In the 1960's, a race promoter observed that crashes were the most exciting part of any race meeting. From this, an entire sport of Banger Racing was born. Today, each weekend across the UK racers as young as thirteen limp out onto dirt tracks and disused stadiums in an array of vehicles salvaged from scrapyards and back gardens; stripped to the core and rebuilt for their destruction. Winners are awarded cash prizes, but money isn't a concern to the men on the track. It's the adrenaline and heated rivalry between racers that keeps the tradition alive. Bangers documents the sport over a number of months, observing the carnage on and off the track, and the people behind it all.
