Drag Racing Charity Bed Push
at Santa Pod Raceway!
Easter Weekend Mar 30th/April 1st
The Drag Racing season officially starts at Santa Pod Raceway this Easter Weekend and kicks off with a highly unusual kind of Drag Race!
Two teams from the charity will take to the famous quarter mile on Easter Saturday with our first ever Charity Bed Push Drag Race! The teams are all representing the charity Sue Ryder Care which supports people with a wide range of disabilities and life-shortening diseases, as well as their families, carers and friends both in this country and abroad.
It is hoped that a significant amount of money will be raised for this good cause as well as putting a smile on the faces of drag racing fans attending the Easter Thunderball race meeting at Santa Pod.
The season officially starts here with around 150 of the fastest cars and bikes on earth. Top Fuel Dragsters will be competing against Fuel Funny Cars in a spectacular show of speed. Both cars burn highly explosive Nitromethane fuel and are 8 times more powerful than Formula One. Each car races at 6000 bhp, reaching nearly 300mph in around 5 seconds accelerating from 0– 100mph in under 1 second!
A Pro-Fuel Shootout is also confirmed for Easter Bank Holiday Weekend at Santa Pod Raceway. The shootout will take the form of Top Fuel Dragsters against Nitro Funny Cars, two classes not normally seen racing against each other! Whilst the event is held over 3 days (Sat,Sun,Mon) the Pro-Fuel Shootout will feature on Easter Sunday & Monday.
The event also sees Round One of the MSA British Methanol Championships and The National Drag Racing Championships and spectacular bike action will come from the 200mph British Top Fuel Bikes. There will also be displays from 2 fire-spitting Jet Cars and the ever-popular Custom Car Street Eliminator Series. Supporting classes include Super Mod, Super Classes, ET Brackets, ACU Drag Bikes and Junior Dragsters.
