About Us

HENHAM RACEWAY AS IT WAS THEN KNOWN IS THE OLDEST SHORT OVAL TRACK IN THE COUNTRY. WE ACQUIRED THE RACEWAY IN JANUARY 2012 AND REBRANDED IT TO Stansted RACEWAY. tILL THIS DAY WE HAVE LINKS TO THE OLD CLUB HERE AND HOLD OUR TRIBUTE TO THE TOWNSEND FAMILY WHO FOUNDED THIS WONDERFULL TRACK MANY YEARS AGO, JAMIE TOWNSEND IS STILL DOING THE COMMINTATING WITH US.

Our season runs from the 1st Sunday in April to when the clocks go back and we race once every two weeks.

We are very proud of our Raceway

We have built our reputation and our values on being a family-friendly track. We currently boast turnouts of 150 plus race cars each meeting across formula's  Pictured on right is the drivers and mechanics paying their respect to Bob Townsend the track's founder who sadly passed away. 150+ cars on track for a minutes silence then a lap of honour, they didn't need asking twice. 

Formula's currently racing here are

There will always be a Banger formula each meeting whether it's Micro's,1600's or Unlimited cars. These are full contact.
Hot Rods (No contact)
Junior Bangers 10-16 yrs old (Nudge and spin)
FWD Dirt rods 1600 MAX (nudging into corners and leaning on each other)
RWD Dirt rods Unlimited  (nudging into corners and leaning on each other)
