Big Bang Camper and Bus marks the start to the Vee Dub season at Santa Pod Raceway, and it’s just about the best excuse needed to get your beloved machine out of hibernation and take it on an early summer holiday for a weekend of camping, racing, show cars, music, comedy and much, much, more besides.


Starting on track, the famous Santa Pod drag strip is open to the general public for Run What Ya Brung, with the competition classes staying due to popular demand. You will also be able to watch several hot Bugs that have made the trip from mainland Europe to compete against our home-grown RWYB’ers.

The track will also host racing from the VWDRC Pro and Sportsman classes, along with guest classes Super Modified, Outlaw Anglia, 8.50 Bike, 9.50 Bike, Sportsman ET, Junior Dragster and new-for-2011 Junior Drag Bike. The track is also the place to spot the now legendary Fireforce Jet Car.


The drag strip also features Human Powered Racing on Saturday lunchtime, so please make sure you remember to bring a bike, skateboard, kite-board etc. whatever you think can win an engine-less half-mile race!


The massive and ever-popular Sunday Show and Shine is once again supported by a Rust and Rat show on the Saturday. The Rust and Rat Show proved so popular last year, extra trophies have been added in recognition of the excellent cars on display.


Evening entertainment takes place across two stages and two evenings, so everyone will find something that moves their feet, including 80s rock night with Doctor and the Medics headlining, club classics dance night and supporting bands and DJs.

The Live Action Arena will host Monster Truck shows, the Vander Space Wheel, stunt shows, wheelie vehicles, and a FREE handling track, which is always a great laugh for anyone who takes part.


On top of all that, there are dedicated children’s activities, Campervan Cook-off competition, Singstar and Guitar Hero competitions, Traders, Bring-and-Buy Auction, Internet heroes The Furzes with some crazy contraptions, Battle of Britain fly-past, trails bike shows, BMX shows and open skate-ramp, and more stuff than we’ve got space to write about. The best thing to do is check out the official website and see for yourself!

The advance ticket discount is available until 29th April, so get committed, get your tickets and save a few quid in the process! We recommend a full weekend ticket with FREE camping to get the most from the show. Please take a look at the official website for full details of tickets, info and what’s on.

See or call 01234 782 828 for tickets and more information.
