Great to see the top fuel cars racing at night on the Friday. The facilities have greatly improved over the last 35 years (when I first got 'the drag addiction).' Well done all staff and management. Will keep going, hopefully for the next 35 years as it always proves time and money well spent.

Just been to Santapod for the third time in a year and finally thought a review is in order. I wont go into too much detail, but needless to say, if you are a bit of a petrol head and have never seen a top fuel dragster go from 0 to 300mph in under 4 seconds with approx. 8000 to... More

Always love going here but be prepared for bad camp site, long queue to get in and no help from the stewards if you get stuck in the mud. The racing is always good and worth putting up with the poor facilities

My husband works in the motor trade and fortunately received complimentary tickets for the 2014 FIA/FIM Championship finals. Due to commitments we weren't able to attend for the whole 4 days but took our children with a couple of their friends on Sunday for the last day of racing as children under 16 enter free. We arrived early (highly recommended)... More

I took my two children to a day at the European finals. There is absolutely no help for the disabled. Inspite of empty seats I couldn't buy a much needed grandstand seat as ' they are all sold for the weekend ' Unless you are totally mobile this is a wasted day. There are no disabled facilities ie seating, viewing... More

Went today for the first time in about ten years for a day out at the dragster races and have to say we were not disappointed! It's the best day out even if you're not interested in cars, there's something for everyone but take your ear plugs, those cars are seriously noisy!!! You can get to see everything from the... More

Visited Santa Pod today with the family. Arrived at mid-day allowing the remainder of the day to view some drag racing, an afternoon show as well as some other attractions. I don't think the facilities warrant the entry price of £72 for two adults (children are free) however the kids did enjoy themselves! For me the absolute major negative was... More

We went for the Festival of Power back over the Aster weekend and it was superb! We camped in the field (brilliant value) which meant we could see everything.

About 30 of us piled over to Santa Pod for Bugjam and we all had a great time! They do seem to have improved the toilets and they were cleaned out regularly. It does seem a lot more organised (mainly the parking) which is a benefit to most, but has taking a bit of the fun out of it as... More
