The Marangoni Fast Show. Sunday 22nd March 2009

Santa Pod Raceway may be the home of European Drag Racing, but come the 22nd of March it becomes a petrolhead’s hedonistic paradise in the form of the Marangoni Fast Show.

Once again, the respected tyre manufacturer is presenting an electric mix of automotive related japery in a party atmosphere that promises something for everyone. Whether you prefer modified metal, retro rides, ‘show’, ‘go’ or just like a good old party, this is the place for you.

With ‘Run What You Brung’ sessions running throughout the day, Would-be racers can test their mettle against their mates, wheel to wheel on the FIA approved strip, or if you prefer, sit back and watch the pros do it during the demo runs. Round 1 of the Euro Sports Compact race series is also running at the event to showcase some of the UK’s fastest pocket rockets.

The World-famous Jet car will be defying the laws of physics (and sanity) with a few 270mph passes, whilst those that prefer things a little more serene can enter – or peruse- the Autoglym Show Car paddock where the cream of the country’s most finely prepared cars battle for top honours.

Once you’ve had your fill on the quarter mile, why not try your hand at the FREE handling circuit? – or take in one of the breathtaking drift displays. With Club areas to check out too, there’s bound to something that takes your fancy. If you still have something to prove, head on over to the dyno area to see exactly what power your car is putting out.

Keeping you entertained are stunt legend, Terry Grant and Santa Pod’s own Monster Truck ‘Podzilla’. Or, If you’re feeling really brave, why not book a ride in the incredible 7 second 2 seater drag car. Guaranteed, you’ll be one of the fastest people down the strip all day! For a smoother, more relaxing experience, take to the skys with a helicopter pleasure flight for the perfect birds-eye view.

If you prefer your soundtrack to be of the musical variety, The Pod Palais, a fully heated nightclub hosting DJ Richie Don, should keep you amused and rocking through the Saturday night. This too is free for all weekend ticket holders and boasts pole dancers and a banging atmosphere. The Fuellers bar is also open all weekend, so get parked up and get the party started!

With the Nuts Girls, Miss Fast Car competition, a fun fair and full entertainment and camping making sure you never get bored, what are you waiting for? Click to or call the ticket hotline on 01234 782828 to get yours booked now.
