Santa Pod Raceway

FIA/FIM Main Event 2021

Fri 28th to Mon 31st May 2021

FIA European Drag Racing Championships Inc FIM Europe Drag Bikes

Round 1 of the FIA/FIM European Championships is one of Santa Pod's most prestigious Drag Race meetings. This hugely popular, televised extravaganza features over 200 teams and 17 classes of cars and bikes including the sports F1 class – 8000bhp Top Fuel Dragsters accelerating 0-100mph in less than 1 second, making this event unrivalled for both the quality and quantity of racing.

As well as the Drag Racing there's fun for all the family with a full line up of entertainment suitable for kids and adults alike, this is the ultimate family day out for the bank holiday weekend.

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.
