Event Description

As the season begins to wind down Shakespeare County Raceway presents another of its no pressure fun weekends for all owners of quick cars and bikes as well as clubs to attend.

The California Look Drag Day is a drag racing event based around the spirit of 60’s and 70’s California, surrounded by fire breathing Aircooled Race cars and Cal Lookers held at Warwickshire's Shakespeare County Raceway. Besides the normal RWYB racing is open to flat four VW powered vehicles that are capable of completing the ¼ mile in under 15.99 seconds. This event is ALL ABOUT RACING, aimed at the true petrol heads of the VW scene. The camaraderie of fellow racers and the roar of the flat four is the entertainment, dressing up is strictly limited to race suits and helmets. Any dancing which takes place, is from inside the vehicle and involves a steering wheel and an attempt to launch in a straight line. We hope to welcome as many of Europe’s finest Hot VW’s along to the raceway for this, the second of two yearly VW Cal Look Drag Days. So let the DKW Birthday celebrations begin. 

Public Track Weekend:
Racing a mate over the quarter mile is still the purest and easiest way to get a genuine racing fix. Open to all makes and models of cars and motorcycles (literally ANY motor where talking about), the weekend's Test & Tune gives you the thrill and competitive straight line speed without getting zapped by those annoying road side cameras or getting an unnecessary speeding ticket! The only cameras pointing at you will be the track side photographers. And the only tickets you'll receive will be your own personal performance printout registering your reaction time, 60ft, eighth mile and overall time and speed. Its fast and its accessible to a variety of ages and vehicles in a safe and legal environment. It really is as simple as that. Car and motorcycle clubs are welcome to come along and display or give it a blast down the drag strip! Just give us a call.

Get Your Club Involved:
If you are looking for a venue to hold a club day, then look no further and combine your next meeting with one of our Run What Ya Brung weekends. we can offer your club your own dedicated club area. The only cost to you would be the normal £12 admission fee and £25/£40 sign-on fee for unlimited runs of the track. After each run on the track your members will receive a performance printout so you'll be able to organise your own Run What Ya Brung competition and award the quickest and fastest racer of the day, accordingly of course!

If you would like to book your club in for a RWYB Public Track Weekend then please call 01789 720180 or e-mail: Alternatively leave us a message on our Facebook page.
