Run In Support Of Sport Relief At Santa Pod’s Fast Show
Petrolheads and car enthusiasts have never needed much excuse to attend Santa Pod’s season opening Fast Show -this year on the 21st of March – but, for 2010, there’s yet another great reason to visit the world famous quarter mile -to raise money for Sport Relief!
During the lunch break, all guests will be invited down onto the Pods hallowed tarmac, running the quarter mile track and its similarly sized run-off, before turning around and running back. By asking everyone to donate a minimum of a pound towards Sport Relief whilst running a measured mile, Santa Pod hopes to raise a sizeable sum on the day.
‘If you’ve ever wanted to run on our track, this has to be the cheapest way to do it!’ laughed Santa Pod’s general manager, David Lloyd Jones. ‘As the Fast Show fell on the day of Sport Relief’s official day, we thought this would be a fun way to try and raise a little extra money for them – and allow our guests to jog off their lunch! We’ve also got the Eurosport and Motors TV camera crews here covering the event, so as well as doing your bit for charity, who knows? You might end up on the telly as well!’
As well as the feel-good factor off the fund-raising activity, the show also has a lot to offer. From hot hatches and retros to full-blown supercars, everyone is represented at The Fast Show, making it easily the most diverse of all Santa Pod events… probably because everyone is desperate to get out and play with their cars after a long winter!
With Run What Ya Brung, dyno and a handling track, you’ll have a chance to press the pedal to the metal and stock up on pub ammo to fire at your mates, along with all sorts of activities off track, including the hilarious Miss Fast Show, popular Show & Shine competition, traders, monster truck show and stunt shows.
Weekend ticket holders can enjoy an extra day of Run What Ya Brung, and all weekend tickets include free camping and entry to the new and improved Pod Palais – a heated nightclub with top DJs, plush furnishings and even exotic dancers on Saturday night.
Tickets start from just £15 for a Sunday ticket, and £25 for a weekend ticket.
