The beginning of August witnessed Santa Pod Raceway opening its gates for the Nostalgia Drags whilst also allowing race fans in to quench a long awaited thirst for some track action. The event was carefully planned with permission granted by the local authorities for crowds to attend obviously at a social distance between groups and continuous sanitising of seating in the bleachers. There were no Big Show vehicles just a great selection of nostalgia classes running either eliminations or their own class rules for trophies.

Plans are being made by Santa Pod to run a Big Show event to replace the Euro Finals over the 11-13th September 2020 now named Not The Euro Finals. A race event to give the nitro starved race fans of Great Britain a great dose of the ultimate fuel. It is hoped to have Top Fuel, Funny Car in the fuel ranks plus Pro Modified and many Sportsman racers.
