Sunday 2nd July 2017 at Santa Pod Raceway with RWYB Saturday 1st July
The BMW Show at Santa Pod Raceway will be back for 2016 with a new summer date and all BMWs are welcome- race cars, show cars, modern, retros, classics, new minis and BMW bikes.
BMWs have all the right elements to make great drag and drift cars. Powerful engines, rear-wheel drive and stable handling all add up to unbeatable straight-line and sideways fun. It's no wonder so many BMW owners are hooked on Run What Ya Brung and Drift What Ya Brung events at Santa Pod Raceway. It's for this reason that Santa Pod introduced an event exclusively for BMW owners, where the track is open only to Bavaria's finest. Camping is available to all those that wish to stay for an extra day of fun at the Pod with RWYB on Saturday and music in Fuelers bar on Saturday night plus fun fair rides.

All vehicles that run during the day are put into classes and there are trophies for the quickest in each class.

Autoglym Show & Shine Competition (BMWs Only)
Got a sweet BMW show car? Whether it's a concours classic, or a modern modified monster, you are welcome to park up in the Show Car Paddock. There’s no need to pre-enter, and anyone with a BMW can enter on the day for FREE.
Autoglym prizes and trophies for:
Best Of Show
Best New Mini
Don’t leave your car in the carpark where nobody can see it, get it round to the show & shine area, located behind the grandstand and you might be going home with a trophy.
Don’t forget to register your entry when you arrive in the show & shine area, registration is FREE.
Space is limited and the paddock fills up quickly so be sure to arrive early.
Attend the presentations to find out if you have won.
Please remember this isn’t a concours show, so we won’t be knocking off points for non-original brake pads, but we will be choosing cars on what we like the best purely on look and overall condition.
Club Displays / Club Camping
All BMWs welcome, classic and modern, race cars, retros, show cars and BMW bikes! To book a club stand you will need at least ten vehicles, then call 01234 782828. Club camping is also available, so why not stay for the weekend? Details on the Clubs page.
The Handling Circuit is perfect for people to test their driving skills not just their straight line speed! Put your driving ability to the test, or compete against your mates. The Handling Circuit will be FREE but you will need to fill in a disclaimer form and present a full driving licence. Full details on the Handling Circuit Page.
Trophies for the quickest time of the day.
Drift Passenger Rides
If you want the ultimate sideways fix, why not hop in with one of our experienced drifters, who will give you the ride of your life for a mere £10! Feel the g-force of these high-powered cars and get the best seat in the house for a smoky trip around the drift track. Simply visit the drift team at the drift track to register.
Drift What Ya Brung Session (BMW-only)
BMWs make great drift-machines, so if you’ve got a bit of spare tread on your tyres and would like a taste of over-steer, why not have a crack at our “drift what ya brung” taster session?
Simply bring your driving licence and car along to the drift track for a few minutes smoking your tyres under the direction of experienced drifters. Spaces are limited, so get in line in plenty of time for your turn. (10am - 4pm, £10 for 10 mins.)
Take a look at www.DWYB.co.uk for Drift What Ya Brung dates and full info.
Jet Funny Car
With a sound like thunder and 20ft flames spewing out the back of this 270mph monster, you won’t be able to miss the Fireforce Jet Car if you tried.
Keep your eyes peeled for other spectacular dragsters from national drag classes out on track too.
The Live Stage will have DJs playing all day.
There will be a range of traders selling everything from ICE to performance parts.
Cars for Sale Paddock

Whether you're buying, selling or browsing, this is the best way to shift cars at the show. And the best bit.? It's FREE for both buyers and sellers!
