I enquired to the cost of hiring Santa Pod for a Renault or Cliosport day only and here is there response, needless to say I laughed when I got it!
Thank you for your request of hiring Santa Pod Raceway for a private Run What Ya Brung day.
The basic price for an exclusive hire of the track for Run What Ya Brung day is £3,450+VAT . This will include the basic manning of marshals, timing-system, ambulance and security. If you choose to have your day as a public day the initial cost will be £2,850+VAT and in addition there will be a £10 per person gate fee charged which will be divided equally after VAT between yourself and Santa Pod Raceway. On both occasions each driver needs to pay the sign-on/insurance fee of £13 (2002) and £15 (2003) per person which will be kept by Santa Pod Raceway.
For a private day we have assumed that no more than 250 people will attend in total with a maximum of 150 using the drag strip and that Santa Pod would not be open to the public. If the event seems to be getting larger or you wish to have the event open to the public we would probably have to look in to adding more staffing which could accumulate additional costs.
For these types of days the gates open at 9am with signing on from 9.30am. The track will be open for runs (Weather & track condition permitting, you can not use the track when it is wet.) between 10am and 5pm with a 30 minutes (approx.) break for Lunch sometime between 1.00pm and 2.00pm
Please notice that all riders have to present a valid UK or European Drivers Licence on the day, and they will be required to sign a "Sign-on" form at the track.
A non-refundable deposit of £1300 + VAT will be required with the booking. Remaining balance for the hire to be paid no later than 30 days before the actual hire day or in instalment leading up to the hire day.
We do have regulations with regards to trading and catering, which can be discussed further at a later date.
Please let us know as soon as possible for available dates as our calendar is filling up rapidly.
I hope this information is helpful and we look forward hearing from you soon.
