Registration Day – Sunday 5th February

L2D Public Drift Days UK are on site for another public drift day for anyone with a RWD car.

  • We will be on site also for people to collect licences and discuss any questions they may have for the coming season.
  • There will be catering facilities on site through the day.
  • There will be several pauses through the day in the drifting for any NEW Juniors & Teen Streets to have a bit of track time.

Over the hour lunch break and for 30 minutes at the end of the day we will also run a practice session (not open to bangers). Please note – L2D run a wet surface so these sessions will be on a wet track.

There will be no charge for New Juniors or Teen Streets however anyone attending for the practice sessions will be charged £10. Racers wanting to take advantage of this practice session will need to book in with me in advance – numbers will be restricted.

Hope that covers everything, any questions please ask – we look forward to seeing you in our Ruby Anniversary season.

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.
