Folkrace vs Bangers rodeo[edit]

Have you got Bangers rodeos or so-called demolition derbys in Sweden? It is not the intention of Folkrace that the last man driving is the winner, after he has crashed all other competitors out of the race. Although Folkrace is driven with mostly terrible looking cars it is IMO some kind of "Rallycross for the poor" and has nothing to do with deliberately forcing other drivers to retire. Otherwise it would definetely not be regognised by the SBF. AFAIK Banger races are in no European country recognised by any ASN. RX-Guru (talk) 15:53, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Banger racing does not necessarily mean you have to crash all the orher cars. As it says at banger racing "drivers of old vehicles race against one another around a race track and the race is won in terms of the first car to the chequered flag". // Liftarn (talk)
