Easter Bank Holiday Monday sees more motor sport action at Foxhall Stadium with a bumper afternoon of racing ahead, writes Dean Cox.

As is traditional, the Bangers are in town, joined by the elite oval race cars that are the National Hot Rods and the single–seater rockets that are the Grand Prix Midgets which makes for a very appealing fixture.

The Bangers return for another high speed, all crashing, action meeting following their recent outings here.

It will be all to race for as they race around the ¼ mile oval smashing, bashing and spinning each other out of the way as every driver is doing their best to be the first to the finish line and take the trophy!

Bank Holiday Banger racing at Foxhall Heath Stadium is legendary, always full of action and drama and this meeting should be no exception.

The National Hot Rods return to Foxhall for the first time in 2019.

It’s 2018/19 World Championship round 11 for the drivers and teams so not only it’s a point scoring opportunity, it is also a chance for some track time at Foxhall in their build up to the big race again this year which is staged over the annual Spedeweekend of July 6 annd 7.
