BMW Club day

A joy to any petrol head, Demo cars a treat and seeing stock BMW's taking to the strip along with 100's of BMW's of all types on display. Food available and not at rip off prices

It was a "quiet weekend" we were told and ultimately we were looking forward to lots of shiney cars and friendly natives and some racing. "Quiet" meant it was just a routine petrol heads/Santa pod locals day. Not a lot of people there considering the weather was brilliant. No idiots guide although an annoying radio DJ (Alan Partridge style) kept... More

First time to Santa Pod - we decided to hire a camper van for the weekend and stay on the campsite. Really enjoyed it, loved the night time show on the Friday. Food, drinks and facilities very good. Took chairs and sat on the bank to watch. Only disappointment, leaving the family campsite took 3 hours!!

Went to the Pod for the first time with my wife. We've been to a number of racing events such as Moto GP at Silverstone, the festival of speed etc. And this was up there as one of the best motor sport events we've been to. Great action, great organisation, great pit access, it had everything. We will be back... More

Visited again for the European finals, event was very well organised and the racing was superb, loos were clean, parking easy and food varied and plentiful though a little expensive.

I went here for the first time (although I wanted to for years!) last weekend for the European Finals. My friend used to race here in the '60s and explained exactly what was happening. It would be an idea to read around the subject if you are not so fortunate as me, as I would imagine it can be rather... More

On a good day Santa Pod is a great inexpensive place with a fair bit going on that will entertain the whole family, the food and fair rides are not OTT price wise either. However, if it rains and they cannot run the drag cars there is little to do and few places to hide from the elements (big Beer... More
