Drag Racing: Santa Pod

Drag Racing | Sep 1992

Santa Pod, a former WWII bomber station (Poddington Airfield). Situated near Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

September 1992

My first time to the Pod, and it was a 'News of the World' free entry promotion to the World Finals. Seeing and feeling the power of the Top Fuel dragsters was truely memorable. So was the rain at 5pm, and then a 2.5 hour queue to get out of the car park.
