2012 - #39 – Tullyroan Oval – 30/9/12
The second meeting in as many days, and another big banger day at Tullyroan as the unlimited’s rocked into town for their Nutshaker meeting.
It was what could best be described as an interesting day of trying to balance filming and video before eventually deciding the easiest thing to do was take photos on the Video camera, which worked up until the point I forgot I was videoing and started panning around looking for photos to take.

2012 - #38 – Ballymena Raceway – 29/9/12
There was a time that the last Friday in September seen the end of the F2 season and the end of my season, except perhaps a trip to the superbowl (while boat prices were reasonable) and you normally stood there going through the motions, foundered and not that disappointed to be honest. Up until Saturday while we haven’t had a great summer, we didn’t have too many wet meetings either for the most part of it and it has still been quite mild. This meeting all felt a bit end of season, a small crowd, and nothing special on the race programme and I’m not really sure why there wasn’t an F2 stadium championship this season.

2012 - #37 - Tullyroan Oval - 22/9/12
Due to work commitments, I hadn’t expected to have got to this meeting, I’m now writing this on Tuesday night and after 2 days of a horror show in work, perhaps in hindsight I should have settled for the DVD and worked on.

2012 - #36 - Tullyroan Oval - 16/9/12
This for me was one of the meetings I singled as one to really look forward to when I first saw the fixture list at the start of the season. The ProStock championships have become one of the jewels in the crown of local oval racing, ‘matches and dispatches’ has never failed to disappoint, while the F2’s are still the class I most look forward to seeing, throw in the Juniors and the Lightning Rods and it all made for a cracking meeting.

2012 - #35 – Ballymena Raceway – 14/9/12
On paper this looked like an excellent meeting, certainly one of the meetings when I read down the fixture list at the start of the season and had marked down as one I’d like to get to. With the sharing out of classes this season the F2’s and Nationals don’t seem to have been at the same meeting at Ballymena too many times, the Gp 2 Irish is normally a good race too.

2012 - #34 - Tullyroan Oval - 2/9/12
Another weekend, and another 2 days of racing, and this time back to Tullyroan for the second leg of the National Hot Rod weekend. For a while it seemed like quite a long time since I’d been anywhere but Tullyroan and up until today it seemed like quite a long time since I’d been to Tullyroan.

2012 - #32 – Ballymena Raceway – 25/8/12
The second day of the Ballymena Speed weekend and the “big night” for the Stock Rods.
We again got good weather, and this time the BriSCA F2’s and the ORCi Lightning Rods joined the Group 2’s in supporting the Stock Rods.

2012 - #31 – Ballymena Raceway – 24/8/12
Day one of the Ballymena Raceway Speed Weekend and 2012 Stock Rod World Championship.
Somehow when the rest of the country seemed to be getting rain it was dry at Ballymena, I’m certainly not complaining, I’m just more used to Stock Car racing being in the only place in the country it is raining.
I opted out of playing indoor football this week in order to be at Ballymena in time for the start, which was a bit odd for me not having to try and work out which races I’d missed and I even had to cue to get to get in and things like that, like normal people who arrive on time do.

2012 - #30 - Ballymena Raceway - 17/8/12
Thirtieth meeting of 2012 for me, and it I just picked up from where last week left off, still lacking enthusiasm for the racing, now starting to lack the enthusiasm for photography as well. It could be the extra hours spent travelling to Tullyroan this season, or the more frequent trips to the diesel pump, the extra hours on front of the computer editing videos, or just the mindset that there is far too many meetings here that I’d got into at the start of the season is really starting to take a toll. It’s all starting to feel like much more of a chore than a hobby or leisure time activity.
