Reynolds the Van to Beat at Tullyroan
In recent years the anti has been upped with festive meetings. I remember a time when it was just another meeting, you never knew who was driving which car and the turnouts would have been about half of what you’d expect at an in season meeting. In recent years it’s changed, the Big Van Bangers bring something different, the Robins Irish has added a title into the mix and the National Hot Rods Winternationals gives them a run out.

Having not bothered with the boxing day fixtures and New Years day is always a last minute decision based on how New Years Eve went, then it’s quite likely the Tullyroan festive meeting will be the only one I’m doing this year….. we’ll see.

With the Robins having raced at Aghadowey the Van Bangers took centre stage at Tullyroan and like the various other Banger meetings, they were down on the numbers you’d expect. Steven Reynolds won the Vandalism final while the All Comers was probably their best race of the day, or that could have been because all the action seemed to be at my feet. The DD finished in style with a head one between Paul Compelli and Paul Gaffney.

The Superstox for me where the class of the day, although they had pretty slippery conditions to content with following the van bangers on track. Gregg Hyndman took the opening heat before Jeff Minish won heat two and Gary Grattan won the final after fending off a last bend attack from Kyle Beattie who just couldn’t get close enough to make enough contact to budge the 917 machine.

Keeping with the open wheeled theme, Sam Percy took his first win in the Ninja Karts by taking the opening heat before the second heat and an action packed final went to Adam McFall. For some of the Ninja Kart drivers this was their last meeting in the class, I wish them well whatever they move on to next.

The 2 Litre Hot Rods seen the debut of Derek McMillan in a well presented Tigra. Jack Boal took heat one, Gareth Thompson won the second and Shane Murray walked away with the final. With the class starting in Tipperary in 2015 and some cars going down there, I worry a bit for the 2 Litres, the numbers always drop a bit out of season, but there is more talk of where cars are going than who is coming into them.

Curtis Greer won all three races in the 1300s.
