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

First time at the pod, lots to do during the day, plenty of trade stands to browse around, the food was a bit pricey but that's always the case at these events, all in all a good. Experience of the pod.

Went with my family to the Fire and Thunder event a Santa Pod Raceway. At £25 per adult on the gate thought it was a bit expensive. However when I was leaving 7 hours later I thought it was definitely worth the admission fee. Monster trucks, dragsters, fair rides, exhibitions, car rides and so much more. Please go, you wont...

What an absolutely amazing weekend with full entertainment for the whole family! The action didn't stop both on and off the drag - strip. An action arena had monster trucks & both bike & car stunt shows, racing included a rocket dragster & jet motorbike. The evening saw the huge bonfire being lit and and a fantastic firework display! There... More

Good day out for the family, if you don't mind loud cars, not good for very small children, I noticed children getting bored so if I had young kids, I wouldn't go for long. I didn't like sitting on the grass but I wasn't going to pay just to sit, so you would need to take fold-up chairs or a... More
