No: from 'to bang'. Bump, hit, bump. It is a form of car abuse that has come from overseas in which the bottom line is to eliminate as many fellow drivers as possible. Being the first to cross the finish line is also an option…
In the Netherlands we now also see cars offered for 'banger racing'. Just like Ebola, the virus is spreading.
With the racing strategy "I push you off the track, so I win" it is clear that vehicle mass is a matter of importance. And full sized classics are just nice and heavy because they are still made of steel instead of plestik and airbaigs.
The result? That is car degrading.
