Santa Pod RWYB Saturday April 26th


Wind Deflector Trend-setter
There's a few of us heading up to the Santa Pod raceway for Run What Ya Brung on Saturday April 26th.

Its £10.00 entry and then £25.00 for unlimited runs through the day if you want to put your car to the test (must bring both parts of your licence for this).

Weather was lovely when I went the same time last year so hoping for nice weather again this year!

All welcome to join us for what should be a great day out!

Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire offers the cheapest and most accessible public track time in the UK.
For just £10 admission and £25 to "sign on", you can take your car and motorcycle out on the famous quarter-mile dragstrip and test it's performance limits in a safe and legal environment.

You don't have to apply for a race licence, you don't have to tape over your lights, you don't even have to own a fast car or bike! Your mum's Fiesta or street bike would do the job fine and most of the drivers who come along will be racing in normal road cars and bikes. Some, however, may have slight modifications or even be professional racers in their drag cars and bikes but don't worry, you won't be pitched against a 300mph Top Fuel Dragster!

The only thing you need to go drag racing at the famous Santa Pod Raceway is a valid driving licence (UK, European or International), £10 for admission and a £25 signing-on fee. You'll be entitled to unlimited runs or as many as your nerves will allow! After each run you'll receive a personal performance print-out showing your reaction times to the start lights, 60ft, 1/4 mile, 1/8 mile times and terminal speed. If you really get hooked you could then apply for a competition licence and enter a street class at a proper race meeting because, don't forget, the RWYB days are how most of the professional racers get started.

Also, throughout the year there are specialist events and festivals which incorporate Run What Ya Brung, including car only, bike only and manufacturer-specific events. Prices vary for these events, please see the calendar for more info.

For further information call Santa Pod on (01234) 782828, and make sure you view our RWYB Guides for essential info.

Venue normally opens at 8.00am with track runs starting at 9:30am - 5pm, weather and track conditions dependant. Opening times vary for specialist events.

Some RWYB meetings are busy than others, longer waiting times can be expected at a RWYB before a big Drag Race meeting as drag cars down testing take longer to stage. On the plus side you sometimes get to see Europe's fastest cars running on the same strip as you.

Don't forget your driving licence! Helmets required for all bikes and open top cars, and any vehicles doing 110 mph or more at the finish line. Arm straps required in open top cars. Full Rules & Regulations here.
