The 'National' Bangers as the name suggests is a full contact, crashing formula. This is the last stop on the line that leads to the car crusher for somebody's one-time pride and joy, which has generally failed the dreaded MOT test!
Needless to say this formula is not only a contact formula but it is actively encouraged, the big cars like Ford Granadas, Volvos, Jaguars and now Supras & Lexus are the preferred weapons, and the action at times can be very heavy. Destroying the opposition is often the preferred objective rather than actually winning the race you've just entered.
The name Bangers, lends itself to many types of automobiles, Big Vans, Figure of 8, team racing and even caravans all get a chance, whilst the lower engine capacity limits on a number of the meetings throughout the season give the chance for the smaller fry to perform without getting their prize blitzed by the big stuff!
The biggest night of the year goes to Foxhall Stadium, where the traditional Banger World Final takes place at the Ipswich venue in October.
2019 also sees the continuation of the popular National Banger World Series with 7 top quality rounds of full contact racing at some of our tracks and those of our sister companies, Incarace & Mildenhall Stadium - the prize at each round for one lucky driver being a place on the grid for the National Banger World Final at Ipswich in October!
