Cash Entertainer Awards throughout the evening.
Further details to follow.
The winner of the evenings Showdown race will win £500. At Foxhall Stadium any driver who can win the World Qualifier race and double up by winning the Showdown race as the only car that crosses the line will win an impressive £1500!!

|Wimbledon 29th January 2017 BWS Round 1
The Banger World Series for 2017 kicks off at Wimbledon Stadium once again with what will be the last BWS Unlimited National Banger meeting at the iconic London Venue.
This is always a great occasion to look forward to as the one of the biggest meetings of the National Banger calendar, as well as one of the biggest and best spectacles here at Wimbledon Stadium but sadly this will also be the last. As with the previous years, Round 1 will be held at the Plough Lane venue of Wimbledon Stadium, a fantastic opportunity to hear the roar of Unlimited National Bangers around the enclosed venue.
This for many is where the road to gold begins, with vital World Qualifying points on offer and of course, customary with the Banger World Series a golden ticket into the World Final race itself going to the winner of the meeting final with a Wildcard spot. However even with all this up for grabs do not expect it to be all about racing as the BWS Rounds have a habit of producing some great crashing action, especially at Wimbledon as it has the added spice of drivers being allowed to turn around and attempt to stop their opponents as they pass. The meeting is set to once again be a night not to be missed for racing fans, especially for National Banger fans, as a packed track of Unlimited cars under the floodlights battle each other around the tarmac doing their best to avoid the infamous post and rope fence which has claimed many a victim over the stadiums illustrious history.
Make sure you do not miss another chance to experience the unique atmosphere that can only be felt at Wimbledon Stadium for a night of great racing!
Racing starts at 5.30pm and don’t forget rain or shine Wimbledon Stadium is fully enclosed for spectators and offers superb views from the covered grandstands indoors or out.
Cash Entertainer Awards throughout the evening.
The winner of the evenings Showdown race will win £500. At Wimbledon Stadium any driver who can win the World Qualifier race and double up by winning the Showdown race as the only car that crosses the line will win an impressive £1500!!

|WORLD SERIES BANGERS BACK WITH A BANG
THE BIGGEST names in National Banger racing are coming to Birmingham, and a World Final place is up for grabs at the latest round of the Banger World Series.
The Bordesley Green venue is well known as one of the best tarmac tracks for Banger action in England, and a host of the top names from across the country will be in attendance. The format will see the field split into two half car heats before an all in Final where the winner receives a wild card place in the big race at Ipswich, this then being followed by the big money Showdown race for all available cars that can still run.
Expect the DWO and Grey and Black teams to be out in force as they continue their seemingly relentless team war, most likely at the wheel of bizarre Toyota Previa and Ssangyong Rodius MPVs. Those racing for World Final places will have to dodge the warring factions as best they can, with 331 Jason Jackson and the Hughes brothers likely to be among the favourites for wins while the Scrapyard Screamers and the McPhilimey brothers will lead local interest.
The Classic Hot Rods race in support, and they recently enjoyed an entertaining if rather destructive National Championship at the Ipswich Spedeweekend. Ireland’s 976 Clive Richardson won the title and it is hoped he will bring his Leslie Dallas-liveried Escort over the water again for its first appearance at Birmingham, while favourites for victory on the night should include Bill Morris Memorial Trophy winner 8 Darren Owen, brother 88 Dave and 144 Tim Foxlow with his ultra smart new Escort. Away from the Ford hordes, local interest is provided by the little Austin A35 of 257 Andrew Willis while 44 Kara Boyd will showcase her smart Wolseley 1500 alongside 45 Craig’s Austin A40s.
Stock Rods complete the programme, with 669 Ed Trofer and the Morris brothers looking to continue their winning ways from across the 2016 season. 900 Dave Patterson recently took his first win of 2016 at Hednesford, while teenage sensation 97 Jack Bradburn failed to finish all three races on that occasion and will look to turn his fortunes around. Others to look out for include points champion 876 Jack Bradburn and any Scottish visitors who may be tempted to make the trip, while 369 Harry Sargent will certainly stand out if he races his rare booted Nova.
|BWS Round 5 @ BWR - Start Money
The fifth round of the 2016 Banger World Series returns to Birmingham Wheels for the first time in several years and we’re back to the unlimited cc class for this event.

|Banger World Series Here!
‘Wednesday Night is Race Night’, so let’s go racing at Arlington Stadium, Eastbourne, for another action packed meeting at this famous venue. Spedeworth / Incarace Motorsports presents another meeting Everyone’s been waiting for, counting the days and at last Round 4 of the Unlimited National Banger World Series is upon us to no doubt produce another ‘barnstormer’ of a meeting as the highly entertaining Drivers of National Bangers head into town to compete and qualify for their World Championship to be staged at Foxhall Stadium, Ipswich on Saturday 8th October later this year!
Once again Arlington Stadium, hosts another ‘biggie’ of the year for National Bangers and there is no doubting, whether you are a casual race fan or a “die hard” Banger fan, this is one meeting you simply would not want to miss if the meeting is anything like the previous Rounds have been!
London’s Wimbledon Stadium, Foxhall Stadium, Ipswich and Yarmouth Raceway a few weeks back have been terrific meetings with pits bursting with huge entries of cars and terrific racing that had the ‘full – house’ crowds cheering and going home having been very entertained!
This is where the road to gold continues, with vital World Qualifying points on offer and of course, customary with the Banger World Series, - a golden ticket into the World Final race itself going to the winner of the meeting final with a Wildcard spot. However even with all this up for grabs do not expect it to be all about racing as the BWS Rounds have a habit of producing some great crashing action, it certainly did at Wimbledon, Ipswich and Yarmouth as it had the added spice of drivers being allowed to turn round and attempt to stop their opponents as they pass. The meeting is set to once again be a night not to be missed for racing fans, especially for National Banger fans, as a packed track of Unlimited cars under the floodlights battle each other around the tarmac doing their best to avoid the infamous Steel Armco Safety Fence which has claimed many a victim over the stadiums illustrious history!
It will be a feast of National Banger Motorsport as the perfect entertainment to continue the racing season here at this historic venue.
Banger Fans will be well catered for at Arlington in 2016 with, for the second year running, we stage for Charity, The Unlimited ‘Bears Big Bash’ on Saturday 16th July which was a massive event in 2015, Plus The Unlimited National Bangers Classic Carnage Meeting on Saturday 13th August!
Adding to the evening’s action we have a visit from the very popular 2.0Ltr Hot Rods who are racing in Round 8 of their 2016 Hoosier Racing Tyre Series, to whom again we thank for their continued Sponsorship of the Formula in 2016. The Formula has not visited Arlington this season yet so if its dry , will hope to have a superb evenings racing of high speed action. The preparation, handling and speed of these cars has never been better than current, so definitely a formula to watch. Recent wins have gone the way of Damon Wellman and Tyler Wilkin with Scott Morgan taking two consecutive Ipswich Grand Finals, whilst National Points Leader, Dan Smith took a convincing Midland Championship title up at Hednesford a few weeks back to underline his dominance on the formula right now!
No doubt, we will be watching a ‘who’s who’ of the formula including the aforementioned Smith, with Damon Wellman, Tyler Wilkin and both English and Winternational Champion, George Turiccki. Expect these four Drivers to be racing door to door with National Champion, Gavin Botfield, Paul Wright and Sean O’Leary in what should be another ultra – competitive evenings racing! As it stands at present, Martin Codling leads the Hoosier Series from Duane Peacock, Tyler Wilkin and Paul Wright.
