There was more success for local National Hot Rod racer Jaimie McCurdy last weekend when the sixteen year old from Broughshane was voted best Newcomer for 2014.

McCurdy topped the recent poll of National Hot Rod fans and was presented with his award during the prestigious Autosport International Racing Car Show at the NEC in Birmingham last weekend.

McCurdy has only a handful of appearances in the elite National Hot Rod division under his belt, but has caught the eye with this an impressive string of results that includes winning the Pat Canavan Memorial Trophy at Tipperary Raceway and victory in the Winter National Championship on his last outing at Ballymena Raceway.

JUNIOR F2 STOCK CARS

A new class will be added to the Ballymena Raceway roster in 2015 with the introduction of Junior F2 Stock Cars.

The new class for kids is open to 6-11 year olds and is very much a fun formula with the emphasis on safety, participation and enjoyment. All the cars are built to an identical specification and will be powered by a pre-sealed 7hp engine, with fixtures at both Ballymena Raceway and neighbouring Nutts Corner currently being finalised for 2015. Further information on the Junior F2 Stock Cars can be received by contacting the Raceway promotion via email: bmrovalracing@yahoo.co.uk or by telephone on (028)25645733.

DRIVER MEETINGS

Drivers meetings have been organised for the Stock Rod (7.30pm)and Euro Stocks (8.30pm) classes on Wednesday 14th. January 2014 at the Ramble Inn.
