Big Band Camper and Bus Show 2017

We had a lovely fun day out at Santa Pod Raceway in April.

We were thrilled to see the number of families camping and felt a really great vibe which was a really lovely start to the day.

There were a variety of food and drink stalls to cater for everyone’s tase and the welcoming smell of pancakes and coffee were irrisistable.

Seeing families walking around and sitting on the banks as well as in the stands enjoying the festival was great too.

There was plenty to see in the Show & Shine, Rust & Rat Competions as well as the Trade Area and Show Paddock.

The racing itself was very intertaining starting with some drag racing.

Some cars were more entertaining than others.

with the show stoppers Oaklama Will the Jet Bus which unfortunately seemed to lose some of it’s oomph.

and of course the show stopper of the day the FireForce Jet Dragster. This was difficult to photograph due to the excessive speed and you could feel the speed the way the grandstand and air vibrated as it went past.

We’ll definitely be back at Santapod soon and hopefully with our own camping gear this time.
