THERE’S less than a month to go until Race, Rock ‘n’ Ride – the brand-new biking extravaganza from Santa Pod Raceway, Fast Bikes and Backstreet Heroes.
Race, Rock ’n’ Ride, sponsored by Principal Insurance, will take place on the weekend of May 21-22, offering two days of non-stop biking action at one of the world’s most famous drag racing venues.
There’s a jam-packed schedule of live entertainment taking place throughout the weekend, with wheelie competitions, monster trucks displays, drag racing demonstrations, top stunt riders, including Mr Showtime Steve Colley, and trade stands offering an abundance of fascinating fodder for all kinds of motor sport enthusiasts.
Back Street Heroes will sponsor a Show & Shine for retro rides, custom bikes and everything in between, while Fast Bikes will lend its name to the venue’s popular Run What Ya Brung offering showgoers the chance to experience Santa Pod’s iconic drag strip first-hand in their own vehicle.
Race, Rock ‘n’ Ride will also feature a plethora of static bike displays, from modern machines and customs right through to classic race bikes — if you love two wheels, then we promise you’ll not want to miss this.
There will also be the chance to witness a world record breaking FireForce jet car — capable of clocking up a ground-shaking 336mph in 5.763 seconds – while those daring enough can also take part in two-seater dragster rides which hit an eye-watering top speed of 170mph in just eight seconds. And with round five of the Straightliners Drag Racing Championships running over the weekend, there’ll be no shortage of high octane thrills.
The action will continue into the evening as Europe’s leading AC/DC tribute Live/Wire play a high-voltage, two-hour set of in-your-face, undiluted rock on Saturday evening, as part of the two-day motorcycling extravaganza.
The live performance, which is exclusive to weekend ticket holders, is sure to be among the highlights of what is set to be a superb weekend celebrating everything with two wheels.
One day advance tickets can be purchased for just £13* for adults – a 35% saving on gate price – or a whole weekend pass, which includes camping and entry to the evening entertainment, is just £23*.
*Booking fees apply. Advance ticket sales close at 5pm on May 13, 2016
