BMW SHOW 2016

Sunday 19th June 2016 at Santa Pod Raceway
with RWYB Saturday 18th June 2016

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.

BMW Show 2016 Report:

This year’s BMW Show saw a big change moving from the end of September to the prime of the season in the middle of June. Speed and power was again the order of the day with some of the finest German machinery on display. 

The Run What Ya Brung was very busy with some very quick BM’s and some awesome burnouts to match! A big thanks goes to the drag demos Paul Brown and Billy Gane who were running 8s all day. Martin Hill was without doubt the quickest runs of the day with a 5.83 @ 269.8mph and a 5.86 @ 269.74.

The Autoglym Show & Shine Paddock filled up quickly and with the standard very high and some exquisite show cars on display, after much deliberation the judges came up with these winners.
The Handling Track was again dominated by 3 series, with Connor just pipping Eriks to the post by 0.3 seconds.

There’s one thing that definitely goes hand in hand and that is BMW owners and drifting! The top end of the pits was in a cloud of smoke for most of the day. Terry Grant was on top form as always with some fantastic precision driving at its best.

We would again like to thank Thorney Motorsport who have supported the show for the last 3 years supplying prizes for both the Handling Track and RWYB competitions. We would also like to thank all the clubs for their continued support with the BMW Show.
