Probably one of the most unusual venues in the UK and one deserving of much more publicity. Something for everyone, run by friendly people.

This place is perfect to all the familys who love the power, the smell of the fuel! There's a fun fair, where you can spend your time, when no action on the track. Very good food at the Pod Café. :)
