Snetterton was built on a airfield in the 1950s and made the most of the space with some long, super quick straights that gave rise to its reputation as one of the fastest circuits in the country.
A redevelopment that was completed in 2011 saw the track extended by the addition of a twisty infield section enhancing the technical challenge and we use this layout, known as the 300, for our trackdays. A full resurface was completed at the same time and along with being wide and flat with plenty of run off this makes for a novice friendly circuit. None of the character of the old circuit has been lost and for more experienced riders the challenge of setting up the correct line on to the fast straights, or getting the approach to the deceptive Esses or Riches remains. Along with the work on the track, the facilities on site have also had an upgrade and the inclusion of three elevated viewing areas makes it great for spectators.
