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
Santa Pod remains the fastest all-asphalt dragstrip in the world since most
North American tracks are partially or entirely concrete in construction.
