This and the September European Finals is an annual pilgrimage. Ok so it lacks the glamour of Formula1, but it isn't that boring! There is loads to see and do apart from the racing on the strip, Stunt cars driven by Terry Grant, stunt bikes, Monster Trucks and a Fairground, On the track there are all the classes of racing...

Great day out. First time visit to the raceway with family who are regular visitors. Visited on Bank Holiday Monday the final day of a 5 day event. Kids are free and there's plenty to see and do Fairground rides, monster trucks, play areas and of course the paddocks. Great to walk amongst the cars and chat to the owners.... More

An absolutely fantastic day out, however not reall the place for a 3 year old looking back, he was terrified of the loud noises, even after purchasing the ear protection. Maybe more enjoyable for an older child. The even was very safe and well organised & all the staff i came into contact with were lovely. Lots of food available.... More

First time me and hubby have been to Santa Pod and it was a great experience. It was Big Bang weekend, lots of vw campers and plenty going on. Stunt drivers, rocket cars, fun fair, live bands, drift cars and monster trucks. The only downside was the lack of showers, there is only one block which is on the other... More

Everything was great except the weather. The race meeting was brilliant but a bit slow at times because of slightly adverse weather conditions for running the top fuel dragsters. Wworth getting cold for though.

It was my first time to Santa Pod. I'd been meaning to go for years. My 3 year-old son and I traveled over 100 miles to be there for the Friday and believe it was well worth it despite there being no drag racing due to the weather on that day. There was still plenty to see and do so... More
