For the first time in a while we’re racing on just one day of competition at Snetterton with our East Anglian Centre, but it’s a day set to be filled with excellent tin-top saloon car action from start to finish!
The day’s action on the 300 circuit is headed up by the first ever visit from TCR UK and the Dunlop Touring Car Trophy, making their Snetterton debut and ready to tackle the long straights and twisting infield section. Snetterton is a favourite among touring car drivers up and down the country and it’s possible that many of the cars competing in this series will have raced here in previous years. That said, it will be interesting to watch how they tackle corners like Riches, the Wilson Hairpin, the Brundle and Nelson esses, the Bomb Hole and Coram at racing speeds as the season rumbles on to make its Norfolk debut. Once again with them in support on the timetable are the Volkswagen Racing Cup, a great proving ground for potential future touring car drivers and catering to a wide variety of VW and VAG Group machines.
Also making an appearance on this race day are the Fiesta Championship and Fiesta Junior Championship, both of which are superb saloon car series in their own right. The senior level Fiesta Championship has shown to be an intense battleground as drivers compete in Mk6 ST150 and Mk7 Zetec S models together on track against one another, and the racing that results is usually incredibly exciting and thrilling. The same can also be said for the racing stars of the future competing in the Fiesta Junior Championship, where 14-17 year old racers battle it out to come out on top and make a key step in their fledgling racing careers.
Rounding off the schedule and making a trip to East Anglia from their South Eastern home, the Classic & Modern Motorsport Club Southern Centre is expected to bring its Super Saloons, Production Saloons and Intermarque Silhouettes to the table for some added excitement.
