304 MPH Santa Pod Top Fuel Drag Racing
8000HP Top Fuel Dragsters in the European Finals In real life you don't hear Top Fuelers, you feel them!!! Turn up the volume to give you some idea. As the editor of Road and Track magazine once said "I had never seen a Top Fuel Dragster warm its tires in a burnout before, and I was stunned. The rear slicks grow as the centrifugal force acts upon the soft compound rubber, until the tires appear to be twice the size.Its all still vividly in my mind all these years later, cemented in place by the NOISE! To this day, having spent a lot of time around all manner of race cars, I can truthfully say that I have never experienced that sort of incredibly ferocious noise; a sound that is like some huge monster ripping apart a steel billet with its bare hands in front of the worlds largest amplifier. Engine response is quick and nearly terrifying in its shriek. And as the revs run up, the pain in your ears is magnified by the bones of your skull and then starts to pierce your organs and your limbs."

Santa Pod Crash - Graham Ellis - 21st September 2013
The track had been wet earlier, the drier and tractor had been out. A few runs by others had been a mixture of good and slightly wobbly. And then Graham had this big crash. We heard from race control that he was conscious and as a precautionary measure was airlifted to hospital. We all hope he gets well soon!

Santa Pod 37 Minutes Of Pure Drag Racing Fun May 26th 2013 European Championships
Santa Pod 37 Minutes Of Pure Drag Racing Fun May 26th 2013 European Championships at Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire, England, opened at Easter in 1966, is Europe's first permanent drag racing venue. It was built on a disused World War II American air base, RAF Podington, once used by the 92nd Bomber Group. It is now the home of European drag racing and has grown substantially over its 40-year existence. It hosts both the first and last round of the FIA and FIM/UEM European Drag Racing Championship, along with the British National Drag Racing Championships. It is leased and operated by Trakbak Racing which is based in London. Santa Pod regularly takes its promotional units to major events in motor sport and contributes much to the local community. Santa Pod is the venue in which the current world drag racing record, a time of 3.58 seconds at 386.26 mph (621.61 km/h) was set by Sammy Miller in his Vanishing Point rocket-propelled funny car in July 1984. Another record has also been set at Santa Pod, the world's fastest jet car (notably Santa Pod's "resident") Fireforce 3 piloted by Martin Hill broke the record in Easter 2005 with a terminal speed of 336.10 mph (540.88 km/h). Several other European drag racing records have been set along with records unsurpassed outside the USA. In May 2010 Top Fuel dragster driver Urs Erbacher set a class speed record with a terminal speed of 314.87 mph reached in less than 5 seconds. At the same race meeting Eric Teboul set a time of 5.23 seconds at 249 mph on his Hydrogen Peroxide Rocket Bike, which he further improved to 5.19 seconds at the European championships in September 2010. Santa Pod remains the fastest all-asphalt dragstrip in the world since most North American tracks are partially or entirely concrete in construction.
