DRAGSTRIP ACTION

2019 saw VW Action live up to its name once again, with many cars from the European mainland and a large field of extremely quick race and street VWs including Cal-Lookers from the SAS Rennwagens and DKR, OF/F and VWDRC racecars along with the Split Buses of the BWA and Bays of the USB. We were also joined by the boys and girls from the Old Skool Fords, Taz Racing and Outlaw Street and the spectacular Supercharged Outlaws. The stars of the 2019 show were without doubt the mad water-coolers of 'Boba' Kettler and Silviu Ghita and Arndt Putzmann in his bonkers turbo Bug.

This year we expect to see a similarly strong field of British and European VWs. The Run What You Brung/Test and Tune sessions will again take place during both the Saturday and Sunday daytime, where many VWs from Europe and the UK will feature amongst an open field with everything from Fuel cars to (VAG only) street cars taking part. Throughout the weekend you will be able to test and tune your own car on the dragstrip, just remember to bring your driving licence. (There is an additional 'signing on' fee to take part in these activities - currently £25 per day.) Please see HERE for Santa Pod's RWYB rules and regulations.

VW Action introduced the VW Action 'Speed Club' for all sub 13 second VWs running at the event. Backed up 12.99 to 12.00 gains automatic entry into the '12 second club', and a 12 second club trophy (A VW Action 'Oscar' engraved "12 SECOND CLUB"). 11.99 to 11.00, 10.99 to 10.00, and 9.99 to 9.00 similarly have their respective clubs, all of which have trophies for every new member, and all of which will be recorded and records maintained, on the VW Action website. Entry into these exclusive clubs is automatic and free on the production of two timing tickets with 1% of each other. We are looking to induct further members into every one of these clubs during the weekend.

NIGHT RACING £1000+ PRIZE FUND!

The night racing at VW Action - without doubt most spectator's favourite session of the weekend - now has a prize fund, to be shared between the quickest VWs on the track on Saturday evening. Thanks to the generosity of companies and individuals who have donated/sponsored, the prize fund currently stands at £1000+ to be split amongst the quickest 10 VW cars and quickest 5 VW buses in this session.

VW ACTION £1000+
PRIZE FUND!

Runs made during the daytime on Saturday and Sunday will count for the various VW Action Speed Clubs etc., but ONLY runs made during the official night racing session will attract prize money.

European cars visiting on free ferry tickets WILL be elegible. See here for details of HELP WITH TRAVEL FROM EUROPE

VW Action will also feature an awesome array of the very fastest demo cars the sport has to offer. This has once again been made possible by the fact that VW Action is a week before the 'FIA European Finals', and a number of cars have taken the opportunity to get some testing in before they race in earnest. There should be Top Fuel cars from across Europe, capable of running the quarter-mile in less than 5 seconds and speeds in excess of 300mph. You will also be able to check out the the fastest 'doorslammers' around, and many other 'demo' drag racers, testing for the FIA European Finals. Also look out for Supercharged Nitro and Alcohol burning Rails, Slingshots and Funny Cars of the Supercharged Outlaws - fantastic in the dusk. Look out too for the Old Skool Ford and Taz Racing boys and girls and Outlaw Street racers - all of whom should all be out in force.

Once again, VW Action will feature Night Racing on the Saturday Evening and add to all this, the Fireforce Jet Car and there really is something for everyone on the track at VW Action.
