Racing this Saturday
We are back racing on Saturday 11th August at 5 pm. What a day of racing we had on our last day. All the thrills and spills and that was only the Juniors. The demolition had to be stopped due to a driver being injured and taken to hospital. I am glad to report that both of the drivers who were taken to hospital suffered bumps and bruising. Thanks to the treatment at trackside by the Cashel Red Cross. Little be known but the crew who took the demolition driver to STGH did not get out of the hospital until after 11pm. Hopefully they will have less to deal with this Saturday.
STOCK RODS SPONSORED BY McGRATH MOTORSPORT. Back from his brave exploits in Hednesford Anthony McGinty #36 will be hoping to increase his lead over William O’Donovan #10 which is only 8 points, both drivers having scored well in every round so far. John Shanahan #15 is in third place 62 points further back. Ger Russell #23 is forth on 84 and Owen McGrath #851 is next on 81 points.
LIGHTNING RODS SPONSORED BY SEAN RYAN AGRI SERVICES. Things are close at the top of the table with Mark Gleeson #679, fresh back from the U.K., on 148 and Anthony Crosbie #493 on 146. David Connolly #644 is third with 121. The only other driver with a three figure tally is Tony Kenny on 100. Let’s hope for a good grid of the big Fords on Saturday evening.
CLASSIC HOTRODS SPONSORED BY TONY FORREST. There is a tie at the top of the table with Anthony Morgan #19 and Trevor Cussack #25 in their MK2 Escorts having 94 points apiece. #464 Mike Meade is third on 85. Hopefully we get some of the DMC drivers down to make for even greater racing than already seen from the Classics.
PRODUCTIONS SPONSORED BY STEPHEN O’SHEA ROLL CAGES AND RACE PREP. The size of the grids and the hard racing of the Productions has been superb so far this season. We have had 25 different cars out on track and it would be great to have them all out on track together. Graham Nelson #95 leads the way on 106 points followed closely by Sean Lynch #87 on 104 points. Jamie Bowen #370 is 5 points back on 99. Michael Russell #38 is fourth on 84. As previously said a full grid would be great.
PREMIER RODS SPONSORED BY WESTON ELECTRICAL CLONMEL. Premier rods were introduced as an entry level class to give persons wanting to race a reasonably cheap way in. They have provided some great racing recently after the start which some thought was banger racing. Joe Fitzgerald #77 leads the table on 195. Paddy Boland #30 is second on 141. Brian Fennessy #386 is third on 121 followed in fourth by Kieran Burke #656 with 98. Our sole lady racer in the premiers is Susan Meenehan #832 in 9 place on 56 points.
OPEN CLASS FWD SPONSORED BY LOCK DOCTOR. The FWD’S provides an outlet for those who still have an old class 3 1300cc and others. John McElligot #51 in his red machine sits atop the table on the perfect score of 120. Dan Moloney #10 is second with 105 points Daniel O’Sullivan #390 is third well behind with 53 points. #582 Gavin Mullally in his Micra is fourth on 51 points.

half term report
As we are enjoying the Mid-Season break let us look at the points championships are going.
CLASSICS. SPONSORED BY TONY FORREST. Anthony Morgan (19) and Trevor Cusack (25) are both on 94 points in their MK2 Escorts. In 3rd place is Mike Meade (464) with 85 points followed in 4th place by Adrian Boyle (195) on 41 points. Liam Bushe (99), Thomas Dilly (966), Andy O’Donnell (175), Joel Richardson (97), Alan Lenard (671), Mike Oliver (57) and Clive Richardson (976) make up the rest of the class. There are 3 more rounds left in the points championship and of course the big Classics race the Irish Grand Prix on the weekend 6th/ 7th October.

JUNIORS. SPONSORED BY McNAMARA MOTORSPORT. With 5 rounds left it is very tight at the top. Cathal McGivern (887) has a one point lead over Eoghan Burke (12). Evin Harding (199) is third a further 38 points back. In fourth spot is the first of our female drivers Lisa Nelson (895).The top five is finished by Colleen O’Sullivan. So far this season the grids have been good with a total of 24 different drivers competing.

PREMIER RODS SPONSORED BY WESTON ELECTRICAL. The entertainment by the Premier Rods so far this season has been, on the whole, first class. Regular racing and points scoring is the main reason the leaders are at the top of the table. Joe Fitzgerald (77) is in the top spot on 169 points. Paddy Boland (30) is just 33 points behind in second. Kieran Burke (656) is next in line. A total of 20 cars have been on the grid this year.

PRODUCTIONS SPONSORED BY SOS ROLL CAGES AND RACE PREP. We have seen a number of new builds in Productions this year. Having 7 more points races left it is fairly open at the top. Sean Lynch (87) is in the lead on 104 points. Michael Russell (38) is close behind on 84points. Former Stock Rod driver Graham Nelson (95) is third with 80 points. In total we have 24 drivers competing this year, averaging 12 each race day.

STOCK RODS WITH VARIOUS SPONSORS. Although we have 15 drivers registered in the class the weekly turnout has been low. The top two drivers have a large lead over the rest of the field. Anthony McGinty (36), having scored points in every race, leads on 157 points followed by William O’Donovan (10) on 149. William has also scored in every round. John Shanahan, who has stepped up from Productions, is third on 87 points. If anyone is to catch the leaders they need to score well in the remaining 6 rounds.

2LTR HOTRODS SPONSORED BY FRANKIE POWER ELECTRICAL. There is a tie at the top of the leader board. Declan Duffy (436) and John Sinclair (752) have 121 points each. Eric Wakefield (947) is third in the total of 10 cars in the class. Rumours are strong that at least two more cars will be joining the class soon.

LIGHTNING RODS SPONSORED BY VARIOUS PEOPLE. The Lightning Rods have 5 rounds left in their championship and it is close at the top. Mark Glesson (679) on 148 leads by 2 over Anthony Crosbie (493) It is good to see Anthony having a good run after a couple of big wrecks in the last three years. David Connolly (644) is third on 121 points. Tony Kenny (13) is fourth on 100 points. Hopefully we will see all 12 registered drivers out on the one day.

OPEN CLASS RWD SPONSORED BY LOCK DOCTOR. In the first year since the open class was split between fwd and rwd to have 8 cars competing is very good. Donal Linehan (732) leads on 110 points. Drew Russell (333) is second on 68 points. Barry Barrable (98) is third back on 53 points.

OPEN CLASS FWD SPONSORED BY LOCK DOCTOR. Most of the cars are old class three runners. John McElligot lads in his very fast Starlet with 120 points. Dan Moloney (10) is next on 105 followed by (390) Daniel O’Sullivan. A total of 10 cars are registered in the class.

NATIONAL HOTRODS SPONSORED BY ADVANCE PITSTOP. The Nationals have been the backbone of oval racing for a number of years and hopefully will continue to be so. The track points championship is being led by Jeff Riordan (925), who will have been to the world championship by the time you read this, on 158 points followed by David O’Regan (208) on 119 points David is doing a balancing act between the National and a successful run in Pick up racing in the U.K. Third place is held by Damien Mulvey (51) who is also going to the world championship.

All the figures are based on information on MYLAPS. We hope to see everyone back at Tipperary Raceway for the second half of the season starting off with the meeting on 29th July which includes a demolition derby.
