Everything was great except the weather. The race meeting was brilliant but a bit slow at times because of slightly adverse weather conditions for running the top fuel dragsters. Wworth getting cold for though.

It was my first time to Santa Pod. I'd been meaning to go for years. My 3 year-old son and I traveled over 100 miles to be there for the Friday and believe it was well worth it despite there being no drag racing due to the weather on that day. There was still plenty to see and do so... More

Hubby and I took our(not big) motorhome to 'pod for the Easter extravaganza. The weather wasn't kind to the organisers and it 'mizzled' for the Friday improving a bit for the Saturday/Sunday. The campsite was a quagmire, we got stuck just trying to pitch before finding a safe spot and very quickly became swamped. Pity the campers who must have... More

Visited as a family and weren't sure if everyone would enjoy it but even our 13 year old daughter had a thoroughly good day. We went in VIP Pitside, which was a really good experience. Brilliant viewing of the raceway. Entertainment in the live arena was very good when you wanted a break from the raceway. Ear defenders are a... More

What a great weekend at the festival of power. Despite typical British weather this was great. A full day of non stop action everything from street to top fuel dragsters. Supported by monster trucks, drift cars, air display, stunt bikes, jet cars, helicopter rides a circus etc etc. Probably 20yrs since my last visit but plan to go back this... More

This was my second visit, this time bringing the kids. First the weather wasn't the best, so we didn't stay as long as we might have, but there is little the venue could have done to improve this. The kids were blown away with the stunts bikes and the monster trucks, we would liked to have had a go on... More

I've been visiting Santa Pod for over 20 years, if you like fast cars, motorsport, monster trucks, motorbikes, drifting and custom cars this is the place to find them. It's been steadily improving every year in terms of facilities, food choices, showers, toilets etc.

great day out for all the family but very loud, fun fait and stalls and plenty of food . Can be a nightmare if it rains and can get very hot or cold as there is no shelter
