BANGERS

i race bangers in the u.k and was wondering what are the safety specs for the bangers in s.a ive looked at the pictures on this website and it looks your bangers are built completely different to ours, i.e bars welded to front and bits of metal and rubber covering tha backwheel???

i was wondering if it was more nudge and spin style rather than spoting a car parked against the barrier and steaming straight into the back of it flat out! also i was wondering if any1 could put some more pictures of bangers on here?? and whats the best car for bangers in s.a ???

 

cheers

A few suggestions

Posted by 33 Kenneth Ella 33 on May 29, 2011 at 6:33 AM Comments comments (3)

Hi, Guys

I would like to make a few suggestions concerning The Speedworth racing venue in pretoria. The only reason for this is that I really enjoy racing there, however I do feel there is room for some improvements in order to make it a better experience for everybody.

1st The bathrooms, guys they are terrible! they dont have to be smart and flashy but at least clean and neat and if they smelt nice it would be a cherry on the cake. ESPECIALLY the ladies bathrooms(we all know ladies like a tidy bathroom). I have been made aware that Speedworth Pretoria is now the largest club, so we have got the cars, now lets get the spectators and keep them there. I have seen other race track bathrooms and they wheren't great either but lets try and make Speedworth the spectator venue of choice and I think the bathrooms are an important aspect for the spectators and an easy enough thing to maintain.

 

2nd The order of events, in the pits there is always an order of events posted that shows drivers when they are racing in the different heats, but this is all pretty pointless if this shedule is never followed. Most drivers plan accordingly as to re fuel, running repairs, getting something to eat etc.

For example if the shedule says the 2.0l are just after the sprints, the drivers know that when the sprints go out they should be ready to go and start lining up, but if all of a suddon it is decided to move the 2.0 before the sprints half the guys are still checking their cars and re fuelling when the guys start moving out onto the track. Trying to stick to the shedule will just make things run a little smoother and more efficient.

3rd The scruiteneers do a great job! saftey being ther No.1 concern and it shows when you see how few people are injured in these events. Something I do think should be taken alot more serriously is oil and water leaks. 90% of the cars have some or another form of oil or water leak, these leaks should strictly not be tollerated, they spill all over the track which at the end of the day puts cars into the wall at the cost of the driver, and just as importantly damaging the wall. I also feel that the cars should maybe be checked for leaks after being involved in an accident, Just as a stock rod would not even be considered to race with slicks, this same attitude should apply to cars with oil and water leaks, and just like you don't get stockrods showing up with slicks on, you wont get cars showing up with water or oil leaks. But once again thanks to the scruiteneers, they do a great job!!

4th And lastly, I would like to suggest that a little more trouble goes into announcing the winners. After all the guys go to alot of trouble to get that podium position, small little things like, lets concentrate on getting the guys name right, mention the race cars main sponsors etc.  I noticed this at the rock and it just comes accross as alot more proffessional, ie. 1st position taken by "Race Driver', in the white Datsun GX, number 747, sponserd by Bidvest and Checkers. This will also make it alot more worthwhile for the sponsers to put their name on tthe side of the cars, and well lets face it sponsers do play a big part in making these cars zoom around the track.

 

Well these are just a few basic suggestions, please don't get me wrong I am not trying to tell anybody how to do their job. But I don't think trying to improve the experience for drivers and spectators could cause any harm. If I am the only person that feels this way, well then I suppose there is no reason for anything to change, if not maybe this is something to be considdered.

Keep well and happy Racing!
