The home of European Drag Racing “Santa Pod Raceway” has announced for a second year running that it will be inviting groups from schools and colleges to this year’s FIA European Drag Racing Championship events. Santa Pod Raceway is organising the programme of events in partnership with the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) and their online automotive careers resources and communities, which are based at www.autocity.org.uk. The scheme aims to help raise awareness of exciting career opportunities in the automotive industry.
The FIA Championship’s UK rounds take place in May and September and pit the cream of Europe’s fastest ‘Top Fuel’ and ‘Nitro Fuel’ cars in a head to head blaze of power that sees top entrants hitting 100mph in well under a second and covering a quarter mile in less than 5 seconds.
Santa Pod will be inviting students or apprentices, who are part of the 1st Gear or Accelerate communities, and groups from schools and colleges, to come and enjoy the racing on either Friday 24th May or Thursday 5th September completely free of charge.
