Great weekend out! £60 for a weekend full of things to do and camping is a bargain. From from an 8 second corsa to a corsa with no tyres playing car football, from drag to drift, from petrol to jet fuel. This weekend had every kind of motor you'd want to see. And if you like you can just take... More

its a great experience just to watch....altogether something else to race your own car up the strip! Highly recommended for a day out, especially for a big event. Theres an adequate café on site, and a fairground to distract the kids for some events. If you do decide to bring the family, consider ear plugs or defenders for the children

Went here to see the 22nd Mopar Euro Nationals. I really had a good time. I like how you're free to wander just about wherever you like to check out the cars and take pictures. Plenty of food and drink stands. Don't forget a hat and sunscreen!

My second visit to Bugjam, my first being two years ago at Bugjam 27. Another great weekend with loads going on once again. A must for VW lovers. There are many old and new VW cars and vans to look at. Drag racing done the strip, the jet car is unmissable. There are stalls selling everything VW. For kids or... More

This is about my 6th Bug Jam weekender at Santa Pod (I do frequent here for another VW show). Have to say, Santa Pod is such an awesome venue for drag racing and music events. I love coming here! I just wish that there were more showers conveniently located near the entrance and just in general as this specific event... More

Went for the grandsons 9th birthday as a group of 10 - 6 of whom were 9 year olds. It was a great day's entertainment - the boys liked the fact that they could see the start and finish line and the results were shown immediately. Lots more to see and do including a Wall of Death and a funfair.... More

I went with my partner and his mate as they were both sprinting. It was great i thoroughly enjoyed myself. However, considering we only really have Shakespeare County and Melbourne i expected Santa Pod to be the best main drag strip i was disappointed. On the down side i found most of the souvenirs a little too pricey. The toilets... More
