Flame & Thunder 2021

Saturday 30th October 2021

Stunts & Drag Racing Family Firework Spectacular

Flame & Thunder is an action packed day for all the family featuring motorsport stunts and Drag Racing. Witness a huge gathering of jet vehicles and experience 300mph Nitro guzzling Top Fuel dragster along with cars and bikes from various classes of Drag Racing and plenty more action off track. The climax of the day will be a firework display.

We are pleased to announce this 2021 date. The exact line-up for this event will be announced in due course as we understand more about the COVID-19 restrictions that may be in place nearer the time. In 2020, Santa Pod Raceway was proud to have become a COVID secure venue and operated several events successfully throughout the changes in Government guidelines. Santa Pod was able to accommodate full drag racing track action together with a range of exhibition vehicles on and around the drag strip as well as the popular camping element to our shows. Grandstand viewing, show car displays, catering and trade stands, were all executed in an approved COVID secure manner so you can expect all those kind of activities again at the very least but we’re hoping to expand our offering of course!

Tickets and more information will be coming soon. Thank you for your patience.

COVID-19: At Santa Pod Raceway the safety and welfare of racegoers, participants and our staff is our highest priority. To ensure our site is Covid secure, visitors will find hygiene, social distancing and safety measures around site in line with Government guidance.
