NSX Showdown – Track day at SantaPod Raceway
On the 1st June 2017, Chiswick Honda hired the Santa Pod raceway for the day. On the day, the Honda NSX took on the CBR100RR Fireblade SP and the Ferrari 488 Spider in two separate races.
Santa Pod Raceway, located in Podington, Bedfordshire, England, is Europe’s first permanent drag racing venue. It was built on a disused Second World War air base, (RAF Podington), once used by the 92nd Bomber Group. The drag racing venue opened at Easter in 1966, and it is now the home of European drag racing and has grown substantially over its 40-year existence. It hosts both the first and last round of the FIA and FIM/UEM European Drag Racing Championship, along with the British National Drag Racing Championships. Santa Pod remains the fastest all-asphalt dragstrip in the world since most North American tracks are partially or entirelyconcrete in construction.
