FIA/FIM European Finals 2015 - Thu 3rd to Sun 6th September
FIA European Drag Racing Championships Inc FIM Drag Bikes

Santa Pod Raceway is the home of adrenaline-fuelled European Drag Racing and the European Finals is the last round of the prestigious, televised FIA Championships. The fastest drag cars and bikes from across the continent battle it out to be the best. Close to 300 teams in 16 race classes make this event unrivalled for both the quality and quantity of racing with 300mph Top Fuel Dragsters, 5 second Pro Mod doorslammers and Supertwin Drag Bikes amongst those out on track. Alongside the international racers is a supporting line-up of cars and bikes competing in British championships classes.

If the racing wasn’t impressive enough, on the track in-between racing will be the awesome Fireforce Jet Funny Car and off track there will be Monster Truck battles and breathtaking stunts. There is something for everyone to enjoy at Santa Pod making it a firm family favourite with kids entertainment, trade stalls, fun fair rides, full catering & bar facilities throughout the weekend and evening entertainment in the Fuelers Bar.

Despite the incredibly packed itinerary, the European Finals is still the best value ticket in motorsport with the kids getting in for free, it could be the best family weekend that you’ve ever enjoyed! Corporate packages are similarly good value, with fully catered VIP packages available.
