You can book your rooms by calling 01934 750100, and you will get discount if you mention Mendips Raceway.

We can confirm for 2014 that Banger Van racing will be back! On Easter Monday April 21st the Banger Vans will be the feature formula, and the rules are quite simple-any panel vans, minbuses, etc up to 3500kg gross are eligible, but no pickups, 4x4s or yanks. Petrol or diesel may be used, but no small saloon derived vans will be allowed. Drivers are already finding vans to race, so it looks like a good day’s crashing in prospect.
The first track event for 2014 will be the Practice Day in Saturday March 1st. Gates will open at 10am, all drivers are welcome, and the price per driver will be £20. The track will remain open until 4pm, so you can practice as much as you like. New drivers, especially Juniors, are urged to take part. Junior drivers may take their Assessment on Practice Day, and licencing will also be available.
