BMW Show


Sunday 8th July 2018 at Santa Pod Raceway
with Saturday Night Special RWYB Saturday 7th July 2018

The BMW Show at Santa Pod Raceway welcomes all BMWs - 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.

What's On At BMW Show

RWYBRun What Ya Brung (BMWs only)
Get your car out on the famous ¼ mile for just £25 for UNLIMITED runs on the track! Full performance print out for your runs.

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

To enter the RWYB, simply enter on the day. You will need to bring your normal road driving licence to enter. Drivers of soft-top vehicles and those doing 110mph+ at the finish line will need a crash helmet. Full details

If you want maximum track time then come for the weekend as there is a Saturday Night Special RWYB on the Saturday with the track open late and free camping for weekend ticket holders.

Autoglym prizes and trophies for:

  2. Space is limited so be sure to arrive early.
