Destruction Derby commonly known as Demolition Derby is a part of Banger Racing where competitors fight it out till one car remains running and the remainder are screaming twisted wrecks.
A sport which is usually family and friends making up the spectators, old jags are the popular car to use at present.
Usually performed on dirt in a field or in most cases at a stock car track, which are scattered throughout the UK
The large amounts of motor oil, gasoline, and other chemicals spilled into the ground, and unfiltered vehicle exhaust released into the air at derbies prompted several European countries to enact environmental legislation that effectively banned the sport. Great Britain has been an exception to this trend. British banger races known as Full Contact Demolition Racing, Bump to pass, Thunder cars, drivers attempt to turn laps on a race track, while also trying to knock the other competitors off.
The only dedication required for this sport is to be an outright nutter who enjoys driving half an escort or maestro around a track whilst trying to stop the competition with every rule unimaginable in normal racing. It is a high adrenalin rushing event with little or no thought other than to keep going and hope you get to the end and that the car holds up.
This sport is basically for personal satisfaction and the adrenalin rush. Sometimes performed at Country shows.
I suppose the only closely related activity with this sport is how many different ways you can wreck a car, and gain a good knowledge of wreckers.
Cost for this is basically Nil apart from transportation costs and racing fees.
