Hire or buy a Back 2 Basics Banger with Cecil’s Rent A Rookie

Back 2 Basics Bangers are an attempt to bring back a formula that is cheap, easy to get in to and minimal build spec.

Cecil’s Rent A Rookie can provide Back 2 Basics Bangers to hire, or to buy a complete starter kit, at many tracks across the UK, although me mainly attend Spedeworth and Incarace meetings.

All of our race cars come supplied ready to race and we even include all of the safety equipment, including overalls, helmet, balaclava and gloves.

We take the stress and the worry out of sourcing and preparing the Back 2 Basics Bangers, which lets you concentrate on the important thing…..driving it!

So why not make the trip to the ‘other side of the fence’ for a change and let us make that dream become a reality with one of our adrenalin filled Banger Racing events.

If you’re looking to get yourself out on track and have a go at Banger Racing then Cecil’s Rent A Rookie can help you achieve just that!

We’re the original ‘Rent A Rookie’ company, supplying and building quality Back 2 Basics Bangers is what we do on a day-today basis so you can rest assured that we know what we’re doing and you are in safe hands, both on and off the track.

Our Back 2 Basics Bangers vary in price, depending on the type of car you want, the amount of time needed for paint and prep (maybe you want a professional airbrush signwriter to come in and make the car look pretty) and the track you want to race at, but every package includes the following;

  • Fully built Back 2 Basics Banger
  • Painted and sign written (to your spec)
  • All safety equipment provided (helmet, overalls, harness, gloves, balaclava etc)
  • Transport of the car to and from the race meeting
  • Racing fuel
  • Mechanics on the night (we try our best to keep the car running all night, but due to the nature of the sport no promises can be made)

All cars are built with safety in mind and the build spec will be the same as we would use on our own cars.
