Santa Pod Raceway


KitFest - NEW for 2019!

Fri 14th to Sun 16th June 2019

North West Kit Car Owners Club and Santa Pod Raceway have joined forces to host the eagerly anticipated KitFest; a show for owners and enthusiasts of all makes and models of kit cars.

From Tigers to Cobras, Lotus 7s to Caterhams, you’re sure to see them all at this weekend long event at the home of European Drag Racing. KitFest will be open to all kit car owners to come and enjoy the festival vibe with the added bonus of racing each other out on the famous quarter mile. But if racing isn’t for you, don’t worry, there will be plenty going on for you and your kit car side kick to get involved with!

With so many traditional kit car shows disappearing, NWKCOG and Complete Kit Car Magazine have teamed up to create an exciting and adrenaline-fueled line up both on and off the track; new announcements coming soon!

KitFest will run in conjunction with Santa Pod Raceway’s Retro Show.

Retro Show

Retro Show Sunday 16th June 2019

Included with Kit Fest tickets is admission to Retro Show!

Santa Pod Raceway transports you Back to the Past…Fast!

The Retro Show is a classic car and bike show with a difference. Unlike most shows where you park up in a field and sip tea, as always, we bring you an extravaganza of full throttle action where you can take part in the racing and show & shine events regardless of the type of retro machinery you are the proud owner of.

The Retro Show kicks off the summer celebrating the UK classic car scene. Mint originals, restored classics and modified retros will assemble in abundance, showcasing a diverse and dynamic collection of the finest automobiles in the country. Don’t miss out on Retro Drag Racing classes aplenty, Jets galore with Oklahoma Willy – The VW Jet Pick Up & FireForce 5 – The Jet Dragster, Autoglym Show & Shine, Run What Ya Brung, Autotest, Retro Drifting, Live Music and plenty more. Full details at Kids under 13 FREE*
