"The Main Event" with Darryl Bradford's Union Jack Top Fuel Dragster for the Jubilee Weekend, June 1st-3rd.

1st Round of the FIA European Drag Racing Championship.

Santa Pod Raceway's, Main Event, June 1st-3rd, promises to be The Fastest Jubilee celebration featuring the Quickest Race Cars on Earth-- the Top Fuel Dragsters, capable of 300mph in 5 seconds. Leading the entry list, and making his first appearance in the Formula One class of drag racing, will be British driver, Darryl Bradford (Bexhill) in his new Union Jack Top Fuel Dragster.

Bradford will be up against Europe's best drivers in the 1st Round of the FIA European Drag Racing Championship. The Championship also includes 180mph Pro-Stock cars and the hotly contested Top Methanol classes for 250mph dragsters and Funny Cars.

Europe's future drag racing champions will also be in action in the Junior Dragster category where youngsters from 8 years old reach speeds up to 80mph.

The Main Event also includes Round 1 of the FIM/UEM European Drag Bike Championship. The 200mph Top Fuel Bikes are so fast that the riders, who literally lay over the monster engine, can be swept off the machines if they raise their fingers off the handle bars, such is the wind resistance!

Drag Racing is cheaper than most other motorsports and, unlike other motorsports, entry guarantees access to the paddocks where you can see the quickest race cars on earth and meet the people who race them!

Keith Bartlett, Santa Pod CEO, FIA European Drag Racing Promoter:

"Drag Racing gives you more racing per pound than any other motorsport. There will be a huge variety of cars and bikes at the Main Event, headed by the FIA Professional Classes. They have to be seen and heard to be believed!"

Sportsman classes, Jet Cars, a funfair, bungee rides, helicopter rides, side-shows, music and traders complete the line-up of entertainment.
