The name banger conjures up an impression of heavy contact racing, the 1600 bangers however are an exception to this impression being a 'limited contact' class.
The 'limited' banger formula is designed to tempt you, the spectator, off the terracing and on to the track for the first time.
While adhering to the limited contact rules, there is always action whenever the 1600 Bangers are in town!
Equally entertaining and interesting is the type of car that is used in this formula, where cars considered useless are resurrected and brought back into service.
Back 2 Basics bangers at Lochgelly Raceway also fall under the Rookie Banger category, although run to a different specification of rules.
National Points run from World Final to World Final, and from 2021-22, the cut off being 1 month before the actual World Final date. This is to give drivers time to prepare for the World Final, and know who the qualifying drivers will be. This will be for the 1600 World Final at Spedeworth. There will be 15 bonus points awarded for each driver that is booked in, and races.
