Santa Pod, the home of European Drag racing is getting ready for Europe’s most exhilarating and prestigious drag racing event; the FIA/UEM European Finals. This televised final round of the European Drag Racing Championships is the most popular event in the European motorsport calendar, and boasts the largest race entry of any other. Over 300 teams and 16 race classes go head-to-head to be the very best, making this event unrivalled for both the quality and quantity of racing. Don’t miss it – get it in your diary now! Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 September 2012.

Showcasing 300mph Top Fuel dragsters, flying up the strip in less than five seconds, Pro Mod doorslammers and Supertwin Drag Bikes, the event displays the right combination of cars and bikes to keep even the most diehard of drag racing fans gripped with excitement and screaming for more.

Watch the best of British go up against their European counterparts. Make a weekend out of it, by camping on-site, you can taste-test the fine array of catering and bar facilities available, before relaxing with full evening entertainment in the Fuelers Bar. Santa Pod welcomes families by providing a wealth of kid’s entertainment, including fun fair rides, a radio-controlled car track and fireworks display but best of all, kids under 16 can go for free!
If the racing wasn’t impressive enough, in-between the track action you will experience the insane spectacle that is the Fireforce Jet Funny Car, and new for this year is the outrageously quick Maksar diesel racing truck. Off track, there will be the usual crazed Monster Truck battles and breathtaking stunts in the Live Action Arena, on both Saturday & Sunday. To mix it up a little bit more – and take you to the skies – on Saturday, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be making a fly past with a Dakota, and on Sunday, World Aerobatic Championships competitor Mark Jefferies will be performing a gravity defying air display.

Adrenaline junkies will be amazed by the former Stunt Riding World Champion Zoltan Angyal with his high altitude show and ‘Quad Space Wheel’, The Vander brothers from South Africa will start out on the Flying Trapeze before performing on their Space Wheels. Wannabe stunt drivers will also be in awe of internationally renowned Stunt Driver Terry Grant, who can dodge death by running in and out of a spinning car while performing an array of heart-stopping stunts.

Advance tickets for the event start at just £25 to enjoy all of Friday’s race action, or £30 for Saturday or Sunday. You can enjoy both days (Sat/Sun) for £59, or go for it, and purchase a four day ticket for just £65. As the kids go free, it could be one of the best value weekenders of the year for you and your family! Corporate packages look similarly good value, with VIP packages available – or if you have already booked your ticket, you can simply upgrade to enjoy the VIP experience.
