The Ford Show

The Ford Show - NEW FOR 2019

Sunday 7th July 2019 at Santa Pod Raceway

With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 6th July 2019

The blue oval takes over Santa Pod 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.
