Caravan Carnage At Bovingdon Raceway

Caravan Race And Demolition Derby


If you are a member of the Caravan Club you had better avoid Bovingdon Raceway on Good Friday, April 14th at 1.30pm as Spedeworth South hosts the annual Caravan Race and demolition derby at the Hertfordshire circuit.

Bangers will be hitched up to the caravans and pull them faster than they have ever moved, in their previous job of holding up traffic en route to the coast, when the green flag drops.

By the end of the race (and most certainly by the end of the demolition derby that follows) most of the caravans have been reduced to little more than a set of wheels attached to the tow bar, bringing smiles to the faces of anyone who has had to endure being stuck behind a “happy camper” crawling along the holiday B roads with a 15 mile tailback in their wake.

The Bangers will also be in action (without caravans) on the day. The Bangers will be chasing points in the opening round of their Track Championship, so expect plenty of cars on the track and plenty of damage as soon as the green flag drops.

The Rookie Rods will provide non-contact racing action. These budget racers are built to strict specification and cost rules, allowing fans to get behind the wheel for limited outlay and experience the thrills of oval racing. The strict building regulations mean the cars are very evenly matched and as a result provide very close, bumper-to-bumper racing.

To add to the day’s action-packed racing programme, the Ministox will also be taking to the circuit providing very close racing from their young 11-16 year old drivers.

With three great formulas in action, plus the jaw-dropping caravan race, parking, and a great view of all the action from high-banked spectator areas, Bovingdon (situated off B4005 Bovingdon, Nr Hemel Hempstead, Herts, on the airfield complex) looks set to provide a smashing start to the Easter Bank Holiday.
