That vid is crazy!

Does that 'Banger Racing' only take place in Europe? That looks pretty cool/fun and would sweet to do.
yea, pretty sure is just a european thing, most of em just go out there to wreck each other, as you can see from the video, they follow one another in....the american version is enduro racing, but most american cars dont fold like a pop can.
Well it looks more fun to follow another guy in rather then run from them lol. Looks pretty sweet, some of them do seem to crumple alot and you wonder if anyone gets hurt. I'd love to (and hope to) do derbys and enduro racing (this year if lucky), always thought they looked like fun.
two guys let there girlfriends run thier cars in a field. ones a 72 caprice the others a 74 gran fury. the caprices throttle sticks and the furys trans gets broke all in one hit. this clip sucks.
redline baby!!! not much here just some guy over revin his motor lol!
just found this stuff and thought it was interesting. htis is what banger
racings roll cage consists of. ill copy and paste everything.....
This is a typical banger roll cage also called the "H-FRAME" - these are the main piece of safety equipment. They bolt in through the roof and the floor behind the driver's seat - a small gas tank is mounted on the frame and the batteries go in a box or on a tray mounted to the frame. The plates on the ends of the cross bar stop the doors collapsing. Designs vary according to driver preference. This particular H-frame is adjustable for width and height so it can be used in different size cars. A good frame will last you years.
This shows the view inside the car of a fitted H-FRAME - the seat is chained or tied to the frame and often also to the driver's door B-post to stop it deforming. The standard seat belts are replaced with a race harness.
The driver's compartment is the most heavily strengthened area of the car. A large plate goes over the door and is bolted thru both door pillars, another plate bolts into the floor, and there are also often clamps around the door frames and a load of welding. In conjunction with the H-frame this causes the car to bend round the driver - there is a lot more to banger prep than that, but that's the basic principle
This car was well prepared and when it received the "big one" it bent round the driver who got out perfectly unharmed.
I'll do a website one day for you guys who are interested in the detail of a banger build - it is certainly very different to how you do things for a lot of your derbies.
Additional safety equipment we always use that I think you guys don't always use:
- Fireproof overalls
- Dry powder fire extinguisher
- 4 or 5 point race harness
- Emergency fuel cut off valve
- Emergency electrical cut-out switch
I've been interested to read about these "mouth gaurds" some of you wear - not something we do over here - never even seen it suggested before
How about just a football helmet? :laughing:
Good idea, making a website...if you do, let me know...I will probably be doing derbies after getting my license, and feel comfortable ramming people at full speeds, with cars that have massive engines :laughing:
guy (82) had to video tape them off his tv......
heres one i posted along time ago....couple women going crazy in the parking lot. just for the record, id put my money on the tempo if they were in an arena.....4 cyl class of course....
first video by this guy so it really sucks. but here it is a little
pacers kickin ass...
There's an old banger racing game you can download for nothing... its about
It was done about 5 years ago as a conversion of "Carmageddon" by some computer studies students for their university project.
There are lots of American cars on here - all of which are computerised versions of real cars that were banger raced - all the driver's names, cars and colour schemes are replicas of real banger drivers.
Controls are the same as Carmageddon:
forward - numberpad 8
back/brake - numberpad 5
left - numberpad 4
right - numberpad 6
hand brake - spacebar
in-car view - c
recover car - numberpad DEL
repair car - numberpad 0 (you cheater!)
It's out of date and it isn't really an accurate sim of banger racing in a lot of ways, but hey it's FREE and I still think it's good fun - 90% of the "races" you can win by wrecking everything else and being the last man running, but a few of them you have to actually beat the clock.
You need to use the handbrake to get round a few of the tracks quickly.
You can pull off some huge "follow ins" on this game!!!
IF THIS WON'T WORK ON YOUR COMPUTER - please don't ask me why, I won't know. Cars are my thing, not Windows!
Older versions of XP apparently need this patch...
and apparently this makes the game work better...
There are some more cars here:
And the thing you need to install them is here:
I don't know if any of this works, I have just found the links on a British website but they may help some of you out?
For those who have not managed to get it to work, heres a couple of screen shots from the www.marcsbangers.com site which currently hosts the game download

Lol. I have this game I think. Is it called Demo derby? I found it on the 5.99 rack like 5 yrs ago.
