Snetterton

Norfolk's Snetterton circuit was original an RAF airfield. The circuit itself was created in 1951 from the network of remaining runways and its first race event was by the Aston Martin Owner's Club.

The Snetterton circuit hosts rounds of the BTCC, British Superbike Championship and British F3 and GT Championships and boasts three circuit configurations. In addition to the 300, the 200's layout retains the old circuit's character and can be run simultaneously with the short 100 loop.

The circuit configuration has changed several times. In the 1960s and early 70s it was 2.7 miles in length. During this period the Russell Bend was added in order to slow vehicles as they approached the pits. Since the 1970s the lap was shortened to just under two miles until the track was redeveloped in 2010.

Snetterton has hosted many significant events over the past six decades, including UK's first ever 24 hour race, the Willhire 24 Hour, which ran from 1980 to 1994.

In addition to racing, Snetterton is also a renowned testing venue and has been used to develop a host of race winning cars.

You'll find the circuit 10 miles north-east of Thetford on the A11 from London to Norwich.
