More Northern Ireland Backing
Portadown based Cirrus Plastics have renewed their deal to sponsor this season's DMC Race Promotions National Hot Rods Points Championship for a fourth consecutive season. The championship covers all the National Hot Rod meetings at Tullyroan Oval and Aghadowey Oval in 2017, including the international British Championship meeting in September.

She said Yes!
It’s certainly been a busy few months for us! Since the last meeting the car has been stripped down and put on a major diet (the same can’t be said for the driver though!). Every spare
bracket has been cut off and every component has been made as light as possible in the hunt to get the car as close to the magic 700kg as possible.
New sponsor for Ireland
Damien Brennan of Tipperary Raceway promoters OMI is pleased to confirm with the NHRPA a new title sponsor of National Hot Rod World Series Ireland.

Martin Kingston's first album of photos now in the Gallery. Drivers in all categories were voted for by their fellow drivers, fans, officials, teams and sponsors from all over the world through our website nationalhotrod.com and our Facebook pages. Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to recognise all the effort and skill on display this last twelve months in National Hot Rod racing, and to Tracy Killick who administered the poll.
National Hot Rod racing’s governing body, the NHRPA, is introducing a number of measures for 2017 to enhance and improve our spectators, fans and racers’ experience of a race meeting. The prime change is that the steward’s decision on a race result, and any penalties, on the day, will be final. Any driver disputing any verdict will retain the right to protest only against any penalty points issued, or against any ban which may ensue. The result as declared by the steward will however, once confirmed and announced, be final. nationalhotrod.com
