major sporting events, for now Id even settle for a scoreboard like Ipswich but then again the time might come when you can do that through an app on your phone with a live feed from the mylaps.

Six of the Best at Tullyroan
A few years back at Nuttscorner Oval, following the demise of the Production / 2.0 Stock Cars and before the arrival of the ProStocks, it was quite normal to have a long run of meetings with all non contact classes. It shows how much times have changed when the promotion is now able to field four contact classes in the one meeting and you rely on the other two to bring a few incidents too.

It's hard to beat a wee road trip, and if your going to do a road trip then it's hard to beat seeing the F1's at the end of it.
