The Vauxhall Show

The Vauxhall Show - NEW FOR 2019

Sunday 28th April 2019 at Santa Pod Raceway

With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 27th April 2019

Vauxhalls take over Santa Pod with Vauxhall only RWYB, club displays, Show & Shine, Jet Car, FWD Drag Series and more!

The famous Griffin comes to Santa Pod in the form of The Vauxhall Show welcoming everything from performance Vauxhall Astras to custom Viva’s to the drag strip and show ground alike. As well as being renowned for reliability, affordability and even modify-ability(!?), Vauxhalls have become a popular choice for everyone from new drivers to the current crop of everyday day petrol heads. The drag strip will be ready and waiting for abuse so VXR owners should need no encouragement to make the most of an opportunity to drop the clutch and test their vehicles performance in a safe and legal environment.
