It's all systems go for the new Stock Car racing season at Ballymena Raceway on Friday when the opening fixture blasts off at 7.15pm.

Top of the bill on Good Friday is Round Eight of the National Hot Rod World Qualifying Series with a fierce battle raging to determine the drivers who will represent the province in this year's World Final.

Mark Heatrick occupies top spot in the rankings at present, but only 16 points separate the leader and Keith Martin in fifth. A further seven qualifying rounds will be contested over the coming weeks.

Completing the programme are the Stock Rods, Group Two Lightning Rods and Junior Rods. The Stock Rod men will contest the 2016 Yokohama Championship, currently held by Ballymena's Steven McKane.

The GP2 drivers will compete for the Challenge Cup, while the young chargers will battle for the Top Teen Trophy.
