Mendips Raceway opened in 1969 and is in its fortieth season of racing here in the Mendip Hills. We promote stock car and banger racing primarily, with a number of guest and domestic formulae making up each exciting programme.
The tarmac track and unique up and down hill section makes for fast and thrilling racing, and the pits can cater for up to 100 cars per meeting, spread over up to four different formulae.
With high spectator banking, the viewing is tremendous, with all parts of the track visible at all times, and guests can enjoy a picnic on the banks, or sample the good food and drink on offer at the catering outlets during the afternoon.
Stock Car Racing
You’ve seen it on TV. You’ve watched it through the fence. Now’s your chance to get behind the wheel of a full-on stock car on an oval race circuit usually reserved for seasoned competitors.
You’re on the grid, engine running, helmet on, visor misting, harness pinning you against your seat. In front and alongside, their engines revving sit your opposition. The smell of fuel and fumes mixes with the sweat running down your neck and the mounting sense of adrenalin.
Have you got what it takes to win the cup? Have you listened to the instruction earlier in the day? Do you know how to get the best out of your vehicle? Can you safely pass the car in front and hold your position?
What you get to do depends on you. If you show us that you can listen, learn and apply, you’ll be on the grid waiting for the flag to drop in no time at all.
We’re here to make sure you know what to do, obey the rules and keep it safe whilst having a great time – respect your instructors, look after your vehicle and you’ll leave wanting more.
So long as you have a full licence, we’ll provide the training and the kit you’ll need to make this an experience you’ll never forget.
