Literally using old cars (bangers) to race, banger racing is a motorsport that is popular all across the world. The sport generally uses scrap cars that have been repaired and kitted out for racing. The cars then race around an oval or figure-of-eight track. The nature of the cars means that banger racing is very cheap and therefore accessible to a much larger quantity of people than some motorsports. Banger racing does often contain a high number of crashes due to the low value of the cars involved, so safety precautions do need to be strictly adhered to..
