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.

  • Nice day out. Whole family loved it and enjoyed being able to wonder around the track freely. Kids still playing lego banger racing 2 weeks after!

    Great place to visit and sense of community, only downsides are no card payments onsite for entry or food, lack of road signs to the slip road for the arena, great otherwise

    We went to Standlake for the first time today. Everything was really well organised, the ticket system worked well, the races were very quickly organised which kept everything running really smoothly. It was great to spend some time in the fresh air, and with everyone abiding by social distancing rules it made us feel very safe there. Definitely coming back soon!

    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

    Wow, so we saw a post on FB about Standlake Arena. Coming from Milton Keynes took us a little over an hour. Was little frustrated due to lack of signage but after asking locals we got there in the end. We thoroughly enjoyed our day there today, watching the cars drift around the track and seeing the car people have brought to display. A nice feel of community there with everyone sharing their passion of cars. Will definitely visit again.
