This was a day out for my daughter as a birthday present. (She has got everything else.) Full day of noise, great food, dodgems and seeing things I've never seen before! The best thing of all is that anyone can have a go! It's called " Run what ya brung " and it really is for road cars as well... More

We went to the BWM festival and had a fantastic time however this review is more aimed at Santa Pod as a venue including the facilities. Overall, I love the place. It is a unique place with a positive vibe. The vast majority of staff were great but it has beyond perfect facilities. The shop (closest to main entrance)- poorly... More

Awesome show again this year.. But the camping facilities are shocking no shower block, very small toilet block, no bins, no soap in dispensers, nowhere to get water. We payed almost 70quid for 2 people to camp and admission to show. How can a world famous raceway offer such poor facilities?

I have always been and remain to this day a complete petrol head, when my son asked if I would like to visit the Drag Racing with my daughter in law and grandsons I jumped at the chance. Not knowing what to expect my impression was that I would be stood just watching high powered kit build machines, couldn't have... More

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
