2012 is shaping up to be a fantastic season as we move to our brand new purpose-built facility at Tullyroan Oval, and we can now reveal the fixtures for the campaign ahead.
The highlight as always will be the annual Speedweekend on July 21st/22nd, which this year features European Championships for both the 2.0 Hot Rods and the Lightning Rods, as well as the Irish Open Championship for the ProStocks. Also on the bill that weekend will be the Irish Masters for the National Hot Rods, for which we hope to attract some visiting entries to add further spice to their racing at our biggest meeting of the year.
Other major events include the ProStocks British Championship on September 16th and an Irish Open Championship double header for the National Hot Rods and 2.0 Hot Rods on September 2nd. With our Reliant Robins now travelling across the UK to compete at the major events, the mainland drivers will visit us on August 12th for their Irish Open title decider too.
The National Bangers will also play their part in 2012, with Shamwreck on April 22nd and the Ireland v England challenge match on Saturday June 16th which this year will be fought out in unlimited cc machines for the first time. The June event is indeed a double-header, with the following day seeing the Unlimited Irish Open title decided. As well as the usual 2 Litre fixtures, there will also be meetings for Under 1400cc cars, the Big Vans at Christmas, a Caravan Destruction Derby in July and also the return of the ever-popular ‘Matches and Dispatches’ Hearse and Limo meeting in September.
The debut with our promotion in 2012 of the BriSCA F2 Stock Cars, Saloon Stock Cars and Gp 2 Lightning Rods will no doubt be welcomed by the local race fans, whilst we will also introduce mini-series for the Lightning Rods, ProStocks and Junior Productions to compliment the inaugural and well-received 2.0 Hot Rods Series last year. We thank Wash ‘n’ Dash, Murrays of Randalstown and P+C Aerials for their kind sponsorship of the series in the coming year.
Whilst every care has been taken in compiling the list, changes and amendments may be made at a later date, so please check back for confirmation before travelling.
Sponsorship opportunities are available on all our race meetings, and further details are available from Darren Black on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07980 630703
