Das Auto Show - NEW FOR 2019
Sunday 2nd June 2019 at Santa Pod Raceway
With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 1st June 2019
The German car show comes to Santa Pod for Audi, BMW, Mercedes, VW, Porsche and more. With German only RWYB competition – which marque will come out on top? Plus, Show & Shine, club displays, DWYB and more.
German engineering takes over for “Das Auto Show”. German car manufacturers are extremely popular on the roads in the UK; whether you’re looking for an efficient hatchback, high performance monster or touch of class, the chances are you’ve at least thought about buying a German machine before. The modern line of performance vehicles makes them popular on the drag strip too with the likes of the BMW M series, Audi RS series, VW R and GTI series or even Mercedes AMG series all capable of recording some mightily impressive ¼ mile times. Then we have Porsche whose name speaks for itself in the automotive world! We can’t wait to see which one of these marque heavy weights ends up on top of the pile at the end of the weekend.
The drag strip will be open for you to take your own car down the track with performance print outs!
Sign-on costs £25 for unlimited runs. Make sure to bring along your driving licence. Trophies for quickest in class. Classes and more info on the RWYB page.
If you want maximum track time then come for the weekend as there is a RWYB on the Saturday with free camping for weekend ticket holders.
If you can't wait until Das Auto Show, visit www.RWYB.com for a full calendar of RWYB dates at Santa Pod Raceway.

This 1958 VW pick up spent most of her life on a farm in Oklahoma. Over the last 4 years the truck has undergone a total nut and bolt restoration and has been re-engineered to introduce modern components. The Rolls Royce Viper 535 jet engine is from a fighter jet with an afterburner added to produce a maximum power output of 5000 lbs of thrust which can be roughly translated to 5000 BHP.
There are licensed bars and caterers on site selling food and drink to suit all tastes and there are cash machines in the Shops. View details.
