Santa Pod's All American Show 1st to 2nd May 2010

Over Sized, Over Powered - and Over Here.


If your idea of 'proper' transport involves acres of chrome, a displacement measured

in cubic inches and plenty of cylinders, then you'll love the All American Show at

Santa Pod Raceway from the 1st to the 2nd  of May 2010.


For one weekend, the Northamptonshire countryside echoes to the blissful sound of

big block Hemis and flathead Fords, as the cream of the UK's American cars and their

enthusiastic owners descend on the venue for a weekend of racing, dancing.. and fun!

Although it's a Yank-lovers paradise, the event is for all genres of custom, classic

and retro car AND bike owners, so whether you're running a Chevy - or a Chevette,

you'll be made very welcome.


Precious metal from both sides of the pond is welcome with 'Run What You Brung'

sessions all weekend to allow pub arguments on who can out-drag who to be finally

settled. Just bring your driving licence  - and if you'll be travelling faster than

110mph a helmet - and tear up the World famous quarter mile! This year, the 'Pod is

also allowing passengers carrying a valid UK licence to ride shotgun in any car that

will have them - and weekend tickets even include entry to the additional RWYB event

on Monday the 3rd!. 


The Mopar Muscle Association Power Tour will also be flexing its muscles on the

strip, with these powerful RWD machines looking to make the most consistently quick

runs to win. Nostalgia fans will also love the sight of classic 'slingshot' and

classic dragster 'old timers' tearing up the quarter, rather than gracing a museum



It's not just about V8 grudge matches on the strip however, with a full programme of

live bands with suitable transatlantic rock-and-roll set-lists to provide the

perfect soundtrack for those who prefer their music not to come from a set of



The ticket price also includes entry to the Monster Truck Nationals on the 1st,

where you can witness the incredible sight of these car-crushing monsters racing

each other and performing stunts that truly defy the laws of physics.   The Live

Action arena also hosts the ever-popular 'Burn Out' competition, where anybody with

a heavy right foot and a spare set of tyres can become a hero for the day.


There's a hotly contested Show and Shine on the Sunday to satisfy the most ardent of

polishers, and with the Top 10 trophies, open to the entire spectrum of two and four

wheeled Yank ownership, there's no excuse for not breaking out the Autoglym!


There's free camping of course, with an RV area for those lucky souls who are really

living 'The American Dream', fun fair rides to keep the kids (both young and old)

happy and a mobile dyno, just in case you didn't get the result you wanted on the

quarter! Best of all, under 16s get in free and clubs are extremely welcome, with

discount structures in place for groups turning up en masse and a huge designated

club area on tarmac to allow you all to park up in formation.
