FIA/FIM European Finals 2017
Thu 7th to Sun 10th September 2017

The fastest drag cars and bikes from across the continent battle it out to be the best with hundreds of teams in 20 race classes make this event unrivalled for both quality and quantity of racing. If the racing wasn’t impressive enough, there will also be Jet Cars and off track there will be Monster Truck and Stunt Displays.

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.
