Crash bang(er) at the Banger World Qualifier

I love the work I do. Then there are days when I really love the work I do because it exposes me to new experiences that I would never have had otherwise. On Easter Monday I went to photograph a race track in the middle of the countryside for my monthly feature in our local Viva Lewes magazine. The races on show were both contact and non-contact classes and included historic stock cars, Rookie Rods and the Bangers world qualifiers.

The day was as wet and miserable as early April can be, but the weather did nothing to dampen the spectators’ and participants’ enthusiasm. This spectacular crash happened during the second Bangers race. The driver had to escape through the gap where the windscreen would have been (none of the cars have glass windscreens) because his door was rammed by another car.
