Snetterton has undergone somewhat of a renaissance during the recent years following a multi-million pound redevelopment project at the start of 2011, which was met with rave reviews from both spectators and competitors alike. Its combination of long straights and a wide variety of turns challenges both power and handling.
Drawing inspiration from iconic motorsport corners such as Monza's Parabolica and the Montreal Hairpin, the Snetterton 300 circuit hosts the British Touring Car Championship, British Superbike Championship, British Truck Racing Championship and British GT and F4 Championships.
A packed racing programme includes historic racing, including the Autosport Three Hour meeting and an eclectic range of club car and bike action on the 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, which is popular with Sprint competitors.
In addition to racing, Snetterton is a popular test track and has been used to develop a host of vehicles including the Williams F1-designed Formula Two car and various Le Mans machinery including the Bentley Speed 8, and the futuristic Nissan Deltawing and ZEOD cars.
