Welcome to Season 2019 here at Mendips…. and if 2018 was anything to go by, 2019 is going to be a cracker!!! We celebrate 50 years of the raceway and we start with a healthy mix of little car destruction, rivalry and skilful close quarters action. MICRO MADNESS Our yearly mega trash and crash of the dinky little motors gets underway. Kas and Micras are the oft weapons of choice as the small cars get their day in the sun, before the crusher gets them! Last year, it was Johnnie James (362) who took top honours in the big race, following heat wins for Caneron McColm (1340 (who will be racing F2 this year and Boogie (252) This is a popular form of National Bangers with many events for the tiny tearaways up and down the country. You will look at your Granny’s Micra in never the same way again!!

ENGLAND VERSUS WALES Whilst the Welsh may have had the better on the Rugby field and have the better songs, last year’s battle of the Severn saw England take a commanding victory over the two legs, with a total annihilation of the Welsh here at Mendips, followed a couple months later with another commanding win on the away leg. Tom Jones, Richard Burton, Nye Bevan, Dylan Thomas, Charlotte Church, your boys (and girls) took one hell of beating!!! Our visitors from the St Brides’ track near Newport join us again. Team Captains have been designated. Teams have assembled two mighty scores of cars. England will have the white bangers, Wales, in red, what else. Then after all the jingoistic fever has dissipated, the remaining Micros can race on and join the main event too!

JUNIOR RODS A new class of youngsters come to the Mendips Junior School of Rodding. Last year’s track champion Ewan Gumbleton (ex 190) has come of age and now will progress to a senior formula. Leah Bennett likewise, so the remaining class of 18, will be looking to see who is Head Boy or Girl for this season. With Gumbleton being truly dominant last season, it will be up to the likes of Tom Weeks (100) and Josh Weare (36) to step up – however Weare is very much turned educator working with brother Cameron McColm on his F2 adventure. Maybe the likes of George Jenkins (8) Ieuan Preston (149) and Charley Johns (35) will get the job done? Or maybe the girls, now red graded Jasz McArdle (29) and Maddie Giambaresi (176) can show the lads how its done? Or perhaps, the Gumbleton dominance continues in its next incarnation – Ewan’s brother Thomas is one of many newcomers this year.

HERITAGE F2 A taste of what it was like 50 years ago as the cars of yesteryear take to the track in a true showing of what it was like “in my day”. Last time, it was as support on World Final Night, and the Gold Cup saw a feisty field of 36 cars take to the track in the slippy conditions under the lights. It was Nick Whitney (773) who emerged victorious from the pack in the big race, and Whitney heads the entry. Plastic pasty – Essex boy turned Cornishman Alan Humphrey (253), fresh from familiarising himself with ladies in lycra jumpsuits at the Motorsport with Attitude Show at Peterborough last month, is out to have a go. Our illustrious promoter and race manager Graham (728) and Jack (128) Bunter are probably going to see if they can sneak a win or two – no special favours from the Steward will be given!

Stay in touch with our social media outlets – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now Snapchat! Over the winter our website has had a refresh too – have a look at for all the latest news, pictures and reports… Next time – it promises to be a meeting not to be missed as the Golden Anniversary meeting plays host with more than a whiff of nostalgia in the air, with the BriSCA F2 in World Qualifying Mode, along with Bangers and a first Special Rod Weekender. Bank Holiday Monday sees Vans and Juniors in action… Cheers n gone Jonny
