"Just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge Thank You for yesterday.  Rob had an awesome experience and I have shown everyone in the office this morning and to add the fact that I got to be driven through the paddock back to the pit space was fab!" - Cheryl Lynch

"I just wanted to drop you and the team at Santa Pod a quick line to say ‘Thank You’ for another great weekend at the Pod. Also a Thank you to yourself and Steve’s Team for the 2 seater ride. My Dad was well looked after by the team on site, as was I. The ride was great, he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and had a beaming smile for the rest of the weekend. It really was a thrill ride and an experience we’ll never forget. The guys on the 2 seater team were very professional and were happy to accommodate our ride time to ensure the rest of our group were around to be part of the experience as well. Definitely an amazing way to celebrate his 75th year!!" - Lloyd Wright

"Yesterday I was privileged, through the generosity of my three sons, to experience a ride in your dragster. From the start the friendly attitude of the team tempered with an underlying efficiency was impressive and which I found settling as was the professional briefing and the well practiced procedures undertaken. The ride was awesome, experiencing the sheer power of the machine is something I shall never forget. Good luck to Steve and all the team, may you have much success." - Kenn Baron

"@SantaPodRaceway I recommend this to anyone who loves speed,the rush you get is amazing. Defo doing it again next year" - Emily Paley
