PREVIEW: Mendips Mayhem Weekend! 29th June 5PM - 30th June 1PM


Hello and welcome to another weekend at Mendips Raceway! It’s banger after banger after banger this weekend as the bangers are the main stars with 4 classes racing over the next two days, although we do also have some three wheeled friends with us… I’m Jamie Waller Jones, and here’s your weekend rundown!

Old School Unlimited Bangers Thunderbolt 24

One of the longest running titles here at Mendips, Thunderbolt 24 has a decent array of drivers booked in hoping to claim the title. Last time out in the Unlimiteds wins went the way of 77 Patxi Beasley and 739 Jason Moore, who are both booked in along with PRI World Champion 67 Rickie Beasley. We also have a track debutant in 02 Riley O’Sullivan, and I'm sure the young gun will have his sights set on the title, but so will the Bartletts and BRCM!

1600 National Bangers

The 1600’s return after a lively display at the Bangers Down West Smash at the start of the season, and they look set to give us another entertaining show. The chaotic father and son duo of 86 Liam and 87 Jason Harvey always enjoy putting the bumper in, meanwhile on double duty on Saturday will be 154 Joe Odhams, 262 Rob Bugler, 440 Macauley Mills, and 743 Jake Bond, who along with racing in the Unlimiteds, will also be in the 1600s! Keen.

B2B Caged! Open

Basic in build, yet the racing is high quality! The B2B’s make their first appearance of the year, and what a list! 31 Liam Shipway is one driver to watch out for, as he’s bringing a rather crusty van with him! Other drivers include former Caged! Open champ 129 Lee Dalton who makes his first appearance of the year, Bilge Brigade brothers 309 Chris and 328 Mike Parry will also be in attendance, most likely with something unsuited for the sport! Ford enthusiast 962 Abbie Deeprose rounds out the list and will be hoping to keep broken bottom arms to a minimum.


Having been called up on short notice, the Rookies have stepped up for their 3rd appearance of the year. Last time out, they were absolute carnage with pileups galore! Drivers and lap scorers alike will be hoping for a calmer session today, especially 2 Harrison Staples, who had a nightmare of a meeting. Meanwhile, father 23 Barry Staples had a blinder, along with 410 Dan Galley who took a win in the final. 956 Harry Thompson is aiming for another win, whilst 852 Ryan Hughes makes his long-awaited return.


And finally, we move on to the three wheelers! 275 Jack Buckingham makes his first appearance of the season, coming back from a backpacking adventure in New Zealand! 100 Thomas Weeks will be back out after having a meeting with some fibreglass last time out, fair play to him! 154 Joe Odhams is also Robin powered, which will be his third formula of the weekend. And entertainers 14 Mckenzie Loader, 87 Jack McDade and 669 Immy Loader will all be trying to outdo each other for those vital entertainer points.

Kindly note - Saturday starts at 5pm, Sunday at 1pm!!
