McCurdy take Hat Trick as Bell takes Title
Iíll start by setting the scene for this report, Iíve an awful lot still to do before going to Tullyroan and I donít have enough time to do it in. I could write this piece after the racing, during some of tonightís races or tomorrow, but Iíll have enough to do then too.
SoÖ.. going into this meeting I had expectation in my head that it would all be about the National Hot Rods and Thunder Rods, everytime I see a pic of a Junior at the minute itís for sale and the only time I see a lot of the DMC 1300s is when Iím flicking through photos from earlier in the year. Iíd say I was pleased to say I was right, but Iíd rather have been wrong and had something to watch between the Nationals and the Thunder Rods. I do hope the Juniors pick up for next season and I do hope some sense prevails on the 1300s and they can either race at both promotions and reach their potential.

Moving on to the racing itself, the Nationals were on top form as they have been all year, for me (even as a contact racing fan) the Nationals have been the class of the year with the Superstox close behind them, the difference possibly being that the Nationals have more meetings and can race at more tracks which creates more variation. Jamie McCurdy for the second week running took a hat-trick of wins and took the PC Paints and Components sponsored driver of the meeting and a tyre, while Glenn Bell topped the DMC points chart picking himself up a nice trophy and a set of tyres care of Cirrus Plastics.

In the Thunder Rods there was an opening heat win for Del McLaughlin before Mark McLaughlin made a bold last bend move to take heat two and #2 won the final.

Graham Fegan won the Junior final, Ivan Elliott won all three 1300 races.
