National Hot Rods

The fastest formula on the UK ovals, these specialised and highly tuned hatchbacks and coupes are among the most professional setups in UK oval racing and are the elite non-contact class

A true spectacle of the ovals, the speeds these cars can achieve in such a confined space has to be seen to be believed. The drivers are amongst the most skilful and talented on the ovals, circulating just millimetres apart at full tilt with no room for error.

National Hot Rod racing has created countless legends of the ovals in the past, including George Polley and Barry Lee to name just two. Cut to the 21st Century, and the cars are more akin to circuit racing machines with every milisecond counting on the stopwatch when it comes to fending off rivals to pass the finish line in first place...

Built on specially designed spaceframe chassis, powered by race-tuned 16-valve engines and running on bespoke racing slick tyres - these high speed racers might look like road cars but that's where the similarity ends!

Many top Hot Rod drivers past and present have become household names in motorsport and many have gone on to British Touring Car Racing and plenty of other circuit racing classes, describing their time on the ovals as key in learning the best racecraft.

The National Hot Rod World Championship takes place every year at Spedeworth's Foxhall Heath Stadium, Ipswich at the annual Spedeweekend where only the best driver can win the gold!

Another major highlight of the Oval Racing calendar is the annual National Championship Weekend at Hednesford Hills Raceway - with the National Hot Rod circus descending on the home of Hot Rod Racing for a festival of Oval Racing across 3 days.

A brand new National Hot Rod can be built from scratch by our sister company Spedeworth Fabrications. For more details call 01252 322934

National Hot Rods provide large grids and incredibly close racing at tracks around the country throughout the year. The events, speed, skill and style have to be seen to be believed, so find their next event below!
