1500cc Bangers

A number of drivers have asked for clarification about what cars may be used in Under 1500cc Bangers at King’s Lynn in 2012.  When it was first introduced a few years ago the Under 1500cc specification was pretty simple but the progression of available cars has resulted in some models now being used as Bangers which meet the original specification but which are having to be excluded from the 1500cc class because their use is considered potentially dangerous when these cars are evaluated against some of the weaker cars traditionally used in the class which are still widely available.

The basics of the class are still the same as they always were:

  • Any car to be used must have been made with an engine option of 1500cc or smaller
  • Any car to be used must be larger than permitted in the Micro Banger class at King’s Lynn
  • Engine limit is 1600cc (twin cam and 16 valve allowed) but the limit for Cortina and Capri is 1300cc crossflow or Kent engine  

Cars conforming to the above three rules but specifically excluded from the class are:

  • Any car belonging to the A60 family of vehicles
  • Ford Focus

Cars not meeting the above specification but still allowed in the Under 1500cc class because of their unsuitability for use in 2 Litre Bangers are as follows:

  • Daewoo Lanos
  • Nissan 100NX  

Although this list is not exhaustive (particularly for older models which are unlikely to be used but may still be permitted), a listing of cars suitable for Under 1500cc Bangers is provided below.  Anything not listed below should be checked with the TSR office beforehand:
