Spedeworth Bangers are designed to be cheaper and simpler to prepare than their National Banger cousins, but the drivers will tell you they are no less fun to race.
The Banger formula is designed to tempt you, the spectator off the terrace and onto the track.
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, 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 banger" 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 in November!
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.
