On Sunday 11th February we will be holding our Annual Registration Day & Auto Jumble at the track and this year will hold a practice day for all classes alongside it.

Registration fees will be unchanged this season. Applications will be online as they have been the last few seasons so the 11th will be an opportunity to collect your licence. Registrations forms will go live shortly – please keep your eyes open for notifications of this.

If you have anything to sell, please feel free to bring that along also and help any other racers out.
This year, we will also be running a practice day for all classes, for racers that have registered for the coming season.

The day will run from 11am to 3pm with practice charged at £10/car. Please note – there will not be a charge for brand new Juniors.

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.
