Bangers and Smash! - Great Yarmouth Stadium

We took a trip to see the Banger Racing, Rookie Rods and Superstox at Great Yarmouth Stadium on Sunday 26th May 2019.

Lots of amazing action, brave or perhaps crazy drivers and a lot of twisted metal.

Highlight were the Unlimited Bangers which was full of very large Mercs being turned into much shorter Mercs.

There was a serious incident that needed the fire service to attend but thankfully the driver was able to walk away once cut out.

A riveting spectacle I'm sure and well presented shots.

Re: Bangers and Smash! - Great Yarmouth Stadium

A great series & action nicely captured, but I also like the last one where someone has to clean up after it all.

There was a great deal of cleaning up during, actually not much after the National Unlimited Bangers. During was mostly sweeping liquids into the gutters - surprising how few popped radiators there were.
It seems like you can pull off or weld on more or less everything on a Mercedes E class and it will put up with being squished into the size of a ford focus and remain mobile. At one point one was rattling around with the front wheels at 45 degrees from each other.

I'd recommend a night at the bangers if you're in the mood for a bit of gladiatorial combat!


Thanks for the kind comments and for looking in.
