BriSCA Formula 1 Stock Cars is the most sophisticated stock car racing formula, with race-tuned V8 engines developing 650 bhp, quick-change axles and gearboxes, staggered chassis and braking setups for constant left turning. Large bumpers are mandatory and contact is encouraged to remove opponents. There are 3 BriSCA stock car racing Formula classes. Spedeworth are similar to the Formula 2 BriSCA stock cars in setups.

Alongside these main stock car racing formulas there is also National Saloon Stock Cars, Hot Rods and Bangers. Saloon stock car racing is mainly using heavily armoured Ford Sierra, Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Vectra cars purposely reconstructed for full contact collisions.

 Hot Rods is a non contact version of stock car racing that takes place on oval circuits. Hot rods are modified for safety with reinforced doors, roll-over bars and windscreens are removed. Bangers is a no holds barred type of race with very aggressive wrecking more important than the race. Although this isn't a demolition derby they often end that way.
