National king Gary Woolsey eyeing a World challenge

By Staff Reporter

Published 07/08/2015

Newly-crowned National champion Gary Woolsey will aim to extend his winning streak when Ballymena Raceway hosts the opening round of the World Qualifying Series for Northern Ireland this evening.

National Hot Rod ace Woolsey lifted the prestigious National Championship at Hednesford Raceway in Staffordshire last weekend, with fellow Portadown racer Stewart Doak the runner-up and Broughshane teenager Jaimie McCurdy third on his debut appearance at the track.

It was a dominant show of strength from the province's drivers, with eight of the top 10 finishers from Northern Ireland.

A fine turnout is anticipated this evening (7.15pm) as the drivers begin their campaign to claim one of the nine slots available on the 2016 World Final grid.

European champion Adam Hylands, British champion Glenn Bell and Crumlin charger Adam Maxwell are all expected to be among the frontrunners, while former Two-Litre Hot Rod World Champion Wayne Woolsey makes his return.

F2 Stock Cars are also in action. Group Two Lightning Rods and Junior Rods complete the race programme.
