PistonHeads RV3 build thread over the past few months, and we're pleased to announce that the hard work has almost paid off, as Andy and the RV team prepare to make their maiden voyage up the strip.
The 'Main Event' at Santa Pod on 27th-30th May will see Red Victor run the quarter as part of a full line-up of drag racing and, thanks to our involvement with the car (look out for the smileys as Andy blasts past), we have managed to secure a great ticket offer to help PHers cheer RV3 on.
To put the speed into perspective, racer Tommy Johnson Jr. broke his first four-second run at only 22 years of age and has a career best ET of just 4.672 and countless 330mph-plus tickets to his name. Rather rapid then.
Car classes running over the weekend include:
FIA Top Fuel Dragster - 300mph dragsters, big race entry
FIA Top Methanol Dragsters - five-second dragsters, close racing
FIA Top Methanol Funny Car - 3000bhp and close racing
FIA Pro Stock Car - Real cars, real close racing!
FIA/MSA Pro Modified - 200mph Hot Rods
Super Pro ET
UEM Supertwin Bike - Thundering 700bhp motorcycles
UEM Top Fuel Bike - 200mph, 1000bhp drag bikes
UEM Pro Stock Bike - Screaming, petrol-burning motorcycles
Of course you can attend any day you choose, but true to PH style we will arrange special PH parking on the Sunday if the demand is there. Andy also suggests Sunday is a great day to come and see RV3 do its thing. PHers can claim a 20 per cent discount when buying tickets by quoting the code PH11ME when booking.
To book please visit www.santapod.com or call the team on 01234 782828.

Good luck Andy; we can't wait to see Red Victor in action and are proud that you are carrying the PH smiley!
