Santa Pod Raceway Presents Flame and Thunder

Fri, 16 Oct 2009

As family days out go, the incredible family firework spectacular that is Santa Pod Raceway's Flame and Thunder takes some beating! This incredible melee of high-speed metal, music, monster trucks and madness offers something for everyone -whether you're 8 or 80! Make a date in your diary for Saturday the 31st of October.

An incredibly diverse range of acts and attractions means that throughout the day, a non-stop mix of action and amusement showcases some of the most prodigious talent and potent machinery ever to be gathered in one place.

True race fans and petrolheads will delight in the 8,000 horsepower Top Fuel dragsters and Nitro-fuelled Funny Cars will be pounding the strip throughout the day, as well as the World's fastest Jet-powered race cars. These madmen strap themselves to over 10,000 horsepower of afterburning jet engine to cover the quarter mile in just over 5 seconds at a shade under 300mph. Not for the faint hearted!

Equally impressive and almost as loud is the Live Action Arena where the car-crushing talents of Santa Pod's resident Monster Truck, Podzilla vies for attention alongside multiple Guinness World Record holder Terry Grant and his incredible stunt show. Mix in UKFMX, Britain's best Freestyle Motocross team and leading quad bike showman Jason Smythe - and you've got the ingredients for a superb show.

Music fans will delight at the headline signing of 'Navi' on the music stage. Navi is universally recognised as 'The World's Number 1 Michael Jackson Impersonator' - even having been hired by the late, great artiste himself. Not only does he look exactly like Michael, but every move, note and dance step is eerily recreated with absolute perfection to give the complete experience of one of Michael's concerts. One not to miss!

From the sublime - to the ridiculous, ace car builder Perry Watkins will also be showcasing 'The Flatmobile' the World's lowest car - and 'Wind Up' the World's smallest vehicle. Also Titan, the amazing 8 foot tall interactive robot will be walking amongst the crowd, delighting and terrifying in equal measure. The Black Knights Parachute Display Team will also be quite literally 'dropping in' later in the day with their unique display of skill and control.

But there's still more! Bike and Motorcycle trial displays, Drifting demos, Kids Entertainers and even a full funfair. Or why not take a pleasure flight in a helicopter and see the whole lot from the air?

But of course, it wouldn't be Flame and Thunder without a spectacular firework display and huge bonfire - and this year, the Santa Pod team have really pulled out
the stops to create a memorable evening. As the light dims, a fully sequenced firework display will delight the crowd and will then be followed by a choreographed Hot Air Balloon glow display.

With under 16s getting in for free, advance tickets starting at just £17 and more acts and attractions in one day than most show goers see in a whole year, it's the essential family day out of 2009! Just don't forget your hat and coat!
