The lightning Rods had their Challenge cup and with up to 10 cars on track it looked like we were in for a cracking nights racing. With (987)Francis Rafferty returning to Tipperary after a long break he was going to run off the back of the pack for the night not counting for the cup.

By lap 6 (679) Mark Gleeson had made his move into the top 5 and. Graham started to pull a slight lead with Gleeson making his way through the field into 2nd with Byrne, R McNamara following in tow. Graham had enough of a lead when the flag dropped followed by Gleeson, Byrne McNamara, A McNamara, and OBrien
Heat 2 saw Gleeson and OBrien front row and when the green flag dropped Gleeson was in front for turn one. With the rest of the pack fighting for third it gave these two a chance to get away and OBrien followed Gleeson moves on every part of the track for the whole race until the chequered flag dropped. While this went on 3rd was a close battle among all in the pack with Rafferty coming through followed by Graham, R McNamara and (676) Sean Ryan.

With that failing OBrien fell back in behind Graham again and stayed for a few laps which saw R Mc Namara 4th at this stage and Rafferty 5th. With Gleeson well in the lead OBrien made a second move on the outside of Graham again and it took a few laps side by side again but this time OBrien got ahead of Graham for 2nd.
