The annual Mr & Miss USC competition has created heroes and careers … and as ever, YOU can be part of the legend! If you want the chance to WIN £200 CASH, and if you want to be in all the magazines, this is the time and the place. All contestants will have their admission cost refunded.
All it takes is a lot of guts and huge sense of fun. You don’t have to have the model physique or the face of an angel… but it can of course help. We’ll be testing competitors skills with a series of mini games but it's the audience who have the final say, and winning them over is the ultimate aim.
Open to competitors over 18 years old, and may not be suitable for young spectators.
Saturday night at USC is "flame night" as the biggest flaming exhausts in Europe compete to amaze and amuse the crowd with an awesome fire show!
More info on the Flame Out page.
If you've got a car that goes around corners like a go-kart, then why not have a crack at the handling circuit? It's FREE to enter and just for fun, but it's yet another way you can play with your car at USC, and you don't need mega-power to have fun. In fact, the top cars on the handling circuit are nearly always the little 'uns.
More info on the Handling page.
It wouldn’t be The Fast Show without something really bloomin’ fast, and they don’t get much faster than a 270mph Jet Car. Witness the power and feel the noise of the Fireforce 3 Jet Funny Car.
If your car looks great and has some serious power then Show & Go is the competition for you. Points are scored both on the track and in the show paddock. Full details on the Show & Go page.

The Fast Show
Long before USC, the first big modified car show of the year at Santa Pod raceway is The Fast Show on Sunday 2nd April 2017. Full details at www.thefastshow.com.
1) EXIT & RE-ENTRY GUIDE: USC is one of Santa Pod’s busiest and most popular events in the calendar and we have a large number of visitors using rural routes through our neighbouring villages. To relieve our local communities of unnecessary traffic during the event, USC operates a strict re-entry policy to minimise disruption: visitors choosing to leave the venue anytime during the weekend will need to pay to re-enter the venue even if they have already purchased a ticket. So, please bring all of the camping supplies that you will need for the weekend including enough petrol/diesel! Your continued cooperation in this matter is always appreciated and keeps the USC vibe alive.
2) No glass bottles, jars etc allowed on site. This is for you and your car's safety and especially for those in the camping areas. Cars will be searched on arrival.
3) Chinese lanterns are banned at Santa Pod Raceway as they pose a real fire hazard to the crops and thatched roofs surrounding the track.
4) When you arrive and leave site, please keep your speed down, don't litter and respect local residents.
