A small compilation of the Main Event of a couple days ago.
Sadly, the black Plymouth owned by Henning Blume crashed the last day. Does anyone have more information about him and the car?

Santa Pod Festival of Power 2013 - Kevin Slyfield incident
Firstly, and most importantly, the driver was OK and walked from the car!
He made a wobbly start and unfortunately it got worse, luckily just the car
was hurt. The conditions were pretty terrible with intermittent snow
showers and very low temperatures.

TURBO BIKES AT SANTA POD
HUGE thanks to Dave MDM Manning from Streetfighters Magazine for looking
after us at Santa Pod. The only man in history to rock up to an English
drag strip on a cold day wearing shorts.
4 wide Top Fuel Drag Race Z Max Dragway, Great veiw must see!!! 30,000+ H.P.!!!
spencer Massey, driver of the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco dragster; Brandon
Bernstein, driver of the Budweiser/Lucas Oil dragster; Antron Brown, driver
of the Matco Tools dragster; and Morgan Lucas, driver of the Geico
Powersports/Lucas Oil dragster.
I was one of the lucky few who got one of the best filming and none crowded
spots at the strip. I filmed it in the suites. It was very crazy and I cant
wait till they do it again next year! The ground shook like crazy and it
was very loud. All cars made it down the track fairly fast. Thanks Burton
for such a spectacular expedition race.
