Mendips Raceway
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Shipham
Attraction details
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

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 lots of layers,you can leave them in the car till needed.
Also take a chair or blanket to sit on,but its cheap and fun will be going back next bank hoilday.

Thank paul d

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 a small oval so, unlike Formula 1, you can see everything at once. It's free to wander round the paddock and you can chat to the drivers or just watch the miraculous repair work.

Word of warning - do bring appropriate clothing. It can get windy as it's on an exposed hillside. Thermals are a must.

An event usually lasts around 4-5 hours - family ticket £25 for 2 adults, 3 children.
