Mod & Downloads

    • Dalags Tracks
    • Online Bangers : Wreckfest
    • UKDirt Bangers Skinpack

Banger Driving Rules

  • Driving the opposite way (on oppo) will be allowed on the bends only for every race except the DD (Demolition Derby), where driving the opposite way will be allowed anywhere.
  • At no time & under no circumstances, should anyone attempt to drive the wrong way up the straights or hit a car head on from the opposite direction, on the straight. This includes reversing up the straight. No turning around on the infield and/or on the straight to drive back to the bend. It does not matter if you hit a car or not, it is still oppo on the straight.
  • Corner cutting will not be allowed at any meeting.
  • Blocking will not be allowed at any meeting other than team meetings. Blocking is the act of obstructing someone else from moving away, i.e. being on the brakes in front of someone and slowing them up.
  • Pinning will not be allowed at any meeting other than team meetings. Pinning is preventing a car from moving by holding them back in a specific way, i.e. against the fence.
  • Sandbagging will not be allowed at any meeting other than team meetings. Sandbagging is purposefully slowing down significantly from racing speed, and waiting for someone to then attack and/or obstruct.
  • Leaning another car to the infield is not allowed, i.e turning into a car forcing them to hit an object/wall/tyre on the infield.
  • Attacking cars from/off the infield or on the infield is not allowed under any circumstances.
  • You must stay on the race track. The infield may only be used when parking up. If however we find you are using this to gain an advantage, you may face disciplinary action.
  • All race results will count as long as you are still running at the end of it.


Skins (Custom Painted Cars)

  • Cars are available for any member without their own custom skin in game. You can use in game paint schemes and liveries but these are not for extended periods of use on UKDirt.

  • You are not permitted to use real life skins during meetings.
  • You are not permitted to switch cars during the meeting.
  • Any new/updated skins must be added to the skin collection thread by 9pm Monday before each meeting.
  • For each skin sent to us, you must send us all 7 required files.
  • It must be made clear what car these skins are for.
  • All files must be fully converted and ready to go in game.
  • Required Files (replace XXX with your race number):
    • XXX.vepa
    • skinXXX_c5.bmap

    • skinXXX_damaged_n.bmap
    • skinXXX_damaged_s.bmap
    • skinXXX_n.bmap

Bookings

  • Bookings are open for the week preceding a meeting on the UKDirt website, in the members area.
  • Members wishing to race should book in before 6pm on the day of a meeting.
  • Any bookings after 6pm on the day of the meeting are considered late bookings, accepted only at the discretion of the RM (Race Manager). Late bookings are regularly accepted up to 7.30pm, but this is no indication of future arrangements.
  • Warning! For championship meetings, members wishing to race are advised to avoid late booking or they may forfeit their place on the grid.
  • Any member booking for a meeting and not racing (without reasonable explanation) will incur a messer strike, as part of the wider UKDirt scheme.
  • Warning! There is no such thing as a 'provisional' booking, please don't use it to play the messer strike system, if you think you will struggle to make a meeting that you are booked in to race let the RM know.

Disciplinary

  • This section relates only to the UKDirt Banger league.
  • Disciplinary matters are incredibly simple - If you do something wrong, then you might get in trouble!
  • If you have a complaint, get in touch with the UKDirt Banger Admin Team. Please send a Private Message on the UKDirt Forum including details of the incident (which race, which lap, which cars, etc) and please include your video footage. This complaint should be submitted before midnight on the Thursday following the meeting.
  • The UKDirt Banger Team will aim to deal with complaints within 1 week.
  • Disciplinary action will be posted to the relevant thread on the UKDirt Banger section of the Forum, and any member with disciplinary action against them should also be informed by PM on the UKDirt Forum.
  • Review of an incident may take place whether there is a complaint lodged or not.
  • Each complaint will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
  • Previous history affects ban length, so if you're a consistent rule breaker, your ban length could well be greater than someone who has had a clean record.
  • Constant rule breaking may result in a permanent banger ban.
  • Ban lengths will be in meetings, for example, 1 meeting ban, 2 meeting ban, 3 meeting ban etc.
  • If you feel that a disciplinary outcome is unsatisfactory, then you are welcome to appeal the decision.
  • You should contact a member of the Banger Admin Team stating your case in full.
  • The UKDirt Banger Admin Team, and potentially other UKDirt Admin members, will review each appeal case.
  • If an appeal has no substance, or appears to serve no purpose other than to waste the time of admin members, beware that there is potential to take further disciplinary action.
  • The outcome of an appeal is FINAL.
