Gary bags a brace at Tullyroan thumbnailThomas Dilly and Clive Richardson during their battle in the Classic Hot Rods at Tullyroan on Saturday night

ON a night of excellent racing at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday, Limavady driver Gary O’Neill was bang on form winning both heats and taking second place in his ‘Yellow Peril’ Classic Hot Rod Anglia.

The regular stars in the Dilly Roofing Supplies NI Series were joined by welcome visitors Gerry Rothwell and Adrian Boyle from the Republic of Ireland for the latest round of the series.

After his brace of wins in the opening heats, Gary, starting from third, led the final until he was closed down by Thomas Dilly and Clive Richardson who were enjoying their own battle before Richardson was forced into retirement with an engine failure.

Thomas, therefore, raced home to the feature race final victory over O'Neill and Rothwell.

Glenn Bell was victorious on the National Hot Rods Ulster Championship, whilst Ballymena's Victor McAfee took victory in a closely fought Stock Rods Irish Championship.

Another Portadown driver, Jordan Rochford took victory in the Grand Final of the Lightning Rods 2ke Engineering Challenge series, whilst other winners at the Hankook Performance Tyres sponsored 'Hot Rod Heaven' meeting were Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods) and Thomas Dilly (Classic Hot Rods).
