Winter Nationals at Raceway thumbnailBallymena Raceway: hosting the Winter Nationals on Monday, January 2. GB5214D P48

BALLYMENA Raceway ushers in the New Year with a five-formula festive feast of short circuit motorsport on Monday, January 2 (2pm).
Top of the Winter National bill is the McCarroll Plant Hire sponsored National Hot Rod Championship!
Also gracing the Showgrounds track wil be F2 Stock Cars, Stock Rods, Group Two Lightning Rods and Super Saloons.
Twelve months ago it was former World Champion Keith Martin who took the honours in the premier National Hot Rod division.
The Dungannon driver boasts a fine record in this particular event.
Local favourites such as Jaimie McCurdy, Carl Sloan and David Kernohan will all be hoping to get their name in the frame as well.
Meanwhile, the Stock Rod races are sure to be hotly disputed, with current World No. 1 Luke Oliver hoping to make the long journey over from his base in East Sussex to sample the Raceway action!
The locals will be keen to lay down a marker ahead of that World Final showdown later in the year, with Irish Champion Adam Sloan, Points Champion Jason Clyde, Aaron Moody and Steven McKane amongst those expected to figure strongly in the results.
F2 Stock Cars, Group Twos and Super Saloons complete the programme, with the first race getting underway in the Ballymena Showground's at 2pm.
