Santa Pod’s Powerfest. Putting The ‘Rush’ In Rushden!

Posted by volkszone

If you are a motorsport fan – or just want to see something a little out of the ordinary, make sure that you make your way to Rushden town centre at 2pm on the 22nd of May – for the Rushden Powerfest!

DragsterPOP08
This unique celebration of outrageous machinery parades through the town centre in order to promote the FIA Main Event which takes place at Santa Pod Raceway between the 28th and 31st of May. It’s a high-octane mix of powerful cars, motorbikes and dragsters pounding the tarmac in an unadulterated celebration of all things fast and loud!

David Lloyd Jones, Santa Pod’s General Manager, commented “This is our little way of saying thanks to the local community and giving everybody the chance to see the simply incredible machines that race at Santa Pod Raceway. Last year’s Parade of Power event in Wellingborough was a great success as a real family event, so we thought it would be fun to hold something similar in Rushden. This year, being the events first, we’re hoping for good weather and to draw a good crowd so that we can do it again in future. It’s one not to miss!”

DriftPOP08m

The event will feature dragsters, motorbikes and other machines parading through Rushden town centre. The route will be around the one way system in town from Duck Street, to  Rectory Road, down Skinners Hill and back around again, avoiding all speed bumps. Any car enthusiasts with an unusual or interesting car are invited to send their details and car images to [email protected] in order to take part.
Martin Hill’s Fireforce 3 Jet Car will be making a special guest appearance in the static display along with Santa Pod Raceways own Top Fuel Dragster and Merchandising trailer.

FirePOP07

Before and after the display, you will be able to find a selection of these monstrous machines on display in the High Street as a section of this will be closed off for the duration of the day.

Drivers will start their engines at 2pm, so make sure you get into town early to get a spot right near the front. Some of these cars have literally 1,000’s of horsepower, so you do not want to miss the action!

NitroPOP09

Between the hours of 1.30pm and 3.30pm the following roads will be closed:

Rectory Road
Duck Street
High Street from Newton Road Junction to Station Road Junction
Newton Road from  Rectory Road Junction to High Street South/Skinners Hill Junction
Skinners Hill from High Street South Junction to the Duck Street/Wellingborough Road Roundabout
Wellingborough Road from  Duck Street Junction to Newton Road Junction (Skinners Hill)
Station Road from Rectory Road to High Street
Coffee  Tavern Lane
Alfred Street
College Street
Victoria Road between  Rectory Road and High Street
Queen Street between Rectory Road and High Street
Beaconsfield Place
West Street
John Street
Church Street

Orchard Place Car Park will also be closed all day.
We are sorry for any inconvenience but please make alternative arrangements.

Immediately after the Powerfest, Santa Pod Raceway will be gearing up for Europe’s most exciting Drag Racing season opener; The FIA Main Event! This hugely popular, televised event is the first round of the prestigious European Drag Racing Championship and features the largest race entry and most packed Motorsport event anywhere in Europe! Over 250 teams, and 16 race classes make this event unrivalled for both the quality and quantity of racing. Make it a date in your diary now! Friday 28th to Monday 31st May.

15 reasons to attend Big Bang

Posted by volkszone

BIG BANG inc. VW CAMPER & BUS SHOW
The Fun & Friendly Family VW Festival
23rd -25th April 2010
Santa Pod Raceway, Wellingborough, Northants. NN29 7XA
01234 782828

BigBangShownShine_bb09djm

1. Drive your VW on the strip, whether it’s a Beetle, Bus or Golf, all shapes and sizes of VW are welcome for a mere £25 per day of unlimited runs. Just bring your driving licence and sign-on fee to the signing on office where you’re then set to run on the FIA approved track. You will also be able to collect free performance print-outs of each run showing a breakdown of speeds and times!

VWBusesBJ06DJm

2. Kids Entertainment. Big Bang is the family VW show and with a great selection of kid’s activities all weekend, it’s no wonder. There are kids parties, face painting, circus whizz (kind of like a workshop for circus tricks where you come and go as you please) and of course, they get to enjoy the rest of the show along with the adults and big kids!

3. Live Action, There are a whole host attractions as well as the track including a Monster Truck display, 260mph Jet Funny Car, UKFMX, the UK’s best Motocross display team, a classic VW Beetle powered by with a mahoosive jet engine, BMX displays and much more!

BeetleBurnout_bb09djm

4. Championship Racing. The VWDRC will be here to show you how it’s done with their specially prepped Drag Racing VWs. There are also a few other invitational classes including Super Modified and Street Eliminator so you can expect to see 7 second runs at over 170mph! There will even be a couple of sub-10-second bike classes to add even more variety to the track.

PartyTent_BJ09DJm

5. Live Music. As always at Big Bang, there will be the Big Top Marquee as well as the bar, both hosting Live Music for you to choose from, as well as Funky House and Anthems from DJandyB, LeeDagger and a tribute night with tributes to Duffy, Lady Ga Ga and Scissor Sisters plus loads more live bands. It’s all part of your ticket price. So no excuses for not getting them in!

6. Live Magic/Comedy. Magician Alistair Cook will be performing a live magic show with a twist as he provides even more entertainment for your viewing pleasure. But no, as good as he is, he can’t make your hangover disappear. Only bacon rolls can do that.

Tradersbj06djm

7. Traders. Owning a VW, the chances of you needing a part of some description will be quite high and with such a large number of traders together in one place, whatever you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it here! Everything from sunglasses to branded surfwear is on site and don’t forget the Pod Shop for all of your camping needs, supplies and official show merchandise.

8. Autojumble. Not bothered about fitting all of the shiny parts to your VW as long as it does the job? The Big Bang Autojumble could be the answer! There are some great bargains to be had in this second-hand area and you might even find something rare and valuable! On the other hand, if you have a veritable scrapyard of second hand parts at home or just a handful of spares – the Autojumble is the ideal place for you to get it shifted.

9. Cars For Sale. Whether you’re looking for your dream ride or next project, be sure to check out the Cars For Sale area, as there’s bound to be something for you. For sellers, this is the perfect place to advertise your car as there’s nowhere else in the UK that you will find such a large number of VW enthusiasts in one weekend!

BuggyShownShine_bb09djm

10. Show & Shine. Got an awesome custom car, rare original or restored stunner? Whatever species of VW it is, if it looks cool, get it into the Show & Shine on Sunday. It’s free to enter and you’ll be sure to have a crowd to appreciate your efforts. New for 2010 there will be a “Get Yer Rat Out” competition taking place on the Saturday. Due to the Show & Shine’s ever growing popularity they have even separated the rats from the shiners to ensure that no one gets turned away!

CamperHandling_bb09djm

11. Handling Track. Straight lines not really for you? Well this is a great opportunity to show your skills with Big Bang’s handling track. Put your car through its paces in this track designed especially for those lighter, more nimble vehicles – and there’s even a trophy for the quickest time of the day!

12. Wired For Sound. Big Bang has its own radio station, Nitro FM on 96.2FM, tune in, either in your car or bus – or listen out to the on-site PA for some great tunes, useful information and reminders about what’s on and where. Also text in and get your message read out on the air! There was even a marriage proposal via this method once. No idea if she accepted though.

BeetleCamping_bb09djm

13. Designated camping areas. with Santa Pod’s huge grounds, The BB team has separated the camping areas to make the whole experience better for you. There is club camping, for those that want to display your cars in a prime area and reserve space for fellow club members, Family camping for those of you with ankle-biters, quiet camping for those that might just want a peaceful early night, but don’t have kids with you and finally general camping. Wherever you go, please respect your neighbours! A weekend away is no excuse to forget good manners.

14. Alternative Energy Racing. Turn up on the Friday and you will see an entirely different show altogether as Big Bang will be running alongside Alternative Energy Racing. Understanding the effects of the pollution and current world, (Pah!..allegedly.. BB!) Santa Pod Raceway is hosting this event to encourage environmentally friendly race cars and bikes. So, who knows? You could see the future of drag racing at this very event! Peace! Friday will also seethe buses from BWA and USB and the Cal-Look Bugs from Green Heart and SAS re-balancing the ‘carbon footprint’ on the track.

CamperVanTrack_bb09djm

15. The final – and probably the best reason to go to Big Bang – is the price! For a mere £35 on the gate you get access to see everything listed above. Your camping and parking is included, grandstand seats are free, entrance to the music and magic shows are free, you can even enter your own vehicle into the Show & Shine and have a go at the Handling Track, Baja Course, Art Bug and Human Powered Racing for no extra cost! There are many more reasons to attend, but these 15 should give you some idea – miss it – miss out!

GTI Spring Festival 2010

GTI SPRING FESTIVAL

Although the name suggests this is a show with a niche audience, that presumption couldn’t be further from the truth. Each April Santa Pod Raceway near Northampton is swarmed with VWs of all shapes and sizes all coming to enjoy the show and either take part in or just to watch the drag racing action on the world famous strip.

SDC12015
It’s actually a show that welcomes all the current and past vehicles that come under the V.A.G marque. From classic Beetles to Golfs and the latest Audis, Seats and Skoda’s, everything that is related to Volkswagen is invited to take part.

Although only a one day affair, the show attracts a huge amount of interest and marks the first opportunity of the year for V.A.G fans to take part in drag racing exclusively amongst their peers.

SDC11978

I’ve been for several years in a row now and the show just keeps on getting bigger and better. This year was helped by a fantastic weather forecast and as soon as the gates opened at 8am, the cars started to pour in.

The show and shine filled up very quickly and by 11am there were around 200 cars lined up and being shined to death by their owners. The show operates a ‘Top 20’ award system which is the fairest way to ensure the most deserving cars walk away with trophies for their efforts.

The club area was also bursting and was filled to capacity with a huge variation of cars representing their various clubs.

Meanwhile, on the strip, rubber was being burnt all day long with the V.A.G only ‘Run What Ya Brung’. Trophies were awarded to the fastest cars in each of the classes and so people were doing their best to get in as many runs as possible especially because it was a lovely warm day and there was a helpful tailwind. The ‘fire up’ lane was packed all day.

The famous ‘Fireforce Jet Car’ wowed visitors with two sub-6 second passes during the afternoon and with a large number of traders plying their wares, there was plenty for the punters to see and do.

At the end of the afternoon, the trophies were handed out for the show and shine and the drag strip competition and they went to some very deserving participants. The number and quality of the cars on show meant the judges had a very tough job.

Janet Edwardson took top honours in the show and shine for her Lamborghini inspired Mk4 Golf and the main talking point of the day was Andy Waite running three sub-10 second quarter miles. The best was 9.8 seconds at 148 mph! The really crazy thing is that it’s a fully street legal car.

At the end of the afternoon, everyone who attended went home happy and looking forward to VAGfest on July 11th.

Santa Pod Raceway present The Easter Thunderball. Cracking Good Fun!

EASTER THUNDERBALL (VWDRC ROUND)
2nd – 5th APRIL 2010
Santa Pod Raceway, Wellingborough, Northants. NN29 7XA.
01234 782828
http://www.santapod.co.uk/e_easter.php


EASTER6

Santa Pod Raceway, the home of European Drag racing has provided the perfect solution to entertaining yourself – and the whole family for the entire Easter weekend; The Easter Thunderball!

From the 2nd to the 5th of April 2010, Santa Pod will rock the surrounding Northamptonshire countryside with an unashamed spectacle of incredible racing, stunt shows and the best of Europe’s entertainers – including none other than Peter Andre!

EASTER1

This is the only ‘Nitro Shoot-out’ in Europe! So, if your idea of fun is watching an 8,000 horsepower car hitting 300mph in just 5 seconds, then this is the place for you. The entire weekend is packed with top-level racing including the multi-thousand horsepower Top Fuel cars, MSA pro mods and Drag bikes. If that doesn’t make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, then witnessing the sight of two jet cars travelling at Mach 1 or Podzilla, Santa Pod’s very own Monster Truck, might just do it for you!

EASTER3

Add into the mix bike trials displays, wheelie cars and full bar and catering facilities and you’re talking a serious weekend of fun. Also new this year is a full-sized wrestling ring running full-on display bouts over all three days.

EASTER4

It’s not all high-octane madness however, with much of the content of the Easter Thunderball being squarely aimed at families. Not only do kids under 16 get in free (great in these credit crunched times) but the weekend line up includes a magnificent Firework display and even Titan, the 8 foot robot who walks amongst the crowd, amazing (and scaring) kids in equal measure. Stop by the static display of famous cars from “the movies” and see the new Land Speed Record “Bloodhound” car. Plus there’s a funfair, traders, kids entertainments and mini quad rides, meaning whatever the weather does, there’s plenty for the whole family to do.

EASTER5

But the headline stealer without doubt, is Peter Andre – stopping by on the very last day of his tour (the 5th) to perform hits from his latest album, ‘Revelation’. With tickets for his stadium dates all but sold out, this could be the perfect last chance to see him sing live this year.

EASTER2

Advance tickets start at just £10 for the Friday, £29 for the Saturday and Sunday – or only £39 for the whole four days. So, once you’ve factored in the free parking, free camping, free under 16s and free pit walkabouts, it just goes to show that amusing your clan this Easter needn’t leave you penniless!

Posted by volkszone

Santa Pod Raceway, the home of European drag racing has announced its first ‘Saturday Night Special’ (SNS) date for 2010. The 20th of February… and every kind of car and motorbike is invited!

SNS2Feb08djm

As if drag racing your very own pride and joy wasn’t fun enough, Santa Pod’s SNS events let you race throughout the day, with the track firing up at 9am, and then on into the night, under the high output track lights in the most evocative atmosphere in motorsport. Think night racing is the exclusive reserve of professional Top-Fuellers, Le Mans stars and F1 legends? Think again!

SNS08Bikedjm

For the usual fee of £10 admission plus your choice of sign-on fee, you’ll get the usual mix of ‘Run What You Brung’ goodness, with the freedom to exploit the ‘Pod’s ultra-grippy quarter-mile and FIA approved timing gear all day long. With the added advantage of passengers over the age of 17 now allowed to ride under race conditions, it’s the perfect day out for car clubs and enthusiasts.

FireforceSNSfeb08djm

As the light dims however, the action ramps up a gear, with Fireforce, the Pod’s own Jet Funny Car laying down some 270mph display runs and hard-charging racing continuing into the night. Then of course, it’s time to hit the on-site bar, enjoy an evening of free musical entertainment and sink a few beers. With free weekend camping for anyone purchasing a weekend admission ticket (£20 on the gate or just £15 in advance) you can really relax and enjoy yourself – and blow the froth of a couple in the process.

The gates open on Saturday at 8am. Signing on costs £30 per driver for unlimited runs from 9am to 9pm, £25 per driver for unlimited runs from 9am to 4pm, and £10 per driver for unlimited runs from 4pm to 9pm (weather and track conditions permitting). You’ll get full computerised timing slips on each run, measuring your reactions, terminal speed and total quarter mile time. Driving Licences required to run on the strip, but cars running under 110mph on the quarter mile don’t even require the driver to wear a helmet!

As one of life’s ‘must do’ automotive experiences, Drag racing at night rates right up there!. It’s cheap, it’s fun and it’s safe! And best of all you can swap heroic tales in the bar afterwards without worrying about your licence! See you there!

RUSS FELLOWS RUNS 9.34 AT 150MPH! IN A FLOORPAN’D BUG

Posted by volkszone

VETERAN VWDRC RACER KEEPS RAISING THE BAR

On 10th September 2009, longtime VWDRC Racer, Russ Fellows ran the Santa Pod quarter mile in 9.34 seconds at a crazy 150mph in his ‘street legal’, floorpan’d Bug at the Euro Finals.

RUSS FELLOWS' 9-SECOND 'STREET LEGAL' BUG

RUSS FELLOWS' 9-SECOND 'STREET LEGAL' BUG

Russ had just ran the quarter in 9.36 seconds the weekend before at the very popular VW Action event, also at Santa Pod. This undoubtedly makes him the quickest man in the UK in a full-bodied, floorpan’d VW.

Russ started Drag Racing his Bug back in the the early nineties in the old VWDRC ‘Street’ class and steadily progressed through ‘Super Street’ to ‘Modified’ winning many class championships along the way. When the VWDRC classes were re-structured Russ moved into VW Pro, where he still regularly competes.

RUSS FELLOWS COLLECTS HIS VW ACTION HALL OF FAME 'OSCAR'

RUSS FELLOWS COLLECTS HIS VW ACTION HALL OF FAME 'OSCAR'

VW Action also saw Russ inducted into both the VW Action 9-second Speed Club and the VW Action Hall Of Fame – where ‘movers and shakers’ from within the VW Scene are rewarded for their efforts with a VW Action ‘Oscar’. Never was there a more deserving case, Russ’s long term to commitment to ‘going quicker’ sets a wonderful example to all would-be racers.

BURROWS RETIRES

VW Action also saw the last ever run up the dragstrip from another veteran VWDRC Racer, Brian Burrows. Brian has retired from drag racing and decided to bow out in style, whilst realising one of his all time ambitions – a launch in a Fuel Funny Car. The car in question belongs to the Shockwave team, who allowed Brian to rent a ride in the car during the night racing session at the VW Action event on Saturday 5th September. Both Santa Pod race directors, Darren Prentice and Ian Marshall were very complimentary about Brian’s burnout, stage and launch which certainly didn’t look like it was his first ever (and only) drive of a Fuel Flopper.

BRIAN BURROWS PILOTS THE 'SHOCKWAVE' FUEL FUNNY CAR IN THE DUSK AT VW ACTION 2009

BRIAN BURROWS PILOTS THE 'SHOCKWAVE' FUEL FUNNY CAR IN THE DUSK AT VW ACTION 2009

Brian has campaigned many different VWs in the VWDRC Race Series over the years – including winning a championship in the UK’s first ever New Beetle and more recently racing a gorgeous 1957 Oval Bug. His Outrage II VW Funny car still holds the world record for VW AF/C – set way back in 1993.

OUTRAGE!!

OUTRAGE!!

We at Volkszone would like to wish Brian a long and happy retirement and congratulate Russ on his amazing achievement(s). Way to go fellahs!
