On a dirt track in Smallfield, near London Gatwick airport, amateur “banger” drivers compete in an adult, more dangerous version of bumper cars. But the real drama is in the pits – the tense preparations before the race, the hurried efforts afterwards to patch the cars up to race again, the sad work of carting the unsalvageable wrecks off to the scrap yard. These photographs record how drivers, crews and spectators stake all their hopes and energies in a competition that is always one step away from destruction.
