Update on Santa Pod Future Events: Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, it is with deep regret that Santa Pod Raceway announces the following events at Santa Pod are suspended.

  • Straightliners – Sun 22nd March
  • The Fast Show (inc. Sat Night Special) – Sat 28th/Sun 29th March
  • Mimms Honda Day – Sun 5th April
  • Festival of Power (inc. Test Day) – Friday 10th/Sunday 12th April
  • GTI Spring Festival – Sun 19th April

At the current time, all other events until 30th April remain under review.

We ask all our customers to be patient with us at this time and NOT to flood our Box Office with calls and emails when pressure is at its highest as this could be counterproductive. Rest assured, we will be contacting all customers with further details on arrangements regarding tickets and rescheduled event dates. We would like to thank you for your understanding during these very challenging circumstances.

We are absolutely devastated to not be running these season opening events given the far-reaching impact it will have; not forgetting the financial implications and the huge amount of preparation and work that our staff, teams and fans have put into the planning. It is only with your support that we can host the shows and race events that we all know and love.

Safety at Santa Pod Raceway

At Santa Pod Raceway the safety and welfare of racegoers and participants is paramount. As part of our responsibilities towards visitors and participants, we have put the following in place:

Santa Pod may continue, where possible and appropriate to run smaller events. In line with Government advice on social gatherings we will restrict numbers attending and discourage people from vulnerable groups including children from attending these events.

As a matter of course, there will be increased focus by our Safety Team during events, on any vulnerabilities relating to the virus. Virus control will be a priority at all pre-event meetings and daily briefing agendas.

Pre-event communication advising all customers to follow official government public health advice, which can be found here www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Posters around the raceway as a reminder of public health advice, which includes washing your hands regularly with soap and hot water. Santa Pod has numerous permanent toilet and washroom blocks on site and additional staff will operate in all toilet areas to ensure that soap, hot water and drying facilities are constantly available. “Be a Handwashing Champion!”

Your enjoyment is our priority so please refer to the Essential Information/Terms and Conditions relating to the purchase of tickets and general guidance for attending our venue.
