8 Things Oval Racing has lost since 2001
Since NIF2 is now into it's 16th season I thought it was worth having a look back at some of the things the sport has lost or you no longer see around the ovals anymore.

And the year was..... 2009
2009 seen the first staging of the Lightning Rod World final in Northern Ireland which was won by Stephen Emerson. Andy Best won the 2 Litre European at the Nuttscorner Oval Speedweekend, Wayne Woolsey retained the 2 Litre Hot Rod World final when it was staged at Hednesford.
Nutts Corner Shale Arena also came and went within the space of 3 meetings and the ProStocks arrived on the scene.

NI Promoters Websites - 10 Years Online
This weekend marks 10 years since the domain was first registered online. It's hard these days to look back and imagine a time that there wasn't promoters websites, but up until 2006 that was indeed the case.

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!

My Favorite Rods
As with the F2ís I sat down to pick out my favourite ďRodsĒ of all time and it wasnít just as easy as youíd think. By restricting it to cars Iíve actually seen race it eliminated a considerable amount of what other people would have considered their favourite rods.

My Favorite F2s
In upsurge in older photos being uploaded in recent months has made me have a think about what cars and car/ driver combinations I'd love to see back on track, and just what my favorite cars down the lines have been. I thought I'd start the journey with the F2's.

Speedweekend in Mono
As part of the process in putting together the Tullyroan Oval Speedweekend Programme, I convert some photos to mono and see what looks right on the page when it's converted. I don't work in mono a lot, I know some other togs do and I know that it's not rocket science to convert a photo these days or to even shoot in mono, but I thought I'd put a few shots together in mono of past speedweekends, so here they are....

A Decade Up For Davy
Ten years has now past since Davy McCall first started his promotion at Nuttscorner Oval following the closure of Shamrock Park at the end of 2002.
I know there has been other landmarks have passed in the time Iíve been running NIF2 and Iíve tried to cover them in some shape or form, but this is the first of the landmarks that began was later than the birth of NIF2.
