Posted by volkszone

Santa Pod Raceway, the home of European Drag Racing has just released its full 2010 calendar. In-keeping with previous seasons, Santa Pod offers something for everyone throughout the year, mixing classics, modified metal, bikes, music, fireworks and of course racing! Lots and lots of racing!!! Basically, if you enjoy a great day out, there’s bound to be something there you’ll love. Best of all, in these credit-crunching times, kids under the age of 16 get in for free at almost all of Santa Pod’s major events throughout the year, so taking the clan needn’t mean breaking the bank!

Drag fans will also love September’s National Finals between the 9th and 11th, and Jap fans who didn’t get enough in June can visit the Japshow finale on the 3rd of October. Finally the year ends in a bang with the eyeful that is Flame and Thunder on the 30th of October and the Fireworks Frenzy on Bonfire Night.

Of course, in between these massive events lie a plethora of ‘Run What You Brung’ and ‘Drift What You Brung’ days where petrol-heads can thrash the living daylights out of their own car in total safety, without falling foul of the law. In addition, there are literally dozens of marque-specific and club based events throughout the year to ensure that no matter what your church, there’s a Santa Pod event to suit.
