Caravan Banger Racing Is The Best Sport You've Never Heard Of

By: Grant Marek

Popularized in England, Caravan Banger Racing is sort of like a cross between a NASCAR race, a demolition derby, and a family vacation -- beater cars strap camper trailers onto the back of their cars, then race around an oval with the last car standing generally declared the winner.

The rules are pretty simple:

1) The caravans and cars have to be stripped down to their studs essentially -- the trailer can't have any windows, toilets, or visible wood

2) You have to be towing something, anything, by the end of the race to qualify for a victory

3) Crashing into other peoples' trailers is not only common, it's encouraged

The result of all of this is total carnage -- the track pretty immediately gets littered with trailer remains, and beaters are routinely abandoned on the track, which means plenty of obstacles for the rest of the field.
