The Performance Tuning and Modified Show at Santa Pod Raceway has always been the grown-up all-action show for those into modifying cars. If you’re the sort of person who would rather listen to the song of your engine than a bangin’ stereo, or someone who chooses alloys based on which are the lightest rather than the ones that look the best, then the PTM Show is for you. It’s no-nonsense, wall-to-wall performance, and unlike at many car shows, Santa Pod Raceway gives monster-powered cars somewhere to unleash the beast. The 2009 show has some great new additions to make it even more interesting for speed freaks, and real racing will be a prominent feature of this year’s event.
With the HKS Drag Series running four classes at the PTM Show, expect to see the fastest Japanese cars in Europe going even faster than last year, and the Euro Sports Compact class will be packed with modified European hatches running times on the drag strip that would humiliate a supercar. A major new edition for the 2009 show is the King of Europe Competition, which will attract mega-quick street legal cars from around Europe to go head to head on track, with qualifying on Saturday and eliminations on Sunday. With so much real racing taking place, Run What Ya Brung slots are restricted at this year’s event, so check out the official website for details.
Alongside the dragstrip will be a large drift track and “show & go” competition and of course, the pit areas will be packed with firebreathing modified cars you can get up close and personal with. The PTM Show takes place on the 9th & 10th May 2009 at Santa Pod Raceway. Full event info and tickets are available online at www.PTMShow.co.uk or by calling 01234 782 828. Club display and camping pitches are available.
