|Santa Pod drag strip are doing another Run What Ya Brung day open to the public this Sunday - you can drive your own car up the track - just bring your driving licence and register when you get there. Or just turn up and watch
Details from their site: more info at www.rwyb.co.uk
"Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire offers the cheapest and most accessible public track time in the UK.
From just £10 admission and £25 to "sign on", you can take your car or motorcycle out on the famous quarter-mile dragstrip and test it's performance limits in a safe and legal environment.
You don't have to apply for a race licence or own a supercar, most drivers who come along will be racing in normal road cars and bikes. Some participants may have modified cars or even be professional racers in their drag cars but don't worry, you won't be pitched against a 300mph Top Fuel Dragster!
All you need is a valid driving licence (UK, European or International), £10 for admission and a £25 signing-on fee (prices are for standard RWYB days). You'll be entitled to unlimited runs and you'll receive a personal performance print-out showing your reaction times to the start lights, 60ft, 1/4 mile, 1/8 mile times and terminal speed.
Throughout the year there are also specialist events and festivals which incorporate Run What Ya Brung, including car only, bike only and manufacturer-specific events. Prices vary for these events, please see the Dates page for more info.
The venue normally opens at 8.00am with track runs starting at 9:30am - 5pm, weather and track conditions dependant. Opening times vary for specialist events.
Some RWYB meetings are busier than others, longer waiting times can be expected at a RWYB before a big Drag Race meeting as drag cars testing take longer to stage. On the plus side you sometimes get to see Europe's fastest cars running on the same strip as you.
Please note that RWYB spaces are sold on a first come first served basis as we can only service a certain amount of customers on each day.
Don't forget your driving licence! Helmets are required for all bikes and open top cars, and any vehicles doing 110 mph or more at the finish line. Arm straps required in open top cars."
