Welcome to Standlake Arena

Our aim is to provide a fair days racing for as many people as possible in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Any car past its prime can have one final fling round the Standlake oval, whether you want to race or crash there is a class here for you.

There are various non-contact classes and then there’s the Bangers, Bangers and more Bangers at every meeting. Last years average was 74 Bangers per meeting, with the emphasis on FUN you can race anything from a Mini to a Roller, just check the fixtures page for cc limits at individual meetings.

We have a large pit area and spectators can park around the track on the raised banking to watch from the comfort of their cars.


23 meetings are held throughout the year, on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays with 12 Noon start times. About 30 races are run at each meeting with an average 150 racers competing at each event. There is usually a good turnout of Bangers with an average of 50 – 60 cars at each meeting. The Junior class is also well attended with around 30 cars at most meetings.    

We are also the holders of what to our knowledge is a national record with 266 Banger cars in attendance at our Heavy Metal Classic on 2nd January 2005. The Heavy Metal Classic meetings are now recognised as the biggest Banger meeting the Country sees each year.

Visiting banger drivers are welcome at any meeting.

    Went to a learn2drift day and it was fantastic. Great instructors, got quite a bit of time on track with a lot of free reign compared to the supercar ones where you have to drive like a granny! Had a great laugh, had some good photos taken and the wife got some passenger laps in as well
