Festival of Power

About

An action packed Easter weekend with fun for all the family! The Festival of Power at Santa Pod Raceway assembles the fastest cars and drivers in Europe – and runs them almost non-stop for 3 days in a haze of speed, smoke and glorious noise!

Top-level Drag Racing forms the backbone of the show with the European Nitro Funny Cars topping the bill with 8,000 horsepower at its finest. The ever popular Jet Car show returns, with your only chance to see these awesome machines run side by side – make sure you get a seat at the front!

Alongside a packed itinerary of racing action, Santa Pod has also laid on an extensive programme of stunt artists and display drivers and riders to really delight the capacity crowds. Santa Pod's own Podzilla Monster Truck will butt heads with its arch nemesis, Swamp Thing to compete for top honours in the Live Action Arena or if you fancy getting a feel for the art yourself, why not jump into the back of the Red Dragon Monster Truck for a passenger ride and crush a few cars of your own?
The entertainment off-track is just as spectacular with an array of stunt and exhibition demonstrations including the ever popular car-crushing Monster Trucks, dazzling family entertainment and multiple 2-wheeled mayhem!
An extensive trade village gives you the chance to spend your hard-earned money, and with fully licensed bars and a vast array of delicious catering options on site, you are sure to have a great time.
