1300 Stockcars are the newest formula to
Buxton Raceway, we have run them since 2009 now and they have been running to same spec as Skegness
Stadium's 1300 Stockcars on the East Coast, these are armoured up cars specially
built to take a knock or ten! Racing is sustainable and the
action is superb.
|1600 Open Rods
1600 Open Rods are strictly non contact
using any car up to 1600cc engine limit, Citroen Saxo / Pug 106
and the Honda Civic are very popular. Cars
are easy to build and the racing is excellent.
Hot Fords are front
wheel drive Fords running as a non contact formula with strict rules enforcing
standard parts throughout, the racing is fast and
close. Drivers race for different championships
during the season and even race away at Skegness on one weekend
Basic 'nudge and spin' banger racing with
light contact, meaning that generally cars last longer. Lots of
drivers take part which adds to the
spectacle and there are regular championship
races, a very popular formula here at the Raceway.
We also run Ladies Bombers too which is
very popular and becoming a formula in their own right.
Some great racing can be seen in Junior Rods and drivers are
aged between 10-16, many drivers go on to race other formulas
with great success.
2016 Junior Rods will all be 1000cc Nissan Micra's built and raced to non-contact rules,
lots of drivers compete and the racing is first class from the
We are working alongside Incarace, Trackstar and Startrax to make this formula a National
formula and we hope that this means along with our Buxton Junior
Bangers we also get a steady stream of visitors who are welcome
at all meetings at Buxton.
/ NATIONAL BANGERS
contact banger racing - not for the faint
hearted! usually in 2.0 litre cars or the bigger
Unlimited Bangers (King Of The Peak) where
anything goes, smashing fun for all the family.
Under the National Banger spec we also run
Micro Bangers a couple of times a year, small cars up to 1200cc
engines such as Micra's and Corsa's etc.
These are a step up performance wise from Hot
Fords and the power plant in these cars is the 16v Zetec Engine,
using original injection or 38DGAS carb
More of a
racing class than the bangers, these cars are
toughened up with steel plate all round, usually
having 3 litre engines they are fast, noisy and
very good entertainment - especially in the wet!! Super Bangers are one of the crowd favourites here at Buxton
and have seen a good increase in cars over the last few years.
Popular cars in this class are Ford Capri's, Sierra's, Scorpio
and Rover SD1.
ultimate in contact racing, these cars have
'unlimited' V8 Chevy engines that the spectator
can feel as they thunder past, drivers use the
bumpers to nudge other cars off the racing line
to gain places, Buxton Raceway is one of the best tarmac tracks
in the UK to host this formula and the racing is awesome.
A smaller version of the F1 Stockcars, these use
the Ford Pinto engine of 2L capacity and hundreds
of drivers take part all over the country, these
F2s are very fast on the raceway with a good
turnout each time.
The V8 HotStox are full sized stockcars just like
the F1s, but the V8s use a Rover V8 for
power and limited rules on both tyres and
suspension, making the V8s a cheaper option to
race, the lower spec tyres and suspension makes
for entertaining action whenever they appear, the
V8s produce good racing at Buxton and have many
different championships through the season.
kids from 10 to 16 this formula is considered a
training ground for the youngsters wishing to do
bigger and better things with many drivers moving
to F1 and F2, full contact is allowed and the
racing is fast and exciting, these kids have no
fear when on the raceway and a rollover is never
far away!! also of note is the fact that a lot of girls take
part and they are just as action packed as the lads.
a very unique formula, each and every car is
built to the same spec and no other modifications
are allowed - in fact each car has the same tyres
and the same fuel, this means that driver skill
has to shine through to win, Rebels use the
Reliant 850cc engine and the driver can use the
bumpers to gain places, Buxton is a popular track
for the Rebels and produce large grids of cars at
Small in size.. Low in cost.. BIG on thrills
This is a 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 - where sharing a
car with a senior is allowed.
Pure bred open
wheeled racing cars that only run on oval tracks,
strictly non contact racing with each car having
engine of unlimited design to 1400cc max, with
engine position either front, mid or rear mounted, races are long - often to 30 laps and
due to them being open wheeled, when it goes
wrong it can lead to mayhem!!
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. This an american derived formula
and Buxton Raceway's long straights mean these cars are some of
the fastest cars competing out there today.
Modstox is a low cost single seat open
wheeled stockcar formula powered by a four cylinder
Reliant 850cc engine. Superficially the cars look similar to
most other stockcar formulas but the details reveals that the
formula is designed to ensure racing can be done on a strict
budget. Strict rules ensure cars are well matched which results
is some very close and exciting racing.
Many ex F2 Stockcars can be re-engineered to run in this class.
