Bangers

The name Banger conjures up an impression of heavy contact racing, the 'rookie' Bangers however are an exception to this, being a 'limited contact' class.

The limited contact Banger formula is designed to tempt you, the spectator off the terrace and onto the track for the first time.

The cost and preparation are kept to a minimum in the Bangers. The cars used are all generally standard cars, with the radiator being kept within the engine bay preventing any 'heavy' contact, although there is still enough contact to keep the spectator interested!

Equally entertaining and interesting is the type of car that is used in this formula, where cars considered useless are resurrected and brought back into service.

So, why not give it a go and get that old Honda Civic off your front garden...!

The biggest race of the year for the Bangers is the World Championship which is held at Foxhall Heath Stadium, Ipswich on Saturday 18th November at 5pm!

We also run a 'Back to Basics' version of the formula at selected meetings across our family of Spedeworth/Incarace tracks. Rules are available via the 'Drivers Rules' section of the website.

Points Deductions


Drivers booking in for any Banger meeting, failing to cancel, and not showing up, will have the relevant points for that meeting deducted from their total – i.e. if they would have scored 10 points for being at that event they would have 10 points deducted.
