Great weekend away with the lads. Well organised camping areas. Toilets nice and clean. Food fairly reasonably priced. Drag racing action on all day, live action arena with drifting displays most of the day. Loads of retailers and car clubs there.

Follow signs to Poddington - NOT the sat nav on Santa Pod tickets. first race is usually 9.30am. I would get there about 8.30am.
Which grandstand section offers the best viewing point for the drag races? Also, rows/seats? I've been looking at the first section, J36-37 (about 1/3rd of the way up, on the end of the row but in the middle).

I agree with Jeff, halfway is where I sit. As well as cushions ( essential ) take a blanket as it can be a bit windy. DON'T forget your earplugs . Have a great day.....Lee
