The Ford Car Show

The Ford Show

Sunday 5th July 2020 at Santa Pod Raceway

With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 4th July 2020

The blue oval takes over Santa Pod at a car show for Fords of all types, classic ford and modern. With RWYB, Ford Drag Demos, club displays, live entertainment, stunts and lots more!

Founded in 1903, we’ve seen our fair share of Ford models on the drag strip in our 52 years and they are still popular today in the National championship ranks. Fords of all shapes and sizes can be found from the entry levels right up to the Pro Modified class which is the pinnacle of doorslammer racing. The Ford Show however, is not just for the drag racing and muscle car hardcore with heavy emphasis on the modern hot hatches and performance models as well as the popular classics such as the early Escorts, Capri’s, Cortina’s, and everything in between! Use of the track is not only permitted, but encouraged as is entry into the Autoglym Show & Shine competition and club stand bookings.

TICKETS: Adult Tickets from £14 - Kids Under 13 FREE* Buy Tickets

Terry Grant

Terry Grant Stunt Shows

Car show legend Terry Grant will be here performing stunts and drifting his way around the Live Action Arena. Terry makes donuts, J turns, parallel turns and 2 wheel driving look easy which allows him to do things that have to be seen to be believed.

Drag DemosKA Football

Who doesn’t love mindless carnage? We certainly do and car football is one of our favourite games! It is exactly as it sounds, 6 disposable KAs, 1 giant football, a goal at each end of the “pitch” and 6 disposable drivers. Only 1 team can win, sit back on the bank or in the stands and watch the chaos unfold.

Drag DemosDrag Demos

There will be bonkers Ford drag racing cars hitting the strip throughout the day. We have no less than 15 exhibition cars; from crazy FWD turbo’d Fiestas to Supercharged V8 Anglias, this eclectic mix of cars will showcase what they can do on the famous quarter mile! Keep your eyes peeled on the strip as these exhibition cars are put through their paces; plus, pay them a visit in the pits where the drivers will be happy to talk to you.


Roger Goring's state of the art Ford Mustang bodied Jet car is one of only 3 centre drive Jet Funny Cars in the world and the only one outside of the USA.

Handling Circuit
