Good fun

Each time we have been here we slid about in the muddy field parking and had to walk a fair way through mud to the strip. It's bloody cold so wrap up and take your ear muffs.

We went here when Ken Block was at the SantaPod Raceway. It was really fun; with a-lot of shops (Clothing, food, car accessories). There is a lot going on here and it is a full day out!

Went for Japshow Finale with our 2 year old son and it was great! Some cars were abit disappointing but it wasnt Santa Pod's fault, the layout is nice and you can clearly see the cars from many places so you dont miss out on any drag racing!!

We popped down to Santa Pod for the FIA Finals in September and thoroughly enjoyed the day out. There was plenty of food options all of which were of fairly mid range price, I honestly expected to pay more. The other facilities were good as well and I would highly recommend for a day out. Queueing can take a while... More

Always an amazing turn out. Quarter mile racing all day. Show cars, trade stands, lots more. Best when the sun shines.

Have always wanted to go, and certainly not disappointed!! Excellent afternoon with lots going on and plenty to watch, fireworks in the evening were excellent. A great day out, well worth the money.

We bought the VIP tickets and really enjoyed ourselves, even the weather was amazing. Considering the meal, tea and coffee plus the grandstand facilities right over the top of the start line, it was a fabulous day, though the ticket price of just over £100 each was a bit steep, though when you see all the preparation and planning that...

This was our second visit to Santa Pod Raceway having previously been for a VW event and it was fantastic. When we first went about 3 years ago and really enjoyed the whole experience so when I was sent an email about this event we thought we would give it a try. The whole day was action packed from beginning... More

We went to Flames and Thunder followed by Run What You Brung on the Sunday. Flames and thunder was brilliant, lots to see and I love the jet cars so I would definitely recommend it. But after that point a few things went down hill. 1. The toilets by the family camp site were closed on the Saturday night when... More
