There is a sense of expectation in the air this weekend, as Wimbledon stadium plays host to its largest National Banger event of the year – the Banger World Series.

Back for its third year, the series has become an eagerly anticipated event for banger fans on the racing calendar, that nobody wants to miss.

With the promise to be the biggest and best World Series yet, a full house is expected at the iconic raceway in Plough Lane, on Sunday afternoon for the first round in the 2015 programme.

It was only a few weeks ago, that the current stars of the sport, appeared on track in an array of small cars such as Nissan Micras, in the increasingly popular Micro Madness meeting.

Tomorrow the guys will be wreaking havoc again but this time in the "unlimiteds" class, where there are no upper restrictions on engine or car size.

The format begins with the drivers being split into one of two heats. This will then be followed by an all-in final, where the winner will get a wild card berth onto the grid of the biggest race of the year – the Unlimited National Banger Championship of the World for 2015, in Ipswich on the October 10.

The meeting will be rounded out by the "showdown", with the winner either being the first to complete a 10-lap dash, or the last car running. With a potential prize pot of £1,500 tempting the drivers, just about anything is likely to happen.

The drivers intent on scoring vital World qualifying points usually choose cars such as Lexus and Ford Ultimas.

Those looking to maybe cause a little mischief instead select something that is bigger and stronger to ensure maximum damage.

With the added spice of drivers being allowed to turn round and attempt to stop their opponents as they pass, the crowd can expect some exciting crashing action.

Star driver Steve "Pikey"’ Bailey did just this with great success at last year’s meeting in his beautifully turned out Rolls Royce.

His was not the only special car at the meeting, as Lee Hughes, who was the world champion at the time, arrived with an immaculate Daimler Hearse for the occasion.

Looking to steal the limelight away from the National Bangers will be the 1,300cc Stockcars.

The armoured hatchbacks with limited contact rules always provide great entertainment.

Racing starts at 5.30pm, with turnstiles open at 4.30pm.
