Van Bangers Coming on August Bank Holiday!

Van Bangers – Monday 26th August

Morning all, just an update on the Van Bangers for this season, eligibility and build spec and also to confirm we welcome T&B Motors – Licensed Vehicle Recycling Centre as a sponsor for this year’s event.

This year, sizes permitted will be from Astra Van sized up to Transit sized.
Build for them will be in line with Back to Basic prep, however we will allow a bulkhead water tank and sensible engine swaps (within the manufacturers range) where required – if unsure, please check with me in advance.
Engine guards will not be permitted.
On the day, the class will be run to B2B rules with the emphasis on a fun day for the huge Bank Holiday crowd this meeting attracts.
Any questions, please ask and we’ll see you there!

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. We average 50 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 11am 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 25 cars at most meetings.    

We also held 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.
