I read about this on a forum apparently Santa Pod raceway put this on as a “thank you” to the locals. I would have thought given the amount of nutcase drivers the track attracts during the summer the last thing the locals would want would be people doing burn outs on their high street. How wrong could I be there was huge turn out (given the size of the place) and everyone around me at least knew the drivers by first name.

Huge Turnout  
Bikes Trikes
Trucks and of course cars

A couple of interesting fails

Car full of smoke Monster truck
“Glass” photographer 🙂  

After the parade I went for a walk up the high street and took so pictures of the car park

What happens when you fire up a dragster in the high street
