Year Information: 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.
