Our Race Formulas


Bangers :
Billy Goats 'bestest' race class.. Last year we had over more than 40 Micro Bangers at their meetings (70 at one!!) and with an upsurge in interest in the Unlimited Bangers, we have an extra meeting for them in the summer! EVERY race meeting we hold ends with a Destruction Derby, where the last car still moving is declared the Winner. We have also had some great numbers of competitors in Bangers at all our meetings, making Warton a must go to track if you love the action and carnage of full contact racing!


Stock Cars :
Papa Goats likes the BIG engines, incredible speed and action on the track in these over engineered beasts. We do too and with so many cars evenly matched, it is one of the most spectacular classes we race at Warton.


Ministox :
Daisy Goat likes these as they are driven with 'skill & speed' by 11 to 15 Year olds, and the girls do really well too. Its a great way to get children into racing and learning how to control a real car in very testing conditions, some of the best racing we have has been given by the drivers in this class.


Senior Minis :
Mama Goat likes these as they remind her of her childhood and its 'nice to see these old cars still going strong', and with all the drivers giving their all, its a very competitive class and the racing is always worth watching.


Junior Rookies :
Another regular race class at Warton for children to have a go at. It is Nudge & Spin based on Bangers for 11 to 15 Year Olds. Again the racing is always intense and fast, not forgetting action packed.


Lady Bangers :
Ladies are allowed to race in any class, but this Banger Class is just for them, Nudge & Spin but don't be fooled, the ladies can be very unladylike when behind the wheels of these cars!


Van Bangers :
We have all been 'cut up' on the road by a white van, well this is where we award stupid driving, the vans always give us plenty of action and its amazing to see how much damage they can take and keep going, though I'm not sure you would want your deliveries to arrive on one of these after we have finished with them.. The Big Banger Van race day this year is on 9th October 2016.


Caravan Race :
The annual epic event this year is on the 28th Aug. Yes its carmageddon for caravans, around 20 caravans get 'raced' though to be fair it usually ends up being organised chaos. Great fun and worth a visit to see. We have normal bangers and other support formulas racing on this day, so its action from the first race right through to the Destruction Derby.

          We are a members run, not for profit, racing club. We race about eighteen times a year, mainly from Spring to Autumn. Motor racing is often thought of as a male dominated activity, but we are proud to say that over the years we have had many female drivers who have done well racing against the men, from the 'Pink Lady' in the nineties right up to recent class champions in ministox and senior minis. This season (2016) is our second year with transponders, despite a few 'hiccups, the information for drivers and spectators to compare lap times with others and different weather conditions, they will be on the Stock Cars, Ministox & Senior Minis.  

         So why not come and watch the intense action on the track. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day. We have limited Free Track Side Parking and a Disabled only area that has a great view of the track from outside or inside the car, both these areas are on a first come basis and cannot be reserved. We race on a purpose built tarmaced quarter mile short oval, which means you can see all the action no matter where you stand.
          We have a Track Shop, Toilets and Burger Vans etc. Its a great place to bring a camera too and not expensive at all.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Where is the track?
The track is about ten minutes drive from junction 35 of the M6 and we have regular visitors from Cumbria, Greater Manchester and Merseyside, as well, of course, from the surrounding areas of Carnforth, Lancaster and Barrow-In-Furness. Follow the signs for the A6 Carnforth, turn right at the crossroads in the town centre and follow the signs three miles down the road. Or simply follow a race car on the back of a trailer or truck, they know where they are going, well most of the time.

What time does racing start?
Racing starts about noon, but we advise people to arrive by 11:30am so you can be settled and not miss a single race.

Is there Track Side Parking?
Yes, but its limited, first come first served. There's no extra charge for trackside, or any, parking.

Is There a Disabled Parking Area?
Yes, again its limited and its first come first served. It looks over the track and allows a good view of racing, even when still sat in the car.

Is there seating?
No, most people bring camping chairs to sit on. Though many spectators just move around the site to watch the racing from different angles.

Are people allowed in the pit area & is there a charge?
Yes spectators are allowed in the Pit Area, there is no charge, but we reminded people that there are moving cars & repair work going on all the time and suggest you keep a really close eye of your children.

How long does racing last?
We hold, often, twenty races during a race day. Our last race, the Banger Destruction Derby, is worth staying to watch. Racing normally finishes between 5pm or 6 pm. (Dusk on long days)

Can I bring my dog to the racing?
Yes, but its not for all dogs. Its dusty, noisy and a long day. Keep your dog on a lead at all times. Bring drinking water & some shade for it on hot/sunny days. Please do not leave your dog in a car without the windows being open for fresh air. Also they must be kept off the marsh behind the toilets and pit area.
