Do we want a stand? Like anything else at Santa Pod it's not the cheapest thing with crap amenities but it's another get together.

How do,

I made it to Kitfest at Santa Pod on Saturday and there wasn’t much to see. When asking about tickets at the gate the lady didn’t even know it was on and was only aware of the Retro meet on the Sunday and it was run what you brung on the Saturday. Mainly Cateram style kits but lots of drag bikes and cars that were wanting to test themselves on the strip so not an entirely wasted journey. (Won’t be doing it again though)

Such a shame as we need another show, but I suspect the weather put most people off

Indeed. There was potential but not much in the way of facilities. There was camping and quite a large paddock/pit area but it’s not a ‘show ground’ like Stoneleigh, it’s a drag strip and that’s what it’s set up for.

We did Mini in the park there 12 years ago (guess) not sure they ever went back it was just a mud pit, to say it's an International venue for drag racing it's to me an embarrassment
