“A must for all motor sport fanatics”
Review of Santa Pod Raceway

Reviewed September 25, 2012

Somewhere I have always wanted to go so when we found ourselves only an hour away we decided a visit was a must. It is easy enough to find and is well signposted. We were lucky enough to be able to watch some real drag racing and not the RWYB stuff or even worse DWYB rubbish. Everything ran to time, we weren't sitting round waiting for stuff to happen, the whole event seemed to be very well organised. There are plenty of choices for food and drink and not too overpriced, considering. The toilet blocks were clean and there were plenty of them. There were loads of rubbish bins everywhere. The only thing that let it down for us was the weather, it was cold and windy then at 1pm the rain came to stay :-( obviously you cant do drag racing in the rain so our day was cut short. We will definitely go back again though and hope for better weather.

Santa pod has lots to offer throughout the year which will suit all budgets and requirements. The larger events are well organised and the facilties are surprising good for an outdoor venue.Fireworks night is not to be missed, and it's one entry per car not per person :0)

If your a petrol head and love BIG engines, man, this is a must place to visit. FIA or European Finals days are brilliant. Good choice of food and beer, Check out the pasty van..

The only problem with Santa Pod is that it is very vulnerable to the weather. On a good day it's brilliant and if you have never seen drag racing before Top Fuel is an experience you will never forget.
