I genuinely love this place. It's only a tenner for an adult to enter (less for kids) and you can spend all day just watching races, bangers, stock cars etc. I've been many times, and will continue to go. YES - it's on the top of the Mendips so it can be very cold, but take a coat. Arrive early... More

We had the most fantastic day out bank holiday mon. We saw robin relents sliding along on their roofs and being pushed back over by the Marshalls soooooooo funny. The banger racing was fun as well but the caravanalism was hilarious. It took just under 2 min to distriy 14 caravans and then some more time for the demolition to... More

So much fun! Watching the 3 wheelers was definitely a favourite with the kids and the caravandalism at the end was just the absolute icing on the cake. We went in a group with kids from tiny to teens and they all loved every minute. We're very much looking forward to the next one!

Our first visit to Mendips Raceway today after hearing it advertised on Heart Radio. The caravandalism is the attraction that drew us as we regularly cuss caravans on the road and looked forward to seeing a few less of the damned things! A brilliant day! The Reliant Robins were hilarious, tumbling over frequently. 'Twas a cold, muddy day but we're... More

The race track sits high on the Mendips overlooking the Somerset Levels. A beautiful view. The racing was well managed and the marshalling was first class. The commentary was superb, very clear and professional. A fantastic family day out.

Great track loads of races, Highly recommend carvandalism, Robbins, Hearst and limos and destruction derby. There is a Bar and plenty of food stalls/ice cream vans Etc. Only down side the entry and program price is steep especially for a family but great bank holiday day out. If its sunny take lotion as there is no shade and umbrellas will... More

We have been going to watch Stock Car and Banger Racing here for many years now. Our children love it! We started when the youngest was only a baby and I was concerned he would be scared by the noise of the engines but no such problem! We particularly love the Caravandalism event every August and the Reliant Robins! Great... More

This race course takes a bit of finding. It a great small track and you can see all what's happens in the race. You can walk round the pits and talk to the drivers and crew. The staff are great and very helpful. It's a great place to spend an afternoon but be warned it gets very cold so take... More

If you've never been to see banger racing before, it's great value entertainment and this is the track to visit. The staff are incredibly welcoming and the crowd is family-orientated. The commentator explains everything for newbies so you always know what's going on. The racing can be wheel-to-wheel racing one moment, and full-bore crashing the next. And the track is... More
