Santa Pod - Run What Ya Brung, Sun 5th April

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys and Gals,

After the good turnout from the last Santa Pod meet weve decided to arrange another in a months time (Sunday 5th April). If anyone is up for taking on the Corolla TS and TS-C's then please feel free to put your name down and come along! It would be good to have some more members of TOC present. Especially some of the Supra/MR2/Celica/Auris guys ;) And of course theres always plenty of room for Aygo's too after SJ and Paul battled it out at the last event!!

It is a Run What Ya Brung (RWYB) Event, for those that dont know what this is, you turn up in your own car, pay your money and run timed 1/4 mile's until you either run out of fuel or it gets dark. The entrance fee into Santa Pod is £10 and to take part in running you car on the drag strip its an Extra £25 unlimited runs on the Drag Strip.

There is already a fair amount of interest in this on the Corolla Forum. So it would be great to have some other TOC members there mixing it up! If anyone is interested just state your interest or meet us there!

As per the last event the meeting point will be as follows meeting up between 8:00 and 9:00 aiming to arrive at Santa Pod for 9:30 to 10:00.

The location, MacDonalds @ Sixfields Football Stadium. Its easy to find from J15A on the M1. Roughly 1mile. Its not the most direct meeting place for going to Pod but its certainly on of the easiest for anyone coming near the M1 to Northampton.

Santa Pod is all but a 15/20 minute local drive from here.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
