Despite the organisers taking all reasonable precautions, unavoidable accidents can happen. Please comply with all instructions of marshals and notices and remain in permitted areas only. They are concerned with your safety.

Please observe the following rules to ensure that your time at Santa Pod Raceway  and the European Mustang Nationals and that of all our other visitors is safe and enjoyable.

10 MPH Speed Limit Everywhere on Site! Except for the drag strip of course. Please watch your speed, there are many people walking around including young children. No quad bikes, mopeds or any other unlicensed motorised vehicles are allowed on site. No parking on any roadway – park only in the camping or parking areas and in accordance with the instructions of the parking marshals. No driving around the site after 9PM. No stunts, burnouts or donuts in roadways or campsites.

Motorsport can be loud. Ear Protection is recommended when in close proximity to the track especially for young children. Ear Protection is available to purchase from the merchandise outlets on site.

Medical assistance can be found at the Medical Centre, located at the bottom of the concrete ramp down the bank.

Security will be on site at all times throughout the event to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable time. Their instructions must be followed at all times. Please contact them in any emergency.

Anyone under the age of 16 wishing to attend MUST be accompanied by someone over the age of 18. Those who are ages 16 or 17 are allowed to attend unaccompanied, but we would strongly advise that this decision is made with the consent of a parent or legal guardian.

Please dispose of your litter in the refuse sacks provided and/or in the clearly marked bins throughout the site.

Please ensure all your valuables are carried with you or locked securely out of sight in your vehicle.

Never enter restricted areas, even if it looks safe.

For visitor safety and comfort – raised viewing structures, tents or BBQ are not permitted on the spectator banking. Low level chairs are accepted but must NOT be used on any pathways or access points.

Absolutely no open fires allowed. Only contained fires raised off the ground are permitted. This may include e.g. firepits, chimineas etc. BBQs are welcome but must be off the grass, on something safe and are only allowed in the campsites. After use let them cool properly and please dispose appropriately. If any fire or container is thought to present a risk of damage to the grass, then we may ask you to stop using it! Anyone found to be collecting wood from Santa Pod or adjoining private land will be ejected from the event.

No glass bottles, jars etc allowed on site. This is for you and your car’s safety and especially for those in the camping areas.

It is important that everyone understands why allowing animals at motor sports events poses a considerable hazard. The hazard is not just to humans but also the welfare of the animal itself.  The event promoter has a legal duty to acknowledge and eliminate hazards; those that cannot be eliminated must be properly controlled.

The RSPCA have conducted a campaign to reduce the noise levels of fireworks as it is widely acknowledged that they do cause damage to the hearing of animals. The current unacceptable noise level of fireworks is lower than levels recorded at drag strips in the UK.

Whilst it offends some people not to bring their animals to a venue, it is the only responsible way to act.  In addition to the above there are several instances every year of people being bitten by animals, predominantly dogs at events, clearly animals often react in this way for some reason which could be linked to anxiety as a result of noise, fumes and conditions, even if you are only located on a campsite some considerable distance away.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs will be admitted to the venue but if you are thinking of bringing your assistance dog with you, we would strongly recommend that you consider whether it is the right environment for your dog.

Assistance dogs must remain in the designated inclusion zone. This is located near the venue entrance. The exact location may vary according to the layout of the car parks/campsites.

It is strongly advised that you contact the Box Office prior to arrival to enable us to plan for ahead for your visit.

  • Legitimate ID will be required for owners and their dogs and must be presented on arrival.
  • (Training dogs are not permitted).
  • A designated “toileting” area will be available but owners/carers are responsible for the clearance and disposal of any waste.
  • Under no circumstances should dogs be left unattended in vehicles.
  • Any breach of these conditions may result in your admission tickets being revoked and your actions being reported to the relevant governing authorities.

Should you need any further advice on the welfare of your assistance dog, please contact your local Assistance Dog service provider.

This policy has been created in consultation with “Guide Dogs” UK Charity.

Independent sound systems are not allowed on site. Any music should be played at a reasonable level and all music should be switched off at 11PM.

Santa Pod Raceway  and the European Mustang Nationals does not condone the dealing in or use of illegal substances; if it’s illegal in the UK it’s also illegal within Santa Pod Raceway.

Anyone found in possession of larger quantities will be detained and dealt with by the police.
