Another great nights racingat Tipperary
What a great nights racing at the Tipperary this evening. A low number of Junior Acompeted for the Thomas O'Sullivan Memorial Cup. This was off set by good fields of Productions, Stock Rods and Premier Rods.Again the weather gods looked after us with a dry sometimes warm evening.

Racing got underway with the Lightning Rods finishing off from last weeks shortened programme. 653 Eamon Byrne must have enjoyed the break as he soon hit the front and finished 1st just ahead of 179 Mark Gleeson then 602 Adrian McNamara in 3rd.670 Paddy Graham retired during the race with engine problems that kept him out for the rest of the evening. Eamon Byrne was flying in the 1st round of tonights schedule leading from lap 1 to the finish. 603 Mattie Treacy and 602 Adrian Mcnamara swopped places a number of times with Mattie getting 2nd place aheadof Adrian. Unfortunately 179 Mark Gleeson blew an engine, but was back for the final where he had a nip and tuck race with Eamon Byrne but this time it was Mark who took the win.

The juniors were split into their A and B classes for the night as the A's were competing for the Thomas O'Sullivan Memorial Cup. 5 cars started in heat 1 and following engine problems for 98 Sam Clein was a 2 horse race with 162 Ian Riordan and 460 Jack O'Donovan pushing each other hard for the win. 69 Billy Ryan and 184 Adam Browne the otther finishers. Heat 2 was a rerun of the 1st heat with Ian Riordan taking his 2nd win Jack 2nd and Adam taking 3rd. 98 Sam Clein was back for the final and tried to give Ian and Jack a hard time but was unable to split the Ian taking the win, Jack second and Sam third. 184 Adam Browne finished fourth. It was a pity we had so few cars competing for this normally well supported cup.

Adian Hallinan 262 was back out in his lovely lookig Micra after a heavy crash last time out in the Productions. With a field of 17 cars there was always going to be problems, especially in this hard fought class. It was nice to see a few new drivers back on the track, 741 Jonny Patterson trying out the ex Barry O'Dwyer car. The rebuild of 262 Aidan Hallinans car, by Jack Shanahan, paid of big time as he won the first heat. 11 Mike Howard was second and Kevin casey third. 98 Malcolm Clein who shares the car with his son Sam had fixed the mis fire and took the honours in heat 2 with Trevon O'Brien 124 second. 25 Declan McGrath took third.
The same 3 took the honours in an incident packed final that saw points leader Barry O'Dwyer shunted heavily into the wall just after turn 2, the car being badly damaged.
98 Malcolm Clein first, 124 Trevor O'Brien 2nd and 25 Declan McGrath third.

There was a good field of Stock rods on show this evening and the racing was close and fast. The newly returned Brendan O'Connell took a clean sweep on the evening, leading for most of the 3 races. In heat 1 45 Sean Condon was second with 192 Bill Daly in third. Heat 2 saw a rejuvinated 39 John Ramsey go second and no8 John O'Donovan third. 45 Sean Condon had a lucky escape when he rolled the car over at the start finish line. In the final 83 Alan McCormackraced hard from the back of the field to finish second.John O'Donovan 8 took third place for the second race in a row. Bill Daly 192 was fourth.

Just as Brendan O'Connell did a clean sweep, Premier Rod 92, Aidan Kennedy did the same. As we are coming to expect from the premier rods we had some very close racing. In heat 1 658 Emma Lyons started on pole and fought hard all the way but was unable to keep back Aidan kennedy and 721 Tony Burgess. Emma only lost out on the straights but was faster on the corners with the Tigras better handling. Heat 2 was almost a repeat of the first Emma kept Aidan behind her until 2 laps to got she went wide on turn 4 allowing Aidan through. In the final it was same again with 92 Aidan Kennedy passing Emma on turn 4 but this time 608 Cathal Morrisey and 13 Tony Kenny also got passed to take seond and third respectively.

6 National Hotrods competed for the points in round 4 of qualifying for 2015 world championship. 961 Tom Casey back racing after gearbox problems earlier came back with a storm this evening. In heat 1 he got passed 740 Ruaro Cooke before turn 1 and stayed in the lead all the way to the end. 955 Damien Mulvey 2nd place,970 Shane Murphy in 3rd with 261 David Casey 4th. These 3 fought door to door for he places. In heat 2 261 David Casey took the win, Damien Mulvey another 2nd and 961 Tom Casey 3rd. Daddy decided that in the final he would show the young lads how to win beating 261 David into second with 955 Damien Mulvey third. It was good to see 420 Eddie Wall back out giving his newly rebuilt car a decent shakedown.

9 cars were in the visitors class and saw 156 Gerry Rothwell back on track after his lucky escape during the Irish Grand Prix for Classic Hotrods when his beautiful little ford Poplar went on fire. The word is that the car is almost ready to race again and Gerry made a point of thanking the marshals who fought and extinguished the fire. 73 and 79 Philip and Andrew Brady gave a display of doughnuts after the last 2 races. The first race was won by 73 Philip Brady with 32 John Meenahan second. Joe Hegarty 219 in his new 1.3lt gave the 1600's a fright with his speed and handling taking third place. In the second heat Joe was able to hold of a charging James Ginty in the 1600 to take the win, 156 Gerry Rothwell took third. 724 James Ginty won the final with display of fine driving, 73 Philip Brady was second and 219 Joe Hegarty 3rd 961 Barry casey in his new stockrod was 4th and we want to wish Barry all the best in his soon to be move to Stock Rods.
