The Vauxhall Show

Car Show on Sunday 2nd June 2024 at Santa Pod Raceway

With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 1st June 2024

Vauxhalls take over Santa Pod with Vauxhall only RWYB, Show & Shine and more! The famous Griffin comes to Santa Pod in the form of The Vauxhall Show welcoming everything from performance Vauxhall Astras to custom Viva’s, Opels and Holdens to the drag strip and show ground alike. As well as being renowned for reliability, affordability and even modify-ability(!?), Vauxhalls have become a popular choice for everyone from new drivers to the current crop of everyday petrol heads. The drag strip will be ready and waiting for abuse so VXR owners should need no encouragement to make the most of an opportunity to drop the clutch and test their vehicles performance in a safe and legal environment.
