FORMULAS

Rookie Bangers
Rookie Bangers are a limited contact class, Don’t be misled though, the action and entertainment that these cars dish out is as entertaining as any other Banger formula, with big grids of cars seeing spin outs and roll overs in all directions. The Rookie Bangers are often the choice of Drivers just starting out in racing or coming from the Junior Formula and wanting to gain experience. Also includes experienced drivers who just want to have fun, this formula covers all ranges of experience.
The costs are kept as low as possible with minimum preparation i.e. the radiator is kept in its original position to minimize heavy contact. The cars are upto 1600cc or under 1800cc single cam 8 valve Astra, Cavalier, Sierra, Primera, Maximum size is Cavalier / Carina,
As well as novice drivers, there are plenty of racing stars in Rookie Bangers who love to try their luck on the fast Skeggy Tarmac
.
1300 Saloon Stock Cars
This Skeggy favourite, 1300 stock cars are a smaller but no less exciting version of the 2L Stock Cars, with bumpers front & rear, it’s a nudge & spin formula without the heavy contact. The fast close racing results in rollovers, spins and lots of bumper work. The cars are mainly 1300cc Novas or Astra, cars have steel rails on the outside of the body to protect the body panels from too much damage. A budget formula with the emphasis on keeping everything as standard. One of the highlights of the year is the UK Speedweekend in June and the Gold Roof Championship in August. Plenty of race dates on the fast Skeggy tarmac also at Buxton raceway which run to the same spec, also racing at Barford and Coventry.
GT Hot Rods
Skegness Stadiums own very popular GT Hot Rods non contact formula with fast close racing no deliberate contact is allowed, GT Hot Rods have the fastest cars starting at the back of the grid who have to hone their racing skills, it is an instant decision and spit second timing which will see drivers overtaking and racing door handle to door handle and move up the grid. Using mainly Astras, Novas, Corsa, up to 1400cc engines with limited tuning, front wheel drive, with arched and skirted body panels. An ideal formula to race on the wide bends and fast smooth Skeggy tarmac surface, and a real challenge for drivers of all ability’s. Large grids of cars produce some classic hot rod races. Around 20 race dates all through the year, and also some at Buxton Raceway.
MD Hot Rods
Skegness Stadium formula which started in 2010 and as the name suggests a class using only Mondeo’s in a non contact formula. A budget formula using readily available cars, An affordable way to get started on the race track if you prefer your racing as non contact. There are around 12-15 outings at Skegness. "Like Touring Cars but on Ovals". Close fast racing and these large cars look really impressive as they try to get to the front of the grid.
Junior Rods
The Junior Rods allow the younger generation to cut their teeth in motor racing. This is a fine formula for boys and girls to attempt to emulate their heroes & in lots of cases Dad. Kids between 11yrs & 16yrs take part using standard 1000cc Novas in non-contact racing. Many of the Junior drivers move up into Senior formulas, where you can always tell if they have gone through the Junior ranks once they get out there with the big boys. Ex Junior drivers are always more disciplined and better prepared to race in Senior formulas. An excellent training formula.

Banger Racing
BangerStox + 2L + Unlimiteds
These cars are definitely contact, with emphasise on moving the car in front out of the way by any means to gain an advantage. Often MOT failures given a last chance of survival, driven to the scrap yard via the race track. Rollovers, Big Crashes, Wrecked cars are all part of the racing. Several dates through the year for Bangers check the fixtures for details of Crashattack & Wreckfest the two main Banger dates at Skeggy.
Bangerstox 1600cc - Cavalier, Maxi.
2L Bangers Cortina, Capri, Montego, Mondeo
Unlimiteds - Granada, Jags, Volvos For further information www.skegness-stadium.info

Van Bangers
Van Bangers are what it says on the label, transit sized vans racing like Bangers, we have a special van banger meeting early in July each year, which always is a fun day with transit vans, ice cream vans, old black taxi all racing together to produce lots of mayhem on the track.

Banger & Caravan Destruction Derbys
If you have been on the roads around Skegness you will know all about cars towing caravans and how they hold the traffic up!!!. We have our own way of dealing with those by have a Destruction Derby with bangers towing caravans. Absolute mayhem as the caravans rock & roll behind the cars nearly tipping over, until som one gives them a big hit and then its bits of caravan debri flying everywhere.
We have Caravan DD’s on special events throughout the year check on the fixture list for when they are on.
Reliant Robins
During the summer we have numerous meetings featuring the crazy Robins, driven to destruction and lots of madcap rollovers you can be sure of some great action when these are in town, and you will be very surprised at how fast they actually are!
Brisca F1 Stock Cars
Brisca F1 Stock Cars are considered to be the King’s of the Oval Circuits. The roar of the Chevy V8 engines and the clash of the steel bumpers fitted front and rear, with up to 36 cars on the track in each race rock the Stadium.
Stars of the BBC Gears and Tears TV 2010 series battle it out like modern time gladiators with the awesome unlimited powered machines, where contact is encouraged.
Regular events are held at Skegness Stadium the highlight each year being the UK Championship Speedweekend held in May, two days of high speed racing featuring big cars on a small track!!!

Brisca F2 Stock Cars
Smaller than the F1 cars but no less spectacular, Brisca F2’s are open wheeled single seater space framed cars with 2L Ford engines. Bumpers front and rear which are used to remove the opposition out of the way. A mainstay of the racing season at Skegness Stadium, with around 25 race dates including the infamous UK Speedweek in July three days of hard fast racing with cars competing from Scotland, England, South West of England, Northern Ireland and Holland. Up to 35 cars on track in any one race sparks certainly fly in this superfast stock car formula.

2L Saloon Stock Cars
Mention Stock Car racing and we always think of the FULL contact 2L Saloon Stock Cars. Using Ford Sierra / Mondao / BMW as the donar car all running 2L Ford Pinto engines. These cars are fully armoured and the bumpers are used to push and shove the opposition out of their way, resulting in rollovers, spins as part of the race. The battle scars on the cars show how much contact there is in each race and these races are not for those people of a nervous disposition. Regularly racing at Skeggy, the highlight of the Saloon racing calendar is the UK Speedweek in July, three days of racing with entrants from North of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and England.

Mascars
The name of the cars perfectly describes this formula Minature American Stock Car Auto Racing. US Style Nascar racing in miniature. The wide bends and tight track at Skegness produce close and competitive racing with 3 and four cars abreast being the norm. Powered by Superbike engines these cars make a very welcome couple of guest appearances.

UK Modifieds
The UK Modifieds are oval track race cars that use modern high powered motorcycle engines which produce up to 200bhp, and in a car that weighs only 500kg's this makes them very fast indeed. To a newcomer these cars may look slightly odd at first sight, but this serves to make this class of oval motorsport stand out from the rest together with the amazing high revving roar of the engines when powering round an oval race track.

National Ministox
This is racing for the 10 – 15 years old. National Minis based on the Mini with a 1000cc engine with slight modifications, a fully welded steel chassis with heavy armour is used to protect the driver, many sons and daughters of current Stock Car Champions take part in this formula and despite the drivers only being kids, the action is as thick and fast as any other formula. Contact is allowed in the same way as adult formulas. Another training ground for future Senior Drivers, many of the drivers in the Brisca F1 Stock Cars started out in this formula.

V8 Hotstox
At first glance these cars may look like scaled-down BriSCA F1s but under the skin they are quite different and an excellent formula in their own right.
These cars are powered by powerful Rover V8 engines that emit a fine rumble as they lap the ovals, and these drivers are never afraid to use their front bumpers to great effect. The pilots are all very dedicated and determined and always ready to put on a great show.
The field of cars is split into 5 groups according to experience and points. Novices are graded 'White' and must have a white roof. The grades asscend as more points are scored, the next grade is Yellow followed by Blue, Red and Super Star grade. The Super Star grade have red roof's with amber flashing lights and are the most experienced drivers. Super Stars must start each race at the back of the field. Novices (White tops) start at the front followed by each grade.

Rebels
This is a contact racing series with the need for as little repair equipment as possible. Powered by a very reliable Reliant 850 all aluminium engine these little racers are quick and very competitive.

The replica 5/8th scale Ford Pop bodywork keeps the nostalgia alive, but the on –track action is very 21st century, with contact allowed but only to push and barge one’s way to the front, the safety record of the Rebel Class is second to none, They have all been factory built using premium quality materials that are designed to do the job

Performance is excellent, but the competition is fierce, with all cars having the same limited suspension system, and dyno checked and sealed power, skill determination and perhaps luck play a big part in any race win.

Stoxkarts
This is another kart based formula using specially fabricated kart chassis with the look of the traditional stockcar with its bumpers, nerfs and aerofoil, the aim of the game is to remove the driver in front, the formula has tightly controlled tyres and engines, there are lots of competitors and the action is second to none, there is also a junior class
