Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1982 With the same turnaround action of the Stox cars these bangers are similar to cars raced at banger meetings throughout the country. A careful flick on the throttle as the car is approaching the middle of a flat curve will send these vehicles spinning around to race back in the opposite direction. Some experts will soon be able to rotate their cars through complete circles and come out of the manoeuvre in the direction they want.
1983 Banger racing is an extremely popular spectator sport and vehicles similar to these Bangers can often be seen competing. A careful flick on the throttle as the car is approaching the middle of a flat curve will send these cars spinning around to race back in the opposite direction. The bright colours and humorous names are typical of the way these cars are presented in real life.
