Festival of Power 2020 Suspended
Update on the Festival of Power: Corona Virus (COVID-19)
Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, it is with deep regret that Santa Pod Raceway announces Festival of Power is suspended.
We ask all our customers to be patient with us at this time and NOT to flood our Box Office with calls and emails when pressure is at its highest as this could be counterproductive. Rest assured, we will be contacting all customers with further details on arrangements regarding tickets and rescheduled event dates. We would like to thank you for your understanding during these very challenging circumstances.
We are absolutely devastated to not be running these season opening events given the far-reaching impact it will have; not forgetting the financial implications and the huge amount of preparation and work that our staff, teams and fans have put into the planning. It is only with your support that we can host the shows and race events that we all know and love.
At Santa Pod Raceway the safety and welfare of racegoers and participants is paramount. Please view the latest information regarding how the situation is affecting events at Santa Pod Raceway on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.
