Santa Pod presents The Retro Show. Back to the past, fast

The Retro Show at Santa Pod Raceway is the laid-back but action-packed day at the races for classic and retro car fans. This inclusive event doesn’t turn it’s nose up at modifications, all makes and models are welcome, and everything from the 50’s to the 90’s will feel right at home. Cars, bikes, trucks and scooters are all welcome, and as long as you aren’t bothered about all the mod-cons of modern motoring, you’ll have a blast!The difference between The Retro Show and virtually all other classic motoring events is that this show positively encourages you to take part and give your cherished ride a bit of welly. The internationally-famous Santa Pod dragstrip will be available for “Run What Ya Brung” – that’s your chance to get your car or bike on the dragstrip with full timing and performance print-outs. The track is also being used for round 3 of the Euro Sports Compact drag series, where some of the fastest modified cars in the country go head-to-head.1st July 2012

There is also autotest track available which is FREE to enter, so if you have a car that might be a bit lost on the dragstrip, maybe try the tight corners and test of skill that the autotest presents?

More full-throttle retro action can be found in the Live Action Arena, where monster trucks will be pulverizing some worthless scrappers, and retro drifters will be demonstrating some extreme car control in classic Fords. The Fireforce Jet Car will be thundering down the dragstrip too – not exactly retro, but who needs excuses to watch a genuine 270mph missile?

For a more sedate take on the show, there is a static Show & Shine competition, with prizes for the best presented vehicles. No pre-entry required… just show up and shine up! Full details on the website. RetroShow.co.uk
