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.

    thumb Andy Hayes

    Fantastic day out. Banger racing with a caravan demolition derby.... what's not to like? Arrived as the gates opened. Parked trackside. Facilities were basic, but expected nothing more.

    thumb Giles Woodland
  • 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!

    thumb Jack Bond

    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
