Does anyone know of a drag venue nearer to me than Santa Pod and York Raceway?
These are the only drag racing venues I know of and since I live in Cornwall visiting either of them is a long drive. Surely there's a drag track of some description tucked away somewhere in the south west?

Shakespeare County Raceway, Warwickshire.

Web - www.shakespearecountyraceway.com

It's the closest for anybody based in the South West of the country I think.

Yup, shakey is the nearest to you that is a sanctioned track.. Although there may be some airfields that are used for drag type events closer..

Shakey isn't too far from the M5, so it shouldn't be too much of a drive, although if you want to race your road car, make sure you've got sufficient recovery cover... just in case!
