On the subject of health and safety in banger racing, check out the below video from 1990 and watch for the roll over during the race. Notice how the race carries on whilst other drivers and the marshels get the driver out. 1 bad hit and that driver is in bigger trouble.

Now days the red flags come out as soon as a car is off it's wheels. but back then I guess it was just considered a danger and a part of the race.
 
Start watching at the 5:54 mark.


1 thing I do notice about today's banger racing though is that people pile into dead cars alot more. To me it just seems a waste of a car, for me contact and wrecking is all about removing opponents from the race, a dead car is already out of the race. I guess that is just me though, crowds seem to be amazed by jacking trains.

I went to the "Foute Cross" in Lopik. Didn't catch really spectacular crashes on camera but still fun to watch I guess.
Also, caravan bangers at the end. Wreckfest with caravans would be so awesome :D

Depends if theres points or a title on line, Red flag,clear blockage, restart if there is. If less then 5 laps, race is called.
If its non points its usually just run until drivers clear path,will eventually red flag if not turned into a DD or clear passage.

I traveled over [from Ireland] to Heinegone. One of the best Banger meetings I've ever been to, or will likely go to in the near future! The Pre-75 race had a 14 odd car jacking train - some moneys worth of car in their day too I'd imagine ha!

Nice,little stevo's car was nothing short of epic.Surprised he managed to get more than one race out of it aswell. Cant imagine 1940's rolls royce spares are easy to come by,i assume it might have had jag running gear on it...?
Quite a few of the online bangers keyboard heroes were there (not that i met up with anyone), but you might have seen me and my posse sat on our fishing stool/rucksacks on turn 4.

Siamese banger racing.
The car on top is a micro banger and controls the steering, the bottom car is a standard banger and controls the pedals.
They get a suprising amount of speed and still wreck pretty well.

They are featuring at Mildenhall this weekend, which my brother is taking part in. He did the event last year, the jacking train in the consolation race was really entertaining to watch.



This isn't a suggestion for Wreckfest by the way, although would be funny :P

ye theres a few spectacle racing modes they could introduce for co op racing. Side by side chain racing,rear-front chain racing,siamese bangers. I watched a double fronted banger race once aswell,driver sat at front and rear with 4 wheel steering and 1 engine.
