British Banger Racing.

British Banger Racing is a sort of combination of short dirt track racing and a demolition derby.  They race everything from Minis to Rolls Royces to big old American iron.




Among the heavier classes, the cars of choice seem to be American cars, limos, hearses and their British equivalents.  I've also selected "before" pictures in most cases since the object of the race is to destroy the car.  The "after" pictures are too depressing. 










Before...

...After

You can read more about Banger Racing here, but it's far more fun to watch it in action.  Here are a couple of videos for you to either enjoy, or cringe at.
