One of the highlights of the classic Ford calendar is returning to Santa Pod this June and Admiral is delighted to be sponsoring the event!

The Classic Ford Show will take place at the famous Santa Pod drag strip in Podington, Bedfordshire, and will play host to thousands of the best Fords in Britain, from both club exhibitors and individual entrants.

There will be a wide variety of standard, tuned and modified cars on display at the show, which is supported by Classic Ford.

As well as display cars from Anglias to Zodiacs, Cosworths to Cortinas, the event will feature an exclusive Ford-only Run What Ya Brung on the drag strip, open to show visitors and their cars. The quarter-mile contest will give guests the chance to pit their own Fords against each other, and drivers will receive a full performance print out showing reaction time, terminal speed and the time it took to complete the sprint.

Ford Drag Car demos

Another major highlight of the show will be a series of Ford Drag Car demos, featuring some of Santa Pod’s most famous Ford-based dragsters, which are always a huge hit at the show. The hotted-up Capris, Sierras, Anglias, Fiestas and more will be available to view in the pit area, where showgoers can get up close to the cars and their drivers.

Santa Pod will also be doing a few runs with the strip’s famous FireForce Jet Car.  Powered by the engine from a Skycrane helicopter and putting out approximately 10,000bhp and 5,000lbs of thrust, FireForce has the fastest terminal speed of any Jet Car in the world – it’s an impressive beats to look at, and even more awe-inspiring to hear.

For the first time, Admiral is sponsoring the event and the classic car team are excited to be on-hand at the event.

Proud Ford Capri owner, all-round-motoring-enthusiast and Classic Car Project Manager at Admiral, Adrian Dalton, said: “At Admiral, we know how passionate owners are about their classic cars and we are too. We understand the level of devotion, care and attention lavished upon these cars and we aim to make sure the cover we provide matches.

“We are very excited and extremely proud to be the headline sponsor of this year’s Classic Ford Show at Santa Pod; this event has proven to be a great day out in the past and this year will be no exception. Whether you are an owner or a fan of these cars, there promises to be something for everyone to enjoy and we look forward to seeing you on the day.”


The show takes place on Sunday 5th June at Santa Pod and there is camping on site complete with a bar and live entertainment.

Camping is £10 per person on the gate or an early bird ticket which includes show entry is £25 per person. Early bird show tickets without camping cost £18 or £23 on the gate.
