  • Much improved facilities over the years, yet still retains the old charm and party style atmosphere. Even the loss of a full day's racing with bad weather did nothing to dampen (pun fully intended) a brilliant, brilliant weekend with some great off track entertainment! If you like your racing fast, noisy and constant, then (weather permitting), there is no place better in the UK than Santa Pod.
  • This place is probably the best place for any petrol head to get their fix. The main event is a fantastic time for everyone, and at a fraction of the price of the much slower and less exciting F1. Where else can you get up to 5 nights camping and 4 days of non stop action for £75? (Early bird price). Facilities are very good. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Pits are open 24hrs and the teams and drivers are always willing to have a chat. It's impossible to put into words how it feels when 2 Top Fuel dragsters go past on full throttle...... mind blowing machines which you will have to experience so that you understand it.
  • Great place for family day out. We watched Monster Track Nationals. Very impressed. You can also watch 1/4 mile drag races.
  • Really entertaining. Cool cars, motorbikes were a bit boring though. Once you've seen a couple they all seem very similar. The cars are all different though. Ear defenders or good plugs are an absolute must have, and you couldn't bring a young child safely without them. Very, very loud.
  • You've got to go if you love cars and racing. First time going and I'll be going again! Amazing time.
